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 patio expansion / fire-pit installation and a partial kitchen remodel, to better accommodate our guests.

The value a business offers can quite often be measured by repeat customers. In 2017, we booked nine (9), repeat customers for a total of sixty-three (63) nights! This was over 50% of the one-hundred sixteen (116) total nights we booked! Through August, 2018, we have booked six (6) repeat customers for a total of thirty-eight (38) nights. This is a 42%, "repeat nights" rate! It makes us proud, and we are humbled, to know that our past guests have had such a positive, Cottage experience.

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

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 has no poisonous snakes and no ticks and very, very few mosquitoes?!! 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 you can access 350-miles of groomed trails 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. Just look out the Cottage's back door to see our home. 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!

Could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL stay at the Cottage! Everything about The Cottage and Doug and Denise exceeded our expectations. The cottage was well stocked with everything you could possibly need for your vacation and VERY clean. After a long drive it was such a treat to see homemade cookies on the counter for us! Doug and Denise made us feel right at home and we felt like family just after briefly visiting. They are so accommodating and kind. If we needed anything at all they wanted to know, I felt like we were in great hands there. Of course our stay was terrific and the location is fairly close to all areas you'd like to explore whether it's Custer, Rushmore, Deadwood, Spearfish Canyon etc. It is a very peaceful and relaxing home away from home. We'd LOVE to go back again!

The cottage is very homey and has everything you could think of to make your stay better. The owners are very nice and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this cottage and will look into staying here again if we find ourselves going back.

Wonderful Experience/ Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

June 17-21, 2018

We were awed by the beauty of the area with the abundance of plants and animals, but these did not compare to the wonderful cottage that we had for our use while visiting in this area. The cottage was so nice, neat, and pleasant. It far exceeded our expectations. When we arrived, we were greeted by the smell of fresh baked cookies, which, by the way, were amazingly good.

When we had been at the cottage for a day, our hosts came for a visit to see if we needed anything. After talking with them only a few moments, we felt as if we had known them all our lives. We knew that if we did need anything that Doug and Denise would take care of us.

We have stayed in cabins and cottages before, but this was by far the best. We felt safe and comfortable in the home.

Thank you so much, Doug and Denise, for providing a home that made our stay both marvelous and relaxing.

The cottage is a perfect getaway for families wanting a quiet Black Hills experience.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay at the cottage. Our boys, being teenagers, loved sleeping in the loft over the garage and having their own space. The lake,directly across the road, was a hit with our boys to get in a little fishing. It also had plenty of items/games to enjoy the backyard. The owners truly have gone out of their way to provide a clean fun environment in order to relax. I would highly recommend this property for your next Black Hills trip! I know that we’ll be coming back!!
