Property description

***************************************************************
January, 2016

Prospective Guests:

We want to “thank you” for accessing our VRBO listing and for considering booking the Cottage at Reausaw Lake (i.e. the Cottage). During your search for Black Hills accommodations, please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information.

We are the owners and, also, the property managers of the Cottage. In this capacity, we are able to give our guests individual attention. Our priority is to offer a vacation rental that is comfortable, cozy, clean and complete, at a competitive rate. Additionally, we continually strive to make Cottage improvements, such as a recent patio expansion and a partial kitchen remodel, to better accommodate our guests.

The value a business offers can quite often be measured by repeat customers. During 2015, we booked eight (8), repeat customers for a total of fifty-nine (59) nights! It makes us proud, and we are humbled, to know that our past guests have had such a positive, Cottage experience. (NOTE: For 2015, our total bookings equaled one-hundred, twenty-five (125) nights. So, almost 50% of our business came from repeat customers.)

We, again, “thank you” for considering the Cottage and we look forward to serving you.

PS. And, for you repeat customers, we "thank you" for your business AND your friendship!

Doug & Denise Miller

IMPORTANT: We believe our guests should get the best VALUE for their vacation dollars. This means the BEST in accommodations for the BEST available price! Therefore, we offer you the following: You may be aware that VRBO started charging a Service Fee of 4% to 10%, starting February 1, 2016. For the Cottage, this Service Fee has been averaging approximately $75.00/booking. This Fee is charged to YOU, the guest, when you book online, primarily through the "Book it Now" option. If you decide to book with us and want to avoid this Service Fee, WE are willing to do some extra work, if YOU are willing to do some extra work. We can book the Cottage by using an electronic process with you mailing us payment in the form of a personal check, Cashier's check, etc. If you elect to go this route, please give us a call at 605-578-1102. NOTE: There is nothing "wrong" with avoiding the VRBO Service Fee, OR we would not offer you this alternative. We presently pay VRBO a $400.00 annual fee, for the Cottage posting on their Web site. The Service Fee is only charged if you, the guest, elect to utilize the convenience, etc. of using VRBO's additional booking option....the use of a credit card and the "Book it Now" feature.

DESCRIPTION: THE COTTAGE AT REAUSAW LAKE

Private, quiet and chocked full of diversity!! Enjoy outdoor activities in a poisonous-snake-and-wood-tick-free environment! Enjoy all types of bird and wildlife viewing, including turkey, deer and elk. This rental offers a magnificent location for the outdoor enthusiast, yet, is centrally located for easy access to all Black Hills attractions. Rapid City is 30 miles, Deadwood is 15 miles and Sturgis is 25 miles. Essentially all Black Hills attractions are located within a one-hour drive. Located on 80-privately-owned acres, the Cottage offers convenient access to the Black Hills National Forest…..a one-million-acre, public playground for your outdoor enjoyment! (Did we mention that the Cottage's location offers no rattlesnakes and no ticks?!! Yes, way!)

Explore the diversity of the Black Hills from your backyard!! Summertime activities include all types of recreational activities…..mountain biking via the 111-mile Centennial Trail (eight miles from the Cottage), “easy” bicycling / hiking for all ages and abilities via the 109-mile Mickelson Trail (eleven miles from the Cottage), four-wheeling via the extensive Black Hills road system and, of course, hiking, camping and fishing. Would you like to fish? We will supply the fishing equipment! The Black Hills has an extensive lake and stream system, however, Reausaw Lake is only 100 yards away. This small lake is owned by the South Dakota Game & Fish Department and stocked with trout for excellent catching success….especially enjoyable for the young angler! Or, our adult, fly-fishing guests can supply their own fly-fishing gear and have access to a private pond with hungry trout (catch and release, please)!

Wintertime activities are endless! Downhill skiing and snowboarding are thirty minutes away at the Terry Peak and Mystic Miner at Deer Mountain ski areas. Most of the Black Hills is open to off-road snowmobiling, or access to 350-miles of groomed trails is a ten-minute drive away. How about a family sledding outing? Sleds and a toboggan are available for onsite use. Further, let’s not forget that the Black Hills is excellent for snowshoeing and cross country skiing activities.

AND, most importantly, the owners of the Cottage, Doug & Denise Miller, will do everything they can to make your stay completely enjoyable! The Miller residence is located ¼ mile from the Cottage. This close proximity allows the Millers to personally meet their guests and to be readily accessible should guests need individual and immediate attention. The Millers believe in customer service and will do all they can to make your stay an enjoyable one.

The Millers are looking forward to meeting you!

PS. Please feel free to contact us via phone or email. However, when contacting us via phone, first, please call our home phone (605-578-1102) and, if no answer, leave a message.

NOTE: For larger groups, please be aware that the Cottage only has one (1) shower / tub.

FYI: The Cottage at Reausaw Lake is licensed as a Vacation Home with the State of South Dakota. License number 60350.
