We live in rapid city, but wanted just a one night getaway...and we hit the jackpot at the Sweetgrass Inn and Shipwreck Lees bar and grill! We stayed in suite 1, which was immaculate, spacious, romantic, and perfectly charming! We enjoyed the rocking chair outside our door, the quiet deck, and the beautiful, serene view! We invited some friends to... More

Great place to stay. Room was large, very clean and had anything needed. If not provided, then they would get it. Be aware that the breakfast is not typical of a true B&B thus the knock down for 4 star instead of 5. Breakfast is off a menu served in the next door salty dog something bar. People friendly, service... More

The Sweetgrass Inn totally met expectations. The service was friendly and efficient. The room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was very spacious. We especially liked the deck to sit on in the evenings. The location was centrally located to all of the sites: Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Badlands, Deadwood. Only 20 minutes from the airport and VERY close... More

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

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...
