This is a lovely piece of property just 4 miles off the main drag in Hill City (with its sizeable grocery store and a few restaurants and shops) yet very pretty and quiet. We stayed 3 nights in one of the log homes (McDonald) along a rushing slate-bottom creek in a lush pasture surrounded by hills. The horses come down every evening and graze right in your back yard. Go to sleep to the creek, wake to the birds singing. The kids spent hours splashing around the creek (one of their favorite parts of the whole trip) and we had marshmallows in our creekside fire pit every night with a million stars. The 4 bedroom house was very comfortable for our family of 7 with a good sized yard and privacy. The ranch offers a 99 cent pancake breakfast which was convenient (it's about a buck extra for drinks or sausage, still a good deal). Breakfast is limited to 8 to 9 am though so you will have to get up to take advantage of that. It was cold so we didn't use the outdoor pool but it looked nice and they have horseback riding also. Buy wood and matches at the grocery store in town. Be prepared to unplug a little, we only got one TV station (they do have free tapes and DVDs) and couldn't get cell coverage or 3G at the ranch though we could down in town. They have wireless in the main building but we did not go use it. Hill City is very convenient and central for the sights in the Black Hills and this is a really lovely property. We would definitely stay at the Ranch again!
