Overview

About the property

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

The address is 12677 OLEO DRIVE. My phone number is 605-517-1796. I welcome you to call me at any time with questions about booking our cabin. 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. We are allowing one night stays this year. 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!

About Deb Streets

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your tip about driving from here to Mt. Ruchmore via Iron Mt Rd was a highlite of the trip! Seeing all the wildlife at Custer SP near dusk was just great. Glad we didn't hit any! The stars-before the moon comes up-were spectacular. Thank you so much for being so accomodating.

Away from It all yet close to the everything

  • 5 of 5

Very secluded. The owners are a delight. The house is very warm and well resourced. Very welcoming and this morning as I was leaving, Dave (who was born and raised on the property) pushed me out of a snow “mishap”.

Easy access to everything you would wish to see.

Terrific place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin for 5 nights. Deb visited with us on a couple of occasions making us feel welcome and sharing very valuable points of interest during our stay. The cabin was very nice and secluded. The solitude and quiet was great.

Tranquility at the end of the road.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, fully equipped house in a spectacular, peaceful setting. This house has everything you could ask for. Three miles off of the main road, there are no sounds other than nature around you. A very comfortable bed, modern bathroom, fully equipped kitchen with full-size appliances, and a comfortable living room. Outside there was a nice porch for sitting with coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The BBQ grill was just off of the porch for convenience. There was also a great fire pit with ample seating for your group. Two adults had all the room that could be needed.

We didn't use the sleeping loft but it would be good for tweens or older kids, not for young ones. I would be wary of little kids using the ladder to get up or down.

It was an easy drive to the town of Custer and to the nearby attractions. Be aware that you are in a rural setting and deer, elk and turkeys were in abundance. Custer State Park was also nearby and the Bison herd was always available for viewing. Those guys are BIG when you are up close!

They are not kidding when they say that there is no wifi available. If you have T-Mobile, you won't have any service either. I don't know about other mobile carriers. The TV was only broadcast stations and the only reliable one was the PBS station. But we didn't stay there for the TV or internet. There is free wifi in Custer that we used once a day to check messages.

I would not hesitate to request this property again if I were to be in the area. The owners are super-friendly and the facility is first class. Thanks, Deb.

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5

This Rustic Rock Haven was great! Comfortable, quiet and cozy. We really enjoyed evenings by the fire pit. The opportunity for star gazing was amazing! The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area.

Beautiful, serene location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the cabin. It was exactly what we were looking for. The cabin is off the

main road and surrounded by National Forest. Very quiet and peaceful. We had everything

we needed to make our stay comfortable and convenient. Deb and Dave were very welcoming

and excellent hosts.

We are centrally located to Mount Rushmore, Wind Cave, Jewel Cave, Custer State Park, The Needles, Crazy Horse, Harney Peak, and the Mickelson Trail just to name a few. The cabin is sitting in the middle of several good lakes that you can fish, boat, or swim in including Sylvan Lake, Bismarck Lake, Center, and Stockade Lakes. There is wonderful hiking from the door of the cabin. The Paha Sapa trail is a short walk from the cabin. For those of you that are interested in fossils, The Woolly Mammoth Dig is 45 miles away in Hot Springs.
