The description of the amenities was not as clear as other properties we searched, for example they omitted there is no AC ( not air conditioning). The property was not well kept when we arrived, we found many dead insects in the kitchen area, we even found a live worm in one of the kitchen pans we tried to use; the furniture in the rooms was very dusty, the bedspreads smelled "musty".
Really bad customer service since the owner broke the contract, as she required a deposit fee ( a check and she stated we would get it back) she cashed it quickly BUT after receiving payment in full for our complete stay (7 nights) she never answered our emails again and, of course, a week after we are back we have not received our deposit back (as she stated in writing) or any form of answer to our emails.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless you want to lose money. We enjoyed the area and surroundings in spite of the HOT evenings (in the property) with no AC and NO disclaimer about it.
We are truly dissapointed since it put a bad experience in our first time in the area and probably will not ever use this website again after this type of unprofessional owners taking advantage of tourists.
We were a group of 10 attending the Sturgis Rally, looking for a house to rent for 2 weeks away from the crowds. We were worried at first that this rental would be too far away from all the action but were actually happy with the location based on the long day rides we took and easy access. The gravel road/driveway was not an issue. We had plenty of space to park our 3 mc trailers. The beds were all very comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us as we gathered for meals and happy hour in the open kitchen/living room areas. Overall a great house reasonable priced.
As a group we all thought it was an excellent place to stay. The owners were very accommodating to allow us to use their place for 12 days. We would definitely go there again. A very nice area and accommodations.
