  • They go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. Make sure you take the farm tour. The owner will answer all your questions about the animals. The yaks are awesome.

    Very relaxing The cabin is located in a relaxing forest of mixed pine and hardwoods. Deer are around the cabin as was a chipmunk. The cabin is well stocked and suited for a max of five people if one does not mind the couch.

  • Amazing place This was an incredible cabin. We have never been to such a clean place, and the little perks and details make it even more special. Julie takes the time to make certain that guests don’t feel like strangers. We were grateful that she did so.

    Peaceful experience Really enjoyed lighting the campfire each night as we looked up at the star filled sky. Woke up to deer grazing by the cabin. Cabin was cozy and well furnished. Nice break from the city life.

    My boyfriend & I were on a 3 day road trip from Chicago to Mt Rushmore and we were so excited to stay at this cabin! Julie & Jim’s cabin was extremely cozy and clean with a feel good touch. It had everything we needed from kitchenware to movies. The area was very peaceful and quiet and it was easy to drive in & out of.

    Wow, Julie and Jim are absolutely amazing hosts and their cabin is adorable, safe, clean and cozy!! We felt like we were in the perfect location, very close to Mt. Rushmore, Custer Park and fun little towns like Hill City and Keystone. Julie took us on a tour of their incredible farm with chickens, bees, and yaks. She taught us so much about the surrounding areas and she could not have been more accommodating. We will miss this place!! Hope to be back soon 🙂

  • Trip to Black Hills Cabin was great (clean & comfortable). There were other cabins at the facility but they are not right on top of each other like many other places. Excellent location to serve as home base to see everything in the region.
