My husband and I spent 2 nights at Orchard Creek Cottages while sightseeing in the area, and although the units are dated, they're clean and have been well maintained. You get a "living room/kitchenette" area and a separate bedroom, so it was much more spacious than a hotel room. We liked the quiet neighborhood location away from the busy town... More

Thank you for the nice rating and review. I am having difficulty locating which cottage you were in from your screen name, so that I may effectively address the A/C issue. If you have a chance and would like to, please drop me an email. The wireless problem has been corrected since your stay. We recently had a access point... More

This was a good stop. It was very clean and had a kitchen w/ full frig. It does not have a blow drier or breakfast. Beds were small for two adults, but my man sized son slept on futon w/o problems. Bathroom was very small. Owners were very nice and helpful.

Thanks for staying with us! Sorry we do not serve breakfast, but we are not a chain motel that can effectively build the cost of licensing, staff and the required separate kitchen/preparation facilities into the rate, not to mention the cost of the food. I certainly wish we could, but with only 12 cottages, it is just not practical. We... More

I knew we were in good hands from the moment I spoke to Mark. We were treated very well. The cottage was clean and quiet. It was a nice area, especially for our two girls to run around! The beds were comfy and the cottage had everything we needed (sink, fridge, shower, toliet, utensils, dishes, coffee pot, etc). The next... More

We stayed at the Orchard Creek Cottages for a week in June. I had a good feeling based on my communications with Mark prior to our arrival, and I felt even better when we arrived. First, you should know that the cottages are located on a property in a residential neighborhood in Spearfish; it's not a faceless corporate hotel in... More

The owner Mark is very nice and was able to recommend some restaurants including dough traders that we walked to - fantastic. We also enjoyed a dinner outside on one of the many picnic tables. This place was a bit tight for a family of 4. Includes 2 teenagers. Very clean and had lots of hooks in bathroom that so... More

Thank you for your honest opinion and valid issues you pointed out. The holes in the towels comment created quite a stir with the housekeepers. They went through every towel on the property and pulled all that were questionable. Yes, the bed in your particular cottage, while relatively new, is very soft. We shall consider replacing it with a firmer... More

This stay was beyond great!! Mark was very helpful with anything we asked. He would come and tell us hi anytime he saw us. The first night he let us use the grill for supper and also gave us a fire pit for the night. Great service. I have two young boys so he was helpful by giving us a... More

Our family stayed here for a few days and really liked the larger space. As stated before Mark is a great host. Amenities are basic but very adequate. Certainly would recommend the cottages as the best place is Spearfish. One knock on the site is a lack of parking but not too bad.

Our daughter lives in Spearfish so we have stayed at several hotels. Orchard Creek was by far the best place we have stayed, both money and comfort! Mark was incredibly hospitable and helpful, the 5 nights we spent were great. The housekeeping was above and beyond, plenty of lawn chairs under shady trees, use of a grill and super comfy... More

16 people descended on poor Mark at Orchard Creek Cottages for 4 days, he was up to the task though. Saturday morning we all decided to have breakfast at one cottage Mark was gracious enough to offer us more pans for cooking and a toaster. The cottages are clean and very nice with comfortable beds. After 4 days of Mark's... More

My 25 year old grandson and I spent one night at Orchard Creek Cottages, but I wish we could have stayed a week. It is a wonderful “home away from home”. We had a two room cabin right next to the office. We were greeted warmly and by name when we first walked in the door by Mark. Mark is... More
