About Melissa Nelson

We love riding motorcycles around the Black Hills and were looking for a home that we could stay in while riding, or visiting with our family then rent when we are not there. We found many homes but most were on gravel. This property is on a paved road that also gives us the peacefulness of the Black Hills. The creek in the front yard was the deal maker for us. We enjoy our time just the two of us and also when we bring our 4 grown children to visit. Come visit God's country.

The property was great. It is in an excellent location and was stocked with everything my family of 7 needed! We thoroughly enjoyed our mornings and evenings out on the deck while listening to the creek. Melissa was great to work with. We would highly recommend this cabin to others!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you and your family had a fun time at our cabin! Sitting by the creek is a great way to end a full day of exploring. Hope to see you again in the future.

Well up kept, but no air!

  • 3 of 5

The house and property were beautiful. It was set back off the main road and was quiet and peaceful. There was plenty of space and extra beds and the washer and dryer were a nice touch. The shower on the main floor was quite small and there are no bath tubs for those of you with smaller children. The only thing we were disappointed with was no air conditioning. It was quite hot out when we stayed so it was muggy and hot in the house. If you were staying in the cooler months it would be great. Other them that the carport and other features were lovely.

Perfect, will rent again next time

  • 5 of 5

This house was more than we expected. The owners were very friendly and answered all questions promptly. The creek running through the property made for hours of entertainment for the children with us and the location was close enough to town yet set back enough for it to feel secluded. We came up for a family reunion and used our home as a meeting point for our entire family. The deck and yard were a perfect space for our gathering and we've already started to plan for next year. We most certainly will be renting this home again. The only thing I recommend to the owner would be to purchase more coffee mugs. There were only four but it made for an entertaining game, the last one awake had to drink from the measuring cup :) Thank you Melissa for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Home has everything you need. Location is private and peaceful. Hill City is just a few minutes away if you need groceries or want to do tourist things.

Good, but could've been great

  • 5 of 5

I am giving the property 5 stars because for the most part our stay was great! The property is very clean and quiet. It's down a quiet road but very close to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer State Park. The location can't be beat. We loved the quiet stream out front as well! My only issue with the property is that it is supposed to sleep 10 people so I expected plenty of linens and dishes. There were not. Our group was 6 adults and 5 children (the 11th guest was approved by the property owner). We booked our trip in October of 2015 so there was plenty of time to be prepared. We found that there were not enough pillows, blankets, sheets and washcloths (there were 6 washcloths in the whole house!). Luckily some in our group had brought some of these items from home so we got by. And we did a lot of laundry. We were on a 2 week long tour of the West and we did not have room to bring all this from home. As stated in the property description, linens and dishes are provided. I notified the property owner of this and she told me I could go to their other property and take what we needed from there. I felt like I shouldn't have to do that. It's our vacation. A few more coffee mugs would've been nice too. These things are all cheap and easy to obtain and would've made our stay great instead of good. I would still recommend this property to others and we would return to it if we are ever in the area!

Great place to stay for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place to stay that would accommodate 6 adults and 3 grandchildren ranging in age from 3 to 9 and a place that was away from the busy areas yet centrally located. This listing fit our need exactly and we had a wonderful experience. The owners are very accommodating and respond quickly to any requests. Our grand-kids spent many hours exploring and playing in the small creek that runs through the property. After a busy day of touring the Black Hills it was nice to come home to a quiet relaxing cabin away from the daily crowds. We highly recommend this place or the other listing just up the road also owned by the Nelsons.
