What makes this house unique

Nice quiet refreshing area. We actually like the area in the colder months enjoying the large wood burning fireplace and solitude. The house is available year round for occupancy.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with an unbeatable view. Off the beaten path enough to feel private but close to the action. Very happy with the stay.

Beautifully furnished home, overlooking the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely lake house for 4 nights during our first trip to Lewis and Clark lake! Two of our sons and their wives, our daughter, and our 2 year old grandson went with us. We had a wonderful time!

Scott, the owner, was very helpful and kind. He answered all of our questions and was always prompt and courteous.

The house is fully stocked (including the kitchen) with great helpful items to make your stay more enjoyable.

We enjoyed spending relaxing time together doing low-key things, such as taking walks, having campfires in the fire-pit (complete with S'mores), and stargazing in the clear night sky.

Crofton is just a few miles away, and we visited Yankton several times. There are lots of restaurants and shopping opportunities there; including a Hy-Vee grocery store and, of course, Wal-Mart.

Our family enjoyed a day at the Lewis and Clark State Recreation area on the SD side of the lake, where we found a swimming beach in the sun, with nearby picnic tables in the shade.

One suggestion! Get good directions, when you go, because some of the Maps applications we used weren't clear about where the house was. It helps to know that the street you turn on to from the main road is called "Elkhorn". After that, it's easier to find.

Thanks again for letting us stay in your lovely home. It was just the right vacation for us!

Great Family Get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying at this house. New owners but same great home and care! The house is fully equipped with all the necessities as well as a fully stocked kitchen. We were able to make Chili on our cool fall day with all the necessary utensils! The owners were wonderful to work with and very receptive and helpful with all our questions. There is no wireless internet or cable on the TV (this may be a benefit for some :). Although some channels do come in through the antenna TV we brought one of our CHROMCAST (APPLE TV would work too) and used our cell phone as a Hot Spot so we could watch the NE football game. This was a mild inconvenience but really only during Football season :) I believe the owner mentioned he was going to purchase an APPLE TV for the cabin as well. Overall great cabin and experience! Thanks to the Pfiefer’s For sharing their home!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. Glad to hear that you had a great stay. Will get the Apple TV or Chromcast figured out, too bad the football game turned out not so good:( Also thanks for being great guests. The house was clean and in good shape when you left and payment was paid in advanced. Thank you and you are welcome back.

So cozy and felt at home

Beautiful spacious home and so comfortable! Everything we needed and the children were so happy with the toys and games ,movies and music available to use ! We were very happy my only wish was a clear trail to walk to the lake but a landslide made it not accessible yet all in all a great home and very nice owners !

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited the cabin with 2 other family friends of ours (6 adults and 5 kids under 3). The house was magnificent! It fit all of us comfortably and the view is unbeatable. The cabin was thoroughly cleaned before our arrival. It had all the amenities we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked. There were plenty of clean towels and blankets. There was even a nice flat screen for us to watch football all weekend. It is an antenna TV (but main channels come in great). There is an APPLE TV there so we used our cell phones for hotspots when needed (i.e. ESPN). There's an awesome BOSE sound bar as well. Needless to say, the men were happy. There was a nice open basement for the kids to play and open and functional kitchen for us to cook! We didn't need to leave the site all weekend! Will definitely be back!

Family fun paradise

  • 5 of 5

We love this cabin!! This is the second year we have rented it for our family, and we would love to come every year. The comfortable house, the lake view, the fire pit, the nearby marina, and the great memories we've made here make it a very special place!
