Took my parents to see Mt Rushmore and the surrounding area...found this place on VRBO and so glad we did! We enjoyed peaceful evenings sitting by a fire and watching wildlife! The cabin was clean and perfect! Great hidden gem here!

We had an amazing vacation at Yak Ridge Cabins. We took advantage of the farm tour offered by owners Julie & Jim. Our cabin was very comfortable, cozy and off the beaten path on a dirt road. We got to visit all the local sights and had peace and quiet in the evening. Fortunately, we were here during meteor showers and had some amazing star gazing at night. They take exceptional care of this little farmstead. Our cabin was stacked with board games, reading materials and a darling basket of goodies. We can hardly wait to come back! It’s charming!

We had a lovely time at Yak Ridge! It is secluded but just minutes away from Mt Rushmore. It is stocked with everything you need and the little extras you’ll appreciate. Everything was very clean, a generous gift bag awaits you, and the setting is beautiful. A doe and fawn wandered nearby as we ate dinner outside one night. I highly recommend Yak Ridge!

The location is convenient to area attractions, only one-half of a mile from the highway, providing both privacy and easy access. The cabin was clean, and had all expected amenities and then some. Julie was responsive to our requests regarding information and provided helpful insight. We were 100% satisfied with our four nights there but, disappointed that we did not have a few more.

Our first family vacation to the Black Hills was made perfect with finding a cabin at Yak Ridge. So clean and comfortable. Our family enjoyed cooking s’mores at the fire pit and eating a dinner on the porch. The cabin has everything we needed to get away and enjoy our stay. Julie was an amazing host and we highly recommend Yak Ridge!
