About Property Manager
The Hynes family has owned the cabin since it was built in 1925. It was the first cabin on what we consider to be the most beautiful valley in the Black Hills.
Property Manager purchased this Cabin in 1925
Why Property Manager chose Hill City
The Black Hills are a serene, beautiful retreat for our family. Despite tourist attractions, the Black Hills are a tranquil getaway for anyone seeking refuge from their stressful work lives. There is a sense of majesty and history to the Black Hills, including both Old West and Native American culture, that is unique to the Hills. You will find your senses reawaken to the smell of ponderosa pine and wildflowers. There are wonderful activities for the tourist, the nature lover, the hiker, the fisherman, the hunter, the historian, and the geologist.
What makes this Cabin unique
All guests have full access to the KOA Palmer Gulch, including access to multiple family activities, including swimming pools, minigolf, water slide, giant playground, basketball court, and much more.

Amazing Family Getaway!
When you go on vacation one of the great unknowns is where you will call "home" for the next few days. Will it be clean? Will it be big enough? Will the kids find something to do and overall, will this be a good experience? Well Hynes Cabin is absolutely perfect! We are a large family (7) with small kids and we had plenty of room! The views were absolutely amazing. The horse run in the evenings was a unique experience for all, not to mention all the amenities of the KOA (rock climbing, pools, hot tubs, food, horseback riding, putt-putt, water slide, etc.). This is a rustic cabin close to all the attractions of the area and with plenty to do if you choose to stay put for a day! Highly recommended!
Home away from home
Love this cabin so much that we want to keep it a secret, so we can be sure the dates we want to return are available in the future. You can't beat the view and the pleasure of watching the horses come down from the pasture to the KOA campground in the morning and return in the evening. It is secluded enough to remain peaceful, yet you have the luxury of using the KOA pools and activities. The screened in porch is where we spent most of our time. The cool breeze keeps the porch comfortable all day. If you close up the main part of the cabin in the morning, it stays cool all day. We didn't want to leave and are ready to book again next year.
Hynes Cabin is great!
Our family of five including three kids (8,11,14) loved the Hynes cabin experience. Proximity to Hill City, Rushmore and Custer State Park is perfect. Location adjacent to KAO campground is great- we had access to everything - pools. laundry, store, horseback riding but cabin is situated for maximum privacy. The Cabin is unique- we spent hours on the porch playing games, reading and contemplating the next part of the road trip. The views from the porch of Harney peak, the valley and the 30-40 horses only magnified the great experience we had at Hynes Cabin. We would book this location again in a heartbeat. Very relaxing!
The cabin itself is the perfect summer cabin of your dreams, which is rarely found anymore. It does get chilly at night, sleeping on the porch, but there are ample blankets and quilts provided and snuggling in was part of the fun. The family loved the cabin, the kids loved the access to the KOA amenities (the waterslide, the pools, the pancakes, the horses). All in all, I couldn't have hoped for a better base for our family. Would definitely recommend!
Wow, nothing else to say. My wife and I were so happy with the whole Black Hills experience, starting with Hynes Cabin. The view is unbelievable. The cabin was just as the pics show. The kitchen had everything we needed. We grilled steaks and sat by the fire after sight seeing. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Centrally located to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial. You can't go wrong.
Unique Historic Cabin
This cabin wasn't just a place to stay during our Black Hills vacation, it was an amazing part of our vacation. It's perfect imperfections were the product of history and time. Other places try to mimic this feel, but this place is the real deal. If you stay here I hope you will take the time to read it's history and look around and see exactly what those who built it in 1924 saw. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked several meals there. The views from this cabin were spectacular both during the day as well as at night. We were disconnected from technology, but were close to the KOA in the event that there was an emergency. The early morning gathering of the horses got us up and going and we enjoyed watching them graze in the evenings along with an occasional deer. The view of Harney Peak was so tempting that we made the trek to the top one afternoon. The cabin's location was perfect for seeing Mr. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Needles Hwy, Sylvan Lake and several caves. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The photos accurately represented this property and the owner was great at communicating. We really felt at home and special staying here.
