About Anita R. Pease

We started coming to the Black Hills in 1996 when we were traveling in our RV - fell in love and kept coming back. We moved here full time in 2003. Mike is from S. Illinois and Anita grew up, mostly, in W. Texas.

Anita R. Pease purchased this house in 2008

Why Anita R. Pease chose South Dakota

We live just over the mountain from MAP Ranch. We love this area and this property because of it's location and the creek. MAP-Ranch is just a great location to do just about everything in the Black Hills. When we first started coming to the Black Hills we just fell in love with the Southern part and the Custer area.

What makes this house unique

The view from the large covered front deck is just terrific along with the location being 'just perfect' are the two top things our guests comment on year after year.

If you would like to have an up close personal look at Miniature Herefords - you'll come to the right place!

Owner's Response: Ralph and family,
We were delighted to meet everyone and would love to see you again. Maybe by that time we will have learned a sentence or two in French! Thank you again for coming to see the beautiful Black Hills and surrounding area. We know that traveling is sometimes stressful and we are glad you were able to relax a bit at MAP-Ranch. Take care and come back and see us. Mike & Anita

Very clean and comfortable. Owners were great.

  • 5 out of 5
We rented the ranch for a place to stay while in the area for the week of the Sturgis rally. All of us were very happy when we arrived at the MAP Ranch. House was impecible inside and out. We really enjoyed sitting on the front deck watching the world go by at night. Never even turned on the T.V. the whole week we were there. I would recommend the Ranch to anyone looking for a nice homey centralized location when visiting the Black Hills Area.Home is two miles out of Custer, Only a couple miles from Custer State park. Many other travel spots within a half hour. I would not hesitate to stay here again and the rest of my group also agreed. If we do another Sturgis ride we will definatly inquire if the ranch is available.

Owner's Response: Jeff & friends, We were very pleased to have you as guests and do hope you come visit with us again. Our goal is to have everyone be comfortable, relax and build great memories together. Glad everyone was able to see the “alligator”, from the porch and not turning on the TV the whole time says a lot ! You all were great - come again, soon. Mike & Anita / Owners

Fabulous location and home!

  • 5 out of 5
This home exceeds the listing - it is fully equipped and very comfortable for our family. Anita and Mike provide top notch service and we would highly recommend this for anyone thinking of experiencing the Black Hills and Custer State Park. I recommend trying Alpine Inn in Hill City for a very reasonable steak dinner and Prairie Berry Winery for great local flavor. We will be back to this home again!

Awesome place to Stay

  • 5 out of 5
Mike and Anita: Thank you for the wonderful place to stay with our horses. Your home was conveniently located to Custer State Park and other horse trails in the area. There wasn't a thing that we needed while we were there. The house was so well stocked with all the necessities and then some. The horses had safe and roomy pens so when we did take a little time off of riding to do the tourist stuff, we didn't need to worry about them while we were gone. Loved waking up to the view off the front porch (the family of deer that were there everying morning and evening along with the turkeys). The cows were so entertaining to watch also. You are wonderful people and hosts to share this fantastic home with others. I hope we can return real soon, already counting the days. Thanks again for everything.

Owner's Response: Dear Julie, Deb, Sharon, & Becky, We were very pleased that you all could come and bring your horses to ride the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota and use MAP-Ranch as your home away from home. We enjoyed meeting all of you & your horses. You four ladies got to see and enjoy a lot of these hills that many people never will because you were on horse back - the way first settlers came and saw the Black Hills! Thanks for coming and we do hope to see you again soon. The porch, wildlife, cows, and us will all be here. Mike & Anita

Kids Had A Ball!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic experience...even before we got there! Our host was very prompt in responding to our inquiry about the property. She gave us great information beforehand through very cordial emails.

Once we got there, we found a very comfortable and VERY well appointed home. All the amentities: tons of dishes, pots and pans to cook with. I forgot shampoo. No matter, there was some available.

Probably the best part of the stay was watching (from the super awesome front porch) our kids enjoy the property. I never thought of us as city slickers, but it was great to see our kids enjoy the simple pleasures: naming the cows, feeding the cows, watching the deer that came on the property every evening, catching crickets, collecting rocks, finding minnows in the creek. The kids were happy so the parents were happy!

