About Julie Beer

We are a family that has hospitality in our blood. I was raised in a family resort setting in Northern Minnesota and fully understand and desire to give a great guest expierinece here in Custer. We fell in love with South Dakota and the Black Hills 8 years ago while on a family road trip. We had stayed on this property and the rest, as they say is history.

Julie Beer purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Julie Beer chose Black Hills

We love the convenience that Custer has to offer. We originally vacationed in more remote settings but really loved the proximity to all the must see/must do's the Hills has to offer. On a short stay this location makes more of them possible....oh, and the ability to get items that we forgot at the store etc..

What makes this cottage unique

Clean, Comfortable, Cozy and CloseCloseClose to Everything!

Charming and Cozy Cottage that made our 4 night stay in Custer a pleasure!

  • 5 of 5

The Winston Cottage has a welcoming atmosphere and just the right amount of decor. The kitchen is well appointed with very good pots & pans etc. Being The Cook of our group, the kitchen equipment is high on my priority list and this kitchen gets top marks. Julie has a decorators eye and is focused on making certain you are comfortable and enjoying your stay in the cottage, as well as your visit to Custer. Cottage lets you walk into town and explore the shops and restaurants. A pleasure to return to the cottage after a day of hiking the trails or visiting the monuments and pour a glass of wine and sit on the little patio. Our Grill Master did a delicious planked salmon on the Charbroil grill. I seldom give a 5 star review but Winston Cottage deserves one!

Perfect location for a trip to the Black Hills!

  • 5 of 5

It was clean and warm for our winter stay, had everything we needed. It became our home base for a week of adventures all around the Black Hills.

Quaint, lovely home close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after dark and the hosts checked in (via text) to make sure we arrived safely. Custer is cute. It is very quiet this time of year and many of the restaurants, shops are closed. We loved the Sage Creek Café. The visitor center is very helpful for regional attractions. We went to Custer State Park, MT. Rushmore, and Deadwood. A special treat was Sylvan Lake, great for family picnic.

The home itself looked newly remodeled, cute décor, loved this house for our family of 5!! They had a pack and play, so I didn't need to bring one. Washer/dryer on site was nice.

Clean, Comfortable, Convenient

  • 3 of 5

The Custer Cottage was exactly as described. Very comfortable for two travelers, extremely clean and well kept, and convenient to all the Black Hills have to offer. I gave our stay only three stars and not five for just one reason. The listed price was totally misleading. After the addition of a cleaning fee and Home Away's take and taxes, the price increased significantly. Then came the clincher - a Security Fee. Not a security deposit, a security "fee". That fee alone added significantly to our rate. And, for what, I still do not know. I would have been happy to pay for a refundable security deposit which would have been returned to us since we took excellent care of the cottage. But a "Fee"??

A nice place to stay and we were happy with the accommodation, just shocked and disappointed when the actual nightly cost was almost double the listed price.

Owner's Response: Thank you for agreeing that our cottage is extremely clean and well cared for. As for the rate, HA takes our on and off season rates and averages them for their display ad, we have no control over how that is used. We have reduced our nightly rates to compensate for the HA service fee that most of us do not like since we also pay to list on HA. The security fee of $45 is a damage insurance policy that covers both of us AND is cheaper than refundable deposits when you factor the expense incurred to take and then refund that deposit which costs every time you do it. We work very hard to keep costs down while still being able to provide an extremely clean and well cared for cottage for our customers. All pricing is presented up front and you have to agree before a reservation can be made. Hope this helps and thank you for caring for our cottage.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy house had plenty of room for us and our two year old, is impeccably clean, and in a perfect spot for all of South Dakota's amazing sites. It is walking distance to everything in the quaint little town of Custer and close driving distance to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy horse, and Custer State Park.

The owner is very responsive and accommodating. Whenever we get back to South Dakota, this is where we will stay!

Central location, great spot to stay.

  • 4 of 5

The house was just right for 4 adults, nice and clean with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms: 2 kitchen tables upstairs with lots of kitchen supplies gave us plenty of room to prepare meals and with a BBQ out back, with a table and chairs, provided for relaxing dinners in the evening sun after a day of touring. Since the house is situated just off the Main Street it was nice to be able to walk into town in the evenings for an ice cream treat.
