About Rita Chapman
We bought this vacation home in 2012 so our daughter would be closer to school. We have loved being in the community of Hill City. Everything is within walking distance. We are avid cyclists and the mountain biking and road riding are wonderful. We own Happy Trails Cabins in Silver City and have run a cabin rental business since 1995. We live in Silver City in the summer taking care of our 5 cabins. Both of us are from Rapid City and love the activities the Black Hills have to offer.
Rita Chapman purchased this House in 2012
Why Rita Chapman chose Hill City
We bought this property because, though we love Silver City (where we have lived since 1995), we wanted to be closer to the amenities of a city. The groceries, post office, library, school are within 3/4 of a mile from the Hill City Home. We love the private yard with views across the valley of the surrounding ridges. We even have a great view of Harney Peak in the distance.
What makes this House unique
We have always loved homes with personality. This wonderfully kept up home has the unique personality of the late 1800's. The stairs are narrower than modern ones and a bit steeper. We do not recommend this home to those with difficulty negotiating stairs.

All the bedrooms were upstairs & the stairs were narrow & steep. My mom (85) stayed with us & decided she would prefer sleeping on the couch which was large & comfortable.
We loved the well stocked kitchen. All the appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher, gas range) were newer & they had everything we needed (coffee maker, water kettle, plenty of dishes, pans, etc). The grill was excellent.
The hardwood floors were beautiful & furniture was very nice. The bed we had was comfortable.
We enjoyed being in Hill City. We did day trips to Sheridan Lake, Nemo, Mt. Rushmore, Spearfish Canyon & it was a perfect central location.
Clean, comfortable and well equipped.
Great central location.
Great Owner and Great House
It was quick and easy to coordinate with Rita. When we arrived (early) we were allowed access and found the house clean and tidy. The house is beautiful and has tons of character. Parking was right in front and always available. I would definitely rent again if I am in the area.
Cute old house...well kept. Beds not the most comfortable and downstairs bathroom were only complaints.
Fantastic location. The house was spotless. Everything was very easy.
A very pleasant home away from home
We had four great days at this property in Hill City. It was so much better than staying in a hotel. Each of our kids had their own space and having one bedroom be a walk-through to the other wasn't an issue at all. The master bedroom was separate and comfortable. AC doesn't reach the upper level, but there are fans in each room that were adequate (though it should be noted that we had unseasonably cool temperatures that week). The stairs to the upper level are narrow, but it wasn't a problem for us. My youngest (7) was a bit skeptical on seeing that it was an older house, but he wound up loving it. The downstairs was very comfortable for the four of us and the kitchen had everything we needed. The location was perfect for us. Hill City was a short walk away and we walked into town several times. It was a great home base for day trips to Custer, Hot Springs, Spearfish, Devil's Tower and more. The house has a great perch overlooking the city and a nice outside table that we enjoyed a couple times. Highly recommended!
The 1885 Hill City Home is 1 block off Main St. in Hill City. It sits on a hillside with a wonderful view of the Hill City valley. Close to the unique shops and restaurants that put Hill City on the map. Within a close walk to the historic 1880 Train, Black Hills Institute of Geological Research and the Mickelson Trail.
