Our historic log cabin in Vanocker Canyon is the perfect vacation rental for your visit to the Black Hills. This original CCC cabin has been updated to provide a unique lodging experience during your visit to the Black Hills. It is centrally located to all attractions, both north and south, and just 30 minutes from Deadwood and Rapid City, and 4 miles north of Nemo. We operate under Lodging License #3569 thru the State of South Dakota and the 6% sales tax is included in the nightly rate.
Whether you are enjoying your honeymoon, a family vacation or just a weekend getaway, our log cabin will offer you a memorable experience of your visit to the Black Hills. Not only will you enjoy the seclusion in Vanocker Canyon, but you will be happy you chose this beautiful area to "get away from it all". We hope to see you soon!
Nearby Dalton Lake and Little Elk Canyon are 4 miles to the east with great fishing and hiking. Wonderland Cave is just up the road and is one of the prettiest crystal caves in the Black Hills. The town of Nemo is 3 miles to the south with a small mercantile and The Brandin' Iron Café.
We are available to answer any questions you may have about the area, as well as offer you suggestions for day trips. Wolfgang has built many hiking trails and bridges in the Black Hills while he was contracting with the Forest Service, so we can guide you to some great hiking areas.
The Dalton Lake trailhead to the Centennial Trail is 4 miles to the east. It is the only motorized section of the Trail that leads thru the back woods from Dalton Lake to Pilot Knob--about an 11 hour ride.
Unfortunately, we cannot have any pets in our cabin. You are welcome to smoke outside on the porch.
