About Matt Brown and Joy Falkenburg

Matt and Joy have lived in Custer for 15 years and Joy grew up in the area. They have enjoyed renting The Little Red Inn as a VRBO and are excited to offer a second property. They know the area well and want to share their love of the Black Hills with others.

Matt Brown and Joy Falkenburg purchased this house in 2015

Why Matt Brown and Joy Falkenburg chose Custer

Joy fell in love with this property from the moment she saw it. "I love the aspen trees and how it is tucked into the hillside". It is a beautiful home with all the amenities that make it wonderful. The house is beautiful inside and out. The paved driveway makes it even better. I love how close we are to Custer but I enjoy being outside the city limits and enjoy the peace and quiet.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful, clean and very nicely decorated.

Nice linens and beds.

Mature trees and plenty of room to roam.

Attached Garage

Paved entry.

Easy access to town

DELIGHTFUL HOUSE IN A GREAT SETTING

  • 5 of 5

If you're vacationing in the Black Hills of SD this property makes a great home base, and a wonderful place to chill out when you're tired of sight-seeing and driving around. Very centrally located to the entire Black Hills area. Good roads make it an easy location to drive to. The house was spotless on our arrival. Well enough equipped kitchen unless you're a gourmet chef planning a really large dinner party. Sleeps 6 very comfortably. We had a party of 8, and even the couple sleeping on the pull out couch slept very well once the available very thick and heavy comforter was laid atop the relatively thin mattress common to a sleep-sofa. And i should know, since i slept on that sleep-sofa! No complaints. If I were to vacation in the area again, I'd not hesitate to rent again

Want to get away? This is it

  • 5 of 5

Close to civilization yet in it's own world. Short trip to town for most supplies and resturants while at the same time gives that isolated feel. Will be back next year for sure.

Beautiful property in a great location to explore the Black Hills

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and is in a great location. There is lots of room for a family. We had 4 adults/2 kids and we were very comfortable. We saw deer on the property everyday of our stay. The property is located very close to Highway 16 but far enough away that it still feels very private. Custer is a great town with lots of good food choices. We had easy drives to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Custer State Park. I would highly recommend this property for a Black Hills vacation.

Nice House, Nice Owners

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and the quiet surrounding wooded area. It was perfect for exploring all of the major sites in the Black Hills. The owners were very nice and helpful, even offering some travel agent type tips which were very helpful. We truly enjoyed our trip to this wonderful place!

Getting away from it all...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently headed west for vacation in South Dakota. We made the Woodcarver's Cottage our home base for outings to Devil's Tower, the Badlands, and other sites within a 2 hour circle. We were grateful for this cozy home to relax in after each day's outing. It had everything we needed, plus wildlife right outside! Definitely would recommend this one!

You should see the Black Hills from here! Custer is your central location to see all the sights. Crazy Horse is within 6 miles. Mount Rushmore is about 30 min. Custer State Park is minutes away. Hot Springs with Wind Cave and Mammoth Site is 25 minutes away. Deadwood is 45 minutes and Sturgis is one hour away.

You can enjoy a busy day and relax in this private home in a beautiful setting. Local restaurants include Black Hills Burger and Bun which was named the number one burger in the nation in 2014. The golf course is next door and there is a playground about 1 mile away. This is your perfect destination.

Bring your hiking shoes, climbing gear, bicycle or motorcycle and enjoy the outdoor beauty of the Black Hills. Rest and Relax and do nothing. Enjoy the friendly people in the surrounding communities and feel free to text the owners questions you have about your stay.

You are going to love it here!
