We had a wonderful time at Sweetgrass over the Memorial Day weekend. We met the new owners and two of their three teenaged off spring. All were friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to see and do. Room was large, clean and quiet (a must for my wife). Linens were refreshed daily although not necessary for us. We even...

We stayed in this "B&B" on a cross country drive from South Carolina. We've stayed in several B&Bs before, on our honeymoon and anniversaries, so maybe our expectations were too high, but the website made this place seem so amazing. We expected a very nice room, and our room was fine, but it was not the room that we had... More

My only wish is that among the numerous times that we spoke and had conversations, you would have brought these issues to light. I assure you that if I was not able to correct... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights while travelling around. The property is situated off junction 57 of Interstate 90 at Rapid City. Follow the signs for Mount Rushmore, as you leave the city for about 6 miles and the B&B is situated opposed the reptile gardens in the mail road. The owners were very pleasant and we discovered...

I'm new to the B & B type of accomodations, but thought it would be fun to give this place a try ~ what a treat! It has a great location for easy access to Mount Rushmore area attractions.

My partner Michael and I found Sweetgrass Inn on Purple Roofs. Shari, the owner, gives people a 10% discount for finding it on there. So we were glad to find a B & B marketing to gay people in Rapid City. We stayed for 8 nights and were thrilled with every aspect of our stay. Shari has a large breakfast... More
