These comfortably sleeps two. Stay right in Nemo on Nemo Rd - walk to the restaurant, ATV rentals, and mercantile! No long winding gravel roads - direct access to Rapid, Sturgis, Deadwood, Hill City! Relax in the 40' heated salt-water swimming pool!

This unit is located next to the Freebird Ranch Osprey poolhouse, giving amazing views and easy access to the 40' heated salt-water pool (seasonal June-Sept) and the rec-room with pool-table and foosball and an infrared sauna.

Nemo is known for it's cool mountain air that moves in every evening, but for those unusual very-warm days, there is a small air-conditioner to keep things comfortable. And also nearby is the poolhouse with a 40' heated salt water swimming pool (seasonal, approximately June through September) and a rec-room with pool-table, foosball, and exercise equipment are on the Ranch property and are for all Freebird Ranch guests (10am - 8pm). Nothing like a cool dip on a warm day!

Also for all to enjoy is the walking path along Box Elder creek.

We live in a property adjacent to this property, so we are close by if you need us.

Nemo is centrally located in the Black Hills with easy access to the cities of Deadwood, Rapid City, Sturgis, Spearfish, and Hill City to name a few. Also in the area are many popular destinations such as Mount Rushmore, Devil's Tower, Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park, The Badlands, The Needles, Caves, Spearfish Canyon, Reptile Gardens, Bear Country, Beautiful Lakes, and Terry Peak. More attractions, activities, and links at our website.

The property is bordered by the Black Hills National Forest and a year round creek that is the perfect habitat for wildlife, including beautiful brookies!

We look forward to you vacationing here in Nemo.

Lovely accommodations, beautiful view, fabulous pool

Traci was extremely hospitable and her rental reflected this. Lovely accommodations, beautiful view, fabulous pool, thoughtfully stocked home with everything you might need and then some. Our young family was thrilled with our stay and would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy the beauty of the black hills and surrounding area.

They have blown us out of the water!

Wow! The Cottage we stayed in for 4 days was well-appointed in every aspect. Nemo, SD is up in the mountains located in a beautiful area. The owners realize this and know that if you forgot something it would be a trip to go and get it so they do an amazing job to make sure you have everything you need. The Cottage was immaculately clean. You could probably bounce a quarter off the beds, seriously! The owners were very personable, communicative, and friendly. You can tell that Traci really enjoyed decorating this Cottage with mid-century modern furniture. She has a great eye. We also toured there other rental properties which were in tip-top shape and decorated beautifully.
This is our 5th BnB this summer and they have blown us out of the water. It will be difficult for other BnBs to meet these standards.

Nice porch to hang out on.

The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Nice porch to hang out on. The owners are very friendly. Nemo is very centrally located for all the tourist attractions. There is a restaurant and store by the house. If you book hear I highly suggest Needles Highway and 14A scenic highway. Rushmore was nice and Devils Tower in Wyoming was great. Crazy Horse in our opinions was not worth the time or entry fee. There is a place called the rock maze a few miles from the house. I would suggest that if you are into a little hiking. Overall the house and Black Hills was great!

Fantastic place to gather or relax.

The deck is a fantastic place to gather or relax. Very clean house with a fully stocked medicine cabinet, tons of towels, and all the kitchen dishes/utensils that you would need.

We loved the little cottage!

We loved the little cottage! Everything you could need was stocked in the cabinets, it was easy to find, and the complementary wine was a nice touch! Our favorite part was the location and the views.

Fantastic place and we will be back!!

We had a great experience at Traci's guest house. It was very clean with a high level of detail where everything was stored. The house has everything you need. Location wise is fantastic. Great view to enjoy while sitting in the deck, all places to visit are nearby, grocery store very close by, and a place to rent an ATV are 1 minute walking distance. Fantastic place and we will be back!!

I would definitely stay again.

We had such a great stay in Nemo at Traci's guesthouse. When we arrived, there was a bottle of wine waiting for us and getting access to the house was easy. She responded to our questions straight away. The house was really cool. It's close to all the attractions SD has to offer and the town of Nemo is a nice getaway with a great view. The home was a little smaller than I expected but regardless, I would definitely stay again. Thank you for a memorable stay!

Would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family!

This is a great little cottage, but fit our family of 5 just fine, with even a bed to spare. Cabin's retro decorations were great and was a very comfortable place to stay in a beautiful part of our country. Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park was an easy day trip, and Wonderland cave is also very close by. Would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family!
