Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Loved having the extra room to spread out and appreciated all the extras-coolers, beach towels, laundry facilities, and even the little extras like spices, sugar, coffee, tin foil, baggies etc-we downsized to a smaller car before this vacation and it was nice not to have to pack all the extras we usually tote along. Description of the cabin and pictures were spot on but you have to see the view in person to truly appreciate how wonderful it is. Just a handful of other homes on the "mountain" make it extra nice-so peaceful and secluded. Reasonably close proximity to all the attractions in the area, plus beautiful Pactola Lake (rent a pontoon!) are added bonuses. There is a nice beach on Pactola as well as nearby Sheridan Lake that we didn't have time to visit but are nice options if you're looking to take a swim. The owners made the rental process easy and enjoyable-very professional and friendly. We had planned on making better use of the kitchen in the home but the great choice of dining establishments in Hill City and Custer won out more often. Cell reception (we have Verizon) was excellent in the home, as well as our 3G. We did need to use a computer one day to order a textbook for my daughter so we just went to the library in Hill City-tiny but friendly folks and free computer use for visitors. The layout of the cabin wouldn't work for everyone, which the owners are quite upfront about, but for us it was the perfect place to stay and I hope we have the opportunity to stay again.
