    Clean and Peaceful Took my parents to see Mt Rushmore and the surrounding area...found this place on VRBO and so glad we did! We enjoyed peaceful evenings sitting by a fire and watching wildlife! The cabin was clean and perfect! Great hidden gem here!

    The cabins are conveniently located to area attractions but far enough away from the main highway to allow for privacy and quiet. Our cabin was spotless and well furnished both with necessities and unexpected bonuses. We were there for four nights, and would have liked to have stayed for four more.

    Peaceful setting Our first family vacation to the Black Hills was made perfect with finding a cabin at Yak Ridge. So clean and comfortable. Our family enjoyed cooking s’mores at the fire pit and eating a dinner on the porch. The cabin has everything we needed to get away and enjoy our stay. Julie was an amazing host and we highly recommend Yak Ridge!

    Perfect Getaway We stayed with for a long weekend with our 3 kids and had a wonderful time! We will be back! The location was perfect to Mount Rushmore and all of the other attractions. The cabins were the perfect size. The setting is beautiful and Julie was extremely helpful.

    Very relaxing The cabin is located in a relaxing forest of mixed pine and hardwoods. Deer are around the cabin as was a chipmunk. The cabin is well stocked and suited for a max of five people if one does not mind the couch.

    Clean, cozy, conveniently located! There were 4 of us in Cabin 3, it was the perfect size for us. The kitchen was fully stocked and we cooked dinner almost every night. It was clean and well maintained. It was really conveniently located. It's a really central location if you're wanting to go to the Badlands and Custer etc. Loved it!

    Our stay at Yak Ridge was absolutely fantastic! Julie upgraded us to a larger cabin and there was a very thoughtful welcome basket when we arrived. We felt right at home in this updated cabin with all the amenities we could have asked for. The location was a great home base for exploring all over the Black Hills. Julie and Jim even gave us a tour of their farmstead on our last day! We would love to stay again.

    WORRY FREE The location is convenient to area attractions, only one-half of a mile from the highway, providing both privacy and easy access. The cabin was clean, and had all expected amenities and then some. Julie was responsive to our requests regarding information and provided helpful insight. We were 100% satisfied with our four nights there but, disappointed that we did not have a few more.

    Gorgeous scenery with all the extras We had a lovely time at Yak Ridge! It is secluded but just minutes away from Mt Rushmore. It is stocked with everything you need and the little extras you’ll appreciate. Everything was very clean, a generous gift bag awaits you, and the setting is beautiful. A doe and fawn wandered nearby as we ate dinner outside one night. I highly recommend Yak Ridge!

  • My boyfriend & I were on a 3 day road trip from Chicago to Mt Rushmore and we were so excited to stay at this cabin! Julie & Jim’s cabin was extremely cozy and clean with a feel good touch. It had everything we needed from kitchenware to movies. The area was very peaceful and quiet and it was easy to drive in & out of.

    Wow, Julie and Jim are absolutely amazing hosts and their cabin is adorable, safe, clean and cozy!! We felt like we were in the perfect location, very close to Mt. Rushmore, Custer Park and fun little towns like Hill City and Keystone. Julie took us on a tour of their incredible farm with chickens, bees, and yaks. She taught us so much about the surrounding areas and she could not have been more accommodating. We will miss this place!! Hope to be back soon 🙂

  • An absolute beautiful cabin away from the city but still close enough for quick trips to town.

    This is a tidy, sparkling-new cabin in the woods with easy access to many of the sites that the area has to offer. We loved it.

    Super great trip. Had a blast. There was a super cool map on the wall of the BADLANDS. it gave tips on how to do a badlands road trip. We followed it and had the greatest adventures with our kids. Super cool.
