Description of the Lincoln vacation b&b rental
The origins of Westview Bed and Breakfast, now a historic landmark, date back to 1871 when Lancaster County first allocated funds to care for the poor. Though its beginnings were associated with the poor farm, today Westview brings to its guests an experience rich in history as well as quality in the detail of its renovations. Located 8 miles northwest of Lincoln just off Highway 34 on 10 acres, Westview has two suites and three rooms, each one distinctly unique. Just minutes from the University of Nebraska campus, dozens of museums, galleries, theaters and restaurants, Westview is the perfect getaway!

The Westview amenities that are standards found in each room include luxurious robes and slippers,  luxurious sheets and pillows, hair dryer, 32" flatscreen TV with DVD and CD player, weather radio, kitchen or kitchenette, and an array of snacks, candies, fruit juices and refreshments.

MorningStar shines on the North side of the west wing and offers views of the wooded area of the acreage. A stunning leaded glass window accents a corner of the bath which is completely encompassed in lime jade marble and includes a whirlpool tub for two under a rainshower. The bedroom features a gas log fireplace with surround and hearth in pale peach marble. The bed is King with a comforter that treats the eye to a designer quilt in Prussian blue and white. 

OakCreek meanders through the south east corner of the west wing. Featuring a Whirlpool tub for two this bathroom is encased in travertine marble blended with two tones of muted peach ceramic tile. The bedroom features an old-fashioned looking gas log stove with visable flames. The bed is Queen with a forest of brown, gold and green/ gold leaves.  

WildRose is "a view with a room", its dining nook offering an uninterrupted western sky.  The King bed is engulfed in a briar of rose stripes and ticking.  An Indian rug directs the eye around the bed to glimpse an old-fashioned gas log stove with visable flames. The bath is wrapped in travertine marble, encasing a corner whirlpool tub for two. The private kitchen is stocked with an array of snacks and refreshments and is complete with a washer and dryer. 

PrairieNook is simply tucked away in the northwest corner of the west wing with views of the woods and sunset.  A queen pieced quilt in pastel blues and golds is tossed across a deep pocket mattress piled high with pillows. On a cold night you can cozy up with a book next to the gas log stove with visable flames. The bath is wrapped in travertine marble, encasing a corner whirlpool tub for two. 

Sunset is the first floor suite and has views true to its name from its own private "sittin'" porch. Enter the living room with its original leaded glass window, then peruse your private kitchen stocked with an array of snacks and refreshments. Swing open the French doors to the Queen bedroom with whirlpool tub for two wrapped in travertine marble. Close by is the cozy fireplace.
