Rapid City house description

SORRY, IT IS BOOKED FOR 2014! This rustic, yet very comfortable log home is placed in a peaceful setting bordering acres of forest service property. There is plenty to keep you occupied with the turkey and deer trails which lend themselves well to hiking, mountain biking, and wildflower viewing. The owner is available and would happily provide guided tours. For the on-site activities, there are several: horseshoes, bean bag toss, tire swing, unwinding in the hot tub, relaxing in the hammocks, campfire, or light the fire and steam-it-up in the log sauna.

Conveniently located off of beautiful Nemo Road, which carves a curvy, hilly, scenic path through the Hills. Nemo Road then connects with equally beautiful Van Knocker Canyon Road leading to Sturgis. Although it is located on an ideal piece of paradise, and the memories to be made here are unforgettable. There is a half mile of well-maintained, gravel road leading to the house.

Come spend your vacation here at a gorgeous log home. Have all the satisfaction of camping outdoors, with all the comforts of a Holiday Inn!

I've watched three different species of birds going through their mating rituals simultaneously from the hot tub. It is also a great place to watch the sunset with a cool one, or for star-gazing. They say the tub hold 7, but that is only if everyone is ok with some leg-tangling....moreless

Light the fire in the wood stove, pour aromatherapy oil into the steamer, and spray water on hot things to make it nice and steamy. Cool off in the nearby hammocks. ...moreless

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: I am a retired empty nester and my nest is really cool. My three daughters started this whole 'vacation-rental' thing as a way to earn money for college, so the money is going to good use! I'm adding on to the house and doing the work myself. I'm so pleased with how the sunken hot tub, deck and patio combine for such a relaxing outdoor setting for socializing. I love to hike, trail-run, mt. bike, snowshoe, and cross-country ski on the trails on the Forest Service property adjacent to my yard. The wildflowers are beautiful.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      If you like nature and natural beauty, this is a great place to stay. The deer, turkeys, birds, coyotes and sometimes elk share the yard. The log sauna is a relaxing and memorable experience. The hammocks, bench swing, and tire swing, will be a great place to relax. Relaxing is what this place is perfect for. I don't have TV and if you enjoy nature, you'll see why. I have a kegerator with a beer on tap available, upon request.
