“Perfect, peaceful cabin!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This is the perfect, peaceful cabin in the beautiful Spearfish Canyon. It has all the modern amenities with the Spearfish Creek meandering right next to it. With the hot tub on deck and the sounds of nature and the water..nothing could be more relaxing. I truly enjoyed my time there with special friends

“Absolutely Perfect!”

The creek directly off the deck/backyard makes the most relaxing noise and if fishing is your thing, you will be in heaven. We were surrounded by trees, mountains and even saw a few wild turkeys. Place was clean, had everything we needed including a pool table and fully stocked cupboard full of board games/cards. It was nice to have Wi-Fi so we could "check-in" every now and then. The hot tub on the clear nights can't be beat!

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The beautiful deck so close to the creek. The sound of the creek was so peaceful. The cabin was so cozy and homey. Will definitely go back! We all loved it!

“Fall Birthday Bonanza”

This was a great place to sit and relax with friends for a birthday party. Plenty of sleeping arrangements. Great kitchen area for cooking. Living room with pool table and Dish were great for entertainment, as was the sun room for a nice quiet conversation area. The creek being right off the deck is wonderful, if only we could have accessed it (thanks snow)!

“Great Cabin on Spearfish Creek”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed here over a long weekend in August. The cabin looked as if it was updated very recently....it felt very homey. We sat in the backyard next to the creek every night....the creek cascades a couple of times in the backyard with gives a great ambiance as you listen to the creek...I even caught fish in the creek one of the days. The cabin is located close to Spearfish, Deadwood and other historical towns. The drive to Mt. Rushmore and the Crazyhorse monument was very easy to do in one day. There are great trails as well in the area....we plan on going back to visit and stay in the cabin again...hopefully to mountain bike race in the Dakota 50 someday.

Great place to stay in the Black Hills with a group of friends. Cabin has been recently updated. Great deck off the back only feet from the creek. Small firepit provides a great venue for drinking a few beers and enjoying bbq. Deadwood is a very reasonable drive. It is a pleasant walk up to the nearby corner store / cafe. Had a great stay.
