  • Amazing


    Fabulous vacation home in the Black Hills! We enjoyed our stay there very much. We loved how it was so close to Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Custer State Park, and Deadwood. The fact that it was also snuggled in between Hill City and Keystone, there was never a shortage of good places to grab a quick bite to eat, or enjoying a romantic dinner in the mountains. Would highly recommend this little peace of paradise to everyone!

  • Summer Trip!


    Hakuna Matata Cabin was perfect for our family trip! We had 3 kids and 5 adults and the space worked great. Everything was clean and the location was very convenient. We brought our dog too and there was a nice road to walk her every day. Hot tub was an added bonus! Thanks for making our first trip to South Dakota one to remember!
