'The Garden Shed' cabin in western Custer County

Cabin with a view! Elk Mountain sits on the border between South Dakota and Wyoming

Rustic=no plumbing. A camping toilet is provided for 2:00 am needs. Bathrooms are in the house.

Custer, South Dakota
We live on the edge of the middle of nowhere, sharing our hobby ranch with horses, mules, goats, chickens, ducks, cats, dogs, and a miniature donkey named Moses, in the shadow of Elk Mountain, a range that borders South Dakota and Wyoming. It is five miles to the nearest paved road. We are located between Newcastle, Wyoming (16 miles away), and Custer, South Dakota, (28 miles away.)

About the neighbourhood
We are an hour or less from most Black Hills destinations including Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Mammoth Site, Wind Cave and Custer State Park. We are 20 minutes from Jewel Cave, 90 minutes from Rapid City, SD, and 90 minutes from Devil's Tower, Wyoming.
What we lack in modern amenities we try to make up with western hospitality.
Note: If you decide to book, please pay careful attention to the directions we will then give you for getting here; don't rely on GPS or online map programs. As one guest aptly stated, 'GPS is speculative at best in this area, and dangerous at worst.' You could end up 40 miles away in a different county...
Getting around

How to get there
Airport: Rapid City Regional Airport : 130.0 km
When you book, I will contact you with specific information on how to get to our place to the tenth of a mile. It is imperative that you follow these directions and do not rely on GPS or other online mapping programs. It has been said that 'In this neck of the woods, GPS is at best speculative and at worst, dangerous.' People have been known to end up 40 miles away in a different county because of GPS!! :-)
