  • Charming and lovely! We will be back!


    We loved this house! So cozy and homey. It’s definitely an older house but that meant there was so much charm to it! It was a great size, there were plenty of games, books and movies available for our use. The pool table was a great added amenity. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We especially loved that a dog crate was available for use. We plan to come back with a bigger group and we know that the house will be able to fit everyone comfortably. Oatin was so kind, called to ensure we were comfortable and suggested things to do around town. The welcome book also had great recommendations. It’s in a great location, we could walk to many places plus an easy drive to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and Black Hills. We can’t wait to visit again in the summer!

  • Disappointing


    The location of this property is perfect for touring the Black Hills. However, as mentioned in other recent comments, the house is old and needs a lot of work, particularly the bathrooms. They are very old and in need of major work - no shower head in the basement shower, kitchen faucet on the master bath sink, torn shower curtain, among other things. The kitchen and living area were fine, but I expected something more up to date for the amount of money we paid. Very disappointed.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Denise, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We're so glad you enjoyed the location!
    - We strive to make our 100-plus-year-old house as comfortable as possible for our guests. Additionally, we use local, professional photographers to make sure that the listing photos correctly reflect the property.
    We truly go above and beyond and are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!

  • Good location and plenty of room!


    Our family of nine enjoyed a nice weekend together. It was very convenient to have the fenced in area for the dogs!

    The kitchen had everything we needed, and it was nice to have three bathrooms!

    After the deck is completed, it will be even a better place to stay!

  • Cute place!


    Very cute place which made a great base for our family as we spent time exploring the black hills. Good sized kitchen for cooking.

    Was disappointed that the decks pictured were not usable due to being under construction of some kind.

    No air conditioning
