We were only here 2 nights, but wished it was much longer! The kids were thrilled to have such a big area to run around outside (including a play set). We loved the cabin, the nightly fire and the feeling of home. The owners are outstanding! Friendly and welcoming. They take great care of the cottages. We hope to go... More

I wouldn't change anything about Whispering Winds except a pay washer and dryer on site would make it perfect. The staff are the best and location is perfect. They really know how to help motorcyclist out. The camp fires and conversations at end if day was great

We stayed 4 nights and were very pleased with everything. Jim and Marla were very friendly and accommodating, Our cabin was very nice, and the property was beautiful. The perfect spot for all of the places we wanted to visit. The only thing we'd do differently next time is allow more time in our days to relax and enjoy the... More

Our family had a great stay at Whispering Winds Cottages. The hosts Jim and Marla have done a fantastic job on making this place feel so comfortable. Having the use of gas grills and patio areas out by the fire was wonderful. Jim always had a fire going by the time evening rolled around, and plenty of firewood to keep... More

The outside area was fantastic. He has grills that you can cook your food on. He also has fire every night. I will go... More

What a great place to stay, we were there the second week of July on our Motorcycle and had a GREAT time. Jim and Marla are very gracious host and Jim gave us lots of ideas on different roads around the area that had less traffic but better views. We will be staying here again!

We needed a quiet weekend away so chose a cottage at Whispering Winds as it looked so inviting and peaceful in the pictures on line. It was everything we wanted. The cabin was spotlessly clean and very comfortable and so peaceful and quiet. Loved the way the tropical cabin was decorated. We could tour the Black Hills from there as... More

We had an amazing time staying at Whispering Winds in the queen cabin 'Iron Horse'. You can see the effort that has been put in in the detailed touches of the cabins. Jim and Marla are the friendliest people you could hope to meet and every night Jim lights the firepit. We met some fantastic locals by the fire and... More
