This property has a very unique layout and has been tastefully updated. We felt very at home and cannot think of anything that we would’ve changed from our stay.

We will definitely be back to this house. We enjoyed our stay and the commute into deadwood wasn’t bad, just a few minutes. Plenty of kitchenware for us to cook our own meals and the beds were very comfortable. The views were amazing.

Beautiful and super clean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! We had four couples, everyone had plenty of space and privacy. Just a short taxi ride to downtown Deadwood- it only costed about $24 for all of us to get there. We will definitely stay there again.

Great House!! Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time here! There 4 adults and 4 children and we all instantly felt at home once we walked inside. Yvonne and her husband do a TERRIFIC job at accommodating their guests. We were about 1 hour away form all attractions (Bear Country USA, Mt. Rushmore, Wall Drug, Badlands, Crazy Horse) with beautiful scenic drives on your way to all sites. House was big, clean, and had lots of games and activities for us to keep us occupied and having fun. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely book with Yvonne and her husband again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at the Summit House! The accommodations were perfect for our needs. We enjoyed the views from the balcony, and saw many deer by the house. Everything we needed was supplied. The owner was very helpful!

About Yvonne Starostecka

We enjoy spending weekends at the house, relaxing, reading books, going biking on the Michelson Trail, going out to dinner or touring the local attractions and new places we haven't seen yet. The changing weather conditions are always exciting to watch. We love going rock hunting, hiking, skiing and tubing with our kids. At night we cook dinners, sip wine and play board games.

Yvonne Starostecka purchased this house in 2013

Why Yvonne Starostecka chose Lead

It was love at first site. We saw the views from this house and the convenient location to so many activities, including skiing, the new Neutrino Lab in the historic Homestake gold mine and the close proximity to Deadwood events and the Michelson Trail.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the panoramic views of the mountains this property has to offer.
