We want to “thank you” for accessing our VRBO listing and for considering booking the Cottage at Reausaw Lake (i.e. the Cottage). During your search for Black Hills accommodations, please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information.
We are the owners, and, also the property managers of the Cottage. In this capacity, we are able to give our guests individual attention. Our priority is to offer a vacation rental that is comfortable, cozy, clean and complete, at a competitive rate. Additionally, we continually strive to make Cottage improvements, such as a patio expansion / fire-pit installation and a partial kitchen remodel, to better accommodate our guests.
The value a business offers can quite often be measured by repeat customers. As of August, 2017, we have booked eight (8), repeat customers for a total of fifty-six (56) nights! This was over 50% of the one-hundred nine (109) total nights we've booked to date. It makes us proud, and we are humbled, to know that our past guests have had such a positive, Cottage experience.
We, again, “thank you” for considering the Cottage and we look forward to serving you.
PS. And, for you repeat customers, we "thank you" for your business AND your friendship!
Doug & Denise Miller
DESCRIPTION: THE COTTAGE AT REAUSAW LAKE
Private, quiet and chocked full of diversity!! Enjoy outdoor activities in a poisonous-snake-and-wood-tick-free environment! Enjoy all types of bird and wildlife viewing, including turkey, deer and elk. This rental offers a magnificent location for the outdoor enthusiast, yet, is centrally located for easy access to all Black Hills attractions. Rapid City is 30 miles, Deadwood is 15 miles and Sturgis is 25 miles. Essentially all Black Hills attractions are located within a one-hour drive. Located on 80-privately-owned acres, the Cottage offers convenient access to the Black Hills National Forest…..a one-million-acre, public playground for your outdoor enjoyment! (Did we mention that the Cottage's location has no poisonous snakes and no ticks and very, very few mosquitoes?!! Yes, way!)
Explore the diversity of the Black Hills from your backyard!! Summertime activities include all types of recreational activities…..mountain biking via the 111-mile Centennial Trail (eight miles from the Cottage), “easy” bicycling / hiking for all ages and abilities via the 109-mile Mickelson Trail (eleven miles from the Cottage), four-wheeling via the extensive Black Hills road system and, of course, hiking, camping and fishing. Would you like to fish? We will supply the fishing equipment! The Black Hills has an extensive lake and stream system, however, Reausaw Lake is only 100 yards away. This small lake is owned by the South Dakota Game & Fish Department and stocked with trout for excellent catching success….especially enjoyable for the young angler! Or, our adult, fly-fishing guests can supply their own fly-fishing gear and have access to a private pond with hungry trout (catch and release, please)!
Wintertime activities are endless! Downhill skiing and snowboarding are thirty minutes away at the Terry Peak and Mystic Miner at Deer Mountain ski areas. Most of the Black Hills is open to off-road snowmobiling, or you can access 350-miles of groomed trails a ten-minute drive away. How about a family sledding outing? Sleds and a toboggan are available for onsite use. Further, let’s not forget that the Black Hills is excellent for snowshoeing and cross country skiing activities.
AND, most importantly, the owners of the Cottage, Doug & Denise Miller, will do everything they can to make your stay completely enjoyable! The Miller residence is located ¼ mile from the Cottage. Just look out the Cottage's back door to see our home. This close proximity allows the Millers to personally meet their guests and to be readily accessible should guests need individual and immediate attention. The Millers believe in customer service and will do all they can to make your stay an enjoyable one.
The Millers are looking forward to meeting you!

Wonderful place to stay!
This cottage was everything you could want and more! The accommodations were just like home. Lots of room and well supplied. Doug and Denise were very accommodating. They even came to greet us in person and left us with fresh baked cookies. Very thoughtful! I would highly recommend this rental and can't wait to go back again soon!
Five Star Vacation Cottage
We highly recommend this rental vacation cottage! We plan on returning in the near future and renting this cottage for our stay again. Doug and Denise have everything you could imagine in this cottage (like being at home). Very clean, organized, has games, many DVD's, maps and informational guides. We enjoyed grilling out every night and than sitting by the campfire! The neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet.
We had a very enjoyable vacation!!
Perfect VRBO Stay!
This is the second time this summer we stayed with Doug & Denise, in June we stayed a week at their Bungalow then now just finished staying 5 nights at this beautiful cottage of theirs. This cottage is VERY WELL MAINTAINED and EXTREMELY CLEAN! We enjoy bringing our own food to cook most of our meals ourselves and we had great pans and plenty of dishes and cooking supplies to do this. Having a dishwasher was a huge plus. For the times we chose to eat somewhere else there were plenty of excellent choices in the area only a short drive away. In June and again this trip we had our side-by-side and just did a lot of riding on the ATV trails, it was absolutely beautiful and we saw a lot of wild life. On the rainy times of the days (happened twice we had to end our riding early) this was so perfect to stay home and just relax. After we arrived Doug & Denise stopped in to welcome us and to see if there was anything else we needed, we didn’t get to chit-chat very long with them on this trip but really hope to be able to visit more the next time. Like every other review said the plate of home-made cookies were awesome! I did find the bed we slept in was too firm for me but everything else couldn’t have been more perfect. We loved our stay and will definitely be back. Thank you Doug & Denise!
Wonderful Home in the Woods!
This home was very very nice. Has everything you could ever need! We even brought a few DVDs for the kids and come to find out they have to cabinets of DVDs already there to choose from. Its a great area.... we seen deer come though the back yard twice! Kids loved it. Doug and Denise are an absolute delight to deal with. Would recommend this home to anyone looking to visit!!
Comfortable, cozy, quiet, peaceful
Owners are wonderful. Home made cookies were a hit with my child. Kitchen well organized and well stocked. No cell reception, but we knew that before we booked. It was liberating not to be tied to my phone. The owners have all types of literature and maps for us. We would not hesitate to stay again.
The cottage (peace and tranquility) surrounded by nature.
We stayed at this cottage 5 years ago and enjoyed it so much we came back. This was just totally perfect for us. If you are looking for a place that is well maintained , provides peace and quiet, with nature all around, even a trout lake just up the road, and then many attractions to see:
This is the place to go. The time just flew by, we hated to leave. When we arrived, we got to enjoy a plate of homemade cookies that were just out of this world. The house offered everything you could imagine comfortable beds, movies galore, air conditioning on warm days, washer and dryer, fire pit with wood to go along, just very spacious and homey. If you decide to go here you will not be disappointed. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!!
