About Linda

We moved to the Black Hills over 29 years ago and loved it ever since. We started out with a B & B and naturally drifted into the vacation home rental business. With my husband's background in carpentry and masonry and mine in the hospitality business and love of decorating we worked together to create homes we felt would appeal to the travelers to this area.

Why Linda chose Hill City

We liked the country setting and thought it would be a great location for a vacation home.

What makes this house unique

This house is large enough for an extended family or a group of friends getting together for a special occasion or just a vacation away from everyday life. It is a home away from home and equipped with all the things you need for a comfortable stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful place to stay. Very clean and convenient. We really loved setting on the deck and the view. Comfortable beds also. We will tell all our friends.

Exceptional Black Hills Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding with other family members. This Black Hills home was clean, comfortable and stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The 2 level design was perfect for our family that gave us opportunity for both togetherness and privacy. Linda and Dennis were very welcoming and accommodating during our stay and was happy to give us suggestions for local restaurants and attractions. We especially enjoyed the food at the Alpine Inn for both dinner and lunch while we were there.

We will definitely come back again and highly recommend this gem in the hills to all our friends and family.

Very nice home for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 in our group and wanted to do some ATV riding. The house was great, big rooms so we could hang together, nice amenities, soaps, t tissue, napkins... all things that make it easier to stay. We were able to wash our dirty clothes and cook meals with the great kitchen set up. We would definitely come back! Thanks for all the little things that made our trip fun!

Great Home for a larger group

  • 5 of 5

8 of us visited South Dakota to ride our bikes on the Mickelson Trail. This home is adjacent to the trail making access a breeze. Really neat decor that matches the location. Clean and tidy with plenty of room for a large group. Linda was super - she helped us settle in and gave us all the info we needed for our stay in the Black Hills. Would recommend this home to any large group/family who wants to enjoy the Black Hills of South Dakota.
