Nemo cabin description

Shady Grove Cottage is a cabin located in the Black Hills near Nemo, SD, and about 25 miles from Rapid City.) There are two units in the cabin, with one reserved for occasional visits by owners. The rental unit is called Red Tail Hawk and consists of 1300 sq. feet. It has a lodge-like feel, with a vaulted ceiling, a 22-ft. deck, unique decorations, brand new hickory wood cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. It sits on five private acres, with a stream at the end of the driveway, a lake just down the road, tall pines and aspen, and a million night-time stars. A 6,000 ft. peak nearby provides amazing sunset viewing.
All amenities are provided, including a living room/great room area, fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer, towels and bed linens, satellite TV, and internet access. The unit comfortably sleeps 7 on a king bed, double bed, two single beds, and queen sleeper.
Shady Grove is centrally located among all Black Hills attractions, including Mt. Rushmore, historic Deadwood (Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok were real people!), Custer State Park (wildlife, lakes, rock climbing, and mountain climbing), the town of Sturgis, home of one of the nation's largest motorcycle rallies, and Rapid City.
There is a three-night minimum for rentals. Upon leaving, guests may choose to clean the unit, or elect to leave cleaning to us. If so, a surcharge of $125 will apply. There is a $500 FULLY REFUNDABLE damage/security deposit. Please inquire about Rally Week rates, and discounted rates for educators and returning guests. Occasionally, the lower unit or loft may be rented as well for larger parties. Loft is a cozy, charming space for two, with a full bath, kitchenette, queen bed, and large deck. Inquire.
In summer, the owners may be in residence nearby, so you may be invited to a bar-b-que or sing-along, as one of the owners is an acoustic musician who performs in the Rapid City area. They will also give you the low-down on the back trails, secret beautiful spots, restaurants, and other information that local folks know. By pre-arrangement with owner, a lavish gourmet meal may be provided. Email for details. Friendly dogs welcome--no pit bulls please.

                        My family made a quick Labor Day weekend trip to the Black Hills from Nebraska. The owner (Carol) supplied us with a wonderfully detailed 3 day itinerary of the Black Hill including must sees, restaurants, shops etc. The cabin was immaculate, included all the amenities you would ever need, and decorated with beautiful local artisan artwork. Even though it was supposed to be a weekend of getting back to nature, my teenage boys loved the fact they had wi-fi access and my husband could watch the U.S. Tennis Open on Dish satellite TV. The cabin was tucked away in a private location, but it was centrally located to all the Black Hills attractions. We can't wait to get back for a longer visit.

                        Recommended for: Sightseeing, pet owners, families with teenagers.

                        This cabin is in a nice setting in the northern hills with easy access to highway 385 to get to many locations in the Black Hills. It is a modern cabin with nice bedrooms and decks, good kitchen for cooking and a very peaceful setting. Our family enjoyed our stay very much.

                        Five of us rented the cabin for our visit during the Sturgis motorcycle rally. We stayed for the week and the place was wonderful. It is secluded enough to give you quiet an privacy, yet it is centrally located to the attractions of the area. This was a perfect place for us to come back to after a day of riding through the Black Hills or attending the events in Sturgis. The cabin is well stocked with everything that we needed for the week. Carol and Lynn were wonderful hosts and wanted to make sure that we had everything we needed during our stay. The cabin is beautifuly decorated and modern, nothing was missed. I hope this cabin is available on my next visit to the area.

                        If you are looking for a great place to stay with your family while visiting South Dakota - then you must stay here!! Perfectly located, peaceful setting, amazing owner! We went sight seeing everyday and came "home" to a relaxing cabin with everything we needed. We were also lucky enough to have a bonfire and sing-along one night! Really. Look no further, this is where you should stay!

                        Oh my gosh! This cabin surrounded by truly incredible mountains was such a treat for our family! It is centrally located for all of the 'must see' sight seeing adventures and it was always so wonderful to return this spectacular home at the end of a long day. The cabin was immaculately clean and spotless. Having a washer/dryer and full kitchen made our traveling much easier. We had a wonderful time exploring in the woods and seeing wild life. The owners of this marvelous place are beyond wonderful and made sure all of our needs were met. We can't wait to come back next summer!!

