Tranquility - at it's BEST!

  • 5 of 5

This place is living FULLY to it's name: the Tranquility is a real treat here! Stepping outside you're likely to see squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits running across the lawn from and to the shrubbery and we stopped trying to identify the various birds that are part of "Wildlife-Team". Thanks to GPS we found the place very easy - the rest of the group without "satellite-support" had to ask twice as they were sure that they were too far off the main road! Our group of six people stayed for one week during a conference in Spearfish and it was a very good decision: being so close to the highway and yet so far from any traffic, it was the perfect place to relax and re-charge the batteries. The Owners are really the perfect hosts: clean rooms, a good comfort in the bedrooms and enough room, so we would not get in each others way, yet still have room for all of us to sit together, chat & discuss, enjoy a drink or eat our own little cooking. They are very helpful and trustworthy and let us use their own washer & dryer to do our laundry! We can definitely recommend this place for a group of people that want to have a cozy place and be for themselves. And if you'd drive home at dusk or drive off early in the morning, you have a good chance to see flocks (if not herds…) of deer grazing in the plain area on the side of the main road - or even sometimes in the backyard of the neighbors...! Thank you to these owners in the name of all the "Swissies" :-) for an unforgettable stay at your place.

Tebben's Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying with the Tebbens. We stay during the Sturgis bike rally, as Whitewood is very close to Sturgis. Renting the entire bottom floor of the Tebben's house with 4 other couples have made this vacation very affordable, and having the availability of the full kitchen and barbeque has made it easy to keep our costs down even more. We would recommend a maximum of 8 people in total, however. There is access to a hot tub and fire pit outdoors to add to the relaxation and enjoyment of our vacation. There is a patio if you are a smoker. The TV is very small if you are a TV watcher, but we never bothered with it. They have WiFi access. The Tebbens were very accomodating, even allowing us to park our motorcycles in the garage. They kindly washed the towels for us and refilled the drinking water. It should be noted that the tap water is softened, so non-potable. They thought of little details, such as a first aid kit and hair dryer in the bathroom. There is no bathtub, but the shower and toilet are separate, and there are two mirrors and sinks, so several people can get ready at once. The drive off the highway is gravel and a steep grade, so treacherous for beginner motorcycle drivers, but it is not a long drive. Everything is very clean and well-maintained. The Tebbens are very pleasant and we would highly recommend this as a vacation spot.

Owner's Response: We do love our Friendly Manitoban bikers. We do like to make renters stay as confortable and pleasurable as possible. They, as possible future renters, will be happy to know that we have a new 30 inch TV for better viewing. Also all our water is filtered, healthy, and drinkable. We just prefer unsoftened water when making coffee and supply unsoftened water to our renters as well.
