  • Introduction



    This word describes your restful experience and also your view of a breathtaking Nebraska sunset when you stay at the Westview Bed and Breakfast. We invite you to come, relax and enjoy!

    Experience a relaxing getaway, great for a wedding night, anniversary, "friend/family" reunion, birthday, shower, business stay, or "just because".


    From 1879 to 1954, Westview was known as the Westview County Home which was part of the Lancaster County's poor farm.  Today it serves as a charming and restful Bed and Breakfast.

    Westview served as the county home for the poor.
    In 1915, the original wood structure was destroyed by fire. A year later the present 15,000 square-foot residence was "built to last" with fireproof foot-thick walls and 6-inch concrete floors, even in the attic.

    The new Westview County Home was finished in 1916. The northwest wing of this large prairie-style building has been thoroughly renovated and is now a distinguished, yet cozy B&B. Westview has received recognition as a landmark for its rich, historical significance.

    Today, Westview is the home of Colleen and Jim Burden who would love to offer you an opportunity to come and spend some time on your own private sittin' porch complete with a view of the heartland.

    Now offering multi-course gourmet breakfast seven days a week, which may include the following:

    • Freshly brewed coffee
    • Premium Herbal Teas
    • Specialty Quiche
    • Fruit Trifle or Parfait
    • Fruit Juices
    • Variety Specialty Egg Dishes
    • Freshly Baked Cinnamon rolls

    Quotes for extended stays as well as corporate rates are available upon request.

    Check in is after 4 p.m. and check out is before 11 a.m. but we're flexible... just let us know your needs.

  • Things To Do

    Once you've unwound, day or night, there's plenty to do.

    The Branched Oak and Pawnee State Recreation Areas are each about ten minutes away for those who might enjoy a picnic by the lake, fishing, boating, hiking, or biking.  

    Other nearby attractions include the Highlands Public Golf Course and Nine Mile Prairie.  We're only eight minutes from everything in downtown Lincoln,  including the Historic Haymarket, the University of Nebraska - Lincoln campus, and Memorial Stadium.

    Fantastic!  Nothing can compare to the quality and service at Westview.  The most relaxing weekend ever. First time at Westview and it won't be our last.  Accommodations were among the best we've had... even better than the Ritz Carlton in Kansas City.   (12/08)
