Clean place and very peaceful

We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything was perfect for the 7 people in our party (including kids). Everything needed for cooking meals was available. The land was beautiful and peaceful.

very nice place to use as a hub for Black Hills activities

  • 5 of 5

4 adults, 3 (livewire) kids really enjoyed the cabin. Plenty of nearby places to hike, everything inside was first rate. If you have kids, chipmunks and rabbit are very comfortable around people.

Relaxing Remote Getaway That's Close to It All

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place that is close to everything in the Black Hills, yet far enough out of town that you will never see a neighbor or a car drive by, this is the place! It has all the amenities of a well equipped modern cabin, and just the right amount of rustic charm. The front yard/porch area is very relaxing-- we hung our hammock between the two trees in the picture and spent our down time out there. We did plenty of day hikes in Custer State Park, Devils Tower NP, and the Black Hills and never had to get up too early, and never returned too late in the day, because the cabin is so conveniently located near it all. We would recommend the Phantom Poet Lodge for any couple, friends group or family looking for a peaceful evening after a long, fun day in the Hills.

Thanks so much for having us, Bob-- it was really easy working with you!

Remember what quiet sounds like!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Bob for a great 10 day stay with our family. This place was so quiet and private. Lots of wildlife and we even saw a couple of rainbows off the front porch. We would definitely try to stay here if and when we come back through the black hills.

Lovely cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a great place to stay for our family with 4 children. It was conveniently located among all the sights we wanted to see in the Black Hills and very close to Custer for groceries, restaurants, etc. The cabin was clean, had everything we needed, and the kids loved sleeping in the loft. They also loved the yard and tire swings. I appreciated having laundry machines!

Sioux Falls, South Dakota


  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here at the Phantom Poet Lodge. We have been coming to the Black Hills for many years to enjoy a week of the Summer here. This truly is a beautiful cabin in a beautiful setting Southwest of Custer, one of our favorite areas of the hills. It is so peaceful here without hearing airplanes, sirens, etc. The quietness allows a person to just enjoy nature such as waking up to birds singing outside your window. It goes without saying that there are many things to do in this general area for tourists to enjoy whether you have young children or older children. I would highly recommend this cabin if you intend to stay in the Custer, SD area on your visit!
