"We spent a whole week in this perfect cabin while we visited in the Black Hills. The cabin is located close to some of the most spectacular scenery of the Black Hills--namely, Custer State Park, Black Hills National Forest, Black Elk Wilderness, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, George S. Mickleson Bicycle Trail, the Centennial Trail, Hill City's 1880 Train Depot and Museum, Wind Cave National Park, Jewel Cave National Monument, the Badlands and more! Even the drive to Spearfish Canyon and Rapid City was not that far away either! We hiked and biked for six full days. We rode from Hill City to Mystic on our bikes on the most rural and scenic section of the Mickleson Bicycle Trail. We rode the 1880 train from Hill City to Keystone. We hiked most of the trails in Custer State Park including to the very top of the Little Devil's Tower, Harney's Peak, the Sunday Gulch, the Cathedral Spires, Sylvan Lake, and Stockade Lake--also including driving routes of the Iron Mountain Road, Needles Road, and the Wildlife Loop. We toured Wind Cave and hiked there too. We visited Crazy Horse and Mount Rushmore, and hiked in the Spearfish Canyon and saw both Bridal Veil and Roughlock Falls. Everyday, it was great each evening to come back to this wonderful, cozy cabin to fix our dinner in its well equipped kitchen. If you don't want to cook, there are lots of great restaurants in the area. Be sure to visit the Miner's Brewery and try their Blue IPA! Also, there are plenty of wineries in the area. This cabin was a comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Even in late July, there was no need for air conditioning! The Black Hills are truly beautiful and if you want to see them, this is the perfect place and location. If the walls could talk, there would be plenty of great stories to tell. We not only experienced the beauty of the Black Hills, we also feel like we experienced some history too by staying in this wonderful CCC cabin. Thank you so much, Teresa, for your hospitality!"
