About the property

Family Friendly Vacation Home Near Hill City

Peaceful creek side home on a paved road in the heart of the Black Hills just 3 miles south of Hill City. Relax on the large deck and listen to the running creek in the front yard then cozy up to the wood fireplace in the family room when it's cool. Perfect home away from home close to Mt. Rushmore, 1880 train, Crazy Horse, Mickelson Trail, Custer State Park, and anything you wish to see in the Black Hills as this is centrally located making it easy for day trips. An ideal spot for family vacations, exploring the back roads of the Hills on atv's with trails just up the road or hiking the Mickelson trail nearby. Motorcycle riders love our place since it's all paved roads. Our home provides you with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Master bedroom has it's own bathroom and walk out deck overlooking the creek. Sofa sleeper and bunk beds in the family room. Fully furnished kitchen, but need to bring your own food. Gas grill, tv and DVD player. Bedding provided.

About Melissa Nelson

We love riding motorcycles around the Black Hills and were looking for a home that we could stay in while riding, or visiting with our family then rent when we are not there. We found many homes but most were on gravel. This property is on a paved road that also gives us the peacefulness of the Black Hills. The creek in the front yard was the deal maker for us. We enjoy our time just the two of us and also when we bring our 4 grown children to visit. Come visit God's country.

Why Melissa Nelson chose Hill City

Relaxing flowing creek on property, paved road, close to Hill City.

Perfect mountain retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This home is located just a few minutes from Hill City, perfect location to all that the Black Hills area has to offer! The home itself offered lots of space for getting together with friends, yet plenty of privacy when you wanted to read a book. The kitchen had everything you'd need to cook or bake. While the exterior of the home is very mid-century modern, the décor is very "mountain cabin-esque" and made us feel right at home. Use caution when crossing the bridge in the driveway so you don't bottom out like we did the first time!! After that, we were aware! Great place! We'll come back!

Nice private location, pretty setting.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Black Hills at this house; the owner was very helpful and pleasant. The house was well stocked, plenty of towels and extra blankets, cooking and dining implements, along with several tour books and pamphlets, and a nice notebook summarizing area recommendations. The owner, Melissa, also sent an email prior to our arrival with some local recommendations. She was very responsive to questions before we arrived, and happened to be in town when we were there so she stopped by during our stay to make sure everything was ok. The only downside is no A/C, but there are numerous fans throughout the house, and it gets quite cool in the evening so even on the hot days in July that we were there, sleeping was pretty comfortable.

The property was great. It is in an excellent location and was stocked with everything my family of 7 needed! We thoroughly enjoyed our mornings and evenings out on the deck while listening to the creek. Melissa was great to work with. We would highly recommend this cabin to others!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you and your family had a fun time at our cabin! Sitting by the creek is a great way to end a full day of exploring. Hope to see you again in the future.
