Mt. Rushmore is sure to be one of the highlights of your Black Hills vacation. The monument is open year-around; the summer months feature a spectacular lighting ceremony nightly.
Crazy Horse monument is another famous monument dedicated to the rich Native American history that exists in this area.
If hiking is your passion, you'll want to hike Harney Peak, which is the highest mountain, traveling east, between the Rocky Mountains and the Swiss Alps!
Museums are numerous.
There are also many caves in the Hills which attract visitors from far and wide.
The famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (first week of August) draws thousands of bikers from all over the world.
Whatever your particular interests, there is something to satisfy every member of your party, whether it's hiking, boating, golfing, hunting, kayaking, swimming, caving, bicycling, rock climbing --- you may find it all in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Perhaps you would prefer just a quiet retreat from your hectic life. No problem! We're happy to say, the Black Hills enjoys a smaller population which allows visitors plenty of room to enjoy the sights and venues without overcrowding. One can usually find accommodations, even at the last minute (with maybe the exception of Sturgis Rally).
There are too numerous sights to mention each one, but when you arrive, we will supply you with plenty of information to help you plan your holiday in the Hills!
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Fred was born and raised in Croatia, Cheryl, in Iowa. They met at a university in S. California, where they both graduated with degrees in violin performance. Later Fred chose dentistry and graduated with his DDS. Cheryl received her Master's Degree in violin performance from University of S. Calif in Los Angeles, and went on to perform and teach for 35 years. After practicing dentistry in Guam for 8 years and teaching on the faculty at his alma mater for 15 years, Fred (& Cheryl) chose to retire in the Black Hills of South Dakota, because of their wish to live in a quieter and more rural environment. They have never been disappointed with their decision, even though many of their family and friends wondered why they would ever want to 'move to South Dakota!!' As the years have passed, their family now understand why they were attracted to the Black Hills!! Fred and Cheryl designed a home with a vacation rental apartment, where they can host people from all over the world! They look forward to having you stay with them. They enjoy making their guests feel at home during their visit and they hope you will enjoy the Black Hills as much as they do!!
Why the Owner Chose Hermosa, SD, USA:
We chose this area for it beauty and tranquility, and yet its close proximity to small city life and to endless beautiful sights and scenic places to visit, which are still quite unspoiled from commercialism. It's a known fact that 'The Black Hills are the best kept secret in the Nation!'
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This lovely apartment is the entire downstairs of our new home, same floor plan, built in 2014. Mt. Rushmore is 20 min. from your door (Visible from our deck!) --- close enough for convenience, and yet far enough to avoid the tourism rush. At this quiet location, you would never know that there are over 3 million visitors that visit Mt. Rushmore each year!! There are great restaurants throughout the Black Hills, and of course, plenty of good shopping and never-ending sights to visit. We are centrally located - less than an hour to most popular attractions in the Black Hills.
