I have to start out by saying that the people who run the cabins are lovely. Very kind and courteous. However, I also need to be honest and say we were disappointed in our cabin. It is indeed right along the major thoroughfare leading to Mount Rushmore, not nestled in the woods. Also, the lighting in our cabin was so... More

We found this place by accident and what a jewel. Thankfully they had a cabin open as we had not planned ahead and made reservations. We had a one room with a king bed, kitchenette and bathroom. There was also a grill and table and chairs outside. The hot tub was wonderful after a day of sight seeing. The owners... More

We were under the impression we would have a small cabin out in the woods where we could enjoy the evening on our front porch. Well it is in the black hills but your front porch is about 10 paces to one of the busiest highways in the black hills you can not even hear each other speak inside the... More

My gut instinct was to defend ourselves and our many return guests who love the cabin you were in, some of whom over the years have even said "don't change a thing". Unbeknownst to you , we did change quite a few things ; however , your impression still matters and we are taking it under consideration. Of course our... More

My family and I stayed for 4 nights over the 4th of July weekend. The cabin (#5) was fantastic! Clean, spacious (for 4 people), comfortable, and historic. The staff were friendly and helpful as well. My only criticism is the road noise...this place would be perfect if it were just a half mile from the highway. One of the dogs... More

If you want the true ambience of staying in the Black Hills of South Dakota, this is the place. The cabins are rustic, yet comfortable. Jan and Steve were very congenial and helpful hosts, with suggestions of where to eat and what to see. We were two couples in our 60's and were very comfortable in Cabin #5, the oldest... More

And if walls could talk, old Cabin #5 would tell you even more - I'm delighted you enjoyed the mystery stories and the cabin. It really is nice living in the center of the Black Hills, a little bit out in the country, yet a quick trip into Hill City for whatever one might need - glad you liked the... More

Pine Rest Cabins is an excellent location and beautiful place to stay. Steven and Jan did a wonderful job of decorating their home and creating a comfortable place to stay. There is a beautiful river in the backyard that has a peaceful sound in the mornings and throughout the day. Downtown Black Hills is a 5 to 10 minute walk... More

I can not begin to adequately review this diamond in the rough. The environment was exactly what would expect from the woods The grounds were clean. The weather was incredible except for a rain fall that added to the ambiance of the black hills. The cabin was quaint as the town and the owners Jan and Steve should teach a... More

We stayed four nights in the beginning of June. I booked the "Birch" cabin since it was advertised as having free Wi-Fi on the website and being close to Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. The cabin itself was nice and clean and was just down the road from all the restaurants in Hill City. It is just off the main... More

We selected cabin #5 because it was described as a 100 year old cabin. We hit a gold mine! This cabin had so much character, close to the mountain, quiet, a cozy fireplace, and plenty of room to stretch out. We bought food at the local store and the kitchen was more than adequate to prepare our meal. Jan was... More
