Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a retired child psychotherapist. Graduated with an MSW from University of Iowa while the earth was cooling! I lived and practiced n Chicago for 40 years. Co-owner Linda Boyle is a singer-songwriter and retired Special Education teacher. With encouragement and time permitting, she will provide you with an evening sing-along around the fire pit.

Why the Owner Chose Nemo, SD, USA:
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 could not 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 antique-ing are wonderful. Come on by!
