What a great place! I am SO glad I stayed here. I had three days in the park and staying at Circle View was a continuation of it really since it is so close. I mean, it is about 6 miles to the entrance of the park but the ranch sits on top of a HIGH hill that overlooks the... More

What a wonderful place with great hospitality! Our room couldn't have been more comfy, food certainly couldn't have been better and the expansive views were the absolute best in the Badlands! The thing that I did not like AT ALL was that we only had one day to be able to enjoy the setting! Praying for a longer stay in... More

Owners were very accommodating and friendly. Clean rooms with exceptional views of White River valley and reservation. Breakfast was great, especially the homemade wheat pancakes. Located close to Badlands NP.

This was our second time to the Badlands.The area is a bit remote and I was not looking forward to staying in a chain hotel and eating diner food. When researching places to stay, I typed in, "best place to stay in the Badlands", and Circleview Guest Ranch popped up. This place did not disappoint! I am fairly particular about... More

We had a wonderful time here! We could have stayed easily a week. Lots of space and things to do with the kids...animals, nature, jungle gym, not to mention all the toys and games inside! The kids were in heaven. And then the food...wow. Amy is an incredible host and mother. Highly recommend...just don't cut it short!

This place was really great! We stayed here with some friends and really loved it, the location is really great with views across the badlands on all sides. The deck outside is nice in both morning and evening. The breakfast here was fantastic, something different and delicious every morning! I would definitely suggest cooking here in the evening (they have... More

My skeptical, urban family was worried about staying on at a ranch as part of our western vacation. Now they say it was a highlight. Beautiful scenery. Friendly guests. Very welcoming hosts. Great spot overall. Can't find a negative thing to say except that we should have stayed longer.

Fantastic family vacation in the Badlands. The location is amazing, on top of a butte--you can see for miles in every direction. The owners, Phil and Amy, are both very friendly, know the area well and are glad to make recommendations for things to see. Amy's breakfasts are wonderful--she accommodated numerous food preferences and restrictions for us. Bring food so... More

When I was a boy, 9% of the U.S. population was on the farm/ranch. Now I am told that it is about 1%. A stunning decline. There can't be many opportunities left to experience a wonderful way of American life, and to get a sense of our Western history and tradition. This is one of them. This is a working... More

This was our first time staying on a ranch and we had a great time. This place is family-friendly, the owners have 3 kids. The area is beautiful, you get a great view and sunsets of the Badlands. The room we stayed in was super clean, cozy, and comfortable. The breakfasts cooked by the owner's wife, Amy, were delicious, lots... More
