About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms on 3/4 of an acre lot in Black Hills Nat. Forest

Our place is your home away from home for families, Sturgis Rally bikers, ATV'ers, and hunters. Our home is located in the beautiful Black Hills National Forest, near Hill City. We are on 3/4 of an acre lot off Deerfield Road, bordered by BLM forest. Wake up, grab a cup of coffee, sit outside and watch the deer (and sometimes wild turkey) roaming the beautiful hills and forest outside. Or, ATV right from our house. A trailhead is very close by.

Just 8 miles from the hidden jewel of Hill City, we are conveniently located only 20 minutes from Mt. Rushmore, the Crazy Horse Monument, Keystone, beautiful, breathtaking Custer State Park (and the breathtaking Needles Highway) and Wind Cave National Park. We are less than an hour from Deadwood, Rapid City, and only one hour from Sturgis. Don't miss Spearfish Scenic Byway, so beautiful in the fall. Deerfield Lake is only a couple miles down the road. This lake is renown for it's fantastic ice fishing in the winter. Award-winning winery, Prairie Berry and Miner Brewing Company are only minutes away.

About Billy

We are from California and took ownership of this home after falling in love with the area while visiting. We had never been to South Dakota before and, up until that time, had no idea how truly beautiful it is.

Why Billy chose Hill City

We love our home and the beauty of the wildlife and the Black Hills. And everyone is really friendly. This is now our vacation home and when we can't be here we our happy to rent it out to others so they can enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this mobile home unique

Our home is located 8 miles from Hill City, in the country near the famous Mickelson Trail, and Deerfield Lake. We are in the Black Hills National Forest, 20 minutes from Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse monument and one hour from Deadwood. And you can ATV right from our door step.

Quiet, clean and good location

  • 5 of 5

Sure it's a mobile home in a trailer park. Get over it!! It's a small, quiet park that is spread out. The home is at the end of the drive and is very quiet. Great views of fields and rolling hills. Plenty of wild life too. The home is clean, cozy and updated. Owners were extremely accommodating. One of few places that allow pets inside. Joanie, the park manager is very sweet and super accommodating as well. She is a big plus to the stay. Great location just 10-15 minutes outside the jewel of the black hills, Hill City. No hesitation recommending to other travelers.

The view from the master is the only reason I am giving any stars. When we arrived, the park managers dog was loose and caught in the driveway upon checking in. As we left, this same large dog jumped into my vehicle where my young daughter and small dog were sitting. Only one side of the property is painted the color in the exterior photo, the other three sides are not yet painted - an example of the property not be represented accurately. There are neighbors closeby, which is fine if you want to experience trailer park life. The supplied kitchenware was not well cleaned nor what was expected for the price paid per night. We had an incident with the wood stove, which the owner tried to remedy but it didn't improve the affect it had on our trip. The location is good as far as being away from crowds but close enough to go to Hill City if you need anything. The property is very quiet in the evening which is hard to find at other properties. There are passing through each day and coyotes howling each evening which was very nice! I would not stay again, but the property would probably suit some just fine.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed the views, they are beautiful! The property is work in progress. The exterior has now been fully painted and a new slate patio is going in. Our home is on 3/4 of an acre of it's own, certainly there are neighbors, but not like any typical "trailer park", we do not have trailers all right next to each other. All of beds are brand new high quality. We have satellite TV and high speed wi-fi. We are one of the few places that allow you to bring your pet with you and have them in the house. We also provide an outdoor kennel for your pet. Yes, there are other pets in the area but, we have taken measures to not have them anywhere near our home. We are striving to continue to make other improvements and will attempt to immediately correct anything that our guests may be unhappy with. Thank you for your review.
