Loved this town home! We had a group of 10 of us and we never felt cramped. Love the set-up, decor, and especially the view of the mountains and Boulder Canyon Golf Course!

The house is large and modern with a nice deck. A few problems:

- The Trundle bed shown on pictures was not in the house

-we were provided with an incorrect code to get into house

-electrical problems part of a day

-extra fees for cleaning, processing, and damage protection

not enough wash cloths so I went to Shopko and bought some.

South Dakota is beautiful in June! This townhome is in a lovely community.

  • 4 of 5

Our family - total of 9 (6 - adult married kids, 1 teenage granddaughter and us) live in 2 different states so we choose a state to visit one week a year to get together and spend quality time. South Dakota was our pick this year. Since there are nine of us, we always need lots of space, bedrooms and baths - this place fit us nicely. We went to Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse (an hour and half drive each way), hiked to Harney Peak (also hour and half each way). Fun fact: National Treasure the lake scene was filmed at Sylvan lake at Harney Peak. Deadwood was 20 minutes - fun to walk around and have lunch. Another fun thing - Jewel Cave and horseback riding. Truly enjoyed our time in South Dakota.

The town home is lovely, and for the most part was clean, when I notified them of a few issues I did receive a prompt response. We enjoyed our stay, had plenty of space, we did not feel cramped at all. We cooked our breakfasts and dinners most days which was wonderful, but since the dishware is melamine we needed to wash these by hand as these did not fit in the top rack of dishwasher - and we did not want to damage them.

The hot tub was nice, the views pretty and it was a nice area to tale a walk or jog. It was nice having the ability to put our vehicles in the garage - especially since we had a thunderstorm occur one night.

There were a couple of things to note: as there were 9 of us, planning showers is a must - as someone invariably had to take a cold shower (it seemed 2.5 showers were what was doable before water was cold). We tended to split shower time - some at night, some in morning - a few got up extra early to be sure they had warm water... but it was was doable. I would say this and the dishware were the only things that I would hope they would change - doing dishes on vacation not the ideal but again, not the end of the world.

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfy! We had an issue with the hot tub so we called the owner, and we got an immediate response. They sent someone out quickly, and it was fixed so we could enjoy it!
