Great time with friends

  • 5 of 5

Being Three couples that enjoy traveling together, we loved it. It was great to have 3 floors, each having a bedroom and bath. The deck off the livingroom has a beauty view, so relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Being at the top of the hill, we were able to walk in the morning, without worrying about traffic. It was so much nicer than staying at a motel, would love to do it again next year if the house is still available.

Excellent place. Will stay here again if in the area.

  • 5 of 5

We came to the area to ride motorcycles and found the place to be perfect. Loads of room and the view was great. Couldn't have asked for a better place. The garage was a plus to keep the bikes in at night.

Unfortunately, our stay at this property was very disappointing. The beds were uncomfortable. The bedding seemed very old and perhaps needed a good wash. The downstairs we couldn't use due to the mildewy smell. The kitchen was not set up well in regards to kitchenware. There were dead bugs all over the house. To top it off, the neighbor told us to stay off of the upper deck due to safety issues. The owners were told to replace it. Quite honestly, it was the worst VRBO I have ever stayed. The only saving grace was the view. If only we could have used the deck...

Owner's Response: How disappointing to receive this review. I hope it has nothing to do with the fact that we would not allow a cancellation less than a month out and that the “neighbor” was a relation to the renter that does not get along with the owner of the property. We take pride in maintaining a “clean” and “quality” place for vacationers to relax and have fun. As you can see all our previous reviews have been 5 stars. Top of the Hill is a lovely home with great accommodations, nice bedding and a full kitchen that is well stocked with dishes and kitchenware and nice appliances. The decks on both levels are sturdy and safe and it is disheartening that a person would say different. We could have assured the renter of this had they called anytime during their 3 night stay with any concerns or complaints.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time during our stay. The house was in great condition and we had no problems during our visit. I would recommend the house to anyone looking for a place to stay while in the Black Hills.

Magnificent !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home during our 3rd Sturgis Rally and by far this was the BEST !! This home is located atop a hill with a beautiful view. The owners have kept this place very well maintained. We stayed in the downstairs apartment while the owners were upstairs and they gave us complete privacy. The pictures are very accurate regarding the description. I would highly recommend this home, and should we return to the area, we will see if this home is available again !! You won't regret staying here. Thank you Barb and Ed for allowing us to enjoy a little piece of your heaven !!!!
