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

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

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

This is the confirmation email according to our computer records we sent this customer on 3/14/15 @10:00am CDT, clearly stating our deposit policy. This information is also on our website and she was verbally informed of our cancellation policy at the time of making her reservation on the phone, as we do this with all our guests. She had no...
