This Grand 1907 Mansion Inn In Nebraska Will Make You Feel Like Royalty
Getting away from home for a night or two is a pretty rare treat for most of us, so we love to find the most interesting spots to spend our vacation or staycation time. Tucked away in the little city of Cambridge, Nebraska is a unique, historic spot that will make you wish you never had to go home.
Cambridge, located in Furnas County, is a lovely little southwestern Nebraska community with a whole lot to offer residents and guests.
Next time you're visiting, book a room at the Cambridge Bed & Breakfast. This mansion, built in 1907, is a stunning example of neoclassical architecture that has been carefully maintained for more than a century.
Inside, most of the mansion's original features and details remain intact.
The original lighting fixtures and woodwork are truly marvelous.
The building was designed by famed architect W. F. Gernandt and built for Cambridge's first mayor, William H. Faling.
The resplendent dining room displays the original, hand-painted faux bois ceiling. Although in need of restoration, this work of art is still remarkable.
Shared spaces in the B&B allow guests the opportunity to socialize or simply enjoy the surroundings.
Walk around the home to appreciate all of the details up close; pictures really don't do it justice. This tree of life stained glass window is especially beautiful.
You can also ask your hosts anything you'd like to know about the mansion or the community. They are lifelong Cambridge residents who are happy to tell you all about this unique home and the town it occupies.
When it's time to relax, head back to one of the four guest rooms. While each has its own unique characteristics, they are all large and lovely with comfortable beds and memorable artwork.
Each room has a private bath and linens that will remind you of the finest hotels. Staying here is like combining the best parts of staying with family and staying at a fancy hotel.
This is the perfect getaway for couples who want to reconnect or those looking to explore this scenic part of Nebraska. It's affordable enough that you can save some of your vacation fund for a nice dinner or two. But don't worry about breakfast - a sumptuous morning feast is included with your room at Cambridge Bed & Breakfast.
Cambridge Bed & Breakfast is located at 606 Parker Street, Cambridge, Nebraska 69022. Find out more, including the building’s history and how to book a room, on the B&B’s
