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 Larchwood

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.

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.......

Book club retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay and we will be back. The simple beauty and peacefulness of this retreat provide just what we need, comfortable and well appointed..truly a treasure. The host is accommodating and available if issues arise (they haven’t!). This stay we hiked nearby Good Earth and we always enjoy a quick trip to Larchwood for some small town good eating, but you could seriously be just as content to sit on the deck and soak in the beauty of nature.

Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us met from four different states and it was great!

We relaxed, played games, watched movies and relaxed some more. We had plenty of room for all of us and the beds were very comfortable. Loved the sunsets from those expansive windows. Would love to return again. Thanks Kevin for all your help!

Beautiful, spacious, great family gathering retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of the Sanctuary for our large family holiday gathering. The decor included lovely Christmas decorations. In addition to the five bedrooms, there were extra single mattresses available which the kids used to spread out downstairs in the large family room. It was a very cold weekend, so having the Wii system, foosball and pool table was a great addition, as was the outdoor hot tub. We also found a big plastic table that we used for a puzzle table. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen and appreciated how large and well stocked it was. We definitely recommend this place and would consider it for another of our own family gatherings.

Beautiful home in a very relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time over Thanksgiving at this VRBO. We took walks and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. The space was large enough for the grandchildren to play together and not always be always around the adults. Everything was clean and the kitchen was nicely furnished. We were THANKFUL for this house on this THANKSGIVING DAY!
