Custer Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedroom, 2 Full Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Two bedroom/ TWO full baths (yep, TWO); lusciously comfortable & relaxing space. Air Conditioned. Wi-Fi. Centrally located in the Beautiful Black Hills, close to all local area attractions. See the sights all day and come back and you are only a short and wonderful walk to shop & dining (who wants to cook on vacation?) if you do, we have a new grill and well stocked kitchen at your disposal. Don't miss the atmosphere this location truly is the best of both worlds!

A super cozy, super fun place to hang your hat while exploring all the Hills have to offer.

The Winston offers all of the comforts of home and the convienence of being close to all the major attractions. Did you forget something, walk to the market....still want that fun trinket you saw earlier at the store.....take an evening stroll and pick it up before its gone.

Simply relax and enjoy!

About Julie Beer

We are a family that has hospitality in our blood. I was raised in a family resort setting in Northern Minnesota and fully understand and desire to give a great guest expierinece here in Custer. We fell in love with South Dakota and the Black Hills 8 years ago while on a family road trip. We had stayed on this property and the rest, as they say is history.

Julie Beer purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Julie Beer chose Black Hills

We love the convenience that Custer has to offer. We originally vacationed in more remote settings but really loved the proximity to all the must see/must do's the Hills has to offer. On a short stay this location makes more of them possible....oh, and the ability to get items that we forgot at the store etc..

Central location, great spot to stay.

  • 4 of 5

The house was just right for 4 adults, nice and clean with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms: 2 kitchen tables upstairs with lots of kitchen supplies gave us plenty of room to prepare meals and with a BBQ out back, with a table and chairs, provided for relaxing dinners in the evening sun after a day of touring. Since the house is situated just off the Main Street it was nice to be able to walk into town in the evenings for an ice cream treat.

Comfortable and clean

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Winston Cottage which we found to be very homey and pleasant. We arrived on a cold and rainy day and within an hour the heaters had warmed the entire place very nicely. Kitchen is well stocked with dishes, flatware, pans. Bathrooms very clean with plenty of towels. Only drawback was that the bedrooms are on the lower level and I didn't realize when I rented that it had steps. We managed fine but renters should be aware that it is two stories. Quiet neighborhood even though right in downtown, easy walk to all things there.

All in all, a very nice place to spend a few days in the Black Hills. Definitely a 4+ star rental.

Worked great for my family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice set up that worked great for my family. Two bathrooms was a huge asset since we had 5 of us getting ready in the morning. The home is clean and comfy in an area that gave us easy and close access to the area's main attractions, as well as good food options in the town of Custer. The owners are great and helped with all questions and gave great advice. We would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from Aug.15 to the 23rd,2016.Very comfortable and it was equipped with everything you need.Great location as a starting point for all your excursions.Owners are very easy to deal with,and the house is very clean and organized.Only thing I would change would be to move the grill to the patio area but even that wasn't a inconvenience.Ideal for 1 or 2 couples,t the 2 baths were great.I would definitely recommend to others and would love to stay here again if ever in this area.

Fun place to travel with good friends!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Winston cottage! The first thing we noticed upon arrival was how clean the house was and that it smelled like fresh laundry. Here are a few things that might be nice to know before you start packing: there is a hair dryer, lots of dishes/bakeware in the kitchen, wifi, a gas grill out back and a little patio/seating area out front. These all contributed to a nice, well equipped stay. It was also great to have a full size washer and dryer to use! The cottage is just a minute walk down to the main road in Custer where there are shops, restaurants and a full service grocery store. We recommend a stay at the cottage!

Just what we wanted and needed.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very comfortable, clean and convenient. We had plenty of space for 2-3 adults. It was really hot, so we certainly appreciated the AC. Very good experience, and I would highly recommend it.
