What Does Travel Look Like Ahead?

What Does Travel Look Like Ahead?

If you’re like us, you have many questions about the likelihood of your travel plans in the coming months. When will the social distancing guidelines be lifted? When can we continue to travel? When can we begin living normal lives again?

When?

It’s a question that no one has the definitive answer to right now.

But there is good news.

Even amidst the difficulties of isolation brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, there are still ways we can enjoy the simple normalities of life sans COVID-19.*

In light of these travel concerns, The Niobrara Lodge has taken careful measures to ensure the sterilization of our property and the safety of our guests. 

That is to say, we are ready and willing to accommodate your next journey to the Valentine area — whenever that may be!

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — to date — has not issued advisories or restrictions against travel within the U.S. All states have reported cases of COVID-19, but certain areas are experiencing quicker rates of spread than others. Be sure to check the state- and local-level public health department websites for further information. 

Considering this, rural residents can breathe a little more deeply. Part of the beauty of life in the Nebraska Sandhills is the wide-open spaces. 

Social distancing is made a bit easier here.

With so many outdoor activities to enjoy, travelers may experience safer, more isolated environments than their home settings. 

Lastly, we wish to remind guests of one principle: While it is our wish to inject as much normalcy and positivity into the current situation as possible, we maintain that the top priority be the health and safety of our neighbors

Illness is not a risk worth taking, and we encourage everyone to make the responsible decision for themselves and their communities. 

No one knows when travel will return to normal.

But should you wish to escape to the “Middle of Nowhere” in the meantime, we’ll be ready to lodge you — safely and soundly.

*(Disclaimer: The regulations surrounding the coronavirus pandemic are constantly fluctuating, and we firmly advise guests to review the guidelines from the CDC and local public health departments before making any travel-related decisions.)

Welcome to Valentine

When someone says the word “diversity,” what comes to mind? People, culture, you name it – there are numerous aspects of our lives where we are thinking about what makes something special. Here in Valentine, however, diversity takes on a new meaning. We are talking about outdoor adventures. We are talking about exploration. We are talking about the Middle of Nowhere. Valentine is home to countless outdoor excursions – hunting, fishing, golfing, camping, you name it. And how could we forget to mention the illustrious Niobrara River?

Our little slice of paradise provides you with the opportunity to escape, unwind and explore some breath taking outdoor activities. Affectionately known as the Heart City, we at The Niobrara Lodge would like to be the first to welcome you to a place that is close to adventure, yet miles from ordinary.

Come explore with us.
