Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + 3.5 Bathrooms, garage, easy access

The cabin is centrally located, just five miles north of Nemo and only 15 minutes from Deadwood. It's very private and perfect for a romantic weekend, family vacation, or outdoor sports and hunting trips. The cabin has a vaulted ceiling, large deck, new appliances, beautiful views and an attached garage - perfect for bikers who want to protect their motorcycles.

It is located within short driving distance of all the Black Hills attractions, including Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, historic Deadwood, Custer State Park, Sturgis, and Rapid City.

Built in 2015, this newly furnished and professionally decorated cabin nestled in the woods is the ideal destination for those who want to get away from it all while being centrally located to all the Black Hills has to offer.

About Mike Laird

We are two couples who have been friends for many years. We've all lived in the Black Hills since the 80s so we love the area and know it very well. We became interested in vacation rentals a few years ago and are confident we can provide a great experience for our guests.

Mike Laird purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Mike Laird chose Nemo

After buying and managing our first beautiful little 2 bedroom cabin in 2012 (Secluded Pines Cabin #949926), we thought it's time we tried a little bigger one so we bought a nearby lot, designed and built this 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath multi-level cabin with great features and beautiful decor specifically tailored toward a vacation rental. Check it out and let us know how we did.

What makes this cabin unique

Specifically designed to be a vacation rental this fully equipped cabin provides privacy and comfort for all guests with three bedroom/bathroom options, each with a plush king bed. Half of the cabin is surrounded by deck with the main deck overlooking a creek bottom where you're sure to see deer, turkey and other wildlife. The attached garage provides easy access to the cabin to protect you from the elements on those occasional nasty days.

Great home in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 just returned from a week stay at the Shiprock Cabin and could not have been happier! The owners were very easy to work with, the cabin is beautiful, and the location was the right mix of seclusion and accessibility to all the Black Hills has to offer. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in this area.

Gorgeous House in Serene Setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent Memorial Day weekend at Shiprock Cabin and had an amazing time! I looked all over VRBO for the perfect rental, and this was it! The home is brand new and is decorated beautifully. Additionally, the home was incredibly well-stocked with everything and anything you might need. We have stayed in many vacation homes, and we have never seen this level of detail or care!

It is true that there is no cell service at the cabin, but since there was WiFi, it was never that big of a deal. There is also a land line in the home, which we used occasionally. The lack of cell service is a trade-off we were willing to make because it was great to be off the beaten path.

If we ever return to South Dakota, we would love to stay in Shiprock Cabin again! We have already recommended it to our family and friends.

Stunning in every way!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank Mike and his fellow owners for the most amazing week at Shiprock Cabin. It was purely and completely fantastic in every way possible.

The cabin itself is immaculately kept, has wonderful linens and towels provided, and everything you could want in the kitchen, including some specially delivered cookie sheets so we could bake Christmas cookies.

The home is decorated simply and beautifully, which added to our fabulous experience. We spent a lot of time indoors as the weather was extremely cold, and the cabin provided the perfect atmosphere. The grounds around the cabin were perfect for hiking, snow shoeing and exploring. We were plowed out early in the morning by Arlyn so we could head out for our adventures.

The communication from the owners was exceptional from our initial contact with them many months ago. We never had to ask or write twice, which was very much appreciated. They checked in with us during our stay to be sure we had what we needed. Mike, Arlyn, Kim and Lynnia we are deeply grateful for your sharing your cabin with us. Thank you very much. We will be back.

cabin was even better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was very well equipped with anything a person would need. Beds were very comfortable. Felt like home. Could use a blind on the window by the dining table for the sun in the morning. The fire table on the deck was great for sitting out on the deck during the chilly nights. We will be back.

Quiet and Relaxing. Great location! Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family event. Having three bedrooms and three private bathrooms and a nicely equipped kitchen and large open living/dining area was one of the reasons we chose this cabin and we cannot wait to return! We enjoyed the fire table in the evenings and had our coffee in the mornings on the deck to watch deer and listen to all the wildlife. It was a short drive to all the areas attractions but far enough off the beaten path that we enjoyed privacy after a hectic day of being sight-seers. The hosts are very attentive. If you want a nice clean place to stay and cook and really enjoy the Black Hills, try this cabin. We think it's a gem and are checking our calendars for a time when we can revisit it soon!
