We just got back from a 4 night stay at Whispering Winds. We stayed in the Sportsman's Cottage. It was the perfect size for our family. This is our second time staying, and it is perfect! My husband and I have three little girls (4, 2, and 7 months) and my mom also joined us. There is one private room with 2 beds and a tv with a dvd player. There is also a futon in the living room with another kind sized bed. The kitchen has a sink, toaster, coffee pot, microwave, paper plates, utensils for eating and grilling, and a refrigerator with a freezer. It's everything you need! The bathroom was great as well, and there was plenty of room for what we needed. We could also get fresh towels whenever we needed them.
There is a big grill on the deck that is yours to use throughout the stay which was also fantastic! There is great patio furniture on the deck where you can relax and enjoy the view. It's great to be able to park right outside of the cottage, and have your coolers, etc right out on the deck. The grounds are in a little bit of a valley, so there isn't any risk of the kids running onto the road. They also installed a playset as well, which was perfect for our kiddos. Swings, a slide, and a rock climbing wall, as well as tons of open space to run around. It isn't super crowded, which is great! We also got a great nights sleep as the grounds were very quiet at night.
Jim and Marla were fantastic hosts! Super friendly and answered all of our questions about the area. They started a camp fire every night and the girls LOVED making s'mores.
If you are thinking of staying some place in the black hills, without a doubt, THIS is the place to stay. We are already planning for next year! :)
