About Marcy and Ken

Recently retired and now living permanently in the Black Hills.

Marcy and Ken purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Marcy and Ken chose Custer

In 2005 my husband and I were looking for a place in the Black Hills for when we were able to retire that was centrally located to all that the Hills have to offer. We built this cabin and used it for our many vacations to the Black Hills. Being adjacent to the national forest we have enjoyed many beautiful hikes and abundant wildlife just outside our door way. Since we recently completed the building of our permanent home we are now able to share this piece of heaven with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Black Hills National Forest 100' from the cabin. Deer and turkey stop by for a visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guest book:

The cabin was a bonus on our stay! You guys thought of everything a person needed. Really enjoyed the morning view with coffee. Seeing the wildlife was relaxing. The cabin was cozy, our family was very relaxed when we walked in! The board games were a plus. A very peaceful and enjoyable stay. We will come back again and recommend anyone to stay. The weekend was just not enough time. Thanks you guys

Perfect escape in the country

  • 5 of 5

Just 5 miles out of Custer and it was a perfect stop to base our vacation to South Dakota. Mt. Rushmore, The Badlands, The Black Hills, Devil's Tower - we tried to do it all and the location was great. Ken and Marcy were very helpful in answering all my last minute questions and made us feel at home. The house is just what we needed - comfy bed, well equipped kitchen and a nice bath to shower after a long day of adventure. Don't let the fact that there isn't a stove scare you. We had everything we needed to cook dinner on the gas grill and bacon and eggs for breakfast in the electric skillet and hot plate. You won't be disappointed.

Thoroughly enjoyed our vacation with 3 grandsons at this centrally located property

  • 5 of 5

We were kinda worried initially about renting a 1 bedroom cabin with 3 grandkids but the property was actually larger in real life than the pictures showed. Ken and Marcy had it well stocked with all the essentials from dishes to pots and pans and towels. We just added the food and making memories. The grill was great as most our vacation time it was nice out so we utilized that often. The boys utilized the back swing when we allowed them electronic time. They all sat together and played games. There is a really nice front porch that is covered and 4 patio chairs and a patio table for evening chats and relaxation. We saw turkeys and deer right in the back yard. We also had a routine of driving the 4 mile road each evening we were home at twilight. We would drive the road and count deer. The most we counted was 85 in the 4 mile stretch. Pretty impressive even coming from a deer rich state our selves. The best thing was all the attractions that are close! We planned out our days and just went different directions each day. We would definitely recommend this cabin to our friends and family that are planning a vacation in the Black Hills. Very comfortable with everything needed for your home away from home. Thank you!
