Hospitality Management Degrees

We recently ranked the most unique bed and breakfasts across the nation and wanted to let you know that the Slattery Vintage Estates Bed and Breakfast ranked as the most unique bed and breakfast in Nebraska! 

Our Unique Bed and Breakfast in Nebraska

Slattery Vintage Estates in Nebraska

Spend the day touring a working vineyard and winery, sampling different vintages in the tasting room, enjoy a cheese plate and catch some live music in the courtyard at Slattery Vintage Estates in Nebraska. Don’t bother calling an Uber when you’re ready to call it quits- you can spend the night on the grounds in the estate’s unique outdoor bed and breakfast. Slattery bills itself as the “original glamping destination in the Midwest.” Each elevated tent is furnished with antiques in prairie-elegant fashion, and has a small porch strung with lights, for a charming effect in the evening. It’s hard to picture a better destination for couples, and the company website’s many photos of proposals made on the grounds attest to the romantic vibe. Each tent in the bed and breakfast has its own fire pit, and guests can purchase not only wine from the estate, but also foil dinners to cook over the fire or even s’mores. Pairing local wine with marshmallows by the campfire with your significant other? We’re willing to bet you won’t forget this unique glamping experience.


Rates: $60 to $90 per night

Location: Nehawka, Nebraska

Recipe of the week...


Cream Cheese-Stuffed Pumpkin Dinner Rolls


These adorable pumpkin dinner rolls are semi-sweet and filled with rich cream cheese.

Cream Cheese-Stuffed Pumpkin Dinner Rolls


  • 1 envelope active dry yeast

  • 1/2 cup whole milk, scalded and allowed to cool to 110 degrees

  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cut into 1/2-ounce blocks and chilled

  • 20 pecan halves, sliced into thirds vertically

  • 1/3 cup butter, melted


  1. In a small bowl, place yeast, 110-degree milk and granulated sugar. Allow the yeast to bloom for about 10 minutes until frothy.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add yeast, brown sugar, butter, salt, spices, eggs, pumpkin puree and flour. Mix with the paddle attachment until well combined. Switch to the dough hook and knead dough for about 8 to 10 minutes, until it is smooth and soft.

  3. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with linen and allow it to rest for about an hour, or until it has doubled in size.

  4. Divide the dough into 16 pieces. Fill each dough ball with a cube of cream cheese. Wrap each dough ball in kitchen twine, wrapping the twine around the dough ball to create a pumpkin shape. (Take care not to wrap the dough too tightly because it will become larger when it proofs and bakes.) Cover the pumpkin-shaped dough balls loosely and set them aside to proof for between 1 and 1 1/2 hours, or until the dough is puffy and has doubled in size. Create an indentation in the top of each pumpkin where the pecan stem will sit after the rolls have baked.

  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake the rolls for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven when baked through and golden brown; brush with melted butter. Allow rolls to cool for a few minutes, then remove the twine and place a pecan stem on top of each. Serve warm.


On the personal side.....

Never Forget!

On a crisp Tuesday morning, with the sun shining bright,
Who could know that we soon would behold such a sight?

All our ears heard the rumble, all our eyes in a stare,
At the vision of horror, so high up in the air.

Could this be just a mishap, just a tragic mistake?
One could actually feel, the very ground shake.

Clear the streets! Step aside! The police must get through.
And the fire trucks wailing fully loaded with crews.

Then to everyone’s utter amazement and shock,
Yet another explodes, just past 9 o’clock.

People fled, women cried, thousands ran for their lives.
How could any come through this, how could any survive?

And the “Bravest” and “Finest” charged to save those in need.
We would soon know their valor, as they honored their creeds.

Then when none of us felt it could get any worse
The first tower succumbed and came crashing to earth.

Thousands glued to the tube, disbelief in their hearts
As the second gave way, then it just fell apart!

Those poor souls and their loved ones and their rescuers, too!
To our utter dismay there came even worse news.

The events that transpired on that day, what a pity.
Were not to take place just within New York City.

Our great Pentagon’s structure was to suffer the hell
And the loss of so many who had served us so well.

And we soon all would learn of a Flight 93
All alone in the air where no cameras could see

They charged and they fought in a quest for control
Those brave souls gave their lives as they shouted, “Let’s Roll”.

Now the time since that day has flown by very fast
It’s now been years ago since that very first blast.

We’ve exacted some justice, more to come I am sure
And no matter the trials, we will surely endure.

As a land and a people we’re still strong and upright
But the battle’s not over and our troops must still fight.

Let us honor the fallen both at home and abroad
And their service and courage we still duly applaud.

And we think of the loved ones living on every day
With the hurt and the ache that just won’t go away.

So as we take pause, to remember and pray
Let us also take time to give thanks on this day.

May we always be brave, may our land be restored
Keep us safe in Your hands, we pray now, O Dear LORD.
