“Beautiful cabins!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2010

We were very impressed with our stay at the Rustic Ridge cabins. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The cabins are clean and well-equipped. The cabins are just beautiful! We had a great holiday.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2009

Stayed in one of the cabins at the top of the hill, away from the highway, and would recommend that, as those lower down may be noisier. As it was, ours was quiet, clean, well furnished (if basic and spare), overall a great place for the price paid.
It rained most of the time we were there, but still easy to get around the grounds and to the car which was parked approx 40' away.
Only issue was that that the hot water was gone pretty quickly before two showers were over....small hot water receptacle. With room for 4 people in the cabin, you'd have to meter out the time in the shower.
Also make sure you understand how to work the TV and dish network installation.....no instructions.
Otherwise great place, centrally located, nic facility, pretty setting. Would certainly recommend.

Our family of five (kids ages 10, 9, 6) stayed three nights at the cabins. There are many things we liked about the place, and a couple we didn't like. These are new, cute, and contain all the basics for a good stay--kitchenette with sink, mini-fridge with freezer, microwave, electric skillet plus outdoor grill; amenities like dish soap, matches, salt & pepper, coffee, lighter fluid, and dishes/flatware/cooking utensils; and plenty of room for sleep. The owners are very nice. The cabins are close to many sights/
attractions like Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Black HIlls, Reptile Gardens, Bear Country, alpine slides, helicopter rides... so location is great. The first drawback is that there isn't any space for a family to "hang out"--the living area is tiny (futon and t.v.) , which would have been o.k. except we had a couple nights of cold and rain and stayed in. The biggest drawback for us was the road noise, since the driveway is right off a busy two-lane highway. Others may not find this a problem (and much of the lodging in the area is right off the road as well), but it is not a quiet setting in the woods. Given the above positive attributes, though, we would still recommend Rustic Ridge Guest Cabins.

What a great place. The cabins are brand new and all the pans, dishes, silverware, coffeemaker, toaster, electric skillet, microwave, grilling utensils, bedding, towels and linens are supplied. It is operated by a nice young family (Jim and Crystal Wiese) who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Just minutes from Keystone and Hill City, it is the perfect location to make your base for exploration.
