About Vicki and David Bartz
This is a picture of David and Vicki in March 2018. We are the third owner of Grandma's house after Vicki's folks passed away a few years ago. Vicki's mother's family moved from Gregory, SD to Custer in the 1940s. Vicki's mom later met her her husband in Wisconsin, while caring for relatives there. After World War II, Vicki's folks moved to Southern California, but chose to retire in the Black Hills near her mom's large extended family (13 siblings!). In 2003, they moved here to purchase "Grandma's House in the Woods," which our son loves to call it. Both her father and mother wanted others to enjoy the home and setting mom loved best. Sincerely, Vicki and David Bartz
Vicki and David Bartz purchased this house in 2003
Why Vicki and David Bartz chose Custer
This property has the unique characteristics of all the wonderful, rugged aspects of the beautiful South Dakota Black Hills, but with the close proximity to everything you would need from town. The drive to Custer is only 6-7 minutes away. Picture sitting in the morning with a cup of coffee on the spacious front porch or patio by the fountain, watching deer, or maybe flocks of wild turkeys grazing on the five acre property. Or watching the moon rise in the evenings gazing at the milky way, with a glass of awesome South Dakota wine. Grandma's House is one of the most peaceful places you will ever go, and a great "home base" for your tour of the Southern Black Hills.
What makes this house unique
When you want to get away to sightsee, you could not ask for a more convenient place from which to visit the most beautiful sights and attractions in western South Dakota such as: Two beautiful hours to Devil's Tower National Monument, Wyoming and about the same to Badlands National Park to the east; One hour 20 minutes to historic Deadwood, SD; 80 minutes to Sturgis, rally headquarters; 30 minutes to Mount Rushmore National Monument; 15 minutes to Crazy Horse Memorial; Only 10 minutes to the entrance to Custer State Park, one of the most beautiful state parks in the USA. If you bring your bicycle, we are only a 3 minute bike ride to the Mickelson Trail, which follows the old railroad bed from Edgemont north to Deadwood, SD. If you love golf, we are only a mile from the clubhouse of the lovely Rocky Knolls Custer Municipal Golf Course (our home is also just a short walk to the course). There are many more sights available to see in the Black Hills, Western South Dakota and Northeastern Wyoming, which are all close to our beautiful property. We hope you choose to make "Grandma's House in the Woods" your home away from home during your stay.
