Couldn't ask for more, no complaints here. Loved the cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great and just the right size for our family of 4. Had everything we needed and the hot tub was an extra added bonus that we really enjoyed. We hosted Thanksgiving at the cabin and had plenty of seating for sitting and relaxing and also for eating. There was plenty of seating for 10 people to eat comfortably. Two full bathrooms with plenty of room in them as well. Had all the kitchen items and utensils we needed and then some. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to other. Bridget was very helpful and accommodating with any questions or concerns that I may have had. We will more than likely book this again next year when we come out for Christmas. Thank you very much Bridget.

Very nice fully furnished log cabin

  • 4 of 5

Everything you need is available here all you need to do is buy the food to cook. We loved how open the cabin was and the grill attached to the outside of house. The hot tub was also a great plus. We would love to see it during the summer when the stream isn’t frozen and can view it better from hot tub. Would definitely recommend to friends and family!

Owner's Response: We were very happy to host Tera's group at our cabin. We were a little concerned when we saw the 4 star rating. But after visiting with Tera she stated that she meant to give a 5 star and that her 4 star rating was an error. We strive to provide a positive, memorable stay at our cabin. We look forward to having Tera's group return.

Perfect location and very comfortable! This cabin will meet all of your expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Sitting in the hot tub watching the stream with deer running thru the Pines. Perfect setting. This cabin also had 2 large picnic tables and gas grill. Inside the kitchen is open to the living room with 2 sliders facing the stream and woods. The furniture is very comfortable thru out the cabin. Loved the island with all the seating. It was just the two of us but this cabin would be perfect for large groups. The kitchen has everything you need to fix a large dinner. Large bathrooms located on main floor and upstairs. The location is perfect: minutes to Hill City and the 1880 Train, Krulls Grocery Store and shopping. From this cabin it's a easy drive into Rapid City, Bear Country USA, Old McDonald's Farm. Or to Custer State Park, Crazy Horse, Mt. Rushmore, dine at Black Hills Bun and Burger and Sage Creek Grille in Custer (our Fav) You will not be disappointed and will love this cabin whether it's just the two of you or a group. We always visit in the summer but we're so glad we came out this winter from Jan 8 to the 14th. The temps were in the 50,s 40s and 30s.. and beautiful blue skies and Sun all but one day. We are considering a Winter month long stay next year. The owners were proactive emailing to make sure we had everything we needed and left their cell numbers and email addresses in case we needed anything. Once again the sofa and chairs were so comfortable along with the 3

footstools. We just really had a relaxing winter visit. The hills are so beautiful this time of year. Custer State Park was gorgeous. Loved seeing the Bison, prong horn, Prairie dogs. Roads were sanded and salted in the park. I could go on and on....if you stay here you'll find a comfortable cabin, fully furnished in a convenient location to everything the Black Hills has to offer.

Can you tell we loved it?😉? Cannot wait for another wintertime visit. Thank you Randy and Bridget!

Perfect Christmas Get-away

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed over Christmas and just had the nicest time. The cabin was well maintained, full of amenities and decorated for the season. Our hosts were easy to contact and very accommodating to our requests. We will plan to come again for sure.
