Spearfish bungalow description

Open Mid May - Mid October. This unusual property is located on 12 acres just outside of Spearfish, and is open from May until October. Peaceful and secluded 'The Yurt' is a great place to stay while you're touring the Black Hills. It's close to town, yet not part of the hustle and bustle.

The kids will love sleeping under the stars on our large deck, or if inclement weather hits, you can quickly move inside to our fully furnished accommodations including a kitchen, bathroom, living room, and sleeping loft. There is no air conditioning. The windows are screened allowing for cross ventilation and a ceiling fan moves the air. For sleeping, we have a hide-a-bed couch, 2 futons, and a sleeping area above the bathroom which will sleep 2 kids. Additional floor space and the outside deck is available for sleeping bags. Please strip your bedding and towels on departure.

A fire pit is onsite, great for roasting marshmallows, smores, or campfire moments under the stars. Firewood is available for a small donation. A gas grill is located on the deck.

You can pick up cell service about 50' inside the gate, or drive back down the road about 1/2 mile. There is no television and no internet. There are various coffee shops in town for wireless internet.

We are located up a canyon about 4 miles west of Spearfish off a quiet country road that services the neighboring Forest Service. It is a great place to hike, bike, walk, jog, or just relax and enjoy nature. 2 miles up the road is the trailhead to climb Crow Peak, a 3.5 mile hike. Big Hill, a popular destination for biking with numerous trails is 5 miles away. 12 miles up the road is Iron Creek Lake where you can rent paddle boats and the kids can swim.

Spearfish is at the northern end of the Black Hills between Mount Rushmore and Devils Tower. Driving times to various sites: Mount Rushmore/Crazy Horse - 1.5 hours, Spearfish Canyon - 15 minutes, Deadwood - 22 minutes, Belle Fourche - 22 minutes, Devils Tower - 1 hour, Custer - 2 hours

Directions: From I90 get off at Exit 8 and go south to the 2nd stop sign (1.5 miles?). Turn right onto Hillsview and go 1 mile to Higgins Gulch Road. Turn left 2 miles to the yurt. Please note: It will seem longer then 2 miles because of your reduced speed. Look for the wooden fence on the right. The yurt is visible from the road. Drive time from freeway to yurt: 7 minutes.

From Spearfish go west on Hillsview Road (Burger King at corner) 2.5 miles to Higgins Gulch. There's a Safeway store 2 blocks south from Burger King, and a water park and post office 2 blocks north of Burger King.

Large groups are welcome with tent camping available. Please call for more information and for our special Sturgis Rally rates.

                  About the owner: I have a real estate and development company (Homes In The Hills). I'm currently working on a housing development in Bottineau, ND building homes, town homes, and hopefully soon, monolithic dome multi family housing.
