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.

This charming cabin sits on a five-acre parcel where you will enjoy plenty of privacy without any other structures around, and it is not within a development. We have been listed in the Insider's Guide since 1997 and operate under a South Dakota lodging license. We also have a cottage on the east end of our property (on another five acres) that you can find under VRBO listing #167320. Our cabin and cottage are both completely fenced and have metal entrance gates. You can view each one on our website link below where you will find more detailed information as well as more inside photos. We answer every request we receive.

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.
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.
Our log cabin is bordered on the south by U.S. Forest Service land and overlooks a meadow to the north. We are close to Wonderland Cave as well as Dalton Lake for fishing and Little Elk Canyon for hiking.
