“A Highlight of our Trip to the West!”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

I found the Triangle Ranch on Trip Advisor and it was a total hit with my husband and the friends with whom we were traveling. I won't repeat what others have accurately stated, except to emphasize that Lyndy's dinner and breakfast were delicious and we all enjoyed our chats with her and her husband, Kenny, from whom we got a real sense of the challenges of ranching, life in the west,etc. They are great people and stewards of a classic Sears kit house. We really felt we were staying in their home as guests. Lyndy has renovated with a light, just-right touch, not with over-the-top decorating. Perfect! A bit out f the way, but well worth it, in an idyllic setting in rolling ranchland. Don't miss the Minuteman Missile Site on the way out of the area...

Just home from our third stay at Triangle Ranch and I already want to go back!
Our first stay was just me and the kids. If you want a vacation where all your kids can do is roam through beautiful prairies, look for rocks in the river bed, pet the horses and just do "nothing" with you then this ranch is a must! We came home with so many stories, my husband said he needed to go too. A year later we went back and received a big hug from Lyndy. Several hours later my husband was napping on a blanket in the grass and my kids were happy on the old swings and teeter-totter!
Kenny and Lyndy make their guests feel like family better than any place we've stayed. Lyndy's large breakfasts and home-cooked meals are always wonderful. But beware, you'll be tempted to sit at the dining room table for hours visiting and listening to Kenny's many ranching stories! We've stayed in the home and in the Carriage House and both are very comfortable, well-appointed and clean!
Because they are miles down a gravel road (sometimes you have to get the cows off the road) there are no other homes to be seen or noises to be heard except for peace and quiet! Needless to say we highly recommend this place - our last visit was just to take friends to meet Kenny and Lyndy and experience their place; after all, we couldn't let our friends go by themselves because we'd be jealous!

We stayed for 2 nights in August. It is fairly far out on a gravel road, but it was definitely worth it. The house is lovely, the hosts are welcoming, the rooms, although small, are charmingly decorated, and the beds (we stayed in Mathilda's room) were very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and the table was set beautifully with china. Consider making arrangements for dinner, especially if you are staying there on a Sunday, as there is really nowhere to eat nearby that is open on Sunday. We didn't realize that we could make arrangements to have dinner at the ranch (our fault) and had to make do with bologna sandwiches that we picked up at a gas station. The other night we ate prime rib at a steakhouse in Kadoka which was excellent, however I would suggest you make arrangements for dinner at the ranch. Lyndy is an excellent cook. At breakfast we had delicious muffins and a wonderful omelet. My husband picked that breakfast as his "best breakfast" of our week vacation (we stayed at three bed and breakfasts).

The home is spotlessly clean, steeped in history, and Lyndy and Kenny are happy to tell you all about it. One evening we sat and chatted with them and enjoyed Lyndy's wonderful chocolate cake and ice cream. They are most welcoming and friendly people.

I would highly recommend this b&b and would definitely return if I was in the area.

The story about the house was so interesting. We were glad to have had dinner with them so that we could enjoy Kenny's humor while partaking of Lyndy's wonderful home cooking. Being raised on a farm myself, it was like going home. A small nightstand or small table in Esther's room would have been nice. Otherwise, it was fantastic. You can't top Kenny & Lyndy as B&B hosts.

After following Ken's excellent directions down a service road and across several miles of gravel road, we could not have been more pleased to find this beautiful, welcoming b & b with its friendly hosts at the end of the drive.

When we arrived we were a little concerned about dinner arrangements since we had been travelling all day and this place is a little off the beaten path. No problem, said Lyndy, and in no time she had whipped up a dinner of home-bred steaks, salad, potatoes, and delicious chocolate cake which we shared at their dining room table as though we had known each other for years.

During dinner we were entertained by Ken's ranching and rodeo stories. The bedrooms were immaculate, furnished with family photos and heirlooms. Breakfast was delicious, and we were sorry to leave after only one night.

Triangle Ranch was one of the very best overnight stays we experienced during our recent five-week cross-country trip, and although it's a little hard to find, it's impossible to beat for a warm welcome and gracious accommodation.

As born and raised "city folk", Triangle Ranch is probable the closest we would ever get to experiencing the lives of real ranchers. After leaving the highway on our way to the Badlands and the Black Hills and beginning our trip to the ranch(great directions) we knew we were about to experience something very different. Especially as we waited for the cattle to cross the country road, looking at them face to face. Triangle Ranch is the home of a real homestead family. Their beautiful home is even on the list of Historic homes. What a treat we had! Lyndy and Ken invite you into their home as old friends. The accomodations are simple charming and literally tell the story of their family history. Over delicious meals, both dinner and breakfast, we were enlighted by the life and stories of real ranchers. Everything about our experience here was wonderful. If you are looking for a sample of life on the prairie, these hosts, their hospitality and their home will provide it. We can't wait to go back

It make take a while to get there, but the destination is worth it. After a long day of seeing the sights, this was the perfect place to rest. Lyndy and Kenny are the perfect hosts. The accommodations were superb and the breakfast was out of this world. And it was quite tasty, too. Thanks Lyndy.
