'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

Fantastic Thanksgiving Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
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!!

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.

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.

Outstanding!

Mountain Crest is an incredible place to enjoy a vacation. Idyllic.Its total seclusion from the busy tourist areas, along with an incredible support system ( Chris & Sharon) ,who are the cabins caretakers, give this cabin an ambiance that is almost surreal.

Really, it reminds me of a Thomas Kincaid painting. The cabin; spacious ( family of 5),very clean, handhewn log cabin, with a wraparound deck. Fully furnished and very well stocked, ( you'll only need your food) with every convenience you could ever want, full washer and dryer, and a great BBQ, make it extremely comfortable.Ceiling fans provide wonderful airflow, for a really peaceful sleep.Wake up, and enjoy a colorful sunrise peering through the patio doors to the upper deck. Go out, greet the morning, and watch the deer graze in the meadows.So peaceful, you can hear your heart beat. Fabulous; a photographers paradise. View the City of Spearfish from the cabin; the view is breathtaking, and the word " Outstanding!" is really not enough to describe it.

Don't worry about the road, as we come from the prairies, and we had no trouble with the road, even in the dark. However, in the winter months, a 4 wheel drive would be necessary.

The owner of the cabin is very easy to deal with, as are his caretakers. Prompt, honest, efficient, and understanding, and after a few contacts with him/them, you will feel like you've been friends for many years.

We've been renting cabins in many places for over 30 years, and Mountain Crest is absolutely a first class experience. The only way for one to really understand Mountain Crest, is to experience it firsthand.We're already booking for next year.

Owner's Response: Such a thoughtful and complimentary review! Thank you. I am very pleased to know that my cabin ‘stacked up’ well in view of all of your other experiences in renting cabins at various destinations. I genuinely do believe that Mountain Crest is a unique cabin offering a ‘one of kind’ type of lodging experience. Beyond that, the greeters and maintainers (Sharon & Chris) and I pride ourselves in the hospitality and support that we deliberately factor in when leasing the cabin. Seeing our guests enjoy a rewarding, carefree time in a fun, novel, genuine log cabin on a mountain top makes us feel good, too.

Our getaway

  • Stayed: May 2013
We arrived at the cabin on May 25, 2013. We were greeted by the most amazing people (Bob and Lynn). I must say the cabin was absolutely stunning. The pictures just don't do justice! We are a family of 6 and the cabin was plenty spacious for us. There was even Mule Deer grazing in the yard our first morning there.


We did so much while we were there. We went to Mount Rushmore, Devils Tower, Crazy Horse, 1880's train, Mt. Rushmore Cave, Alpine Slide, D.C. Fish Hatchery, Custer State Park, Broken Boot Gold Mine and much more.

The Thursday and Friday we were there it rained. Friday, I refused to let it get the best of us.

Tom was super easy to work with in regards to the booking process. He was very prompt in answering all my questions.

After we got back home, we told our friends all about our stay. Some of our friends want to stay at Mountain Crest after hearing about our vacation and seeing the pictures. We will also return.

Thank you for sharing your cabin with our family, we had an AWESOME time making memories.
Owner's Response: Delighted to know that you enjoyed your visit to the hills and your stay at Mountain Crest. Certainly sounds like you and your family really made the most of your trip. Such thoughtful and complimentary words… appreciate you taking the time to give us some feedback on your ‘cabin experience’. Thank you. We all genuinely work to insure that our visitors are treated like most welcome guests. Beyond that, we try to imagine what our guests are experiencing and to be just one step ahead in anticipating their needs and preferences. We know how we would prefer to be treated and apply this to our visitors. Would love to welcome you back and extend that repeat guest discount.

Nearby, one can hike, fish, bike, explore, 4WD/off road, snow shoe, cross country or down hill ski, or snow mobile. 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.
