About Kathryn Wilson or Brooke Hanson

We have lived on Lake Kampeska for fourteen 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, oak built-ins and a wood burning fireplace in the living room. 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.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time. The house was very charming, great location, very clean and well maintained property. Lots of room for the kids to play inside and outside. Our only issue was the mosquito's, they were awful. However, that won't stop us from returning! Very satisfied.

Great three days at Lake Kampeska!

  • 5 of 5

Ten total - five teenage girls and five adult women - had a wonderful stay at the Lake Kampeska Countryside Retreat. The house was perfect - very well maintained, everything one needs to feel at home, all with beautiful design. The owners were welcoming and gracious, and it has a new dining room table that seats ten people. We found a paddle boat/kayak/paddle board rental in the park across the lake. Also, the neighbors offered the use of their paddle boards to the girls. Thank you all for a wonderful time at the lake!

Very well maintained Lake Home!

My sisters and I really enjoyed your lake home! We felt so welcome with the flowers and wine that were left for us as we arrived on our first day. Your home is very well managed and maintained. Thank you for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks Craig. We enjoyed visiting with your family and we took your suggestion about a larger dining room table. We now can seat ten at the hard wood table and still offer the card table with seating for four.
