We were there for our 25th wedding anniversary and stayed in the Hugo was so quiet, very clean and very comfortable!! It was close to everything we wanted to see. We loved it & will definitely go back again!

The 3 of us stayed 2 nights in the Dan Patch cabin during our visit to the Black Hills this past August. The cabin was modern with all the amenities you would want. Tastefully decorated with local goods- comfortable beds- great view of the hills where you are nestled in. This is a small property which was just what we... More

We were looking to try something different as compared to a usual hotel (bleh, same always). My wife found the BackRoads and booked us in the "Miners Cabin". Upon arrival to it; I couldn't believe it! How awesome! Everything we would need for cooking was in there (Silverware, cooking pans/utensils, plates, cups, wine glasses) which was huge for us not...

My extended family stumbled across this gem when looking for a place to stay during a family trip to the Black Hills. We couldn't have been more pleased with what we found: restful cabins, nestled into the hills, just a short drive from Keystone and Mt. Rushmore; tastefully decorated rooms; clean and well-kept accomodations; fire pits for chatting after dark,... More

This was an excellent place especially for our family with two young children. We were close to all the Black Hills activities but in a location that was free of the usual trappings of tourist spots. The cabins were well appointed, clean and cute in a "backroads country" way - nothing fancy but definitely adequate to nice for a trip... More

My family and I had the pleasure of spending 5 days at the BackRoads Inn and Cabins. It was marvelous. Location was great - only 2 miles from Keystone. My grandkids ran around playing and having a ball with the horse swing and playing I the pool. One of the daily hi-lights was watching the 1880 train go by and... More

We enjoyed 3 peaceful days/nights at "The Barn" cabin. No complaints! The cabins are clean, well kept, and beautiful! Great place to relax and enjoy your family. This was our second time here and we are already planning another trip in the future. Thank you!

We rented the Miner's Cabin July 17-20. It was perfect for me, my husband and two kids. We also brought our small dog. The cabins are stocked with anything you could possibly need. The grounds are beautiful & the pool is a nice activity to come back to. The property is tucked away but so close to all the attractions.... More

What a stroke of luck that we found this place! We so enjoyed our whole stay, which was 3 nights in the Miner's cabin. Love the fact that they had a fire pit and a pool that wasn't too busy due to there not being a lot of cabins. Cabins very updated and super clean! The s'more supplies was a... More

We rented The Gold Nugget June 5-11, 2016. It was a beautiful place & perfect for the two of us. We researched for a place to stay online. I LOVE their website and everything was as it was shown on their website. There was plenty of room for two and the cabin was clean and everything was stocked and ready.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our goal is simple: create a space and atmosphere that allows peace, rejuvenation and quality time with others. In order for this to be made tangible, our cabins are filled with the modern comforts of plush furniture and full kitchens amidst the rustic character of knotty pine walls and custom-made log headboards. Our grounds reflect the natural setting of the Black Hills, replete with tree-covered hills, beautiful rocks, stillness and an array of wildlife: birds, squirrels, bunnies and the occasional flock of turkeys and herd of deer. While at our property, you are our guests and will be treated as friends. We will do whatever we can to make your time one of enjoyment and relaxation. Make time to get away; it'll be worth it. ... more   less
