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.......

Rustic solitude

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend to visit my niece at Augustana University. After a slight snafu with google maps sending us 3 miles north of the actual address we arrived at our destination at the end of a gravel road. I would advise arriving in daylight if at all possible. The cabin is elegantly rustic and in the middle of nowhere high on a hill with beautiful vistas every direction. It is about 5 miles into Larchwood where there is a small nice grocery (closed on Sunday), and 2 very close golf courses friendly to my 90 yo dad. Walking trails are fantastic,through meadows,woods, and river edge,excellently groomed. Also a great workout with steep hills. The hot tub felt great and also pristine.

Some suggestions...in the late afternoon the open living area gets very warm from the setting sun. The sun is so bright that it makes it difficult to cook. Keep in mind that I am somewhat of a gourmet cook. The kitchen has great appliances but lacks serving bowls, mixing bowls and is somewhat unorganized ( I had to search a deep drawer with exposed knives to find measuring spoons etc). No doubt this is a legacy of too many cooks in the kitchen. Our only other negatives were the two queen size beds downstairs. The pillows were hard and every time your partner wiggled the whole mattress would wiggle. I would relegate these bedrooms to the kids. Keep in mind that the upstairs bedrooms are open to the floor below.

We would love to return and perhaps we will. Great place!
