Cozy cabin for our Black Hills vacation! Plenty of room for us and our 2 grandsons. The location was convenient for all our day trips! We also enjoyed the morning visits from a doe and her triplet fawns.

Loved, loved, loved our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a sweet little cabin! We are thrilled we stayed here! Beautiful little cabin out in the pines, yet close to Hill City. We couldn't have been happier with the location or the cabin. First, the location. Hill City is about 20 or so minutes from Rushmore, Custer State Park, Custer, Keystone, and Crazy Horse.. The cabin is just a few blocks from downtown Hill City, restaurants, grocery store, bike trails and the 1880 train. Now the best part - the cabin! Beautifully updated and decorated, this cozy cabin was perfect for our family of 5. We had plenty of room to relax after a day of taking in the activities around the Black Hills. Each of our boys had their own beds as there is a small nook off the living room with a bunk bed and a double bed. The master bed room has a comfortable queen bed, and is on the opposite side of the LR. There is only one bathroom, but it worked just fine for all of us. Full sized kitchen with all updated appliances. There isn't a dishwasher, but that was perfect too as each of our boys had a chance to learn the art of washing dishes by hand. Wasn't a problem at all! Each night we had a family of deer visit outside the picture window. We loved it! We also enjoyed seeing the 1880 train go by. The track goes by up the hill in front of the cabin. We could hear the whistle at times, but the cabin is so quiet we barely noticed it. Did I mention how cute the cabin is from the outside? So cute!

I can't say enough about how lovely this cabin is and all it offers! Would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you Jim and June! You were a joy to work with!

We loved our stay at the Boxcar Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful! It was so clean and cozy and quaint! We stayed there with our 2 young children who just loved the bunk bed area. It was everything you needed for a family of 4, not too big but fully stocked with the essentails for before and after a day of play and wherever you turned there were lamps that just made it so homey. We put corn cobs out and saw so many deer out our front window I lost count! We all enjoyed waving at the friendly 1880 train as it went right by the house daily. The house was perfect for a family of 4, anything much bigger might get a bit cramped. The grills and deck were great at night, but watch out there are a couple spots on the deck that are warped and have loose nails. The fire pit was also a great way to end the night! Overall this place was just fantastic, very clean, did not smell, no bugs, and so cozy and convenient to local attractions. You could tell the owners take a lot of pride in this property....we highly recommend it!!!

Quaint, Quite and Ideal Location!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean cottage. The location can not be beat... Hill City around the corner but you you have your own piece of solitude. Nice outdoor areas for kids to run around and a fire pit. 1880 Train was a hit everyday with our kids! Jim was nice and easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again!

Boxcar cabin is a wonderful spot to stay in the Hills

  • 5 of 5

Located just outside of Hill City, the cabin is nestled among beautiful ponderosa pine trees. It was very comfortable for us grandparents, daughter, son-in-law and 3 1/2 year old grandson. We loved hearing and waving to the 1880 train as it went by up the hill, and gathering around the fire pit nightly to make s'mores was much fun. As the cabin is centrally located, we didn't have long drives to any of the activities and locales of the Black Hills, including Mount Rushmore, Sylvan Lake, Crazy Horse, Bear County, and Reptile Gardens. Hill City is a nice town and we were only 5 minutes to the grocery store. Highlights included seeing deer in the yard every day, eating on the lovely deck, and enjoying a clean, pretty environment for sleeping and visiting. I highly recommend this location to all!
