You can wake up each morning to a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the fully-equipped kitchen. Pans, cutting board, knives, dishes and utensils all provided to have a nice meal at home.

About Heith and Lacey

Heith and Lacey both grew up right next door in Wyoming and have been living in Custer for 2 years now. Lacey spent many summers in the Black Hills while growing up, so living here kind of feels like being home. Heith was new to the Black Hills but finds that it fits his lifestyle. He spends much of his free time hunting, when he isn't working on cars. They both enjoy getting out to hike, camp and fish within the beauty that the Black Hills have to offer.

Heith and Lacey purchased this cottage in 2015

Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect for our family of four. Its location is great for us to visit Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Badlands, Custer state park, and Wind Cave national park. It has all the essentials and the decoration is very cute. The house is clean, quiet and in walking distance to groceries and restaurants. Lacey has been very responsive and helpful. Would totally recommend the place!

Absolutely Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Before we made the trip, my email questions to Heith & Lacey were answered quickly. My husband & I brought 4 kids, ages 19, 17, 14, & 12. The cottage was cozy for that many big people for 4 nights. BUT we decided it was perfect. It was SPOTLESSLY clean & it smelled nice. =) The kitchen was stocked with supplies we needed for easy cooking. The queen bed was too soft for our preference, but I realize there are a million preferences in mattresses. The location was lovely for getting to see sights such as Mt Rushmore & Jewel Cave, plus shopping. You must try Black Hills Burger & Bun ... we were amazed at the great tastes there. Pizza Works was also delicious. In the evenings, we felt like crashing on the couch to watch something like Food Network or History Channel ... but the offerings were very limited. If you are like us, I suggest you bring DVDs (there is a DVD player) or plan to watch Netflix on your laptop. This is such a small complaint though. We were really thrilled with this little cottage. We would absolutely stay there again. Thank you, Heith & Lacey!

Convenient, but some minor improvements needed

  • 3 of 5

The property is definitely convenient to downtown and activities South Dakota has to offer. However, the skillets are really bad and need replaced. There are no mixing bowls and a cutting board would be convenient. Unfortunately the queen bed is so soft we had to retro fit the chair cushion for support. Usually one doesn't spend a lot of time indoors anyhow so keep your expectations in check.

Owner's Response: We do wish that you could have enjoyed your stay more. The queen bed is fitted with a pillow-top mattress which may not appeal to the preference of all guests. We have purchased a new set of non-stick pans for future guests to enjoy. For ease of preparing meals, mixing bowls will also be added to fully stock the kitchen. There is a cutting board already available in the kitchen, as we have tried to think of all tools that our guests may need. We do appreciate all suggestions that our guests make - we do try to accommodate all those who stay at Little Picket Cottage.

A great stay for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Little Picket Cottage. The house was perfect for our family of four. The two bedrooms, large kitchen, and living room worked perfectly. Even though it wasn't that hot when we were there, we appreciated the a/c unit in the living room. The kitchen had everything we needed and though we didn't cook much, we used the coffee maker each morning and the refrigerator to store snacks. The cottage as convenient for walking to everything in Custer, but was in a quiet neighborhood on a quiet street. A grocery store is also in walking distance. We also found the cottage convenient to everything we visited - Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, the Mammoth Site in Hot Springs and more. The only issue we had was the shower running out of hot water if all 4 of us tried to take showers in the morning. But we remedied that by having two of us shower at night and two in the morning - not a big problem at all. Overall, a great stay and Lacey was very responsive with any questions we had. Not sure when we'll get back to the Black Hills, but we would definitely stay here again! Thanks Lacey!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and that the location worked out for all of your adventures! We are planning to install a much larger hot water heater this winter - hopefully this will not be an issue for future guests. Thank you for your kind words!

The local grocery store is 2 blocks around the corner from Little Picket Cottage. There is also a carwash, Subway and a restaurant called Pizza Mill on that end of town. Maria's Mexican is a food truck just a short 2 blocks away, located next the the local VFW. Walk one more block to find full-service restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The list includes - Our Place, Baker's Bakery, Pizza Hut, Sage Creek Grille, The Custer Wolf, The Bank, Begging Burro, Buglin' Bull, Black Hills Burger and Bun, Pizza Works and more!

Wildlife abound all around with the entrance to Custer State Park just 3 miles down the road. If you enjoy a great hike or bike ride, Mickelson trail is 2.5 blocks to the east of the cottage. Several beautiful lakes are within a 10 to 20 minute drive.
