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 Black Hills

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.

Excellent Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Home was lovely! There was plenty of room and it was very well maintained. The parking is tight, but growing up in Lead that is normal. We needed an extra day because of a snow storm that came in on our check out date. I contacted Yvonne and she had me set up with an extra day in no time. There were plenty amenities and then some. We definitely will be staying again when we are back there!

Great location, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The owner and person of contact is absolutely wonderful to work with. We have rented several homes over the past few years and Yvonne is, hands down, the best person to deal with!

Now, the house review! The home has been beautifully updated and decorated. The house is very clean and comfortable. You can tell that there was a great deal of care taken in picking out furniture and decor. The layout of the house is perfect for a large group or family. All three bedrooms are separate (one upstairs, main level and the lower level). It was PERFECT for our family of three couples. Also off the upstairs bedroom there is an adjoining room with two twin beds. Also, the views from the upstairs bedroom and both decks were incredible!

The location is perfect! We stayed in Lead and traveled to Custer Park, Mt Rushmore and Crazyhorse one day and spent time in Deadwood/Lead area another day. So this cabin is centrally located to check off all your Black Hills bucket list items!

I would definitely go back and would most certainly recommend the Summit Lodge to my friends and family! The only negative aspect of our stay....was leaving :-)

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. 4 couples came to Lead from Kansas for Sturgis, had a great time. Everything you need / want is provided. The view from the deck is amazing. We rode, ate laughed and then laughed more!! Met the wonderful neighbors that provided lots of information. We used the local cab company for a day in Sturgis then on to a concert at the Chip that night and back. Yvonne is so accommodating so much appreciated. We will be back, the home is beautiful and perfect for our needs!

Thanks again

Amazing Home - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

One of our best family vacations that we have had. The home was everything that was promised and more. The biggest hit for our kids was the game room while we enjoyed the size of the house and being able to relax on the deck with the view. The house was very clean and had everything that we could want for our vacation stay. We found the location to be perfect for our many day trips to the sites and activities in the area.

We would highly recommend this home to anybody interested in visiting the area or just wanting to get away for the weekend.

great location beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

great location, nicely updated and decorated

parking is difficult for motorcycles as we had 3 touring bikes and it was hard to find a level spot close to the house to park on.

We had a great experience and would definitely do it again. We will recommend this property to others.
