Due to the COVID-19 crisis,

we are temporarily closed until  further notice


Welcome to Burgess House.  We hope our quiet and peaceful environment will offer you a place to rest, restore and renew.  We opened Burgess House with the primary purpose of serving pastors, missionaries and others in Christian ministry as a place to unwind and recharge.  We recognize the stresses of ministry and the burnout to which it can too often lead.  We want Burgess House to serve as a place of rejuvenation that will energize your ministry.

(See our Retreat and Meetings  page for information on discounts for those in ministry.)


While this is our primary purpose, we desire Burgess House to be a quiet place of refuge for anyone. So, whether you are joining us for a spiritual retreat, a romantic getaway, alternate business lodging or just to visit Lincoln, you will find us an ideal spot. Our peaceful country setting provides you the serenity of the country within 15 minutes of downtown Lincoln and all the activities it has to offer.

Come enjoy our 1912 Local Landmark home, relax on the porch, and explore the many attractions Lincoln and the surrounding area has to offer. 

Start your day    off right

Pampering you with a delicious hot breakfast, which we locally source when possible, is always a part of your stay at Burgess House. Our breakfasts include a rotating variety of main dishes, including individual egg casseroles, baked French toast and Terry’s amazing scones. Seasonal fresh fruit, coffee, tea and juices accompany your morning meal. We also make every effort to make adjustments for any special dietary needs you may have.
