We spent two nights at the ranch in the Tree House Cabin. The cabin has a refrigerator and microwave. The cabins are about a half mile from the main house. We had a great time. Our girls loved feeding a calf, playing with and feeding the burros, and feeding the chickens. Great place for a family with kids to stay...

We just returned today from Circle View Guest Ranch. We had such an awesome time! "Circle View" is a very fitting name for their ranch. The home sits on a hill surrounded by beautiful sights to see. They are such a great family, very easy going and a pleasure to talk to. We had a great time feeding the chickens...

The guest ranch was clean, air-conditioned, and had things to do for my 4 and 7 year old. The breakfast was amazing. My only complaint would be that my comments were not read on the invoice when I paid for the room and so not all of our needs were met and if you need anything after dinner it is...

There is a sign on the wall of this property that says you come as strangers and leave as friends. It is completely accurate. This guest house is situated atop a hill in gorgeous country. The breakfast is delicious. The game room was great for my kids to play in. We met interesting people from all over the United States...

This was our second stay at Circle View Guest Ranch. This year we booked for 4 days during July 4th and again we were very happy with the accommodations. Amy and Phil are great hosts and keep a clean ranch. The breakfasts are awesome and we enjoyed all the animals. This is the place to stay in the Badlands!

My wife and I stayed here on an ad-hoc trip to the Badlands. We were fortunate to find this gem a couple miles outside the Badlands on 44. The family that owns this ranch have a rich history of their own, and speaking with them made our stay a lot of fun. They also have a great network of other...

We stayed at the Circleview Ranch for 2 nights as we visited Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands. It is a family owned and operated working ranch with a bed and breakfast and a couple of cabins. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The full breakfast was great. The family seemed very tired and maybe a bit weary of guests. However,...

My family stayed here two nights last week (June 2014). It was a fantastic place to stay! The views were great (My only regret was that it was cloudy both nights and we didn't get to see the night sky). We stayed in the Tree House Cabin and loved it. There are no televisions in the cabins, but you do...

We stayed here for three nights and found the lodging, the family who own the ranch, the view, the breakfast, and the nearness to what needed to be seen in the Badlands top notch. The ranch has multiple guest rooms on the "street level", with the owners living downstairs. The guest area has a spacious living room and eating area,...

Really enjoyed our stay at the circle view ranch. Stayed with our family of 6 at the cowboy cabin. Beds were comfortable and area was remote from main guest ranch. Breakfast was delicious. Especially the blueberry scones !!! Family running ranch were super friendly. Views from main ranch were amazing and we all helped feed the chickens and calf. Game...
