Let’s get started.

We provide full-service management so you can enjoy your free time, and your home when you want to. This starts with hiring the right people, including our own Lemon Fresh Cleaners, to offer the best experience possible when it comes to how vacation rentals are listed, cleaned, advertised, and maintained. Trailhound Cabin Co serves the entire Black Hills including Rapid City, Custer, Hill City, Spearfish, Sturgis, Lead and Deadwood, specializing in unique and luxury Black Hills Property Management.

Why us?

Our business thrives on great relationships. We’re big on transparency, on doing what we say we’ll do, and then a little bit more. We’re not shy to say we manage the biggest, baddest, and most unique vacation homes in the Black Hills! That doesn’t happen without incredible collaboration with our owners – we want to hear your ideas and feedback! Additionally, we’re selective on the properties we take on so that we can provide a level of service a large company simply cannot. We’ll keep your property in top shape with maintenance between each stay, dedicated housekeeping and hot tub teams, and even doing many repairs ourselves to keep expenses low. We live close to our cabins and are on call 24/7 for emergencies. No one cares more than we do. That’s our promise to you.

We provide a better experience for your guests.

Born and raised in the area, we love the Black Hills and want to share that excitement with each traveler. We’re happy to go out of our way to ensure the cabin is stocked for a wonderful vacation. Maybe that’s bicycles waiting for them at their cabin along with trail maps, or even a trail guide if they want one. Your guests have it pretty good and we are happy to do the same for you! That’s one of the perks of choosing locally-owned property management. It’s more than just a bed to sleep in. It’s an experience we’ll provide on your behalf.

Black Hills property management by the numbers.

Our rates are competitive and historically our services pay for themselves and then some! We have more than doubled the owner’s net income on some properties by pulling the right levers to increase both occupancy and nightly rate. Renting out your Black Hills vacation rental as a short-term cabin rental is a great way to invest on an asset while still getting to enjoy it when you want. Whether it’s paid off already or part of the plan, careful management is the first step.

“Trailhound Cabin Co was our choice for property management in the Black Hills. These two are go getters, pay attention to details, and communicate with us exceptionally well. Give them an interview! You will be impressed as we were.”
