Pay Attention to Details
On a positive note, the cabin was spacious enough for our party of 10 and clean. The great room/kitchen area, deck and the scenery were the highlights of this cabin. On a negative note, motorcyclist must beware that there are 2.7 miles of unpaved road with very large gravel and loose ground throughout. In addition, you must drive through an active gated gold mine to access the road to the property. You may think you took a wrong road when you reach the mine area, but you did not, just keep going. Also, for all the hot natured people, there is NO air conditioning which is fine at night but the day temperature in July/August reached 95F. We had to purchase fans to cool down the cabin. Finally, the miles to Lead/Deadwood/Sturgis may be correct as stated, but if you are interested in actual time, it takes 15 minutes to get to the base of the mountain from the cabin, another 5 minutes to Lead, plus another 10 minutes to Deadwood and finally an additional 15 minutes to Sturgis.
Owner's Response: It is very important to us that our Guests are comfortable and enjoy their stay. The Hills summer temperatures on average are comfortable and air conditioning is not needed due to the elevations. The average temperature during the summer months is between 70 and 77 degrees. During this particular stay, the averages were above normal. This is the first time we have had a concern for the temperature. The cabin is on about 2 miles of gravel on a beautiful acreage. The mining area is fun to drive through and is very interesting to see; especially for the kids!! Traveling behind the mine is very easy, it's no different than driving a gravel road, but it does deter traffic which allows for a very quiet stay without the heavy tourist traffic seen throughout the Hills. Guests enjoy this benefit; and we've never had other complaints. We encourage our Guests to call us with questions or concerns during their stay so we can assist in any way we can to ensure they have the best possible stay.
