About Sam and Linda Brown
"We look forward to meeting all of our vacationers who will visit the beautiful Black Hills. Again we are reminded of our gratitude for the past wonderful years which we were blessed to enjoy, and for all the new friends we made because they chose to stay with us." —— Owners Sam and Linda Brown reside in the structure, completely separate from your cabin-style accommodation which has your own private entrance. —— A photo in the photo album shows the front of LITTLE PRAIRIE (brown with antique tools displayed). LITTLE PRAIRIE is located around back of the property and is reached via a boardwalk bordered by Nanking cherry bushes and wild chokecherry bushes, which simulates a short walk in the woods. —— We fairly recently remodeled the street-visible Walnut Avenue and East Main Street sides of our business, creating more of a storefront presence (on the East Main Street end), with a log-railed deck for guests and customers to enjoy. These efforts unexpectedly earned us the Community Pride Award from the Hill City Area Chamber of Commerce. —— Black Hills Home Cabins is also known to a diversity of travelers as Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast about which over the years many satisfied customers have taken time to write genuinely fond online reviews and/or heart-warming notes in the guest book on the cleanliness, comfort and friendliness as well as the excellent location of our established hospitality business. We have in the last few years begun renting our guest nests as In-Home Cabins (at lower rates than the bed and breakfast rates), mostly due to the happy expressions of our guests who often referred to their space as their CABIN! Our transitioning tends more and more to Vacation Rental By Owner. So, there you have a little history of the way our business has developed over the years. —— All aspects of this diverse business property are under the auspices of Smiling Bear, LLC
Why Sam and Linda Brown chose Hill City
We love that our property is in the middle of this quaint mountain town, especially since Hill City is so friendly and homey, with easy access to the Mickelson Trail, as well as brimming with history. And we love the central location in the beautiful Black Hills National Forest. Hill City truly is the HEART of the Hills! From our corner we have so many delightful choices for recreational direction that we often park at the stop sign and inquire of each other, 'Which way should we go?' One of our favorite things to do is to take the scenic drive to Sylvan Lake and hike around the lake, soaking in the beauty from granite vantage points along the way. Another favorite is to take the scenic drive along Mount Rushmore Road and park at Horsethief Lake, where we can begin at the boardwalk for a hike around the lake. Serene and beautiful! Often on Sunday afternoons, we will pick a way to go to Custer State Park, where we may begin our adventure with a nap...then view buffalo and other wildlife, and go for a nature walk.
What makes this Cabin unique
ANTIQUES SHOP and ESPRESSO BAR — On the East Main Street side of our place we take pleasure in operating our Smiling Bear Antiques Shop and Espresso Bar. These may be amusing and unique additions to your shopping experience in Hill City. Enjoy one of our popular espresso-based beverages (such as our signature Wild Chokecherry Latte or Mom's Caramel Macchiato) or a cooling frappe or healthy smoothie while browsing for that peculiar widget or whatsit that appears only in your dreams. Or stretch your imagination for how to repurpose a wonderful fun äbjekt you could find here! Usual shop hours are 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. M-Tu-W-Thu-F-Sa, May 15 thru Oct 15. However, since our nightly rental business is primary, guests may feel free to call if we happen to be closed during the noted hours, and if possible we will accommodate your desire to shop or enjoy something from our Espresso Bar. —— All aspects of this diverse business property are under the auspices of Smiling Bear, LLC
