About Kirk Bertsch

We have lived in the Black Hills all of our lives. This is the best place to relax and enjoy all of the activities during both summer and winter months. I own my own insurance and financial business and build custom cabins on Terry Peak in my sparetime.

Kirk Bertsch purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Kirk Bertsch chose Black Hills

I chose this location on Terry Peak because of the beautiful views it has to offer and is only one block from the chairlift. You are only 4 miles from the nearest town of Lead and only 10 minutes from the famous town of Deadwood that also a major gambling town. You are only one hour from the famous Mount Rushmore Memorial.

What makes this lodge unique

You will enjoy a brand new lodge that has all of the amenities you need for year-round fun. The 3,300 sq ft of area will give you room to relax and enjoy time with families and friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks Darrell and Vanesa for your review. I wanted to thank you for taking such great care of our home and doing the laundry for us and making the beds also. We have never had that done for us before, my wife was so happy. That was so great to walk in the cabin and not have to do that. You will definitely get a discount if you want to stay at our cabin again. I also have two other cabins in the same area. The cabin is located in a great location with only about 10 minutes to the famous historic and gambling town of Deadwood and close to Mount Rushmore and other area attractions. The 3300 square feet of finished area has lots of room to handle up to 14 people comfortably. We hope you visit us again in the future, thanks owners....Kirk & Julie

Fantastic spot! August 1 - 7th

  • 5 of 5

Kirk your home is beautiful! More than adequate for 12 adults.

This home is close to all the attractions. Lots of wild life to watch every morning. There is no better area than Terry's Peake.

Great spot for Sturgis Bike Week! Close to all the places you would want to visit. Great roads up to the home for bikes.

I would have no reluctance in recommending this home.

Thank you for allowing us to visit your piece of paradise!

Enjoyed every minute

  • 5 of 5

House is amazing. We arrived a day early and stayed in Deadwood for the night. check in time wasn't until 4pm the next day. In the morning I sent a text to the owner asking if we could drop off our trailers early. Got quick response saying that we could. Really helped us enjoy the first day. When we checked in later, wow!!! what a beautiful place. What more could you ask for. Very clean well furnished with all the amenities. There were only 8 of us so we had tons of room to spread out. Easy access to all the major hot spots in the Black Hills. Everyone in our group would highly recommend this property.

The home accommodated a large group.

  • 3 of 5

A few items that need to be updated/replaced include the following:

*Better quality towels

*More cookware (we cooked all of our meals at the home and the limited cookware was an issue)-a good set of pots and pans can be purchased for $100-$200

*Utensils for the grill (had no idea that these would not be provided)

*Coffee pot needs cleaned or replaced (took 30+ minutes to make a pot of coffee)

*The living room coach and rocker were great (the other furniture needs updated as comfort was an issue)

*The hot tub cover needs replaced

*The pool table and ping pong table need replaced (pool cues had no tips)

Overall, the experience was good; a few improvements as listed above would have rated the experience much higher.

Owner's Response: The cabin has 3300 square feet of finished area so has lots of room for large groups. We will look at the towels but never had any complaints. We never had complaints of the cookware and will look at that also. There is grill utensils located in the kitchen drawers. We just replaced the coffee pots and never had complaints on the furniture. The hot tub cover will be replaced soon also but is fine for now until winter sets in. I have replaced the ping pong table and I am looking for a pool table replacement. If you look at my previous reviews of the past guests they have loved the cabin. Thanks for your comments and will look into your issues, owners Kirk & Julie

Cabin is beautiful, comfortable and plenty of room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Lead at Kirk's cabin. It is beautiful with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone.

The cabin is very clean and Kirk was very prompt getting back to us with any questions that we had.

The kitchen is stocked with just about anything that you would need and we enjoyed cooking in it.

We all loved the hot tub and it was very relaxing to come back from visiting some of the many sites and use it on some of the chilly nights!! Nights get chilly so make sure you bring sweatshirts or light jackets and towels. There are some towels provided but it is nice to have your own beach towels for more coverage.

Also enjoyed going into town and visiting Deadwood nearby and highly recommend that you visit stunning Spearfish Canyon during your stay there.

Such beautiful skies and areas all around the Black Hills area!!

There is a restriction on bonfires or fires of any kind because of the extreme dry conditions in the Black Hills so keep that in mind when booking in that area.

We would highly recommend this cabin!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for having us at your beautiful home. It was so calming and peaceful, even with three small children. All of the adults, of which there were 6, enjoyed the hot tub very much. The home was very comfortable and had plenty of room for our large group, 9 in all. My two sons particularly enjoyed the downstairs which had two rooms, it's own fireplace and couches and pool table. They called it their man cave of which the rest of us had to ask to enter,. The top floor had a great big loft, in which my 3 grandkids loved to play, and two more rooms for them and my other son and his wife, their parents. The main floor consisted of the kitchen, living room, dinning room, powder room and master bedroom, which was large and spacious and became a retreat for my husband and me. It was very nice that everyone had there own space at night and then during the day we could all gather on the main floor for meals and family time. The house was clean and the kitchen well stocked. It was only a short drive down the hill to Lead, where a Dakotamart grocery store was located, and about a 20 minute drive to Spearfish where the Walmart was. Deadwood was very close and Mt. Rushmore was about a 45 minutes drive. I would highly recommend this home.
