Beautiful home centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mainstay Inn Hill City. Jim was very accommodating to any of our needs everything was provided for us that we would need. I highly recommend Jim and his beautiful home to stay in on your visit to the Black Hills.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our family. The house had more than everything we needed. We enjoyed the location as well- the ability to walk to town as we wished. Even though right on main street it was quiet. The host was super nice and available if we needed anything.

Great rental!!! Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to South Dakota with another family (4 adults/6 kids total). There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax, play games, read etc. while there. Hill City is the perfect location when venturing out and exploring. The city itself was adorable and we enjoyed the shopping as well as the restaurants. Jim and June were very accommodating. We were sad to leave but when we do plan our next South Dakota trip we will be sure to rent the Main Stay!!! ❤️

Great house with perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The house & yard were clean & spacious! More than enough room for the adults to lounge around inside or out, while the little ones played! Nicely located within walking distance to the downtown. Perfectly located near many of the Black Hills attractions. Jim was a great host & everything was provided for! We would definitely go again!

Perfect home/location for our families of 6 adults, 3 small children and a dog!!

  • 5 of 5

From our first arrival until our departure, Jim and June were VERY attentive of all our needs. We needed a stroller and high chair, it was provided. The tire on my husband's bike tire was flat, a pump appeared to fix it. We ran out of ice, Jim brought some from his own home. They went above and beyond any homeowner we have ever experienced before. The home and backyard were perfect for our family. My daughter's family of 5 took the upstairs and it was ideal so they could put the children to bed at night and the rest of the family could talk/laugh/watch tv without waking them. The firepit, hot tub and backyard were also a hit for the whole gang, safe for kids and dogs alike, and a beautiful little oasis complete with rose bushes. The kitchen is fully stocked with cook ware to plates/glasses/knives. (maybe better than ours at home!) Plenty of room to chill waters for the hikes that our family took. The location within the Black Hills could not have been better for us as we wanted to see all the "hot spots" - Rushmore, Custer loop, Sylvan Lake, Bear Country, Needles Highway, etc. It's a little bit of a drive up to Spearfish, but well worth it and very doable. Took the scenic route there and fast loop home through Rapid City. Downtown Hill City is cute with several good "treat shops". We loved Turtle Town for the candy/ice cream and Mountain Treats for the bumbleberry pie! The handbag shop was a hit with our granddaughter. Also, if you like to bike, you are right off the George Mickelsen Trail which is 109 miles long - we wish we'd had more time to explore that. Overall, this home was ideal for us and we would highly recommend it to all. Oh, and lastly, TWO washers and dryers made it nice to not have a pile of laundry to come home to.

The best place we have stayed!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was first of all beautiful but also perfect for our big family! The location is downtown Hill City which was so nice to walk down to the shops. It felt like a little oasis because the large fenced yard was so private and so nice for the kids to run around and be safe!! Thank you Jim and June!! We are so so so appreciate!!
