About Mark or Margaret VanDerWerff

We built our dream vacation home to share with family and friends in 2001. As South Dakota natives, we have roots in the Black Hills (Sturgis and Rapid City), but live in eastern SD, near Mitchell. Our family (children & grandchildren) have created many memories in this cabin...and we hope you'll create your own family treasures. May your time here strengthen the bonds of friend and family, and bless you with rest and relaxation.

Mark or Margaret VanDerWerff purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Mark or Margaret VanDerWerff chose Black Hills

We love the Black an active outdoor family, the decision to have a home on Terry Peak was an easy one. We do it all: including skiing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, hiking, sledding, fishing, golfing...the list is pretty long, actually. For all these reasons and more, we love our cabin in the Hills.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is set apart because of its unique floor plan. We saw a lot of cabins before we decided on this special property. With 3 bedrooms on separate floors (and each with its own full bathroom) we can give our guests and family the private space (and quiet) that they deserve when vacationing. We also have a private lot, with no neighbors on 3 sides. Love that!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house for a multi family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the Dutch Retreat! It was a great little reunion weekend for my in-laws 40th anniversary and the house had everything we needed. The kids loved the hot tub and the adults loved quiet morning walks in the hills looking for deer and other wildlife! The internet wasn't the best on our devices but that's not the point of vacation. The kitchen was well stocked and we never needed anything all weekend. One note - if you're picky about pillows, bring your own, the ones in our room with the day bed were in sad shape but otherwise everything was great!

Perfect for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini-reunion of siblings(5 adults) and youngsters who thoroughly enjoyed this property. It was clean, spacious and in a nice location. We had a minor glitch with the hot tub and the owners were responsive and immediately helpful to remedy the situation. We were pleased with our experience and would definitely use again. Thank you Margaret and Mark!
