Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Custer - Custer Cabin

Sleeps 9 (3 bedroom,3 bath)

TRAVEL BACK IN TIME AND BREATHE IN THE AMBIANCEof INDIAN and WESTERN cultures of this home on 5 private wooded acres but only one mile from the town of Custer. The cedar house has ceramic tile floors throughout, leather furniture, new kitchen appliances and LOTS of windows.

The main house sleeps 2 in the master bedroom, 2 in the attached 'western room' (accessed from the porch) and 1 in the large utility room. The guest quarters sleeps 2 in the main studio room and 2 in the small bedroom.

The master bedroom is furnished in aspen log with a queen bed and master bath. A utility room off the kitchen sleeps 1 in a twin bed w/access to the main bathroom and its own entrance. The porch outside the utility room gives access to the 'western room' which has a full size bed with beautiful rock and cedar walls (western room is for warm weather months). We also have a pak'n play and a booster chair w/tray. Guest quarters is setup like a studio apartment (minus a kitchen) but with a bathroom/shower. The main room has a queen size bed, sofa, tv/satellite. The second room has a full size bed a separate entrance and all the character of a cabin setting.

There are 4 covered porches the favorite and largest is partially enclosed with comfy wicker furniture. It's a favorite spot for morning coffee, watching thunderstorms or sipping cocktails in the evening. From any porch you can enjoy the view, peacefulness and wildlife. Relax with a family bbq or play a game of horseshoes in the meadow.

Custer is in an area known as the 'heart' of the hills and local attractions include Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, Jewel and Wind Caves, the scenic Needles Highway. It is also 6 miles from Crazy Horse Mountain, several lakes and approximately 45 miles from historic Deadwood and the Rapid City airport. This area also attracts motorcyclists especially during the Sturgis motorcycle rally. We also welcome hunters for deer, elk and turkey season. In the fall Custer State Park hosts the famous Buffalo Roundup and Arts Festival.

About Mary Shepard

I live in Colorado

Mary Shepard purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Mary Shepard chose Black Hills

I fell in love with the Black Hills after several trips to the Sturgis motorcycle rallies. The hills and rock formation are beautiful, peaceful and scenic with lots of history. I love the small town slow pace.

What makes this cabin unique

Most people can't decide if they should stay and hang out at the cabin or if they should go sight seeing or tour other area attractions. It is so relaxing you won't want to leave!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great house. Everyone settled in for a great stay. The back porch was our favorite spot. Day and night. The kitchen suited our needs. Having a radio was a plus. The car port spared the bikes from a couple of downpours.

The location of the house was right in the center of the Park system, and the scenic drives were great. We would happily give a recomendation to any future rental requests that you might have.



Thanks, Polly Balland

Wonderful!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mary's cabin! It was a perfect setting, just 1 mile from the City of Custer and also on a gravel road that we could travel with our Ranger, enjoying the sights. The accomodations were great for 6 adults and three children. The only regret we had is that we wish we would have stayed one more night (we were there for 5 nights) just to enjoy the cabin... Thanks, Mary and we hope to visit your lovely cabin again!!! Terry and Sandy Gillespie, Clinton, MN

Great Property!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property, it is very clean and the location is perfect!!! This property is fully stocked with what you would need, simply bring the food you want to eat and everything else is there for you. Custer is about a three minuet drive, so finding a grocery store is a piece of cake. This property is very clean and welcoming. We were very pleased with our stay and would rent this house again!!!

Great Setting

  • 3 of 5

This was a beautiful area. Saw deer in the yard every day.

No air conditioning but didn't need it. The cabin was nice and cool.

The guest cottage is a garage that was made into two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The 2nd bedroom at the main house you have to go outside to use. It did smell musty.

Those extra bedrooms could have used some kind of cooling unit.

The cabin could have been cleaner....a lot of dead bugs and cobwebs.

The towels all smelled dank and musty.

Overall, it was comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We don't provide air conditioning as it would spoil the pristine and quiet environment of the forest, we do provide several floor fans. The outside entrance to the "western room" is noted in the property and bedroom descriptions. The forest does produce many bugs and we do spray regularly, a few days between renters and cleaning can leave a few bugs present, this is just part of the environment. Our towels are regularly sanitized as the well water will leave a metallic smell to them perhaps someone left damp towels sitting in the dryer I will have house cleaning treat the towels. Thanks!

Nice property discouraged with bedrooms

  • 3 of 5

Property was beautiful and we enjoyed tons of wildlife. Only thing wish would have been clearer was that the 2nd bedroom at the main house has an exterior entrance so we were not comfortable having kids stay in there.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were disappointed however the room you describe is not one of the 3 bedrooms and is also described in the ad as an "attached room with an outside entrance". Mary

Wonderful Cabin in the woods near Custer, SD

  • 5 of 5

Two couples exploring the area around the Black Hills of South Dakota chose this house for our base. The house was completely as described in the listing. We were very comfortable staying there and really enjoyed the well appointed kitchen and laundry facilities. A special bonus was having deer and wild turkeys visit the yard every day. I highly recommend this property to other small groups travelling together.
