About Stephanie Nesselhuf

Lived in Rapid City for 5 years and reaized the opportunities available for people to vacation to this beautiful area of the country. The locals are so kind, the weather is beautiful, smell of the pine trees, history and outdoor sights are unbelievable.

Stephanie Nesselhuf purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Stephanie Nesselhuf chose Black Hills

It is close enough to Canyon Lake to rent paddle boats or enjoy a stroll around the lake. Close to the hills, easy access to Hwy 44W to get to northern or southern hills and very clean accomidations.

What makes this cabin unique

Extremely quiet living, clean accomidations, fully furnished, close to golf course, fish hatchery, dog park, bike path and Canyon Lake.


Excellent! 4.5/5 -

Had never been to So. Dakota and didn't really know what to expect. It's now one of our new favorite vacation spots!! What a wonderful week, and it got off to a great start the minute we stepped into this cozy little cabin/house in an adorable neighborhood. It was well appointed right down to the dog dish!! Had the pleasure of meeting Stephanie while there and she was warm and welcoming just as I had expected from our pre-trip emails and messages. We spent the week exploring, hiking, meeting and getting recommendations from locals!! It was wonderful! Favorites included the almost 2 hour drive to Devils Tower in Wyoming, The Badlands, Spearfish Canyon with lunch at Lewies on the way. Had lots of fun in Sturgis and Deadwood. Would NOT recommend the weekend dinner theater in Deadwood, Nellie's Revenge. We left at intermission. But that was truly the only thing we did that was less than wonderful! Be sure to have the bread pudding at The Alpine Inn in Hill City! Oh my goodness!!!! We will definitely return and when we do, we'll be calling Stephanie to stay again!! Thanks for everything!

Perfect for a small family.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Stephanie's cabin for a week at the end of Sept and beginning of November 2016. The cabin was small, clean and comfortable and perfect for three, and two small dogs. The back yard is fenced in for the dogs to run and play. There was adequate sleeping for at least five or six. I loved that there was a washer and dryer. It is located in a nice residential area adjacent to Canyon Lake Park, which was beautiful this time of year and perfect for morning or evening walks. The location is central to many of the sights (especially loved the badlands, Custer park and Deadwood). Steph was always available and responsive to our questions. Thanks again for the lovely stay!

Perfect Black Hills getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Steph's cabin for a long weekend in mid-September and it was wonderful! Steph made the process of renting so easy --- she was quick to respond to any questions and really made it stress-free. I had never rented through a site like this before and was a little apprehensive, but it ended up being a wonderful experience. The cabin itself is in a great location, so close to the beautiful Canyon Lake Park. When we arrived, the inside was very clean and we were impressed to find it stocked with so many little amenities. The place had some natural wear and tear (which we liked), but everything appeared to be very well maintained and tidy. One of the best parts was the fenced in backyard --- the dogs absolutely loved it! During our stay we ventured out on some hiking trips, and each time we looked forward to returning to the cabin to relax and unwind. I would rent this place again in a heartbeat, we felt right at home!

Family Stay in the Black Hills

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1 week in late June 2016. The whole process of making the reservation and planning our trip was wonderful because Stephanie was prompt in answering my e-mails, texts and phone calls. She directed us to great restaurants and attractions as well. The bungalow was clean and what I expected for my stay in the Black Hills. This bungalow has clearly been used over the years but it has been maintained well over time. I did not feel like I had to be super-duper careful about making a scratch somewhere because there are a few scratches and dents here and there throughout the place and that made me happy so I did not have to worry as much about my kids scratching something. It had two small rooms with a loft above one of the rooms. It allowed my wife and I some privacy each night from our kids, which is not an option in a Hotel room. There is only one in-window air-conditioner but it was able to cool the whole place without a problem. We stayed during an unusually hot streak but the air conditioner kept up just fine. Everything we needed was included in this rental: dishes, forks, spoons, ketchup, dish soap, laundry detergent, fan (for white noise), extension cord, outdoor grill, pots/pans, batteries, and the list goes on. I particularly liked the location just inside the city so we could take advantage of the city benefits such as great restaurants, grocery store, etc. The drives to the main attractions did not take us very long (20-30 minutes or so) depending on the particular site. We had car trouble during our trip and Stephanie enabled us to get right in to her auto repair people so we did not have to disrupt our vacation at all. They promptly fixed our car and did not gouge us on price either.

Winter 2015

  • 4 of 5

I spent December through February in Steph's Bungalow. Overall it was very comfortable. Any problems were handled quickly.

The one of the best things about the bungalow is its location. Canyon lake is beautiful and a short walk away.

Bike and walking trails across the street which run along Rapid creek.

The Bungalow is the perfect location for sightseeing. Mount Rushmore, Sturgis, Deadwood and Spearfish are 45 minutes or less drive.

I would definitely stay again.

Very convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Stephanie's cottage from 6/7/15-6/11/15. We found the cottage clean, pleasant, and ideally located for our Black Hills vacation. We brought our dog and really loved the fact that we had a private backyard for her to play. Also, we liked that we were within walking distance to the beautiful Canyon Lake Park.

At one point in our stay, we had a minor problem and called Stephanie the owner, she got back to us in a very timely manner.

When we come out to the Black Hills next time, we will probably stay here again. I just don't think we can beat this property for convenience and price.

Owner's Response: Thank you Andrea. I appreciated you putting in the dates of your stay so people reading these reviews can realize you stayed right before the negative review and were satisfied. I hope you do come back and enjoy the home again. I have had 3 return parties in the last few years so I hope to add you to the list :)
