We live in the Black Hills of South Dakota in a place known as the Stratobowl. This geological wonder is carved from the combined effects of water erosion and the uplift of a fault line in the rugged Spring Creek canyon. Secluded and idyllic, the property is reminiscent of another era. Maybe it is the silence, the old limestone cliffs, or the song of the creek meandering through the seasons. As these ancient voices surround us, we breathe in all the natural beauty. Peace melts into our being and comes out as creative expressions. When the moon is full, the canyon becomes an illuminated, mystical experience. That is why, at one time, this place was named 'Moon Valley'. Then, in 1934 and 1935, the Army Air corps and National Geographic Society launched manned balloon flights into the stratosphere from here. It was then, that the family field aquired its new name of 'The Stratobowl' while becoming the birth place for the space age.

PEACEFUL, SCENIC, AND RESTFUL

  • 5 of 5
This home is ideal for getting away and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. The grounds and surrounding area are postcard perfect, and the house is ideal for a family to call it "home" while in the Black Hills area. My wife and I stayed with our son, daughter-in-law, and three grandsons (age 5 and under). It was the perfect headquarters for our time in the area, and the views of the mountains and the starts at night were breath-taking. This is definitely a place to stay, and to return to. Our only regret was not having an extra day!

BEAUTIFUL VACATION HOME.

  • 5 of 5
One of the best vacation homes we have ever rented. Very private and idyllic location, but reasonably close to all the Black Hill must-see attractions. Kind and helpful hosts. Our four teenage girls loved it here. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. Saw plenty of wildlife right from the porch and the living room windows...Ken, we'll be back to look for those elusive Big Horn Sheep!

TRANQUIL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful vacation home for those who want to get away from the crowds are noise and enjoy nature during their Black Hills vacation. It was so nice and relaxing to come home to the babble of the creek and song birds. It was also nice for us all to have our own space after a busy day of sight-seeing, couldn't imagine being couped up in a hotel room! The kids loved the yard, the creek, hiking trails, and the loft! My husband and I enjoyed quiet evenings on the deck and a full kitchen to cook meals in. We saw big horn sheep and deer; spectacular views from the house, as well as from the trails. It is a drive off the main highway, but it was perfect to avoid highway vehicle noise. It is a great location off Hwy 16, so easy trips to all the various tourist attractions. Would highly recommend!

A VERY BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL, AND PRIVATE PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of four... 2 adults and 2 teens. This house is as beautiful as it appears in the pictures! Very clean and well-maintained. Best of all, VERY peaceful and private! It was a GREAT place to recharge after our family's daily excursions to Black Hills National Forest, Custer State Park, Badlands, Needles Highway, Harney Peak, Sylvan Lake, Lovers Leap trail, Iron Mountain Road, and more! We especially enjoyed the sound of the creek below the house as we sat out on the decks at night. And we walked the trail behind the house and found it leads to an overlook (with bench) of the creek and cascades upstream. We also took the trail going to the Strato Bowl overlook above the house. That was really cool, and we took pictures of this house from up there!

There are 2 things to consider... the 2nd bedroom is completely open (no door and it overlooks the living room below), and we could not get down to the creek in front of the house... you walk or drive a short distance down the lane/ road to get down to an accessible section of the creek (where the swimming hole is).

Otherwise, this house is perfect, and we hope to stay in this house again, probably after our kids have left the nest though. It's a VERY beautiful house and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there! Thanks to the owners for making it such a nice place to stay! :)

COMFORTABLE, PEACEFUL RETREAT IN UNUSUAL, BEAUTIFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the Stratobowl house at the end of May 2013 for three nights. We used it as home base for exploring the Black Hills. It is just as beautiful as the pictures suggest. The beds were very comfortable and we used the kitchen and grill every night. The view from every window is spectacular. My kids spent evenings eating dessert on the back porch, with the sound of the stream in the background. We saw turkeys and deer. We loved the unpaved road down to the house and never saw another car. The location is excellent for visiting Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Wind Cave, Jewel Cave, and Crazy Horse. We loved Hill City and Rapid City. The wifi was consistent and fast. The owners were the greatest. I left a shirt in the closet by accident; they shipped it back to me at no charge. We appreciated their kindness and their being willing to share their lovely house with vacation renters like us. Don't hesitate to book this rental. The house is clean, comfy, lovingly maintained, and in a great spot.
