French Creek Retreat is that perfect escape in the hills you've been looking for! Having no visible neighbors and being bordered on two sides by National Forest, this home is still so convenient to all Black Hills attractions and dining. This truly is a home away from home, with its beautiful pond and the historical French Creek going through the property, yet all the modern conveniences, you'll never want to leave. Sit on the back deck and enjoy the view with your morning coffee, catch and release fish in the pond and creek onsite, enjoy the gazebo with your afternoon tea, or hike, bike, and ATV all from here!  

The main floor hosts a beautiful master suite with a king sized bed, a large bath (jetted tub), & large walk-in closet. The living room has a beautiful vaulted ceiling with a propane fireplace, eat-in kitchen, laundry room and a 3/4 bathroom. Up the log stairs there is a loft, bathroom, and two bedrooms. One bedroom has a full sized bed and the other has a queen sized bed. Downstairs, there is a fully finished basement family room with a queen sized bed and a queen sleeper sofa, plus a full bathroom. 

There is a full RV hook-up site (septic, electric, water) which can be rented as well with a $40.00 per night fee. This RV site won't be rented to anyone not currently staying at the home so you won't have other people staying there that you don't know. 

* While the access to this home is easy, there are 3 miles of well maintained gravel county roads to get to this home off of the highway.

The team members I have worked with have always been helpful with questions as well as picking places to stay inside your group of cabins. They have been helpful with payments and creating arrangements
Everything was great. The cabin is really nice. We needed a place to stay while visiting family over the holidays. We not only enjoyed our family, but the cabin was a nice break from the family that we were visiting in Hot Springs. Very nice cabin, had no issues with anything. Close enough to the main drag to get places, but not far enough from the main drag where you can have a nice peaceful quiet time while at the cabin.

Rushmore Vacation Rentals was an extremely easy to book and wonderful stay experience.
This property was a hidden gem in the Black Hills area. It was close to attractions but provided us picturesque seclusion. Perfect spot for a tranquil getaway.

I had several questions I needed answered prior to arriving at our vacation. Lee Ann was great about returning my emails.
French Creek retreat is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting! The home was obviously professionally decorated and extremely comfortable for our family reunion. It is the kind of place you wish you could actually live full-time. The house is only a few miles outside of Custer and close to everything. I have stayed at mini vacation rentals in the past, but this one exceeded them all! It was beautiful, comfortable, and located close to everything. It was immaculately clean! It provided a private and peaceful escape from the real world. The grounds were lovely and well-maintained. There was literally nothing more I couldve hoped for!

We didn't meet the "team" because we experienced no issues. None. It was perfect.
This place is top-notch, high quality, completely furnished with everything imaginable. Even things we weren't expecting were furnished . . . fishing equipment, options for coffee makers, etc. The owners are meticulous in their planning. Even an assortment of brochures for activities. The location is awesome and within driving distance of fun stuff. We loved Custer! Hope to return next year!

We did not have much need to work with the team as we had no problems.
The house and property were great and the proximity to the places we wanted to see was good. We brought our own coffee pot as a kuerig would not do for our coffee drinkers but we were aware of this ahead of time. Also not a lot of spices, etc. for cooking but we also knew this and were prepared. The house was roomy for our family and the beds comfortable. The house is in such a beautiful setting, very private and the kids loved the fishing pond. I loved sitting on the deck in the mornings with my coffee. It is not too far from the town of Custer to pick up supplies. Also Custer State Park was not far and we loved it. It is a very quiet and peaceful area. We would love to stay here again.

Thank you for your quick replies to my emails. Thank you for all the attention to detail in everything you provide in the house. From the decorations, to the many towels and blankets, to the local attraction brochures. We had everything we needed! Thank you very much!
I highly recommend staying at the French Creek Retreat. We had a family of 8 and there was more than enough room. The property was absolutely beautiful. We watched wildlife every morning while sitting on the balcony drinking coffee. The house is only a few mins from Custer. Its a perfect home base for sightseeing around the Black Hills. Very close to all the attractions. We couldnt have asked for a better family vacation!

Wonderful house, so peaceful! We really enjoyed the town, the parks, and lakes etc. Would definitely recommend to our friends, and would love to come back. -Peter and Julia Schott Fargo, ND We absolutely loved our stay here. It is the perfect place for relaxing, and we enjoyed many mornings drinking coffee on the deck. We appreciate how clean and organized everything was in the house - what a beautiful place. We hope to be back! -Micah and Kimberly Schott Rochestor, MN
