Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 friends rented this property over spring break 2017, one of the best choices I've ever made! Gary and Linda are wonderful people and the property is gorgeous. House is only a short drive from everything you will want to see in South Dakota. The vacation was one we will all remember and will be definitely rent again, Thank you Gary and Linda for everything! -Alex, Travis, Hunter and Brennan.

Laramie Bluffs Mountain Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The Laramie Bluffs Mountain Getaway was in a beautiful, scenic location very close to all the attractions in and around Custer! Lots of good hiking and site seeing nearby. The hiking trail at the back of the home leads to a beautiful summit to view the Crazy Horse Monument. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating to our needs. They lent us their hiking poles, extra marshmallow roasting skewers, and allowed us use of their fire pit. We enjoyed spending time with Linda and Gary and appreciated their offer to ask for anything we needed. Would definitely book again when traveling to South Dakota and the Black Hills. Thanks!!

Great apartment in the Black Hills

  • 5 of 5

A few minutes outside of Custer SD. So much better than a hotel. Linda gave us some great hiking tips to check out just a few minutes up the road.

Wildlife everywhere you look anytime of the day. Morning coffee with the wild turkeys! You can get to all the major attractions in a short amount of time. We appreciated the cleanliness and care put into this home and property. My husband and I enjoyed our 5 night stay. I can't think of anything that we needed that wasn't provided. We appreciated the Wi-Fi and motion sensor lights outside as we usually we're returning in the dark. We found some good places to eat in Custer and Hill City also Hot Springs. Thank you Linda and Gary for sharing this great VRBO. I would highly recommend this mountain getaway.

Wonderful getaway apartment near Custer.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the well-equipped apartment over the garage nestled in the foothills outside of Custer. Gary and Linda were extremely helpful - not only with the rental - but with offering advice on the best way to spend our time in the area. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to South Dakota.

Cozy cabin retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a fantastic time visiting Custer SD. It was so nice to be able to come back to this cozy cabin that had everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit and roasting marshmallow as well as exploring the rocks behind the property. The cabin was well stocked and easily accessibly. Thanks for a great weekend!
