We want to “thank you” for accessing our VRBO listing and for considering booking the Cottage at Reausaw Lake (i.e. the Cottage). During your search for Black Hills accommodations, please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information.
We are the owners, and, also the property managers of the Cottage. In this capacity, we are able to give our guests individual attention. Our priority is to offer a vacation rental that is comfortable, cozy, clean and complete, at a competitive rate. Additionally, we continually strive to make Cottage improvements, such as a patio expansion / fire-pit installation and a partial kitchen remodel, to better accommodate our guests.
The value a business offers can quite often be measured by repeat customers. In 2017, we booked nine (9), repeat customers for a total of sixty-three (63) nights! This was over 50% of the one-hundred sixteen (116) total nights we booked! Through August, 2018, we have booked six (6) repeat customers for a total of thirty-eight (38) nights. This is a 42%, "repeat nights" rate! It makes us proud, and we are humbled, to know that our past guests have had such a positive, Cottage experience.
We, again, “thank you” for considering the Cottage and we look forward to serving you.
PS. And, for you repeat customers, we "thank you" for your business AND your friendship!
Doug & Denise Miller
DESCRIPTION: THE COTTAGE AT REAUSAW LAKE
Private, quiet and chocked full of diversity!! Enjoy outdoor activities in a poisonous-snake-and-wood-tick-free environment! Enjoy all types of bird and wildlife viewing, including turkey, deer and elk. This rental offers a magnificent location for the outdoor enthusiast, yet, is centrally located for easy access to all Black Hills attractions. Rapid City is 30 miles, Deadwood is 15 miles and Sturgis is 25 miles. Essentially all Black Hills attractions are located within a one-hour drive. Located on 80-privately-owned acres, the Cottage offers convenient access to the Black Hills National Forest…..a one-million-acre, public playground for your outdoor enjoyment! (Did we mention that the Cottage's location has no poisonous snakes and no ticks and very, very few mosquitoes?!! Yes, way!)
Explore the diversity of the Black Hills from your backyard!! Summertime activities include all types of recreational activities…..mountain biking via the 111-mile Centennial Trail (eight miles from the Cottage), “easy” bicycling / hiking for all ages and abilities via the 109-mile Mickelson Trail (eleven miles from the Cottage), four-wheeling via the extensive Black Hills road system and, of course, hiking, camping and fishing. Would you like to fish? We will supply the fishing equipment! The Black Hills has an extensive lake and stream system, however, Reausaw Lake is only 100 yards away. This small lake is owned by the South Dakota Game & Fish Department and stocked with trout for excellent catching success….especially enjoyable for the young angler! Or, our adult, fly-fishing guests can supply their own fly-fishing gear and have access to a private pond with hungry trout (catch and release, please)!
Wintertime activities are endless! Downhill skiing and snowboarding are thirty minutes away at the Terry Peak and Mystic Miner at Deer Mountain ski areas. Most of the Black Hills is open to off-road snowmobiling, or you can access 350-miles of groomed trails a ten-minute drive away. How about a family sledding outing? Sleds and a toboggan are available for onsite use. Further, let’s not forget that the Black Hills is excellent for snowshoeing and cross country skiing activities.
AND, most importantly, the owners of the Cottage, Doug & Denise Miller, will do everything they can to make your stay completely enjoyable! The Miller residence is located ¼ mile from the Cottage. Just look out the Cottage's back door to see our home. This close proximity allows the Millers to personally meet their guests and to be readily accessible should guests need individual and immediate attention. The Millers believe in customer service and will do all they can to make your stay an enjoyable one.
The Millers are looking forward to meeting you!
