                    Three couples stayed in the cabin for four nights. Pros: Very comfortable cabin. Description was accurate regarding location and rooms, baths etc. Property was clean and well-maintained. Enjoyed babbling brook, wildlife in yard, sitting around campfire in the evenings and coffee on the porch in the am. No AC but cabin stayed cool due to very cool nights. Lots of fans for use. Con: We were on motorcycles and road to cabin is around a mile of gravel. Driveway to cabin is chat. Luckily it did not rain enough to make gravel road messy. Would recommend to others.

                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, girls getaway, adventure seekers.

                    Manager response: Your comments tell about the place better than we can - sunny days, cool nights, the sound of the creek, bonfires, wildlife - things you can't find along a highway. Thanks for putting up with a mile of gravel road and thank you for staying with us. Hope you come back again.

                    Very private, quiet retreat with a fully stocked kitchen. Kids loved the open second story area and the toys. The creek and the open meadow were a bonus for city kids. Grandma loved the views and the solitude. Very welcoming and comfortable. Would come back anytime.

                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, families with young children, adventure seekers.

                    Manager response: Outdoor adventures for city kids; quiet and peaceful for Grandma. Sounds like the perfect vacation. Glad you enjoyed Creekside at The Pines. Thank you.

                    This is a beautiful part of the country and a lovely house. We felt very comfortable and welcome and the kids loved the open space and areas to explore. I hated to leave and highly recommend this house.

                    This cabin is just perfect for many reasons, but I have to start off with it was so clean! It was the cleanest place I have ever stayed. Cleaner then a hotel room. The owners really love this place and it shows. The setting is so peaceful and grounds are well kept. The cabin has been beautifully restored and the attention to detail was so refreshing. For example the kitchen is well stocked with every thing you need to cook. There are all the supplies you would need like soaps, towels, games, toys, books, and movies! This cabin is centrally located enough that we were able to visit many of the sights in the black hills and the bad lands. We just felt we were staying with friends the whole time because it feels like a home and not a rental. We hope to go back again in the future. I will be telling all my friends to rent this cabin!

                    Manager response: We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed our cabin in the Black Hills as your "home" for your vacation. You're right - it is a home and we are glad to share it with people like you when we can't be there. Thank you for your comments!

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  Why Nemo:
                  Creekside at The Pines is a beautiful setting rich in history. Part of the 280-acre Pines of Benchmark development, this property has roots dating back to the gold mining days and a tie-in to the former Lucky Strike mine which was nearby. On the property are multiple log structures, each of which was handcrafted onsite with logs harvested from the surrounding hills. The main cabin was built in the early 1970’s and the “bunkhouse” in the late 1950’s by the previous owner. According to county records, the barn was built around 1918. However, the county is unable to give an absolute date as the information they have was obtained from an owner in the 1940’s or early 1950’s. The barn roof was originally wood shakes and was replaced with the corrugated steel around 1960. The little old house (shack) that sits in the middle of the property was called the “black shack” because it was simply covered with tar paper. According to the daughter of the previous owner, the black shack originally sat across the creek somewhere to the west of the big pine tree. It is believed that someone having connections with Lucky Strike Mine once lived in the building. The current owners purchased the property in late 2001 after it had been vacant for several years. Since then they have been on a restoration mission and have turned Creekside at The Pines into their family cabin retreat. After installing a new well, septic system, bathrooms, and laundry facilities, the owners felt it was ready to share with others. Tourism rentals began in mid-2010. We hope you find the setting and character of this family retreat one that calls you back year after year.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  More history . . . There was a small wood frame house where the main cabin sits today. The previous owners moved there in the mid-1950s and lived in this house while building the bunkhouse (approximately 1958.) We do not know why the bunkhouse is constructed of logs on the front half, and of 2x4 framing on the back half. The bunkhouse originally had a bedroom with a shower in the back of the garage, and a kitchen in the main living area of the log side of the structure. The original windows, doors, plumbing, and other construction materials were salvaged from buildings in the Nemo, Lead, and Deadwood area. When completed, the bunkhouse became the primary residence for the previous owners and they razed the old house. They built the main cabin on that site sometime in the early 1970’s. Like with the bunkhouse, many of the materials were salvaged from former buildings in the surrounding area. We know that the ceiling boards in the two bedrooms and garage came from an the old boarding house built for the Lucky Strike miners, originally located about a quarter mile down Benchmark Road to the west. A root cellar was built in the side of a hill which is now inside the garage of the main cabin. The date inscribed in the concrete says 1958. From all appearances it may have been built to also function as a fall-out shelter. The property had been uninhabited for several years when purchased 2001. The windows were falling apart and the chinking between the logs was crumbling. In order to save the buildings from further deterioration, the main cabin and the bunkhouse were re-chinked and new windows installed. Insulated steel roofs were added on top of the existing roofs, and the bunkhouse roof was extended to cover the stamped-concrete porch added on the front. The loft/attic was finished in 2008 and the staircase added. There were no windows in the attic prior to the remodel. The deck was added off the back in 2011 and kitchen remodeled November 2013.
