Great apartment in the Black Hills

  • 5 of 5

A few minutes outside of Custer SD. So much better than a hotel. Linda gave us some great hiking tips to check out just a few minutes up the road.

Wildlife everywhere you look anytime of the day. Morning coffee with the wild turkeys! You can get to all the major attractions in a short amount of time. We appreciated the cleanliness and care put into this home and property. My husband and I enjoyed our 5 night stay. I can't think of anything that we needed that wasn't provided. We appreciated the Wi-Fi and motion sensor lights outside as we usually we're returning in the dark. We found some good places to eat in Custer and Hill City also Hot Springs. Thank you Linda and Gary for sharing this great VRBO. I would highly recommend this mountain getaway.

Wonderful getaway apartment near Custer.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the well-equipped apartment over the garage nestled in the foothills outside of Custer. Gary and Linda were extremely helpful - not only with the rental - but with offering advice on the best way to spend our time in the area. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to South Dakota.

Cozy cabin retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a fantastic time visiting Custer SD. It was so nice to be able to come back to this cozy cabin that had everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit and roasting marshmallow as well as exploring the rocks behind the property. The cabin was well stocked and easily accessibly. Thanks for a great weekend!

Excellent, comfortable surroundings, owners delightful!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautifully situated mountain home. The apartment is extremely clean, serenely quiet, and well attended. It is very comfortable with, full kitchen. Very functional for a week stay or even longer. The owners, Gary and Linda are delightful and extremely helpful regarding the area, things to do, etc. They exceeded our needs and expectations. Very customer oriented from the very beginning of the transaction through the entire stay.

The wildlife in this neighborhood, and even the back yard is amazing! Very convenient to all the sightseeing, hiking, & history that this area of South Dakota has to offer.

If you book this property be sure to have breakfast at Baker's Bakery (You will love their buns) and the salads at Dakota Cowboy are the best!

Close to Custer without being IN Custer

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. Just far enough out of Custer to feel a little out of the way without being inconvenient. Clean and well equipped. We stayed with kids, and I felt great about letting them get down to play. I initially was a little skeptical of the arrangement with the owners in the house and us over the garage, but we barely saw each other and certainly not enough to bother each other. Would definitely stay here again.
