About Lee Ann

Rich and Lee Ann own and manage the Double Diamond Ranch. We raise quarter horses so it is fun for our guests to see, pet, and visit our horses. We love meeting the guests from all around the world that stay with us. We are both South Dakota natives although we lived in other states with Rich's career. We hope you decide to stay at the Double Diamond…our location is great and we will try our best to be sure you have the absolute best stay in the Black Hills!

Why Lee Ann chose Mount Rushmore

We fell in love with our property in 1998 when we decided we would be moving back to the Black Hills. The two creeks, views and wildlife were big factors and being close to the lakes, Hill City, Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park were big influences on us too. We also love the weather in the Central Hills. We don't get the heavy snowfall that the northern Hills experiences.

What makes this cabin unique

Our ranch is a beautiful destination that our guests adore. The views are spectacular and of course our horses that are romping around in the pasture are an added bonus. Every year we have a couple new baby foals and guests especially love watching those babies! The two creeks feed into Sheridan Lake which is just 1 mile from our ranch. There is great fishing at the lake and a great swimming beach. The two creeks offer very good fishing too. We also have lots of space for taking hikes/walks and visiting the horses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for a great stay! We loved the cabin and enjoyed Thanksgiving.

Troutman family of 16

  • 5 of 5

We were a big family of 16 which included our children and grandchildren and we stayed in Spring Creek and Cadillac cowboy cabins and they were both perfectt for our week long stay.The owners left many things for the children to do and the yard space is absolutely beautiful - the home itself was perfect and had so many special amenities. Our master suite in Spring Creek was so lovely and the living area and kitchen provided us everything we needed to have a memorable week together. Location great… Kids love going over to see the horses and we could easily walk between the two homes. Loved the patio and the hot tub. We took off every day to enjoy all the area had to offer - Sylvan lake, Mount Rushmore, Keystone, the fun little town of Hill City, and Rapid City! So much to see and do in this area. We will definitely be back! Thank you Rich and Leanne…

Beautiful cabin, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the DD cabin. It definitely lived up to our expectations. The decorating is beautiful, the photos are very accurate. The hot tub at the cabin was extremely clean and easy to use. Check in and out was seamless and we didn't need a thing. I would recommend this for families and large groups, there are two bedrooms with queen beds and the loft has three beds (I think one queen and two doubles). The loft is great and has lots of windows, kids really liked sleeping up there. The location is fantastic, close to everything we wanted to see but still quiet at night. There are other cabins nearby, so you're not isolated, but there is plenty of space to feel you have privacy.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with family - four adults and four children - three generations. It was a lovely place to stay, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything a family needs. The younger grandkids would run down to the pastture each morning to say hello to the horses. Grandaughter, Shelby, was so sad to leave her 'special' horse and the stuffed bear in the cabin. Great location and really close to monuments, Custer National Park and other attractions. Just up the road (385) is a local restaurant with the best burgers (Sugar Shack). We saw hail the size of golfballs, lots of rolling thunder (motorcycles) and great natural beauty. You can't go wrong by staying here! Only downside was that wifi was iffy - but could have been due to the storms. But heck, we were on vacation so we got over it.

Aspen Suite was spacious, nicely decorated, and well appointed. It was the best place we stayed during our South Dakota vacation! The suite was immaculately clean. The couch and beds were very comfortable. Host were very friendly and helpful. We were able to see bighorn sheep, deer, horses & mountain stream all from the hot tub! Would recommend to anyone visiting the black hills.
