About Kirk Bertsch
We have lived in the Black Hills all of our lives. This is the best place to relax and enjoy all of the activities during both summer and winter months. I own my own insurance and financial business and build custom cabins on Terry Peak in my sparetime.
Kirk Bertsch purchased this Lodge in 2013
Why Kirk Bertsch chose Lead
I chose this location on Terry Peak because of the beautiful views it has to offer and is only one block from the chairlift. You are only 4 miles from the nearest town of Lead and only 10 minutes from the famous town of Deadwood that also a major gambling town. You are only one hour from the famous Mount Rushmore Memorial.
What makes this Lodge unique
You will enjoy this new lodge that has all of the amenities you need for year-round fun. The 3,300 sq ft of area will give you room to relax and enjoy time with families and friends.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Summer at Terry Peak
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Whispering Pines. There were only 2 things that were frustrating. One was the back yard. We had brought lots of yard games to play, but the weeds and grass were almost knee high, so we couldn't enjoy the yard space at all. The deck was nice, so we could go outside, but there was not enough room to play. The second thing was the thermostat. I am used to setting a temperature and it staying at that temp until I change it. The Nest would decide, at completely random times, to change the temp, sometimes 10 degrees. It was very frustrating to come back to a hot cabin after being out in the summer heat, or to wake up in the middle of the night sweating. Other than those 2 things, I really enjoyed the space.
Wonderful family home
Our family stayed for 6 days. We vacationed throughout the Black Hills National Forest. We didn’t mind the drive. We got pretty good at driving the “hills”.
Wonderful place for reunion!
The house was absolutely perfect for our needs. Plenty of gathering places inside and outside.
We really enjoyed our time in the home, as well as traveling throughout the Black Hills on day trips.
Hot tub jets were not working,
It was a very nice cabin, hot tub jets were not working and there was a broken piece in the hot tub .. other than that it was great
Fabulous Mountain Getaway
Whispering Pines is a beautiful property nestled in the Terry Peak ski area - a truly wonderful cabin for a family vacation, any time of the year. There were 11 of us on our trip and there was still extra room; it is a perfect place for a larger group! Each day, we spent time in close-by areas including Deadwood, Mt. Rushmore, Reptile Gardens and Bear Country USA. We also went on jogs throughout the neighborhood each day and enjoyed the crisp mountain air and stunning views! Prior to our stay, Kirk sent us information about the area which got us so excited but also was referenced many times throughout our trip. He is a great owner to work with and we will definitely stay again when we return to the Blackhills!
Great place to stay and very inviting! Would definitely recommend it!
Thanks Kristy for staying at our cabin and also your review. The cabin has lots of room for large groups and families . It is close to all area attractions . We hope you come back and stay with us again....owners Kirk& Julie
