Can't wait to go back
Can't wait to go back
We had such a wonderful stay in the Black Hills and a big part of that was this cabin we rented. The place was VERY clean, well laid out, nicely stocked with everything we could need and conveniently located for all of our site seeing - the pictures don't do it justice! It was great to be able to eat most meals at "home" instead of having to eat out all the time and the hot tub was a wonderful way to relax at the end of the day! It was fun seeing deer/turkeys in the yard. They really thought of everything from the directions on how to get to the office to check-in, the supplies in the cabin including fans and extra pillows to some information on the attractions/things to do. Every part of our stay with them was hassle free! We can't wait to come back and are eager to rent this place again.

Owner response: Thanks for this great review! We hope you can return again soon! So many guests tell us how much they enjoyed their stay....but we are really pleased when guests tell other potential guests about this nice little vacation spot! It is amazing that so much wildlife abounds literally on the edge of the Hill City (City) limits! Right now, guests are enjoying the marvel of the spotted fawns with their mothers carefully guarding them. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the wild turkey chicks. We try to do our best to make your stay easy and hassle free! Our staff is very accommodating from our office manager to housekeeping to maintenance....we are just a phone call away should you need any assistance! Marcia

This was a great central location for visiting Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and Custer State Park. We also enjoyed riding and watching the 1880's train. Having a washer/dryer, fireplace and hot tub were a real plus and the cabin was clean. It however is sparsely equipped for cooking, with few serving dishes and peeling Teflon pans. The view is the back of a holiday inn and a poorly kept trailer park.

Owner response: Thanks to this guest for mentioning this cabin’s convenient central location. It is close to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Custer State Park and many other major tourist attractions. We appreciate the comments regarding the cleanliness of the rental as well! After this guest departed and before we received the review, our housekeepers returned 2 Teflon pans that were damaged (they appeared to have been used on the grill) and they were not up to our standards! I am sorry that they were not noticed prior to this guest’s stay and have forwarded a personal apology. Had we known about it during their stay, they would have been replaced promptly. We manage 12 other cabins and our office is open 6 days a week. We take calls after hours and respond promptly to guest’s immediate needs. Given the opportunity we are quick to respond to any issues that need attention. Photos of all sides of this cabin’s surroundings are posted on the VRBO web site. Yes, our Tin Mill Cottage does sit on a hillside above and across from the Holiday Inn Express which is a well kept property. Yes, visitors can see the edge of a trailer park in the distance where many of Hill City’s hard working families live and contribute to our community. However, the real “view” from this cabin is from the deck where the patio furniture, grill and hot tub are located. The view is forested and many guests have reported watching wildlife such as deer and turkey which are daily visitors on the property. We hope all our guests enjoy this view from the Tin Mill Cottage. I will be posting a list of everything in the kitchen on VRBO so guests will know if they need to bring additional items or request that we have them available (within reason). Currently, this is what we have in stock: The kitchen is furnished with a coffee pot, toaster, blender, 3 glass baking dishes (13 x9, 8x8 and loaf pan) and glass serving bowls (2 sizes). There are two stainless steel mixing bowls and a hand held mixer. There is also has a crock pot, two fry pans (NOW NEW!) and three other sauce pans including a stock pot for cooking spaghetti. There are a few other miscellaneous pieces in the cupboards. We furnish dishes and silverware for 8. Marcia
Great spot on a hill above town

We recently stayed here for 4 nights and it was fantastic! We loved the fireplace, hot tub and deck. It was the perfect spot for staying in the Black Hills and the cabin (house really!) gave us the convienience of staying at home to cook most of the time, but there are also great places to eat close by. The grocery store was just down the hill and they had a good selection of food. The internet allowed me to catch up on some work things and the staff was awsome to work with when we had trouble with the service. It was quiet, comfortable and warm. One night while grilling, a doe and her two yearling fawns came down the hill to visit us! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We loved our stay at the Tin Mil Cottage it made us feel just like we were at home. It was nice to be able to make breakfast before our busy day of sightseeing. The beds were all comfortable and the whole cottage was very clean. The only suggestion I would have is to have grip bars to get in and out of the tub/shower. The sides of the tub are quite high and being short and not to flexible I was a little nervous getting in and out. Thank you for having such a comfortable and clean vacation home.

This is conveniently located near Hill City's downtown, yet secluded enough that three deer , five turkeys and a bunny roam the lawn. The place was quiet and clean, had WiFi, and a great hot tub which was appreciated after a six mile hike up Harney Peak . As a fellow VRBO member, I can vouch that this two bedroom ranch is a great escape from a busy day of driving and seeing the sights. It was an A+. Steve McCausland -- Brunswick Maine

Had an enjoyable stay at the Tin Mill Cabin. Very comfortable, clean and spacious. this is much nicer than staying in 1 room at a hotel...especially for several nights. Its great to return to a comfortable home after a day of sightseeing. The cabin is in a great location...close to Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Rapid City. We will definitely stay here again. We usually visit Hill City about once a year.
