The Crossing Retreat Center is nestled in central Nebraska, a convenient destination for those located in central Nebraska and northern Kansas. The Crossing is an hour east of North Platte, a couple of hours west of Lincoln, and around three hours from the Omaha area. Groups love that they feel like they are truly ‘getting away’ during their event!
But don’t let The Crossing’s rural location fool you… the property is far from rustic. The Crossing underwent massive renovations in 2021 and 2022 and now has a premier meeting space and coveted lodging accommodations. Paired with the beautifully kept grounds this small market venue is truly a hidden treasure.
The Crossing offers year-round accommodations for up to 520 overnight guests. They offer all-inclusive packages that help keep planning simple and affordable for event planners. A package includes lodging, dining, meeting, and recreation – everything your group needs for a successful event!
