Get In Contact
Welcome to the Dry Creek Hideaway! We are so excited to have you stay with us. Rest, relax and connect with nature when you stay with us. Dry Creek Hideaway is at the end of the road in the rolling hills on the edge of the Badlands of western North Dakota. You can feel like you are miles from nowhere, yet only 15 minutes from most amenities. You are nestled in the middle of a North Dakota working cattle ranch.
Dry Creek Hideaway is owned and operated by Donnie and Trisha Feiring and their two daughters, Harley and Taylor. The Feiring’s raise Angus cattle, raise and direct market Feiring’s Grass-fed Beef, raise pastured broilers and have free range, pastured laying hens.
We want you to feel like you are at home. Open the cabinets, drawers and closets to find what you need. Please enjoy some of the handmade touches that we offer in our space. The nightstands in the queen bedroom, handmade table runners, dish scrubbies, dish clothes, and crocheted blankets. We love offering this personal touch.
History – This beautiful log home was built by Charles and Glenna Mastel along with their three children Karen, Karla and Kevin. The floorplans for the home were designed by Charles Mastel. The Mastel family starting digging the basement in October of 1974. They lived in original one bedroom house on the ranch while building the log house. The original house burned shortly after they moved into the basement of the log house. They lived in the basement of the log home for several years before completing the upstairs. A permit was purchased from the US Department of Agriculture Forest Service in Bozeman, MT to harvest the logs to use for the upstairs of the home. They were then transported to the Mastel farmstead by Timer Jones. Much of the work on the logs was done with a chainsaw. The upper level was completed in the spring of 1979.
The building in the middle of the yard we call "The Grainery". In the past, it was used to store grain for the cattle, sheep and horses. In the future, we plan to convert it to another cabin that will host guests.
