About Kim and Marcia Benning

We are Vacation Home and Cabin managers with Heart of the Hills Vacation Homes in Hill City. We own several of the cabins on our roster including this cabin and have 4 of our personally owned cabins listed with VRBO.

Why Kim and Marcia Benning chose Hill City

This property is located contingent to our personal home property and by buying it, we were able to protect our home land property from developers who would sub divide in to small tracts and lots of houses. We have preserved the forest within a town!

Old Town Cottage: Nestled on a forested hillside on the edge of Hill City
average rating of 4.7727275 based on 22 reviews

First look, impressive, we relaxed and enjoyed the weekend.

  • 4 of 5

The only problem encountered was a sulfur smell from the water. Morning shower was difficult. I informed the Heart of the Hills office. After running 2 full water heater tanks down the drain, the smell went away.

Owner's Response: This guest did stay in one of our properties, but not this property. Unfortunately he wrote a review for the wrong rental! But I chose to publish the review anyway to let future guests know that if they encounter any issues during a stay, we are prompt to resolve issues. This cabin is on city water so it does not have high mineral content and future guests should not worry about an odor to the hot water. Marcia

Old Town Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying at the Old Town Cottage and we enjoyed it just as much as the first year. The cottage is tucked away so you feel like you have a lot of privacy, yet it is an easy walk downtown or to the grocery store. It is fun to watch the deer in the back yard and the hot tub is great after a day of hiking. Hill City is a wonderful place to stay with great stores and it is close to so many things in the Black Hills. We highly recommend this cabin.

Excellent location and cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much - the cabin was clean and cozy. The location was great - we really enjoyed being close enough to downtown Hill City so we could walk to restaurants. The staff was very proactive and helpful. We will stay again!

Owner's Response: Becky, thank you for taking the time to write this review for the Old Town Cottage. The location really is ideal! While it sits up on a hill, surrounded by trees to provide a quiet sanctuary, it is SO CLOSE (walking distance) to Hill City's Main Street. We always promise clean and comfortable. We invite you back and others to come visit the "Heart of the Hills".....whether you stay with us or choose another location, Hill City is the BEST place to base your travel! Sincerely, Marcia Benning

A Home in the Heart of the Hills

We loved the Old Town Cottage and we had a fantastic time in the Black Hills. The vacation was even better than we thought it would be.

Labor Day Fun

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here over the Labor Day weekend. It was very clean and well maintained. The location was perfect. The garage was one reason we rented this house as we drive our Boss 302 Mustang to Sturgis for a Mustang Rally. We hope to be back again. Maybe next year.
