Great property and excellent hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. It is private, extremely clean and has all the amenities that would make it a 5 star hotel. The hosts provided a well stocked kitchen, breakfast food and home baked goods. The apartment includes a washer & dryer, internet, large screen TV, comfortable bed and a shower/tub with lots of hot water. The location is perfect for visiting all the sites in the Black Hills yet removed from all the over populated tourist hotels and cabins. We highly recommend this property.

Perfect spot for a great South Dakota vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. It was centrally located. Spotlessly clean with all the essentials anyone could need. Food staples were provided making it unnecessary to run to the store immediately. Road noise was not an issue.

Thanks for helping make our vacation great.

The Hartman's

  • 5 of 5

The Hartman's vacation home was perfect for our stay in Custer. Near Custer State Park for hiking and taking in Mount Rushmore as well as the Mickelson Trail for biking. The home was spotless and equipped with all the amenities you could ask for and more. Full size kitchen stocked with everything to grill (outdoor grill on deck) or cook a full meal. Fresh baked bread, milk, juice, coffee, tea, condiments, eggs, bacon, dry cereal, etc ... very nice! Comfortable bedding with stocked bathroom and full size washer/dryer. Flat screen TV for viewing after a full day. Would definitely recommend!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was clean, comfortable and conveniently situated for Central Black Hills activities. It was a pleasure to come back each day after hiking/biking/sight-seeing. The hosts (Ted and Char) were extremely generous in providing home baked goodies and breakfast items along with basic condiments. We lacked for nothing...thoughtfully furnished kitchen/home. The bed was very comfortable. Shower had good water pressure and was nice and hot. The new washer and dryer was definitely a bonus...came home with a suitcase full of clean clothes! Enjoyed watching DVDs each evening, (DirectTV available too). Internet speed was good. Property is beautiful and enjoyed watching deer early in the morning and at dusk. The unit is an apartment attached to a beautiful home...never heard the homeowners, though we did see them occasionally as we were coming or going, and they were very friendly. Private entrance and plenty of covered parking for our car and bicycles. Tod was extremely responsive any time we needed to connect. We love the Black Hills and would not hesitate to try to stay at this location again in the future.

Little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! This little place is the perfect location for exploring the Black Hills and Badlands. In addition, the apartment is well stocked with everything you could need. Also, the owners kindly provided us with homemade bread (which our child loved), eggs, milk, fruit, and juice. We wish we could have stayed longer!
