EMERAL PINES REFUGE B & B
Our 3rd night in the Black Hills we stayed at Emerald Pines B & B what a wonderful place, my husband is so picky when it comes to a B & B. He was extremely happy with the hospitality of Marilyn and Al at Emerald Pines, he didn't feel very welcome at the lodge we stayed at the night before. Both Marilyn and Al were really nice they have been married 44 years and still look happy. We stayed in the Knotty Pine room on the lower level the bathroom was so huge in this room. Normally breakfast is served around 8:30a.m. but we had to leave earlier so Marilyn set breakfast at 8:00a.m. for us with the other guests approval. Which I am very glad we didn't miss it was sooooo good, she fixed a real fresh fruit cup with Blueberries, Raspberries, Grapes and peaches that tasted like they had just been picked that morning. They also made us homeade breakfast pizza oh my gosh amazing! Marilyn and Al HAD SO MANY EXTRAS, A HOT WATER POT WITH A BASKET OF TEAS, HOT CHOCOLATE, COFFEE, CANDY DISH, MARILYN MADE HOMEADE BROWNIES AND SET THEM BY THE COFFEE CUPS IN OUR ROOM, THERE WAS A SNACK BASKET WITH DORITOS, CHEETOS, A CAN OF STRAWBERRY COUNTRY TIME LEMONADE, AND WILD CHERRY PEPSI, BOTTLED WATER, COTTON BALLS, AND QTIPS IN BATHROOM, THERE IS A SEPERATE BATHROOM SINK AREA, AND THEN A HUGE ROOM WHERE THE JACUZZI IS, HAS A SINK, JACUZZI BATH SOAP PACKAGES, THE HOUSE ITSELF WAS REALLY BEAUTIFUL LOOKED LIKE A LOG CABIN, THEY ONLY HAVE 2 ROOMS, A HELPFUL TIP WHEN YOU TURN ON EMERALD PINES DRIVE JUST GO STRAIGHT BACK UNTIL YOU CAN'T GO ANYMORE YOU WILL GO RIGHT INTO THEIR DRIVEWAY. THE GPS HAD US STOP AT THEIR MAILBOX WHICH IS NOT BY THEIR HOUSE! IT IS EASY TO FIND. I WOULD STAY THERE ANYTIME AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE. There was also a HUGE brochure rack filled with information for all the activities the Black Hills had to offer. There was no tv in the room but they had a big tv room with a large movie selection that was all ours, we basically had the whole lower level to ourselves but we were too tired to watch tv. They had a phone in the room, and alarm clock, I needed an iron and Marilyn got me one right away along with an ironing. You can hear light footsteps across the ceiling but it wasn't after 10:00p.m. I am an extremely light sleeper and I had no problem sleeping, that would not detour me from staying there by any means, I just try to be as honest and thorough as possible with my reviews.
