"We were initially a little leery about staying so far from Rapid City, but after just one day, fell in love with "The Cabin on the Green". The setting is very idyllic nestled among trees with a fantastic view of green pastures and the Eastern horizon from our porch chairs. No traffic noise, no helicopters overhead, no loud neighbors or barking dogs. And did I mention, no light pollution so one can study the stars at night.
The cabin was comfortably furnished and nicely decorated in the manner befitting a cabin in the woods. We loved having a no fuss, no muss fireplace and the little space heater for the bathroom. My son has arthritis and is from Hawaii so is sensitive to the cold. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans. I wish there were some coffee filters there for the 1st morning as that is not something that I thought to bring/buy.
The major thing that my son (age 40) and his cousin missed was having cell phone service. He said that he was glad that we chose this place and that everything was perfect except for the absence of cell phone service. The wi-fi connection was apparently not the greatest, but he said that was a good thing because he didn't have to do any work. He was the only one that watched TV and would have preferred
a sports channel to Fox.
The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and accommodated our every need. They were kind enough to "leave the light on for us" every night.
Although the driving distances are a little far, the scenery is beautiful and there is virtually NO TRAFFIC (yay!!). In 5 days we saw Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Jewel Cave, the Mammoth site, Deadwood for dinner (?# 10 Society Club), the wildlife loop (LOTS of wildlife), the Needles Highway, a whole day right in Rapid City (Journey museum and the geology museum). Be sure to eat at Wobbly Bobby and the Firehouse Grill. Only one disappointing restaurant in Hill City, but that was because we had already eaten at the Bun and Burger and The Buglin Bison (?) in Custer - both excellent, but VERY crowded."
