This modern cedar-sided home offers comfort and convenience, but it is the peaceful, secluded aura that makes it hard to leave. Nestled into the hills, we are bordered by Forest Service land, which offers endless hiking opportunities. The breeze whistling in the pines truly induces peace and relaxation. The outdoor patio and deck space around the home invite family time or individual rest.
The home, built in 2002, has two levels, with the upper floor including a large master bedroom with glass doors leading to the back deck, large full bathroom, fully stocked kitchen, large family room and dining area. The lower level holds two bedrooms with queen beds, a full bathroom, laundry area, and large family/game room with a wood-burning stove. Five sliding glass doors and large windows offering beautiful views of the Hills are located throughout the home. Spacious rooms give every guest privacy, yet create openness for group activity.
Fully Stocked Kitchen: Guests are welcome to use the modern conveniences of a gas grill, dishwasher, refrigerator, electric stove, coffee-maker, and microwave. Cupboards are stocked with popular seasonings and staples such as coffee, flour and sugar. Cooking utensils, dinnerware, and silverware are all supplied in quantity.
An electric washer and dryer are available for guest usage in the lower level of the home.
Extra Comforts: Each bedroom features a newer queen-size mattress and its own thermostat for individual control. The home has electric heat, and with the shade of the surrounding pines, is very comfortable all summer.
We live on a farm/ranch about 180 mi. SE our vacation home. We love to get away to the Black Hills, and feel a natural pull to the area. I (Kari) work for South Dakota State University in Community Development. We enjoy spending time with grandkids and family, fishing, and hiking. Our roots are deep in agriculture, with Rick's ranch being in his family over 100 years.

Simple - we LOVE the area and the home, and want to share it!
We are in the true beauty of the Black Hills. Wildlife comes up to the door and in the late summer cattle are around due to open grazing in the National Forest.
Our family had a wonderful time at this vacation retreat. It was located right in the heart of all the activities in the Black Hills. The house was great for our family of 6 plus 3 little ones. The owners were great to work with. I would highly recommend this Black Hills retreat.
This property was perfect for us. We vacationed with another family so there was a total of 4 adults and 2 kids. Plenty of room for both families, great sleeping arrangements. Very clean, even had some extras like toiletries and condiments in case. which i really appreciate because I always forget something. Very easy to communicate with the owners. All around a great experience!
We enjoyed our stay; very comfortable home off the beaten path. Would recommend you bring provisions with you, because you don't want to have to make a grocery store run after driving out there.
This Pactola cabin was perfect! It was secluded but still close enough to all attractions. The cabin is beautiful inside and out. It was exactly what we were looking for! I will highly recommend this cabin to my friends and family! They had everything we needed. Definitely will come again.
It was obvious that the owners love their Black Hills home and want their guests to feel the same. It had everything we needed and a few things we had not thought about. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, condiments etc. The washer and dryer were a real plus for our week long stay. The area was Absolutely Beautiful! We took a great hike down the trail to Lake Pactola. It could not been any better.
Cabin was very clean, cozy and located strategically where we could get on our ATV trails. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen; with everything we needed to make a wonderful weekend.
The heart of the Black Hills is at your fingertips with this vacation get-away. Centrally located between Rapid City, Hill City, and Deadwood, this secluded home in the pines gives you the feeling of being immersed in the Black Hills. At Pactola Drive you have the best of several worlds. You are within five miles of Pactola Lake, the largest recreational lake in the Black Hills. There are several hiking trails within walking distance. The main attractions in the Black Hills for all ages are within 35 miles. Family activities include Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Mountain, Reptile Gardens, caves to explore, a water park, horseback riding, Flinstone Village, and chuck wagon dinners. Adults can find local wineries, and the exciting nightlife of Deadwood. Throughout the summer you will find festivals and activities to meet any vacation need. And if you came here to relax, the outdoor patio and deck are the perfect place for peace and quiet! One word of caution - if you want to along a main highway, this home is not for you. We are off the highway 4 miles, along a well-maintained scenic gravel road.
