“Relaxing & quiet stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We loved, loved, loved this place!! Two cabins in the woods, with great amenities, private outdoor hot tub, picnic table & chairs for relaxing, sipping wine, & watching the deer, turkeys, birds, etc. We stayed 3 days but could've stayed longer. Joyce & Russell are amazing, interesting, & caring hosts. Breakfasts are fantastic, delivered by Joyce each morning. A nice swing on the front porch & very cozy inside the cabin with everything one could need. We WILL return one day!!!

Room Tip: Great base location for all the wonderful Black Hills activities.

This place is fantastic. My wife and I spent 4 days here and wish it would have more.

The cabin we stayed in is very private and features a hot tub right outside the front deck. The cabin overlooks a little creek and the beautiful surrounding hills.

Breakfast is delivered at your desired time and is amazing.

I can't say enough good things about this place - you need to go there.

I am so pleased to have found Willow Springs Cabins. Planning a tour from DC out to the South Dakota plains, I love to find B&Bs where we can meet the locals and just relax for a few days - this we could certainly do at Willow Springs Cabins - thank you Joyce and Russell. The breakfasts were delicious (so much so, I asked for the recipes), the cabin was delightful and fully equipped and extremely comfortable, and the surroundings were beautiful. The extra bonuses were Phoebe, the Golden Retriever and the swimming hole - both a big hit with all of us.
Thank you again, Joyce and Russell for making our trip so memorable and special.

We rented both cabins for 2 nights on our recent trip to South Dakota and were "wowed" by how fantastic our experience was. The cabins were adorable; perfectly decorated with all of the amenities you would need. The location is secluded but is an easy drive to Mount Rushmore, Custer Park, Crazy Horse, etc. Joyce (the owner) was extremely nice and SO helpful. As an added bonus we got to visit with her Golden Retriever Phoebe (we are dog lovers and were missing our own dogs when we arrived!)
We had jam-packed our days with sites to see around Rapid City/ Keystone, but took a few hours one afternoon to just sit on the porch and relax; deer came right up to the area in front of the cabins to eat while we sat there. Breakfast was fantastic as well! A wonderful, wonderful experience.

comfortable - cozy - private - peaceful! We stayed for 5 nights and it was just long enough to do all the touristy things and still have a little time for some R & R. Having a hot (delicious) breakfast delivered to your door was every morning was worth it's weight in (black hills) gold!! We loved it.

We've just spent four nights at Willow Springs and can recommend it highly. It is completely secluded yet only about 20 minutes to all the services of Rapid City. In about the same travel time Sheridan Lake Rd. in the opposite direction takes you into the heart of the Black Hills and avoids all of the high traffic and "touristy" jumble of the other more travelled roads in the area. Joyce and Russ are born to the roles of B&B hosts, they're knowledgable about the area, keep the place in perfect condition and Joyce delivers amazing breakfasts in a wicker basket on her ATV. The sound of Joyce coming up the road to the cabin in the morning will cause a Pavlov's dog type reaction after a day or two. The talk of the night before was always "I wonder what's for breakfast?"! Our cabin was spotless and comfortable, a fine bed, decorated in an attractive mountain theme with ample outdoor furniture and a pretty adjoining garden. Phoebe, the young Golden retriever was a regular visitor, she is well behaved though. Days were warm during our stay but we never used the AC, the open windows and cross ventilation worked well as the nights cooled off quickly. We'll definitely be back, Chuck and Pam T

We stayed here for our first anniversary twelve years ago and it was love at first sight, and second, and many more to come. The setting is incredible with the seclusion, nearby creek with swimming hole, hiking trails galore, wildlife, and more. You are at the end of the road but at the same time just off the highway and close to the many Black HIlls attractions. Joyce is a devine cook and very well suited to the hostess role knowing when to be non-intrusive and when to be a friend with tons of information and informed opinions. The cabins are rustic but very comfortable as Russ is a master carpenter by trade and he has built and refurbished everything with loving care on this property that came down from his pioneering grand parents.
