Walk the forested trails along Cobb Creek to the overlooks for panoramas of the prairie coteau landscape. This property includes a charming country home, lodge with meeting facilities, and 2 guest cabins.
Cobb Creek is a Northern Glaciated Plains Coolwater stream that meanders from west to east through the property. The stream is characterized by large granite boulders. The deep pools and shallow, rocky riffles provide habitat for native prairie stream fishes. Gary Creek, located just 3 miles north of the property is home to the only naturally reproducing population of brown trout in eastern South Dakota. These streams are fed by groundwater that flows from the prairie coteau, also known as Buffalo Ridge. There are several paths providing easy access to the creek for wading and micro fishing. Shallow prairie streams like Cobb Creek are the perfect playground for children to explore the natural world, collect rocks, catch insects, fish, frogs, and salamanders, and the sounds of the water splashing over the rocks are soothing and peaceful for adults needing a retreat from their busy lives.
The property is platted into a homesite on the western boundary and the expansive valley to the east. The homesite includes the house and paved driveway entrance to the property. The valley includes the wooded creek and a large grassland area on the south side of the property. There also is an opportunity to parcel off and sell a homesite along the western boundary. Utilities including rural water, electricity, internet, and private septic systems are already in place throughout the property and buildings. Mature bur oak and cottonwood trees line the valley walls and create ideal edge habitat for whitetail deer hunting. Approximately 22 acres are enrolled in income-generating CRP along the southern property boundary. The valley floor has several openings and canopied areas that are ideal for hosting events, camping, or future wildlife food plot sites.
