We recently stayed at Whispering Winds and had a wonderful time. The new owners, Chuck & Anjar are very accommodating and made us feel right at home. We stayed in the Family Cottage and it was roomy, comfortable and well kept. After arriving it became immediately clear that they take the utmost care in keeping the cottages and grounds clean...

Had a wonderful experience staying here. We try to change it up when we go up every fall from Omaha, NE but this place is a keeper. Marla and Jim were perfect hosts and the cottage was so clean, well stocked, and beautifully decorated. The grounds are well kept. Bonfire every nite and grills to use if you want. Will... More

We spend three nights here in this August. The cabin was very comfortable and the owners are as nice as can be. The location is convenient to all the Black Hills attractions. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

This was a 2 night stay for my family, on a 2 week long road trip. By far the most pleasant stay we had. We stayed in the Nautical Room - very cute and cheery. The room was very clean and comfortable, but it's the attention to detail that made it stand out. The room was well laid out and... More

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

This is the third time we have stayed at Whispering Winds cottages! We have a 5 year old, a 3 year old, and a 20 month old. This was the perfect place to stay! We stayed in the Sportman's cottage and it was perfect! The private room has a queen bed and a double bed and a tv that plays... More

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

We were on a motorcycle trip going through there the middle of June. Jim was the best Inn Keep ever. He was great to talk to. The place is set up perfectly. The cabins were great. 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
