“The Tower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2008

Frank and his assistant offer more personal service than offered by the normal B&B. Take them up on the offer for dinner...it is not that much money and as good as or better than most restaurants. Rooms are clean and WHAT a VIEW!!!

My trip was ruined after a park speedbump took out a speed sensor on my car...no i was only going about 5 mph!! and without this sensor my speedometer nor my transmission worked !! Try to find an available, knowledgeable mechanic on the 4th of July in the middle of nowhere !! But Frank took the time to help me out...even though he had climbing expeditions to the top of the tower.... and had me on my way by noon the following day to a mechanic in nearby Sundance Wyoming. As for the accommodations the view is awesome! the lower floor rooms which are connected via a pocket door are very comfortable with a super view of the tower ! Breakfast and other meals were good and visiting with Frank the other guests was great fun. Other interesting things were fossil hunting, watching 4th of July fireworks, watching the almost tame wildlife in the field behind the lodge and of course walking the trail beneath this majestic mountain....while watching Frank climb it . (ha ha.) ...( the view at the base of the tower at sunset is awesome) My only advice is go extremely slow over the park speedbumps and be sure to be ready to take the left hand turn onto gravel as you head toward tower observation loop...the road is not well marked...but it is the only left hand turn. Also Kids are very welcome at Franks place but be advised...his house is full of breakables!!! and i kept my kids on a very short leash ! Great Owner .. Great Company..Great View ..Great location !! I will go back !

  • Liked — The owner and the view
  • Disliked — though Frank welcomes small children, his home is a treasure trove of expensive breakables

With three 15 year olds, I set out to see Devils Tower and the Black Hills. We stayed at Devils Tower Lodge with Frank Sanders, Proprietor, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The setting is incomparable, both in its beauty and proximity to sites I wanted to see, such as Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and lesser-known parts of the Black Hills. The pleasant part of it all was that the Lodge is close enough for convenience and far enough away to truly have a "getting away from it all" feeling. The children enjoyed the horseback riding, swimming and, of course, climbing! Frank is such an awesome human being and relates well to people, of all ages. He took the time and effort to make sure that we were all enjoying ourselves and went out of his way to find activities for everyone, including my nephew, who is legally blind and amazingly enthusiastic!

  • Liked — The location, hospitality and Frank Sanders!

I was in need of some peace (and some climbing) and came to Devils Tower Lodge. This is not your usual Bed and Breakfast. It is quite a unique experience. Filled with all sorts of people - climbers, travelers, honeymooners, families - an extraordinary blend of personalities!

Frank (the owner) is an avid climber who gives back to the climbing community with his hospitality. During the climbing season the place is buzzing with climbers looking to Frank for his years of experience and expertise on the tower. If you get a chance to climb with Frank - well that is just icing on the cake.

You will pass through the "Climbing Gear Room" to enjoy a home cooked meal served in a sun room that is attached to a patio and you'll have a beautiful view of the tower.

There is a piano in the living room. Hopefully you get a chance to hear Frank play.

Frank has very nice hostesses to help him run the house while he is out guiding or climbing - that are usually rock climbers as well.

The rooms are absolutely beautiful. Downstairs is a suite appropriate for families with a patio door that leads directly to a hot tub.

Be prepared for a fun and welcoming environment here. If you are in search of a stuffy and rigid place to be - this isn't the place for you. If you want to meet interesting people, learn new things and have good conversation then this is the place for you.

We travel a great deal in the USA and Europe (married couple with teenage boys) & this place is unique. The location is extraordinary - and that's just the icing! My husband and sons wanted to climb the amazing Devil's Tower (they had more enthusiasm than expertise), I was the slightly uptight, cowardly non-climber. We got a hint that lodge owner Frank was a different sort of b & b landlord from the tone of his helpful booking e-mails but didn't really expect the level of welcome, gorgeous hospitality, superb food, outstanding comfort and general merriment we found here. Frank is a top class climber, a musician, and a raconteur of immense local knowledge who seems to thrive on making guests happy - without being the slightest bit pushy. This has the effect of lifting the spirits of all the guests - we were a pretty mixed bunch - to a magical degree.

I got up earlier (brilliant wildlife-at-dawn views), stayed up later (chatting to other guests on the starlit porch) and laughed more (watching my husband & sons try the climbers' balance rope in the garden, for example!) than I've ever done elsewhere. My husband and sons managed the demanding Devil's Tower ascent (with a fantastic guide arranged by Frank - he was already booked) but many guests don't climb - they take advantage of the amazing flat walks to roam around the tower & chill out blissfully at the pretty, cosy lodge reading, taking umpteen photos, sitting in the hot tub, helping themselves to between-meals coffee and tea and chatting.
The only note of caution: when we stayed, the assistant helping Frank in the kitchen - Brad - had several years of experience with a top French chef. So the food was specially excellent. But even if Brad has moved on, this is probably the only b & b I'd advise adjusting your Wyoming vacation dates around if it's already booked up exactly when you want it. It really is that good.

We got to Devil's Tower Lodge just at dinnertime, we were welcomed like old friends and invited to sit down with all the other guests and staff in the sunroom at the back of the house. Now as homey as this sounds, and actually is, dinner or lunch or any other meal besides breakfast is $10 a person so be prepared for it to show up on your bill. I say this not to deter you, for the dinner you will enjoy is better than any restaurant and surely worth it, but just to make you aware. After a wonderful dinner and a peach cobbler and friendly conversation, we returned to our room, the very beautiful Burning Daylight room, which is sort of billed as a honeymoon suite. It has a private entrance and gorgeous views of the Tower for you to wake up to. The only downside to this room is the ultra firm bed...ok it's hard as a rock, but other than that it's wonderful. The adjoining private bath does not have a tub, just a standup shower stall (I wonder can it be a honeymoon suite without a tub??, but I digress)
One of the things about the Devil's Tower Lodge that we enjoyed the most was being in the company of the fantastic people who own and run it. Frank, the owner and your host, is an avid climber, he once climbed the tower 17 times in one day! Whew! They are very enthusiastic about climbing and will take you up to the top happily.

Beautiful accomodations, a stunning view of Devils Tower (DT), and a unique friendly staff. If you are "just" looking to get away for a bit, this is definitely a secluded escape. If you go to climb and Mother Nature cooperates, you're in for an awesome time. In addition to being a gracious host, this B&B Proprietor has a phenomenal knowledge of DT climbs that he willfully shares. Listen to what he has to say, because his wisdom of the rock is also a means of safeguarding your wellbeing. When you walk thru the front door, you become "instant family" --- his house is now your home too (even if only for a one-day stay). Prepare yourself for a truly emotional release, whether or not that is why you think you are visitng here. The power of the Tower, and the magic at the Lodge will have you looking within and reflecting in no time. You will leave a different person than when you came!
