Experience the Old West:
A unique overnight package


The Old West was about forging new frontiers and living off the land. Many Nebraskans are still living off the land, such as wine-makers and grape-growers. This Old West experience begins at the Prairie Vine Vineyard & Winery in Mitchell. Relax in the tasting room while sipping the fine wines designed to represent western Nebraska and the prairies. Try the nine varieties and purchase your favorites to take home or give as gifts. While you’re there, be sure to tour the 2,100-foot winery. If you’re lucky, you might even meet wine-maker Allen Gall.

Your adventure continues 30 miles south near Bayard at the Oregon Trail Wagon Train, where you can be a pioneer for an evening. Climb aboard a prairie schooner, listen to Old West tales, and take a ride along the historic Oregon Trail near the base of Chimney Rock. After working up an appetite, sit down and have a hearty meal fit for any cowboy or cowgirl, including a 16 oz. ribeye steak marinated with special seasoning, a baked potato, relishes, creamed green beans, sourdough bread, and homemade ice cream. Then mosey over to the campfire and enjoy a rousing sing-along that won’t make the coyotes howl.

Once you are tuckered out, head for the barn—the Barn Anew Bed & Breakfast near Scottsbluff. This quaint B&B is a 100-year-old barn that has been renovated to house you in comfort. A stone’s throw away is Scotts Bluff National Monument, a resting place for pioneers before they began the challenging trail up the Rocky Mountains. Choose your room from any of the four–each with private bath. In the morning, savor a hot breakfast prepared by your host.

This Experience the Old West package includes:

•1-night stay for a couple at Barn Anew Bed & Breakfast
•Wine tasting and a bottle of wine valued at $20
•Covered wagon tour followed by dinner and sing-along at the Oregon Trail Wagon Train

Cost is $175 per couple. Contact Allan or Cher at 308-632-8647 to make your reservation.
