Nice setting. Close to most of the sights. Lots of wildlife near by. We enjoyed the hot tub and being able to grill out for some of our meals

Beautiful home! It was exactly like the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

The home & property were very nice. Everything was well kept & clean. We are a family of 5, there was more than enough room. Everyone enjoyed our stay. The home is in a nice location, only a few minutes from town yet close to a nice gas station/restaurant where everyone were very friendly & the food was great & cost friendly.

There were also deer that came close throughout the day. I would recommend staying here & look forward to the next time we travel in that direction again!

Owner's Response: Shannon, Thanks for the 5 star review and for mentioning the home is exactly as pictured on our web site. The owners have worked hard to provide great amenities and our housekeepers work hard to keep things in tip top shape. Repeat guests are our "best friends" so we hope you are planning a return visit soon. Marcia Benning, Residential Rental Agent Heart of the Hills Vacation Homes

was nice but i feel a little overpriced for the offseason

Owner's Response: Kathryn, We advertise one price in the off season ($225 per night) as the maximum occupancy for this rental is for 10 people. I understand that for your group of three people it may have been higher in price than some of our other smaller rentals. However, if you consider this price for the many times we rent it out to large groups, I hope you would agree the price is fair. Marcia Benning, Residential Rental Agent

Clean, bright and very enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Spring Break with two adults and five kids, ranging in age from 15-3. There was plenty of room for everyone! Beds were very comfortable. Cabin was very well stocked with supplies. We enjoyed the hot tub at the perfect temperature every night. Staff came to check the hot tub every day. This cabin was centrally located to everything we wanted to do: Mt. Rushmore, Badlands, Wind Cave, Custer, Mammoth Site and all of local town attractions. We had a great time!

Great facility. Did miss WiFi.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you did not use the WiFi while at the Lariat. I am not sure if you missed finding the password or if you had a problem accessing the internet. We are always just one phone call away to resolve any problems. Our fees are direct costs to us (not the owner) and actually do not cover the entire cost of housekeeping, but it does help offset those costs. Rather than penalize others who wish to stay extended days with a higher nightly rate, we charge the one time cleaning fee for any length of stay. We are glad you stayed. Marcia
