HISTORIC BLACK HILLS CABIN IN VANOCKER CANYON ON 5 ACRES

Sturgis Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

You will love staying at Little Elk Cabin in Scenic Vanocker Canyon. We are only 12 miles south of Sturgis in one of the most beautiful areas in the Black Hills. This spectacular canyon road was fully paved from Nemo to Sturgis 10 years ago. Our log cabin has one bedroom on the main floor, sofa bed in living room, and two twins in the one-half story loft. You can see more detailed information for both of our vacation rentals by searching 'Little Elk Cabin & Cottage' under any search engine. If you hike and love the outdoors, we also have a photo book on our website of the many trails Wolfgang has constructed in the Black Hills.

Our log cabin was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 30s and has been completely renovated and restored to provide the perfect lodging choice for a family vacation, honeymoon or weekend getaway.

Nearby Dalton Lake is stocked with trout every spring and Little Elk Canyon is perfect for a short hike. Wonderland Cave is within minutes and is an interesting stop for all ages. The picturesque town of Nemo offers horseback riding and the historic Brandin' Iron Cafe. The Friday Night fishfry has become a local favorite. The Nemo area is a gorgeous part of the Black Hills as well as scenic Vanocker Canyon.

We have lived in the Black Hills for over 30 years where we have built our own home, our log cabin and new cottage. Wolfgang has built many hiking trails, as well as 16 bridges in the Black Hills, several on the Mickelson Trail as well as Spearfish Canyon.

Wolfgang & Kathleen Schmidt purchased this cabin in 1987

We fell in love with the Vanocker Canyon area when we moved here from California in the late Seventies. We especially enjoy the small town of Nemo 3 miles to the south of us. We built these two vacation rentals so visitors may share this pretty and historical area with the people who live here.

Our property is very private and you will enjoy all the wildlife that make this area their home. You will hear the bull elk in the fall and see the turkeys nesting in the tall pines nearby.

You may view our website if you scroll down about 5 lines to 'Links to More Information'. There is a link to our 2nd VRBO listing as well.

SO GLAD WE PICKED THIS ONE!

  • 5 of 5
So glad we rented this cabin! It was perfect for my husband and me. It is so charming and peaceful. The owners were very nice to meet and then they left and gave us our total privacy. They thought of everything in this cabin! The property was so beautiful, and smelled so wonderful! (clean air and fresh pine) The location was great, we weren't far from anything we wanted to do, north or south!
We would definitely rent this cabin again.

LOVELY CABIN

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were very pleased to stay at this beautiful cabin in the hills. The cabin is very clean and I wished that I could live in this lovely place. The price was very fair and the owners were nice people. We only briefly met them but I wished that I had asked them to stay for dinner. Wolfgang (owner) has forged many walking trails in the Black Hills, we took trail 76 and were thrilled with the view. The Nemo area is very beautiful, don't hesitate to rent this very comfortable and clean cabin.

PRESSURE RELIEF

  • 4 of 5
Our four days at the Little Elk cabin was like controlled decompression. Kathleen and Wolfgang were a pleasure to meet (Wolfgang's accent is the perfect match for that great name) and they made us feel welcome and comfortable. Quiet close encounters with wild turkeys were frequent, and the Elk bugle at 8:15am was so close that we wonder that we never caught sight of him. A very pleasant vacation thanks to Kathy and Wolfgang Schmit.

LOVED THE CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was just the perfect get-away we were looking for. The owners are very nice and keep the cabin clean and maintained. The lake 4 miles away is great for fishing and lots of hiking. Close proximity to Lead/Deadwood and Boondocks. Beautiful country!! Would definitely stay again.

FEELS LIKE HOME

  • 4 of 5
Have stayed here twice now - both times the later part of September. It's very peaceful sitting on the porch in the evening or early morning. Both my husband and I enjoy the rustic atmosphmere of the cabin. Yet it has all the amenities you need. The cabin location is close enough to go into Sturgis, Hill City or Deadwood for dinner. But we find that once we're here we'd rather not leave. Dalton Lake is a short drive away that has a great trail for hiking. The fact that there are no other cabins around is a plus! Great place to relax. Wolfgang and Kathleen are very accomodating and are great hosts.
