Hisega Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This lodge has a convenient location yet still quiet and quaint. Listen to the creek running by as you fall to sleep. The breakfasts are fabulous and will last you all day If you like historic and rustic, this is the place.

I first saw Hisega Lodge in the summer of 2011 when I was riding through the Black Hills. I met Carole and she showed me around the lodge. Unfortunately the lodge was full and there were no vacancies but I made a reservation for the following year. During the year I kept in touch with Carole (owner/inn keeper) as I counted down the days until my 2012 Black Hills vacation.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I rate Hisega Lodge at a 9.9. My only criticism is that our room was very small. The bed was wonderful and the shower was great...no complaints there at all. The night air was always cool and the sound of Rapid Creek was oh so soothing it made for great nights sleep. The overall ambiance of the lodge was wonderful, a true mountain lodge. The highlight were the breakfasts... truely gourmet. Carole and her husband Ken are wonderful hosts. I also need to mention that the staff that assists Carole with breakfast and around the lodge in general do a very good job at what they do. They all seem so happy that you are there and they go out of their way to make sure that the all of the guests stays are perfect. The lodge is about 10 miles outside of Rapid City which is perfect. You wouldn't want a mountain lodge on main street. The location is secluded but close enough to all the attractions and a few really good restaurants. There is even a laundrymat close by that is open until 8pm. You can drop your clothes off in the morning and pick them up later washed and folded. I dropped off a laundry bag full of clothes and the bill was less than $6. You get peace & quiet, cool air in summer, mountain lodge ambiance, gourmet food and wonderful appreciative hosts. I highly recommend Hisega Lodge.

The HISEGA lodge was perfect...a quiet and beautiful location, close to anything and everything you would want to see in South Dakota....it offers a historic lodge, an inviting great room, and a homey feel. Our room was a cozy with a king size comfortable bed and the view and sounds of the river flowing outside (we stayed in the Trout room)... all topped with an excellent and filling breakfast and wonderful company (the other guests). We stayed five nights...Carol and her staff went out of the way to accomodate my special diet, and despite her husband having injured himself the day of our arrival - she managed all her guests, the inn, and breakfasts with great aplomb. It was like staying at the house of a friend. The morning we left, we had to leave a bit earlier than breakfast time and Carol provided a great sack breakfast of hard boiled eggs, meats, fruits and muffins fous to eat on the way to the airport. Would definitely return and recommend.

Since every review sings the praises of Carol and Hisega Lodge, there is little of significance we can add, but ... this place really is special, so here's our two cents. The historical connection with Mount Rushmore is fascinating. Each breakfast is unique, the best overall we've ever experienced in a B&B. The common areas - porch, great room with roaring fire, library, eating area - are so inviting that travelers quickly become friends (no joke). The bedrooms are small (good beds!), but why would anyone stay in there when the Black Hills are just outside? We left for home after 5 days at the Lodge... The breakfast Carol handed us on the way out the door at 6:00 a.m. included fresh muffins, boiled eggs, apples, bananas, buttered bread, and a thoughtful note. We would recommend the Hisega Lodge to anyone. -- Jim & Faye, TN

If you are looking for an old lodge off the beaten track, this is the place for you. We stayed in the Ada room on the back of the lodge. It was decorated in an eclectic style... some old things... some new. The bathroom is tiny so if you are a large or tall person you may want to request a room with a larger bath. The towels were thick. The toiletries upscale. The bed comfortable. Breakfast was served family style. The food was delicious and plentiful.

Room Tip: If you think you'd like to hear the rippling of the stream from your room book a room on the fro...

This B&B has a great view of the Black Hills. You have easy access to all the surrounding tourist sites or you can stay at the B&B all day and sit on the porch and relax listening to the sounds of a rushing stream. The breakfast was the best yet that we have had at a B&B and the owners, Carol and Ken are great people. The room was clean and the perfect size. I highly reccomend this place!

The Hisega Lodge is a very cozy and welcoming place to stay. The public rooms are full of books and art and pictures so there is always something relaxing to do. Outside of the lodge there is beautiful scenery with a creek running alongside the road - perfect for fishermen. Even the sound of the creek adds a lot to the experience. You are close to Rapid City but feel like you are way out in the country. The breakfast served by the hosts is so delicious and filling you won't need to eat again until dinner. I can't wait to stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lost Cabin Room which was quite unique and very quiet. I have not seen the other ro...
