We can only echo what everyone else has written. The lodge is historic, friendly, welcoming, and charming. It is rustic. The rooms and bathrooms can be small, but the bedding is superb, and the FOOD. Oh, my, the owner, Carol, is not only a gifted cook, she is an artist in presentation. We did not want to go out one evening, so she prepared a delectable three course meal for us, served on a private table in the sitting room--gourmet quality with fresh, local ingredients. The meal was delicious and one of the best we had on our two week trip to the Black Hills, mountains, and Banff, Canada. Carol and her husband are so gracious and calm, carrying bags, recommending sightseeing. The lodge has a calming, Zen quality for harried travelers who've been driving too far in one day. This is not some cookie-cutter Ritz hotel, but it is a great place for authenticity and friendship.
