This was our first time staying here but if we are in the Black Hills area again we will definitely be back. The location is great for seeing all of the major sights in the area, this was a great home base for us. The website says they are stocked well but having stayed at other resorts that just had...

Decided to stay here for 5 days during our visit to South Dakota. Nice and quiet grounds, tucked away from the tourist traps. The cabins are all well kept and fully stocked with pretty much everything you need to cook. We cooked almost all of our meals here, which was great because there are not a lot of dining options...

We stayed 3 nights in Bluebird cabin. It was a large wood paneled room w/ a full kitchen, queen bed & a sun porch w/ a twin bed & couch. There was a small table in the kitchen area. It was well stocked w/dishes, pots, a stove, microwave, refrigerator etc. The property is away from the tourist area of Keystone... More

We recently spent four nights in the Dan Patch cabin with another couple. We thought it was perfect for quiet, cleanliness, comfort, privacy, and location. The Dan Patch has two small bedrooms with Queen sized beds, a small but adequate bathroom, a decent sized living room with a dining table, and a kitchen with a full sized refrigerator, microwave, and...

We just returned from a four day stay in the Dan Patch cabin with another couple. If you are looking for clean, comfortable and quiet this is the place. Located close to Keystone, Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park and lots of scenic drives. I would suggest bringing a battery operated radio with you to track severe weather. Cell phone service...

We were very pleased with our stay in the Miners Cabin at BackRoads Inn & Cabins. The location was ideal--off the beaten path, but minutes to Keystone, Mount Rushmore and Custer. We loved the quaint feel with a babbling stream running through the property and the 1880s steam train rolling by. Because we had a long drive and a lot... More

My two sons and I rented the Hugo cabin for 4 nights in mid May. The cabin was far bigger than it looked on the website! It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The bed was extremely comfortable and my teenage son loved having his own area in the sun room! The bath tub was amazing! The cabin... More

We have just returned from our 2 night stay in the Dan Patch cabin at Backroads Inn and Cabins. We traveled from Minnesota to see Mount Rushmore with our five year old. The location was central and easy to find, as well as just a short jaunt to all the sights. The cabin was a great fit for us, well... More

We spent four days and nights in the Golden Slipper. The cabin was very nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. Evan and Rozalyn were likewise very welcoming and nice. Highly recommend this location if you want to stay in the Black Hills with a relatively large group of folks (there were five in our party).
