“Great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at the Blue Bird cabin at the Echo Valley Rd location. The cabin was beautifully updated and decorated, and had everything we needed (the 'fold-out couch' wasn't much tho) This particular cabin is on a hillside and didn't have as much of a 'yard' as the others in this spot, but was wonderfully quiet. The location is perfect, near Keystone for shopping and dining, and in the heart of the Black Hills - Mt Rushmore and all the sights nearby. Yet it is truly a 'back roads' cabin, on a very quiet road in a beautiful and scenic area. Loved it.

A group of 14 of us stayed in 3 of the cabins during a road trip from Chicago to Vancouver (Silver Mountain #2 which was huge, Silver Lining and Coon Hollow which were small but comfortable). This place proved an ideal launching point for seeing Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse memorial.

With its forest setting, barbecue facilities, generously sized hot tub and pretty little pool, we ended up having a wonderful time for the two nights that we were here.

Note that not all of the cabins are at the same location. Only the ones listed above plus Silver Mountain #1 and Silver Moon are near the pool & hot tub!

Room Tip: Some of the cabins are at a different location - ask for a cabin near the pool & hot tub.

I was part of a group of 13 British road-trippers who stayed here recently.

We loved the place. The big communal lounge, kitchen's BBQs worked well. The pool was great. The hot-tub excellent.

Thanks for a great stay.

We (my daughter, 2 grandsons and myself) stayed at the Dan Patch cabin at the Echo Valley location for 4 nights. It was absolutely perfect for us. It is in a very private, secluded location but still very close to all the attractions. The cabin was much, much nicer than the pictures looked like on their website (clean and nicely decorated). The kitchen had full size appliances and everything you could possibly need. We were not able to use the campfire as there was a burning ban in effect for the entire area but were still able to enjoy the nice deck and watch the deer and turkeys every morning and evening. It is perfect if you have kids, as the location allows them to burn off excess energy after being in the car sightseeing for hours. So much nicer than being cooped up in a hotel. The kids also loved the horse swing, the pool, and hiking up in the trails behind the small cabins. When we gave them the choice of going back to the cabin or on to another attraction, they always chose going back to the cabin. We hope to return again next time we visit the area.

We so enjoyed our stay at the cabins. The kids loved playing outside on "Donkey Kong" the tire swing as well as swimming while I grilled and made supper. It was so conveniently located to just about everything we wanted to do while being tucked away in the tall pine trees from the hustle and bustle of main roads. It was really quiet, calming and relaxing. Thank you and God bless!

We (my two kids, husband and myself) stayed at the Dan Patch cabin in the Echo Valley cabins in late July this year, and were very happy with the cabin itself, the setting and the location. Everything was very clean and the cabin was very well appointed, with everything we needed. We especially appreciated the ceiling fans in the bedrooms as it was pretty warm. The kids loved the horse swing and the pool, and we liked the quiet, watching the deer in the garden, and basically the feeling of being away from it all, while being just a few miles from Keystone, the highway, Custer State Park and Mount Rushmore.

Stayed at the Echo Valley lodges for 4 nights with my hubby & two kids. Wonderful central location to all the sights we wanted to see. Off the beaten path, we even had deer walk past while eating supper outside. The cabin was nicely done, had everything we needed and we really appreciated the air conditioning on the 106 degree day! The pool was perfect for my two small children. I would go back in a heartbeat if I'm in the area again and would recommend it to my family & friends.
