Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location to get to all of the local attractions. We enjoyed all the 'extras' that were provided. We arrived and had milk, eggs, bread and juice in the fridge. The owners also left a yummy plate of coffee cake. So nice to have things around to eat after a very long drive. The washer and dryer were wonderful! The place is so clean and tidy. It was a nice place to rest our weary bodies at night after a long day of exploring. It is right on HWY 385 which made it too noisy to be able to relax on the front porch but you do not hear the noise inside the apartment. The trail behind the house was nice to use for an evening walk. Overall, a great place to stay!

Great VRBO

  • 5 of 5

This is a great VRBO in the Custer area. Impeccably clean and the kitchen was very well stocked with utensils and cookware. The refrigerator is even stocked with those items that you would like (ketchup, jam, butter, salad dressings, etc) but you didn't want to buy at the grocery store for the few days you are there. Todd's parents live on site and are the nicest people. The place is exactly as it was described. It is located off of a fairly busy road so yes it is noisy if you sit out on the deck. We were out exploring most of the time so there was not a whole lot of time to sit around. I would highly recommend this VRBO.

Adorable and super clean!

  • 5 of 5

This loft is on a second floor has a kitchen/living area, a bedroom, bathroom, and laundry room. It is newly remodeled and immaculately clean with the cutest decorations. We have stayed at lots of vrbo's and this one was amazingly stocked with house hold necessities. There was eggs, milk, juice, bread, and cold bottled water waiting for us in the fridge, coffee/tea fixings, shampoo/conditioner, and laundry soap/softener! A.C. worked well. The house is right off of 385 for easy access and with the front door shut no road noise can be heard. Tod was great, quick to respond to inquires but respected our privacy. Perfect place for a couple or small family!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay there. We came home to bread, oj, bacon, and homemade cookies when we arrived. It was a very nice touch that we weren't expecting. It was very clean and it has a WELL STOCKED KITCHEN. The owners are so nice to work with and answered any questions that we had. We would definitely stay there again!
