Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic VRBO. Plenty of room for family members or friends, even furry ones. Jim was a very gracious host and set us up for a great stay. The house is very roomy and comfortable and in a convenient location. The yard is beautiful and allows for family gatherings or just sitting outside in the morning for a quiet cup of coffee. There was always plenty of parking for guests even though it was a busy weekend in Hill City. My family that came by for a BBQ had plenty of very positive compliments for this home. Thank you Jim.

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay right near downtown Hill City. We had two families (4 adults and 7 kiddos) and everyone had enough space to really enjoy our time at the house, when not exploring the Black Hills and attractions. Laundry available was a great perk with so many people. The only thing we noted was that the upstairs bed was insanely noisy, like even just brushing up against it would result in tons of noise. HA! Thankfully it just became a running joke and it only seemed those sleeping upstairs heard it, so that was good.

Overall, outside spaces and inside spaces all beautiful and well appointed. Oh one other note, the accent lights under the TV in the living can get HOT, which we only found out because one of the toddlers ran her hand against one. =/ We simply kept them off, so problem solved, but worth noting if you have little explorers in your party like we did. ;)

Jim met us the day we arrived and showed us around and was very welcoming. Had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend or stay again if we visit the area. =)

The home and furnishing were great. Beautiful kitchen had everything we needed. Two living rooms allowed of us to spread out comfortably. The location of the home in Hill City is fantastic. Short walk to shops and restaurants in Hill City. Hill City is centrally located between Custer State Park and Deadwood. Both were enjoyed by the family.

Great stay in Hill City

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our 3 families. 11 people in all. Lots of room to spread out. Stocked with everything anyone could ever need. Central location to everything we wanted to see in this area. Step out the door and explore the town with many interesting shops. Then great to come back after a tiring day of seeing the sights and have a fire and roast marshmallows or sit in the hot tub. Beds comfortable and all in the house extremely clean. Owner very nice and helpful. The 1880’s train was a big hit. Several nice places to eat and a well stocked grocery store. If we return to this area would definitely rent this house again.

Excellent for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a family reunion, but we are not campers. So happy we found this place. The property is very well maintained, and nicely equipped. The kitchen was well stocked for us to prep our own meals and large enough to have my family over for supper when it rained. Our two dogs were also welcome provided that we respected the property. Overall, our stay was wonderful, we would definitely stay again!

Main stay

  • 4 of 5

We had over all a wonderful time. Great location. Loved the fenced-in back yard for the dogs. Some things could use some help though. There were 10 of us and when you rent to that many, a larger hot-water heater would be nice. Also the upstairs bed really should be updated and with 10 of us we had a lot of garbage for just two outside garbage cans. But we did have a wonderful time and many great memories for our family.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your response and suggestions. The water heater is a 100 gal water heater or the largest one I could get in the home. This is the first time we have heard this as an issue. The bed upstairs was replaced. Turns out the frame was damaged and squeaky. Garbage is provided on the outside with 2 garbage cans and on the other side of the building a 5 yard dumpster. We do encourage people to reach out to us if any issues while staying with us. I would have taken care of anything within the hour. Anyway we are happy that you had a good time. Jim