                        This cabin was amazing! It was off the main highway so its nice and quiet. It's very modern and well kept on the inside and located in such beautiful scenery. I only wish we had more time to spend in this gorgeous area. Carol was extremely helpful and patient with all of my questions. She was wonderfully quick at responding to emails and a pleasure to deal with. I'll definitely be back to the Black Hills area and I'd love to stay here again. I highly recommend it to everyone!

                        We very much enjoyed our stay at Shady Grove! Beautiful flowering hanging basket greeted us on arrival. A lovely home, kept in top-notch condition, clean, comfortable with all the modern conveniences and a beautiful setting and view! Mornings were spent with coffee overlooking the woods on the back deck, and peaceful evenings spent on the front deck watching for the sunset. Our 2 big dogs loved running and running all over the property—they were exhausted! More than enough room for 2 adults and a teenager! Great location to get to anywhere in the Black Hills --- we drove to Deadwood to the Spearfish Canyon Scenic drive (and hiked to Spearfish Falls-- WOW) and attended evening lightening of Mount Rushmore - gorgeous! Spent an entire day in Custer State Park--- love the Needles highway, and hiked around the beautiful Sylvan Lake—found and climbed the exact rock and spot where part of National Treasure 2 was filmed! Future years will find us spending multiple days visiting and hiking in Custer State Park! We definitely would come back and stay in future years, it was a very enjoyable relaxing cabin for exploring the Black Hills for the first time!

                        We have used VRBO rentals many times in the past, and this cabin ranks among the top we've stayed in. After cramming seven people (four adults, two kids, and a toddler) and all of our stuff into a single SUV for a fourteen hour drive, we needed a rest...and we found this place to be the perfect spot to come home to. It was clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated, and well-stocked with necessities. We had plenty of space, both inside and out. The owners of the property were onsite (downstairs), which was great. They were the most hospitable, helpful, and thoughtful hosts one could ask for--they were available to answer questions, chit chat, and provide advice but still gave us privacy. We all loved the homemade zucchini bread and enjoyed a sing-along complete with musical instruments for the kids...a fun experience I know they'll never forget. We stayed for one full week, and saw much of what the Black Hills has to offer. Of course, Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park are must-see destinations...but we probably had the best times at some of the more "off the beaten track" locales. The Spearfish Canyon Scenic Drive is AMAZING--I would highly recommend hiking to Roughlock Falls as a spot for a picnic lunch. Also, The Mammoth Site in Hot Springs is a great place for kids; ours really enjoyed the junior paleontologist program. This was a great place to stay--we hope to be back!

                        This cabin and its owners are amazing. My family and I spent four days here and on day one were planing our next trip out to stay here. Pictures do not do the place justice, it is so warm and inviting. Loved staying here. The owners are gracious and welcoming, couldn't have picked a better place. Reccomend anyone to stay here. Thanks again for a wonderful time! Samantha Begines and Family

                        Our family of 5 spent an absolutely wonderful week at Carol and Lin's property. They were wonderful hosts and provided a home away from home. The property is exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. Our sons felt the best part of the vacation was to spend time at the cabin, conversing with the hosts and exploring the attached properties - particularly the trout stream. Nature is at the doorstep and provides the true Black Hills experience. We would highly recommend this property!!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: I am a child psychotherapist in the public schools in Chicago in the winter, and a Black Hills resident in the summer.

                      Why the Owner Chose Nemo:
                      I grew up in the Black Hills and left there, restless to see the world, when I graduated high school--couldn't wait to leave. Now that a few decades have passed, I cannot wait to retire and get back for good.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      I have a very busy time of it when I can get out there. It takes a lot of energy to walk the woods and peaks with my dog, look out back to see if the bachelor elk is coming by, pick up fossils, watch the sunset from Custer Peak, lie on my back in an innertube, and meditate on the front lawn. When friends visit, we go to Deadwood, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and ride the 1880 train. The Warrior's Work gallery in Hill city is amazing, and Prairie Edge store and museum in Rapid in remarkable. Custer State Park is un-missable, and the rock shops and antiquing are wonderful. Come on by!
