About Amanda Bench

My name is Amanda Bench, my husband Darren and I recently bought and remodeled the houses next door and turned them into vacation rentals. My passion is hospitality and going above and beyond to ensure the comfort of all of my guests. When you arrive you will be greeted with fresh baked cookies, complimentary snacks, and every amenity you will need for a relaxing stay. I hope you choose us when visiting Wyoming!

Amanda Bench purchased this house in 2011

Why Amanda Bench chose Newcastle

I just love it's small town qualities and homey feel of Newcastle! It is at the foot of the Black Hills and is just the perfect distance from all the amazing attractions. Hiking, biking, camping, lakes, rivers, you name it, it's here!

What makes this house unique

These sweet suites are the perfect relaxing getaway....there is a swing out back with a water feature to enjoy your morning coffee, and 3 decks to relax and enjoy friends and family

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for a relaxing stay during our anniversary getaway! I grew up in Newcastle and really enjoyed having such a comfy and homey place to stay for our visit. Thanks again for everything!

Clean, cozy, comfortable and close to area attractions

  • 5 of 5

Walked in and found everything in order, clean, comfortable and cozy. The house had a vintage feel to it that reminded me of my grandmothers house, which brought back many fond memories. We enjoyed the fire pit, hot tub and grill. The entire family slept well each night we were there. The beds were comfortable and we had all the amenities we needed at the house. We had a great time at our stay, including visits to Crazy Horse, Mount Rushmore and Devils Tower!

By far, the best place to stay in Newcastle

  • 5 of 5

We were in Newcastle for two nights while we were at a baseball tournament. With my family of five, traditional rooms don't fit that well. We took a chance that VRBO would have something and Newcastle and we were thrilled with what we found.

From the moment we made the reservation, the host, Amanda, was a pleasure to deal with. She responded quickly to all of my questions and was accommodating in every way. On to the property...

There are two cabins to choose from. We chose the one in the "back". The parking is a little tight for a vehicle as large as our Toyota Sequoia, but we could have left it out of the carport, if needed. Amanda really thought of everything. She had fresh chocolate chip cookies on the counter and had thoughtfully turned music and the A/C on so that it would be pleasant for us. My kids loved the (small) hot tub in the back and my wife and I enjoyed sitting on the swing and taking in the view as the kids played and the sun set. There is a fun little playhouse in the back that Amanda had furnished with sleeping bags, if my kids had wanted to camp out. The property was extremely clean and well kept. The bedrooms and bathrooms are not large, but were fine for a few days. I'm 6-3 so one word of warning would be to watch your head in the basement. Some ducts there are more like 6'0", but after one small smack on the head, I learned to duck. The bathrooms were well stocked with all the amenities including things like makeup wipes, bathrobes, slippers, cotton balls and Q-Tips. There is not central air, but the two window units on the main floor seemed to keep it cool enough. The basement is a little warm, but she has provided fans so that my kids slept comfortably.

Overall, our impression was that of being impressed. Since we live in Wyoming and are in Newcastle often for various activities, I know we'll be back. I am hesitant about posting such a positive review, since the other parents on our team were jealous of our find and might try to beat us out next time. Do not hesitate on reserving this property!!!

Feels just like home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights, 4 days. When we arrived, we had a meat and cheese tray, goodies for my son, and morning treats waiting for us. The rooms were very comfortable and the the bathrooms were better then a hotel room. The homey feel this place gives you makes you never want to leave. My Rushmore and other cute tourist places are a short drive away. W can not wait to go back and visit. Amanda is such an amazing host. We loved staying here!

A Sweet Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and my daughter and her husband stayed at Sweet Country Suites for one night and had an excellent stay. The arrangement is perfect for two couples, or families that want two bathrooms. The owner was very accommodating and kept in touch with us when we were getting close to arrival. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it. The decor is very charming.
