About Dennis Tuschen

I live and work in Sioux Falls, SD and own this property with 3 of my brothers. We all have kids involved in sports and don't get to use the cabin much during the summer months so we offer it for rent.

Dennis Tuschen purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Dennis Tuschen chose Hill City

There is no cabin more beautiful than a log cabin. This cabin is built with natural logs all hand peeled and with the National forest bordering the property, it is in the perfect setting. Many of our guests have told us that staying in a log cabin was the highlight of their Black Hills vacation, and kids just love this place.

What makes this cabin unique

See Deer, Elk and Turkey on or near the property. Access to some of the best 4-wheeling trails in all of the Black Hills. Close to the Ski Slopes, Spearfish canyon and Deadwood. 25 miles from Hill City with Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse nearby.

Rapid Creek and the Mickelson trail are 2 miles away for fly fishing or Biking.

Beautiful Cabin in the Black Hills!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing cabin in the heart of the Black Hills. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Dennis made everything easy - from the ease of booking and paying for the cabin, to the turn-by-turn directions to get to the cabin from all directions, to the detailed cabin amenities information and finally to the clean-up instructions provided in the cabin for use prior to our departure. From the moment we pulled into the driveway and even moreso when we walked in the door, it was evident that this cabin has been built with and cared for with pride. It is absolutely beautiful. Our family enjoyed all the little details, including the cabin decor and fun signs (both inside the cabin and outside by the deer feeder). We thoroughly enjoyed looking at the photo book walking us through the creation of the cabin - the amount of detail and thought that went into it is impressive! We also enjoyed reading through the guest book to find out why other people stayed, what they saw, what they did while here, etc. All of the amenities are available at this cabin - everything you need to cook your own food, relax, play games, watch movies, and have a great night's sleep - our 9 and 11 year old daughters loved the bunk beds! We also enjoyed the fire inside and made s'mores each night. Opening the windows at night, it was incredible how QUIET it was outside! There is no cell service at the cabin which is a BLESSING! It was great to spend quality time as a family without any electronic distractions; we enjoyed playing board games and cards! We saw wildlife every morning and evening - deer, elk (saw one on our way out the last day), steer, and encountered black cows in the middle of the road a couple of times! The cabin is centrally located to all attractions in the Black Hills area. Our family 100% recommends this cabin - it is amazing, beautiful, and perfect! We wish we had stayed longer!

My husband and I went with another couple for four nights. Very nice cabin in a beautiful location (didn't see any elk). Home is cozy, clean and met all our needs. Dennis was great to work with -- very accommodating! Can't wait to go back next year!!

A home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin, it suited our group very well. We enjoyed the scenery and the locals. Now that we have a better idea of where to ride our side by sides, it will be our destination in the future!!! Dennis seemed to be a very nice person, he asked if we had any comments or complaints and hoped we enjoy our vacation. We will pass on this cabin information to family and friends for sure!! Thank you!!
