Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Both of us have lived in South Dakota since we were 12 and our daughter has lived here all her life.  We raced bicycles (on and off road) for 10 years before settling in Silver City. Tally has participated in the Race Across America - finishing twice and Rita was an Expert Cross Country National Champion in Mountain Biking. Both of us have numerous state championships in our divisions for both road racing and mountain biking. This history of traveling, racing and hosting other poor cyclists at our home influenced us in our purchase of Tallys' fathers cabin business. It has suited us tremendously, we love to meet people and help them have a memorable vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Silver City, SD, USA:
We would love to share our little slice of heaven in Silver City with anyone in need of a place to “get away from it all”.  

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There are unlimited activities available in the Black Hills from kayaking, inner tubing down the creek, rock climbing, cross country or downhill skiing, hunting, running, geocaching, fishing, it is up to your imagination. We love being outdoors.  Mountain biking, running and hiking are our favorite activities in Silver City.  Tally is the mountain biking trail expert and Rita has the running trails dialed in. If you are not too fast we may even join you. We have a garden, weeding is always available for those interested. Ask for information anytime.  By the end of July the raspberries are getting ripe and the season continues through 3rd week of August. It is not hard to find a wild patch.
