“We were so sad to leave!!!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Is it karma, coincidence, or just plain luck to find such an amazing B&B where the innkeepers are even more amazing?
Who really knows, but we thank our lucky stars that we chose White Tail Ridge for a four-night stay during a trip to SD in September.
Coming from NYC we really weren’t sure what to expect but we were totally blown away by the beauty and the peacefulness. John and Darcy are just awesome.
They welcomed us into their home and just made us feel like we had been friends forever…we so loved that and we hope we will see them again soon!

The location of the inn couldn’t be better. Centrally located to all the major sites, and some pretty good options for dining as well. There is even a 24-hr mart about a mile up the road where it’s quite easy to grab some drinks or snacks if needed.
Darcy is a gifted cook…and John too (dude those cowboy cookies rocked)!
I mean every breakfast, every afternoon snack, was just delicious! They even packed us a sweet picnic basket for lunch when we did our Harney Peak hike.

We stayed in Will’s Bunk which we just loved. It’s décor is totally influenced by the old west (thanks to John’s love of John Wayne : ).
It was spacious, the bed was super comfortable, and we thought the room like the entire house was awesome.

Highlights for us were sitting down at breakfast (not just because it was so delicious : ) but just meeting such great people from all over and getting to know them. We connected with lovely couples from Alabama and Iowa and the chatter that took place at the table felt like an old family get together.
In the evenings after a day of hiking and site seeing we would sit in rocking chairs on the front porch and just talk with John and Darcy. Who knew folks from SD, Iowa Staten Island, and the Bronx had so much in common! LOL.

If your looking for a B&B that feels like home then this place is for you.
It definitely was for us and we hope to be back!

Darcy/John- we are waiting for you guys in NYC…Cheers from SI and the Bronx!

... and we were just as sad to see you go! We SO enjoyed your company. Like you said, who knew city folk and country folk could have so much in common? Honestly, I don't believe in coincidence; our paths were destined to cross. I'm so glad they did, and I'm certain they will again... Thank-you, thank-you, for sharing your experience!

p.s. It's not the intent, it's the impact, right? ;-)

We had a 2-night stay on a quick trip from San Diego to the Black Hills. John and Darcy made us feel very comfortable and welcome. We stayed in the Madam Dora Room which was more than large enough for the two of us and our adult daughter. Darcy's healthy breakfasts got our days off to a great start. We would certainly stay there again, the location is easy to find and convenient to area attractions.

White Tail Ridge is so very beautiful & close to all Black Hills attractions. The Madam Dora Room is very spacious, great bed, jetted tub & more. John & Darcy are very well informed on the area & gave great tips with roads, restaurants, attractions. Close enough to get to Rapid City, Rushmore, Crazy Horse & more. Chef Darcy makes THE MOST AMAZING breakfasts anywhere!!! A pleasure to stay here--cozy & beautiful. Highly recommend White Tail Ridge--you won't be disappointed!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to White Tail Ridge Bed & Breakfast. John and Darcy were gracious hosts who provided a warm welcome and encouraged us to make ourselves at home. Our room was nicely decorated in a western theme and was very comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious - especially enjoyed the orange french toast. In addition to helping us with our itinerary, John and Darcy prepared a wonderful lunch which we enjoyed later in the day. Would highly recommend this B & B when traveling in the Black Hills area.

What a delightful place to stay in the Black Hills area. Off the main road just enough but very easy to find with easy access to Keystone. The room was spacious and comfortable and the western theme was perfect. The breakfast was substantial, unique and tasty and the conversation was stimulating. We would go back in a heartbeat! We even got to feed the horse a treat!

Darcy and John were gracious, fun and helpful hosts. The food was excellent. Darcy was attentive to our families special needs. John gave good suggestions and directions for making our day in the area very fun. The bed and room were clean and comfortable. A fantastic place to stay when visiting the Mt. Rushmore area. A great set up for a family that needs a couple of rooms & a bathroom.

Room Tip: The Hermosa suite included two bedrooms and a bathroom in between. There is a curtain in the hallway...
