About Jennifer

We love adventure and we love nothing more than sharing our home with others who love adventure too! We custom built this home in 2012 after a lengthy design process.

Jennifer purchased this house in 2012

Why Jennifer chose Black Hills

We built this property as our dream house after looking all over the Black Hills for the best possible location. We built this property to accommodate almost any type of gathering.

What makes this house unique

This home has 6 bedrooms and a variety of different bed sizes and options. Let us know what would work best for you and we'll make it happen! The indoor play area is fantastic for smaller kids on a day off from sight seeing or while others are out on the slopes/trails. You don't need a car to find some of the best hiking in the Hills, just open the back door and start going up!

The wall of windows in the great room is the perfect backdrop to your family dinner.

The interior is all custom designed and built. It is luxurious without being too fancy for a family to enjoy.

We're happy to help you plan the perfect vacation! Let us know what you want or need and we'll work to get it for you!

Reunion Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nineteen, including a 7-week-old baby, enjoyed the perfect home in which to vacation. Lots of room for everyone to spread out or gather together in the gorgeous fully-equipped kitchen and LR. The little grandchildren LOVED the giant playroom downstairs, and the adults and teens appreciated the spacious outdoor hot tub. This home is set in the beautiful Black Hills - awesome scenery and many hiking paths. Also there are dozens of sightseeing opportunities in the general area. Nemo House was an ideal spot for our family reunion!

Owner's Response: Martha, Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure working with you and getting to know you. We're glad that all ages were able to enjoy the house. That is what we strive for! It is nice when getting together with family that you haven't seen in a while to have lots of options for the kids so that the adults can catch up without constantly watch the children. Come back again anytime! Jennifer

An awesome home for our ATVing getaway in the Black Hills

  • 5 of 5

This property was AMAZING! The location was nice and quiet and you sure had your privacy! The home is absolutely beautiful, had everything you could imagine in the kitchen to use for entertaining! Our group was 10 adults and our 7 year old granddaughter, when she went in the basement to see the indoor play area for kids she was speechless until the words finally came out of her mouth....THIS IS A CHILDS DREAM! It had so much for her to do, activities and toys galore. This home is so spacious and the bedrooms were all so nice and plenty of bathrooms! We came out here with our ATV's and the trail were easy access! This home is more than described and would highly recommend this home for a family/friend getaway! The homeowners were very quick to answer any questions we had and were so accommodating! Thank you Jennifer for sharing your home for our getaway with our family and friends, many fun memories were made!

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you enjoyed our home! I know when we travel with kids we're always appreciative of a home that is set up with lots of activities to keep kids busy so that the adults can get a little time to relax. That is what we tried to do with this home! The indoor play ground, games and craft table are perfect for any rainy days and the sand box and big swingset outside for sunny days. We'd love to have you back anytime! Jennifer

Party of 12

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Nemo house was such a blessing ! We were a group of 12, 10 on motorcycles and 2 in a jeep. All were comfortable in our own bedrooms, and so much room to spread out. It was clean, comfortable,and the perfect jumping off spot for day rides into the beautiful Black Hills. Jennifer was amazing ! Quickly answered all emails and inquiries, even went above and beyond by stocking the freezer with Papa Murphys Pizza's to be ready for us after our 475 mile, hot and windy journey from Minnesota.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family stayed here for 6 nights, there are 3 levels to the home which offers space and privacy, no matter the number of people in the home. The indoor play area is great for keeping the kids busy, and the extra large kitchen has tons of space for all the food and plenty of seating area. The owners are very accommodating as they even moved beds around for our sleeping preferences for the kids. The home is close to a highway, yet still off the beaten path. We had a great time, and highly recommend this cabin!
