                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are a family that has hospitality in our blood. I was raised in a family resort setting in Northern Minnesota and fully understand and desire to give a great guest expierinece here in Custer. We fell in love with South Dakota and the Black Hills 6 years ago while on a family road trip. We had stayed on this property and the rest as they say is history.

                      Why the Owner Chose Custer:
                      We love the convenience that Custer has to offer. We originally vacationed in more remote settings but really loved the proximity to all the must see/must do's the Hills has to offer. On a short stay this location makes more of them possible....oh, and the ablity to get items that we forgot at the store etc.. The Winston also allows for larger parties to vacation together when combined with 'The Brick House' (VRBO 360873), a 4BR/2Bath located adjacent to the property.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Clean, Comfortable, Cozy and CloseCloseClose to Everything!
