Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, kitchen, patio, fire pit, mountain views

Located in the heart of the Black Hills, you’ll find Hilltop Cottage full of charm and conveniences. This home was built in the mid-1920’s by the owners of Willis Dry Goods, which was located where Carson Drugstore is today. Positioned high up you can see the city of Custer, the Custer sign (which lights up every night), mountains, sunrises and sunsets, which make for an unforgettable stay.

This home has 4 bedrooms: two on the main floor with queen beds and two on the upper floor with double beds (one has a futon and a TV with DVD/VCR and a kids' video library) and 1 full bathroom located on the main floor, towels and linens provided. Also on the main floor you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, formal dining room with French doors, comfortable living room with a 60" TV with cable, a DVD player and a video library. On the east side of the home you’ll find a large stamped concrete patio with a gas grill, fire pit with stone benches, a large yard, and a beautiful view you can enjoy while sipping your coffee or roasting marshmallows around the fire. You’ll also find a private driveway with a 20’ x 26’ carport nestled close to the house and additional parking in front of the home. There’s free WiFi throughout the home and other items to help you enjoy your stay such as roasting sticks, folding chairs, card table, board games, hairdryer, and first-hand knowledge of the area from lifetime residents of Custer!

There is no cleaning fee, we just ask that you leave the home as close to the same condition is was when you arrived.

About Miranda Boggs

Hello, my name is Miranda. My husband Adam and I are two Custer natives with a daughter. We’ve absolutely enjoyed living in this home in the beautiful Black Hills for 12 years. Although we love this charming home located in a quiet neighborhood, we’ve recently purchased some beautifully wooded acres just a few miles from town. We couldn’t bear to part with our home, so we decided to share it with other families as a vacation rental. We see the value in families having enough space to thoroughly enjoy their vacations with the convenience of cooking their own meals, private rooms, and comfortable gathering spaces. If you’re looking for a home with 1920’s character and charm with some modern updates, this is the home for you and your family!

I handle all the questions, bookings and cleaning myself. I like to meet the guests when they arrive to give them a quick tour, answer any questions they may have and offer first-hand knowledge of the area. I’m also a quick phone call or text away if there are any issues or questions.

Miranda Boggs purchased this house in 2004

Great location and cute house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Hilltop cottage. The location was perfect for all the adventures we wanted to have in South Dakota. Miranda met us and showed us the house at check in. She has a wonderfully organized binder full of information and attractions. The cottage suited our needs perfectly, we BBQ'd one night and roasted s'mores by the fire pit while enjoying the view from the yard. Completely picturesque and close to all the sights.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The Hilltop Cottage is the perfect location for all activities in the Black Hills. Perfectly situated in the heart of Custer. Home is immaculate and Miranda is a wonderful resource for restaurants, activities, etc. We had the most amazing visit and the Hilltop Cottage was a welcome retreat to return to at the end of a long day of sightseeing!

This is a great spot for exploring the black hills. Plenty of space for a family of 5, very clean and confortable. Had all the necessities and was a great location - close to major sites and also walking distance to town for food, etc.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This older but updated 4-bedroom cottage was great to stay at for our 3 day visit to the Black Hills. The cottage might be tight with a large family (only one small bathroom), but was terrific for us. We would stay again! Wish we would have taken advantage of the patio more!

High five!:):):)

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved coming home at the end of the day to this cozy Hilltop Cottage Miranda was an excellent host and answered all the questions that we had. We had a beautiful time in South Dakota and surrounding areas the beds were comfy the games were fun the fire pit was a huge bonus and only thing that we could have asked for was another bathroom would we come here again absolutely even without an extra bathroom:). Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!!! Also seeing all the deer every morning was awesome!!!
