We arrived late and had gotten a phone call from the front desk saying that we had to be there by 9pm or the office would be closed. We arrived before they closed and had gotten our keys. We walked in and boy did the room STINK! I figured that we would make the best of it and started to... More

The location was great we took day trips to all the great sights and it was just a short drive from the resort. We rented one of the single cabins it had a small refrigerator, stove, microwave and a little table. The bed was comfortable and the cabin was cleaned daily., We really enjoyed the privacy and how quiet it... More

This resort is like going to your Grandparents cottage. Accommodations are clean, convenient and very quiet. The staff is extremely pleasant and work to provide what you need to be comfortable. If you're looking for a spa atmosphere, this isn't the place for you. The resort is located off hwy 44 which is super convenient whether you want to do... More

Perfect venue for our family reunion. Staff excellent & very accommodating . Lots to do in the area. I had hoped the lake would be a bit nicer for young children to play in. Paddle boats were nice option. Few too many geese on the property inhibiting lawn games we had wanted to do. Would definitely stay again.

small resort more like a motel but the manager very friendly and helpful with choices for restaurants. We liked the quietness of the rooms ,came with small stove and refrigerator. a little pricey because they call it a resort I guess but would probably stay there again.

My family met from Memphis, Atlanta, Tampa and Orlando for a week of vacay and sightseeing. We've never been to this area if the country. Cabins clean, comfy and roomy. Nice to have the camp fire available in the evening and enjoy the picnic tables as well as gorgeous sunsets over the lake. Perfect location. 30 minutes from airport, less... More

Although the lake views and grounds were good and the staff was polite, the cabins were EXTREMELY dated....from the kitchen appliances to the livingroom furniture and walls to the bedroom furniture to the carpets! It didn't seem as though anything was < 20+ years old (stains included). When the 4 of us walked into the room I decided not to... More

Clean enough for us, but sheets uncomfortable, one of 2 beds uncomfortable, and our motel room a bit dated. but given that the season was in full swing in Rapid City the $100 + per night was about the most reasonable in the area. Staff polite and responsive. The "resort" (it once was a resort) is situated on a nice... More
