Step into the Tenderfoot Valley and feel the Black Hills beauty surround you. This beautiful cabin hosts a gorgeous creek with a pond and is bordered by the National Forest on two sides. Enjoy the wildlife and views of the granite cliffs and forest from the covered deck. The Granite Springs cabin is a perfect combination of convenience and being in the forest. It is privately situated on more than 5 acres of meadow, pines and rock outcroppings between Hill City and Custer.

There is just a short distance (just 1/2 a mile) from the highway to this home, leaving very little gravel for motorcycles guests. Hike, bike, or run on the neighboring Mickelson Trail and unwind in the evenings on the beautiful covered deck. It's not hard to see why guests of the Granite Springs cabin never want to leave this gorgeous refuge! The cabin features a full gourmet kitchen, inside and outside dining, covered deck, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

Master bedroom has a queen bed with an attached 3/4 bathroom
The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and there is a full bathroom across the hall

They were prompt in getting back to us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was the perfect size for our family of five. I keep a very clean home, and even I was impressed with how clean the cabin was when we came in. It is a very well kept home, and the property was gorgeous. Our 3 boys enjoyed exploring and playing football on the grass. We loved sitting out on the covered porch and watching them play. The wild turkey's and rabbit's were also fun to see roaming the property. The cabin is in a very convenient location. We went to Mount Rushmore, Keystone, Hill City, Crazy Horse, and Custer State Park. Nothing was more than 20 minutes away, and we thought it was great that you could access the Mickelson Trail from the property. We had such a wonderful time and didn't want to leave! We will definitely be coming back and staying again!

We found the property on-line and had our initial questions answered promptly. From there, we received timely reminders and related information making our stay an absolute no-hassle experience.
Granite Springs is a beautiful and well-appointed cabin located in a spacious and private setting. Centrally located between Custer and Hill City, it was the perfect base for our adventures in the Black Hills. The cabin really felt like home away from home. We especially enjoyed sitting out by the small pond to wind down each evening. We definitely would stay here again for a future Black Hills vacation.

I called LeAnn a few times and she was incredibly helpful and professional. A very kind young man came to reprogram our door lock but I didn't catch his name.
Wonderful stay, beautiful and clean home, the location fit our needs perfectly. The children most enjoyed the great covered porch and the beautiful big yard. I personally appreciated the fully stocked and spacious kitchen. Thank you, we'll be back!

This is an absolutely fantastic property! The location was perfect, close to all of the major areas we wanted to visit (short drive to Crazy horse, Mt. Rushmore & Custer State Park - about an hour or so to Hot Springs or Deadwood). The house was very clean, had everything we could have possibly needed and the washer and dryer really made a week long stay a breeze. Having two bathrooms was wonderful, as we are a family with three kids. The boys really enjoyed playing in the yard and exploring the pond. My husband and I loved the huge deck and the view. It was secluded from the other houses in the neighborhood, but close enough that you didn't feel stranded in the middle of nowhere. I can't say enough about this place. I've already recommended it to everyone I know.

The cabin was beautiful! It was spacious, clean and had everything we needed and more. Loved having a washer and dryer and how centrally located it was. It was near 100 the whole week we were in the Black Hills but the cabin stayed cool both in the day and at night. We would absolutely stay here again.
