We stayed in the main house and enjoyed a relaxing time in a home environment. The breakfast was amazing. Stunning views in every direction! I liked that there is a kitchen on site if you want to prepare food. There is also a game room. My son's favorite part if the vacation was getting to hold the chickens!

This place was terrific and we would highly recommend it. The breakfast was delicious and gourmet all the way. Room was immaculate. The managers/staff were warm, cordial, prompt. Wifi worked well. There's a nice game room, lots of movies, beautiful scenery outside. It was really great considering the little town of Interior had one bar to eat at, and there... More

My five star rating is based on the available accommodations throughout our South Dakota road trip. So it's rated on a curve, it's not the same as 5 stars in Tokyo or NY. That said, we thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay and wished we could have stayed an additional night. The property is charming, in that Western ranch house... More

Our family is unanimous that this is the best place we have ever stayed! The view is spectacular, our room was clean and cozy, and the family that owns it obviously takes pride in their property. My son who would love to spend his days in his PJ's and play on his iPad was quick to get dressed in the... More

We stayed at the ranch based on a recommendation from a friend. The ranch exceeded my expectations. It sits on top of a big hill with spectacular 360 degree views of the badlands and White River. You can see for miles and miles. We saw beautiful sunsets, lightening, rainbows, and tons of stars. We stayed two nights with our two... More

We stayed two nights in the Tree House cabin at the ranch. The ranch is a few minutes outside of Badlands national park so it's a great base. The cabin is located at the bottom of the ranch's butte away from the main house (so you drive up to breakfast). It had 2 queen beds, a fridge/microwave, small sitting area... More

We are a family of 7, ages from 12 and up. We stayed at the Cowboy Cabin. The Cabin was clean, and comfortable. There was a small refrigerator and a microwave. In another room connected with a door in our cabin was a washing machine and dryer, which you can use for 5$ per load. I was very happy to... More

Our three kids ages 6, 8, and 11 said this was the best place we stayed during our three week road trip from Iowa to Seattle. Why? the cozy feel, the animals they could interact with - including feeding the chickens and calves - and the game room where they played foozball and ping pong in the evening. We all... More

If you are going to the South Dakota Badlands consider staying here. Amy and Phil, plus their animals, are great hosts. The views are spectacular and the breakfasts are on par with anyplace we have stayed, including 5-star hotels. Almost zero light pollution makes it great for stargazing. The Badlands park is close by as is the town of Interior.... More

We spent two nights at the ranch, 7/3-7/5/15, and absolutely loved it. This was the perfect spot for us when visiting the Badlands. We were in Suite 9, which has two queen beds in the bedroom and a pull out couch in the living/kitchen area. The area is spotlessly clean with good beds. The family and workers are extremely friendly.... More
