It is part of ten acres that is completely surrounded by Federal forested land. A stream is on the property. This is the ideal property for hiking, hunting, relaxation and ATVing.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your return stay at the Lone Spruce Ranch. We have several repeat guests who enjoy this location for their ATV and hunting experiences. For others considering this rental, we provide all the linens, towels, dishes, small appliances and there are plenty of supplies left for our guests so it isn't necessary to purchase paper products, etc. We invite others to experience the quiet nights and mountain surroundings and hope to see all of our repeat guests again and again.

Awesome vacation cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely AMAZING stay at your cabin. It was everything we hoped for and more! Really appreciated the water cooler as we weren't accustomed to the water in this area.

The beds were so comfortable! Plenty of room for the four of us. Recommendations to future renters - I would bring a griddle if you are a big breakfast family, for cooking french toast, pancakes, eggs, bacon, etc. That is the one thing we didn't think to bring. There are plenty of utensils and skillets, and bowls to store and mix in, I think we just eat a lot. :) We did bring a crockpot and roaster to get our meals ready in the mornings, and then go out and ride horses and enjoy the area all day. It worked well for us. I would suggest getting your groceries as you go through Hill City before you head to the cabin. It is a jaunt the first time. After that, you get used to the drive.

Note there is no cell or wi-fi unless you drive 20 miles into town. The owners let you know that ahead of time. There is a house phone, but be sure to bring a calling card (we didn't think of that) because you can't call long distance (home) without it.

We had the opportunity to meet a few locals, and the vet up the road, as they were out our way looking for cattle. We had a great time riding our horses, and best of all, having the area completely to ourselves, to get away from the world. Plan to stay again! Marcia Benning is an excellent host - very responsive and friendly. I would definitely recommend this cabin without any reservations.

Perfect Oasis in the Black Hills

  • 4 of 5

It was SO nice to get away and disconnect from the world for a few days! No cell service, no WiFi, and clean mountain air. We went trail riding on our 4wheelers every day and enjoyed the most beautiful Mountain views! The cabin was in need of a few small repairs but overall it was a wonderful experience!

The Lone Spruce Ranch is the ultimate place to get away from it all! Located on 10 privately owned acres completely surrounded by the gorgeous Black Hills National Forest. You are completely secluded yet within a 40 minute drive to most major attractions. Our repeat guests love this location because of the privacy and serenity it offers. Plan your day trips to the attractions and come back to the Lone Spruce Ranch to relax, unwind, enjoy family time, and the night stars! Perfect for repeat guests that just want to get away and enjoy the hills, lakes, wildlife, and possibly a trip to the village of Rochford to enjoy a burger and a beer at the Historic Moonshine Gulch Saloon.
