My husband, Tom and I are transplants to South Dakota and the Black Hills. He is originally from Virginia, and I am from Texas. We couldn't be happier that we ended up in one of the best kept secrets in America. We have four children and 6 grandchildren and we enjoy hiking and skiing and exploring the Black Hills. We are just 20 miles short of hiking all of the 121 miles of the South Dakota Centennial Trail that weaves its way through some of the most scenic spots in the Black Hills.
Why Pam chose Mount Rushmore
The Creek Front Cabin was originally built by my grandparents in the early 1960's, and I have been fortunate enough to take care of it for the past 40 years. I love this place. The rugged beauty of the canyon, the sound of the rippling creek, the private setting, and the deck make it a tranquil setting that is truly one of a kind. I can't think of anything better than curling up with a good book on the hammock underneath the huge covered 40' long deck. Listening to the calming effects of the creek is the best R & R a person could ever dream of ... Yes, there is fishing right from the backyard and a whole variety of wildlife and birds have been seen over the years. To date, we've seen over 33 different birds, plus mink, raccoons, turkey and deer to name a few.
What makes this Cabin unique
You'll experience peace, quiet and relaxation at our private, adults-only vacation property. The location of the cabin in the Hisega area adds so much history and charm. This neighborhood dates back to 1908 and it was named after the first letters of six women who visited here then: Helen, Ida, Sade, Ethel, Grace and Ada. These women were part of a camping party, and later cabins were built, along with the Hisega Lodge. It was a true vacation resort for folks coming from the prairies of eastern South Dakota by train. The full story of how Hisega transformed over the years is in the cabin for you to discover. Many, many people have told me that the setting is the "nicest spot in all the Black Hills". I couldn't agree more. This isn't just a "place to stay" - it is a place to experience ... My grandparents would be happy that I have made it available for others to enjoy. I invite you to come and experience the Creek Front Cabin at Hisega!

Overall Outstanding in every way
Could not ask for a nicer cabin or better view, hands down the best in the area. Pam did a great job making us feel at home and I would definitely recommend it to my friends and would stay again if in the area.
We spent our Christmas at the Creek Front Cabin, what a beautiful location to get away for a few days and enjoy some of what South Dakota and the Black Hills have to offer. Pam is an excellent hostess. Pam met us at the house to go over a few things and make sure we were comfortable and even left goodies that were delicious. Pam even checked on us during our stay, couldn't have asked for a more gracious host! The house is a perfect size for a small family or two couples. Everything you could need is there. We had visits from the local wildlife and enjoyed relaxing in front of the fire every night. We cooked a few meals in the house and had no trouble finding what we needed. The drive in and out is beautiful and where we usually saw lots of deer. I can't recommend the cabin enough, we can't wait to go back in the Spring or Summer!
So peaceful and beautiful. Enjoyed it immensely.
Spectacular views from the deck and all the amenities you would want for a relaxing weekend.
A wonderful private cabin with unbelievable views from the deck. Great fireplace to keep warm in the evening. The cabin had everything you need and more.
One of a kind
Instant relaxation on the deck along a babbling brook.
Great cabin in a scenic location
My husband and I had a great vacation at this cabin. We were greeted by the owner who made us feel welcome. She added her personal touches with fresh baked goods and a fresh pitcher of water with lemons and oranges. The house is lovely and has all the comforts of home. We were greeted by deer and turkeys every day. The rock wall was beautiful and the sound of the water was very soothing. The location of the cabin was centrally located to all of the attractions that we wanted to see. Overall, we had a great stay at this lovely cabin.
