We stayed here for 3nights in September (apologies for the lateness of posting the review!) and it was one of the highlights of our 2week trip!
From the moment you arrive Lesley and Ron, and not forgetting Abby their lovely little labrador, go out of their way to make you feel at home. Lesley is the perfect hostess and the breakfasts all freshly prepared by her were divine! We really liked chatting to other guests whilst waiting for breakfast to be served, and getting practical tips from Ron about the plans for that day, he really does know the area and his tip about Wall Drug store on our day trip to the Badlands made a good stopping off point.
We stayed in the John T Chance room and it was lovely with a little private deck which lead up to our parking place, although from what we saw of the other rooms we'd be happy to stay in any of them.
Location is great, so peaceful and relaxing after a full days exploring and only about 4 miles from Hill City so very handy for grabbing a bite to eat, again Lesley and Ron have menus of all the restaurants there and recommended a few to us.
A few on here comment on the lack of wi fi. Yes we asked when we got there if they had it, but they didn't so no big deal as at the end of the day you are in the middle of the Black Hills not a big city, thus I definitely don't agree on marking down for this reason. Actually quite nice to have neither this nor no mobile reception,it means you can truly relax from modern life!
Would and hopefully will stay there again in a heartbeat!
