Overview

Black Hills House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrms, 2 full baths, Great Kitchen ! Sleeps 8 w/room for your air mattress.

Map Ranch is 2 miles from Custer and 2 miles from the West entrance to Custer State Park. The Mickelson Trail runs along the front edge of our Ranch for all those bicycle riders, hikers, or horse trail riders. There is plenty of space for parking. The back property line gives access to the Black Hills National Forest. We have 2 covered enclosures for Horses and large fenced pasture adjacent to the house with fenced boundary right next to the house. Please check out the pictures.

Our home has a fully equipped kitchen with an island - Great for cooking and visiting at the same time. There is a spacious covered deck with wonderful scenic views-plenty of deer, turkey, squirrel and other wildlife. The master has a king size bed, a jetted tub and new five foot separate shower. We're located 10 minutes from Crazy Horse - Mount Rushmore is about 25 minutes away - Rapid City is 42 miles. There is so much to offer here in the Black Hills you will not have time to do it all. But you can have a great time trying !

We think it will be worth it. Thank you for looking.

About Anita R. Pease

We started coming to the Black Hills in 1996 when we were traveling in our RV - fell in love and kept coming back. We moved here full time in 2003. Mike is from S. Illinois and Anita grew up, mostly, in W. Texas.

Anita R. Pease purchased this house in 2008

Why Anita R. Pease chose Black Hills

We live just over the mountain from MAP Ranch. We love this area and this property because of it's location and the creek. MAP-Ranch is just a great location to do just about everything in the Black Hills. When we first started coming to the Black Hills we just fell in love with the Southern part and the Custer area.

What makes this house unique

The view from the large covered front deck is just terrific along with the location being 'just perfect' are the two top things our guests comment on year after year.

If you would like to have an up close personal look at Miniature Herefords - you'll come to the right place! We sold all but 3 steers this past week 7/2016 - sorry!

Very nice house in great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Custer. The owners went out of their way to make our visit a good one. When our grandchildren came for a few days, they got see the newborn calves and feed the adults. The house had everything we needed and more. It was very convenient to Custer, Custer State Park, Mount Rushmore and the other national parks in the area. Because the weather was perfect, we particularly enjoyed relaxing and eating on the large front porch and hiking in the national forest right behind the house. The Black Hills are great and we will definitely stay here if we go back.

Owner's Response: Family Robinson thanks for the good review. It’s nice to let other people know that you feel MAP Ranch House has what it needs and more and the location is great and what you enjoyed. And of course, the biggie - that you would stay here again if you came back. It was really great to meet you all and do come back and see us, there is a lot more to see and things to do! Anita & Mike

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Believe every positive thing anyone has ever posted about MAP ranch, Mike, and Anita! My family stayed there for two weeks last summer and had a fantastic time. We are exploring a new part of the country this year, but we are still sharing the great memories made in Custer. We miss and think of you Mike, Anita, and Ziggy! The Killen Family

Fantastic vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about MAP Ranch as well as Mike and Anita! The house is perfectly located for all Black Hills attractions, and it has a fully stocked, full size kitchen. The master bed was the most comfortable we have ever had in a vacation rental, and though we didn't use the other bedrooms, those beds looked to be of the same quality. Upon arrival the house was clean, and I mean really clean. We have stayed in other rental houses that were clean, but things like cobwebs hiding in strange places and dirty coffee pots were overlooked. Not so with MAP Ranch. And the view....so beautiful and relaxing! Animal lovers will love this place. We watched the bulls eat and play (mostly eat) and we enjoyed feeding carrots to the resident horse, Ziggy. One evening there were deer right outside the back door. We also saw a marmot, which was a new experience for us. Mike and Anita are very easy to work with and will go above and beyond to ensure a great vacation. Upon learning that we had forgot to pack our camera, Anita offered to let us borrow hers. One morning I let Anita know that a fan had stopped working the night before and within an hour Mike was there with a new one! Mike and Anita really care about their guests and want to ensure the best experience possible. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great home base in The Black Hills.

Owner's Response: Melody and Chris, We enjoyed meeting you both so very much and we certainly appreciate your wonderful review, but mostly are looking forward to seeing you again. We are so lucky to have such wonderful guests like you. Thank you for coming. Oh, by the way, there are two baby Robbins in the nest! Thanks for being so understanding about sharing the front deck with them. We’re glad that MAP Ranch could offer you both a place for some peace, relaxation and to reconnect with nature. Please come again soon. Sincerely, Anita & Mike

Wonderful Accommodations and Hosts!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Anita & Mike, we enjoyed staying at MAP this past week and meeting you and your critters. The cattle are adorable and Ziggy is gorgeous. This home is very well supplied and it really is like being in a home away from home. We will definitely check with you the next time we come to Custer. The mattress on the King bed was so comfortable! the house has furnishings that are much nicer than any motel or cabin. Thank you again for everything!!!!

Fully equipped house very near Custer State Park

  • 5 of 5

This roomy house had everything we needed for comfort and for cooking great meals. Anita went over all the ins and outs of the house and had many suggestions of nearby places to visit. We especially enjoyed the museum and hikes in Custer State Park, the Badlands Park, Mount Rushmore, and the Geology Museum in Rapid City. The views from the house itself were beautiful

Superb Accomodations for us

  • 5 of 5

MAP Ranch was a superb accommodation for us, Grandparents and grand-daughters also enjoyed the friendly, comfortable feel of staying here. The quality of furnishings is well above average. Additionally, proximity to so much of the Black Hills attractions is very convenient. Anita's personal attention to details on the whole rental process is reassuring and refreshing. Also Mike and Anita were so nice when we visited the mini-Herefords. Great place! Bob and family in MO

Custer State Park W. entrance is 1.5 miles from MAP Ranch on Highway 16A. In late September early Oct. the Park every year has The Buffalo Round-Up that has become a world class event. Horse back riders round up the Buffalo herd to check and cull the Buffalo. This is a chance to see how it is/ was in real life. There are many caves in the Black Hills to see and explore. National Parks - Wind Cave and beautiful Jewel Cave are close. Hot Springs - South through Custer State Park, has a Wild horse refuge and Mammouth - newly discovered fossils in the 1990's of Sabor Tooth Tigers, Mammoths and other fossilized ancient animals. The Mickelson Trail is at the entrance to the ranch - following it via bicycles, hiking or by horse you can see and enjoy a step back into quiet 100 year old history. Of course we can not forget Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and the 1880's Train. There is something for everyone. We love it here and think you will too. Come enjoy our home.

Other Activities: Our guests may Pan for gold in French Creek on our property. We have several 'pans' for our guests to use.

Golf: Custer has a local golf course and Hot Springs has a good course, too.

There are just so many things to see and do - you won't be able to do it all, but you are welcome to try!

Notes:
Our home is a single floor, once you have negotiated the 4 steps in the garage or the 4 steps on the front porch/deck. The floors are laminate and we have rugs and carpets for ambiance. The home was built with allergies in mind. The central A/C &/heat keeps the house very comfortable. There are several skylights throughout which gives nice light/ambiance through out . There is a garage door opener for one (only) of the doors. The garage is oversized and an extra refrigerator is located out inside the garage - for soda or overflow of extra food stuffs for those large get together's. There is a nice sized dining table with 6 chairs (there are two extra leaves for added size). There are 2 swivel bar stools for the island bar in the kitchen, too. If you have any questions - for particulars - please feel free to email me. I will get back with you as quickly as I can. Your laptop will work here if you have a 3G satellite wireless card. Your cell/smart phone will also work.Verizon.
