We stayed for four nights at the Circle View whilst visiting the Badlands and surrounding area. Everything about our stay was excellent including the incredible views from the rear terrace, the rooms and the brilliant breakfasts. Our hosts Philip and Amy Kruse together with their family were so welcoming. There is a communal kitchen for use by all the guests... More

I thought I wrote a review already, but I don't see it. Let me tell you, my family of 8 stayed in room 8 and it was amazing, everything we could possibly have dreamed. I had four adults and 4 kids with us and the kids adored your children and animals. The room was prefect even the sleeper sofa was... More

Our time at Circle View Ranch was far too short. We loved every breakfast and were amazed at the food. The people were wonderful and took our daughter to feed the chickens, play with the cows and see the burrows. The views at dawn off he back porch will take your breath away. What an amazing place. I considered moving... More

When we made these reservations it was because we couldn't get into the place we thought we wanted to stay and we were a little bummed. Turned out to be the best thing that could have happened. As soon as we checked in and put out stuff in our beautiful room we felt so relaxed and like we were visiting... More

Third time we've stayed here on our bike ride across South Dakota. We are here off-season (october) so there was only one other occupancy. Amy and Phil make us feel right at home, almost like family friends staying for a visit. We always learn a little something from Phil about the ranch business. You can cook in the small kitchen...

We stayed at the Circle View Ranch and had such a great time. The rooms are extremely clean, the breakfast is excellent and most importantly, the owners & their children are so friendly. A wonderful place to stay (we stayed two nights) while visiting the Badlands. We highly recommend the Circle View Ranch.

My fiancé and I stayed here one night during a trip to Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands. Neither one of us had ever stayed at a bed and breakfast so we were a little apprehensive as to what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised at what a great experience it was! Everyone who stayed at the Circle View Guest Ranch... More

A truly remote location but a a awesome experience... the family was most welcoming. This is a working ranch with cabins and the bed and breakfast accommodations. House was clean and modern. Breakfast was delicious. Interacting with the family was educational and fun. Just enter sure to buy some food for an evening meal before you get to Interior. You... More

I wish we would have stayed at the Circle View Ranch two nights instead of one. I would have loved to have had more time to walk around their land. We stayed in the lower level of the main house. The room was average, but the views were magnificent. There was a few different items for breakfast and they were... More
