About kevin kuiper

I'm a real estate broker in Sioux Falls. When we bought this property we had the intention to develop it with 5 or 6 homes with privacy and fantastic river views. We just have not been able to part with any of it and decided to just share it with everyone with this vacation rental home....

kevin kuiper purchased this cabin in 2011

Why kevin kuiper chose Iowa

We found this beautiful piece of real estate about 15 years ago, were finally able to purchase it about 7 years ago and decided we really just wanted to share it with the world a little. It had been in the same family for 3 generations, ever since it was aquired from the government over 100 years ago. It has not had much human activity over the years, just quietly co-existing along a mile of the Big Sioux River. Whitetail deer, pheasants and turkeys enjoy the solitude there.

What makes this cabin unique

We've really enjoyed hiking the property over the years. Just pick a deer trail and follow it and discover the beauties of nature.

You can hunt, hike or ride horse at either Hidden Bridge or Peterson Preserve which adjoins our property to the East and North.

Notes:
Miles and miles of deer trails to hike or ride your horse on 95 acres on the property, adjoined by another 1,000 acres of state property available for hiking and horse riding. Hunting is also available on the state owned land. Several firepits are available for outdoor campfires. Also, we DO NOT allow hunting or target practice on the property with guns. Our neighbor to the North was sitting on his deck one nice day last summer and a bullet hit his deck within 20 feet of where he was sitting. Because of the limited visibility of the woods, hills and grasses and because other people use other parts of the land for hiking, horse riding, picnicking and other (usually non-profit group) activities, we decided we just couldn't risk it again. Sorry. There are gun ranges in Sioux Falls and Brandon.......

Large Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great getaway with Grandma, the kids & grandkids (ages 1-60+) at this cabin. We had 14 people and never felt cramped. There was plenty of space for everyone and plenty for everyone to do. The beds were AMAZING!!! It was the first time I've ever slept on a bed that was more comfortable than my own bed at home. I seriously wanted to take it home with me! The cabin was absolutely gorgeous inside and out! It was equipped with everything we needed, so we only needed to take food and drinks, which was great! We saw several bald eagles flying around outside the big windows, which everyone loved. It was also very convenient being so close to Sioux Falls because a few people went into town for some shopping. Kevin was great to schedule the cabin with and always got back to us quickly with any questions we had. Awesome trip!

A Place Where Memories are Made

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the weekend of Dec 9th-11th 2016. This is the second year we brought our family to this cabin to celebrate Christmas. Again we had a lovely stay. I appreciate the upgrades and that the lower level now has it's own heating source. Love watching the deer that roam the area as well as watching the eagles fly over the river. We brought the grandchildren ages 6 months to 11 years and they all had a blast. Memories are definitely made here. Thanks for letting us stay here a second time! Hope to be back again some day.

Beautiful home and view. Would love to have our family Christmas Eve there.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, comfortable, clean home with a scenic view. We especially enjoyed the hot tub on the cold November morning while watching the eagles in the sky and the chickadees on the nearest tree. The beds were comfortable and the large dining table was perfect for our group to play board games. The owner was very prompt with his responses and deposit return. I would recommend a railing for the steps leading up to the front door. Would love to have our family Christmas Eve/Christmas day there.
