Property description

This modern cedar-sided home offers comfort and convenience, but it is the peaceful, secluded aura that makes it hard to leave. Nestled into the hills, we are bordered by Forest Service land, which offers endless hiking opportunities. The breeze whistling in the pines truly induces peace and relaxation. The outdoor patio and deck space around the home invite family time or individual rest.

The home, built in 2002, has two levels, with the upper floor including a large master bedroom with glass doors leading to the back deck, large full bathroom, fully stocked kitchen, large family room and dining area. The lower level holds two bedrooms with queen beds, a full bathroom, laundry area, and large family/game room with a wood-burning stove. Five sliding glass doors and large windows offering beautiful views of the Hills are located throughout the home. Spacious rooms give every guest privacy, yet create openness for group activity.

Fully Stocked Kitchen: Guests are welcome to use the modern conveniences of a gas grill, dishwasher, refrigerator, electric stove, coffee-maker, and microwave. Cupboards are stocked with popular seasonings and staples such as coffee, flour and sugar. Cooking utensils, dinnerware, and silverware are all supplied in quantity.

An electric washer and dryer are available for guest usage in the lower level of the home.

Extra Comforts: Each bedroom features a newer queen-size mattress and its own thermostat for individual control. The home has electric heat, and with the shade of the surrounding pines, is very comfortable all summer.

Car: Necessary

The heart of the Black Hills is at your fingertips with this vacation get-away. Centrally located between Rapid City, Hill City, and Deadwood, this secluded home in the pines gives you the feeling of being immersed in the Black Hills. At Pactola Drive you have the best of several worlds. You are within five miles of Pactola Lake, the largest recreational lake in the Black Hills. There are several hiking trails within walking distance. The main attractions in the Black Hills for all ages are within 35 miles. Family activities include Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Mountain, Reptile Gardens, caves to explore, a water park, horseback riding, Flinstone Village, and chuck wagon dinners. Adults can find local wineries, and the exciting nightlife of Deadwood. Throughout the summer you will find festivals and activities to meet any vacation need. And if you came here to relax, the outdoor patio and deck are the perfect place for peace and quiet! One word of caution - if you want to along a main highway, this home is not for you. We are off the highway 4 miles, along a well-maintained scenic gravel road.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: We live on a farm/ranch about 180 mi. SE our vacation home. We love to get away to the Black Hills, and feel a natural pull to the area. I (Kari) work for South Dakota State University in Community Development. We enjoy spending time with grandkids and family, fishing, and hiking. Our roots are deep in agriculture, with Rick's ranch being in his family over 100 years.

Why Rapid City:
Simple - we LOVE the area and the home, and want to share it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are in the true beauty of the Black Hills. Wildlife comes up to the door and in the late summer cattle are around due to open grazing in the National Forest.
