Secluded Cabin in the Heart of the Black Hills

Cabin in Custer with kitchen
Log cabin (renovated in 2021) nestled in a beautiful valley within the Black Hills National Forest. The cabin is secluded with only one other rental cabin on the property (Cabin 1, VRBO #2418812). Your morning view will often include white tail and mule deer coming down the hillside to graze in the meadow. Within minutes of Custer State Park, this charming studio cabin includes amenities of a full kitchen, spacious bathroom, internet and Dish TV, gas grill, and can sleep 4 guests with a queen bed and queen sofa sleeper. After a day of enjoying all the Black Hills has to offer, spend your evening relaxing around the fire pit.
The Cabin is located at 12554 Hazelrodt Cutoff which is 3 miles from Custer, SD, 1.2 miles south on Sydney Park Road, county oil, 1.9 miles east on Hazelrodt Cutoff, county gravel, then left at the HIDDEN VALLEY CABIN sign, follow the driveway to the second cabin on the right.
Great cabin for a couple or a family up to 4. This cabin along with cabin 1 would be a great option for two families to enjoy their vacation together.
We have a trail camera, when it is turned on it only covers the parking area and the fire pit (not the cabins or the area around the cabins). We generally turn the trail camera on to see when our guests arrive and to monitor the fire pit since the property is in the middle of the Black Hills National Forest.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this cabin offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Accommodations are furnished with sofa beds and dining tables. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include showers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

SERENITY NOW......That's the best description for Hidden Valley Cabins.
My wife of 28 years and I only take vacations every 3 yrs or so, but when we do we try to make it count. It was by pure luck or by the His grace that we were led to this great little hidden gem in the hills outside of Custer SD. The cabin was the perfect size and location for what we needed and all within a 30 min drive of all the area sites to see: Mt. Rushmore; Needles hwy; Crazy Horse; wildlife loop rd; Wind Cave; Jewel Cave and the many lakes in the area. The cabin was clean, well equipped and it was a pleasure to sit and chat at the picnic table with our Host Jim.......our only regret was not being able to meet Mary, but that just gives us one more reason to come back!! Book it up, you won't regret it.

What a Serene location and property
Easy process with the host to secure the reservation. Property is centrally located to many venues within the Black Hills. Directions were spot on and property was easy to locate. We enjoyed the quiet of the location and our friendly morning deer visitor’s. Great couples cabin.

The cabin was a great spot to have a lovely Black Hills long weekend. Convenient location to get to the surrounding sites and towns, but quiet and secluded.
