Beautiful surroundings and area that this B and B sits. Very friendly and gracious host, check in was a breeze. Very nice room, bed was great. Private patio with hot tub off the bedroom. The bathroom needs some upgrading but it was okay. The breakfast was very, very good but like my husband would say, it was good but not... More

This was the first time we had both been to The Black Hills and what a great central location to venture out in all directions. Ron and Bruce have recently taken ownership of the Black Forest Inn and they are working hard to establish a reputation for great service and hospitality. Each day we would plan a different direction to... More

The Inn is beautiful and is very comfortable. However the customer service at Black Forest Inn was horrible. I was told that we would be treated very special here because it was our honeymoon and that was a lie. I was told there would be a "gift" in our room (flowers or sweets), there wasn't. Our room did not have... More

Good location for Black Hills attractions. The Inn is older and could use some upgrading. Actually we were met with a big sign that said the Inn is for sale. The breakfast was very good and the staff was enjoyable. The cafe attached is leased and seating is outdoors. The food was OK. Don't think we would stay there again.

Our 3 night stay at Black Forest Inn was a great home base for our daily travel itineraries to see Mt Rushmore Custer State Park Crazy Horse and Devils Tower. Each day started with a delicious breakfast prepared by owners Bob and Betty. And with a bistro cafe attached to the B&B we were able to return after a long... More

Was here for a week during a Family Reunion and it couldn't have gone better. I have to eat 'Gluten-Free' so I had brought along some food for Breakfast and figured I'd need to eat that for breakfast or go into town, but the hosts cooked me up some wonderful foods, including Waffle's, Eggs & Sausage, and even had Gluten-Free...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Black Forest Inn. As soon as we arrived Bob and Betty graciously welcomed us to their beautiful Inn. Bob gave us wonderful advice and tips on our trip for the following day as we were visiting several sites around the area. The breakfast was AMAZING! We had fresh fruit, the most incredible... More

After driving all night and most of the day, we were welcomed by Betty and Bob to their beautiful B&B. Located in the Black Hills, it was close to all the sights we wanted to see. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. If we visit this area again, this is where we would stay, and... More

Bob and Betty Barkley are back as innkeepers of the Black Forest Inn and they made our recent stay (April 2014) an immense pleasure. They themselves were friendly, attentive, and indispensable in making our South Dakota vacation a memorable one. They were very helpful to our daily plans and are a wealth of information about the area. The BFI itself... More

The owners Bob and Betty are so welcoming. The atmosphere is so relaxing and rejuvenating. My husband and I have been to several Bed and Breakfasts and this is by far our favorite place to stay in the Black Hills. The food is wonderful and I am looking forward to visiting the bistro this summer.
