          5/5 Excellent

            Just what we needed!

            4 adults and 5 late teen swimmer used this as our base of operations when we attended 2016 Olympic swimming trials in Omaha. The accommodations were perfect for us. The swimmers used the boat on the pond (5 in the boat was a FULL LOAD), but they enjoyed paddling around the lake and discovering the frogs and other pond wildlife. The house had all the dishes, bowls, and etc for us to feed the crew (some steak knives would be good), but we did find enough knives to manage. The grill was small for the size of the house and fairly wobbly, but it worked fine. Our stay at Buck Run Lodge was a roaring success and We all endorse it wholeheartedly! Thank you~~
