About Matt Brown and Joy Falkenburg

Matt and Joy have lived in Custer for 15 years and Joy grew up in the area. They have enjoyed renting The Little Red Inn as a VRBO and are excited to offer a second property. They know the area well and want to share their love of the Black Hills with others.

Matt Brown and Joy Falkenburg purchased this house in 2015

Why Matt Brown and Joy Falkenburg chose Custer

Joy fell in love with this property from the moment she saw it. "I love the aspen trees and how it is tucked into the hillside". It is a beautiful home with all the amenities that make it wonderful. The house is beautiful inside and out. The paved driveway makes it even better. I love how close we are to Custer but I enjoy being outside the city limits and enjoy the peace and quiet.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful, clean and very nicely decorated.

Nice linens and beds.

Mature trees and plenty of room to roam.

Attached Garage

Paved entry.

Easy access to town

A comfortable home away from home

  • 4 of 5

The home is in a great location. There is a lot to see that is not too far away. We enjoyed watching the deer and other smaller creatures each day.

Beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a quiet setting, with deer wandering the neighborhood. We enjoyed the patio and grill very much. The beds were super comfortable. The hosts were extremely easy to deal with. The kitchen was very well stocked; we never lacked anything we wanted. Check-in and out was a breeze!

Very nice home and location.

  • 4 of 5

House was in a great location and really enjoyed staying at this house. Only 2 things, the water looked terrible but we were told the water was tested and was fine. The second was that there was only 1 a/c unit and if you shut any of the bedroom or bathroom doors there was no air and got warm very quickly. Otherwise it was great and really enjoyed our stay
