About Tim and Dawn

My husband and I live in Custer and this is our fourth vacation property. We enjoy meeting and working with people. We take pride in having a five star rating on our other properties and are striving to do so on this property also.

Tim and Dawn purchased this house in 2014

Why Tim and Dawn chose Black Hills

Tim and I designed and built this home to be a vacation rental. We enjoyed the building process and our guests have enjoyed the home. It has a beautiful view off the porch and the home is very spacious! There is a wood next to the home where the kids can play and make forts! There is a propane fireplace on the porch for your enjoyment on our nice cool evenings!

What makes this house unique

The Mickelson Trail is just off the porch! The trail runs over 100 miles. The deck is comfortable and has a propane fireplace for cool evenings and for roasting marshmallows! Nice yard and woods for the kids to play in and make great memories! The house is spacious and comfortable with all the necessities and more!

Perfect location, setting and set up!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is just perfect! It has plenty of space and everything you could need/want on your Black Hills vacation. Tim and Dawn thought of everything to make you feel at home and it is super clean. Beds are very comfortable and the washer/dryer was a huge plus for our party of 12. The only downside is that we didn't want to leave! The cabin is located right off Hwy 385 for easy access to Custer/Rushmore area on the north and Hot Springs/Wind Cave on the south. A horse farm is located directly behind the cabin and one night they were performing roping rodeo exercises which was so fun for the kids to watch. They even let us pet the horses. In addition, there is a gravel trail and rocky area for the kids to explore and climb. It was wonderful to come back to after a long day of activities. They have direct tv, however we only turned it on once because we enjoyed sitting on the patio to relax more. Some days the kids just wanted to stay at the cabin! Lots of tears when we left! Thanks Tim and Dawn, we will definitely be back!

Great Custer Option

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out very nicely for our Black Hills family vacation. In our group of 12, we had 6 adults and 6 children. (ages 5 to 12) We all slept comfortably and there was plenty of room to spread the group out. It was a perfect home base for our group to come back to and relax every evening. Tim and Dawn really have this place set up to be a home away from home. I highly recommend this beautiful house.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home in Custer! It was so clean and comfortable and was the perfect location for the seven of us to drive down to view the total eclipse then return for a wonderful dinner and glass of wine. We were also pleased to meet Dawn, an extremely helpful and friendly host. We certainly recommend this nicely decorated and perfectly located home for others who are coming to the Custer/Black Hills area!

Delightful Cabin, Feels Like Home

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was wonderfully furnished, perfect for rest and relaxation after a round of golf. Out the back patio, we watched the birds splashing in puddles and the deer racing up to the trees. We are really appreciated the fully stocked kitchen since we had a dinner party for ten.

There was a little concern from the male contingent about the comfort of the beds.

Over all, our stay was wonderful and we would be happy to return. The Black Hills are enchanting.
