Black Hills 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..

Cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our three nights at this cute little house in Custer. Just a few blocks from downtown restaurants and shops. Enough space for parents and two boys to spread out after busy days in the Black Hills. Could use one more comfy chair so 4 can sit. City pool just a block away if kids need to cool down. Recommend!

Great jumping off point in Custer

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is a great location for day trips to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park and more. Walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. It had what we needed for breakfasts with the exception of a tea kettle. Beds were comfortable and it was nice to have two full baths. Julie responded quickly to questions both before and during our stay.

Both bedrooms are on the lower level so it could be difficult for people with mobility issues. The photos represent the cottage very well. The “living room” is as it seems in the photos. The couch is the only soft seating in the house. Since there were four of us one had to sit in a hard chair when we were in the house.

Comfy and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 of us, a couple and a single. We each had our own bedrooms, with a full bath both upstairs on main level and downstairs where bedrooms are located. All the necessities were in the kitchen, and since we had planned on cooking, were pretty surprises to see lots of additional touches in the cupboard, even a crock pot! Ah and the location - we could WALK to the little grocery store, our favorite restaurant (Bobkat's Purple Pie place). The only disappointment (and obviously this is out of landlord's hands) was a few places that we were eager to try had already closed. Such a small price to pay for going out of season, thereby avoiding the crowds. And Julie (our main contact) told us about the begging burros in Custer State Park, a highlight of our trip.

We would all definitely recommend this property.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Came to Custer for the buffalo roundup and rented the property for a home base for that and several side excursions. The property was clean and in fine repair. We especially enjoyed sitting outside after a long day of exploring Custer State Park with a cup of coffee and rehashing our adventures. The owners were outstanding to work wth, also.
