If you have never walked through a 5 foot round door or been in a house built in the trees, this will be the highlight of your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, another successful stay! This year we let our daughter bring a friend. They went geocaching and found one right down the road. The weather allowed for some beautiful hiking in Rough Lock Falls. Until next year!

Wonderful Stay at the House of the Sun

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the most wonderful time the House of the Sun! What a beautiful home and so well equipped! The kids and adults enjoyed the arcade and hot tub. There were 11 of us ranging in age from 8 to 70 and everyone loved staying here and want to come back. The views are spectacular and saw deer every day. Gordon and Audrey were so helpful - Thanks Gordon for all of your extra special help! We will definitely recommend Chateau De Soleil to our family and friends and would love to come back to see the Hobbit House!

WOW! Incredible place!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of nine (3 different families) had the most incredible time at the Chateau! It is absolutely beautiful - the home and the views! On our arrival, we were in awe at this beautiful place. The three levels to the house allowed each family to occupy a floor for sleeping. The place was spotless. The grandkids found the game room and spent hours there. The peaceful quietness of the property location was outstanding. We loved spending time on the decks and did a lot of grilling out while there. The Chateau is at the top of a hill, between Deadwood and Sturgis. Great location to many of the tourist spots like Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Reptile Garden, Bear Country, Needles Hwy, Spearfish, Rapid City and 1880 train. There are stairs to the different floors and to the hot tub (noted only for those that have issues climbing stairs). The youngest member of our family (14 months) loves steps so glad we remembered baby gates as they came in quite handy. The Chateau has a very nice highchair. No crib. The home is decorated beautifully so we had to move and put up those temptation from the little one. I think every room has a ceiling fan - NICE! Laundry room on the bottom floor has top notch appliances! Beautiful wood floors, with carpet in the bedrooms and family rooms. Love the "House of the Sun" theme that they have going on in each room. The green light display off the deck was a nice surprise to all of us. We just can not say enough good things about the Chateau. We have stayed in a couple other vacation rentals but this one was an "over the top" experience. We will have incredible memories from our stay at Chateau De Soleil. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Family Time in the Hills

  • 5 of 5
This house is phenomenal! Not only the beauty of the surrounding area, but the house is extremely clean and very well laid out. We have rented homes through VRBO in different areas of the country, and this one is on the top of our list! There is enough space for everyone, and all of the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with king beds. The views from the house and deck are bar none. We enjoyed watching the beautiful, colorful sunsets from the main deck. The first night we were there, we all noticed the gorgeous twinkling lights that were on the trees and grass in the backyard. We were all stumped as to where they were coming from since we didn't see any strung lights! It was something we looked forward to seeing every night. We are even getting some for our own home! : ) Anything you need for cooking and grilling is available in the kitchen. We found that the grocery store in Lead was the best one around- clean and easy to get to from this house- only about 10 miles. The kids (ages 8-19) felt that they had their own space in this home as well. They enjoyed the game room and the hot tub as well as the the living space in the lower level. We had evening air hockey and Pac Man tournaments which the kids loved. Any return trip to this area will include a reservation at this fantastic house. I will also recommend this home to anyone who is traveling to the Black Hills area. It's about a 45 miles drive to Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse, but it is a beautiful drive and it is well worth the distance. The serenity of this area is just what we needed to escape from hectic lives! Gordon was so quick to respond to any inquiries not only while we were there, but as we were preparing for our trip as well. Thanks for opening your home to travelers! It will be a trip to remember!
