About Kim or Marcia Benning or Kari, Office Manager

Being from South Dakota, we have always appreciated all that the Black Hills offers tourists and now as home owners. Hill City has become our favorite part of the Black Hills and truly is the 'Heart of the Hills'. We enjoy hiking in the forest and Harney Peak, taking our jeep for a ride, fishing, visiting with friends, and of course the daily visits from deer and turkeys. We hope you consider Marshall Gulch Getaway for your vacation home. Thanks for looking!

Great family getaway in the offseason

  • 5 of 5

The place was fantastic for a family with kids. Great terrain around for some hiking and a bench along the hillside to see Harney Peak. The house was well stocked but had some minor issues with housekeeping - nothing that would prevent us from coming back.

I loved how the house was within proximity of Deadwood, Rapid City, Hill City, Keystone, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, Sylvan Lake, Badlands, National Caves, scenic drives (wild life loop, Iron Mountain, etc.) etc. Also, there is a vibrant scene with breweries and wineries. Lastly, Mickelson bike trail is nearby but the time of year and weather would not allow us to hit the trail.

Around the house, we saw deer and my wife became a professional turkey caller. It was nice to grill out, the hot tub was a plus and outdoor fire place was great to sit around for some drinks. Looking at stars on clear nights was spectacular.

It was great that the Easter Bunny made a stop on Easter and later took the family hiking to Harney Peak - a story that my family will remind me forever on how I almost got them killed on a holiday.

Overall, my family and I had a very memorable and fun vacation over Spring Break and enjoyed staying at the house.

The dates we were here were in March 2013-I'm a little late getting my review in! :)

We travelled to Hill City with 3 Adults and 3 kids.

The adults loved sitting on the porch and listening to the absolute stillness, and star gazing!

The kids loved hiking all over the property, and checking in with us over their walkies!

The HOTTUB was a hit!

The wildlife is RIGHT outside the WINDOW!!!

This home was perfectly stocked and will not disappoint!

We really look forward to coming back for another visit!

Best Black Hills Cabin Rental - Couples or Family

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute get away for my wife and I. Amazing location, it seems like a mile away from even the local road. But is only minutes away from Hill City. Very quiet. Hot Tub. Fireplace. Privacy. Bring your own firewood, because it has a REAL fireplace! Internet, TV, yet good cell phone reception too. Perfect for two. Enough room for many more. This Cabin exceeded even our high expectations. We will return here with our family next time! Thank you to the owners and managers for an incredible offering!

Owner's Response: "This Cabin exceeded even our high expectations" is a common response we hear from our many guests who discover Marshall Gulch Getaway for the first time. Many guests tell us we don't do justice to the cabin through our description or photos....we hope the words of our guests who are willing to write these generous reviews will suffice. The cabin is cozy enough and priced right in the off season for just two people. It can sleep a family of up to 6 (we recommend the sleeper sofa for children.) We do provide a starter supply of firewood on the deck for fall and winter guests and more split pieces can be purchased locally. Thank you for writing this helpful review. We will look forward to having you return! Marcia/management

Family Christmas Time: Memories Made!!

  • 5 of 5

Sitting here at HOME this week after Christmas, we were reminiscing about LAST year at this time...wishing we had rented this cabin again over Christmas break! Last year, we had decided to take our 3 children on a little mini get-away between Christmas and New Years. Usually our vacations involve sun, sand and water but this time we opted for snow, sleds and hot chocolate....and there were NO REGRETS!! We planned for an 'old-fashioned' time of memory making...revolving around sledding down the great hill off to the side of this beautiful cabin, walking into town surrounded by the newly fallen snow, UNO and hot chocolate by the fireplace, climbing the rocky landscape behind the cabin, following the creek looking for deer, and hot tubbing in the silence of the star-filled night. Our electronics have never taken such a long rest!!! We couldn't have been more pleased by our stay in the wonderful Log Cabin HOME. We would LOVE to go back again and would DEFINITELY recommend it to our friends! So the beaten path....peaceful....beautiful....

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I went there for a getaway from work for a week. It is amazing. Hot tub, BBQ grill, great decor in the cabin, comfortable name it, it was all great. This place couldn't be easier to rent from, everything was as stated. I am planning on going back every year, great place to clear the mind from work. Highly recommend to everyone!

Beautiful Cabin, Perfect Location, 5+ Stars

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an incredible family trip to the Black Hills area. MGG was the PERFECT cabin for our family! The cabin was spotless, well maintained and showed obvious signs of owner pride. My oldest daughter even commented to me how much pride the owners must take in their cabin. The beds were super comfortable and the cabin was well stocked with all of the furnishings, bedding, blankets, towels, firewood, etc. we could possibly need. It was clear to us that a lot of thought was put into making the cabin enjoyable for guests. The outside of the cabin was equally great with plenty of room for our children to play, run, explore and have fun. Additionally, the views cannot be beat. We enjoyed the town of Hill City as it offered some unique shopping and dining options. Also, it is centrally located to the areas we traveled to including Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cabin - truly top notch in all areas!!!
