The High Country Ranch takes time to make sure their guests are happy, which we found to be a norm in the Black Hills area. This place is beautiful, tho. It is close enough to town to be able to do the runs for soda and supplies, but far off enough to feel and know that you have actual peace, you have the Black Hills surrounding you and you can just "sit a spell" and enjoy it all.
The "cabin" (aka nice house) we stayed in was lovely...so clean and well maintained...it had 3 bedrooms, two baths, a hidden "passageway" that was big with the kids, a gas fireplace and a great firepit in our front yard that was a delight to all ages for those nightly bonfires and s'mores. The horses of the Ranch would hang out next to our house and we loved that. Horse rides are available for about $20 an hour. There is plenty of hiking possibilities here and also a pool and play area for the kids. The place prepared a great brkfast every morning for $2 to $3a person, (honor system) and there was always a friendly dog or cat around to nuzzle with you if you wanted.
The prices are high, but you pay premium in the summer months anywhere that you stay in the Black Hills..it's a great place tho and you can easily get to Mt. Rushmore, Custer, Hill City and GREAT Mtn. roads and sights from here. I would highly recommend it...they have various size cabins and also some even bigger houses down the road where some friends stayed..also beautiful. The people are friendly and take great pride in their Ranch.
