The space

The Crystal Key Inn is 120 years old but in many ways is only 20 years young !!

How is this possible ?

In 1997, the entire Crystal Key Inn was raised / lifted / & moved across Newman Grove.

Prior to settling @ its new home @ the edge of town, the Old Crystal Key Inn got an incredible upgrade / remodel like no other:

- New Electrical Wiring
-New Plumbing ( Fire Sprinkles Included )
-New Heating & Cooling
-New Windows
-New Completely Finished Basement
-New Added on Master Bed & Bath

This is one of the only B & B's in the entire United States has actually been moved & remodeled so extensively while preserving it's wonderful history but now giving it new bones & muscle for a glorious future!!

Travel back in time to experience The Amazing Newman Grove Historic Crystal Key Inn !!

What a great place! So pretty and spacious. There was plenty of room for our group of 10--space for the grown-ups to talk while the kids hung out in the basement, and also common spaces we all used together. The town of Newman Grove is quiet, with friendly locals. A great locale for a vacation away from the hustle and bustle. We would definitely book the Crystal Key Inn again!

The Crystal Key Inn was a lifesaver for our family. We needed lodging for a funeral in the area and there was no room at any local hotels. The house is spacious and great for large groups. We wish we could have enjoyed it more while we were there!

We had a big family group (14 of us covering 3 generations) who stayed at the Historic Crystal Key Inn on August 20th and 21st. We travelled to Nebraska for the eclipse (which was extraordinary!). We couldn't have been happier with the remarkable home we were invited into! The inn is clean and lovely, yet filled with period pieces that make the Victorian character of this beautiful building really come alive. We felt like we'd stepped into another era. When we arrived, Tom, who lives next door, greeted us and gave us an informative and thorough tour of each part of the Inn. He was welcoming and extremely helpful. We were able to cook and share our meals in the big kitchen and dining room. Newman Grove is a great small town; we enjoyed an evening walk. We wish we'd have had more time just to hang out at the house. It was so lovely just to be there, exploring its nooks and crannies, its many charming spots to sit and chat. Thanks for a memorable stay, Darren! We're already trying to find ways to come back again!

Sometimes life's greatest memories are made off the beaten path. It's really difficult to capture in words how incredible the Crystal Key Inn is. The attention to detail is amazing. You will be taken back in time to a golden era of American architecture and history. Darren has worked really hard to make this place an unbelievably enjoyable stay. It is absolutely worth the trip off the beaten path to Newman Grove. You won't regret it-- I promise.
