Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you… while cares will fall like autumn leaves. ~John Muir


Custom built in 2015, our cabins are nestled in the heart of the Black Hills and offer rustic charm as well as modern amenities. Our studio and two-bedroom cabins sleep 2 to 6 and offer full kitchens, full baths, covered porches, and much more.


Our cabins near Mount Rushmore are an authentic taste of midwestern farmstead country life. Guests can schedule a tour of our farmstead which located on acreage adjacent to the cabins. The farmstead is home to our chickens, honey bees, and small herd of Himalayan yaks!
