We stayed in cabin 53 and it was great!! The rooms were clean and the views were pretty. Staff was great and the restaurant was fabulous!! Pool was nice too!! The beds in the lift were too short for our 12 and 8 year old, but our 8 yr old is also in the 90tg percentile for ht and wt.... More

Four years after our first stay, we returned to Powder House on our way home from a family vacation in MT. Once again, this place left us with wonderful memories. The food and lodging are remarkable! My husband and I stayed in Cabin 26, a small little cabin just above the restaurant parking lot. It was cute and clean, the... More

Great rate and service. Room was updated and had a comfortable bed. They have a very good restaurant. Very close to all the attractions and town. We will stay there again next time we go. The wifi in the room was a little week. We ended up tethered to our phone as it was a faster connection.

Very nice cottage! Close to the Black Hills and Mt Rushmore etc. The restaurant had awesome food. The only negatives were the bath towels weren't the best and the in room coffee wasn't real good. The pool was nice but unfortunately there always seemed to be a hillbilly family that pretty much took it over. Otherwise I would have given... More

Just a couple miles from touristy Keystone, the Powder House provides a bit of friendly seclusion perfect for a family vacation. We stayed in a cabin with our family of four and found it just right. It was clean and looked newer and had nice amenities--porch swing on deck, etc. (even if the indoor furniture was a little dated). The... More

We stayed with a family of 4 for 2 nights and had a great experience. Cabin was a perfect size with a little bumped out kitchenette area that gave a bit more space. Cabin was quiet and peaceful. There are a lot of options in this area and we saw many as we were driving around. This lodge is by... More

We loved our stay at Powder House. Our family of four stayed in cabin #57 at the top of the hill. It was super clean, quiet, secluded, and seemed fairly new. The cabin was two minutes from town and about five from Rushmore. The property's restaurant was great and exactly what we were looking for in the Hills. Heated pool... More

So many things about Piwder House exceeded our expectaions. We were pleasantly surprised by the location. We stayed up in the small motel up the hill. The room was clean and adorably decorated. We plan to stay here again in future years.

We were toodling around the Hills and chose this place just outside Keystone proper for our stay. We stayed in #42, one of the duplexes on the hill. It was peaceful and relaxing for our one night stay and we would have stayed a few more days had time permitted! The room was very clean and modern, yet with rustic... More

We stayed in a cabin here for five nights. The cabins are of different sizes and some are standalone, duplex, or multiple units. This place is family owned and the family is very accommodating. The cottages are very clean. Rooms are cleaned and towels are changed daily. Our room had a microwave and a small refrigerator. Tv has 13 channels... More
