We just spent three days at the Flying B Ranch in Rapid Cirty, SD. It was an incredible and meorable experience. Larry and Bonnie are wonderful hosts. The BB is totally remodeled with three rooms to choose from. We stayed in Doc Allen suite which easily fit the six of us (Two adults and four kids). The room had a hot tub and deck.

The location is about 4 miles from downtown (but yet seems to be in the middle of no where). They serve an incredible breakfast everyday with each day being better than the the next. If you appreciate great made from scratch food using the freshing local ingredients, this is the place for you. Larry's stories and tours of the ranch were equally memorable for the kids. All in all an incredible experience

This was one of the best vacations we ever had. Bonnie and Larry are fantastic hosts. Their hospitality exceeded anything we have previously experienced and we can't imagine finding better in the future. While there is much to see in the Rapid City area, including Mt. Rushmore, it was hard to drag our son off the ranch. He spent every morning with Larry feeding animals and driving the tractor. By the time we left, he thought he was an experienced rancher. The breakfasts at the Flying B are superb and entertaining. Guests are treated to tales from the "old timer" which are not to be missed. The only thing wrong with the vacation was that it was TOO SHORT. If you go to South Dakota you have to stop by!

It’s almost impossible to explain just how great a place the Flying B is to stay. It’s close to some of the most beautiful scenery in God’s creation, the hosts are tremendous, the food is great, and the accommodations are spectacular.
We chose the Flying B as the place to stay for our 30th anniversary because it was so close to the Black Hills and we always wanted to ride a motorcycle through that area. The fact that it was on a 3,500 acre ranch helped in our decision because we love the country life. Little did we know that we were in for the treat of our lives. Bonnie and Larry have put together a mixture of comfort, interest, and history that has no equal, and they are perfect hosts.
Bonnie makes an incredible feast for breakfast. Some of the best times of our stay were when we were sitting in the kitchen, while she made the meal, talking with the hosts and other guests. Larry helps with the preparation, but it doesn’t take long to notice that Bonnie needs to redirect him to task quite often. Once you have had enough to eat and the table is cleared, Bonnie will be glad to sit down with you and help you plan your day. Her knowledge of the area’s scenic roads, attractions, and places to eat were a vital component in what may have been the best vacation of our lives.
Larry by himself would be worth the trip. He has a rare combination of charisma and ADHD that makes him a whole lot of fun. He has a story at hand that explains anything you might ask him, and some of those explanations are actually true. If you’re not in a hurry to get somewhere else, he’ll take you for a tour around the ranch and even let you help with the chores. That may not sound like a lot of fun but ask the kids who get to bottle-feed the calves or the guys that get to drive the real ranch equipment and you’ll find it can be a great time.
I don’t want to repeat what has been said in other reviews about the rooms, spas, pool, game room, and kitchenette. I just want to say that everything reviewers are telling you about the Flying B is true. Maybe you shouldn’t take our word for it though; maybe you should try it out yourself!

This was my first bed and breakfast experience...and it couldn't have been better! My wife and I stayed at the Flying B for ONLY 2 nights...and wish we could've stayed more. We're already planning on returning w/our 5 children next summer. It is a great place for a couple or an entire family. The ranch is set in a beautiful valley...you'd think you were in the middle of the range in Wyoming...when, in fact, you're 5 minutes from the Rapid City mall. Bonnie & Larry are outstanding hosts. Our room, The McClintock, couldn't have been better...especially when we opened the skylights at night for that fresh, cool air. You'll especially appreciate the cowboy theme of the room...quite tastefully done.

Bonnie made a unique, outstanding, and delicious breakfast each morning....It was quite the way to start out our day. It turns out that the Flying B has an 'Old-Timer' that always makes an apperance at breakfast as well....I did notice that Larry stepped out alot...just about the time the 'Old-Timer' came by. Thanks to the 'Old-Timer', I've learned so much more 'authentica' history about The West, Sitting Bull, South Dakota. It was GREAT fun.

Also, don't miss out on the tour of the ranch w/Larry. He'll take you in his pickup to many interesting places on this beautiful 3,500 acre ranch. He may even let you feed Blackie The Calf.

You're simply missing out if you don't stay here when you're in the area!

We stayed at the Flying B Ranch for a total of nine nights in August. What a great place! Bonnie and Larry are such fantastic hosts!

As with the previous reviewer, we also stayed in the Kid Hall Suite. In fact, our experience was so similar, we could almost restate their review word for word.

What was not to love?
- private hot tub on our own deck overlooking the ranch
- large swimming pool that we almost always had to ourselves
- large, clean rooms
- amazing breakfasts made from scratch by Bonnie
- spell-binding after-breakfast stories by the "Old-Timer"...(who knew there was such "history" at the Flying B?)
- the kids getting to experience some of the ranch chores with Larry
- great hospitality; the feeling that we weren't just "paying guests"...we were treated as part of the family

On top of all that, the location is ideal for touring the Black Hills. We used the ranch as a base for exploring all over the region...nothing is much more than an hour away. Rapid City itself is only five minutes south, although you'd never know it when you're at the ranch.

The Flying B made for a memorable vacation!
