Our Black Hills Home Cabins LITTLE PRAIRIE Cabin (this listing, VRBO 857831) is unique, convenient, clean and features the good-natured welcome of pine! Whatever the season, the rates are modest. Please see the detailed description of LITTLE PRAIRIE below the following IMPORTANT NOTES:
NOTE 1a * — Our highest rates for LITTLE PRAIRIE (as shown under the RATES and Availability tab) occur in Summer Season (June 10 - Sept 9). Other seasons have lower rates. (Rates associated with the Sturgis Rally are only $20/night higher than our Standard Rate.)

The VRBO rate formatting allows for a DISCOUNT beginning at the 7th night (covering all of your dates), and that discount is applied when you Request to Book 7 nights or more (Exception: during dates associated with the Sturgis Rally, no discount applies; and there is a minimum of 5 nights during Rally associated dates). Feel free to use the Ask Owner a Question button.

NOTE 1b * — Our rates posted for Little Prairie Cabin are for DOUBLE OCCUPANCY. Additional guests are formatted in at $7 more per person per night. When you Request to Book, you must include/indicate all (how many) in your party. Little Prairie Cabin accommodates up to four people (one must be small); with the sleeping arrangements including a queen bed, twin bed and a sleeping loft/bunk 5'-4" long (for the small one).

No hidden fees (just guest rates for double occupancy and extra guests beyond two, noting that Vrbo adds their fee and the taxes to the first of two otherwise equal payments).

NOTE 1c * — Due to Covid-19, we adopted the Moderate Cancellation Policy (versus the previous Firm 60/30 days deadline). This is the MODERATE Policy: Travelers who cancel at least 30 days before check-in will get back 100% of the amount they've paid. If they cancel between 14 and 30 days before check-in, they'll get back 50%. Otherwise, they won't get a refund.

For your reassurance, we have contingency plans regarding Covid-19 in the event needed. These plans primarily are as follows:
1) Call us when you arrive.
2) We will greet you on the phone, and via social distancing guide you to your accommodation.
3) There, we will brief you without us entering. On the table inside, you will find a Black Hills map and instructions pertaining to certain amenities.
4) If you would like itinerary assistance or if you have any questions, we encourage you to call us using the number provided.
5) Sanitizer and/or wipes will be part of your amenities.

The beauty of a Black Hills vacation is that it is mostly an outside experience!

NOTE 2 * — Though we would like to receive anyone as our guest, THIS POLICY is important to us: We accommodate NON-smokers only (no exceptions); and no tobacco products or vapors or illegal drugs/substances are permitted on this property. Also, NO pets/animals. This is in consideration of the health and well-being of ALL who visit, and the owners.

Therefore, if you are a smoker, simply not smoking on our property is not the whole requirement; but, because smoke scent/residue is carried onto and into the property with you, we ask smokers to make reservations elsewhere - even though we feel you would be very agreeable to meet otherwise. Please understand, we cater to non-smokers, and many of our guests have expressed appreciation for this policy. It is also extremely difficult or impossible to restore a woodsy guest cabin to non-smoking status on short notice. Thank you for understanding.

ALSO NOTE: At all times while on the premises you agree to assume full responsibility for your selves/safety, and for any in your party who cannot assume responsibility for self.

NOTE 3 — (A) BRING YOUR OWN hair dryer. (B) BRING YOUR OWN food and seasonings. (C) 4-cup coffee pot, coffee fixings, plus several fine single serve instant beverage choices will be available in your cabin, along with mugs and other dishes.

NOTE 4 — Within easy walking distance are Hill City's many restaurants, eager to satisfy your meal and dessert needs all day long.


For your BLACK HILLS VACATION, choose our LITTLE PRAIRIE Cabin, offering the built-in beauty of the piney woods, nested within the walls of our property, under one roof with our other in-home cabins. For your comfort in coming and going, you have a private outside entry door, and there is also a service entry door from a hallway within the building which locks on both sides, assuring your privacy. Enjoy current amenities in this cabin-style setting, along with the bounty of conveniences and friendliness found in our historic mountain town, Hill City.

The East Main Street side of our home-based business features a storefront with a log-railed deck for guests and customers. Being not quite downtown is appealing for guests as well as convenient to our in-house SMILING BEAR ANTIQUES SHOP and ESPRESSO BAR. Usual shop hours are 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. M-Tu-W-Thu-F-Sa, May 15 thru Oct 15.

Ground level knotty pine BHHC Little Prairie Cabin (sleeps up to three, plus one small child) has a personal outside entrance and deck at rear of house with a boardwalk leading to the front deck/porch; the 4' shower has two lumbar jets in the private bath; cove heat, AC, ceiling fan, queen pillow top bed, as well as a cozy Nook with twin bed, over which is a log-accented 5'-4" long loft (like a bunk) for a small child who would sleep camp-style with a pad, pillow and fleece sleeping bag.

Other AMENITIES include: a love seat, wireless internet*, satellite hd tv/dvd, undercounter fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender in galley-style kitchenette. (Outdoor grilling and indoor microwave cooking only.)

*INTERNET: Hill City’s cell tower is a 4G. But if you use WIFI we have the service - our WIFI hours are 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily.

Other ITEMS PROVIDED: Bed linens, towels and other usual bathroom items. (Shampoo, Conditioner, Pump Hand Soap and Lotion are all in family sizes—not the individual-sizes seen in motels—and guests are requested to leave the unused contents and containers for subsequent guests.)

Equipped for outdoor grilling and indoor microwave cooking only. Included are tools, hot pads, plates, glasses, silverware, salt, pepper, paper towels. Dish soap and cloth are provided for cleaning utensils and dishes. NOTE - The window and entry door from the deck must be kept closed while grilling, to prevent infusion of smoke into the living quarters.

PICTURE THIS - You will enjoy that the interior of LITTLE PRAIRIE is nearly all wrapped with knotty pine, and one wall is covered with the pumphouse wood from the farm where your hostess was raised. Many other aspects are reminiscent of homesteading on the prairie. Find the rising sun, the moon and the big dipper in this cabin! The large round copper sink embossed with vining wild flowers is set in a hand-crafted contoured vanity.

Sometimes we want the 'Best of Both Worlds'. BHHC Little Prairie Cabin can give you that satisfaction. You can indulge in a cabin-feel vacation while having everything you need or want within walking distance. Being located IN Hill City is quite the convenience.

Black Hills Central Railroad's 1880 TRAIN is just across the street, and the popular MICKELSON TRAIL (hiking, running, biking) follows Railroad Ave and East Main's sidewalk through town, with bike rentals just down the street.

Hill City has two laundromats. A full service grocery store, Krull's Market, is only a few blocks distance. A number of churches grace this small community, too. HISTORIC DOWNTOWN is where you will find everything from filet mignon to dreamy ice cream to a world class DINOSAUR MUSEUM; plus cafes, grilles and restaurants.

Explore various unique shops and galleries. We would be delighted if you would visit our own Smiling Bear Antiques Shop and Espresso Bar, on location!
