“What more can I say??!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Two years ago my husband and I had the great luck of staying at the Summercreek Inn. Sometimes the first impression is so very wonderful and then the second time round things begin to tarnish. NOT IN THIS CASE!!! The place is every bit as beautiful as before, if not better the garden in the back (maybe still in progress) but is already a work of art. The breakfasts are top notch. Nancy you better get to work on a cookbook. The bed is great, the sheets are like floating on a cloud. Nancy and Dan are so very friendly and helpful. The place is Spotless! The movie room is a plus I have never seen before in a B&B with popcorn No Less!! But I have saved the best for last THE SHOWER. I wish I could steal it. Thanks Nancy and Dan for once again giving us a beautiful stay.

Room Tip: No tip needed I don't think you could find a bad one.

We avoid hotels whenever possible and stay at boutique Inns or B&B's. We do not care for stuffy, cluttered Victorians. The Summer Creek Inn is the BEST place we have ever stayed. The rooms are amazing...comfortable, chic with many amenities. The home is beautifully decorated and we had access to so many of the rooms. We enjoyed a movie one night after a day of site seeing in the theater room. The patios (front and back) are beautiful. The Inn Keepers are so friendly but not hovering...they made us feel very welcome and so special. We will definitely be back and have told anyone traveling to the Hills to take a look at The Summer Creek Inn. The value is exceptional and the food is excellent. We will be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 6...it was gorgeous and we loved it.

We recently stayed at Summer Creek Inn and were so glad we did! Innkeepers Nancy and Dan have developed a luxurious inn nestled amongst the Black HIlls. Each suite is beautifully appointed with all modern amenities. The inn itself was built by Dan and decorated by Nancy, which only adds to its warmth and charm. For an extra nominal fee, you can opt for breakfast at the inn each morning. Don't expect your usual scrambled eggs and toast...envision a pastry encrusted baked pear, egg souffle with vegetables, freshly baked blueberry scones and southwestern quiche to name a few of their gourmet treats. Breakfast is a great opportunity to meet the other guests and to chat with Nancy and Dan, who sit with their guests each morning to answer questions, ask about your plans for the day and give suggestions on where to go. If you are headed to the Black HIlls, there is no other place to stay than Summer Creek Inn.

Room Tip: All rooms are sound proof. The two suites on the third floor are the largest. The suites on the firs...

It is hard to expand on the previous reviews, so I will just concur that Summer Creek Inn is simply one of the best B&B here or anywhere. Large, first class bedrooms and public areas, very enjoyable hosts, and wonderful breakfasts. The Inn even seems to attract the nicest guests, all of which we had wonderful breakfast conversations with.

We stayed 4 nights with another couple & could have stayed longer. The hosts really make you feel welcome and encouraged guests to get to know each other. Daniel built custom homes and it shows in the details -- the rooms were huge and well-made and exceptionally clean. Nancy has a real gift for interior design -- luxury touches throughout the building. The Inn hosts numerous weddings and it is easy to see why! We lounged outside on the patio reading, spent every evening in the hot tub looking at the stars, and stuffed ourselves with excellent breakfasts. Nancy was a good guide to restaurants and attractions. A few miles north of Hill City, the Inn could be your base for day trips throughout the entire Black Hills. Saw deer outside at dawn.

Room Tip: No elevator, so you may want to consider a ground floor room if you plan on bringing heavy bags. Th...

If there is a better B&B value in the entire country, I have a hard time fathoming what that would be like. This place was built by the owners as a top flight B&B, and every touch is first class -- including the hosts, Daniel and Nancy, themselves. This is a 5-star plus... even the location is near perfect, close to Mt. Rushmore and the Black Hills, and a short drive to the Badlands. Note that, strictly speaking, this B&B is not in the city per se -- Rapid City is approximately 30 miles away, and the Inn's surroundings are the National Forest. That doesn't mean, however, that excellent dining options are far away. It does mean that you can easily see Mt. Rushmore's lighting at night, and be close to "home". And "home" is well-furnished, homey, full of extra common spaces, and friendly. If you can't be happy here, there is no hope for you.

Room Tip: There are NO bad rooms here. The "pool" is a spa, btw -- TA wouldn't let me "undo...

This Bed and Breakfast is spectacular! The owners are the most friendly, helpful, inviting people. They were great in helping us plan our sightseeing routes each day and planning our course of action. Our suite was beautiful and very clean. The breakfasts were delicious. The property is amazing and the attention to detail very notable. We absolutely loved this place and if we ever get the chance to return to South Dakota, we will definitely not think twice about staying here.

Room Tip: Their website is beautiful and very easy to pick a room decor of your choice.
