This is a lovingly refinished 1910-era folk victorian rescued from demolition and relocated to the banks of the Cannonball River near Mott, N.D., near the Badlands, Black Hills and in grassland prairie country. The west view to sunsets is so restful and wildlife abounds on the river.
This is a "saved" property, circa 1920, that was scheduled for demolition and moved to the present location. Every attempt was made to renovate this wonderful property and maintain the existing character of the dwelling _ there are some signs of its age _ chips in the old enamel sink, for example _ but those are part of the charm.
You'll find that you have plenty of privacy, but feel to walk around and stop in a say hello to whoever you meet. The downtown is small, but friendly.
We very much enjoyed our two nights at the cottage. Lauren anticipated our needs and let us know a grocery store in Mott would not be open on Sunday, our arrival day. She suggested the Enchanted Highway which we took and found charming. The Cottage was clean, cheery and well equipped so we ate some meals there. And Lauren left a wonderful bottle of wine for our enjoyment. Highly recommend if you want an out of the way place. It reminded me of the town I grew up in Iowa.
Great communication between us. Loved the campfire ready to go as we got in later than expected. Cottage is very comfortable and quiet.
Our trip was brief but we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very nice, and we particularly enjoyed the amazing stars at night and the silence of the surroundings. Great location for rest and relaxation. Lauren had everything ready for us upon arrival. Great stay!
Listing was accurate. Quiet location about half hour off the freeway. Beautiful setting, cute house. The kids loved it and were able to play outside on the covered porch after a long day in the car. Lauren was quick to respond with needed information and directions.
