Hill City House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in a scenic country setting

Prepare to be pleasantly surprised as this beautiful vacation rental house is no basic cabin in the woods. It will not disappoint as it offers all the things that you need in a vacation home. It has an all stone exterior and several stone features inside. It is tastefully decorated to please both the male and female in your group. This unique house sleeps up to 12. It has a total of 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 full kitchens, living room, family room, and 2 laundry rooms complete. Each of the 2 floors have 2 bedrooms, bathroom, laundry room, kitchen, dinning & living area. The kitchens are fully equipped with all necessary items for cooking. There is an extra table & chairs for more seating. The bathrooms have all tissues, towels & soaps. The ground floor has a patio in the front with picnic table and lawn chairs . The upper floor has a deck in the front and a lower deck in the back with picnic tables, lawn chairs and gas grill. These are perfect areas for relaxing and enjoying the scenery around you. The lovely nature theme of the house gives the feel of being right out in the woods among nature itself. One of our guests favorite things is viewing the beauty of the country side after a long day of site seeing or having a morning cup of coffee on the deck or patio. The house is centrally located to all major attractions of the Black Hills like Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park. It is close to the Mickelson Trail for hiking, bicycling and to the ATV riding trails. We also have another 5 bedroom, 3 bath cabin or if you need only a room or 2 for a smaller group we have several lovely lodging rooms.

About Linda

We moved to the Black Hills over 29 years ago and loved it ever since. We started out with a B & B and naturally drifted into the vacation home rental business. With my husband's background in carpentry and masonry and mine in the hospitality business and love of decorating we worked together to create homes we felt would appeal to the travelers to this area.

Why Linda chose Black Hills

We liked the country setting and thought it would be a great location for a vacation home.

What makes this house unique

This house is large enough for an extended family or a group of friends getting together for a special occasion or a just a vacation away from everyday life. It is a home away from home and equipped with all the things you need for a comfortable stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for yet another wonderful stay. This is a great place to relax, travel the back roads and Fish!! I think this year was the best, a little snow then warm sunny days, just perfect. Good luck to the both of you until we see you again.

Very nice home for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 in our group and wanted to do some ATV riding. The house was great, big rooms so we could hang together, nice amenities, soaps, t tissue, napkins... all things that make it easier to stay. We were able to wash our dirty clothes and cook meals with the great kitchen set up. We would definitely come back! Thanks for all the little things that made our trip fun!

Great Home for a larger group

  • 5 of 5

8 of us visited South Dakota to ride our bikes on the Mickelson Trail. This home is adjacent to the trail making access a breeze. Really neat decor that matches the location. Clean and tidy with plenty of room for a large group. Linda was super - she helped us settle in and gave us all the info we needed for our stay in the Black Hills. Would recommend this home to any large group/family who wants to enjoy the Black Hills of South Dakota.
