Went here the end of June, spent two nights. Had tried place we stayed at many years ago first but they suggested here. Happy with our stay. Small room with all the amenities we'd need. We had a room with a double/queen bed and sofa sleeper. If I could have handled sleeping in same bed with tossing and turning mother,... More

We stayed in #5 and were very comfortable. So much better than a hotel. We had a full kitchen and were able to eat several meals at our home for the week. We enjoyed eating out some too and especially enjoyed ice cream at Purple Pie Place. Joe, the owner was very nice and the family runs the business. Very... More

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay in cabins # 6 & 10 at Calamity Peak. It was so much nicer than staying in your standard hotel room. Joe was very friendly and accommodating to our needs. Since he didn't have one cabin available for the whole week. He offered a second cabin so we wouldn't have to leave... More

I called in February to schedule accommodations for a family vacation in early June 2015. Joe, one of the owners, was very gracious and welcoming upon our initial conversation. I ended up needing to reschedule twice over the next few months due to scheduling conflicts and Joe was very accommodating. We arrived in June and stayed for 5 nights. Our... More

We stayed in Cabin #10 for two nights mid-May after Mother's Day. The cabin is very nice with a full kitchen and separate bedroom with a king size bed. It is the last one from the road across the stream from the main motel. It has a large deck that overlooks the stream and some beautiful rock formations across the... More

Joe is a great host, very accommodating, and knowledgeable about the area. Our unit was very clean, spacious for our family of four, and we loved the wood floors/walls. Everything for cooking and cleaning was provided for. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We recently visited the South Dakota Black Hills for the annual Buffalo Round-Up and some sightseeing. Staying at the Calamity Peak Lodge made our trip special. Family run, the hospitality is friendly, attentive, and personal. Offering traditional motel units or cozy cabins, the lodge is located on attractive grounds, with a quiet stream running through it and is directly across... More
