This was such a great adventure and so much better than staying in another hotel/motel which all start to look alike after a while. The owners were friendly, helpful and courteous. Family cabin #9 seems to be the lesser requested of the two family cabins, so we were fortunate to have it available at fairly late notice. The cabin was... More

We stayed there in June 2016. It was one of the cabins off by itself. The cabin was nice and clean. There was plenty of room for my wife and I, it was like a small house. The bed was comfortable, but it seemed like the head of the bed slopped down hill. We really enjoyed the quiet and the... More

We stayed at the Roost Resort for three nights, in Cabin #5. The owners Frank and Susan are super nice people, very helpful and informative. The cabin was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and the kitchen adequately supplied with pots, pans, dishes, etc. for two people. The fridge isn't very large, but does have a separate freezer. The two... More

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Roost Resort. The cabins were super clean and cozy, the property is beautiful and tranquil and the town of Custer is adorable and close to everything we wanted to see in the Black Hills. Frank and Susan are warm and wonderful hosts, sweet and patient with our very curious and chatty... More

A neighbor recommended The Roost Resort for my stay in Custer, S Dakota. I found they had a 'camping cabin' available. Originally I was going to tent camp, but when I saw that rain was in the forecast - this seemed like a great alternative. The cabin was clean, comfortable and had great views. The hosts were friendly and helpful.... More

Stayed here for three days. Host were great. Clean family owned. Deer came up every morning and even. Rabbits playing out front. So amazing. Great view out back mountains and prairie. Close to State Park. A different view everyday riding on motorcycle. Will return every time I'm out this way.

We loved our stay at The Roost Resort. Frank, the owner, was friendly and helpful. Everything was so clean and the a-frame was equipped with everything we needed. It was quiet even though there were lots of bikers due to the Sturgis Rally. The thing I loved the most is that the room smelled fresh, no scent of cleaners or... More

I spent 3 days in June in a cabin at the Roost Resort. My wife and I try to vacation there for a couple of weeks every summer. The cabins are immaculate and the maintenance and customer service is amazing. Frank is detail oriented and has always taken care of any issues (ants), that have been a problem. We have... More

Over the years, I have stayed in The Roost Resort cabins, camping cabin, and camp ground. I can say that over a 12 year period, sometimes staying multiple times each season, that I have never been disappointed. Each year I notice new improvements in the property, such as the bath house being remodeled, or new siding on the cabins, etc.... More
