WiFi is not available in our neighborhood. Your hotspot or cellular data with AT&T or Verizon will work exceptionally well (you can see their towers from our home).

We also do not have cable/satellite TV. There are three TVs with DVD players throughout our home; two have digital converter antennae.

Old No. 7 Place is easy to find. POWDER HOUSE PASS is centrally located in the Northern Hills just off US 14a. We have WIDE PAVED ROADS, perfect for trailers, snowmobiles and motorcycles. We are close to Lead for convenient grocery shopping, restaurants, liquor store & brewery, movie rentals, and gas stations. Our development gives you easy access to sightseeing and both summer and winter activities, but to us it is known as relaxation central.

So what can you expect when you arrive? As you wind up our private drive you will cast your eyes on our 5-bedroom home nestled among the pine and the aspen. Three levels of living in 4800 square feet give your family and friends plenty of together space - and plenty of escape routes. You get so much space for the money.

The MAIN LEVEL features a large laundry/mudroom to drop all of your 'stuff', powder room, master suite, great room spotlighting an inviting REAL WOOD BURNING fireplace, and our favorite... a large, well-equipped kitchen/dining room. We made it EXTRA SPACIOUS because everyone always wants to hang out in the kitchen. The tile floor is heated because I don’t like cold feet. Elderly or those who don't do stairs have all amenities on one level. Relax in the seclusion of our log home, taking in the serene wilderness as you hear the wind whistle through the trees or laze before the wall of windows taking pleasure in a crackling, wood fire.

The UPPER LEVEL has 2 more bedrooms with a shared bath and an extra powder room. There's a lot of flexibility in sleeping arrangements in case Mom & Dad need to be near little ones - one room is a full bed and the other has 2 XL twin beds that can convert into a king bed. The loft boasts a lot of space with a reading spot, a game table, and it extends into the TV room with more games and books. Fun, fun, fun is the name of the game up here.

The LOWER LEVEL is where all the movie watching happens. No need to disturb the rest of the house. You can hang out in the cave all vacation long if you'd like (although I don't recommend it). Not your typical cold basement, the entire lower level boasts heated floors in the cold months. There are 2 more bedrooms and a larger shared bath. You will love the cabin's best kept SECRET: hidden down here is a bunk room - with 2 built-in bunk beds holding 2 twin beds each, and a double bed connected to them. What a great HIDEOUT for the kids on your trip, or maybe a retreat for the single people in your group... The bedroom across the hall has a queen bed. With 8 people sleeping down here, the bathroom has a large vanity with 2 sinks and plenty of towels, and places to hang them :).

Our spacious deck, spanning the full length of our home, is perfect for hosting your summer outdoor lunches and parties, while overlooking the vast outdoor scenery in which our home is located. And ohhh, the STARS, you've never seen so many stars at night. It doesn't get any better while soaking in our 5-6 person hot tub.

Your getaway is everything you make of it. I hope your dates are available on our calendar. It would be a shame to miss out on all we have to offer. Call anytime between 7:30am and 10:30 pm Central time.

About Jennifer Erickson, owner

We are Jason & Jennifer and we have 3 children and 2 dogs. We've lived in South Dakota all of our lives and grew to LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Black Hills. The kids don't remember us NOT coming here. We started out coming as a get-away, just the two of us. Since 2004, we've been bringing our friends along. We'd find a house with 4 or more bedrooms and bring 2 or 3 other families, with all their kids, along with us. The grown-ups got bedrooms with beds, the kids got what was left over. Those were some of the BEST vacations we've taken. This house was 3 years in the planning stages, and it took over a year to build it. In the design process, I kept trying to make the house smaller, but this is where we will someday live.... FOREVER. Today: we have kids who want to bring friends along with us for the weekends. We also have lots of families that we've shared the Black Hills with, and why shouldn't they come and stay with us, in our home? Down the road( who am I kidding, Zach already has) the kids will be asking for the keys to the log home (oh no) and they'll be sharing the Black Hills with friends that they've met along the way. And eventually: we will live here, just the 2 of us. I envision the kids and their spouses staying in the rooms they grew up in, and the bunk room being FULL of GRANDKIDS! This home was a vision for us. I hope you enjoy sharing it with us.

Jennifer Erickson, owner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Jennifer Erickson, owner chose Black Hills

Western South Dakota is so very different from Eastern South Dakota. There's no humidity, there aren't many bugs, there's not much wind, things are a little more laid back, and there's such a wide variety of things to do. In the spring months, we have literally skied one day at Terry Peak and golfed the next in Rapid City, less than an hour away. And Fall in Spearfish Canyon, it just takes your breath away. Motorcycling is what brought us here. It's the best 2-wheeled riding in the state. Jason says the Hills are like a mini Denver climate. But what kept us coming back, is that no matter which home we rented, we were AWAY FROM IT ALL. There's no place that relaxes us more than being in the Hills, and no other place we miss more when we leave.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home! It was a perfect spot for our family vacation! I have three little grandchildren (4, 3, and 18 months) and the space was perfect for them to run around and play. My son in law's parents came from CA and my son joined us from FL (just as hurricane Irma was hitting his area). The kitchen is magnificent and stocked with everything we needed and more! We enjoyed attractions the Black Hills, visited Mt. Rushmore (on 9/11), and also spent a day just relaxing at the cabin. We had a fire in the awesome fireplace every night and some fun playing cards (spoons) upstairs after the little ones went to bed in the basement. This was our first time ever renting a home and we LOVED it! I have a feeling we will be talking about "the cabin" for many many years = )

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ten were very comfortable at Old #7. The house is beautiful and has everthing you could possibly need. We used the kitchen everyday for breakfast and our evening meal. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. This was my first trip to the Black Hills, and it certainly is beautiful. Hope to come back soon!
