What Our Guests Say…

  • Great Place!! This is a great place to stay for anyone wanting to take in all the great places to see around the Keystone area. The location of the cabin is very centralized for all the attractions nearby.
    We loved sitting on the porch in the evening feeding and watching the chipmunks feast on cracker crumbs.
    We will stay again for sure!

    Cozy Place We really enjoyed staying at Yak Ridge Cabin. The cabin is clean and has everything you need. There's even board games and books for your spare time. It is centrally located - close to everything yet nestled in quiet woods full of deer, fawns and wild turkeys that we loved to watch at dusk and dawn. Trully a hidden gem in the Black Hills. We highly recommend!

    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.

    Great Cabin, Great Location We highly recommend staying at the Yak Ridge Cabins. They are very clean and well taken care of and the amenities were great. The location is perfect for hitting all of the area sights. Everything is within a short drive of the cabin in all directions. Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Devil's Tower, Custer State Park, Badlands Scenic Highway, Needles Highway, 1880 Train etc. It was also great for a relaxing evening after a long day of sight seeing.

  • Perfect Extremely clean little cabin. Appreciated that it was off the beaten path, next to 3 other cabins, but still had a secluded feel. There were little gifts left for our us which were both unexpected, and useful. The kids enjoyed climbing the hill just next to the cabin, sitting around the fire, and playing the marble and board games. We will definitely return!

    Location The cabin was clean, peaceful and comfortable for the 4 adults with each bedroom having its own bathroom. Location was perfect for the sites we wanted to see like Mt Rushmore, Hill City, Keystone, and Crazy Horse and the host was great! We definitely will go back when we go out there again. Would recommend Yak Ridge Cabins
