Beautiful apartment!! My husband, son and I stayed here for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer! The apartment is gorgeous, spotless and had everything we needed (and then some!). Linda and Gary were great to work with and very helpful. We loved the backyard space to ourselves to grill and eat outside. Close to many Custer attractions including Custer State Park, Jewel Cave and downtown Custer. We would highly recommend and hope that we'll someday be back in that area to stay again.

Black Hills Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Laramie Bluffs and couldn't have picked a more peaceful, beautiful setting for our trip to the Black Hills. The accommodations were clean and comfortable and, even though the apartment was right next door to the owner's house, they did not intrude on our privacy. There was a wall unit A/C in the bedroom (and ceiling fans in all rooms) for warmer days and wall heaters in each room for cooler weather. There was a lovely picnic area outside where the deer would pass by in the evening, and wild turkeys were seen along the road to the property on most days. The only suggestion would be to install window coverings in the living room/kitchen area for a bit more privacy. We highly recommend this charming getaway!

Quiet, Clean, and Comforable

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay during your Black Hills experience check out Laramie Bluffs Mountain Getaway. The clean and quiet rooms are "completely" stocked to make your stay easy and comfortable including lots of local travel information. We slept 3 adults in the large bedroom which has 2 comfortable beds. The kitchen/dinning area is a good size and easily handles 4+ people. We were only a few minutes by car from the town of Custer and excellently located to visit the entire Black Hills area (which we enjoyed for 4 days). The grounds are beautiful and were just the place to watch the sun rise to start the day and a great place to have a glass of wine in the evening.

We want to thank Linda our hostess for offering such an enjoyable retreat.

Great location. Perfect for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 days in the hills. The fully furnished kitchen allowed us to make a wonderful breakfast each day. They supplied a cooler and ice packs, so we got groceries in town and packed a picnic lunch which was great. Plenty of space. We didn't have a chance to use the grill or fire pit, but it was great knowing we had the option. I would highly recommend staying here. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.

Peaceful retreat after long days out

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the serenity after very full sight-seeing days. Our sons (ages 5 and 8) loved climbing the large rocks in the backyard and roasting marshmallows. I enjoyed a peaceful run on the gravel roads. The owner was very helpful with sightseeing tips and directions.
