We chose to stay here for a quick 2 night stay on our way through the Black Hills on our way out west to Cody, WY and Yellowstone. I would highly recommend staying at a cabin such as this over a hotel. It is a much more peaceful experience and more spacious. We didn't cook any meals other than breakfast... More

Stayed for 7 nights in early April, 2016 as a family of 3, each had our own room. These cabins were sweet, inside and out. Everything you could need or want is included. Full kitchen and cookware, huge bathroom, comfortable living room, very comfortable beds, very clean and organized. Several times I bought steak at the local grocery store and... More

Love the location - on edge of custer, so close to black hills attractions, yet hidden away in quiet acreage neighborhood. Beautiful cabins and extremely clean. Had all cookware needed if you didn't want to eat out. Awesome campfire pits. No airconditioning, but didn't need it, even when daytime temps were 90, cooled off by 7 pm to where I... More

This was our second stay at Elk Haven in over a year, and it was just as great as the first time. The cabins are clean, quaint, and cozy. It was perfect for our family of 4. We like the idea that it's on a quiet gravel road and yet only minutes from Custer. The kitchen isn't very big if... More

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
