Custer cabin description

This remodeled log home is charming and comfortable. The cabin sits on over 3 acres bounded by Forrest Service land and 1500 feet from the entrance to Custer State Park. Originally built in 1931, it is situated on a hilltop overlooking Stockade Lake and the entrance to Custer State Park. Years ago, an addition including the kitchen, bath and bedroom, was made to the original cabin. With an eye for details, like over-sized windows in every room and artful woodworking, this addition enhanced the cabins unique character. One of the oversized windows is in the living room where it views Stockade Lake. The Lake looks different every day: The surface of the Lake is smooth and reflective in the morning and glistening in the afternoon. Boaters and colorful kayaks create relaxing views.

The log living room is large (14x24) with two comfortable sofas for lounging. The beauty of the original log work has enhanced over the years. The logs are chinked with buffalo hair. The unique arched fireplace was hand crafted of large, native rock. We recently updated the fireplace with a gas-log insert, so with the flip of a switch, it's easy to enjoy the warmth of a fire on cool evenings. Put your feet up and watch satellite TV on the 35-inch, big-screen, or step out of the living room onto a rock patio, (one of two patios), smell the pine air, relax and enjoy the view of Stockade Lake.

Stockade Lake is very beautiful and much larger than it appears in the picture. Only about 20% of the lake can be viewed from the cabin, the rest of the lake opens up beyond beautiful rock formations. There are fire pits with picnic tables situated next to the waters edge. Take a lunch and fish off the shore or take the kids to the sandy swim beach where there's a play area with swings and slide.
The entrance to Custer State Park is adjacent to the Lake. The Park offers miles of paved highway leading to other lakes, wildlife and wilderness. This is a great place to begin your tour of the Black Hills.

Start your day with coffee in the quaint knotty-pine breakfast room. Wireless internet keeps you connected. There's a TV located next to the dining room table just right for kids who like to watch cartoons while having breakfast. The two windows next to the dining table look out over the tree-studded hilltop. Often, in the early morning and late evening, wild turkey and deer feed around the trees, just outside these windows.

The kitchen has a large garden window over the kitchen sink. You'll find the kitchen is complete with full-size stove and refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and slow cooker. Also furnished are dishes, utensils, pots, pans and other cooking tools such as BBQ utincels and marshmallow roasting tools for the fire pit area. We supply coffee, sugar, salt and pepper and we stock the fridge with bottled water for your arrival. The gas grill is just outside the kitchen door; we provide the propane.

Five guests can sleep comfortably in the cabin. The bedroom is spacious (15x15) with a queen bed, twin bed, and dresser. The living room has a comfortable sleeper sofa just right for falling asleep while watching the big screen TV.

There's a washer and dryer, and the bath has a tub with shower. We provide a minimum of 10 towels and washcloths.

We take pride in caring for the cabin and we want you to enjoy your visit.

We welcome you!
