About Cathy Vetch or Don Vetch

We built the Cedar Home in 1995, with the vacationer in mind. We have 2 homes in the Black Hills that we rent, and have gained a strong base of repeat customers that we call friends.

Why Cathy Vetch or Don Vetch chose Lead

The Cedar Home sits on 4 acres of land. It has a pond right out front, with trout for catch and release. The views of the Black Hills are breathtaking. Most every early am and at dusk, you will see deer come down from the forest,or wild turkeys right in your yard. It is quiet and peaceful, yet close to attractions and historic towns.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family rented the Mountain Stream Estates Cedar house for a family reunion. We loved it! The location was great and the surroundings were beautiful. There were 11 adults and we thoroughly enjoyed the house. The spa was great on ten chilly evenings. We had a horseshoe tournament that went on for days. Our last night we were treated to 6 mule deer in the front yard. The house was fully equipped and we would recommend it to anyone.

Cedar House

  • 5 of 5

The Cedar House was rented by us and our 14 children, grandchildren, and spouses. It was perfect place for all ages! We had plenty of room for everyone to sleep. We did bring 2 blowup mattresses which one was put in the loft for kids to sleep. The house was roomy and perfectly laid out for all to have their own space. We were close to many activities but also had much to do at Cedar House. The hot tub, decks, wild life, fishing and beautiful scenery was awesome to just sit and relax morning or evening. Thanks for Cathy for visiting with us and answering all of our questions and for sharing your beautiful house. Our 45th anniversary will always be remembered in your beautiful state.

Great Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a family reunion at the Cedar House. Family came from Arizona, Indiana, Colorado and Nevada, along with South Dakota. We had an amazing time together. I was able to cook meals that we enjoyed together. All the pots and pans, dishes were there- even a mixer! Plenty of activities to do in the area for day trips, but my favorite was the peace of the Black Hills. We visited, shared stories and laughter in every room of the house! I loved sitting on the deck watching the wild life, and hiking in the quietness of the Hills. The children had fun...we found a frog, chipmunks, a snake and so many beautiful rocks. Our 5 year old grandson said, "Is this Grandma's party house?" We played games on the lawn, and enjoyed the hot tub. People of all ages from 70 to 2 years of age had a great time. We will go back again!

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

A little over two years ago, my family was looking for a house to rent in the Black Hills. We were coming up on a year since my father had passed away, and needed a place to get away for the weekend. We needed a house that was big enough for all 12 of us, and we wanted a house that didn't have neighbors right next door. We found exactly what we were looking for and more with the Cedar Home! The views are absolutely beautiful and the front yard is large enough for the kids to run and explore. We spend a large part of our trip playing yard games, grilling, and hiking. Every year we leave the Cedar Home with memories that will last us a lifetime. Thank you Cathy, you have been a pleasure to work with! We look forward to our stay next year!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our large family has loved meeting at the Cedar Lodge for several years. The rooms, location and surrounding activities fit with everyone's needs. The view is breathtakingly lovely! While most people take off to see the sights, I stay "home", sit on the deck and cook in the well equiped kitchen (love to cook). I have enjoyed the walking trails and the little pond in front of the home. The home sits on a large lot, and is very clean and well maintained. I recommend the Cedar Lodge as a destination to anyone who wants to spend time away from the usual and enjoys being in the heartland of the beautiful Black Hills!

We have been staying at the Cedar House for the last 4 or 5 years. We enjoy staying here because it is quiet, beautiful, and meets our needs for the 5 couples that stay there. It is close to Lead-Deadwood, easy access for 4-wheeling, great for hiking or walking, or just cool to sit in the hot-tub enjoying the scenery and outdoor life animals. It is so cool to go to sleep at night with the windows open, smelling the beautiful pine and hearing the water trickling down the stream.

We enjoy being able to cook if we so desire, which we seem to do a lot of, instead of dining out. Every year there has been an upgrade to the property. It has always been clean and well taken care of. At the end of our stay, I never have to ask who is coming back with us for the next year, we just have to tell other friends, sorry, there has been no cancellation.

Don and Cathy are very good at accommodating our needs, which is very appreciated. That is one of the reasons we keep coming back. It is a great vacation spot.

50th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this home in July, 2010. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and the entire family came to celebrate with us. It is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting. The grandchildren were aged from 6 to 24 and they had lots of fun. Our 6 year old grandson loved the lake and didn't ever want to leave the place. Lots of deer, turkeys and other wildlife were around. My grandchildren can hardly wait to go back. There is so much to do.
