Good place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quiet. Saw lots of deer. There is a small park by the house which my kids enjoyed playing on. House layout is very nice- two separate bedrooms and a larger living space.

We had such a nice time!

  • 5 of 5

To begin with, this was a surprise trip for my guy's 70th birthday! Jim was so helpful, having never been to SD! The cabin is just as pictured and so charming. It was just right for us and very clean! As others have the nature and the serenity. It was a delight to see the deer every single morning and most evenings. They were right there outside our window.

This was also a great central location for all we wanted to do and see. Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, Badlands, hiking and Bob even went fly fishing with a great guide.

Could not have been better! Thank you, Jim.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Boxcar Bungalow was terrific. It is well situated to visit all of the places we wanted to visit in the area, very nicely furnished and has a well-stocked kitchen. We loved seeing the deer in the yard every morning and early evening. One of our favorite things was the sight and sound of the 1880 Train right outside the front door. The Bungalow was very quiet and comfortable and we would definitely stay there again!

Cutest, most comfortable little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

When I pulled in the driveway of this adorable cabin, I was greeted by a deer standing just a few feet away from the house, there was another deer taking a nap a little ways off in the yard. The place was so peaceful, yet very conveniently located, just a few minutes drive from downtown shopping in Hillcity. It took us about 10 minutes or so to get to Sylvan Lake where we got on Harney Peak Trails. We couldn't be happier with the house, it was very clean and comfortable with an easy to use fireplace and TV/ DVD player. We didn't light a fire, but there is a fire pit and small deck to enjoy some outdoor time right in the yard. Loved the place, plan to stay there again. With one bedroom with a queen sized bed, and a little nook off the living room with a full size bed and twin bunk beds - we had plenty of sleeping room for myself and two girlfriends. Thanks for a wonderful stay Jim, look forward to next time!

Sunrises and Sunsets with Games

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is at the edge of a forest, therefore the most diffenent species of animals visit it time to time. Mule deers, skunk, chipmunks, squirrels and a lot birds close to you, in some cases 2-3 feets from you. While you prepare the breakfast or the diner you can observe even 5-10 deers at the same time. The facility itself is very well equipped, the only disadvantage is the biggest advantage of the place: there is no Internet. Consequently you can relax. Hill City itself is one of the best starting point to discover the Southern Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer and Wind Cave National Parks are very close to the town, and Hill City itself is very impressive, represents the ages of the Frontiers. Come to Jim Peterson's cabin and have the expériences we had!

I would absolutely stay here again!

Nice semi-secluded property on the edge of town. Great place for a weekend getaway or extended stay for exploring the Black Hills.
