“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Tucked away in the Black Hills, Summer Creek Inn, built by Dan the owner, is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed at. The place is designed beautifully and has a lot of amenities you would not expect from a B&B. The food was great. The towels and linens (very important to us) were exceptional. Not having internet access was a pain, but we adjusted. An afternoon snack (even peanuts in a dish) would have been nice as would easy access to ice.
I recommend this place to anyone visiting the area

We are still raving to friends and relatives about our wonderful stay at this B&B. The owners make you feel right at home, the room was like a spa and had everything you might need. The food was out of this world and Dan and Nancy were very willing to give us any last minute travel tips for the area. The location was great...so look no farther because this is the inn that will bring you the best memories of your vacation.

Dan and Nancy were born to be innkeepers! Their b&b is beautiful on the inside and out, just like them. The common areas and the suites are spacious and well-decorated. The inn is absolutely spotless and looks brand new. The breakfasts were beyond anything we've ever had at a b&b and the conversation with them and the other guests was delightful. The inn was centrally located to all the sightseeing in Southwestern South Dakota and by the end of our 4 night stay it felt like it was our own neighborhood. We would definitely stay there again and recommended it to others without hesitation!

This is an absolutely lovely, charming property, inside and out. The rooms are lovely, and the views cannot be beat. Dan and Nancy were custom builders before reinventing themselves as innkeepers and the property shows it. They are gracious hosts, and the breakfasts are not to be missed. There is so much to do in the area that we could not get it all in, and hope to return. When we do, we will definitely try to book with Summer Creek again. (I think it is very much in demand so we will need to plan early).

Room Tip: We were in suite #1 which was on the ground floor, had a private whirlpool and patio and was lovely.

With a lot of thought, I suppose it might be possible to find some small niggling fault, but it's simpler and more truthful to say that this is probably the best accommodation we have ever been privileged to stay in. The welcome was wonderfully friendly, the bedroom and bathroom spacious and equipped with everything you need. As for the breakfasts, they have to be tried to be believed. If you want to explore the Black Hills of Dakota, Custer State Park, Mount Rushmore and all the other attractions of this area, then you would be hard pushed to find a better place, or better hosts than Dan and Nancy.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent!

Nancy and Dan have created a gem! Summer Creek is one of the best thought out B&B's in which we have stayed. Rooms are exceptionally clean and spacious. Bathrooms are roomy and the breakfasts are superb. Very well located for Mt Rushmore, Custer SP, Crazy Horse, Hill City, etc. Stayed 4 nights and were very pleased with the experience. Will stay there again if we are in the area.

This charming couple welcomed us and our friends staying there for a wedding nearby. They also hosted the rehearsal dinner. The location is convenient, the rooms are quiet, good size, lovely bedding and the food is to rave about. Add all that to a very reasonable price and you have a real winner. We all had a great time.
