Custer, South Dakota
Quoted Price is for two guests.
Originally an 1895 boarding house in the gold mining camp of Kiddville (long ago abandoned), the house was remodeled and turned into a private home/ranch in the 1930's. In 2007, the home was again remodeled and modernized. The original assay office, caretakers quarters, barn/corral, and cabins are yet on the 38 privately owned acres, 8 miles NW of Custer, SD on six miles of well maintained gravel road. This home offers unbelievable solitude.

Visitors have unlimited access to 5 of the 38 private acres, and the house yard adjoins the public Black Hills National Forest. The area abounds with wildlife--deer, elk, turkeys, squirrels, birds,... The setting is very private for there are no other inhabited dwellings on the 38 acres!

Rates are for two guest...

I am very impressed with this place. Waking up in the morning seeing the deer and turkey walking around the place, and the only sound you hear is the wind blowing thru the trees, makes it a really good morning. Its a lot better than waking up to sounds of horns honking and cars driving like I normally do. My...

My family loved the home and the surrounding property. The homestead is located conveniently close to some of the best destinations and attractions in Custer. We were only a few miles from Crazy /Horse and Mt. Rushmore, Sylvan Lake, the Black Elk Peak and wilderness, and Jewel Cave. We enjoyed reading the Historical plaques that were located inside the house...

We chose to stay at the Kiddville Ranch and what a wonderful choice that turned out to be. The house is warm and cozy and reminded me of my grandmother's house. It is set out in the country on its own piece of land so it is quiet and serene.. the old mining buildings are very interesting to look at...
