"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."

"We started planning our Christmas reunion and my husband's 80th birthday celebration almost a full year ahead of time, with families arriving from CO, S.D. and N.C. Since we were a group of 27, this was the perfect house for us!!! There was plenty of room so we never felt 'over-crowded' at any time! The beds were very comfortable and the kids loved the bunk beds! The décor was especially a pleasure and we appreciated the Christmas trees as an added amenity! The kitchen is large and the two ovens and dishwashers especially came in handy for our Christmas dinner! The pool table got lots of use, as the whole family took part in our 'pool tournament', and everyone enjoyed time in the hot tub, even with the two feet of snow that fell while we were there! The views from the home are spectacular--we took our family picture on the spacious deck with the beautiful Black Hills in the background. Jarrod was very accommodating with any questions and also allowed us to check in early as we arrived in the Hills earlier than expected. Our whole family thanks you for sharing your lovely home and the everlasting memories our family made during our week long stay. We would highly recommend this home if wanting a special vacation in the beautiful Black Hills!"

"Our extended family chose this location for our family Christmas get together. We had 17 people and 2 babies, people ranging from 82 (my dad), to young 20's, teenagers, 2yrs, 10 months! All had great accommodations, we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, and it was easy to access even in winter. Singing Christmas carols around the fireplace in the living area, sledding down the hills nearby, serving meals easily out of the spacious kitchen all created great Christmas memories for our family! Highly recommended!"

"This was perfect for our family reunion. It is beautiful and it was clean. There wasn't Internet available. Couldn't get one of DVD players to work, but there were several so that didn't matter. Those were the only negatives we were able to find--it was exceptional for our needs. We were fortunate to book here as we were late reserving. The pictures don't show it off well enough. I would keep going, but if I rave too much, I may not get to reserve it again!"
