It’s almost impossible to explain just how great a place the Flying B is to stay. It’s close to some of the most beautiful scenery in God’s creation, the hosts are tremendous, the food is great, and the accommodations are spectacular.
We chose the Flying B as the place to stay for our 30th anniversary because it was so close to the Black Hills and we always wanted to ride a motorcycle through that area. The fact that it was on a 3,500 acre ranch helped in our decision because we love the country life. Little did we know that we were in for the treat of our lives. Bonnie and Larry have put together a mixture of comfort, interest, and history that has no equal, and they are perfect hosts.
Bonnie makes an incredible feast for breakfast. Some of the best times of our stay were when we were sitting in the kitchen, while she made the meal, talking with the hosts and other guests. Larry helps with the preparation, but it doesn’t take long to notice that Bonnie needs to redirect him to task quite often. Once you have had enough to eat and the table is cleared, Bonnie will be glad to sit down with you and help you plan your day. Her knowledge of the area’s scenic roads, attractions, and places to eat were a vital component in what may have been the best vacation of our lives.
Larry by himself would be worth the trip. He has a rare combination of charisma and ADHD that makes him a whole lot of fun. He has a story at hand that explains anything you might ask him, and some of those explanations are actually true. If you’re not in a hurry to get somewhere else, he’ll take you for a tour around the ranch and even let you help with the chores. That may not sound like a lot of fun but ask the kids who get to bottle-feed the calves or the guys that get to drive the real ranch equipment and you’ll find it can be a great time.
I don’t want to repeat what has been said in other reviews about the rooms, spas, pool, game room, and kitchenette. I just want to say that everything reviewers are telling you about the Flying B is true. Maybe you shouldn’t take our word for it though; maybe you should try it out yourself!
