Custer, SD 57730
Our cabins are located in the heart of the Black Hills, just outside of Custer, SD. Originally used by hunters during the seasons, they've since expanded and become a much more popular get away... a little family secret to some. As a non-commercial business, we are also lacking in the highway billboards and all the hype you find with other businesses. We offer many amenities you will find no where else, including private side yards with fire pits and hottubs to relax in after a long day exploring the beautiful Black Hills. We're conveniently near town while far enough away to enjoy the blissful quiet.
Directions: Wazi Lane, off Mt Rushmore Road

24594 Chokecherry Ridge Rd
Hermosa, SD 57744
We get about two calls a week from folks who got busted in South Dakota for violations of South Dakota's unconscionable "drug" laws. Most have been stopped for having west-coast license plates (apparently an uncodified violation in SoDak). Most have already said way too much to the arresting officer. Most call for legal advice. Our experience leaves us aghast at the lack of outrage among defense lawyers at the injustice perpetrated by the courts' acceptance of lies and illegal actions performed by arresting officers, as well as the barbaric nature of South Dakota law.
Directions: From SD Hwy 79 south of Rapid City, turn east onto SD Hwy 40, then take Battle Creek Rd northwest to Chokecherry Ridge.
