About Lori Svoboda

My name is Lori Svoboda and I am a local Realtor in Custer & Rapid City. You can stop by and meet me at Western Skies Real Estate in downtown Custer, located on 523 Mt Rushmore Road...right next to Carson Drug and Mainstreet Square. We bought this home November 2014 to use as a vacation rental. My Husband, Scott and I both grew up in Custer. I then lived in Scottsdale Arizona for 13 years before moving back to my home town in 2010. Scott & I are now raising our two children in Custer. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call. You can call me at 605-517-0785 as well at my work # 605-673-2433. We look forward to working with you and enjoy your stay!

Why Lori Svoboda chose Black Hills

This property is located right next to the Rock Crest Lodge on the edge of Custer. This home is walking distance to everything in Custer; restaurants, mini golf, the mickelson trail, and much much more! Growing up, my best friend lived in this home and I have many great memories!

What makes this house unique

This home is close to everything yet quiet. You can go on a great hike with the Black Hills Forest service out the back yard or take your bike on the Mickelsen trail that will lead you to Custer State Park and hundreds of miles through the beautiful black hills!

Lots of space, great location, nicely decorated

  • 5 of 5

Multi-generational family of 7 stayed here for a week. Perfect home base for our Black Hills vacation. Easy access to Custer State Park; only 20 minutes to Mount Rushmore via highway. Walking distance to several very good restaurants. Strongly recommend the Begging Burro for Mexican fare.

House was very clean, quiet and spacious!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in custer. It was within walking distance to many restaurants and stores. Loved the Purple Pie place! Dishwasher did not work which was disappointing with 8 of us staying there. Otherwise well stocked and Lori was easy to work with.

Clean and spacious

We really appreciated this property. The location was great for trips to Mt. Rushmore, the Mammoth site, Custer State Park, etc. The house was beautifully decorated and so welcoming. We have six children, and there was plenty of space for all of us. Thanks so much!

Accommodations were excellent......the house was immaculately clean and well taken care of off the beaten path, but not to too far. Lori's hospitality was exceptional and genuine. I can not wait to return next year. If you're planning a trip to the black hills this is where you want to stay.

We loved this home. Everything was updated & clean. There were 3 couples & we had plenty of room & privacy. We had 4 motorcycles & could use the garage. Also, plenty of room to park 3 vehicles w/2 trailers. And the location was good to start our days from, to head out on daily runs. Quiet & no large crowds. (sorry for the late review. I forgot to submit). The owner was very pleasant & easy to work with. Highly recommend.
