The Viewhouse - Hinterwood Inn & Cabins
We are Hinterwood Inn & Cabins. Find us online for additional property photos and reviews. The Viewhouse sleeps up to 6 adults & 2 children, or 7 adults max. It has 3 bedrooms (each with a queen bed, full bathroom, a gas fireplace) and a living room couch that folds down. It's centrally located to major attractions with beautiful views. Enjoy privacy and hiking right from the property. It's on two levels which requires use of stairs, but there is an alternative entrance if stairs are an issue. The Viewhouse is a part of Hinterwood Inn & Cabins in Keystone, SD and sleeps a maximum of 8 people, including children. It's one of the rentals in "the Inn" which means it's part of a larger building that hosts a few rentals inside of it. However, all of the rentals in "the Inn" have their own private outside entrances, private decks and/or patios, and private fire pit areas. We don't have shared spaces between rentals on the property and we don't have a lobby, but instead a self check-in process. All of our rentals have heat and A/C, if needed. The Viewhouse has a full size kitchen with an electric stove, microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans, dishes, utensils, baking dishes, a regular coffee maker with provided coffee and filters, salt and pepper, and more. We tried to stock it with everything you might need to cook during your stay. The space also includes all of your towels, bedding, and essentials like toilet paper and paper towels. What we don't provide: shampoo and conditioner (only bar soap for the showers). The kitchen is usually equipped with a few random spices, oils, tin foil, etc., but these are not regularly stocked and are left from previous guests. Every bedroom in The Viewhouse, as well as the living room, has a PTAC heating and cooling unit. The property (and the Black Hills area itself) has limited cell reception. We have satellite internet for the wifi, which may not be the blazing fast speeds you're used to but it's actually pretty good, and enough to communicate and plan your day trips. (Past reviews may mention slower speeds, which was before we got upgraded to Starlink satellite internet in the winter of 2021.) The Viewhouse has a TV in the living room, but you should know it doesn't have local channels or cable — only a DVD player and some provided DVDs. More about Hinterwood: Hinterwood is nestled in a quiet valley in the Black Hills of South Dakota and is centrally located to all the nearby attractions, including a 7.3 mile drive to the Mt. Rushmore National Monument. We are located 5 miles from Keystone and 6 miles from Hill City, both of which have shopping and restaurant options. The Hinterwood property encompasses nearly 20 acres of a peaceful valley and woods, bordered by Black Hills National Forest to the North and East. Hinterwood has 8 different vacation rentals spaced out across the property, as well as a chicken coop, friendly free-ranging chickens, a garden, and a new growing vineyard. Guests can walk right out their front door for a beautiful hike on public National Forest lands, or play yard games in the big open valley of Hinterwood. Among other trails and Forest Service roads to walk, you will have quick access to the noteworthy Centennial Trail, which is a 111-mile hiking trail that stretches through the Black Hills from Bear Butte to Wind Cave. The Centennial Trail will also lead you to Horse Thief Lake for a swim after just a ~25 minute hike. Hinterwood is located between Keystone (which is at the base of Mt. Rushmore) and Hill City on Old Hill City Road. We're approximately 5 miles from Keystone and 6 miles from Hill City — both of which have shopping, dining, and exploring opportunities. The neighborhood is quiet with beautiful views and lots of wild life. The property is located off Old Hill City Road (paved), but our driveway is flat and graveled (approximately 1000 ft.). Since there are no hills, cars make it here just fine. However, in the winter months it might be best to have a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
