We have just returned from a week in the Black Hills and Badlands of South Dakota. While in the Black Hills area, we stayed at the Pine Rest Cabins on Rt. 16 in Hill City, SD. There are 8 cabins I believe. Our cabin (#8) was perfect. It is one of the few remaining original travelers cabins in that area. I believe 1906 was the date we were told. It was wonderful and quaint with just enough "modern amenities" to keep anyone happy (free wi-fi, DVD, etc.) Though compact - it was more than adequate for 4 people. The beds and pillows were comfortable and the linens were great. The kitchen had everything you need if you decide to "eat-in". We didn't but we did utilize the coffee maker every morning. The hot water was plentiful and there were more than enough towels. Plus if you needed more - all you had to do was go to the "towel window" and get more. Parking is conveniently located right outside the front door. There is a great porch w/ two "adirondacks" and a picnic table. It was a bit chilly for us to sit out plus we weren't there too much during the day.
The cabins are centrally located to everything you could possibly want to do in the Black Hills area and are very easily accessible from all directions. Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Rapid City, Spearfish Canyon, Leeds, Deadwood - all within a comfy driving distance of the cabins.
The cost was very acceptable for the area and the cabin offered enough that we felt we got a "terrific deal". The owners, Jan and Steve were very acommodating to our late arrival by having everything ready for us.
Bottom line - I would recommend anyone going to that area to look them up. Whether you are a family on a vacation or sharing it with that someone special - you won't be sorry!!
