“Great Value...but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Our room was nicely furnished, quaint, clean & comfortable. However, we were in one of the very front cabins. The highway was very noisy, we used earplugs to drown out the noise. The pool was great. Ambience is wonderful. The restaurant was a little spendy $$$. The food was good, so the value was there. Close proximity to Keystone by car. We would stay again in a cabin farther back.

Room Tip: Choose a cabin away from highway road noise.

This is a great little place, Nice restaurant on site. Nice little cabins to stay in. Nice room. Loved it. 4 pillows and soft. Nice rocker chair. Room is more than clean and nicely done. quiet even though it is off the main road. Near downtown Keystone for shopping and night life. And a good price.

Room Tip: Stayed in 1 of the end cabins of 4 units to have less neighbors.

I have visited the Black Hills lots of times since I was very young. I have stayed in everything from chain motes, historic hotels, rustic cabins, lodges, etc. As I've gotten older and have come to appreciate the little touches and qualities of the places we stay I was thrilled to have found Powder House Lodge. My husband and I spent a beautiful night in a cabin and what we appreciated the most incuded the super comfy matress, LOTS of yummy pillows, heat lamp in the bathroom, coffee maker, high quality toilitries, our swing on the front porch, the quietness of the property, high quality dining on site, satellite flat screen television and the super cleanliness of the cabin and property. Therer is nothing chintzy about this place!

Room Tip: After staying there for the first time I discovered there really isn't a bad location on the pro...

My bf and I stayed in the smaller 1 bed cabin near the restaurant. The price was reasonable.
The room had a small fridge and a microwave. The only time we would be in the room would
be too sleep. The room was just right and clean. There was a couple of chairs in front of
our room to sit outside in the evening. Being close to the restaurant was nice and convenient
to get a cup of coffee eventhough there is a small coffee maker in the room. Overall.. very happy with the place. The staff was real nice and would definitely stay here again.

I had cabin #56 up on top of the hill. Very nice, clean room and lots of space. The beds are great.Staff was very friendly and helpful. The Powder House Lodge is about 2 miles away from Keystone which was great. Had prime rib at the restaurant. The food there is really good. It was nice after sightseeing you could have a great meal and go right to you cabin!!!! Yes I have stayed here many times and this is the only place I will stay at when I'm in Keystone!!!!!

We stayed here for 2 nights in a duplex cabin near the front of the property. You could hear a bit of the traffic from the road but not enough to bother us. The cabin was very large with a full size bath (something that we came to appreciate after so many cabins with little tiny showers) There was a hair dryer already in the bathroom, WiFi access was good, the porch on the front of the cabin was shared with the other side of the duplex but it had a small table and 2 chairs and was nice for relaxing and watching the stars. I saw a flock of turkeys in the morning make their was from the road through the property. We met a couple earlier in the trip that had stayed in the motel portion of the property and had wonderful things to say about those rooms. They gave us a bag of ice each morning to start out for a day trips. They also brought in fresh towels even though we were only staying 2 nights. There was a window unit AC/Heater that warmed the room nicely in the cool evenings.

We had a wonderful time at Powder House. We ate 3 meals in the restaurant. Each was delicious and the service was great. Every time we went into the office/restaurant, the staff offered to help us plan our days of sightseeing and gave us tips on how to get the most done during the day.

The cabin was perfect for us as we were traveling with our 90 lb dog and we had plenty of room for her kennel. The setting of the cabins was so beautiful and romantic. This is where my boyfriend became my fiancé in such a perfect setting.

The only hiccup was the first night when we went to get into the hot tub and there was a rattlesnake sitting by the hot tub. However, when I told your staff the following day, they said they would try and catch it. Obviously itbis not powder house's fault, but they did what they could to get rid of it and we didnt have any more rattlesnake sightings. actually, it gives us a fun story to tell our friends and relatives. Thanks for everything. We will be back!

Room Tip: Loved the private hot tub in the honeymoon suite.
