About Matt Brown and Joy Falkenburg

Dr. Joy Falkenburg and her husband Matt Brown have lived in the Black Hills since 1999. They purchased the Little Red Inn in 2013 and opened it for use as a vacation home in 2014. They live next to Custer State Park with their family and enjoy the beauty and serenity of the Black Hills and all it has to offer all year long. They are locally available to give advice and help in situations that may occur.

Matt Brown and Joy Falkenburg purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Matt Brown and Joy Falkenburg chose Custer

We live just down the road from the Little Red Inn. It had been for sale and every time we drove by we thought about buying it and opening it up for vacationers to enjoy when they stayed in the Black Hills. It is in a beautiful location and is close enough to both Custer and Custer State Park to be the perfect spot for people who are visiting the Hills. The granite outcroppings east of Custer and Calamity Peak are just across the road from the Little Red Inn. Calamity Peak is one of the most photographed granite peaks in the Hills.

It is fantastic in any season. The snow falling on the granite outcroppings is incredibly beautiful and the green grass and quietness of the Hills are soothing.

What makes this cottage unique

A true Black Hills Experience. Enjoy the night air around the firepit. During the day, go see the sights.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to visit family and stayed with our family and her sister and her family. It worked out wonderful. We were able to have time for the kids to nap and we were able to eat at the house and still close enough to Custer to enjoy it as well. Lots of room inside and outside. The kids could safely play and the temps were perfect. I would come back here with my family again.

Great place close to town

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at The Little Red Inn. It was close enough to town to grab dinner or groceries but far enough away to feel secluded. It was also a great launching point for all of the site seeing to be done in the area. The kids loved feeding the cow and catching grasshoppers and frogs in the yard. IT was very quiet, the beds were comfortable and there was room enough for 3 adults and 3 kids under 9.

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and four kids were very comfortable during our stay in this lovely cabin. It is in a very good location for visiting surrounding attractions. The kids very much enjoyed the bunk beds, fire pit and the cows in the enclosed pasture next door. We were able to easily visit Keystone, Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park while using this is our home base. Very close to town for getting groceries or going out to eat. Hosts made the check-in and check-out process very smooth! Would definitely stay here again.

Ideally located three miles from Custer and two miles from Custer State Park, we are centrally located to all your Black Hills activities, including Wind Cave, the Needles Highway, Mt. Rushmore, Sylvan Lake, Crazy Horse, Hill City, Keystone, Custer State Park, the Mickelson Trail, Custer, Rapid City and Iron Mt. Road. The Little Red Inn has fenced pasture that commonly holds my miniature pony, Buttercup, or our milk cow, Jello and Beezie.

For hunters, wildlife enthusiasts, and fishermen, opportunities abound! You are likely to see whitetail deer, wild turkey, elk, coyotes, and the occasional mountain lion on or around the property. Stockade and Bismark Lake are just over the hill and provide opportunity for fly and traditional line fishing for trout, perch, crappie, bass, northern, and sunfish. Buffalo also roam just minutes away in Custer State Park.

Custer city hosts the annual Buffalo Roundup, The CrazyHorse Volksmarch, Gold Discovery Days, The Oldtime Country Fair for the 4th of July, Custer Cruisin and a variety of other fun festivals.
