About Us

Steven & Liz Uttecht purchased JC Stage Stop from Jeff & Cheryl Plucker in August 2021 looking for an opportunity to change their lives.

Steven is a born and raised Black Hills native with extensive carpentry knowledge and mechanical know-how. He is currently a commercial construction superintendent by day, the resort business developer in his spare moments.

Liz moved to the area in 2007 and is a veterinarian for horses, dogs, and cats, in Belle Fourche, SD; her role at the Stage Stop is reservations and book-keeping.

Our children, Everly (7) and Owen (2), are already enjoying all the room to roam and meeting all the wonderful people that have come to visit us since we have moved in JC Stage Stop is such a beautiful place that we are excited to share it with everyone!

We can’t wait to meet you, come when you can stay awhile!
