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 Black Hills

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.

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

Our stay was great, exactly what we were looking for!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Custer and our stay was exactly what we were looking for. The house had everything we needed and served us well. It was close to Custer and yet far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle of town. It's a very peaceful and relaxing place and would recommend it to anyone.

Very comfortable home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Heart of the Black Hills cabin June 14-17. Very nice distance to Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, ATV trails and shopping in Custer. The Needles Highway was a pretty cool experience too! The cabin was the perfect size for the two of us and, I would think, plenty of room for four. I really fell for the vintage kitchen table and chairs!! We used the large gas grill and also enjoyed eating out in Custer. We saw a lot of deer and long eared rabbits that we don't see where we live. I would recommend the cabin for a nice stay to enjoy the Black Hills area! Thank you Marcy and Ken!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! We want our guests to feel at home so our cabin includes the table I sat at growing up on the farm. We love sharing the deer and Jack Rabbits with our guests.

Quiet & Peaceful

We tried something new this year for our yearly trip to Custer and are really glad we found this cabin. The cabin feels very homey and is well stocked. Ken and Marcy were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. We will come back here again and will definitely recommend this cabin to our family and friends.

Wonderful cabin, location, and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Marcy and Ken were gracious hosts and provided many extra conveniences that helped us feel at home. Conveniently located just outside Custer meant we were close too many of the great parks and attractions. It was great to be able to grill out each night too. We highly recommend this cabin to other travelers.
