Peaceful Haven in the Black Hills
Whitetail Springs Ranch offers a superb location for exploring the southern hills of the beautiful Black Hills. The ranch is in a quiet, rural setting with acres of heavily forested, rocky land surrounded by US Forest lands. Let the music of birdsong, buzzing field insects & yelping coyotes accompany your morning coffee or soothe your spirit after a long day.
Best of all, the ranch is very close to two jewel-in-the-crown parks, amazing Custer State Park and scenic Wind Cave National Park. In fact, the ranch is near to just about everything one may wish to experience in the Black Hills.
The little friendly town of Custer is a short distance from the ranch. There are some excellent restaurants in town (Skogen, Sage Creek Grille and Maria’s food truck were three favorite repeat eateries). Also, there are several very nice shops, an artisans' co-op gallery and a full service grocer in town.
Excellent trails are nearby. Whether you choose the Mickelson Trail, the Centennial Trail or the loads of trails in Custer SP and Wind Cave NP one can hike for many miles! Plus there are abundant Forest Svc roads (basically two lane dirt tracks through beautiful granite-studded forested back country) within walking distance of the ranch house where one can walk to one’s content. I particularly enjoyed having the Forest Service back roads nearby for days when time was short and I simply wanted to walk miles without getting in the car to drive to a trailhead. Even the quiet scenic road on which Whitetail Springs Ranch is situated is gorgeous and not very trafficked, perfect for walking.
Views are fantastic from the ranch house porch. Stretching over 180 degrees from east to west, one has an uninterrupted view of the sky with distant granite peaks providing visual impact. Sunrises, sunsets and storm watching can be incredible with panoramic views. Dark skies at night offer excellent stargazing.
Whitetail Springs Ranch is very roomy. In addition to the three bedrooms there is comfortable seating in the common rooms. If you read in bed or prefer to read or work on a project (knitting, playing cards or whatever) I suggest bringing a portable book reading light (for instance, I never travel without a headlamp) as lighting tends to be on the dim side throughout the house. WiFi is fast. A television offers a full range of channels to view.
Our second stay within a year’s time, many thanks to host Jody for your hospitality! Highly recommended!
Just outside of city and quiet but minutes away from town and local sites. Loved the patio. Patio was great for breakfast and dinner.
Great family vacation
Great week with so much to do! Really enjoyed the log cabin feel and the beautiful property. It was equipped with everything we needed. Kids were bummed that the pinball machine did not work but they enjoyed the jukebox. Everything we did was within 30 minutes or closer. The owner Jody was very responsive and easy to work with. Gave us great recommendations. Thanks for sharing your beautiful property, we made so many great memories!
This cabin was all it said it would be and more! It is a beautiful place and the surrounding acreage is gorgeous. Cabin was very clean and close to all of the activities in the area. Jody was very friendly and made sure check in was easy and called to check on us after flash flooding in the area closed the main road down for the evening. My family can't wait to return and rent this fabulous listing again!
Thanks for the kind words and glad you had a great time at the cabin and can tell adventure stories of navigating around the flash flood in downtown Custer. What a way to start a vacation!
The great escape
