  • This was a lovely cabin! True to photos. Cabins are far enough apart that there was a lot of privacy and quiet. We saw many deer! We would definitely come back!

    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 🙂

    Absolutely lovely cabin, the location, the deer, turkey and chip monks. Hiking around the property and down the road in the snow was awesome. The cabin was perfect size and very comfortable. Short Road trips are easy and beautiful drives. Favorite drive was from Spearfish to Hill City on 14A. The place to make great memories.

    Nice cabins in a great location! Very conveniently located cabins just off Hwy 16 with easy access to many area attractions, yet providing a sense of privacy and remoteness.

    The cabin was clean, well equipped in the essentials in the bathroom (including a hairdryer!) and the kitchen, with sufficient heat for cold November nights. The welcome gift of fruit, cheese, coffee and fresh eggs was an extra nice addition to make us immediately feel at home.

    Highly recommend this place!

    I stayed at Yak Ridge for four nights with three friends. Julie was the consummate host. We loved our cabin and I so highly recommend. It really is so convenient to Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Rapid City, Badlands, wineries, Cosmos Mystery. Deer and wild turkey in our yard. Just absolutely perfect for us.

    Tucked away cabin, close to it all. This well-appointed cabin located minutes from Mount Rushmore and Custer state park is an excellent choice for travel to the Hill Country, Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, Badlands, and Devils Tower. From your porch you can see deer and wild turkey walk right on by and within 10 minutes be having a drink in Keystone or viewing Mount Rushmore. The beds and sheets were extremely comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and the views from and cabin were nice.

    Fantastic cabins in the heart of the Black Hills. My family loved our stay and Julie and Jim were lovely hosts. The cabin had everything as advertised and much more. Julie was kind enough to show my family around her farmstead; my kids absolutely loved feeding the Yaks.

  • Lovely cabin and great location We loved this place. It was cozy and private. There are other cabins nearby but we still had our privacy. The cabin was very clean and welcoming. There was a lovely welcome gift as well as a half dozen farm fresh eggs awaiting us. It’s location is near all the Black Hills attractions. We would stay there again if we were to ever vacation in that area again. Thank you Julie.

    Beautiful cabin in the woods We arrived late at night and were looking for great comfort, which we received at this beautiful cabin. It was easy to enter, everything was spotless clean, and we felt immediately home. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the black hills more!
