About Deb Meyer

I have been living and working in the beautiful black hills of South Dakota for 11 years. I believe it is the most beautiful place I've ever lived. The scenery and fishing is fabulous!

Deb Meyer purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Deb Meyer chose Deadwood

This is the best location for getting to all the sights and sits on over 4 private acres. It's very accessible, yet secluded. This is a rare log cabin because it is built out of solid oak logs which give a very sound and warm feeling.

What makes this cabin unique

Very accessible from the front yet very private in the back. Very relaxing atmosphere.

Great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is nice, lots of space. Well stocked with everyday stuff and a lot of items you wouldn’t think to bring. Located near Deadwood was a big plus. Lots to do! We spent a few days 4 wheeling (Mad Mountain Adventures) on UTVs, easy trail access and having a garage is wonderful! We would not hesitate to book this again!

Very Warm

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great time in this home. We felt that it was centrally located to many of the fun things to do in the Black Hills and really fell in love with the area. The wildlife was absolutely prolific!! The deer and wild turkeys loved to hang out in the yard while we watched from inside. The owner was amazingly quick at getting back to me with any questions...THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

  • 4 of 5

Great separate social areas. Great location to go in every direction.

Only negatives is the water pressure and the master on the main floor did not have an en suite.

Deb was amazing. Thanks!

Nice house in a great setting.

  • 5 of 5

First off, the owner was great to work with--she was helpful and courteous in every interaction.

The home is a beautiful log home in a pretty forested setting, typical of the black hills. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, and the house is all in good working order. It is convenient to Lead and Deadwood (about 10 minutes) being right close to Nemo Road and Highway 385.

We would definitely rent the house again if we go stay in the area in the future.

Beautiful cabin- comfortable, quiet setting.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin in a beautiful setting. Very impressed with how clean everything looked. Very comfortable furniture. Warning: a lot of stairs which may make it difficult for someone with orthopedic problems. Otherwise, lots of little extras to make it a special place. Great location- close to many attractions, far enough to feel truly away!
