Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Cleaning Fee $75
  • Tax Rate 5.5%

Notes:

To reserve the house, we ask for a deposit that is half the rate of total nights. Since we don't take credit cards, we ask for the deposit by check. Once we receive the deposit, we send an invoice with a copy of the check. There will be two additional fees on the invoice: 1) a $75 cleaning fee; and 2) lodging and sales tax of 5.5%. The remaining balance is due upon arrival.


Please wait... Travel with confidence

Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Owner info

About the owner: We live in the Black Hills of South Dakota in a place known as the Stratobowl. This geological wonder is carved from the combined effects of water erosion and the uplift of a fault line in the rugged Spring Creek canyon. Secluded and idyllic, the property is reminiscent of another era. Maybe it is the silence, the old limestone cliffs, or the song of the creek meandering through the seasons. As these ancient voices surround us, we breathe in all the natural beauty. Peace melts into our being and comes out as creative expressions. When the moon is full, the canyon becomes an illuminated, mystical experience. That is why, at one time, this place was named 'Moon Valley'. Then, in 1934 and 1935, the Army Air corps and National Geographic Society launched manned balloon flights into the stratosphere from here. It was then, that the family field aquired its new name of 'The Stratobowl' while becoming the birth place for the space age.
