Cute Place-Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The "Boxcar" was a clean well maintained place. We had deer on and around the property, including looking in the window at us, the whole week. The train was not running during our stay. It is a short drive to various attractions. Management met us for check-in and showed us around the cabin. They were very friendly. We had a mechanical issue while there that was responded to and repaired immediately. I would stay here again if I was in the area.

Beautiful setting, cozy home with all the amenities. We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

The Boxcar Bungalow was absolutely beautiful! We had such a wonderful time. The house is perfectly clean and came with everything you could need for a cabin. The house was easy to find, close to town, secure, and quiet. It even came with visiting deer. My kids looked forward to getting up in the morning and opening the blinds to see the deer in the backyard. If we head back to the Black Hills again, we will definitely rent this cabin again. I would recommend it to everyone.

Great Home in a Quiet Area

  • 5 of 5

What a great, nicely decorated home to relax in and come home to in the evenings. We really appreciated the central location of the Black Hills area and Hill City is a fun town as well. Highly recommended. Thanks to Jim for arranging the stay.

Trains Animals and Tractors!

  • 5 of 5

Our two year old son loved watching the trains from the front door, watching the deer walk through the yard often and a parade of vintage tractors that drove by. The location was great for our young family. The cabin exceeded our needs and expectations. I'd stay again.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Boxcar. The home was very clean and neat with all the start up amenities in place. There was plenty of parking, although getting in and out of the drive required the need to be very cautious. The location was scenic with deer that visited every morning and evening. Loved watching the steam engine come by along the hilltop. We would love to stay at the Boxcar again in the future!

Boxcar Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We, two sisters and our husbands) wanted a place in the mountains to enjoy the peace and quiet, smell the pines and just relax. We found this in this cozy cottage. Close to town and everything the Black Hills has to offer. We enjoyed the presidents, the curves of Iron Mountain Road, the beauty of Needles Highway , and the wonder of Spearfish Canyon. We sat and relaxed beside the many lakes in the area. We spent an afternoon at the winery enjoying good wine company and scenery. Mornings on the golf course in Custer not caring about the score. And returning in the evening to the quiet cabin , the last whistle of the 1880's train, the deer making their way to the meadow below, the rushing of the creek and a peaceful campfire. It was all we hoped for and more. Oh and the clover patches in the yard yielded a plethora of four leaf clovers. A truly "lucky" place to find! Thank you for sharing!
