About the property

Beautiful Cabin in the Hills, Perfect for Family Vacations and Sturgis Rally

Our getaway cabin in the Central Black Hills is perfect for those who are looking for a quiet base for their Black Hills vacation. Very accessible location, the roads to the cabin are all paved, except the last one-tenth of a mile, which is nicely-graded gravel.

Panoramic views of the hills and forest from all rooms of the cabin. Main floor has one bedroom (1 full bed), one bathroom, living/dining area, a full kitchen, and covered deck. Large loft has sleeping area (1 queen bed and 1 full bed) and TV/DVD. Unfinished basement has a ping-pong table. Elderly and wheelchair friendly, with zero steps to get from your vehicle to the main floor.

Start your day with a lovely breakfast on the large deck, with just the murmuring sounds of the nearby ponderosa trees. Spend an adventure-filled day in the Black Hills or simply laze around the cabin and meander through the backyard forest.

The major attractions of the Black Hills - Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, Sylvan Lake - are just 30 minutes away. Jewel Cave is one hour away. For shopping and dining, Hill City is 15 minutes away. The village of Rochford and the ghost town of Mystic are 30 minutes away. Fishing, boating, and hiking at Deerfield Lake are just four miles away. For those who love to take in the gorgeous Black Hills, while burning calories, we have mountain bikes available free for your use. From the cabin, pedal three miles on a rough country road and you'll reach the Mickelson Trail, the best rails-to-trails in the West.

Come and enjoy the Black Hills from our forest's edge cabin!

About Black Hills Forest Edge Cabin

Our family moved to the Black Hills over twenty years ago and quickly discovered the beauty of the area. We haven't thought about moving anywhere else since then. We look forward to meeting you and we hope you will enjoy your stay at our cabin.

Why Black Hills Forest Edge Cabin chose Black Hills

We love spending time in the Central Hills. At every opportunity we had, we would go camping at Custer State Park or Hill City. Finding this cabin was a blessing and we are happy to be able to share it with our guests.

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet and secluded, but very accessible from the main road - a perfect base to enjoy the beauty of the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Black Hills Forest Edge Cabin was all we hoped it would be and more! Mornings on the back porch with a cup of ka were delightful. Kids loved gathering wild flowers, traipsing through the woods, and playing ping-pong. We could surely feel the love and thought put into every detail of the cabin. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. We will treasure the memories of our South Dakota vacation for many years to come.

Beautiful home in a quiet relaxing area.

  • 4 of 5

Forest Edge Cabin was a well maintained home with all the amenities you need. We had no cell service at the cabin but that only bothered our teenagers! We enjoyed exporing the forest area and the area around deer lake. The house was a little further out of townn which wasn't a big deal except that we spent a lot of time driving to our locations & it just added to time in the car. It was a great trip to the Black Hills and this home only added to our experience!

A comfortable clean home.

  • 5 of 5

Black Hills Forest Edge Cabin has the perfect amount of comfort for a stay in the Black Hills. It's located close to all of the major attractions but far enough outside of town that on a clear night the Milky Way brilliantly arches overhead. We saw deer, wild turkey, a fox, and a host of song birds around the cabin. Sitting on the back porch watching the sun come up over the hills with a cup of coffee was a great way to start each day. The cabin is a great place to unplug and slow your motor down. It is also a great base to start day trips from. Devils Tower is 2-1/2 hours away. The Badlands were 2 hours away. Custer State Park was 25 minutes away. Mt Rushmore was only 25 minutes away. Hill City, which is only about 12 minutes away, has a good grocery store, several restaurants, a nice main street to walk down in the evening, and everyone is real nice. Ruby was a gracious host and my family and I are glad she opened her home to us!

So memorable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family so enjoyed the Forest Edge Cabin. We absolutely loved the location away from the more touristy campgrounds and hotels - but perfect distance to all the sight-seeing the Black Hills offers. Easy access on main roads, but a couple blocks from heavy traffic! We had calm evenings enjoying the weather and nature - including the deer and elk in the yard. Our four kids enjoyed the loft space, the deck for eating breakfast with the birds and the forest for exploring. A hand-made travel notebook provided us with extra information and even maps to area activities! We had everything we needed to enjoy some time away. We would certainly stay again with our kids or without!

Very nice cabin near Hill City

  • 5 of 5

The cabin sits at the edge of the forest about 12-15 minutes out of Hill City. Hill City is a nice town with some shops, restaurants and grocery store. Pretty much anything you need for the stay can be purchased there. We went to the Badlands, Mount Rushmore (go around 7 or 8 PM to tour and then see the show at 9), Custer State Park (the clear favorite), Devils Tower, Bear Country (the kids loved it), horse back riding (recommended!), Wind Cave, ATV riding (meh) and Spearfish canyon (swimming in the creek is a blast on hot days). If I could do it again (and it wasn't 95+ degrees everyday), I would spend 2-3 days in Custer State Park. Very highly recommended. Expect to drive a lot if you plan to see everything. Better yet, don't plan to see everything :)

The cabin is located on a dirt road about a 1/8 mile from paved roads that take you into town. The cabin was very clean and had everything that we needed to enjoy our stay including a grill, coffee maker and fun games! Kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. There is a deck which wraps around the south and east side of the cabin. We sat out on the deck in the morning and enjoyed our coffee watching the sunrise and at night playing board games (no mosquitoes!). We also saw a few deer wander through behind the cabin which was lots of fun for the kids.

The main floor is nice with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen/eating area and living room. The bedroom itself is nice but the bed (a full, I think) was a bit small for the grown ups. The loft has 3 beds (2 fulls and a single) and the 5 of us ended up sleeping there due to the slightly larger beds. The cabin doesn't have air conditioning, but the nights cooled off enough to make it comfortable for sleeping with the 2 ceiling fans and box fan moving air. It was 95+ degrees everyday we were there, but we were out and about all day, so I can't comment on how it would have been in the cabin during the day.

The owners were very nice and made sure we were comfortable. Everything was communicated clearly and we had no problems with anything during the stay.

Overall, a great experience.
