Other Amenities

  • Miles and miles of deer trails to hike or ride your horse on 95 acres on the property, adjoined by another 1,000 acres of state property available for hiking and horse riding. Hunting is also available on the state owned land. Several firepits are available for outdoor campfires. Also, we DO NOT allow hunting or target practice on the property with guns. Our neighbor to the North was sitting on his deck one nice day last summer and a bullet hit his deck within 20 feet of where he was sitting. Because of the limited visibility of the woods, hills and grasses and because other people use other parts of the land for hiking, horse riding, picnicking and other (usually non-profit group) activities, we decided we just couldn't risk it again. Sorry. There are gun ranges in Sioux Falls and Brandon..........moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I'm a real estate broker in Sioux Falls. When we bought this property we had the intention to develop it with 5 or 6 homes with privacy and fantastic river views. We just have not been able to part with any of it and decided to just share it with everyone with this vacation rental home....

Why the Owner Chose Larchwood, IA, USA:
We found this beautiful piece of real estate about 15 years ago, were finally able to purchase it about 7 years ago and decided we really just wanted to share it with the world a little. It had been in the same family for 3 generations, ever since it was aquired from the government over 100 years ago. It has not had much human activity over the years, just quietly co-existing along a mile of the Big Sioux River. Whitetail deer, pheasants and turkeys enjoy the solitude there.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We've really enjoyed hiking the property over the years. Just pick a deer trail and follow it and discover the beauties of nature. You can hunt, hike or ride horse at either Hidden Bridge or Peterson Preserve which adjoins our property to the East and North.
