This is a beautiful three bedroom log cabin B&B nicely situated off Iron Mountain Road and has an evening view of Mt Rushmore from the deck (sort of, it is a long way away, but lit up in the evening, and the host, Marilyn, has a telescope and binoculars available). Marilyn has a couple indoor dogs and cats, and even a deer wanders near the deck too.
This B&B is located off Playhouse Road (a paved road), and has a one lane inclined gravel road to the cabin (about 50 yards to the parking area). We are avid motorcyclists and this B&B was easily accessible for our motorcycles, albeit, you won't be able to ride your bikes up to the front entrance to unload, but it is only a short walk from the parking area to the main door anyway (maybe 15-20 yards).
We stayed in the Norbeck room, located on the first floor (the other two bedrooms are on the second floor). Our room was nicely decorated, a king size bed, an in-room one person jetted tub, a bathroom with two sinks, toilet and shower, and the room has access to the main deck via a French door, no in-room TV. The Wi-Fi connected easily in our room and in the main sitting area, and unfortunately we could not get Wi-Fi while on the deck area. The Wi-Fi connection is slow, so we couldn't stream, but we were able to check email and slowly upload photos to Facebook and friends.
Breakfast is served buffet style in the main home (and very good food as others have stated), We were surprised that some of the tables and areas in the cabin were cluttered, but then, I am a sort of a neat nick anyway. Breakfast and evening desert are eaten on the deck furniture, and the deck chairs are the reclining/bouncy type chairs, so they are not really comfortable to sit to eat, as you have to sit on the edge of your deck chair, but the view is nice. It hailed and rained one night during our stay and we did eat indoors.
Kudos to our host, Marilyn, who is always available to assist you, help with your trip itinerary and local information, and offer you an evening desert too! We spent four nights at this B&B and will definitely be back again on our next trip to the Mt Rushmore area.
