Great rental, close to everything that the area has to offer. Spacious home with a large deck.

The view of the Black Hills is amazing. We were visited by deer and turkey every day. The rental has everything that is needed. The large wrap around deck was used a lot. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in the area.

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Moonshine Lodge. We liked the layout of the house and really enjoyed having the four bedrooms. The kitchen was awesome and had everything we needed for making meals. We had beautiful weather while staying here, so we spent a lot of time on the deck chit-chatting, reading and enjoying the view. The house was centrally located for everything we did, which cut down on our travel time. It's a beautiful area and home! We'll be back.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

My extended family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home has wonderful amenities in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed exploring the sites during the day and cooking gourmet meals at night. The kitchen is well suited to several chefs with two sinks and tons of space, plus a great grill on the deck. The owner is very responsive and it was an awesome experience start to finish.
