'MOUNTAIN CREST' -ONE OF A KIND, SECLUDED, HAND-HEWN, INCREDIBLE VIEWS

Deadwood Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-5)

'Mountain Crest', a beautifully hand-hewn, non-smoking, authentic log cabin, occupies five acres on a mountain top, about five miles northwest of Deadwood, off county-maintained, Maitland road, the 'backdoor’ road to Spearfish. It offers a large parking area suitable for multiple vehicles/guests to meet or visit, to conduct family reunions, etc.

Secluded, with dual access, well-maintained roads, this cabin is a great location to enjoy winter sports, delightful spring and summer activities, or to just 'escape' and 're-charge' one's self.

(Attention Snow Mobilers: Mountain Crest enjoys abundant snow fall. Given its relatively secluded location and being adjacent to national forest land and trails, it is ideally suited to have fun playing in the snow. Where else can one drive their snow mobile up to their front door?)

This unique log cabin can be a romantic getaway or a great location for enjoyable get togethers with friends or family. It is very clean and well maintained and offers guests complete privacy.

The cabin provides excellent support to its guests. They are greeted and provided an orientation, and while delightfully secluded, the cabin support staff/maintainers are available to answer area questions and assist.

Why the Owner Chose Deadwood... Since the Air Force assigned me to South Dakota in the late 80's, I have loved the Black Hills. The are always open and accessible (public land), safe (no bears), and the people here are so very friendly and welcoming. They appreciate visitors. The northern 'hills' are especially beautiful and have so much history and fun things to do. I very much enjoy my stays at Mountain Crest. I take great interest in making sure my visitors are able to enjoy and appreciate it as much as I do.

The special appeal of this cabin... I bought 'Mountain Crest' in 2005, a dream come true. The trees that grew on my mountain top are still there. They repose as a part of this handmade log cabin. Watching eagles soar, deer graze, chipmunks play, or turkeys strutting is something I always yearned to be able to do. You can too by simply sitting on the veranda or looking out of the kitchen window. I love having the freedom to adventure out and not come across barbed wire limitations.

A Chance to See It On a Video: A recent guest with his family shot a You Tube video of their stay. If interested, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQlvJr6HZ38

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hey Debbie, Pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Mountain Crest and that it was especially meaningful for you. In addition to its natural beauty and ambiance, I strive to provide guests a lasting, memorable experience. Maybe we 'hit the mark' during your stay. Unique to Mountain Crest, Bob & Lynn are more than cabin greeters or maintainers; they genuinely do set the tone for our visitors to enjoy a delightful experience in the hills.

HEAVEN ON A HILL

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 5 nights; family of 2 adults and 12 and 14 year old boys. This place is perfect. The scenery and views are breathtaking, and the well stocked cabin made it so easy. We were in driving distance to almost everything. Mountain Crest cabin is beautiful and it felt like a home. I enjoyed sitting on the deck drinking morning coffee and listening to complete silence, except for the beautiful chirping of the birds. This place is for wildlife lovers; deer, chipmunks, squirrels, birds, and jackrabbits! Thank you Tom for sharing your true piece of heaven with our family and providing us with memories that will last a lifetime! The pictures you find on line do not do it justice, and we were very sad to leave. I know we will be returning though! We had no problem with our Impala getting up the mountain road, although I am not sure we would attempt it on a motorcycle or in the winter time without a 4 x 4.

BEAUTIFUL SETTING!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful setting to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We so enjoyed the beauty and peacefulness--and the time to be completely alone together. We were indeed in God's country on a very special day in our lives. We so appreciated being able to just "check ourselves in" with no rushing to meet someone. Beautiful, peaceful mornings with fantastic views. The hiking and being surrounded by such beauty was awesome! From the moment Tom was contacted and we spoke, we knew this was the place to go!! We will be back!

MOUNTAIN CREST - WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful and peaceful setting! My wife, three kids (ages 17, 13, & 6) and I had absolutely wonderful time (and that is probably underestimating it!) here. We were able to go to Mt Rushmore, Devil's Tower, and Deadwood to see all the history and enjoy the outstanding scenery.

Tom, I wanted to thank you for your great hospitality and giving us the opportunity to create these memories that we'll cherish forever! We're definitely considering to be repeat customers. I'm definitely a mountain boy by heart, and it was great getting away from everything. Thank you so much once again!

FANTASTIC THANKSGIVING FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Heavenly cabin with spectacular view off the city of Spearfish and Deadwood. Our boys enjoyed it so much. Wish we didn't have to leave. Tom is great to work with and very trustworthy which is difficult to find these days. Sharon and Chris were very hospitable and made us feel very welcomed. They showed us around and made recommendations on places to visit. We are so glad we decided to to stay at Mountain Crest and would highly recommend it. Thanks again, Tom, Sharon and Chris!

