This is a Great Little House with Rustic yet Modern Charm, Beautiful View of the Cheyenne River Breaks. Wasta is a "very" small town, a gas station with vending machines, a fabulous military museum, a bar that is open Thurs. Fri. and Sat. serving burgers and steaks, family friendly. If your traveling from the east you can get groceries in Wall, if you want to take in the Badlands on yor way, you might drop down through Interior, S.D. and drive through the Badlands then come out just south of Wall,S.D. fyi ...mornings and evenings are best for viewing. I'm very flexible for late check-in. Cedar Pass has a good restaurant, alsoThe park has a great astronomy telescope for stargazers, it gets a little late but worth it especially on a clear night. One of my favorites! When you get to the Rock and Block house it's all yours! Firepit (conditions permiting) grill, games, books etc. A train goes through once or twice a day, sometimes not at all, my apologies for any early or late horn blowing as there is a crossing across the road. We are about 20 miles from the Badlands, 40 miles from Rapid City, and Beautiful Black Hills, 70 miles to Sturgis for the yearly Motorcycle Rally, it's always the first full week in August, one of the largest rally's in the country! Fyi....some like to avoid, I like to give a heads up! All in all....Wasta is a pretty quiet little town with a lot of it's own western beauty, watchout😊it has a way of capturing some of our hearts! Also I will have a one bedroom house plus a sofa sleeper, on the same property that will be ready in the very near future, both houses could be booked together for a larger group, if you choose to stay, I sincerely hope your stay is a pleasant one. Thank You, Your host, Billie Schell

We stayed here for a night in the middle of a cross country road trip and it was just what we needed after a long day of driving. The beds were large and comfortable, the space was clean and welcoming and the fridge was stocked with breakfast items. Great access to The Badlands a…

Comfiest bed I've ever slept in. Place was as I expected- I arrived earlier then I expected due to the time difference from where I was traveling from but Janis was nice about it all. Very friendly host who was available; however, this may be a personal preference but in the 48 h…

This place is amazing. It’s off the beaten path and pretty secluded. I loved it because I came with kids and it was private and we were very comfortable having the whole place to ourselves without worrying about being loud or ourselves. Billie was an amazing hostess bringing us v…

My family stayed here for a night while visiting Badlands National Park and it was a great location. The fridge was stocked with enough for a continental (light) breakfast. Communication was great.

This is such a hidden gem in Wasta. Billie was so accommodating and sweet. Her place exceeded my expectations and I loved the quiet location with beautiful scenery. She recommended a little swimming spot nearby under a train bridge and me and my boys loved it! I definitely recomm…

I really appreciated Billie’s quick responses and hospitality. They were hoping to meet us and welcome us to the area but our stay overlapped with their travels. The cottage was also even more cute and adorable than we expected. I would recommend this place to anyone.
