Overview

About the property

Black Hills 3BR/2BA Log Home On 17 Acres. Very Private

Custom Log Home, 2100 sq. ft. home in very private 17 acre meadow completely surrounded by National Forest. Beautiful views with no highways, neighbors or noisy tourists in sight. Near hiking, biking, horse trails, within 1-2 miles from Mickelson Trail, Golf course, fishing lake. Within 10-20 miles of Custer State Park, Needles highway, Mt. Rushmore National Monument, Jewel Cave National Monument, Wind Cave National Park, Sylvan Lake, Stockade Lake, Bismark Lake, Legion Lake.

Amenities: 3 bedroom/2 bath, Fully equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, washer/dryer. Pellet stove and gas fireplace, covered porch with beautiful view and gas BBQ grill. Family room with TV with satellite, DVD and VCR movies, games,

The cabin has direct access to millions of acres of trails and beautiful scenery.

Within 1-2 miles is the Mickelson trail which runs over 100 miles from Deadwood to Edgemont. The Hills most beautiful lakes, Sylvan, Legion, Bismark, and Stockade are all within 6-15 miles for great fishing, swimming or boating. Custer and neighboring Hill City have tons of unique shops and galleries. The local golf course is within 1 mile, or drive to Hot Spring to the golf course voted '#1 9 hole golf course in North America' by Golf Digest.

Of course Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial are within 5-20 minutes. Custer State Park, 6-7 miles east, has one of the largest free roaming Buffalo herds in the world, as well as wild burros, big horn sheep, prairie dogs, deer etc. In October is the Buffalo Roundup with a 2 day Arts Festival. Visitors can watch the actual round-up of the Buffalo. They are sorted and some are sold at the Buffalo Auction later in the fall.

My favorite is the caves-- Wind Cave National Park and Jewel Cave National monument.

Jewel Cave National Monument is 7 miles and Wind Cave National Park is 15 miles and are both world class caves with scenic and spelunking tours.

Bikers --We are located 2 miles outside of Custer and about 75 scenic miles from Sturgis. There is about 3/4 mile of well maintained gravel road from the highway to the cabin. There is a large barn w/concrete floor to store bikes and trailers.

Wonderful Choice

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all, views, wildlife and serenity. It is located close to all activities with easy access. It is tucked away in your own little corner of the Black Hills, yet close enough to all. The home was beautiful with all the comforts of home. Everything was very clean and many amenities were avaliable. The owners really made us feel welcome and at home. We will definately return to the Black Hills and this home will be our first choice for base camp. I would highly recommend this home to my friends and to anyone who just needs and quiet place to relax.

Perfect!

The property and house were everything promised and more. Beautiful, peaceful and accommodating. Jody is a great VRBO owner and wonderful to work with too. We loved the town and was centrally located to almost everything. We will be back!

Great summer vacation property

  • 5 of 5

Great property! Quiet, wildlife, and all the amenities of a modern home. Jukebox was fun! Couldn't get pinball machine to work but really didn't phase us. Bikes on property. BBQ needs some tune up too, but works. And Custer state park is so fun, lots of things to do very close to this property (Mt Rushmore, crazy horse, jewel cave, hikes, drives, and northern hills are worth it for a bit more driving). Nothing disappointed.

An amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed here in late May and it was the perfect cabin to come home to after a long day of exploring beautiful South Dakota! The home is spacious and comfy. Jody left a detailed binder that helped answer any questions that came up (e.g. How's to turn on fireplace/wifi access/jukebox instructions). The breakfast nook was the perfect place to start our day and snuggled in front of the pellet stove listening to the juke box was the perfect way to end it! And of course the porch was great for star gazing at night! I would highly recommend for anyone looking to explore the area.

Beautiful. Peaceful. Perfect vacation destination.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful log home on 17 acres of meadows, fields, ponds, trees, rocks and rock hills. Walking trails and a quarter mile long drive made it perfect for walking our dogs. Peaceful, tranquil, and just plain gorgeous. Surrounded by national forest with a view of big hills off in the distance, this was the perfect secluded destination yet close to town, Custer State Park, and Mount Rushmore. A true nature lovers paradise.
