Why Carol Hayse chose Nemo
I grew up in the Black Hills and left there, restless to see the world, when I graduated high school--couldn't wait to leave. Now that a few decades have passed, I could not wait to retire and get back for good.
What makes this Cabin unique
I have a very busy time of it when I can get out there. It takes a lot of energy to walk the woods and peaks with my dog, look out back to see if the bachelor elk is coming by, pick up fossils, watch the sunset from Custer Peak, lie on my back in an innertube, and meditate on the front lawn. When friends visit, we go to Deadwood, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and ride the 1880 train. The Warrior's Work gallery in Hill City is amazing, and Prairie Edge store and museum in Rapid in remarkable. Custer State Park is un-missable, and the rock shops and antique-ing are wonderful. Come on by!

Wonderful Fall Stay At Shady Grove Cabin
We had a wonderful stay at Shady Grove! The Cabin was very comfortable for my husband and I and our English Springer Spaniel, Coco. We loved our walks along the beautiful serenity of Benchwood Road in the early mornings and evenings.
The cabin kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need! The king bed was extremely comfortable and the sheets were oh-so-soft (I'm a sheet freak and these were top notch)! The cabin is decorated perfectly for the Black Hills of South Dakota and we enjoyed reading the books left out regarding the surrounding area giving us a great history of what the Black Hills were like in the past.
Carol and Lyn were very gracious hosts and we had several interesting conversations with them. They were always at hand when we had questions but never bothersome during our stay, giving us our privacy during our secluded stay in the Black Hills. Their dog Clancy was a real sweetheart!
Coco and I loved our coffee on the deck in the mornings watching the deer in the yard.
We would highly recommend staying at Shady Grove!!
What can we say, except that these folks were so interesting, respectful, and open. We'd love the opportunity to get to know them even better!

We had a wonderful time! The owner went above and beyond to help us with our wedding! Would definitely stay again!
Lori’s wedding flowers were sooo gorgeous. We were happy to help. Congrats to Lori and her husband. You would be welcome back.
Beautiful property, wonderful hosts
Quite get away
Gateway to the Hills
Our stay was wonderful, the setting is completely amazing and a total gateway to the beautiful blackhills. It is very rural so you will drive a bit to see any sites, however you will in return have a peaceful and tranquil setting.
The house is well taken care of and the owners are available for any questions or concerns that you might have. The Internet is slow and our cell phone coverage was in roaming, which provides the perfect excuse to disconnect and enjoy the area and surroundings.
My kids are already asking when we can return.
What a delightful family! We enjoyed interacting with their energetic and artistic children, who gave us pictures that we adore. We would very much welcome them back.
Beautiful location, bit of a drive
While the property is beautiful and in a beautiful rural setting, it is rural. Rapid City is about 30-40 min away so if you stay here and plan to do most of the tourist stuff in Rapid, you should plan on this drive to and from the property every day. Custer and Rushmore are all a decent driving distance as well. Also, the rural setting means slow-to-no internet connection. The owners certainly try but we believe it is simply the location. So if you need to work while on your travels, this might not be the best location. With that being said, the owners were always very kind and conversational when we crossed paths. Do bring your own toiletries. We were caught unaware when we could find no body soap or shampoo. This might be our lack of experience with VRBO's, (only 4th time) but this did cause a bit of an issue our first morning until we could get into Rapid City for these items.
We enjoyed having these folks here and would welcome them back. While we do not provide personal toiletries, we would certainly have lent the family some had we known. Yes, rural internet is dodgy, but the provider out here continues to say that fiberoptic is coming. We share the traveler's frustration. For many of our guests, the quiet and peaceful location is a plus, but the distance from some services can (all service are available in 18 miles) is something to adapt to.
Shady Grove is located on Nemo Road and Vanocker Canyon roads, beloved of Black Hills visitors.
