Guestbook comments from the owner
Lynne,



Thank you so much for allowing our family to be together for the celebration of my mothers life. It was wonderful to be able to have the whole family together to remember all the good times. It would not have been the same if we had been seperated in various hotels. The view is AWESOME! and the home was so beautiful and comfortable.

The Venard family is from Murdo, SD. We travel to the vacation home when ever possible to enjoy this family retreat. The TV hardly gets turned on as we prefer sitting out on the balancies and enjoying the wildlife.

Lynne Kinsley purchased this house in 2012

We are a large family so finding this home was a dream come true. Our parents moved us six kids to South Dakota in 1971 where we owned and operated the Triple H Truck Stop for 40 years! If was always my parents dream to have a home in the Black Hills. We are just sad that our dad didn't get to enjoy this dream with us. Lyle Venard passed away in 1987, but his dream lived on in his wife and children. We are a family of 56 and still growing. We plan to enjoy this house as much as possible.

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT STAY, SOME DRAWBACKS...

  • 4 of 5
Home was beautiful, well apportioned and clean. Loved the no smoking / no pets given family allergies and cooking was very easy with some of the provided spices / basic ingredients. Awesome. Only issue was the jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom was not working.

Also, the house is very close to most attractions including Rushmore, more "touristy" Rapid City stuff like the Reptile Garden, Caves, etc., and national parks. This turned out to be a perfect location to stay for a family vacation.

Main drawbacks are:

1) This is not a private house... it's more of a duplex setup where the owners seem to move out of their house for your week, then live in and operate a business out of the other half. Strange that this is not mentioned in the listing. This meant that other people were coming and going at different hours (midnight one night) using the same driveway and third garage. It probably also means they'll be attentive if you have an issue - we didn't.

2) This also led to a significant (very significant) number of family photos, religious sayings, decor all over the house. I would say this is very different from the more "vanilla" expectation of a rental home. We had the feeling that we were staying in someone's home while they were away. Again, strange that this was not mentioned in the listing and also if we were not Christian I wonder how we would have felt about the extreme religious overtone of the home.

So, overall good, but not excellent given the above drawbacks.

Owner's Response: It was the previous owner's who lived in the house. We don't live in the house. There are new photos posted of the house. We have done some painting and put in 1 new queen and 5 new king beds!
