Calamity Peak Lodge was a perfect place for our family of 6 to stay while on our Black Hills vacation. It's in a very scenic spot directly across the highway from Calamity Peak. We stayed in lodge #6 which has a balcony with a great view of Calamity Peak. I spent each morning having coffee in the morning while enjoying... More

Jon, Thanks so much for your review of Calamity Peak Lodge. Joe and I were so glad you choose Calamity Peak Lodge for your stay in the Black Hills. Unit #6 has that great balcony for early morning coffee with that great view. Unit #6 and Unit #10 are my favorites. I'm so glad you enjoyed staying with us. Hope... More

This is a clean family run motel. Joe and Lori are wonderful hosts. This time we stayed in unit 7 one warning is unit 7 has about 30 stairs (units 6 and 9 about 15) Each unit is unique so check review closely. Unit 7 has 2 queens. Power is important to me I use a cpap machine Note its... More

Thank you so much for that great review. When we bought this place we noticed all the outlet had the two prongs. We was able to replace almost half the ones on the motel side before we opened. When we close down for the winter we will be replacing all the rest, just ran out of time this year. We... More

The Custer area offers an array of accommodations which makes choosing difficult. Our first trip to Custer we selected Calamity Peak Lodge and now we're spoiled. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Perfect location not too far from conveniences. Beautiful scenery with the babbling of a historic brook just beneath the cabin window. Polite, helpful, and accommodating hosts who care... More

We didn't have any reservations and found Calamity Peak Lodge on Trip Advisor. We called and Joe the owner was awesome! We had Room #2 which was perfect for us! It was very clean and cozy! Joe even allowed my husband to do a little gold panning in the creek that ran through the property! We really enjoyed our short... More

Absolutely loved Calamity Peak! It was perfect for our little family (including the dog)! The cabin was very clean and in a perfectly located area. The kitchen is equipped with the basics of everything you'll need, including coffee :-) Joe and Lori were great hosts, available if you need them but not intrusive at all. This is truly a family...

Joe, Lori and Linda were all great hosts and we will definitely be back here again. We had cabin 1A and it was small but very nice and clean. We... More

Calamity Peak Lodge is a great little mom and pop joint. We chose it for our vacation because it has separate bedrooms for guest. We were in number 5 which has a king bed in the living room area and a queen bed in a separate bedroom. That was nice as our boys went to bed before we did. The... More

We stayed here after no places were available in Custer, due to the Sturgis Bike Rally overflow. The owner, Joe, was so welcoming and friendly. This was the ONLY place in town that did not hike the prices due to the rally. One star hotels in town were charging $175 per night, and this place was only about $80 (plus... More

Thank you for such a great review. We don't believe in jacking up prices because of a special event. Our rates only change by $15.00 for Sturgis Rally week. We are usually completely booked for that time so I'm glad we were able to get you a room. Our small rooms are cozy but like you said very clean and... More

Jo and Lori were great to work with. We had a wedding in the area and members of our family used nearly every cabin. Cabins 2&3 had an adjoining door, cabins 4&5 were large and had two entrances in each. We also had people in 7, 9 and 10. My husband and I especially enjoyed cabin #6! Great view. Rooms... More