Owner's Response: Hey Dayren, Pleased to know that you and your family enjoyed your Thanksgiving on the mountain. Like you, I always feel a twinge of frustration when it is time to depart and return to reality. (smile) Maybe that is part of Mountain Crest’s special appeal. Thank you for your thoughtful and complimentary words. I will be sure and share these with Sharon and Chris. We always strive to be supportive of our guests and to let them know they are appreciated and welcome.

WOW!!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin really is everything as advertised and more. After a long 13 hour road trip, we drove up the driveway and circled around the cabin. My first impression of the cabin and the view was "wow"! I couldn't believe we actually had this gorgeous property all to ourselves for 8 days. It got better as the caretakers, Chris & Sharon, showed us through the cabin and acquainted us with the layout and all of its amenities. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and dining, plus they provide supplies that many other places don't, such as coffee filters, baggies, condiments, etc. It is indeed unique, clean and comfortable and we immediately felt very much at home. We totally enjoyed spending time on the wraparound porch, cooking out, relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet of this wonderful mountain top retreat. The only sounds to be heard are the birds and the breeze rustling through the pines. Absolute heaven! Tom responded promptly whenever we had questions and was kind enough to allow us to bring our dogs along. They enjoyed the porch as much as we did and being able to go for long walks on the roads and trails close to the cabin. Chris and Sharon were wonderful and called during the week just to make sure that there were no problems. Many of the tourist destinations are within an hour or so of the cabin, so you have the best of both worlds. Our last day it rained/snowed all day. It was a perfect opportunity to stay in, have a fire in the wood burning stove and just relax and watch movies. We don't often get a day like that, so enjoyed it immensely. Sadly our vacation went by much too quickly, but we will definitely be making a return trip and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Thanks Tom for sharing Mountain Crest with us - it truly is a remarkable property!

Owner's Response: You are most welcome! Chris, Sharon, and I are pleased to know that you all enjoyed your stay and that Mountain Crest exceeded your expectations. Appreciate the feedback. I do try to describe it accurately and price it fairly. Likely, this mountain top cabin will never be considered opulent like many of those others seen on the various vacation rental sites. However, it is a unique setting, a ‘real’ log cabin, and we genuinely go out of our way to welcome and support our guests and to make it maybe just a little more comfortable and user friendly than perhaps some of those others. Do hope you come back and see us.

FRIENDS FROM WISCONSIN

  • 5 of 5
Had a Wonderful time. Close to everything we wanted to see!!! Mount Rushmore, Badlands, Crazy Horse, Devils Tower, which was all on our Bucket list. Loved the over look!! Saw deer and turkeys which our dogs enjoyed, LOL. The fire pit picture on the website does not do it justice!!! It is amazing. To bad when we were there it was HOT!!! But we still had some fires. And we even got to watch the packers play on friday night. To bad they did not show up to play that night. But we had beer, so all was good. Found a convenience store off the the mountain, towards Deadwood, Lead which helped supply our needs. We were told GPS does not work up there, and we were told. But we went off roading, Do not do that!! HAHA, but amazing enough we got off. The hosts were wonderful they could work for the chamber of commerce in the area, because they can tell you everything that is going on and how to get there. Tom was WONDERFUL to work with, you are the best, THANK-YOU !!! If we get a chance to take the whole Wham Dam family there some day it would be awesome!!! And Thank You for being pet friendly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: What a fun trip you guys enjoyed. Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences. Having a chance to see wildlife in their natural setting always makes my day. (smile) Pleased to know that you all (including your four-legged family members) had a good time. I must still be 'old school' because I always have a good time off-roading on the various forest service trails and never use my GPS. Feels more like an adventure that way. :-) Really, seldom does anyone get lost in our beautiful/friendly hills. Would love to welcome you back and extend to you that repeat guest discount.

It is only a short drive to ski at Terry Peak or Deer Mountain or to hike/bike the Mickelson Trail. It is adjacent to forest service/public land, trails, and nearby rustic, Carbonate Road (back way to Terry Peak skiing).

Mountain Crest is located close to the fun, historic, and exciting communities of Deadwood, Spearfish, and Sturgis in the 'northern hills' (most beautiful area of 'The Hills'). One can easily drive to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, scenic Spearfish Canyon, or other hills destinations. A recent guest and his family have it featured on the tube website as Mountain Crest.mp4.

Other Activities: Cross country skiing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, wildlife viewing, rock climbing

Ski: Mountain Crest is a great location from which to enjoy snow mobiling or riding one's ATV. The area is relatively secluded, borders forest service land, and there is very little traffic on nearby roads and trails. One can actually drive their snow mobile up to the cabin's veranda and steps.
