We stayed here in July 2016. My husband is on a wheelchair and we stayed in the Aspen cabin. It worked out great for us. The cottages are well furnished and the owners are on-site and attentive. The location is wonderful. Close to everything and still quiet.

They have both camper spots and cabins to rent. The campers have full hookups. The cabins are all different sizes, on the small side but nice overall. They have a nice bathroom facility (one men and one women) with a shower. They have a laundry room with one washer and one dryer, but the prices are too expensive for a... More

Family of 5 (kids ages 13, 12, 11) enjoyed the clean, spacious new Family Cabin at the Whispering Winds Cottages. Easy location that was central to Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park and Hill City. Gorgeous community area that included plenty of seating, grills and a fire pit. We really enjoyed the laid-back vibe that included a nightly fire-pit - bring... More

We didn't take advantage of the cottage/resort amenities since it was a quick trip. Just a couple things to improve on was the pull out didn't have sheets and they were no... More

We stayed at this property in one of their cabins. The cabin was clean, had comfortable beds, fridge, microwave, TV and so-so Wi-Fi. Very good location as your base to explore the Black Hills area. The owners were a friendly and nice young couple. Very good place if you have kids as there is a playground and plenty of room... More

We stayed in the Aspen cabin while my sister stayed in her motor home. We had the ADA cabin and it worked great with my husband's wheelchair. He could get around great. We loved the central meeting area in the center of the property. There were picnic tables, gas grills and a campfire every night for s'mores. Everyone at the... More

Family of 4 stayed 2 nights in southwestern cabin. Just enough room for us. There is so much to see and do in the area we felt like we were barely there! Really clean room! The gathering area in middle of camp looked awesome - tables, grill, fire ring, flowers hanging - just beautiful! Nice to have fridge and microwave... More

We stayed in one of the cabins. It was great for our family of 4. Very clean, loved the swing set right out of our back door, and the nightly camp fire. Very well kept up place and great location/views! Will return again!

We stayed here 3 nights (June 17th-20th) and wish we could've stayed longer! We were traveling with friends who stayed in an RV and we flew to Rapid City to meet up with them, so we were looking for a place that would work for them in the RV and a cabin for us. This place worked perfectly! The RV... More
