'Mountain Crest', a beautifully hand-hewn, non-smoking, authentic log cabin. It occupies five acres on a mountain top, about six miles northwest of Deadwood, off county-maintained, Maitland road, the 'backdoor’ road to Spearfish, SD. The cabin offers a large parking area suitable for multiple vehicles. it is a great location to come together with friends, entertain visitors, conduct family reunions, etc.
Secluded, with dual access, well-maintained roads, this cabin works well to enjoy winter sports, delightful spring and summer activities, or to just 'escape' and 're-charge' one's self.
(Attention Snow Mobilers: Mountain Crest enjoys abundant snow fall. Given its relatively secluded location and being adjacent to national forest land and trails, it is ideally suited to have fun playing in the snow. Where else can one drive their snow mobile up to their front door?)
This unique log cabin can be a romantic getaway or a great location for enjoyable get togethers with friends or family. It is very clean and well maintained and offers guests complete privacy.
The cabin provides excellent support to its guests. While delightfully secluded, there will always be guest support available to assist and answer area questions.
Why the Owner Chose Deadwood... Since the Air Force assigned me to South Dakota in the late 80's, I have loved the Black Hills. The are always open and accessible (public land), safe (no bears), and the people here are so very friendly and welcoming. They appreciate visitors. The northern 'hills' are especially beautiful and have so much history and fun things to do. I very much enjoy my stays at Mountain Crest. I take great interest in making sure my visitors are able to enjoy and appreciate it as much as I do.
The special appeal of this cabin... I bought 'Mountain Crest' in 2005, a dream come true. The trees that grew on my mountain top are still there. They repose as a part of this handmade log cabin. Watching eagles soar, deer graze, chipmunks play, or turkeys strutting is something I always yearned to be able to do. You can too, by simply sitting on the veranda or looking out of the kitchen window. I love having the freedom to adventure out and not come across barbed wire limitations.

These communities also offer the traditional services one might expect, including parks, recreation centers, libraries, restaurants, grocery stores, etc.
