  • Great Cabin

    "We stayed with friends for the first few days, then on our own for the next five. Awesome wildlife, hiking, and so close to sightseeing!"

  • Everything we hoped for and more

    "From the moment we walked in the door, it was apparent that we had chosen wisely in selecting the Black Hills Sanctuary - Couple's Cabin. It immediately met all of our expectations. Warm, cozy, comfortable and welcoming -- it looks like a place you could enjoy for a week or more. We are halfway through our first week in the Black Hills, and coming back here each day after visiting sites in the area is truly enjoyable. It feels like home. The kitchen is spacious and provides ample room for food prep and eating at the counter. The bedroom [and bed] are quite comfortable, and each night has been very relaxing. For those who don't want to totally unplug, the cabin has wifi and cable tv. The cabin is quite close to all of the things a first time visitor would want [Custer State Park, Mt Rushmore, an abundance of hiking, and good food]. I couldn't recommend this place more . . . and we will certainly return."

    "Such a beautiful little cabin! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - away from the tourists, beautiful view of the lake and breathtaking layers of stars at night! Owners were great to work with, very responsive! Highly recommend and would definitely return."

  • The Perfect Place in the Perfect Place

    "Imagine a fun-packed day experiencing all the Black Hills has to offer and then coming "home" to a peaceful, quiet, serene setting built in the middle of whispering ponderosas. That's what you'll experience in Bruce's home in the foothills of Rapid City. The home has everything (and then some) to make your stay just what you wanted. The property adjoins government land so you can use that in addition to the spacious yard. We enjoyed nightly fire pit gatherings, watching the deer and wild turkeys come and go. We had 3 children in our group of nine and they had ample room to explore and use their imaginations inventing games in the yard. I personally enjoyed the hammock when the down-slope winds would kick in early in the evening. The younger crowd enjoyed relaxing in the large and immaculately clean hot tub. Bruce's house has everything you would need and is as neat as a pin: ample towels; lots of cooking utensils; an indoor/outdoor music system; washer and dryer/ and enough maps and local information to make sure you see what you want to see. Bruce is currently enlarging his home, but the construction doesn't affect your stay whatsoever. It will be amazing when he finishes it I'm sure. Speaking of Bruce, he is the nicest and kindest person to deal with. He's as honest as the day is long, and will ensure everything is done right. We checked in with his manager, Lindsey, who was also incredible. She met us to check us in and showed us all the ropes. She also returned to check us out. The home was perfect for three couples and three children. Privacy was never an issue and everyone had his/her own space. You owe it to yourselves to stay here because I frankly will remember the family times we spent in the cabin more so than some of the things we did in the area."

Black Hills Travel Tips

Lose Your Heart to the Black Hills of Dakota

Two words sum up the Black Hills region of South Dakota--awe inspiring! The abundance of wide open space, breathtaking views and fascinating history, combine with the many options for day trips and year-round activities, making this place a wonderful vacation location. Visitors to Black Hills cabins may find the regional airport at Rapid City a convenient option. However, the region provides excellent roads with interstates such as I-90 and many state highways.

The Black Hills area has long, hot, dry summers and winters with lots of great snow for a variety of winter sports and activities.

The Black Hills are Full of Awe-Inspiring Scenery

Whatever time of year, the Black Hills offer endless activities along with the awe-inspiring scenery. Whether it’s the hiking, biking, golf, climbing, ATV tours, or hunting, it is all here, right outside the doorsteps of Black Hills vacation rentals. During winter, come for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and much more.

Whenever visitors come, it is the scenery that makes the Black Hills special. From visiting Mount Rushmore, the Devils Tower, forests, Sylvan Lake and the Badlands National Park to seeing the still-in-construction Crazy Horse Monument, it is a region of breathtaking beauty. In Custer State Park, spend a morning hiking, then stop for a picnic and watch the buffalo as they roam across their land. You can also see prairie dogs at play and wild horses.

While visitors enjoy the incredible activities and scenery that surrounds them, there is another not-to-be-missed experience beneath their feet. This region is rich in caves to explore, with equally incredible sights, such as Thunderhead Underground falls where an enormous subterranean waterfall awaits the adventurous visitor.

The Black Hills Area for a Home Where the Buffalo Roam

Black Hills vacation rentals in towns here are part of American history. The main city is Rapid City which is an excellent base for trout fishing. It is also a great place to visit the Dinosaur Park where prehistoric creatures are scattered along the skyline. Dating from 1875 and surrounded by thick Ponderosa Pine forests, Custer City is the oldest city in the region. This city is perfect as a starting point for mountain bikers and hikers to access the trails in Custer State Park. The famous city of Deadwood is also a national historic landmark, with its historic buildings, saloons and museums. Here, the western tradition of shoot-outs still remains, although now it is just for show. While here, visit the graves of the Wild West heroes such as Wild Bill and Calamity Jane at Mount Moriah Cemetery and pan for gold at one of the local mines.

Homes Where the Kids can be Cowboys

These Black Hills lodging options are all about quality. Whether visitors are seeking a town base or one out in the heart of the wilderness, you can find it here. Whether it is a large property with a bunkhouse for the kids or a small, cozy romantic hideaway, visitors will find a great selection of fantastic properties. Each is unique and not just equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay, but much more. Owners go more than the extra mile to ensure that visitors find luxurious surroundings to make their vacations extra special. Many welcome dogs. Even visitors seeking to bring their horses on vacation will find a variety of rentals come with stabling capabilities.
