Spectacular setting for this rustic resort. Comfortable rooms. Hiking trails at various levels from easy for seniors to vigorous for hikers. Restaurant has a set menu with a variety of choices. Great place to stay while sightseeing Custer State Park, Devil's Tower, etc.

The lodge was great and the room was very comfortable. If you like hiking or just a nice place to look around this is for you. We were there on a Sunday night so it seemed like we had the place to ourselves.

The very best thing about this lodge is its location right in the middle of the lovely Spearfish Canyon. We stayed in the Theodore Roosevelt Suite (on 2nd floor; no elevator) . . . balcony with a marvelous view of the canyon. Very large, but with a somewhat strange layout. The kitchen was unnecessarily large with many cupboards, a bar... More

The history and location of this resort are very unique. It is nestled on a long and winding mountain pass next to a fast moving creek and waterfall in an amongst tall pine. It is breathtaking! The accommodations and the staff are wonderful. The food was excellent. There are all sorts of suites and packages that are probably well worth... More

The lodge is very nice and has been updated. The lodge is within hiking distance to two waterfalls (RoughLock Falls and Spearfish Falls) and within driving distance to Bridal Veil falls. The location is beautiful for relaxation or hiking, whichever you shall choose. The hot tubs with LED lights on an upper deck was a nice treat to a hiking... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights during Sturgis on our way to Yellowstone a few weeks back. We arrived a day early and the staff members were very accommodating and we were able to book a last minute reservation for a second night. The beautiful drive through the Black Hills itself was reason enough to stay at... More

This is a beautiful out-of-the-way lodge located on one of the most scenic drives in the Black Hills. We booked it on the Sturgis Rally website when we decided to go, a last minute decision. "Rainy" was the word for the rally this year and the location of the lodge made it a challenge. A basic bar in the common... More

The main thing this Lodge has going for it is the location, which is lovely: beautiful views and close to several waterfalls. The Bridal Veil Falls Suite is a nice size, but the location of the room is not great. The private patio is directly above the public patio where smokers congregate. Service was not great. We had a confirmation... More

Just spent a week at the lodge with wife. Place is very nice and extremely clean. The staff is very nice and goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The Latchstring Restaurant across the street, is part of the Lodge. However , the food is average at best . Plenty of choices in nearby Deadwood and Spearfish,... More

It didn't start well. When we arrived, there seemed to be a plague of flying insects in the car park. (Apparently they are a problem for a few days each year. We chose the wrong days!). After checking in we went to our room. It had not been serviced from the previous night so we had to repair to the... More
