If you are looking for the perfectly quiet, quaint and relaxing getaway, we highly recommend the Crystal Key Inn. We felt right at home, the Rose Room was perfect. Nicely decorated, clean, and great breakfast. We can't wait to go back! Thanks Diane & Earl!

The Inn is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy nature, peace and tranquility. Our room was beautiful with all the amenities one could ask for and then some. The breakfasts are all homemade, made from scratch and very well balanced. The front porch was my favorite place to sit and enjoy the occasional visit from T-Bone (the cat) Thank... More

After spending 4 nights at the Crystal Key Inn, we were nearly heartbroken to leave and return home. Earl and Diane run one of the best B&B's we've had the pleasure of staying with in the USA and Canada. The hosts are friendly, curious, and catering to your needs before you think of them.

My stay, amazing, restful, comfortable. I suggest YOU go, relax and unwind from the craziness of internet and modern living. Listen to the wind rustle through the corn. Enjoy the small-town life in Newman Grove and let the Zeller's pamper you!

A real treasure in northeast Nebraska. This beautiful home is beautifully decorated. Earl and Diane are gracious hosts. We had breakfast with 5 other guests in the morning and enjoyed the family feel and great company. The pancakes with fresh picked cherries and sausage were wonderful with the elegant table setting.

A beautiful home with an interesting story that the gracious inn keepers are happy to tell. Very comfortable and exceptionally clean. I... More