The property is in a great location, just outside of Custer....lots of things for families to do in and around Custer.

This was the best family vacation to date. We will definately be coming back to the Black Hills....and we will definately try for this location again.

Thanks again for a great experience!

Owner's Response: Dear Julia M. & family,

We thank you for choosing to come to MAP-Ranch - Custer, SD for your family get together. Your appreciation of all we have to offer and sharing it with others on line is especially meaningful. Thank you. That the kiddo’s all had a great time and were able to “connect with a little of nature” is a treat in this day and time, too. The relaxed atmosphere and being able to “kick back - on the porch” is what vacations are all about. Come back and see us soon !

Couldn't have been more perfect!!!

Couldn't have been more perfect!!!
  • 5 out of 5
I spent hours looking for the right place...one with good reviews, wanted space and privacy indoors and out. My family of 5 is so pleased that we selected MAP Ranch because it was perfect. Just as pictured and advertised, and just as other traveler's reviews stated. We loved how clean it was. Anita and Mike's hospitality was top notch. So many things are provided: paper towles, toilet paper, dishwasher detergent, hand soaps, shampoos, etc. And the outdoor setting was beautiful!. We spent hours on the covered porch. We have never found all these qualities anywhere else.

While there we went horseback riiding. Anita recommended Blue Bell Stables at Custer State Park. It was a great experience -- rode in the park, thru French Creek, and we even saw a buffalo. In the park, The Wilderness Loop and Needles Highway are a must. Went to Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. Go back to Mt. Rushmore for the nighttime lighting ceremony -- very moving. We went to a chuckwagon supper at Ft. Hays, just outside of Rapid City -- highly recommend it. And our teenagers loved the President's Tram and Slide in Keystone. A little pricey, but so much fun coming down the mountain on a slide. Found the Buglin' Bull in Custer to be a great restaurant. Our teens loved "hanging with the cows" at MAP Ranch.....and the marmets and deer.

Have no hesitations in staying a MAP Ranch -- it is a wonderful place to build memories. From the bottom of our hearts: Thank you Anita and Mike!

Custer State Park W. entrance is 1.5 miles from MAP Ranch on Highway 16A. In late September early Oct. the Park every year has The Buffalo Round-Up that has become a world class event. Horse back riders round up the Buffalo herd to check and cull the Buffalo. This is a chance to see how it is/ was in real life. There are many caves in the Black Hills to see and explore. National Parks - Wind Cave and beautiful Jewel Cave are close. Hot Springs - South through Custer State Park, has a Wild horse refuge and Mammouth - newly discovered fossils in the 1990's of Sabor Tooth Tigers, Mammoths and other fossilized ancient animals. The Mickelson Trail is at the entrance to the ranch - following it via bicycles, hiking or by horse you can see and enjoy a step back into quiet 100 year old history. Of course we can not forget Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and the 1880's Train. There is something for everyone. We love it here and think you will too. Come enjoy our home check out MAP-Ranch.com.

Other Activities: Our guests may Pan for gold in French Creek on our property. We have several 'pans' for our guests to use.

Golf: Custer has a local golf course and Hot Springs has a good course, too.

There are just so many things to see and do - you won't be able to do it all, but you are welcome to try!

Notes:
Our home is a single floor, once you have negotiated the 4 steps in the garage or the 4 steps on the front porch/deck. The floors are laminate and we have rugs and carpets for ambiance. The home was built with allergies in mind. The central A/C/heat keeps the house very comfortable. There are several skylights throughout which gives nice light/ambiance through out . There is a garage door opener for one (only) of the doors. The garage is oversized and an extra refrigerator is located out inside the garage - for soda or overflow of extra food stuffs for those large get together's. There is a nice sized dining table with 6 chairs (there are two extra leaves for added size). There are 2 swivel bar stools for the island bar in the kitchen, too. If you have any questions -a for particulars - please feel free to email me. I will get back with you as quickly as I can. Your laptop will work here if you have a 3G satellite wireless card. Your cell/smart phone will also work.Verizon
