My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding. It was convenient, as it was right across the street from the Joslyn Castle where we were married. It was brought up to us from the lady that manages the events for the Joslyn Castle, so I'm not sure if they are affiliated or not. The hotel itself is beautiful and alive with history. The Mansion was given to Charles Offut as a wedding gift. The house is lined old photos of the Offut family and the owners were well versed in it's rich history. I was able to book all rooms for out-of-town family members and received a discount to our room. There are two sets of adjoining rooms which are great if you are traveling with older children. The rooms were all reasonably priced. Breakfast is served in the morning at a grand table. Breakfast was homemade and satisfying for the season. I would recommend this inn to anyone! Looking forward to spending an anniversary here.

My son and I spent 4 nights while staying in Omaha for the CWS and Olympic swim trials. The hospitality was grand, room clean, and bed comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and the location extremely convenient to Creighton University, Boys Town, TD Ameritrade Park and many other downtown and midtown sites. The young owner is a bit of a practical joker - (harmless) and only added to the charm of this 100 + yr old mansion. We encountered no ghosts - only fabulous people whose companionship was enjoyed each morning. The character of the home more than made up for nuances of it's age - the water pressure in the shower was a bit low and finicky to adjust. Compared to hotel prices in Omaha during the CWS - it was the bargain of the century. I believe the new owners plan to give the home a bit of cosmetic TLC - which will undoubtedly raise the nightly rate.
My wife and I stayed here on the night of our wedding and it was a great experience. We had our wedding at the Joslyn Castle, which is right across the street. It's a very nice kept, little bed and Breakfast in the heart of Omaha. My wife and I stayed in the Charles Suite and it was a great experience. The Charles Suite is the best and most spacious room in the mansion and it was definitely worth the little extra money. The room is decorated in 19th century decor and looks great. Everything was nice and clean as well. The breakfast and the service were both top notch and everyone was just so friendly. My wife and I have been kicking around the idea of going back on one of our anniversaries and spending a day or two there. For a nice, cozy bed and breakfast, I highly recommend this place.
