About Mary Braley

We live in eastern South Dakota and have two boys, 19 and 21. We were married on a trail in the Black Hills and visit the hills numerous times each year.

Mary Braley purchased this house in 2014

Why Mary Braley chose Hill City

Several relatives live in the immediate area. A cousin constructed the logs and roof. We completed much of the interior work, including the kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities.

What makes this house unique

The area is very peaceful with no highway noise. The Black Hills has many tourists visit in the summer where you hear traffic but this location is not a high tourist area. Deerfield Lake has excellent fishing. During evening or morning drives you will see wildlife such as whitetail deer and occasionally elk. There are many nearby hiking opportunities and Black Hills attractions nearby.

Very nice and clean home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in David and Mary's home! Everything was clean and ready for our visit. We had space to stretch out and enjoyed a warm cup a coffee on the deck most mornings. We didn't need to contact owners for any type of help as everything was laid out well and clear for our stay. The only thing I was disappointed in was in the description it stated there was internet, satellite and telephone, but we could not get any internet, there were only a few local channels , no landline and we really couldn't communicate with family and friends with our cell phones. With 2 young children and an elderly grandma this was a safety feature I really looked for during my search. Bring some DVD's in case you get rained out or just for a relaxing family evening. Everything else was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to relax and enjoy the hills and wildlife of Hill City!

Beautiful log home inside and out!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were excited to show our three boys the beauty of the Black Hills during this vacation. We booked this rental home hoping that it would fit our needs. And it more than exceeded our expectations! The kitchen and living room were open and is where we spent most of our time. The bedrooms were spacious and my oldest stayed in the basement bedroom which he loved. It was so nice to have two bathrooms when getting ready for the day. The deck on the log home was amazing. We watched the stars multiple nights and actually saw the International Space Station. Mary was extremely informative in her hand written notes on things within the home and in her info binder. We had a wonderful trip with so many memories and would recommend this rental to anyone!
