For the most sublime place to stay in Nebraska head to the tiny town of Brownville between Omaha and Kansas City and the River Inn Resort. The town of 130 is an International Book Town with four bookstores and seven museums. After a day of exploring this wonderful town which is a step back into yesteryear spend a night or two on a stationary riverboat turned luxury B&B.
The rooms with ensuite bathrooms are sleek with pillow top mattresses, wireless internet, HD TV, phones, coffee makers, refrigerators, microwaves, individually controlled a/c and heating, and radios. The best part is the wraparound deck. In the evening relax on the deck as darkness descends and listen to the sounds of nature. Come morning watch the sun rise above the trees and the fog lift from the river. Breakfast is a culinary delight and the perfect way to start the day. The resort, a luxuriously restored river boat, is stationary but you can explore the Missouri River on the Spirit of Brownville which is docked next to the River Inn. It is an unforgettable river experience where you can catch sight of bald eagles and heron.
