This cozy room was named after a local pioneer family in the Brewster area. The view is out to our balcony and North room with views of the river.
Uncle Buck's Lodge is a charming, one-of-a-kind experience. The place is full of family history and memorabilia. Marilyn is a delightful hostess and a terrific cook. If you are traveling the Sandhills Scenic Byway, Brewster is definitely worth the short drive to stay at this delightful lodge.
We had a wonderful stay! We will definitely be back. Marilyn was a great hostess. Room was clean. View was fantastic. Food was delicious. And Marilyn was right, the water is amazing! My husband and I enjoyed a peaceful night and the view from the deck. I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Sandhills!
I live in Illinois along the Mississippi River. My two sons live in Denver, Colorado. Since I refuse to fly (although I will take the train), I drive the distance back and forth several times a year. Friends often wonder how I can stand to cross Nebraska so often. "It's so flat and dull," they say. Along Interstate 80, I suppose that's true, but lately I've taken to driving alternate routes, staying away from the interstate. On this last trip, I decided to follow Nebraska Highway 91 and 2 through the sandhill country. I wondered if there might be an Airbnb host along the way, and, to my complete surprise, there was. Marilyn runs Uncle Buck's Lodge in Brewster, Nebraska (population 17), a long way from anyplace "important". And when she says lodge, she means it. High-beamed ceiling, glass wall facing the North Loup River, bison, elk, deer, antelope heads hanging over the fireplace, it has everything one would associate with a hunting lodge. Plus there was a hand-built bar with hand-crafted stools, restaurant seating in a dining area, and a mezzanine with couches, easy chairs, and a television overlooking the lobby. My wife and I spent a long time just marveling at all the objects, photographs, and furniture collected into this place. The room we reserved, the Turner Room, was full of the history of the Turner family, immigrants to Brewster from a hundred or more years ago. The furniture was antique, the bed quite comfortable, and the bathroom clean and in working order. I must say the the device for turning the shower on in the tub was one of the strangest I have ever seen, but the instructions for operating were quite clear. Brewster is a far piece from any establishment that serves food, so Marilyn prepares meals in her professional kitchen. We were served along with members of her family and the road crew that was working on the highway nearby. Meatloaf, corn on the cob, salad, fresh-baked bread, and blueberry pie were on the menu. A lot of places like to brag about their "home-cooked" meals, but this truly was cooked in a home. And, of course, there was a breakfast of eggs, browns, and pancakes the next morning. There was a charge for the meals, but it was quite reasonable and the food much better than chain restaurant food. My wife and I have stayed in a gypsy wagon in Minnesota through Airbnb. That was remarkable, but this is right up there with it. Take the time to see the places where Nebraska is beautiful. And be sure to spend at least one night at Uncle Buck's Lodge. You will be gratified.
