My husband and I spent 3 nights over Labor Day weekend at this wonderful b&b. After a long drive from Chicago, we needed a place where we could relax and that would be a jumping off point for our visits to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer National Park and Devil's Tower. Sweetgrass' location on the south side of Rapid City was perfect; and it was still a 5 minute drive to downtown restaurants and shops. At first I was a little concerned that the b&b was too close to a busy street and the noise would be a problem, but it was wonderfully quiet especially in the morning. Shari was a lovely host, gave us great tips, and prepared a wonderful, hearty breakfast every morning in company with Lee and Benny, the dog and Shadow, the cat. We where in the Meadowsage Room which had a roomy bathroom including a jacuzzi tub which we sadly did not use. There is no cable but you can rent movies at the nearby Walgreens or bring your own DVD. Be aware that cell phone access can be iffy in the Black Hills. Overall, it was a lovely experience for a reasonable price.
