Mike purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Mike chose Black Hills

Being a college student in the middle 1980's at Black Hills State College in Spearfish; I had many weekends to explore the hills and always found this part the most beautiful and it stuck when I decided to purchase...

What makes this cabin unique

You will be located right in the 'Heart of the Beautiful Black Hills'. The property has a very large covered porch and open deck to relax in this picturesque setting! Plan to be suprised in the mornings and evenings with deer and turkeys in the yard. Maybe even an elk as we have seen them in the immediate area many times. We have a real fireplace to sit by with good book in the evenings. The property has a hot tub to relax your muscles after a day four-wheeling, snow skiing, sighteeing, & etc. We only use high quality mattresses, linens and pillows for our guests. The kitchen is stocked with all the utencils you would need. If there is something you need just let us know and we will try to have it there for you. We offer wireless internet, telephone(free long distance calls) and Dish TV on a 40' Sony HDTV. The poperty offers a oversize 3-stall garage for your vehicles or bikes. We also have a laundry room if needed(free of charge). Remember NO CLEANING FEES!! This could save you $75-$250!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Robin and Heather Byrne

My family and I spent three wonderful days and nights at the Deer Meadow Lodge this summer and we are really looking forward to a return visit this winter. The lodge itself is perfect, very spacious with that wonderful log cabin in the woods feel. The location is idylic and waking up to Deer wandering around the grounds is a delight. It is ideal for getting to all of the attractions of the stunningly beautiful Black Hills or for just kicking back on the deck and enjoying the surroundings and the hot tub. I can't imagine anyone booking this lodge and not being totally satisfied. Excellent

Fantastic Home Away from Home in a Secluded Black Hills Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the week at Deer Meadow Lodge - Deadwood. Property looked nice when we were booking, but was fabulous when we arrived. It's conveniently located near all of the Black Hills attractions, but far enough away from all of hustle and bustle.

The Lodge itself was a true reflection of what was represented on the website. The interior decor was amazing, and the cabin was neat and clean. It had everything you could want for a vacation stay, including a hot tub, and TV (although we didn't watch it much)! The 3-car garage was a bonus.

The owner checked in with us on several occasions, and responded to any questions we had in a timely manor. He was very pleasant and accommodating.

There is a burger joint and a pizza place not far away, and many other places to eat in Hill City and Deadwood/Lead. We really enjoyed Hill City (food, brewery and winery), Custer National Park, the Needles Hwy, Mt. Rushmore National Monument, and the Wind Cave National Park. We even ventured a couple hours away to the Devil's Tower National Monument - a perfect day trip.

If we return to the Black Hills, we definitely would consider Deer Meadow Lodge again. And we would "HIGHLY Recommend" to our other family members and friends. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mike's property from July 1st through July 8th 2016. Wonderful/beautiful place to stay in a very peaceful and private area.

House was very clean and beautifully decorated!! Mike responded to all question quickly and even phoned to be extra helpful.

We rented motorcycles from Black Hill's Harley Davidson and had a fabulous time riding the countryside!!

Enjoyed seeing Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Badlands, Deadwood, Hill City, Wind Cave, Custer Wildlife Loop, etc. Everything was within close driving distance and could easily be visited for the day with time to return to the cabin to relax in the evenings.

Would recommend to all of my friends and family and we are hoping to stay there again in the future!!

Perfect home away from home with everything you may need and then some!

  • 5 of 5

Mike's listing of Deer Meadow Lodge was spot on accurate. The cabin was modern, well designed and decorated, and yet cozy-rustic. Our family enjoyed the deck and hot tub almost nightly. The kitchen was perfect and had a great stove, microwave, dishwasher, full-size refrigerator and freezer, and the most important feature -- a Keurig Coffee Maker! The lodge was clean and well-maintained. The customer service that Mike gave was superb! We emailed him a question minutes after arriving and he called the cabin phone within 10 seconds! He has been extremely responsive and helpful before arriving, during our stay and even delivering our deposit back to us within 48 hours after our stay. My wife and I love the Black Hills, especially the Spearfish Canyon area. The lodge is located about a 25 minute drive from Hill City, 25 minute from Rapid City, and 20 minutes from Deadwood/Lead area. My only suggestion is that if you plan to spend a lot of time in Custer State Park/Wind Cave National Park, Custer, SD, Keyston, SD, Crazy Horse, Mount Rushmore, plan accordingly. The drive is a bit longer than I would have wanted if we were spending all of our time in the southern part of the Black Hills. It was a very peaceful, quiet place to go and relax after a day of seeing the sights!

When we drove up to the property, we were in awe! It was absolutely beautiful! The front deck had neat wooden chairs on it and there were pretty flowers in baskets hanging from the top of the deck. The side deck had nice comfortable outdoor furniture with cushions along with a nice, big table and chairs to eat outside on. It also had a big hot tub which we thoroughly enjoyed! It was very quiet and peaceful with a slight breeze and NO HUMIDITY! We saw some deer, rabbits, and squirrels running around which added to the appeal of the cabin atmosphere.

The inside of the cabin was very well decorated with cabin furnishings and wall decor. It was very neat and clean and spacious for all of us. We felt very comfortable and homey inside the cabin.

Mike, the cabin owner, was very nice and accommodating to us and ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Thank you Mike!

This place was beyond our expectations, and our family is talking about doing it again in the future. I would definitely recommend staying at this cabin - you will not regret it!