The Creek Front Cabin is located in a small community just off scenic Rimrock Highway called Hisega. This neighborhood dates back to 1908 and it was named after the first letters of six women who visited here then: Helen, Ida, Sade, Ethel, Grace & Ada. The full story of how Hisega transformed over the years awaits you at the cabin. The Creek Front Cabin is centrally located in the Black Hills, making it a perfect spot to travel to and from all the "must-see" attractions on your list. Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, Rapid City, Sturgis, and Deadwood are all within 15 to 40 minutes of the cabin. Whether you are looking to hike and explore, shop and sightsee, or just relax on the huge 40' covered deck overlooking the creek, this cabin will make your stay most enjoyable! Here is a list of our favorite places to discover … Mt. Rushmore: Explore the Sculptor’s Studio & the Lincoln Borglum Museum. There is also a nice restaurant that overlooks the Presidents, a gift shop and they have absolutely fantastic ice cream! If you are there in the evening, we highly recommend the Lighting Ceremony, a patriotic program at 9 p.m. Crazy Horse: Impressed with Mt. Rushmore? Then you will want to visit Crazy Horse Memorial because when complete, it will be so large that you can fit five Mt. Rushmore’s in it! The mission of the memorial is to protect and preserve the culture, tradition & living heritage of the North American Indian. Don’t miss the 20 minute video in the Center & the many displays, restaurant and gift shop. If you are visiting the Black Hills on either the first weekend in June or the last weekend in September, the kind folks at Crazy Horse allow visitors to climb to the top where you can actually stand in front of Crazy Horse’s face – a great photo opportunity! Custer State Park: Take a drive through Custer State Park – the scenery alone is one of a kind! Don’t miss Sylvan Lake & the Needles Highway. The park is famous for its bison herds, scenic drives, historic sites, and hiking trails. Swim, fish, or kayak in one of Custer State Park’s five scenic lakes. We recommend lunch or dinner at the Custer State Game Lodge (President Calvin Coolidge’s “summer white house”). If you are visiting the last weekend in September, don’t miss the annual Buffalo Round-up, where you can watch cowboys as they roundup & drive the herd of approximately 1,300 buffalo – very exciting! Deadwood: The entire city of Deadwood is on the National Historic Register and its extensive Victorian architecture is unique to the West. Head over to Saloon #10 & see the chair Wild Bill Hickok’s was sitting in when he met his fate. If you’re feeling lucky, you can gamble in one of the many casinos & if it’s live entertainment you’re after, check out the many events going at the Deadwood Mountain Grand. Hill City: This quaint, little town is best known for its fine art galleries, museums & wineries. It is also home to the Museum @ Black Hills Institute where you will view an extensive collection of dinosaurs including “Stan”, one of the most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex ever found. Love railroads? Visit the South Dakota Railroad Museum. Want a family fun excursion? Take a ride on the 1880 train. We recommend Prairie Berry Winery (home of the famous “Red Ass Rhubarb” wine) for free wine tasting, followed by lunch or dinner at the Alpine Inn, a quaint little German restaurant that is so popular you need to be there very early (11 a.m. – lunch or 5 p.m. dinner) as they don’t take reservations and the lines can be quite long in the summer months. They also don’t take credit cards, so take cash or check (an ATM is available on site) Rapid City: Visit downtown Rapid City starting at Main Street Square for many great shops and restaurants. We recommend the President’s Trivia Tour & the Summer Nights event happening every Thursday night during the summer. Need a place to take small children? Head over to Storybook Island – lots of fun and it’s free! Sturgis: Come during the famous Sturgis Motorcycle rally held in August if you love cruising around on your motorcycle, live music, and hangin’ with other bikers! Spearfish Canyon: Take a drive through scenic Spearfish Canyon. Its narrow, 1,000 foot walls are among the most spectacular scenery in the Black Hills & are more ancient than the Grand Canyon. It is also a spectacular place to explore by foot with several walking paths & hiking trails. Don’t miss Roughlock Falls and we recommend lunch at the Latchstring Inn Restaurant. The Badlands: Discover the rugged beauty where you will see striking geologic deposits that contain one of the world’s richest fossil beds. We recommend a drive through the park with a stop for lunch & shopping at Cedar Pass Lodge or hike one of the trails then lunch at Wall Drug! Questions? Contact me!
