We had an absolute wonderful time at the ranch. The setting is beautiful. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. My 8 year old daughter played Uno with a boy from Germany - he spoke very little english, but they got through the game with some giggles. It was one of the highlights of her trip. Some of our party stayed in the "Homesteader's Cabin" and loved it. Not for everyone - no electricity or indoor plumbing, but they enjoyed it.
We drove into Scenic, got a pizza at the Wagon Wheel Bar, not expecting much. It just might have been the best pizza in South Dakota! (I have eaten my share - my parents live there.) We brought our pizza back to the ranch, opened a bottle of wine and ate at the picnic table outside. As soon as we sat down, the burros walked over and watched us eat. The table is sitting on an aluminum platform, the burros won't walk on it. Very cool.
The only complaint I had was the lack of shampoo or soap in the room, and we really weren't shown around much - just kind of left on our own - which isn't all that bad....We will stay again.
