About the property

Sleeps 4 in two bedrooms, 1 bath, greatroom /kitchen. Giant TV and fireplace.

This unit has a master bedroom and second bedroom, one bathroom. It sleeps four comfortably. Sheets, towels, and laundry supplies are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped. It is located on 5 private acres, with a million trees and a million night-time stars. Easy access to Deadwood and the Northern Hills, and the Mt. Rushmore area, including Custer State Park, and the Crazy Horse monument. Hiking is right outside the door, and there is a creek at the end of the driveway. At the end of a long day of sight-seeing, go to the beach at Roubaix and swim, raft, fish, or just watch the fish jump and the hawks dive for the fish.

Unfortunately, due to landscaping issues, we are not able to accept ATVs. Motorcycles just fine.

About Carol Hayse

I am a retired clinical Social Worker who practiced for many years with children and adults with disabilities. I grew up in the Black Hills, received my Masters Degree at the University of Iowa, and moved to Chicago for 38 years. I am now happy to return to the peace and beauty of the Hills. We built Shady Grove in 2006 and have been delighted to meet our marvelous guests--all with interesting stories to tell and unique life journies.

Carol Hayse purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Carol Hayse chose Nemo

We love the fact that the house is located in a quiet space, but accessible to all the delights of the Black Hills.

What makes this cabin unique

Shady Grove

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Shady Grove in Nemo and absolutely loved it. We rented the lower level and it was very impressive. The home was very clean and the location was perfect. Private patio out back had a great view of the surrounding hills and nearby stream. The inside of the unit was decorated very well. It was centrally located between Mt. Rushmore and Deadwood so it made our day trips very manageable. The owners live on-site and were very helpful with recommendations. They are also very pet and child friendly which made our stay even more pleasant. I would recommend Shady Grove to anyone visiting the Black Hills.

Shady Grove is located in a quiet area of the Black Hills, a short distance from historic Deadwood, and easily accessible to Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Crazy Horse monument, and all the amazing sights and activities of the Black Hills. In addition to those just named, don't miss Spearfish Canyon and the two waterfalls in it. The Canyon is a geological wonderland with beauty and surprises on every hiking trail.
