  • Beautiful cabin!


    Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay at this cabin. Everything was exactly as expected - clean, spacious, and just lovely. The kids enjoyed the cows and wild turkey on the mountain, and we loved that we could easily get to Pactola Lake almost every evening. I would echo other reviewers about arriving during daylight hours - it's a very, very windy trip up the mountain, but so worth it. Also, we did not have cell reception at the cabin (we have US Cellular), but it sounds like most others did. I would definitely recommend this cabin - we had a wonderful time!

    What a beautiful cabin. It made a perfect base of operations for our week of adventures in the Black Hills area. It was perfect for my Girl Scout troop, with 4 bedrooms, lots of room to spread out. Having the kitchen was a game changer for our budget, we were able to make all our own meals (make your own breakfast, bag lunches, and come back and relax over a home made dinner). The mountain cabin was quiet and peaceful - the drive up was a little adventurous but a fair trade off for the view.

    Thank you for sharing your family home.
