What can I say. Very relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

Hot tub was my selling point and it didn't dissapppoint. It was a girls get a away vacation with wine and beautiful fall views. I found on home away from homes website. I hope to use again. Clean and close to Hill City and very accessible. Only gave 4 stars cause water pressure in shower could have given it a 5 star. Very pleased other wise.

Wonderful lodging and great people

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin for over two weeks, and completely enjoyed the location, the people and especially the owners. Everybody in the office was extremely helpful, answered all our questions and were able to get us in a week early when other plans fell through. We were able to visit all the sights, enjoy the "Mangy Moose" and felt like we were home. If life allows us, we will be back next year.

Just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation staying at this house. The location was close to all the major sites we wanted to see. I was impressed with how stocked the kitchen and bathrooms were. The kitchen provided all the things we needed to have a few meals in the cabin instead of going out to eat all the time. We really enjoyed the wildlife we could view from the deck in the morning and evening.

We are 2 couples who are empty nesters looking for a fun week away and this helped make it a great adventure.

We will definitely come back to stay at the Tin Mill Cottage.

Great place for a family

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this home. It was close enough to attractions and parks. There was plenty of room for our family of six. We utilized the grill and hot tub many times. It was very clean and well stocked with supplies.

Owner's Response: As this guest suggests, the cabin is in a perfect location: Centrally located in the Black Hills and on the edge of the city limits of Hill City....yet it has the feel of the country with the Black Hills Forest in its back yard! We appreciate the nice review. Our housekeepers work hard to make every guest's stay enjoyable. The hot tub is maintained daily and the grill mentioned is brand new! We hope this guest will visit us again and refer your friends and relatives! Marcia
