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 Custer

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!

Lovely setup and convenient to sites

  • 5 of 5

This is really a lovely home away. The cabin is not as secluded as I might have expected, given my history of staying in cabins in the Black Hills, but the way it is oriented makes you forget that it is located right off of 385. It’s quiet and peaceful.

The space is decorated with a homey touch. The little things are there: plenty of towels, garbage cans in the bedrooms, and a well stocked kitchen. (A $6 package of butcher knives and a salad spinner from the Dollar Store in Custer would be great additions, but I took the ones I bought on to our next cabin in Lead!) The beds are soft. Deer graze in the field beyond the picture windows, and jackrabbits and chipmunks will likely cross your path.

Speaking of paths, the Mickelson Trail is right outside the door, so bring your bikes or running shoes.

A coded entry eliminates concern about losing keys or getting locked out. The WiFi worked well.
