Quilt-a-Memory Package
Cambridge

There’s a reason the art of quilting has been rekindled in this country—because it gathers friends and families together not only to make a quilt, but also to make a memory. As part of this getaway, your group of three to five quilters will enjoy the charming atmosphere of the Cottage Inspirations Quilt Shop, located within steps of your accommodations. A special project will be customized for your group.

Keep the creative juices flowing while you relax and make yourselves at home at the Cambridge B&B—a spacious 100-year-old home listed on the National Register of Historic Places and recently named a Hidden Treasure by Heritage Nebraska. Share stories, recipes, and photos with others, and get caught up in the relaxed pace of small-town life. Take a refreshing dip in the public pool in nearby McKinley Park or set out on a quick 10-minute jaunt to our beautiful lake.

The Quilt-a-Memory Package is $149 (plus tax) per person (three-person minimum) and includes:
• One night of lodging (single occupancy) with breakfast at the Cambridge B&B
• A quilting class (with take-home project kit) at Cottage Inspirations Quilt Shop

Enjoy a Day at the Lake:
Water side relaxation without needing a passport

Start your day north of Lexington at Mac’s Creek Vineyards & Winery, a seven-year-old vineyard on the banks of Spring Creek. Truly a family business, the vineyard and winery is owned and operated by five members of the McFarland family.

Mac’s Creek is unique in that the grapes are grown and the wine is bottled at the same location. You’ll learn how the McFarlands transform their 12 acres of vineyards into award-winning wines. After the tour, sample several wines. Then savor a bottle of your favorite over a picnic basket for two.

When you are ready for some relaxation, head southwest to Johnson Lake. Spanning 4,000 acres, the lake is a state favorite for the abundance of walleye and other fish. Enjoy a wonderful dinner at Lakeshore Marina Restaurant and Lounge. Dine indoors, or add the relaxing sound of the water to your meal by eating outdoors.

A few blocks away, solitude awaits at the Waterfjord House. This newly remodeled B&B has a library, and a fireplace. Greet the morning with a cup of coffee on the beautiful patio overlooking the lake. Stay includes a home-cooked breakfast.

The Enjoy a Day at the Lake package is available year-round, Thursday–Sunday and includes:

•Tour, wine tasting, bottle of wine, and picnic basket including sausage, cheese, fresh bread, and chocolates at Mac’s Creek Vineyards & Winery
•$20 toward a meal at Lakeshore Marina Restaurant and Lounge
