MITCHELL, Neb.- If you're looking for a comfortable night's stay in Mitchell, consider a stop at the Quivey House Bed and Breakfast.
Shane and Amy Reinpold are the owners of the bed and breakfast. "It was built in 1914 by Maurice Quivey who owned the Bay State Ranch," Shane said. "He and his wife got a divorce, and she got the house, and she made it into apartments." Shane Reinpold said when he purchased it, it was still six apartments. He says he rented it out for a little while, but decided to return the house back to it's original 1914 grandeur as a B & B.
There are no motels or bed and breakfasts in Mitchell, Shane said, so he believes he and his wife are filling a need in town. "We have three rooms available. One of them is a family-type room with two bedrooms and a bathroom," Shane said. Breakfast comes in a variety of ways, but it often includes biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon, and even some egg casseroles. Shane says they host parties at the house, as they've had wedding parties and Christmas parties there.
The oak woodwork is probably what stands out the most in the home. It is everywhere, and Shane says he thinks it's one of the most beautiful homes in town. The Quivey House is easy to find in Mitchell. The home is right on the corner of both highways 26 and 29. Shane says if you go one direction you can get to Agate Fossil Beds National Monument. If you go west, you can run into Fort Laramie in Wyoming, and if you he southeast, you will find Scottsbluff National Monument. So the Quivey House is centered in a good location for tourism.
