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

This was the perfect place for our party of 4. Close to all the Black Hills attractions. Jim and Marla were great hosts, helpful and very accommodating. The rooms were very clean and adequately supplied for our stay. I would recommend Whispering Winds Cottages for value, location, and cleanliness. Would definitely stay there again!

On Labor day weekend with no thought of the time. 9Pm rolls around and we decide to stay. We seached and called numerous hotels, cabins, motels. You name it,... More

We just got back from a 4 night stay at Whispering Winds. We stayed in the Sportsman's Cottage. It was the perfect size for our family. This is our second time staying, and it is perfect! My husband and I have three little girls (4, 2, and 7 months) and my mom also joined us. There is one private room... More
