Our first trip to the Black Hills, S. D

We wanted to see as much as possible of the Black Hills Area in our six day stay. This charming, beautifully furnished cottage provided the perfect "Home away from Home" for our vacation. The location in Lead is convenient to hiking, biking, boating, horseback riding and within an easy drive of Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. And, for the gambler, Deadwood Casinos are just two miles down the road. Lead is a quaint small town without an abundance of restaurants. However, we found a great breakfast/lunch cafe' on Main St called Spankies and had a very nice lunch one day at the Roundhouse, which also displayed a very attractive dinner menu. For a large selection of buffets, steakhouses and fine dining, again, Deadwood is two miles down the road. My favorite was the Deadwood Social Club, one of the best meals I've had in a while!
Back to the Lead Cottage.......It comes complete with high speed Internet and anything you could possibly need if not planning to eat out, including fresh vegetables in the garden! Our favorite feature was the backyard deck, which we enjoyed for morning coffee and a glass of wine in the evening. If it was too chilly for sitting outside, the enclosed front porch was equally comfortable.
I would recommend this accommodation to anyone.
