A Fantastic Stay!
A Fantastic Stay!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hynes cabin, it was more than we hoped for and exceeded our expectations! The photos online are very accurate, the interior is a bit smaller than we thought it would be, but we were hardly in the living room, since almost all of our time at the cabbing was spent on the wonderful porch! The porch was both living room, dining room and bedroom, and large enough for our family of 5 to all be out there and not be on-top of each other. We loved sleeping outside on the porch, the woolen blankets for extra warmth are a nice touch. The view of the mountain and the pasture below was stunning - we saw lots of deer at dusk. A bonus was watching the horses and horse wranglers each morning and evening, when the horses were taken to and from the pasture. The property is located within the KOA campsite, set off a bit by itself. It is a very nice KOA, with a pancake breakfast if you choose and a great swimming pool as well as other activities you can participate in when you stay at the cabin. We went on the horse ride and found the price to be a good value compared to the horse-riding prices we later encountered in the Jackson Hole area. We have rented vacation rentals pretty extensively and can truly say that the Hynes cabin stands out amongst them and is special-- its one of our favorites! About the only negative was the driveway down to the cabin, it was short and treacherous, especially after 8 hours of driving! After the one time of taking the van down it, we left the van on the top of the driveway and walked to and from the cabin. This was not a big deal, unless you have trouble walking up/down small steep hills. Thanks for sharing your wonderful cabin!

Our family of 5 loved the cabin. It was exactly as listed in the description and shown in the photos, a rustic cabin with all the comforts of home. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. It provided a relaxing start to our mornings and ending to our day when the in-between times were filled with sight seeing. We spend both of these times on the screened in sleeping porch enjoying the view and fresh air. The amenities of the adjacent KOA campground provided evening entertainment for our children ages 12, 10, and 6.

Our family had a fabulous vacation in the Black Hills. This cabin was perfect in all ways. Exceptionally clean, well stocked and in a great location with terrific views. We enjoyed the amenities of the KOA campsite - great for families with young children. The children loved the sleeping porch and watching the horses being rounded up in the evenings. We hiked to Harney's Peak, toured Mt. Rushmore, went horseback riding at Rocking R Ranch, visited the Wind Cave and Jewel Cave and explored Custer State Park. Everything was very convenient to the cabin. Thanks for a wonderful stay and a great vacation! We will definitely recommend this cabin to our friends!

We just returned from a stay at this cabin with our four children. Our children range in age from 5 to 14 and everyone had a wonderful time! There are many activities to choose from and the cabin is even stocked with a few games if there is a rainy day. The cabin was stocked with everything you need. I would recommend this cabin!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this cabin over the weekend and loved every minute of it! The pictures of the cabin were very accurace. There was plenty of place, it was immaculate, and had all the conveniences of home. I loved it that it was stocked with dishes, including pots and pans. We grilled on the bbq grill and did alot of relaxing. There are many places in the area to hike, and close to attractions. I would stay here again and highly recommend it. Thanks for the wonderful stay

We had an incredible time in the Hills and the Hynes Cabin was at the heart of that experience. It is a charming cabin with real history and warmth to it. We loved waking up on the sleeping porch to the views of Harney Peak and the smell of the pine trees. It was a great jumping off point for any activities in the Hills, since it is so centrally located. I loved just reading on the porch, too. I would definitely recommend the cabin to anyone who wants to travel to the hills.

Year Purchased: 1925
About: The Hynes family has owned the cabin since it was built in 1925. It was the first cabin on what we consider to be the most beautiful valley in the Black Hills.
Why Hill City:
The Black Hills are a serene, beautiful retreat for our family. Despite tourist attractions, the Black Hills are a tranquil getaway for anyone seeking refuge from their stressful work lives. There is a sense of majesty and history to the Black Hills, including both Old West and Native American culture, that is unique to the Hills. You will find your senses reawaken to the smell of ponderosa pine and wildflowers. There are wonderful activities for the tourist, the nature lover, the hiker, the fisherman, the hunter, the historian, and the geologist.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
All guests have full access to the KOA Palmer Gulch, including access to multiple family activities, including swimming pools, minigolf, water slide, giant playground, basketball court, and much more.
