The Shipping Container Bunkhouse
The Shipping Container Bunkhouse
Really made from a shipping container, this tiny  cabin's interior is only 7 ft X 12 ft!

We are on the edge of the middle of nowhere.

Our back-to-the-basics 'Shipping Container Bunkhouse' is actually constructed from a shipping container and is designed for one, but two can stay if someone wants to sleep on the couch below the bed. Note: The twin size bed is standard length, NOT an extra long!! Taller folks might want to sleep on the longer couch below OR book our other listing, 'The Garden Shed' which has a king size bed. A picnic table is next to the cabin. A composting/vault toilet is located several yards from the cabin, and we provide a shower tent. It is up to the guest to provide their own camping-shower bag.

We interact with guests as much or as little as they desire. If the vault toilet and outdoor shower are a little too primitive, you are welcome to use our 3/4 bath in the house. We have house cats and dogs, but we keep the dogs separated from our guests.

About the neighbourhood
We are an hour more-or-less from most Black Hills destinations including Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Mammoth Site, Wind Cave and Custer State Park. We are 20 minutes from Jewel Cave, 90 minutes from Rapid City, SD, and 90 minutes from Devil's Tower, Wyoming.
What we lack in modern amenities we try to make up with western hospitality.
Note: If you decide to book, please pay careful attention to the directions we will then give you for getting here; don't rely on GPS or online map programs. As one guest aptly stated, 'GPS is speculative at best in this area, and dangerous at worst.' You could end up 40 miles away in a different county...
Getting around
You must have your own vehicle. The nearest towns are Newcastle, Wyoming, which is 16 miles away and Custer, South Dakota, which is 28 miles in the opposite direction. The closest large town is Rapid City, SD, 80 miles away.

How to get there
Airport: Rapid City Regional Airport: 130.0 km
When you book, I will contact you with specific information on how to get to our place to the tenth of a mile. It is imperative that you follow these directions and do not rely on GPS or other online mapping programs. It has been said that 'In this neck of the woods, GPS is at best speculative and at worst, dangerous.' People have been known to end up 40 miles away in a different county because of GPS!! :-)
