About Jody Landgrebe Owner/Manager

I've lived in the Custer area for 13 years and am a South Dakota native. After living out of state for 18 years, I returned to South Dakota for a more peaceful life.

Jody Landgrebe Owner/Manager purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Jody Landgrebe Owner/Manager chose Black Hills

I vacationed in the Custer area as a child, and returned to it because I've found the Custer area to be the perfect blend of rustic country living, beautiful scenery and friendly people. The town of Custer has all the shopping, restaurants and entertainment that anyone could possibly need without the frenzy of fast food, Walmarts and traffic that frazzle city folks lives.

What makes this cabin unique

I love this cabin's location, near Custer State Park and Wind Cave National park. Just 1.5 mile east is the back entrance to Wind Cave Park at an area where you can generally find herds of Buffalo and Elk. The cabin itself is very private as it is not visible from the road. Near dusk and dawn you can sometimes see elk at the front of the property near the creek area.

Great get-away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time at this beautiful cabin. We were planning on going snowmobiling but with the recent warm weather we were not able to. We enjoyed grilling out and relaxing on the deck. Everything was more than we expected. Will definitely be back when we get out to the Black Hills again.

Place was beautiful. Tucked away in the pines and exactly what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

The house itself was better than excepted and equipped with everything we needed. More than adequate room for our kids and grandkids. We all enjoyed our time and would definitely all do it again. Thank you Jody!

Beautiful property in a great location. Quiet with world-class wildlife viewing nearby.

  • 5 of 5

Our family just enjoyed a wonderful week at Jody's property in Custer. The cabin was first class, clean, cozy and very comfortable. And, Jody, as always, was informative and available. It was just what we needed - a quiet, beautiful location close to wonderful parks and wildlife. Buffalo, Elk, Coyotes, Mule Deer, Turkeys, Prairie Dogs and more. We will plan to come back in the summer months for the other side of the Custer area experience. We enjoyed long walks on the road in the valley each day and, drove to Custer State Park nearby for wildlife viewing. We also visited Hot Springs which was a nice surprise. If you know the Black Hills, you know that everything to see is really just a short drive away. We jumped over to Hill City for lunch and to Deadwood/Lead for some sightseeing. Some years back, we stayed at Jody's other Custer property and talk about it still. If you want a want a beautiful, quiet location with the best of South Dakota nature, look no further. We will be visiting again.
