Beautiful location! Very nice area-close to town but with a country feel. Very well supplied home and very clean. Thank you. We walked the trail every morning and rode our Harley's everyday. Enjoyed every minute!

Lovely Town Home in Hill City

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay in Hill City. It was right in the heart of all the stops we wanted to see and just large enough that our family of 5 was not on top of each other. We thoroughly enjoyed the view. Our family had a fantastic time and the house was a plus. Will always consider renting a house for all future vacations.

Excellent Location, Good Value, Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a long weekend to explore the Black Hills area. We arrived very late at night and had no problem getting in and situated. For those traveling with small kids, you may take note that the loft area is connected via the garage and not directly though the house (they can be rented separately). Our older kids loved it. The pull-out couch was actually fairly comfortable although the master bed has a very soft pillow top that was a little squishy for our taste. Plenty of pillows and sheets. The owners are thoughtful to leave paper products (towels, TP) and soap which was great since we were only there for a few days and didn't spend a lot of time at the house. The setting is very peaceful with lots of deer and wild turkey traveling through at all times of the day and night, yet very close to town. We had a great time here and would definitely recommend it!
