Great little place outside Custer. Booked this place last minute. Just passing through during Sturgis bike week. Owners very friendly and helpful. Clean, comfortable room. Great value. Would definitely return.

Calamity Peak Lodge was a wonderful place to stay. Our cabin was clean and cozy. The location was perfect, close to all of our favorite Black Hills destinations. We will definitely come back here again.

We have stayed at Calamity Peak for many years each July for family reunion. We come back because of the setting and the configuration of the units. Great for groups with kids. This year, we were especially pleased with the new owners. They are very accommodating to the needs of their guests. Already planning next years stay!

We were 10 people staying in the house available for rent at Calamity peak. My sister and her friend had #9 which had it's own separate entrance from the outside, but they could still come down the stairs to join us for meals. We grilled a couple of nights and Joel provided charcoal and lighter fluid left by previous guests.... More

Don't let the modest appearance fool you! We are fussy travelers and were pleasantly surprised!! Our room was very clean and cozy. The owners were gracious and accommodating. The location is superb! We came to 4-wheel and were happy to find out (with a temporary road license) we could access trails right from our Unit. We stayed 5 nights and... More

My husband, grandson and I stayed one night in #10 at Calamity Peak Lodge, and we enjoyed our stay very much. We loved the creek next to our cabin, the cleanliness, but mostly the friendly attentive attitude of the owners. A sliding screen door needed attention, and Joe and his son were there quickly to take care of the problem.... More

This is a basic,1950s style roadside motel with a very nice setting. The folks who run it are friendly and helpful. Rooms are not fancy - but the price and location are awesome. If you're looking for a good deal, this is it.

This is a great location to just about everything in black hills, just outside of Custer. We stayed in #8. Which is the original house. They also rent out the upstairs and you can hear voices and walking when you are in the bathroom. I believe you can rent out both units too. I loved having laundry in the place.... More

Our family was in town for a wedding last week. I had made the reservations a year ago and was really excited to see our cabins. We rented 8 and 9 which are connected by a staircase. It was perfect for all us...large dining area with a large kitchen and a washer/dryer for when my granddaughters got their cloths dirty!... More

We recently stayed at Calamity Peak Lodge / Unit 6. It was a great stay. The owners were so nice. The place was clean and comfortable. The full side bed / bedroom location was a bit tight, but the 2 kids slept there, so it was okay. It had a great view of the peaks across the road. We sat... More
