***************************************************************

January, 2016

Prospective Guests:

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 recent patio expansion and a partial kitchen remodel, to better accommodate our guests.

The value a business offers can quite often be measured by repeat customers. During 2015, we booked eight (8), repeat customers for a total of fifty-nine (59) nights! It makes us proud, and we are humbled, to know that our past guests have had such a positive, Cottage experience. (NOTE: For 2015, our total bookings equaled one-hundred, twenty-five (125) nights. So, almost 50% of our business came from repeat customers.)

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 offers no rattlesnakes and no ticks?!! 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 access to 350-miles of groomed trails is 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. 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!

PS. Please feel free to contact us via phone or email. However, when contacting us via phone, first, please call our home phone (605-578-1102) and, if no answer, leave a message. Then, call our cell phone (605-920-0287). Also, if no answer, leave a message. This will assure we get back to you in a timely manner. THANK YOU for your extra effort here!

NOTE: For larger groups, please be aware that the Cottage only has one (1) shower / tub.

FYI: The Cottage at Reausaw Lake is licensed as a Vacation Home with the State of South Dakota. License number 60350.

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

We had never used vrbo before and was a little hesitant, not knowing what to expect. At first glance, the house looked exactly as pictured. The house was impeccable. It had had everything we needed and then some.

The house was centrally located for all that we wanted to do and see.

Doug and Denise are the best.

We look forward to coming back next year.

Great Vacation Rental in the Black Hills

  • 5 of 5

We have never been in a Home Away Vacation Rental that was so clean, and so well equipped. From the ample supply of dry firewood, to the well stocked kitchen, or the countless supply of Movies to watch, this home left nothing to want for. The outdoor patio was perfect with the fire pit and BBQ, where we were able to enjoy our relaxing evenings. We had coffee on the front deck each morning and watched the deer run across the law each day. The garage was a perfect place to leave our motorcycles each night out of the weather. The location was perfect to see all the Black Hills attractions. We would certainly be happy to stay here again if we are ever back in the area. We were fortunate to meet Doug and Denise when they stopped for a visit and dropped some fresh corn for our supper. They were a great couple and we wished we had more time to have spent with them. Oh, I forgot about the fresh baked cookies that Denise left for us on our arrival ! We would certainly recommend this home to anyone travelling in the Black Hills area.

Kevin, Karen and group.

5 stars all the way!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at The Cottage for the fourth time. Would we change anything? Definitely not! My husband and I love, love, love staying here. Hence coming four times. Doug and Denise provide everything you need to help you feel at home. The Cottage is so comfortable. For us, having a garage is a huge bonus to store our motorcycle each night. The location is ideal for seeing all of the sights. If you head to Custer State Park, make sure to take some bread or carrots to feed the burros. They will actually stand in front of cars, just to make sure they get their fair share!! It is hilarious.

I can't say enough about Doug and Denise. They are so sweet and will do anything for you. We actually hung out with them one evening. We will be back!!!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay at the cottage was ideal. The house was clean (immaculate, actually) and as-advertised. Doug and Denise went out of their way to make sure we felt comfortable and welcome. We can't wait to go back.

(P.S. My wife wants me to leave a poor review to increase the likelihood that the Cottage will be available the next time we head to the Black Hills. Obviously, she loved the place, too.)

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we expected and much more! The cottage was very clean, the beds comfortable, and the kitchen had everything needed for cooking meals. My grandchildren especially enjoyed sitting out by the firepit and having smores. The owners Dog and Denise came over to meet us and make sure everything was fine. The location is great, easy to get to 385 and then elsewhere in the Hills. We intend to stay here again on our next trip to the Black Hills.

Great place to stay and enjoy the hills

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned back to Brookings after having spent 5 nights at the Cottage. We had a fantastic time and everything we needed and more. Plenty of cooking utensils and a super place for a fire and a wonderful grill for outside cooking. The only thing that would have been great was another shower, but we knew that there was only the one, so we adapted our schedule for that. The Cottage is so clean and well kept and I hope that we will get a chance for a revisit. Thank you so much!
