About the property

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 offers...it 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.

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..

What makes this cottage unique

Great stay but there are some negatives

  • 3 of 5

Overall, our stay was very nice. Here are the pros and cons:

Pros:

Great location. You can walk to nearby restaurants in Custer.

Very clean house.

Well stocked pantry (oil, spices, even condiments in the refrigerator)

Beds were comfortable.

Laundry detergent and dryer sheets were provided.

Nice propane gas grill.

Cons:

Very small living room. The TV felt too big for the space.

No space in kitchen cabinets for groceries.

Bedrooms were also very small.

Water pressure in showers not so great.

Shower would not get hot...just warm water.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a very nice stay in our clean cottage and new comfortable beds...that is super important to us. The location too is awesome so thank you for that, it is close to all the big sites and to the local downtown flavor and quaint mountain town experience as well. We do advertise the space as a cottage and the price reflects that. We also have every room pictured as we try very hard to represent everything as it actually is, big tv and all. We did not notice any water pressure issues and if the new hot water heater was lower than your desired temp a simple call could have cured that for you. You may have noticed we are responsive to the needs of our guests. Thanks for coming and for your feedback!

Stay in Custer

  • 5 of 5

Custer was the perfect location to stay in. Very centrally located. The home was very clean and had all the amenities as advertised. I would highly recommend the Skogen Café - worth every penny!

It's tiny but a great place to wind down and relax after a full day of visiting South Dakota.

  • 4 of 5

Owner was very friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay that's close to lots of attractions this is a great place. Only reason I wouldn't give 5 stars is it's tiny for 5 folks and it doesn't have a decent view to enjoy in evenings.

Perfect for weekend stay! Close to All!

  • 5 of 5

Walked in and absolutely loved it! As pictured too! Loved having the patio out front for drinks and coffee.. loved the brightness of it all.. and loved that we could walk to town (One block off main street). Quiet peaceful neighborhood too. Fully stocked kitchen and the beds were very comfortable. Def recommend this to families or couples. Will keep in my favorites for hopefully future visits. Thanks Winston Cottage! Oh and Julie was always quick with replies to any inquiries. Spent the Memorial Weekend in the Black Hills.

Charming and Cozy Cottage that made our 4 night stay in Custer a pleasure!

  • 5 of 5

The Winston Cottage has a welcoming atmosphere and just the right amount of decor. The kitchen is well appointed with very good pots & pans etc. Being The Cook of our group, the kitchen equipment is high on my priority list and this kitchen gets top marks. Julie has a decorators eye and is focused on making certain you are comfortable and enjoying your stay in the cottage, as well as your visit to Custer. Cottage lets you walk into town and explore the shops and restaurants. A pleasure to return to the cottage after a day of hiking the trails or visiting the monuments and pour a glass of wine and sit on the little patio. Our Grill Master did a delicious planked salmon on the Charbroil grill. I seldom give a 5 star review but Winston Cottage deserves one!

Perfect location for a trip to the Black Hills!

  • 5 of 5

It was clean and warm for our winter stay, had everything we needed. It became our home base for a week of adventures all around the Black Hills.
