The Rippling Creek Haven has been a popular cabin rental since the late 1990's. In the winter of 2012, the owners built an addition to this half log sided cabin. The addition now provides for 3 separate bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The previous living room area expanded the existing kitchen and allowed for a larger dining area.

The cabin has 2 bedrooms on the main floor, each with a queen bed. The main floor also has the kitchen, dining area, full bathroom with laundry, and new living room with a gas log fireplace. The addition on the second floor includes a bedroom with a king size bed, a small loft overlooking the fireplace with a futon sleeper and a bathroom with shower. The pre-existing loft prior to the addition has 2 queen beds. This cabin has a wall AC unit in the loft and one in the living room, satellite TV and internet access. The deck has outdoor seating and a table as well as a gas grill and a private hot tub. The hot tub is available 9 months of the year; the hot tub is CLOSED January, February and March.

NEW IN 2015: A gas fire pit with seating has been added to the back yard, near the hot tub. Even during high fire danger, the gas-fired pit is permitted for use, while wood burning pits are banned. Guest will need to provide their own one pound propane tanks for the pit. Disposable tanks can be purchased at the local grocery and hardware stores. Located 4 miles west of Hill City, Rippling Creek Haven offers direct access to the Mickelson Trail, a hiking/biking and horseback riding trail. There is a catch & release wet weather stream on the property and it is near numerous mountain lakes for catch & keep fishing.

Love it! Cozy and close to attractions!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin for a family reunion/ 4-wheeling trip - 7 adults, four kids ages 4,3,2,1. This cabin is in a valley just outside of Hill City. Sun rises and sets are gorgeous there as well as star gazing at night. The Mickelson Trail is about 50 yards from the door of the cabin and was perfect for my morning runs and afternoon hikes with our four kiddos. The hot tub was great for relaxing in the evenings after a day on the trails with the 4 wheelers or touring the local sites in Hill City, Keystone, Custer and Rapid City. This was a great location for our family as it was close to just about everything in the Hills and we could do morning trips with our little ones and still get back in time for naps. The cabin itself is clean, warm, cozy, and welcoming. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for cooking our own meals and it was wonderful to have a dishwasher there to save us some time with the little kids running around. The washer and dryer were also a very much appreciated convenience with the little kids loving to play outside in the yard and down by the creek. This cabin and location had everything we needed for a family reunion and will definitely be our go to spot for future reunions! Looking forward to visiting again!

Owner's Response: Cheryl, Thank you for the 5 star review and for mentioning that the cabin is even nicer than what our photos can depict. We wish we could have ordered better weather for your stay! Thanks for letting us know about the electrical outlet that was not working, as it was just a reset button and an easy fix. We really appreciate it when guests let us know about things that need attention as it can certainly make a difference to the next guest. Please come back again.

It was a perfect Christmas in the Black Hills!

This rental was excellant! It was clean and very cozy, but roomy enough for all the family members that spent Christmas with us. The pictures dont do it justice. It provided everyting we needed to cook our meals and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing this review. It really is designed for family gatherings, with several private sleeping areas for the adults and loft beds for the younger family members. The kitchen table is very large so it can seat 10 easily. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will make this a family tradition! Marcia, Residential Rental Agent

Great cabin in the heart of the Black Hills!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the size, enough room to accommodate our family of nine nicely. The cabin had that coziness and cabin feel with the log construction and fireplace. We chose this cabin because it was so close to everything we wanted to experience in the Black Hills.
