This was a great cabin and in a good location for Rushmore and Custer St park. The Wi-Fi signal was weak. I was fine with the price but for $300 per night I expect not to have to vacuum and do laundry.

Management response:

Thank you Kevin. We are happy you enjoyed our cabin! I see you had to pay a $177 booking fee. Our nightly rate for 4 guest is $225 + 6% tax. We cannot change the policies. To use the vacuum and start a load of towels on the way out are merely suggestions. Guest do appreciate having a vacuum available....

The cabin is designated a historical site because it originally housed the men of the Civilian Conservation Core in the 1930's. These men built the infrastructure that made the Blacks Hills reachable for...
