Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We had a wonderful time here in the Black Hills experiencing all of its beauty. Hill City is Beautiful ! The HOUSE is beautiful ! It was a fantastic way to stay with our four kids. they loved the backyard, roasting marshmallows and sitting in the hot tub. And we had all the room and comforts of home... Thank you so much !

Fantastic location and a great house with tons of character

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I went to the Black Hills in late July 2016. We had a total of 10 people including four kids under age 6, one teenager, two seniors and three adults. The house was very accommodating for all of us with plenty of space for the kids to play. The openness of the house also allowed us to supervise the play without feeling cut off from the others. The house has great space and is in a fantastic location with most of our adventures located within 30-35 minute drive of the house and downtown Hill City, which is full of restaurants and shops is just a couple of blocks away.

Jim was a gracious host and was helpful with questions, insight into the weather and was quick to address questions or concerns.

Thanks for a great house Jim! We enjoyed our stay in the Black Hills and the Mainstay house!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Jim and June were very helpful with everything. The location is great for walking around Hill City and it is a short drive to Deadwood or Custer. It was great to have a grill, fire pit, and hot tub. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Wisconsin family of 8

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 traveled to the area for the first time. Hill City was the perfect place to see the many sites on our itinerary, Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park, Bear Country USA to name a few. This home accommodated our family with plenty of room. Relaxing out back with the hot tub and firepit was a bonus. We enjoyed being able to walk to town, and definately recommend the 1840 Train ride. Everything you need is there and if we had any questions Jim was available and helpful. We would recommend!!

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 people stay at this property. We had plenty of room to move around and sleep. I loved that it had a fenced in yard for the kids to play in! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals for a large group. And with 2 washers and 2 dryers in the house we were able to get a headstart on our laundry before we came home! Jim and June were super friendly and helpful. We accidentally left our kids nook at the house and Jim promptly mailed it to us. It arrived the day after we got home! We had a great time while in Hill City and highly recommend this rental.

Me and my family stayed here and we enjoyed it so much we didn't want to leave. Beautiful house with a beautiful backyard. It was definitely our home away from home. Thanks Jim for being a wonderful host we are hoping to spend another summer there soon. Thank you Joanne and family from Fargo!!!!!

Omaha Visitors

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came with our daughter's family (5 persons total) for three nights. Fit our plans to entertain additional family from Rapid City, Spearfish, and Custer. In all, 20 people visited indoors before moving outdoors to eat together on the patio and then enjoy more visiting around the fire pit. Kitchen was completely outfitted. Master bedroom bed was a little soft for us; otherwise, all other beds suited us fine. Close proximity to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse allowed us to complete our visit in the southern hills after spending two nights at Custer State Park. Will stay again.
