A Rare Opportunity To Own Some Of The World’s Most Amazing Views!

One of the Black Hills most spectacular properties is now available for purchase. Featured on the Travel Channel’s Amazing Vacation Homes, the cabin is perched on the edge of South Dakota’s most scenic canyon still echoing with the footsteps of Native Americans, Coronado, European settlers, Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Each day you spend here, you’ll be greeted by abundant wildlife – the trumpet of an elk, the musical serenades of songbirds and the howls of coyotes. And it’s the only place in the Hills where a motorcycle can’t be heard!


Purchase includes the cabin, a separate bunkhouse, large decks, the surrounding 110 acres and, of course, the views. And since it’s part of the Black Hills’ newest Wilderness Preservation Community™ association you’ll have access to thousands of acres of national forest. In addition, the property has a well-established rental history – generating enough income to cover all expenses while still providing the owners more than 20 weeks of personal use each year. The listing price is $1,020,000. Contact us to arrange a tour or to make an offer. Or email Kevin Kuehn at
