My family of four stayed at Mountain View the week of July 4th, 2014. We had the small cabin and it worked perfectly for our family. It was cute, cozy and clean. My 17 year old stayed in the loft, it was a tight but she liked the little private quarters. My 15 year old loved the futon as he... More

Reasonable price, very friendly staff. We felt at home. Great location to go to nearby attractions (Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Rapid City) with a car and not crowded as staying in the middle of cities. If you do not have a car, it's not a good place to stay though. Views are beautiful and we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at the. Mountain View Lodge for 5 nights. It was a great value and a good location to tour the Black Hills. We enjoyed the free breakfast (cereal, toast, bananas, and coffee) and had a fire in the fire pit at night. (Wood was $2.50 a bundle and burned nicely). The staff was very friendly and attended to...

This place is awesome! We were welcomed immediately by the owners with a warm smile and friendly atmosphere. They keep this place extremely clean. The rooms were nicely appointed with rustic charm and have everything you need for a getaway in the beautiful Black Hills. This location is perfect with it's location right off Hwy 16. You are literally minutes... More

Wasn't really blown away. This place just misses all the little details that make a place great to stay. Pay for firewood? You couldn't just throw a few logs in the fire pit considering the cost of the cabin rental? Pool was really small but the kids had fun. Until someone showed up from a local daycare with three kids.... More

You can tell that the owners of the lodge take great pride in their property! I stayed in lodge room #7 for four nights. The room was spotless. The bathroom was cleaner than the one in my own house. The double beds were exceedingly comfortable and the shower was great. Even though the lodge faces a major road, my mom... More

We were completely satisfied with our stay at Mountain View Lodge. The room was very clean, and the owners are very friendly! The location is perfect for visits to all the attractions, and the best kept secret is the little ice cream shop across the street, excellent food, and even a better price! We will be back!!!

Very nice couple who runs this facility. Everything was always so nice and clean. LOVED the deck side seating and grills available to us. Even got to see some Billy Goats one morning. What a lovely area, loved it!

Great location, rooms are cute and very clean. Beautiful mountain views. On a busy road but we never heard traffic while in our room. Having the grills was a great alternative to eating out all the time. Breakfast was toast, oatmeal, fruit, cereals, coffee and juice. We have 4 kids and our room size and layout was perfect. Pool temp... More

The lodge room was fine, but the lodge is right on the road which has lots of traffic. The TV remote did not work, and the TV was a very small flat screen. Breakfast was cereal, donuts, toast and english muffins, and the breakfast eating area was very crowded.
