Perfect, quiet location in a thoughtfully decorated home

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Sitting on the porch swing looking out at the Hills was very relaxing. We enjoyed hanging out on the property as well as touring the quaint town of Hot Springs. Thank you for sharing your place with us, we would come again!

Full moon at the cabin....

Love the cabin decor and setting. We enjoyed watching the deer and sitting by the fire pit under the full moon.

Second Visit

  • 4 of 5

This was the second time that we have stayed here over Halloween weekend. We love all the room this rental has (inside and out)! Our only issues with this trip was the amount of flies inside (probably time of the year) and there was only one match left to start the fire outside.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us, we truly value each and everyone of our guests. Yes, it's that time of year prior to the first hard frost that we see flies, one thing we do not ever have is mosquitos, which we are thankful for.

Wonderful base camp for Black Hills vacation

  • 4 of 5

This property is easily accessible from the highway, and close enough to town to run in for a meal or groceries. It's got a wonderful porch swing perfect for morning coffee, and a nice view out of every window. It was clean, comfortable, spacious enough for us, and just what we needed. Well stocked with essential equipment. Owner is easy to contact and very responsive. Would definitely stay here again (so we can sit around a campfire in the evening).

Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in June 2016 with our two adult sons. When we "get away", we really like to get away and have total privacy. This place was soooo wonderful! Quiet, beautiful, serene. And yet, just minutes from the charming town of Hot Springs, and Wind Cave National Park, where we saw wild buffalo and antelope every time we passed through! Close enough to see Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Devil's Tower, The Badlands, Needles Scenic Highway, Deadwood and so much more! The place was so beautifully decorated as well! We hiked in the hills out back and made it a point to not go anywhere one of our days so we could enjoy the cabin. I can't say enough about our experience in South Dakota, but our home base at the Rigdeview Cabin increased our enjoyment times ten! We plan on coming back and doing all the things we didn't have time to do, and hope to stay in this absolutely wonderful place!

Above and Beyond, Attention to Details

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights in August with our 2 dogs. I wanted to review this place because I have rented from many vrbo owners but this owner/manager stands out above the rest. Not only was this house clean, every little detail was taken care of. There was everything you could possibly need to enjoy this house. There were grilling tools for the grill, skewers to roast marshmallows over the fire pit, 2 bundles of firewood for the fire pit, pots and pans that were in good condition to cook with, a large variety of pots and pans as well, a crock pot, plenty of garbage bags, toilet paper, paper towels, soap for our stay. There was dish soap, brand new sponges, and the list goes on! The owner was also easy and quick to correspond with. The place was thoughtfully and tastefully decorated, and the beds were comfortable. The house had basic cabinetry, and appliances, so it was not a super upscale place, but the decorations sure made the place feel upscale. The selling point to me on this house was the awesome front porch overlooking peaceful quiet country scenery. I would not hesitate to come back to this property again, and would not hesitate to rent other properties from this owner as he manages several. I only wish the owner had told me the wifi in the house should only be used just to check emails. Our family used too much data while we were at the house as our phones shared photos from our trip. The owner politely sent us an email asking us to just use the wifi for emails only as we had used up and exceeded all of the data on his plan. He did not charge us extra for that though, and we could have easily have disabled the photo sharing on our phones if we had known. Anyways, I thought the owner handled that well, but he will probably better inform future renters about the wifi. AT&T gets good service in the area, but that is not the cellphone plan we use, so you will probably not need to worry if AT&T is your provider.
