We enjoyed 3 peaceful days/nights at "The Barn" cabin. No complaints! The cabins are clean, well kept, and beautiful! Great place to relax and enjoy your family. This was our second time here and we are already planning another trip in the future. Thank you!

We rented the Miner's Cabin July 17-20. It was perfect for me, my husband and two kids. We also brought our small dog. The cabins are stocked with anything you could possibly need. The grounds are beautiful & the pool is a nice activity to come back to. The property is tucked away but so close to all the attractions....

What a stroke of luck that we found this place! We so enjoyed our whole stay, which was 3 nights in the Miner's cabin. Love the fact that they had a fire pit and a pool that wasn't too busy due to there not being a lot of cabins. Cabins very updated and super clean! The s'more supplies was a...

We rented The Gold Nugget June 5-11, 2016. It was a beautiful place & perfect for the two of us. We researched for a place to stay online. I LOVE their website and everything was as it was shown on their website. There was plenty of room for two and the cabin was clean and everything was stocked and ready....

Stayed in the Bluebird cabin with my family of 5. Kids had a blast on the tire swing and making s'mores over the bonfire. The location is peaceful and beautiful and the cabin was clean and comfortable. Hope to make it a multiple night stay the next time we are in the area.

My husband and my daughter stayed at Backroads Inn & Cabins from July 12-13, 2016 to visit Mount Rushmore. The cabin (Hugo) that we stayed in was just perfect! It was so quaint and "HOMEY". There is not any hotel that could compare to the privacy, serenity and peacefulness that the little cabin gave us. The king size bed and...

We rented The Barn and the Ingersol cabins for a long, talked about family get together. I did a lot of research to find something that would please everyone - from 11 months old to the 16 year old, and adults - young and not so young. I wanted it to be perfect. And it was. Perfect. Location was ideal...

Checked in with no problem, easy to find, great location if you like being very close to all the touristy shops and restaurants, and only 10 minutes to Mt. Rushmore. The only conerns were when we checked in, my wife looked around cabin before letting the kids come in and she saw across the master bedroom the sidedoor leading outside...

David, I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the location and the ease of checking in. On the other hand, I'm very sorry that you and your wife did not feel safe in your cabin. In 5 years, this is the first time that I've been informed that my staff forget to lock the deadbolt on a backdoor. I can...

We stayed in the Golden Slipper Cabin and it was perfect! It was super cute and CLEAN!!!! The view is amazing and the added bonus was the Steam Train rolling by every couple of hours during the day. These cabins are close to all of the attractions and minutes away from the heart of Keystone!

We stayed in the Golden Slipper Cabin. It was a wonderful stay! We were close to many attractions. We had a deck and fire pit to enjoy in the evenings. The inside was spacious, clean, and all around nice. The owners were very helpful. Highly recommended!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our goal is simple: create a space and atmosphere that allows peace, rejuvenation and quality time with others. In order for this to be made tangible, our cabins are filled with the modern comforts of plush furniture and full kitchens amidst the rustic character of knotty pine walls and custom-made log headboards. Our grounds reflect the natural setting of the Black Hills, replete with tree-covered hills, beautiful rocks, stillness and an array of wildlife: birds, squirrels, bunnies and the occasional flock of turkeys and herd of deer. While at our property, you are our guests and will be treated as friends. We will do whatever we can to make your time one of enjoyment and relaxation. Make time to get away; it'll be worth it. ... more   less
