Our comfortable home is sited on 2 acres nestled in pines next to the National Forest on Edelweiss Mt. conveniently located in the Central Black Hills. To the South we are 15 min from Mt Rushmore, Keystone, Hill City (studio of painter Jon Crane), 10 min more to Crazy Horse Memorial & Custer. Just 5 min to Pactola Reservoir (beaches, boating, great fishing) from the cabin. To the North is historic Deadwood/Lead, Sturgis. You are high enough on the mt. for fantastic panoramic views/sunsets. We want you to feel at home whether sitting in the Great Room watching TV, roasting marshmallows in the massive stone fireplace or grilling on the wrap-around deck. Floor to ceiling windows allow you to enjoy the wildlife, too - deer, turkeys, lots of birds.
