If you're ever looking for a way to explore the state, consider heading west to Nebraska's Pine Ridge Country. The High Plains Homestead near Crawford in western Nebraska could be the perfect destination. We recently hit the road to see what this unique Nebraska attraction has to offer.
Merlin Kesselring started the unique bed and breakfast in 1999, and it really began as a place for his collections of homesteader cabins and other equipment. Now the tourist attraction offers a cook shack where you can get great steaks, Indian tacos and burgers.
You can stay overnight in the guest bunkhouse cabins. It's the perfect place to look for fossils, or just stare at the stars in the clear night sky.
The slogan of the High Plains Homestead is "How the West was won...quietly."

And, we recently heard that the High Plains Homestead has been saved from the fire that burned less than 100 yards away.
