About John & Janet Wolfe

John retired from teaching high school History, US Government in 2008 and Janet retired from Non-Profit Development in 2008. We lived in Lake Tahoe for over 18 years and decided to relocate in 2009. John accepted a position with the US Forest Service in Nemo, SD. We had vacationed in the area a number of years...and thought what a wonderful place to live! We loved Lake Tahoe...and found this area as beautiful and more peaceful.

When we purchased the property we wanted to share with others the beauty, peace, and bountiful wildlife that we experience is in the area.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing some of the wonders of this area and some interesting stories too!

very nice and quiet.

The Wolfe's were great hosts. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. They even warned us of hail storm that was coming in to move a couple show cars we brought to safer parking on the property.

Well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Very clean property. Loved the little lake across the road, our boys had fun fishing it. The owners made us a wonderful pancake breakfast and even delivered! Very friendly. We had a very nice stay here and loved that it was in the middle of everywhere we wanted to go.

Large clean basement apartment/cold and dark

  • 1 of 5

Though the owners were very nice, the apartment was a disappointment .

It was eight steps down into a cold basement . The temperature was approximately 60° in the middle of summer . In order to keep warm we had to put on a wood-burning stove or space heaters and lots of clothing to sleep.

The only light that came in from the outside was from very small windows that were mostly covered by metal guards .

The beds were very comfortable , the kitchen well-equipped , and apartment was clean .

The bathroom , however was very hard for us to use . The toilet was up on a platform approximately 10 inches from the ground . There was not a handle to hold as you got up and down off this platform to use the toilet . Not at all safe for two senior citizens .

The property was remotely located off a dark road at night . We got lost coming home from Mount Rushmore evening program , as the house is not illuminated or visible from the road , We ended up having to call the owners to guide us home .

In addition to paying cleaning fee upfront we were charged additional because we didn't strip the beds and we didn't put the used towels in the proper hamper . Was also left a dish in the sink and a little bit of food on the stove . The owners who saw us daily never mentioned these requirements. Though it might be in a contract , We didn't remember the small print, being 68 and 77 years old .

The owners were very nice when we were there, and unkind after we left , by holding back some of our deposit.

I do not recommend this property to any seniors , anyone with allergies, or anyone who is sensitive to cold , If you want to see the daylight when you wake up in the morning , do not stay in this apartment . It has a nice backyard, and table to eat out, with lots of flowers and birds . Again, the owners were kind and helpful.

The Wolfes were great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We rented the downstairs portion of the house and it was very comfortable even during the hottest days (95 degrees on one day). Everything worked and there was plenty of room for two adults and three teenagers. The lake is right across the street so it's really close and the kids had a good time fishing. This location is pretty remote - plan on driving a while to go to any of the attractions (45 minutes plus) except for Deadwood which is about 20 minutes away. The closest big-box grocery stores are in Rapid City which is about 45 minutes. You can get a few things at some small markets (the Steel Wheel on Hwy 385 was the best) about 15 minutes away. The Steel Wheel is also the only store in the area that sells fishing licenses. The Wolfes couldn't have been better hosts - they were always checking that we had everything we needed. They brought down a newspaper every morning and were always available if we had any questions. The homemade cookies on our first day and the handmade tote were really nice touches. Your cell phone will probably not work here, but cell service is pretty shaky anywhere in the Black Hills. We have Verizon and T-Mobile and we only got service in the cities (Rapid City, Hill City, Keystone, etc.). The internet is also pretty slow, but that's to be expected due to the limited coverage. Neither was a problem for us because we wanted to "get away" from technology and this place was perfect for us.

We caught lots of rainbow trout in the pond, went on lots of hikes (Custer State Park and the Badlands were the best), went to Mount Rushmore, rode the 1880 train from Hill City to Keystone, rented bicycles from Rabbitt Bicycle in Hill City, and lots more. This area has a lot of fun things to do. We didn't eat out a lot, but the 50's diner in Hill City was pretty good. You're not going to have a lot of chain restaurants except in Rapid City, so you have to be a little adventurous.

You can't have any better hosts than the Wolfes and if you want a cool, comfortable retreat from the hustle and bustle of life, this place is definitely for you.

Beautiful location, great amenities, helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 adults and 5 kids ranging from 3-14 years old. Our 2 families were very comfortable and loved this home! Listing and pictures are very accurate - - very clean and very well maintained. Location is remote, but that was GREAT for our families - - especially the back yard with fire pit! We were close to Spearfish, Deadwood, Mt. Rushmore, a short drive to Devil's Tower and the Wind Cave. The owners John and Janet were so helpful and very responsive before and during our stay - - we had a fresh fire pit made up for us after each use even! Our families have already asked to go back to his vacation home - -we would absolutely recommend this home to our friends and families!! :)
