Stayed at this lovely B&B a year ago when it was known as Smiling Bear. They have since added a room adjacent to the main house.
My wife and I were traveling with our then 12 y/o son and, having stayed in many B&Bs without our son, wanted to find a B&B in Hill City that could accommodate our son who wanted some semblance of privacy. Their website mentioned a loft for children and when I called to inquire about the loft's suitability for our son, Sam assured me he would love it. He was absolutely right.
The house is very homey. Sam and Linda made us feel welcome immediately upon our arrival and maintained a high level of hospitality during our 3 night stay. My wife and I were very comfortable in our room and, as mentioned, our son, loved his loft.
The breakfasts were superb. Linda makes her own preserves and baked goods. For you coffee lovers, they feature some outstanding brews.
We really enjoyed their spacious front porch, complete with rocking chairs and homemade beverages. It was a wonderful spot to relax and watch the world go by.
Can't say enough about Linda and Sam. They embody the spirit of B&B proprietors. They could not have been more hospitable.
