Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Custer, SD, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
