In Nebraska City, Nebraska the Lied Lodge & Conference Center is the place for lovers of trees. It is where Arbor Day was started by J. Sterling Morton and his dream of planting trees continues. Tree planting is just one way Lied Lodge encourages environmental stewardship. Everything about Lied Lodge from the tall Douglas fir timbers of the lobby to the their unique bio-mass system that uses wood chips made from pallets to heat and cool the hotel to serving Fair Trade coffee is about preserving the environment.
Guests can choose a room with a view to the arboretum or hazelnut orchard with all the amenities one expects from a high-end hotel. During the day visit Arbor Lodge State Park, the home of J. Sterling Morton. Make time to take the trail to past the hazelnut trees through the wooded area to the historic barn, orchards and nursery. Enjoy lunch and their awesome apple pie made from the apple fresh from their orchard. And visit the Arbor Day Farm Tree Adventure to learn how “trees make a world of difference."
End the day with a dip in Lied Lodge pool and a massage at their spa then enjoy a relaxing delectable dinner in their Timber Dining Room where sustainable food is served under soaring butternut timbers. Be inspired – join the Arbor Day foundation and be part of the solution.
