Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath with decks to enjoy the Mountain Views

Welcome to Wind Cave Cabin!! Located on one of the highest points in the Southern Black Hills, you will find breathtaking views (you can actually see 30+ miles to Nebraska), picturesque beauty, deep ravines and rock outcroppings.

This wonderful three level vacation hot spot rests on 20 acres at the address of 26853 US Highway 385. You will see natural wild life including elk, deer, buffalo and turkey right from the front deck. Bordering Wind Cave National Park, tour the cave, go spelunking or just relax and enjoy seeing buffalo, elk, antelope and prairie dogs at play.

Privacy galore and very close to historic Hot Springs just 5 miles to town all pavement. In Hot Springs, enjoy the unique shops, sandstone buildings, the world famous Mammoth Site (an active dig of the ancient Woolly Mammoth), warm mineral waters at Evans Plunge, and a world class 18 hole Golf Course. Southern Hills Golf Course is a short undulating course that will have you using every club in your bag. Southern Hills Golf Course is a well-rounded combination of playability and aesthetic appeal that makes your golf game more enjoyable than any other course. Native Mule deer, wild turkey and cottontail rabbits abound around the course...and the occasional sighting of the wiley red-tail fox interact with the rolling terrain, ravines and majestic Ponderosa Pines at Southern Hills Golf Course.

Close to all the attractions of the Black Hills: Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, The Wild Horse Sanctuary, Custer State Park, Black Hills Playhouse, Jewel Cave and Wind Cave, to name just a few.

After a long, hard day come home and relax in our 6 person hot tub nestled in the trees. If hot tubbing is not your thing, relax on one of the many decks with incredible 360 degree views of the Southern Black Hills. Tame your hunger while enjoying the covered patio with an outdoor eating area and large BBQ grill.

Inside, a state of the art heat pump keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The kitchen and dining area have great views and come fully stocked with dishes, silverware, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster, blender, plus all the major appliances-refrigerator, stove and microwave. The Great Room has plenty of seating, windows, satellite receiver, DVR and big screen TV. The downstairs family room has all the amenities of home including a satellite receiver, DVR, big screen TV, Nintendo Wii gaming system (with games or bring your own) and a DVD player. Stay connected with wireless internet throughout.

Three bedrooms that include the loft all with queen beds will sleep six. Additional sleeping areas will accommodate air beds (provided). The master bedroom on the main floor includes a queen bed, deck with a view, and bathroom. The second bedroom on the lower level also has a queen bed and bath across the hall. The loft bedroom with queen bed has envious views of the Southern Black Hills. The two baths are fully stocked with towels and basic toiletries. You have your own laundry with full sized washer and dryer for your use.

A perfect Sturgis Rally rental, included is a huge garage and lots of trailer parking. Come visit Wind Cave Cabin. I think you will agree, this is the perfect Black Hills get away.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is exactly like it's pictures! Fully stocked with supplies, comfortable beds, clean hot tub, and spacious. A nice drive through Wind Cave park to Custer and many other attractions in the Black Hills. We would definitely stay here again.

Property is adjacent to Wind Cave Park

  • 5 of 5

I picked the home for proximity to my husband's rifle match, but the location is truly beautiful. It is adjacent to Wind Cave Park, with bison and antelope sometimes visible through the fence. Wind cave was a great site (says the claustrophobic mom of a cave-loving 10 year old), and is about a 5 minute beautiful drive through the park. They have multiple tours available, and if we visit again, I will plan ahead to reserve the specialized tours. Lot's of other attractions within driving distance kept us busy (Mammoth Site, Evan's Plunge, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Reptile Garden, Bear Country USA, and rock shops). The cabin itself has great views, and we had mule deer and turkey on the front yard.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We love the views and the wildlife as well. Wind Cave National Park has so much diversity and then it just blends into Custer State Park for even more fun. Hope you can visit again and do more tours!

Close to all the attractions of the Black Hills including Mt. Rushmore and just a few minutes drive on pavement to Hot Springs. The House borders Wind Cave Park with cave tours, incredible wild life including buffalo, elk, deer, eagles and prairie dogs. Many of these animals you will see right from the house depending on the season. It is a Short drive to Custer State Park, Angostura Reservoir and The Wild Horse Sanctuary. These all have good web sites so be sure to check them out. Hot Springs has everything you will need, grocery stores, restaurants, discount stores, unique shopping, warm water spas, golf, and historic sandstone buildings. The town is safe and beautiful just 4 miles from the house on pavement. Check out my favorite, The Mammoth Site (an ongoing archaeological dig of the Woolly Mammoth) Also in Hot Springs is Evans Plunge a natural hot water, Water Park.
