Merritt Reservoir Certified as International Dark Sky

Have you ever made a late night drive ahead of your stay with us, pulling into our roundabout after the sun bids farewell?

If so, you know how serene and peaceful nighttime is on the prairie. The stars and moon light the path.  It’s pitch black, but the sky shimmers.

This part of the world sure can be amazing.

It’s the first to be recognized in the state of Nebraska.

It’s a pretty cool thing and a pretty big deal.
