I am South Dakota born and raised. I am definitely a people person. I love to visit with people from other parts of the USA and other countries. I moved to the Black Hills in 1983 and I love this beautiful place. We live just across the fence from the rental because this is very beautiful property and we have more acreage here. I adore the flora and fauna of the hills. We are ATV riders and there are lots of logging roads and trails to explore. I can offer assistance to those interested. Please come to see us. I would very much like to meet you.

Sincerely,

Susan Merriman

Our favorite spot in all of South Dakota is in the Black Hills. The Custer area suited us the best. This area offered more a of diverse lay of the land.

Peace, quiet and beauty of this area. Located only 3 1/2 miles from Custer, SD on an oil road. Only 2 tenths of a mile of Gravel to the rental.

Great Pines Guest House is centrally located to all the main attractions in the Black hills. Rental is only 35 minutes from Mt. Rushmore. Custer State Park is only a few miles from the rental.

Large decks with great views of mountains and beautiful wild flowers. Plenty of deer, turkeys and other wildlife to see.

A private Hot tub is located in a Gazebo on the main deck. Great views from all the windows and sliding glass doors.

Fantastic Thanksgiving Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
We contacted the owner initially by e-mail and then by phone. Susan was more than accomodating and easy to work with in scheduling and arranging our family get away, as we had to reach a consensus amongst all of us in Minnesota and Colorado. The location was great for some site-seeing. The home is beautiful, exceptionally clean, well maintained, and equipped with pretty much everything we needed to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for the 6 adults and 3 kids. The laundry set up there was an added plus as well as the internet access for those who wanted to check their e-mail or other things. I look forward to trying to do this again, as if the weather is cooperative (as it was during our stay), it is an extremely enjoyable time to be out in the Black Hills. I would do another stay at this place in a heartbeat! Thank you, Susan!

Excellent location and House

  • 5 of 5
This house is perfect!! Well maintained, clean and equipped. The laundry room was an added bonus. We stayed two weeks and loved every minute of our stay. It was a great home base, especially the hot tub after long rides. Susan has thought of everything, including a book of restaurants, sightseeing, etc. The computer and Wi-Fi were wonderful for mapping our day trips. We would definitely recommend this house, and plan to return soon.

Great Pines Guesthouse

  • 5 of 5
Guesthouse was very clean! Hot tub was great! Everything was perfect! We were able to relax on the deck and in the hot tub in the mornings and evenings.
Kitchen had everything we needed and we were able to grill outside on the gas grill for dinners. More than enough room inside and out. Grand kids could run off energy in all the space outside.
Thank you so much, Susan!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation in Custer for Thanksgiving was great! The house was even better than the pictures depicted. We especially enjoyed the beautiful kitchen, the solitude, and the hot tub. Sue even furnished the roasting pan for our Thanksgiving turkey. Sue was especially prompt and helpful with all my questions.We would encourage anyone to contact Sue when they spend time in the Custer area.
