About Barb Hale

We have lived in the Black Hills for most of our lives and are familiar with local events and attractions. Dave is a self-employed taxidermist and I (Barb) work for a local insurance company. The home was built on land we purchased in 2000 and where we built our own home. The rental home was constructed primarily by the both of us during our free time and now we are offering to share it.

Barb Hale purchased this house in 2007

Why Barb Hale chose Whitewood

This would be a great place to spend a vacation to get away from the rush of daily living. Enjoy the solitude of country living and still close to many attractions. The property is owner managed and we live close enough to be able to assist you if you require anything. It is a new home built to accommodate a gathering of people with new furnishings.

What makes this house unique

We love this home and the Black Hills. Everyone should experience what we take for granted.

Fantastic Get-Away!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Awakening to the wildlife, beautiful sunrises & sunsets, this home is a fantastic get-away; beautiful inside and out! Open floor plan provided space for everyone's needs. From the nicely furnished kitchen, great "living areas," garage space for our "special cars," laundry facilities, the owners thought of everything! Many memories were made here! It was great to meet the owners who take great pride in this home.

Home is wonderful...and, Barb and Dave are the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

We will be back the next time we are in the Black Hills. Dave gave our 14 year old an almost hour long tour of his studio...a visit she will talk about for some time. Dave is not only a fine artist, but a genuine, engaging man. Dennis

This house was a great respite for our family of five after several days in cramped hotels. The house is so well maintained that it looks brand new. Spacious and well equipped. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Beautiful Cabin Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in Whitewood at this cabin in July. Barb and her husband were super accommodating. We ran out of propane for the gas grill and they were over within minutes with a replacement tank. The house is also incredibly clean.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed meeting you and your family. Sorry about the propane running out but fortunately Dave always keeps a full tank on hand. Come back anytime.

Outstanding property, location and hosts!

We loved everything about this cabin including the hosts who certainly went above and beyond. Perfect location between Spearfish and Sturgis. You won't go wrong with this choice.
