Description of the Hill City vacation home rental
This Luxury Home like the aerie of an eagle high atop a rocky ridge. Below, the wide valley rolls away for miles upon miles. A long driveway, bordered by streams and shadowy forest, winds its way up to the house, a magical combination of wood, solid stone and ethereal glass. Palatial, sumptuous, and filled with splendid works of art, this home begins with a two-story, light-filled entryway. Thick log walls and tree trunk supports contrast with fine antiques and soft, rich fabrics. The living and dining areas are divided by a massive two-sided stone fireplace and illuminated by a 35-foot-high wall of windows. French doors open to a backdrop of dark green firs and pale aspen, separate seating areas face the fire and the panorama outside. One painter created a huge, stunning canvas in oil an entire wall, it creates as vivid an opening of perspective as do the soaring windows.

The grand kitchen is fit for a professional chef. Its centerpiece is a large gas range set like a medieval hearth inside a hammered copper and stone alcove. A flat-screen television, hidden inside the stone countertop, rises and swivels at the touch of a button, and can be seen from the cooking area, the long, built-in breakfast banquet, and the dining room. A stone-topped island separates the kitchen from the dining room, where the long table, overhung by an antler chandelier, seats ten.

A rustic staircase, with a cast bronze twig-and-branch handrail by a sculptor, curves majestically up both sides of the front entryway. A second-story walkway crosses the big open space over the living room and leads to the sleeping quarters. Each of the five bedrooms is a master suite, filled with light from the high, copper-framed windows, decorated with bold furnishings and textured fabrics. Each has its own stone fireplace, with hand-crafted cast iron and glass doors. The deep wilderness beyond the bedroom windows, and the lacy green woods or mountains capped in snow provide a satisfying contrast to the comfort and luxury within.

Thick log walls, tree-trunk beams and patterned bedspreads make the spacious bedrooms snug and cabin-like. Each one has a hand-built bed with reading lights positioned at either side. Each also has a decadent private bath with double sinks and big soaking tubs, two of which are shaped like oval bowls of polished stone. Some of the bathrooms have stone fireplaces. Glass-walled, rainfall showers and wide windows create the illusion of bathing al fresco.

French doors in the bedrooms open to private terraces or branch-framed porches. The forest runs right up to the house on one side, bringing with it the cool spicy air of the pines. Rich, muted oriental carpets cover the heated floors of the bedrooms, and wall-mounted, flat screen televisions face each of the beds, while beyond every window is an extraordinary panorama of forest, mountains and sky.

The entire eastern side of the house is encircled by a long stone terrace that is almost a home in itself. An outdoor dining area is set next to a large fire pit. Farther along are sitting areas, trap shooting stands and a hot tub. Back inside, a cosmic, two-lane bowling alley, a gorgeous bar room with tufted leather couch, and a casual pub with a billiards table make a day of rain most welcome.

On the lower floor, the lodge also has a state-of-the-art, Weider fitness center, a movie theater that seats twelve in deep leather armchairs, and a truly fabulous indoor hot tub. Ringed with mosaic stone mountains and a painted firmament of blue, it provides the ultimate conclusion or commencement to the day.

The house is fronted by a low stone wall and a three acre pond that reflects the sky like a mirror. A waterfall splashes merrily down a cascade of stones, and then winds its way under the driveway and around the house and can be turned off and on as desired. Stone bridges cross the small, pebbly pond created by the stream. Out on the terrace, the running water provides a light and constant music to morning coffee or evening cocktails as it passes by on its way to the dark green woods a favorite haunt for moose and down to one of the three private ponds teaming with cutthroat trout.

One could spend hours exploring the interesting corners, wonderful details and tremendous works of art inside the house, but the home is also the perfect launching pad for skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, fishing, swimming or canoeing in the pond, and day trips into wonderful Jackson. And despite its high luxury and fine art, the house is completely child and dog friendly. It is a spectacular property, the overture to an unforgettable vacation.
Area Information

This was our 2nd trip to creek side cabin and it is a great place to stay. Plenty of room very quite and best of all No cell service makes for great family time. Lots of trails close to the cabin. Wes has always been great to deal with and responds to questions quickly. I am sure we will return.

The cabin was everything we hoped for and more. The pictures online honestly don't do it justice. With a total of 6 people on our family vacation we had plenty of room in the house. That being said who would want to stay inside when there is so much to see from the deck. The view of the creek and nearby hills was simply awesome. We were a bit worried when we found out there wasn't any internet or cell service at the cabin but we ended up finding that being unplugged for a few days was a nice getaway from everything. The rental process was pretty simple and the owner was quick to answer any questions we had. Heading back up to the Black Hills again this summer and would be staying here again if the cabin weren't already booked up.

My family and friends had a long year of work and needed a vacation, we booked this Beautiful home in the Black Hills. This home is Beautiful and is nestled in between the mountains. As you sit at the patio in the back yard,The babbling creek will gently lull you to sleep, it is so peaceful there! Deer were in the field next door and part of the time bedded in the yard itself and were up at the deck by daylight! We loved that! Turkeys would come down from the mountain some mornings! It was just the relaxing time we needed from a hectic year! The home had plenty of room, and 4 bedrooms and 2 bathroom, it worked out great for us! The young people (and the old "er" also) enjoyed the game room with the pool table, and us "older" folks especially loved the fireplace! Glenda and Wes were quick and attentive to our needs! They were Great! Thanks guys! There was no issues or down sides to staying there at all! We loved this home and would be happy to recommend it to anyone, and, will come back ourselves! Thank you Wes and thank you Glenda for making our vacation a wonderful memory! Hopefully, we will see you next year!
