We spent two nights at the Spearfish Canyon Lodge recently on vacation. What a treat to find the lodge in such serene and peaceful surroundings. The staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby was inviting and a wonderful place to read or gather with family. The room had a perfectly delightful little stuffed bear named Dakota on the bed with two robes to use for our visit. At first, we were a little distressed that the air conditioner was an energy saver that only came on at a certain temperature but we turned the fan on and opened the window and before morning we were scrambling for a blanket because of the cool canyon air. The Latchstring Restaurant was a delightful surprise with excellent food. The waterfall was a wonderful surprise. Can't wait to come back to the lodge.
