Custer cabin description

My property is called Elk Valley because it is located on a secluded ridge 100 yards from the Black Hills National Forest. I have a small valley or meadow where Elk, Deer and Wild Turkey live. The Elk come in from the National Forest and water at my pond about 75 yards behind my large 3500 sq ft 'cabin.' A private service road connects the house and land to Elk Valley Road, which is right off of SD Hwy 89 or 'Sylvan Lake Road' a historic Hwy that continues up to Sylvan Lake Lodge, Crazy Horse Monument and Mount Rushmore.

Mount Rushmore is 20 minutes from Elk Valley, Crazy Horse monument is only 5 minutes away. Elk Valley is a magnificent place, secluded yet minutes away from Custer and easy to locate. Mornings are especially beautiful at this unique place which has a spiritual quality.

Notes:

My rates during the school year are only $250 per night.

I accept credit card or checks. It is not necessary to send me a money order or cashiers check. I prefer a personal check (if I trust you with Elk Valley, I trust you to write me a check) In order to book in advance, 50% deposit is required and the remaining 50% 30 days prior to arrival. A $200 damage deposit for less than a week and $300 for more than a week which is refunded within five days

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am 58 years old, semi-retired, two adult children. I graduated from O'Gorman HS in 1973, Univ. of Notre Dame in 1977, and USD School of Law in 1983; I love spending time in Custer, South Dakota at Elk Valley, it has a spiritual aspect to it that can only be experienced by going there.

Why the Owner Chose Custer:
It was built to be my retirement home where I can keep my horses. Custer County is the most beautiful county in the Black Hills--and that means maybe in South Dakota. It is a tourist town of 2,000 people that services the entire USA and still remaims small and where you want to move to and either retire or raise a family. Custer has 12 churches.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
It is near everything in the Black Hills; It is comfy, restful, and the land is as beautiful as it gets; I have an exercise room, a steam shower, foosball, pingpong, outdoor activities, just about anything you want to do-like camping or making a bonfire in the back yard.
