Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our 2nd year back to Towering Pines for good reason. We love it! The room set up at the cabin is perfect for a large group. We were never tripping over each other. The kitchen had all the utensils and tools for cooking. We had plenty of towels (and there were 2 kids, one teen and 7 adults!). The owners were quick to help with a minor issue that arose. All around, it is a fabulous place to stay. We will be going back again soon!

The property was well maintained and everything it appeared to be on VRBO.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at Towering Pines. It had everything we needed and the proximity to Terry Peak and Deer Mountain was even closer than expected. The owners were good to work with. There was plenty of room for 4 families, unfortunately one couldn't make it due to illness, but luckily we got the insurance so hopefully they will be reimbursed after being unable to make the trip. We are hoping to book another weekend next year. No complaints here.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Tons of room for everyone to spread out and great gathering spaces as well. We especially loved hanging out on the spacious deck. The cabin worked well for our family of 6. We will definitely stay here again.

Great, Relaxing House

  • 5 of 5

This house in Lead SD was the perfect place for our family and our friend's family to meet. We used the house as a base camp and would take adventures. Our children loved the hot tub. Great place to stay.
