We enjoyed our visit here so much! The place was spotless, the hosts were personable, the food was spectacular, the scenery....beautiful. We would go back again...in fact, this may be our new favorite place! Go...you will enjoy it immensely.

Room Tip: Ask for big whirlpool tub in room

Cindy and Isaac very graciously accommodated my daughter’s December 24th wedding request. Not only did they agree to host our party over Christmas, serve us an excellent dinner and Christmas morning breakfast, Cindy even performed the wedding ceremony.

Mother Nature cooperated as well with a beautiful and timely snowfall. Couldn’t ask for a more picturesque setting. My husband and I stayed in one of the rooms with a Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi was a perfect way to end a perfect evening. Highly recommend the cheesecake. It was every bit as good as promised.

Room Tip: Definitely recommend one of the rooms with a Jacuzzi.

Wife and I decieded to stay here for a little "just us" getaway. Well this was our first time here and also at a B&B ,I think all others should follow this standard. A nice fire to dine by, pleasant hosts, made you feel at home, not just a travler. We had the rib-eye. Now I have enjoyed lots of theses in my time and this was excellent!!! Cooked perfectly, and you better be ready to put on the feed bag as you will have plenty to eat. You have to have the cheese cake!!!!!! It is the BEST I have ever had. I hate to say it, but it even beats Mothers and thats saying a lot!!! Room was comfortable and clean. We enjoyed our stay and meal so much that we have already made reservations for our Anniversary stay ,also gave a package as a thank you gift to family. I don't give a review lightly, everything I have said is true here . One reviewer complains of no cell service, who cares? Want to yak on the phone just stay home. You just can't go wrong here. This will always be the place for us when we can just get away. Wife says" a wonderful, very relaxing time". George & Marlene, Wyoming

Room Tip: # 8 tuscan ... quiet room

Isaac and Cindy are most gracious hosts! We spent Thanksgiving at their Lodge and were made to feel most welcome; enjoyed a lovely afternoon and evening with them, their family, and friends. Very comfortable accomodations and excellent food! Worth a visit (or several!)

The pictures and reviews convinced us to book for two nights. We went with another couple and I spoke with the owners personally of their recommendation of rooms. Room one was okay but room number nine should not have been rented out no less be referred to as a king jacuzzi suite. It was old and poorly furnished. There were not even night stands. I had to put my things on the floor next to the bed. One of the bathrooms had no outlets for toothbrushes, etc. The jacuzzi was luke warm and when we reported it we were told the people before us thought it was fine. The TV didn't work and there is no cell service anywhere in this resort, although a public phone is provided for emergencies. On top of everything we had heard what wonderful cooks the owners were..... welll they were on vacation.

Room Tip: Do not choose number nine under any circumstances.

We stayed three nights in early October. There was a mix up and the room we reserved had been double booked. We were offered a lesser room for the first night and the room we wanted for nights two and three. Cindy called a few days ahead and apologized, but in turn offered dinner and bottle of wine.

DInner was delicious! Some of the best rib-eye we've had. It was so big we brought the leftovers home! Delicious the second time too!

We enjoyed the other guests and the relaxed atmosphere the inn offered. Excellent breakfasts and great coffee all day long.

Thank you, Cindy and Isaac for a much needed break!

Room Tip: We do not recomend the Ducks Unlimited for romance.

Reviewed September 30, 2012

We and another couple stayed here in September 2012 for 3 days in rooms 1 and 8. We would rate it 3.5 stars.

Pros
- Breakfast: Cooking quality was excellent, perhaps the best we have ever had.
- Dietary Restrictions: The hosts are very interested and capable in terms of meeting dietary restrictions.
- Common Area: This is large and comfortable
- Rooms: Large and beds are comfortable. Reasonably nicely furnished.
- Facility: The facility is well kept and the front section is attractive.

Medium
- Location: It’s further from Rapid City than I thought; probably to far for a quick drive in for dinner and back. On the other hand it’s about 12 minutes from Hill City which has some good places to eat and the usual tourist stuff. It’s also a lot closer to the Black Hills tourist stuff than Rapid City.
- Location: The location is just far enough off the highway that it cannot be seen from the highway. They have a sign on the highway, but I don’t recall if it is lit at night. The turn is a local road and does not have a street light, so it’s tricky and easy to miss at night.

Cons
- PLUMBING: The temperature of the shower water for both rooms fluctuated significantly when a water source somewhere else (e.g. toilet) was used.
- Plumbing: In room 1 the shower faucets both turned in the same direction (rather than opposite), so adjusting the temperature was non-intuitive.
- Plumbing: In room 8 the shower faucets are very difficult to adjust from outside the shower because the toilet is in the way.
- Grounds and local area: Room 1 has an outside entrance which opens onto a patio where the Inn serves dinners during the summer. They had just suspended service there for the season when we arrived and the tables and chairs were stacked up – it was a bit tacky. Also the far side of the Inn and back were not well kept and visually a bit tacky.

Room Tip: Call for reservations and be prepared to discuss dietary restrictions, if any.
