(Note: Recently re-listed with Flip Key. Usually use one of the other vacation rental sites. Have many reviews listed on these.)

'Mountain Crest' is a beautifully hand-hewn, non-smoking, authentic log cabin occupying five acres on a mountain top. It offers a large parking area suitable for multiple vehicles and guests to meet, visit, conduct family reunions, etc. Secluded, with dual access, well-maintained roads, this cabin is a great location to enjoy winter sports, delightful spring and summer activities, or to just 'escape' and 're-charge' one's self. Only recently was able to add WiFi internet access availability.

This was our 3rd time renting Mountaincrest.....and it just gets better every time. We have rented cabins in various places in the US and Canada ( mostly Canada), but we have never experienced a better place. The Black Hills is very beautiful, but also a hot, and busy place. Great fun is guaranteed...but you will be so much happier up...

Sounds like our efforts are working to keep our guests happy and provide an enjoyable and peaceful retreat. Hope you find your way back yet again. We are...

If one likes solitude like we do, go to this beautiful place. If you want to ride your large motorcycle to this beautiful place in the "hills", it is very doable. The wife & I rode both of our loaded softail motorcycles to this beautiful place for our 50th wedding anniversary! Of course we have been riding for many years.

Management response:

Pleased to know that you two celebrated such a special event at my cabin, enjoyed your stay, and found driving the roads with your motorcycle not a concern. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. Would love to welcome you back and extend to you that repeat guest discount.

My wife and I couldn't have chosen a better venue, or a better host. We needed a weekend getaway and it was a late notice, but Tom was so willing to help and a joy to speak to. The cabin itself is wonderful and the view from the balcony is amazing. We are so grateful for Tom's services and so...

Hi Jacob, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on the mountain and your feelings about the cabin. Also, thank you for the compliment.
