About the property

3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms

Looking for a beautiful escape in the woods with opportunities to hike right from your front door? Look no further than the Southern Hills Retreat. This home is located on 5 private acres, 3 bedrooms (1 queen and 2 full size beds) and 2 bathrooms with use of the garage. It is a cozy and modern home with everything you need in one place.

Note: There are 3.5 miles of gravel which makes this a difficult home to ride a motorcycle to. The rate for this home during the Sturgis Rally is discounted as it's not ideal for motorcyclists.

Master bedroom is downstairs and has a queen size bed with an attached 3/4 bathroom

Second bedroom is upstairs with a full size bed

Third bedroom is upstairs with a queen size bed

Second bathroom is located on the main level by the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms

Private yet conveniently located, lovely home!

The house had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable,well appointed. Wildlife to watch from all sides and a beautiful garden to enjoy. Conveniently located though hidden from distractions. Would highly recommend this rental while in the area.

Great Property!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great stay at this property. It is close to everything! The only thing that we didn't care for was the over 3 mile gravel road drive. House had everything we needed and it was very well maintained!

Just what we wanted!

The property was as advertised and more! Clean, comfortable and perfect for relaxing after a busy day of exploring the area. Loved sitting on the deck & watching the deer. We very much recommend it!
