My college-age son and I stayed in the Heritage Room in the Folks' House because it had twin beds - perfect for us. Loved the location. Since my son was interested in learning about Pine Ridge Reservation, this was a wonderful place to stay. The hosts even arranged for us (by request) a tour with a local Lakota Indian guide... More

I'm actually not from South Dakota....in fact, I'd never been there before but when I arrived at Wakpamni ...it felt like coming home. Betty, the owner, greeted us when we arrived and showed us around the house we were to stay in. The house we stayed in has been in the family for generations and it afforded all the charm... More

Wakpamni is not the most luxurious B&B in the world, but it is quite charming, and if you're interested in staying on or near Pine Ridge, it is a best bet. The rooms are in the original house from way back when, and are perfectly functional. The common areas are also solid, and the living room is decorated and accessorized... More

Our group of friends were volunteering on the Pine Ridge reservation for the week and decided to stay a few extra days to go to the pow wow and parade. With limited lodging options on the rez, we choose Wakpamni B and B and made a reservation for 4 in early May. We asked for 2 rooms, close to one... More

The positives: the beds were very comfortable, the rooms clean, hot water for the shower seemed ample and the breakfast was delicious. The negatives: 1. There was 4 people in our party, a couple and 2 singles. We made reservations for 2 rooms in the guest house (separate from the main house) months before our stay, one room having 1... More

We have been staying at this B&B for years. The owners are pleasant outgoing knowledgable individuals. The location is beautiful. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is out of this world. Betty goes all out. Conversations with Larry what we look forward to year after year. Close by to powwow events and the sunsets are unmatched. Best place to... More

I stayed here in both 2002 and 2006 - very nice base for exploring the Pine Ridge Indian reservation, and don't listen to those rumors - it's not dangerous to travel to the Rez. I have been there twice and going again this year and the people there are warm and welcoming:) If you are genuine interested in their culture,... More
