About Mark or Margaret VanDerWerff

We built our dream vacation home to share with family and friends in 2001. As South Dakota natives, we have roots in the Black Hills (Sturgis and Rapid City), but live in eastern SD, near Mitchell. Our family (children & grandchildren) have created many memories in this cabin...and we hope you'll create your own family treasures. May your time here strengthen the bonds of friend and family, and bless you with rest and relaxation.

Mark or Margaret VanDerWerff purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Mark or Margaret VanDerWerff chose Lead

We love the Black an active outdoor family, the decision to have a home on Terry Peak was an easy one. We do it all: including skiing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, hiking, sledding, fishing, golfing...the list is pretty long, actually. For all these reasons and more, we love our cabin in the Hills.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is set apart because of its unique floor plan. We saw a lot of cabins before we decided on this special property. With 3 bedrooms on separate floors (and each with its own full bathroom) we can give our guests and family the private space (and quiet) that they deserve when vacationing. We also have a private lot, with no neighbors on 3 sides. Love that!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Our host provided an abundance of information regarding our place of stay in a pre-arrival packet which ensured a smooth stay throughout. They were responsive with any issues that came up and the location was perfect, close to both Terry Leak and Lead. ”

Great property

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay at the Dutch Cabin. Had everything we needed, except some great windows to enjoy the beautiful Black Hills. They had just received a great sum of snow. It was cleared, but the driveway is steep and despite 4wheel drive, it was a struggle at times.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the cabin. We enjoyed the 4 bedrooms where everyone could find a bed and the kids loved the downstairs with tv, foosball, and hot tub. Enjoyed the large table where we could all congregate to eat and play cards. Loved the trees and privacy even though some construction going on in the area. We had a relaxing stay.

Beautiful home with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for our summer family vacation! The cabin had everything we needed. The neighborhood was quiet and was nice to be away from the big touristy city. We loved all our drives in and out of the cabin through the Black hills to go see the sights. The views were amazing. Relaxing in the morning before we headed out and at night after the kids went to sleep we really enjoyed sitting on the wrap around deck! It felt like you were in a tree house! We recommend this cabin rental to anyone looking for a relaxing stay outside of the city but close enough to enjoy the tourist sights! We will come back for sure!
