This custom designed glamping lodge was a dream of mine for a long time. I wanted a place to go to unwind and be with one with nature. But! wanted it close to town so I do not have to travel far and still be close to the city attractions. The lodge backs up to a large hill--called the Loess Hills. Many deer, raccoon, possum and turkey call it home and so does a few pets of mine to include a mini horse and goat. They just love being adorned by new people. I think you will find this a perfect place for a good nights sleep. Learn more about this land: --Enjoy the deer setting amongst the tree's and nature. Hiking trails close by. Come enjoy a relaxing experience close to the city, the zoo and other attractions.  MOST dogs are welcomed -- BUT need to be approved first! before booking. ADDITIONAL FEE REQUIRED>  Walking trails close by!  and restaurants. Verify with host before booking please. The bathroom/shower is located across the yard in the lower level of the main house.  Thank you!

Cozy cabin
We loved this place! Perfect for a 1 night getaway for my husband and I! It was so cozy and loved having a fire, and yet a 5 min drive away from getting food!

Magical and cozy!
We loved our stay at Arrowhead! The property is magical with lots of interesting objects and decor, and the lodge is super cozy. We loved getting to say hi to the goats and waking up to the view of the pretty wooded area behind the lodge. 10/10 would stay again and recommend!

As long as you’re aware that this Hipcamp is located in the backyard of a suburban neighborhood, I’d recommend staying here. The cabin was quirky and clean. And the windows face toward the woods so it feels private. For me, this was the perfect spot (driving from Colorado to Minnesota and needed a place along the way to stay for a night to recharge).

Wonderful lodge!
This is a beautiful great place to stay just minutes away from Omaha! We found this place when we planned a quick trip to Western Iowa and it did not disappoint. Rob is a wonderful host and the site is incredible. Loved every minute of it!

Lush Backyard Respite
Rob is an excellent host! The cabin is very cozy (and cool with A/C). It was the perfect spot for me and my dog as we drove through on our way to Milwaukee. Highly recommend staying here. I would stay again!

Amazing spot for a stop!! 10/10!!
I loved this spot so much! 10/10 would stay again. Gorgeous, quiet, my pup and I loved it. So many birds! Really a special treat on our cross country road trip. Honestly, we’ll probably stay here again on our way back. Close enough to the city if you want to go in town to grab a bite and far enough to have a truly camp like experience.

Unique styling in a great setting
We were in town for the CWS, and this spot exceeded our expectations. Comfortable, private, clean, and cool (yes, there is AC). The two goats were a bonus. The host was helpful, friendly, and respectful—a great location with easy access to the surrounding area. We would love to stay here again next time we are close to Omaha.

Great and affordable spot for exploring Omaha and Council Bluffs. Rob was a great and helpful host and we had everything we needed for the stay. The space had coffee, a comfortable bed, and even air conditioning. If you're into trail running / mountain biking, check out the nearby Louis and Clark Monument Trail. Very hilly but very fun course. We would easily stay again if passing through.

Perfect Road-trip pit stop
We absolutely loved staying at arrowhead camp, it was a perfect and comfortable halfway point for our trip! Rob made our camp nice and warm for our arrival and was more than accommodating for our small family! The lodge was very peaceful and quiet, we will definitely be returning in the future!

Cozy Cabin + Backyard Bonfire
Rob's cabin and location were so much fun! The vibe was eclectic and unique, the cabin was cozy and warm, and the bonfire was perfection. Additionally, Rob was an incredibly helpful and kind host :) I would definitely recommend his place to anyone looking for a midwest glamping experience!

Super fun and creative little cabin on Rob’s residential property. Very eclectic taste - whimsical. It was great for me for one night passing thru.

Such a cute overnight getaway spot
My boyfriend and I booked a last-minute overnight date night here. It's just as beautiful as the pictures if not more in person. The decorations and upkeep are so lovely and relaxing. Has all the stuff to cook a campsite meal and then head inside the cabin for games or whatever else you would like. Great for the price and space utilization! Would absolulty reccomend to anyone.

Cute, relaxing, charming.
Rob's place was great. Well-appointed, rustic and cute. He had AC running on our arrival which was very welcomed! We loved saying hi to the goats and his puppy in the morning.

Very cute and cozy location! Rob was a friendly and accommodating host. Although the location is in a backyard, the site was thoughtfully private (around the corner from the goats - we had so much fun watching them!) with the entrance facing a heavily wooded area. It really felt like we had our own private space. There was a fire pit and BBQ set-up available. The bathroom is a short trek up to the main house and accessible throughout the day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wished it had been for a leisurely trip instead of a rushed stop.

What a great hidden gem! We had a wonderful "staycation" here. A fun spot with lots of wildlife. Rob was a wonderful host, and the goats are so sweet!

Rob's lodge is GORGEOUS! the grass was a little soppy because storms had just rolled through, but Rob laid out planks to help us traverse the wettest parts of it. The space is more of a retreat than a mere landing place--we only stayed one night on a road trip, but I would happily stay longer. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place with us!

Beautiful cottage with moody vintage decor. Super comfortable bed, very clean and functional space. Bathroom is in the main house, LOVED the “rain” shower head!! Rob was great and accommodating. I booked 2 hours before arrival and he had the place ready for us! Definitely will stay again if ever back in the area.

This was my first Hipcamp stay and I was very pleased. The location was perfect for someone like me looking for a quick stopover during a long drive, and would also be perfect for someone visiting Council Bluffs. The Arrowhead Lodge is located in "suburbacountry" - a short drive from the highway, nice area for walking, houses nearby but also a farm with horses a few doors down. It's a short drive to restaurants/stores. The lodge itself was clean, well appointed, cute. It's a single room with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and windows facing the woods. There is a porch, outdoor seating, and a small fire pit. It's a short walk to the host's house to reach the bathroom. I loved that there is a walk-in shower, because I recently injured my knee, There was plenty of hot water. The host has a mini horse and a pygmy goat. The next-door-neighboor has several feral cats (beyond the host's control). So if your dog goes crazy when he/she sees those animals, this would not be a good place. My dogs are chill about those animals so it was not a problem - in fact very dog friendly for calm dogs since there are lots of places to walk one's dog. If you don't have a dog you could leave with one - the humane society is within a half mile walk, and when I passed there while walking my dogs there seemed to be plenty of available dogs. But don't worry, it's far enough away that you can't hear any barking dogs. There were a few mosquitoes (it is near Mosquito Creek after all) so bring bug repellant if you plan to sit outside. Although there is some outdoor lighting, a flashlight will be handy for nighttime trips to the bathroom. I heard crickets, raccoons, and an owl during the night. Since I love those sort of night noises, I thought that was a bonus. I would highly recommend this host and the Arrowhead Lodge. (The name makes me chuckle because there is a county park near my home has an "Arrowhead Lodge" large enough to host wedding receptions.)
