Overview

About the property

Black Hills 3BR/2BA Log Home On 17 Acres. Very Private

Custom Log Home, 2100 sq. ft. home in very private 17 acre meadow completely surrounded by National Forest. Beautiful views with no highways, neighbors or noisy tourists in sight. Near hiking, biking, horse trails, within 1-2 miles from Mickelson Trail, Golf course, fishing lake. Within 10-20 miles of Custer State Park, Needles highway, Mt. Rushmore National Monument, Jewel Cave National Monument, Wind Cave National Park, Sylvan Lake, Stockade Lake, Bismark Lake, Legion Lake.

Amenities: 3 bedroom/2 bath, Fully equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, washer/dryer. Pellet stove and gas fireplace, covered porch with beautiful view and gas BBQ grill. Family room with TV with satellite, DVD and VCR movies, games,

The cabin has direct access to millions of acres of trails and beautiful scenery.

Within 1-2 miles is the Mickelson trail which runs over 100 miles from Deadwood to Edgemont. The Hills most beautiful lakes, Sylvan, Legion, Bismark, and Stockade are all within 6-15 miles for great fishing, swimming or boating. Custer and neighboring Hill City have tons of unique shops and galleries. The local golf course is within 1 mile, or drive to Hot Spring to the golf course voted '#1 9 hole golf course in North America' by Golf Digest.

Of course Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial are within 5-20 minutes. Custer State Park, 6-7 miles east, has one of the largest free roaming Buffalo herds in the world, as well as wild burros, big horn sheep, prairie dogs, deer etc. In October is the Buffalo Roundup with a 2 day Arts Festival. Visitors can watch the actual round-up of the Buffalo. They are sorted and some are sold at the Buffalo Auction later in the fall.

My favorite is the caves-- Wind Cave National Park and Jewel Cave National monument.

Jewel Cave National Monument is 7 miles and Wind Cave National Park is 15 miles and are both world class caves with scenic and spelunking tours.

Bikers --We are located 2 miles outside of Custer and about 75 scenic miles from Sturgis. There is about 3/4 mile of well maintained gravel road from the highway to the cabin. There is a large barn w/concrete floor to store bikes and trailers.

Wonderful Choice

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all, views, wildlife and serenity. It is located close to all activities with easy access. It is tucked away in your own little corner of the Black Hills, yet close enough to all. The home was beautiful with all the comforts of home. Everything was very clean and many amenities were avaliable. The owners really made us feel welcome and at home. We will definately return to the Black Hills and this home will be our first choice for base camp. I would highly recommend this home to my friends and to anyone who just needs and quiet place to relax.

Wonderful Thanksgiving Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to White Tail Springs Ranch to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with our son, who lives and teaches in South Dakota. It was worth all the effort to get here! Enjoyed a wonderful few days together (siblings, parents and grandparents) and found the home, area and people so lovely -- perfect for our needs. Owner was very accommodating and the weather was absolutely terrific. We ate breakfast together in the large dining area each morning (along with our Thanksgiving feast!), took hikes nearby each day and ventured to Custer State Park, the Caves, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Badlands and other points of interest before enjoying dinners out at nearby restaurants and in Rapid City. Wish we could stay longer, but our vacation concludes today! All good things must come to an end. Thank you, Jody. What a beautiful spot you have here in the Black Hills.

Beautiful cozy cabin!

Clean, comfortable beds, and TWO showers! And fun to do a little trek down the deer tracks. Just what we needed!

Close to Where the Buffalo Roam

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 4 years ago and came back this year because we loved it so much. We were not disappointed. Whitetail Springs is on 17 acres so you have privacy but it is still close enough to Custer to make it easy to pick up groceries, go out to eat, or whatever your needs might be in town. It is only a short drive to Custer State Park, Wind Cave National Park, Mount Rushmore, as well as the Needles Highway, Iron Mountain Road, and other scenic drives. The home is very comfortable and even has Direct TV if you're interested in recording a football game or show to watch in the evening after a full day of doing fun activities. The owner, Jody, is just a call away and very accommodating if you have any concerns or problems. There is so much to do in the Black Hills, and Whitetail Springs Ranch and Custer is a great place to do it from. You're close enough to Custer State Park that you can visit the buffalo, begging burros, prairie dogs, antelope, deer, and whatever other animals you happen to see, every day if you wish. You see different animals each time you go. You also have a beautiful view of the rocks close by and the mountain in the distance right from the cabin. We had a great time and will certainly return to the same cabin the next time we come. Thanks, Jody.

A peaceful paradise with no neighbors in sight!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay the first week of October! The jukebox and pinball machine were a big hit! We truly enjoyed the peacefulness and privacy of the lovely log home. The bikes were also a welcome surprise. Our kids loved riding them up and down the winding driveway. Jody was available with any questions we had-thank you for sharing this beautiful home with is! It was the perfect location and close to everything.
