A Little Slice Of Heaven…..
Lord Ranch Resort in Valentine, Nebraska
Located in the middle of one of Nebraska's best outdoor recreation and wildlife areas, the Lord Ranch is perfect for the nature lover, star gazer, bird watcher, hunter or fisherman. It’s also the ideal retreat destination for anyone who seeks peace, quiet and memorable scenery.
Feeling stress from life in the fast lane? Immerse yourself in the utter serenity of the Sandhill mystique here on the Lord Ranch. The melodic trilling of bird songs heralds the predawn, as a rouge tinge brightens hills to the south. Nothing obstructs the amazing views as sunrise meticulously paints the eastern horizon. Indescribably beautiful, dramatic sunsets can also be enjoyed without restriction, and are accompanied by the coyote's song. Coyotes are also known as ‘prairie wolves,’ and their unique yips, barks and howls have been the prairie’s evening serenade for countless centuries.
Through broad cabin windows looking out across a lush meadow, one soon realizes the area teems with life from tiny lizards and turtles to the majestic deer, and even an occasional wary coyote. Feathered residents range from tiny song birds to grouse, pheasant and Canada geese to the allusive Blue Heron. Bird watchers are amazed at the abundance and diversity of wildfowl.
Experience an environment that once was most of Nebraska, and is now the vanishing prairie. A multitude of native grasses is zealously managed by dedicated ranchers and serves as the quilt that holds the underlying sand in its place. Tying that quilt is an endless display of wildflowers that march through the season. Small wonder that residents call this "God's Country."
