With work maintaining its rigorous pace the need to get away for an extended weekend became apparent. I searched through dozens of motels, cabins, and bed & breakfasts around the Hill City, Custer, and Keystone areas. While several locations looked beautiful few offered the privacy and intimacy of the Emerald Pines Bed and Breakfast. The home of Marilyn and Al... More

If you're a couple traveling without children or pets look no further then the Emerald Pines Refuge B & B in Hill City. Located a half mile from the main road at the end of a gravel road, you'll have all the solitude you desire plus easy access to all the attractions the Black Hills have to offer. We chose... More

A very central location for the Black Hills, yet nestled back far enough from the highway to provide a quiet nature experience. Very nice home with very friendly owners. The breakfasts were excellent.

Our hosts Marilyn and Al spoiled us with delicious home-baked treats in our beautiful and superbly clean hewn-log suite. We appreciate a healthful menu, and each morning Marilyn presented a different delicious, colorful and nutritious gourmet breakfast using her home-ground grains and fresh ingredients. How fun it was to eat and watch friendly squirrels and chipmunks daily on their downstairs... More

Our trip's purpose was to ride most of the Mickelson Trail, which is a 100+ mile off-road route through the heart of the Black Hills. The logistics were going to be complicated, but hosts Marilyn and Al really helped us out. The B&B itself is very very nice. Breakfasts were big enough to fuel many hours of riding, and the... More

We've been to a few B&B's before so our expectations were somewhat low. This one however was very special. The owners really take the extra steps to make you feel comfortable and welcomed while respecting your privacy. The breakfast was abundant, delicious and made with extra care. If you aren't sure what to do in the BlackHills or need more... More
