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!

Great property!!

  • 5 of 5

We sure enjoyed this property. It was everything we needed for our stay in Custer for Grandpas 80th birthday. We will definitely remember this house and use it again!

Thanks so much, Lori.

Wonderful stay in Custer.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room for our family of 9. Owners were always quick to respond to any need. Was concerned with window A.C. at 90 degrees out but all was great. Would love to stay again. You can walk anywhere with no problem.

Would enjoy doing this again!

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we expected and more. Great location, we had deer wonder thru the yard every night. Close to attractions, Custer park, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and all the wild riding roads a biker could ask for. The 4 couples enjoyed our stay so much, nobody wanted to leave. Thank you for the great stay.

Great house for a large group

  • 4 of 5

We had 4 adults and 6 kids and spent 3 nights here. It was clean and spacious. Loved that the kitchen was well stocked with pans, plates, silverware, crock pots, etc. Also plenty of pillows and towels. There are 4 queen beds and 1 futon. All were great except one queen downstairs, which sunk in the middle. One upstairs bedroom got very hot, and wouldn't cool down. There was a fan that helped a little. The rest of the house stayed cool with the help of the kitchen's window AC. (We visited in early July, the temperatures were in the 80's.) We used the grill outside, it worked great. The vacuum cleaner overheated a few times, but once it cooled down it started again. Overall, we had a great experience and we would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: We have since added another ac unit In one of the bedrooms. I am unaware of a bed that sunk in the middle. We will work on replacing it as they are all new beds in the house. We strive for 5 star reviews. As far as the vacuum, we do not charge any cleaning fee and guest don't need to vac as the house cleaner will do so after cleaning. Thank you for staying and we hope to have you come again.

Perfect location for Black Hills adventures!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 stay at this house in Custer. The house is set up perfectly that we never felt crowded. Two bedrooms upstairs share a bathroom and two bedrooms downstairs share a bathroom. There are multiple areas to hang out and relax. This was the perfect location to get to everything we wanted to do. We spent half of our week at Custer State Park, which was only a short drive. We would definitely come back. The house was very comfortable and for the price, we couldn't have picked a better spot for a week long family trip. We cooked most days with the kitchen having all of the tools we needed, and the house was only a few minutes away from multiple dining options for our nights eating out. The Purple Pie Place is a must!

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!
