Have you dreamed of wilderness seclusion and serenity in one of the RAREST LOCATIONS IN THE BLACK HILLS? Do you long to gaze upon buffalo, elk, deer, wild turkey, and other wildlife? Then perhaps this home of rustic elegance, bordered on 3 sides by Custer State Park and National Forest, could be your ideal vacation. Experience a true wilderness environment as there are NO OTHER HOMES within a quarter + mile. Relax on the deck or patio and absorb the scent of pine, feel subtle forest breezes, and view wildlife in their natural habitat. Gaze upon brilliant stars during quiet and calm evenings. Our guests say that pictures do not do the home and environment justice.

Our home is set on a scenic meadow completely surrounded by thousands of acres of Custer State Park and National Forest. No highway noise, nothing but forest, scenery and wildlife around you. Stroll across the meadow or set off by foot into Custer State Park or National Forest wilderness. Excellent road and driveway conditions with easy access provide for a stress free location.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My husband and I have been married for 40 years. Now, as empty nesters, we enjoy the freedom to head for the Black Hills and enjoy the peace and serenity our new home has to offer. It also provides us with memorable family gatherings as we are new grandparents.

Why the Owner Chose Custer:
My husband and I decided to purchase the Custer home because it is bordered on three sides by Custer State Park and national forest. We enjoy hiking and now can explore thousands of acres of wilderness just a few steps from the front door. We also enjoy riding horses in the Black Hills. The pasture borders Custer State Park. We can enjoy hours of riding in the Park and never take the same trail.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When visiting our home, we hope it will be immediately evident the pride and joy we wish to share with our guests. We take suggestions from our guests very seriously and attempt to make our home as comfortable and convenient as possible. Our home borders Custer State Park, so guests enjoy visiting the park and all it has to offer. We are just minutes from the town of Custer, Crazy Horse Memorial, Mt. Rushmore, Sylvan Lake, Wind Cave National Park, and many other popular attractions. Although we are secluded, the roads are excellent.
