Visitors to Red Cloud are invited stay at the Cather Second Home which once provided Willa Cather with a nurturing and encouraging atmosphere in which to work when visiting family and friends throughout her career. The host-free guest house — now owned and operated by the Willa Cather Foundation — has 6 cozy guest rooms, 2.5 baths, full kitchen, dining room, gathering areas, and a wrap-around porch. Located within walking distance of the National Willa Cather Center and Red Cloud Opera House, guests have easy access to a variety of locally-owned downtown restaurants and shops, a wine bar, grocery store, and Auld Public Library.
Guests may rent the room that was Cather's, or bedrooms of her parents or siblings. The entire home may also be rented for small family gatherings and special occasions and is an ideal place for book clubs, small corporate meetings, or your own space to write and rest.
We require a 48-hour advance notice for bookings.
