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! This was almost 50% of the 125 total nights we booked in 2015. We didn't do as well in 2016, but we did have four (4) repeat guests for a total of twenty (20) nights. This was about 20% of the 102 total nights we booked in 2016. 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 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. Just look out the Cottage's back door. 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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the cottage and I am sure we will be back again. It is located near 385 which allows us to head north or south in the Hills. The Cottage has everything a vacationer needs and it is great to be able to come back at night and make smores in the firepit. Enjoyed our stay! Jan and family

We always return to the cottage when we travel to the Hills. The Miller's welcome us like friends and treat us like special guests. Our family can't wait to return.

The Cottage provides such great peace and quiet and yet it is not too far from most of the sites we wanted to see. There is a great little trout pond just a short walk away. We only wished we had planned to stay longer. We also feel like Doug and Denise have become fast friends and it was nice to have them in the area to answer questions. This was our second year to visit and when we return, we intend to stay at the Cottage. It is a beautiful location.

Had a wonderful stay. Can't say enough about this lovely cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in a beautiful location in the Black Hills. It is close to most major attractions, yet secluded enough for when you want to have a relaxing and quiet day or evening at "home". The cottage is well stocked and is by far the cleanest vacation rental we have ever had. We fished in the pond and hiked the private property. On our first day there, my husband saw a herd of elk grazing in the field behind the pond. The scenery is beautiful! Doug and Denise are wonderful hosts and go above and beyond to accommodate their guests. This was our first trip to the Black Hills, and we have already decided that we will not stay anywhere else the next time we travel to the area. Thank you Doug and Denise for your hospitality and for sharing your lovely cottage.
