We came for a couple of days and stayed ten! Just loved the gorgeous setting, great location to Custer State Park and the city of Custer, and the friendly interactions with the owners Frank and Susan. They take meticulous, loving care of the place. The cabins are adorable, bathrooms super clean and the grounds well cared for.
