The first moment we arrived at the cabin, we walked in and were blown away by, not just the beauty of the cabin, but the beauty of the view. We stepped outside onto the gorgeous deck and it was so quiet our ears were ringing! The only sound was nature. Loved the cabin and it was immaculate which was a very welcoming. The drive on the dirt road took about 35 minutes, but the drive is so pretty (and we saw plenty of buffalo and mule deer) it doesn't feel like that long. But because of the time on the dirt road, our trip to Mt. Rushmore took a good 45 minutes to get there. But the whole drive is so beautiful you lose sense of time and don't really care! The cabin has many great amenities and is just beautiful. We had a family of mule deer right outside our windows morning and night. The only minor inconvenience was at the time we went (end of October) there was a fly issue. Each morning by about 9:30-10 we would be killing more flies then we could count. They kept to the warm sunny windows so they were easy to get. We found some hornet and wasp spray and sprayed it around the house which really helped. We texted James and he was very accommodating and offered to have someone come out if we needed. We felt like we had it under control, but he was very willing to help in any way.
Overall great great experience and the surrounding area (Custer National Park and Wind Cave National Park) are worth the drive and so so beautiful. Another favorite was Needles Highway and Sylvan Lake which had awesome hiking trails. An easy trail for small kids around the lake and 5 hour trails as well. Great time of year to come too, weather is absolutely gorgeous! Would definitely recommend this cabin to friends and family.
