Property description

Cabin is located on a mountain meadow surrounded by the Black Hills forest with Battle Creek running through the property. Cabin has 2 bedrooms, each with 1 queen bed, futon/sofa sleeper in the living room, fully furnished kitchen, & bathroom with tub/shower combo.
Enjoy relaxing on the deck while BBQing, watching the children play on the playground, trying your luck at gold panning in the creek, or making S'mores over the firepit as you watch the stars come out. Wake up to deer right outside your bedroom window & start your day with a brief hike up to Ingersol mine just 1 mile away from your front door to view a piece of Black Hills history. Discover more with the Walking Tour of Historic Keystone. Spend your days sightseeing at Mt. Rushmore, drive through the scenic Needles Highway, hike to the top of Harney Peak, or explore one of the many underground wonders including Rushmore Cave, Wind Cave, Sitting Bull Crystal Cave, or Jewel Cave. View live Bison in Custer State Park, drive through wildlife park at Bear Country USA, & view the largest private collection of reptiles, including Maniac, the largest captive crocodile in North America at Reptile Gardens & then return to a quiet evening back at the cabin, just 15 minutes from most major attractions in the Black Hills.
Come see why we've been blessed to call the Black Hills home & want to share it with you! Thanks,

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a small family owned & operated business specializing in offering personal, friendly service. We own a vacation rental business as well as a towing business in the area because we want to be able to be home when our 3 boys get off the bus, we want to be able to play & work together, & we want to raise our children with strong ethics which included hard work & playing in the great outdoors!! Our love for God, country, & family is why we do what we do & at the heart of our business. We've been blessed to call the Black Hills home & would love to share it with you. We'd love to have you stay with us, JAROD, BECKI, AUSTIN, CODY & KYLE

Why the Owner Chose Keystone, SD, USA:
Becki's family is originally from Keystone. She has relatives that helped pioneer the town as well as help carve Mt. Rushmore. Jarod's family is from the Wall & Kadoka, South Dakota, the Badlands area. Beside Mt. Rushmore being the National Monument, Keystone is full of living history of the miner era that once made the town thrive. The Black Hills is also full of geological history & a favorite for rock hunters, which we are, & rock climbers, which we aren't:). The small hometown atmosphere of the Black Hills as well as the many diverse sites & attractions makes this the perfect place to make memories for a lifetime, again & again.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Hiking right out the front door, driving through the Pigtail Bridges, making S'mores over an open fire, playing tag with the kids in the backyard, 5 minutes to Mt. Rushmore, cliff-jumping at Horsethief Lake, looking through unique shops in Keystone, going on a cave tour, laying on the grass & looking up at the stars, rock collecting, fishing at Lakota Lake, swimming at Little Falls, exploring Ingersol mine, playing at the city park in Keystone, participating in small town parades & events, enjoying being together with our family.
