Arbor Manor Steakhouse & Motel
1617 Central Ave
Auburn, NE 68305
Dine in Victorian elegance in a restored Queen Anne-style home completed in 1910. A private home turned restaurant, The Arbor Manor Steakhouse has been serving travelers along Nebraska's Heritage Highway 136 with great food, excellent service and wonderful ambience for over 50 years. A catering and banquet room seating 120 is also available for parties and special events.
In addition to a full service restaurant and lounge, a 33-room motel has been added behind the house to accommodate overnight guests.
Construction on the Queen Anne Victorian style structure started in 1908 and was completed in 1910 when Thomas A. Bath and his wife, Adeline, moved into their family home.
After T.A. died in 1932, three other families lived in the dwelling; Maurice and May Ingersoll, 1935-1942; Otis and Anita Magor; 1942-1945; and Dr. John and Catherine Jack, a retired railroad physician, 1945-1961.
After Jack's death his wife sold the house to LeRoy (Ozzie) and Helga Osborne and her daughter Charlene Majors. This family made Arbor manor an steakhouse and lounge. In 1980, a fire destroyed the lounge and a portion of the house.
Bob and Charlene Majors sold the home to Kelly and Tina Conn who made major renovations to it. In 1984, the present Arbor manor was reopened and sold to Tom and Camille Stanley in 1988.
In 1991, a four-unit motel was built behind the house. Over the next five years, twenty-nine more rooms were added. In 2004, the steakhouse and motel were purchased by Rick and Amy Clark daughter of son-in-law of the Stanley's.
Rick, Amy and their daughter Whitney, cherish the character and history of Arbor Manor and hope it is appreciated by all our guests.The Clarks are glad to have you dine and stay with them!
