We loved our stay here. It was great to get away from the tourist scene and have some peaceful scenery. Cabins were clean and cozy and had everything we needed. Kids loved having space around the house to roam and build their own fire. Kitchen doesn't have much cupboard space but was functional for simple meals and snacks. Diana was... More

We stayed there for 4 nights and this place was awesome. Super quiet, close to what you'd need and super clean. I would highly recommend and will stay again if we are ever back in that area. Thanks again Diana!

We enjoyed our trip to Custer and spent several nights at the Elk Haven Cabins. Even though the property was quiet and off the main roads, we would not stay here again. Here are the pros and cons: Pros -Quiet and peaceful -Comfortable bed, sofa and chairs -Good location to visit Custer State Park, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Mount Rushmore... More

My husband, mom, and 2 boys stayed here for 3 days. We loved our cabin. We even roasted marshmallows in the firepit one night. We ate dinner on the porch a couple of nights because the view was beautiful. We also saw deer every day we were there around the cabins. The cabins are off a dirt road, but we... More

If you are like us and do not want to spend 5 nights in a hotel, eating out every day and night and you like some privacy with a quiet place to relax. This is the place to stay when you are in the Custer area. Diana is a great host who is very helpful and attentive. The cabins are... More

We spent four nights in a cabin. It is very confortable, decorated with care, very clean. It is in a quiet remote area, but it doesn't take long driving to Custer. We enjoyed watching the deers and wild turkeys wandering next to the cabin. We spent our evenings watching the stars everything beeing so peaceful around us. It is a... More

The cabins were perfect! They were spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and had all the necessary amenities. They are in a great location just outside of Custer. Diana, the owner, was wonderful and easy to work with.

Elk Haven cabins were all that we were hoping for. They are in a great location. The cabins are close to all the major attractions of the Custer/Black Hills area. The cabins provided us with everything we needed for our stay. The cabins were very roomy, comfortable and clean. It was great sitting out on the front porch with a... More

These cabins are great. There were 4 adults and 3 kids (12,7 and 6mo). The cabin slept all of us comfortable and there was plenty of room! There is no A/C in the cabins, however, it gets cool at night so it is never too hot in there! They are off the main road and honestly, the trip down that... More

We drove cross country to stay here and it was well worth the trip. The cabin was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We had all the appliances and kitchen gadgets we needed to make meals and used the cabin as a home base each night. I would come back here in a heartbeat.
