Enjoy your coffee in the morning or evening gatherings on the deck or in the HOT TUB made private by the wooded lots adjoining. Tin Mill Cottage is conveniently located on a hillside overlooking the town of Hill City, just a few minutes walk to the downtown area. Tin Mill Cottage is a short walk to nearby Major Lake for fishing.

Remodeled in 2008, this has become a favorite cabin for families seeking an affordable stay in the Black Hills. The two bedrooms with queen beds each and a futon in the living room with an electric fireplace accommodates 6 comfortably. There is one bathroom with tub and shower, laundry, AC wall units and cable TV as well as wireless internet access. The fully furnished kitchen (with dishwasher) and gas grill on the deck helps keep your vacation affordable by allowing meals to be made 'at home'. However, there are many nearby restaurants for those who are 'truly on vacation'!

A car port affords shaded parking for two vehicles.

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

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay in the Black Hills and a big part of that was this cabin we rented. The place was VERY clean, well laid out, nicely stocked with everything we could need and conveniently located for all of our site seeing - the pictures don't do it justice! It was great to be able to eat most meals at "home" instead of having to eat out all the time and the hot tub was a wonderful way to relax at the end of the day! It was fun seeing deer/turkeys in the yard. They really thought of everything from the directions on how to get to the office to check-in, the supplies in the cabin including fans and extra pillows to some information on the attractions/things to do. Every part of our stay with them was hassle free! We can't wait to come back and are eager to rent this place again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for this great review! We hope you can return again soon! So many guests tell us how much they enjoyed their stay....but we are really pleased when guests tell other potential guests about this nice little vacation spot! It is amazing that so much wildlife abounds literally on the edge of the Hill City (City) limits! Right now, guests are enjoying the marvel of the spotted fawns with their mothers carefully guarding them. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the wild turkey chicks. We try to do our best to make your stay easy and hassle free! Our staff is very accommodating from our office manager to housekeeping to maintenance....we are just a phone call away should you need any assistance! Marcia
