Property description

Map Ranch is 2 miles from Custer and 2 miles from the West entrance to Custer State Park. The Mickelson Trail runs along the front edge of our Ranch for all those bicycle riders, hikers, or horse trail riders. There is plenty of space for parking. The back property line gives access to the Black Hills National Forest. We have 2 covered enclosures for Horses and large fenced pasture adjacent to the house with fenced boundary right next to the house. Please check out the pictures.
Our home has a fully equipped kitchen with an island - Great for cooking and visiting at the same time. There is a spacious covered deck with wonderful scenic views-plenty of deer, turkey, squirrel and other wildlife. The master has a king size bed, a jetted tub and new five foot separate shower. We're located 10 minutes from Crazy Horse - Mount Rushmore is about 25 minutes away - Rapid City is 42 miles. There is so much to offer here in the Black Hills you will not have time to do it all. But you can have a great time trying !

Additional Information: For more pictures and a little more detail please visit our personal Web site www.map-ranch.com. We think it will be worth it. Thank you for looking.

Custer State Park W. entrance is 1.5 miles from MAP Ranch on Highway 16A. In late September early Oct. the Park every year has The Buffalo Round-Up that has become a world class event. Horse back riders round up the Buffalo herd to check and cull the Buffalo. This is a chance to see how it is/ was in real life. There are many caves in the Black Hills to see and explore. National Parks - Wind Cave and beautiful Jewel Cave are close. Hot Springs - South through Custer State Park, has a Wild horse refuge and Mammouth - newly discovered fossils in the 1990's of Sabor Tooth Tigers, Mammoths and other fossilized ancient animals. The Mickelson Trail is at the entrance to the ranch - following it via bicycles, hiking or by horse you can see and enjoy a step back into quiet 100 year old history. Of course we can not forget Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and the 1880's Train. There is something for everyone. We love it here and think you will too. Come enjoy our home check out MAP-Ranch.com.

Other Activities: Our guests may Pan for gold in French Creek on our property. We have several 'pans' for our guests to use.

Golf: Custer has a local golf course and Hot Springs has a good course, too.

There are just so many things to see and do - you won't be able to do it all, but you are welcome to try!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We started coming to the Black Hills in 1996 when we were traveling in our RV - fell in love and kept coming back. We moved here full time in 2003. Mike is from S. Illinois and Anita grew up, mostly, in W. Texas.

Why the Owner Chose Custer:
We live just over the mountain from MAP Ranch. We love this area and this property because of it's location and the creek. MAP-Ranch is just a great location to do just about everything in the Black Hills. When we first started coming to the Black Hills we just fell in love with the Southern part and the Custer area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view from the large covered front deck is just terrific along with the location being 'just perfect' are the two top things our guests comment on year after year. If you would like to have an up close personal look at Miniature Herefords - you'll come to the right place!
