About the Property

Surrounded by National Forest , 3 miles to Custer State Park, 26 to Mt Rushmore

The address is 12677 OLEO DRIVE. This cabin was built by the owners and opened July, 2013. Much of the wood in the cabin came from the pine and aspen trees on our own land. All of the boards on the outside of the cabin were cut from Mountain Pine Beetle infested trees on our land. The loft ladder and railing we peeled from our trees. The bathroom vanity and medicine cabinet we built from aspen. The deck has a covered roof on it with lounge chairs and a grill. We have built a fire pit with benches next to the cabin for quests to enjoy and relax beside. We have plenty of fire wood for it on site.
We own 23 acres that is surrounded by National Forest Service Land. There is a creek running thru our land with a pond in it just below the cabin. The Norbeck Wildlife Refuge is just 100 yards from our property. We are approximately 3 miles from Custer State Park. You have a bird's eye view of the Needles from our drive way. We are located in the heart of the Southern Black Hill offering a wonderful base to explore all the Hills have to offer, but is also a perfect getaway for those searching for some peace and tranquility. There are many forest trails near the cabin that you can hike, bike, or ride horse on for all the exploration a heart could desire.
Consumables are provided. We are NOT charging a cleaning fee although we hope all will leave the cabin as clean as you found it in hopes of preventing this fee. A two night minimum stay is strongly encouraged but we are willing to work with you. Your reservation deposit is 1/2 of your stay with the balance due 30 days prior to arrival. There is a required $500 Vacation Rental damage security deposit . If the cabin is left in the same condition as when you arrive, the damage deposit will not be charged. If warranted due to damage or extra cleaning an itemized statement will be mailed to you along with the credit card charge for the repairs.

Cancellation Policy: Re-scheduling your stay is always permissible without loss of deposit monies. Cancellations made 31 or more days prior to arrival will receive a refund of the deposit LESS $50.00 or 10% of the reservation whichever is more. If cancelled within 30 days of arrival the initial deposit will be forfeited. Partial deposit may be refunded if the property is re-rented. There will be NO refunds for no-shows, late arrivals, or early departures.

We'd love to have you stay with us!

We are not charging a cleaning fee in hopes tenants will take good care of the cabin and leave it as clean as it was when they moved into the cabin. I have supplied a vaccum cleaner, and a variety of cleaning supplies for them to clean the cabin with before they leave.

Beginning January 1, 2015 our summer rate for June, July, and August will be $125 per night.

Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1948

About the owner: We live on the property and will be pleased to help you in any way we can. The land has been in the Streets family since 1948. Dave was born and raised on this land. I was born and raised 95 miles north of here. We are enjoying meeting the tenants as much as they are enjoying our little hide-a-way at the end of the Forest Service Road.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
For us this place is our little piece of Heaven. We are a short 6 miles out of town. It is so relaxing to come home at the end of the Forest Service Road and get away from the hustle, bustle, and noise of town. We can sit on the deck and watch deer, wild turkey, elk, and listen to many different birds.
