This cottage was designed as a "Tiny House" with comfort and efficiency in mind. It is very energy efficient and stays cool during hot summers and cozy warm during cold, snowy winters. This home offers a wonderful retreat from noise and the activity of daily life. We have hosted several medical students as they study for board exams. They have been very happy with the peaceful, private space. A private deck with table and chairs is perfect for morning coffee and quiet contemplation, yet spacious enough for Yoga at sunrise. There is an abundance of wildlife to watch. The deer, turkey, bunnies and eagles all contribute to this peaceful space. During winter this is a cozy space to snuggle-in and enjoy watching the snow fall. A perfect winter writer's retreat.
Entire cottage is your private sanctuary. We have organic, sustainable gardens that you are welcome to enjoy. You are welcome to wander through our Growing Dome greenhouse and pick fresh herbs for cooking. A swing set, climbing rope, and sand box are available for children to enjoy. Two hammocks under the pine trees are a great place to rest and relax.
PLEASE NOTE: Designed and built as a "Tiny House". The loft bedroom is accessible via a retractable ladder (shown in pictures) may not be appropriate for elderly or people with mobility issues.

We love having guests and enjoy sharing information about the Black Hills, fishing, hiking, kayaking, and frontier history. Let us know if you enjoy geology or caving (NSS member?). This is a fun place for geologists to explore. Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is here in August and we are more than happy to show you around the area.
We have 6 pet chickens (hens) and 2 friendly dogs.
