Excellent accommodations, big rooms, nice bath and a wonderful made-to-order home style breakfast. We loved the location as it is in between Rapid City and Black Hills (10 min drive). I highly, highly recommend staying here if visiting Mt Rushmore.

We recently stayed at the Sweetgrass Inn for two nights along with two other couples. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant on the first morning which provided a wide selection of breakfast items to choose from. What we appreciated the most was that we had to leave at 5:00am on the second... More

Clean, nice looking place, breakfast was good and we stayed four nights. It was my wife and I first time staying at a bed and breakfast, we are hooked. So much more personal than a motel/hotel, actually dealt with owner. Monte gave us great information on events going on in the area.

Great location. The room was comfortable and clean. Monte welcomed us and gave us great advise for places to see. Debbie was a delightful server in the restaurant. Breakfast is in a restaurant and offered little variety.

This Bed and breakfast was superb. The breakfast was included and it was so good. The staff were so helpful. One of staff had the next day off and they spent 7 hours showing us around to all of the special monuments, and the place was so quaint and comfortable

This stay was nothing short of wonderful. Clean room, excellent location, and the friendliest people we have ever encountered. The rates were reasonable and the slightly different take on the second B - the breakfast is at the restaurant on site and a welcome change. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We found this in a B&B book and called. We were worried that with Sturgis just ending and a Thunderbird air show at nearby Ellsworth AFB plus Rapid City's art show we would have a hard time finding a 2 night Friday/Sat stay. We were able to check in. It is more a motel with attached restaurant but it is... More

This is a Wonderful place to stay. It is close to the highway but had a country feel about the place. There is a Common area where we could gather and use the full sized refrigerator.
