The Cornerstone Mansion

Located at 140 North 39th Street, the Cornerstone Mansion is the only historic inn in Omaha. Years ago, this fabulous home was known as the Offutt House. With over 10,000 square feet of living space, the original owners spared no expense when building the Cornerstone Mansion in 1894.

Offering seven guest rooms, the mansion is now run by Innkeepers and has served as a Bed and Breakfast since the 1980s. Guests enjoy large rooms, a 125 year old Weber Box Grand Piano, a large sun porch, a parlor, and a formal dining room. Guests can enjoy gourmet meals, take a walk through the gardens, or wander through the public areas and enjoy the extensive use of intricate mahogany woodwork, onyx, and mosaic tiling.

The Joslyn Castle

Built by Nebraska's wealthiest couple in 1903, the Joslyn Castle is a 35-room, Scottish Baronial mansion on Omaha's outskirts at 3902 Davenport Street. Available for tours, public events, and private rentals, the Joslyn Castle is a lavish home both inside and outside. Starting with an incredible wrought iron door, the Joslyn Castle also features an impressive curved staircase, a marble fireplace, stained glass windows, and satinwood throughout the home.

Within the Joslyn Castle, the library, drawing room, dining room, music room, and ballroom were common entertaining areas. Both the castle and the carriage house are made from silverdale limestone. The Joslyn Castle is a popular place to rent for parties, celebrations, weddings and corporate events.
