Magnificent !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home during our 3rd Sturgis Rally and by far this was the BEST !! This home is located atop a hill with a beautiful view. The owners have kept this place very well maintained. We stayed in the downstairs apartment while the owners were upstairs and they gave us complete privacy. The pictures are very accurate regarding the description. I would highly recommend this home, and should we return to the area, we will see if this home is available again !! You won't regret staying here. Thank you Barb and Ed for allowing us to enjoy a little piece of your heaven !!!!

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a greatl place to stay when visiting the Black Hills area. The owners are wonderful, and very accommodating allowing us to stay an extra day.

The apartment is very comfortable, has a great view from the deck, and anything you need for a visit to Mt . Rushmore. Most attractions are a short beautiful drive away. Do not hesitate to stay here, you will love it.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and will be back! The owners were kind and offered suggestions that enhanced our visit to the Black Hills. They suggested great local restaurants, local sites, and scenic rides all of which we enjoyed. We had a place to park our Goldwing, and plenty of room to relax when we returned from a ride. This is a great location to have as a "home-base" while visiting the Black Hills. Thank you for a wonderful experience! We will definitely recommend this property.

Great snowmobile weekend

  • 5 of 5

We recently took a snowmobile trip to the area and really enjoyed our stay in the cabin. The views were amazing and the cabin was great! The location was terrific, close access to everything in Lead / Deadwood area. Would definitely recommend if you are heading to the area.

Myself and some of my girlfriends rented this cabin, and it was amazing! The owners were great to work with. The house was so beautiful, and it was very close to all activities in the area. I would love to stay here again, and highly recommend this rental.

Beautiful home in "the hills" but close to all activies.

  • 5 of 5

"Top of the hill" was an ideal home for a get away for skiing at Terry Peak, gambling in Deadwood, or touring around in the beautiful Black Hills. We comfortably slept 8 of us in the home and the house is extremely well maintained. We felt as if we were in the comforts of our own home. Fully furnished kitchen and we were able to cook all of our meals in the home with plently of seating for all. The owners answered all questions in a timely manner and the pictures of the home are dead on as far as the beauty of the area. We loved to be within 5-10 minutes of Deadwood and Terry Peak. We would recommend this home to all and we can't wait to visit again next year. The hot tub was a huge bonus! Thanks again for sharing your home!
