About Kathryn Wilson or Brooke Hanson

We have lived on Lake Kampeska for sixteen years. This area of Kampeska boasts the best sandy beach on the lake. Our children and grandchildren also live in the neighborhood and can be seen enjoying all the lake has to offer.

Kathryn Wilson or Brooke Hanson purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathryn Wilson or Brooke Hanson chose South Dakota

We bought this home because it reminded us of our farm house near Redfield, SD. All of the original oak woodwork, wood burning fireplace, oak floors and spacious, tree filled lot are some of the reasons we had to have it. We live across the street from our rental property.

What makes this house unique

This older two-story home was built in 1919. It has original hardwood floors and many, oak built-ins throughout the home. Enjoy the view of the lake from the ten foot window seat. Exquisite craftsmanship is showcased throughout. The kitchen has been updated with new cabinetry, granite countertops, island and gas stove.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Grandchildren called it "Grandma's Christmas House" and want to come back next year. A million thank yous! You have a very nice rental house! We enjoyed our stay here, were impressed with how nice you have fixed it up. Thank you for such a fun experience. Loved this house! Thank you so much!

Great space

  • 4 of 5

We used this property to host a graduation reception and even though it rained the whole weekend, there was plenty of space for people to sit or gather to talk. My only recommendation to make the experience better would be some better quality toilet paper.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing a review of our retreat. We are happy your family had lots of room to spread out and enjoy the weekend. We have purchased many different brands of bathroom tissue and have not had any issues before. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We checked it out and will not be purchasing that brand again.

Perfect for a multi family gathering

  • 5 of 5

My extended family gathered here to celebrate the holidays. We brought our own food and foil for cooking, everything else was provided. Lovely home. The owners were professional and prepared the home well for our arrival. We will stay here again.

7 women from ND, SD, FL, DC, and WA loved this place

  • 5 of 5

7 women stayed here for 5. Nights and it was perfect for us. We enjoyed all the space indoors as well as outdoors. We had several fires in the fire pit which made the time even more enjoyable.

We attempted to recycle but it looked like our rcycling was placed in the garbage bin. It said single sort and we did that. Not sure if something wasn't to be recycled or not, like glass. We wish we would have known that.

We were surprised at the lack of accuriments in the kitchen, not even salt and pepper.

We would come back again if given the chance but we know we would need to being more.

We were unable to get both the tv work and the fireplace. The tv was not at all easy to figure out.
