This cozy cabin is located in scenic northwest Nebraska just five miles south of the Whitney exit off Hwy 20 in the Pine Ridge area.  Your privacy is a guaranteed luxury, as the nearest neighbor is more than a quarter of a mile away.

Built by early settlers, this rustic little cabin on the prairie offers all the modern comforts of home. The open beam living room features a fireplace to keep you warm and cozy on those crisp evenings.  Above the living room is a sleeping loft featuring an antique metal bed for two and a folding cot for one. The living room couch will also fold out for extra sleeping needs.

The cabin’s extra large bedroom features a welcoming “Stars and Stripes” theme. A king size bed along with a twin-over-a-full-size bunk bed provides plenty of space for the whole family.  The large bathroom offers a modern shower to refresh you from your day of activities.

Our bed and breakfast service includes a choice of continental breakfast left at the cabin or pancakes served at the ranch house.  Other cooking needs are met in the handy, fully furnished kitchen, which includes an electric stove with oven, microwave, refrigerator, pots, pans, dishes, cooking utensils, toaster, coffee maker, and popcorn popper.  We furnish basic spices and other common essentials making this a "just bring your food and cook it" kitchen.  We welcome you to read what our guests so far have had to say about their stay.

You will find native trout fishing a few yards from the kitchen door, and nearby scenic trails offer numerous riding or hiking opportunities in and around the spectacular Pine Ridge rock bluffs. You may also enjoy quieter pursuits like watching or photographing the abundant wildlife that includes a resident big horn sheep herd. Or perhaps just sitting under a ponderosa pine tree listening to the wind whispering through the forest is more to your liking. That sound of peace and tranquility can regenerate your very soul. 

 

FOR THE HUNTER we offer white tail and mule deer, Merriam's turkey, grouse, pheasants, dove and a visitor favorite "western pot hole jump shooting".  Coyotes and other varmint hunts can be enjoyed by you and appreciated by us.  Priority hunts are reserved for the cabin renters.  Please see our Prices page for more information.

Myrna and Mark.jpg (112038 bytes) Your hosts, Mark and Myrna, live just up the road on the historic Betson 1888 homestead.  Our 4,500+ acres keep us busy with cattle ranching and farming, but we do take time to watch the amazing sunsets and some of the best star filled nighttime skies you will ever see. We enjoy sharing our piece of paradise at Aunt Myrna's Cabin on the banks of East Ash Creek and invite you to come see us soon!
