“Fabulous stay!”
Reviewed 27 July 2011

This was a fabulous place to stay. We rented cabin #5 & it was perfect for our family. Kids slept in the loft and loved it! Owner were super nice and friendly - even came down to check on us & brought fresh towels. Cabin was super cute and very clean. also perfectly located - 10 min. from Mt. Rushmore and Peter Norbeck Hwy, 30 min. from Crazy Horse, 1 hr from Jewel cave. We would absolutely stay here again!

We were so impressed with the facilities and the hosts, after taking a chance and selecting the place on the web. I would love to retire in such a nice, new cabin -everything you needed was already there -clean and comfortable. Within minutes we were at Rushmore, and into Custer park watching all the game animals. Some good dining is nearby in Keystone. It's also a good place to stay in order to get to the airport in Rapid City and a good choice for visiting the Badlands.

The cabin worked out great for the 3 of us (my grown son, boyfriend and myself). The cabin was really clean and well-stocked for an accomodation of this type. The location was convenient. The owners were helpful.

Only negative is the road noise.

First, these are beautiful cabins. They are new and very clean. However, they are right off a 60 MPH highway, which can be a bit noisy. The biggest problem that we had was with the owners who are extremely...well...crazy. We rented three of their cabins for four nights totaling over $2,000. One of our little ones moved a couple of flat slate rocks from their wall around the fire pit area about 10 x 6 x 1 inches. She [Owner] pointed this out to me and I apologized and said that I would place them back on the wall. She pursued to yell at me because they needed to be placed in a certain manner. Now, I didn't go to "rock wall building university" but I'm pretty sure that I could have placed them back without issue. This being only one run in that we had with the owners on items they perceived to be detrimental to the state of their facility, which I assure you, they were not. It got to the point where we were just plain scared to touch anything. A few weeks after our stay, we received a bill and a note to replace a towel that had a stain on it. Non of us are sure what she is talking about, but we let if go not wanting anything else to do with these people. My suggestion is that if you are looking for just a place to sleep while roaming around the Black Hill, this is a great place. But this is not the place if you have a family, plan to be together, grill, and let the kids play.

Stayed in one of the cabins at the top of the hill, away from the highway, and would recommend that, as those lower down may be noisier. As it was, ours was quiet, clean, well furnished (if basic and spare), overall a great place for the price paid.
It rained most of the time we were there, but still easy to get around the grounds and to the car which was parked approx 40' away.
Only issue was that that the hot water was gone pretty quickly before two showers were over....small hot water receptacle. With room for 4 people in the cabin, you'd have to meter out the time in the shower.
Also make sure you understand how to work the TV and dish network installation.....no instructions.
Otherwise great place, centrally located, nic facility, pretty setting. Would certainly recommend.

Our family of five (kids ages 10, 9, 6) stayed three nights at the cabins. There are many things we liked about the place, and a couple we didn't like. These are new, cute, and contain all the basics for a good stay--kitchenette with sink, mini-fridge with freezer, microwave, electric skillet plus outdoor grill; amenities like dish soap, matches, salt & pepper, coffee, lighter fluid, and dishes/flatware/cooking utensils; and plenty of room for sleep. The owners are very nice. The cabins are close to many sights/
attractions like Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Black HIlls, Reptile Gardens, Bear Country, alpine slides, helicopter rides... so location is great. The first drawback is that there isn't any space for a family to "hang out"--the living area is tiny (futon and t.v.) , which would have been o.k. except we had a couple nights of cold and rain and stayed in. The biggest drawback for us was the road noise, since the driveway is right off a busy two-lane highway. Others may not find this a problem (and much of the lodging in the area is right off the road as well), but it is not a quiet setting in the woods. Given the above positive attributes, though, we would still recommend Rustic Ridge Guest Cabins.
