Holy Smoke Resort was a wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed our stay there very much. The cabin was lovely. We stayed in cabin 13B. It was at the very top of the hill. The view was amazing! It was a prime location located between Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer Park. The location is breath taking. However, the restaurant... More

Hello Caroline, Thanks for the great review and thank you for your business. I retired from the restaurant business after 40+ years in food and beverage. It was a great run but I needed to breathe. Glad you enjoyed the Powder House and the food was excellent. We keep their menu in our cabins for our guests. Again thank you... More

Had a terrific stay in Holy Smoke's 4190 sf "log cabin" . What a great place for a. Family reunion. Right in the heart of all the Black Hills have to offer,and practically in the shadow of Mt. Rushmore. The owner was very helpful in offering suggestions to maximize our short stay. Don't miss the nine hour bus tour that... More

We (four sorority sisters) had a FANTASTIC weekend at the Holy Smoke Resort. Our visit began with the owner meeting us at the gate to the cabin’s grounds. When we entered the 4190 sq. ft. cabin, it took our breath away and far surpassed our wildest dreams and expectations. Every inch of this pristine cabin has been personally decorated by... More

We rented cabin 17 for one night and were extremely impressed. It looked brand new! Close to the best steakhouse I've ever eaten at, the Powerhouse. Lady at front was extremely helpful booking over the phone a month in advance and when I got there she was just as sweet as I imagined. We had coworkers sharing a place on... More

In Sept 2013 we stayed in The Nugget, cabin #7. It is a historical cabin built in 1893. It was very enjoyable. An extra room has been added on for a bathroom so that you now have modern conveniences. This is the only way I would "camp":) Located in a nice, quiet area outside of Keystone, yet still close enough... More

We stayed in cabins 13b and 15b. Both were awesome and the kids loved the loft areas. The location was perfect - central to everything - The Monument, Hill City, Custer State Park, the Alpine Slides, caves and restaurants. The staff at Holy Smokes were personable and welcoming. Thank you!

We stayed at your place just a few weeks ago and we both really enjoyed the location of the Cabins. Out away from Keystone town made it more enjoyable. Hardly any noise. 😀 The service we recieved was awesome. The House Keeper kept the entire area including the Cabin spotless. She was also very friendly. Couldn't ask for anything better... More

We stayed in cabin #18 and it was excellent. It was one of there new cabins and it didn't disappoint. It was great they cleaned it everyday. So glad we went this route instead of cramming in a hotel. It was very quiet. I guess the only minor complaint would be is that you get very few channels on TV

Wow, we are getting great reviews on all the cabins and especially the new ones. We are doing two more this Fall with a totally different layout and hope the reviews continue. Glad you loved it.

My family of four stayed in a clean cabin here instead of paying ($$$) at an overpriced hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Its close to Rushmore and Crazy Horse memorials, and all area attractions--very easy to Rapid City. If you're not staying at a National Park campsite and want to be in town, stay here.
