Shady Rest Motel & Cabins

Custer, SD

The Shady Rest Motel

The Shady Rest Motel is nestled in the pines along the slope of a lovely forested hill conveniently located just three blocks from the heart of downtown Custer. Bordered by City Park on two sides, we offer easy access to play equipment for children and covered picnic areas with grills for family gatherings.

All of our guests receive passes to the Custer City Pool (seasonal) located just three blocks north of our grounds. Biking enthusiasts and those who enjoy scenic hikes will appreciate our quick access to the Mickelson Trail as well as local shopping and restaurants--without the noise and confusion of visitor traffic.

With beautiful knotty-pine interiors, our clean, comfortable, air-conditioned cabins offer unique floor-plans, private bathrooms, kitchenettes, WI-FI, cable TV, and decks. For larger families or those traveling in groups, our Hunting Lodge is available year-round and can sleep 10.

Custer is the perfect launching place for most Black Hills adventures. Centrally located, this charming community is located just minutes from Mt. Rushmore National Memorial, Jewel Cave NM, Wind Cave NP, Custer State Park and Crazy Horse Memorial as well as some of South Dakota’s best hiking, climbing, biking and fishing resources!

When you come to the Black Hills on vacation, be sure to find a place to rest that is committed to helping you and your family have a wonderful time experiencing the incredible beauty and rich heritage of this great state. In Custer, we invite you to "Come Stay With Us!"
