Guestbook comments from the owner
Your home was wonderful and located in such a beautiful setting. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us the experience. We had no idea that there were so many things to do in the area. We explored Custer State Park and Badlands, went to Rushmore and Crazy Horse, Deadwood and Lead, drove over to Devil’s Tower, drove Iron Mountain and Needles highways, as well as stopping at whatever interested us along the way (Hill City is pretty cool), yet felt we only scratched the surface. We could easily have spent another week and, now that we know the lay of the land, plan to return to explore in more detail, especially to hike in the Black Hills.I think my favorite experience may have been when I walked out into the yard about 2:00 AM the first night we were there. The stars were amazing. I can only compare it to camping in Capitol Reef National Park in southern Utah, which boasts the darkest night skies in the lower 48. Big Horn Lodge was equally spectacular, if not more so. I felt like I was in a planetarium.Thanks again for everything. It was truly a great vacation.Jay P.S. I’ve already mentioned your place to a few equally adventurous friends.

My husband and I have been married for 39 years. Now, as empty nesters, we enjoy the freedom to head for the Black Hills and enjoy the peace and serenity our new home has to offer. It also provides us with memorable family gatherings as we are new grandparents.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

My husband and I decided to purchase the Custer home because it is bordered on three sides by Custer State Park and national forest. We enjoy hiking and now can explore thousands of acres of wilderness just a few steps from the front door. We also enjoy riding horses in the Black Hills. The pasture borders Custer State Park. We can enjoy hours of riding in the Park and never take the same trail.

When visiting our home, we hope it will be immediately evident the pride and joy we wish to share with our guests. We take suggestions from our guests very seriously and attempt to make our home as comfortable and convenient as possible. Our home borders Custer State Park, so guests enjoy visiting the park and all it has to offer. We are just minutes from the town of Custer, Crazy Horse Memorial, Mt. Rushmore, Sylvan Lake, Wind Cave National Park, and many other popular attractions. Although we are secluded, the roads are excellent.

A THIRD PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just spent a third weeklong vacation at this property, and as usual, everything was perfect. The location, comfort, cleanliness, fabulous kitchen, endless dishes and pots and pans. I could go on forever. There is simply no place like it in the Hills. We cannot wait until our return next Sept. Thank you Marletta and Roger. Deeda and Family

Owner's Response: We feel fortunate to have Deeda and her family as guests at our home. How thankful we are that they choose to return each year for their family vacation. Rog and I look forward to having them share our home again next year. Deeda is an artist and this year surprised us with a beautiful painting of a palomino horse. This original painting will be added to the cedar "art wall" for all to enjoy.

SUPERIOR VACATION RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
This was the most beautiful house that we have rented and we've rented several. It was spotlessly clean! So many extra special details from wonderful Kleenex and toilet paper to throws on the furniture when we were chilled in the evening! The kitchen was stocked well cooking utensils and spices. Expectations like check out directions, etc. were clearly visible when we arrived. The only thing that we didn't know prior to arrival was that 3 of the 4 bedrooms were located on the first level and the main living area and kitchen were on the second level. We had three people with us who had health issues that made it difficult climbing the stairs. However, a small kitchen area to make coffee in the morning was on the first level. The home is so private and sets back from the main road 1/4 mile. We saw deer every day. Firewood was even provided and we enjoyed a night around the fire. And we were located centrally located to all of the Black Hill attractions. We can't say enough good about this rental. Marletta & Roger made the whole experience so easy from start to finish. Thanks so much.

Owner's Response: I would like to thank Larry and Gale for their kind words. As home owners, our ultimate reward is providing an environment (both inside and outside the home) which enhances our guests' vacation. This is truly our second home, not a commercial vacation rental. We take great pride in making sure it is the quality home guests are looking for.

AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
This home is so peaceful and relaxing. It is away from neighbors yet a 10 minute drive to Custer. It is also conveniently located for visiting Crazy Horse and Mount Rushmore. The owners are extremely helpful and nice and their home is beautiful. It is well stocked with towels, pillows, etc. and everything in it is high quality and nicely decorated. I would highly recommend this property. We had a wonderful visit there and only wished we had stayed longer.

GREAT VACATION IN CUSTER

  • 5 of 5
This property was greater than we expected. We felt very at home and comfortable. The home was clean and inviting. They had everything we needed except food. The pictures on the site do not do it justice. Marletta is a wonderful host, happily answering any questions that we had. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet clean and comfortable home to spend their vacation. My husband and I with our twin teens and my parents LOVED spending time here.

FIRST TIME TO THE BLACK HILLS

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to the Black Hills and the entire area exceeded our expectations. This house was fabulous and we enjoyed every minute we were there. A lovely secluded spot that made us feel like we were a million miles away - yet were in close proximity to everything we wanted to do. The home is furnished perfectly for the Black Hills with comfortable beds and furniture - all that was needed after full days of sightseeing. We enjoyed playing games after dinner and watching movies as a family. Every morning we set out exploring from the property and seeing all the deer in the yard. Marletta and Rog were perfect hosts and called to check on us to ensure we had everythign we needed. We can't wait to go back and will definitely stay right here again!

Owner's Response: Lynn and her family were wonderful guests. We enjoyed that as a family they would hike from our home into Custer State Park. That hike is a personal favorite of ours as the only living things one might come across are deer, bison, or elk. We also appreciate that Lynn and her family enjoyed the DVD's and games. It's good to know they are being utilized. But most of all we appreciate the care and respect given to our home by Lynn and her family. We most certainly welcome another visit from them and hope they return soon. Thank you Lynn and family!

LOVED COMING BACK TO THIS HOME EVERY NIGHT

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a vacation to South Dakota and a week in this lovely home. We were so glad we had decided to choose this home as it was perfectly located in a beautiful setting, not more than 30 minutes from many, many Black Hills sites. The owners provided detailed information on how to access the trails through Custer State Park which surround the property. Hiking through the meadow and woods was the highlight of the trip for us. While we were there, Custer received 9.5 inches of snow and, though unexpected, we enjoyed the quiet beauty, and watching deer leave the only footprints. This home is just as described, and I would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed sharing our home with Fran and her party. They left our home in excellent condition and treated it with the utmost respect. I can not express enough how much their care is appreciated as this is our second home. A highlight for us was receiving a text picture from Fran showing 9.5 inches of snow on the patio furniture. The Black Hills are truly magical during snow falls. One can sit for hours becoming absorbed in the tranquil and mesmerizing snow. Thank you Fran and friends for being such wonderful guests! We hope you are able to return again someday.
