We had a flight canceled which pushed back our road trip by two days. Our travel agent found Tammy very helpful in changing our reservation on short notice. We did have to pay a higher price but this was more than fair as it included the first day of Sturgis. Tammy was very helpful in suggesting local things to see... More

The rooms are very very comfortable, clean and well kept. The breakfast is excellent and lots of it. We are already booked for next year. The... More

I highly recommended this property. I looked at others in Keystone and the surrounding area however it was my conversation with Tami, one of the women that runs the property, that confirmed my decision to stay. She was very helpful in giving advice on the area, different attractions, and even other properties both on the phone and in person after... More

We are not used to roadside lodges, therefore we didn't like this place. We had booked for a king size room, but it was very small, on the ground floor, formerly a room for employees, turned into a guest room. It was claustrophobic, dark, with a very low ceiling, and a strong smell. So then we were moved to a... More

Hi Brenda, We regret that you were unable to make the trip. We understand it was a costly mistake -- but you aren't telling the FULL STORY. That being that you booked during the Sturgis Bike Rally week - which is our busiest week of the year. If you read our web-site, you will see we actually have a NO... More

Arrived close to 10pm and the owners called to let me know the details of how I would be checking in. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were so good I asked the owners where I could purchase them. Not a flashy or trendy place by ANY means but overall it was a great stay with a very...

We had a reservation for a 4-night stay and had to cancel when we added to our party and needed more beds.

A unique small inn with clean, comfortable rooms. Each room has an outside sitting area to relax, and enjoy the world going by. Close enough to walk to restaurants or shops. Very comfortable beds, and quiet despite being close to Highway. The morning breakfast room/lobby is delightfully decorated and the breakfast offering was delicious. The hosts were exceptional. Highly recommend.
