Loved the cabin. Quiet and peaceful. Everything you need is inside.
The owners are flexible, kind and respectful. Very professional, too. We will be back!


We LOVED staying at yak ridge. My son LOVED going on the farm tour and feeding the yaks. Highly recommend these cabins!


By far one of the best places we have ever stayed. Family friendly – amazing place for kids to get outside and explore nature.


What Our Guests Say…

  • 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!

    Great choice. Central location, clean, all of the extra touches. You won’t regret choosing Yak Ridge!!!


    Quiet retreat Only negative would be that bed is too firm.

  • Cute little cabin Great location and very clean. We had great communication with the host. There are 5 cabins total, which are fairly close together. We didn't feel crowded, but definitely heard and saw our neighbors. Awesome climbing area behind our cabin, with a view in one direction of a little meadow. This property is across the road from the Cosmos Mystery Area. It isn't loud, but there is quite a bit of traffic. All in all a great place to stay that isn't along the hyway! Owner is super responsive and you'll have a great stay.

    Couldn't have been better! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely cabin, what a gem! Beautiful location and so quiet, it felt as if we were miles and miles away from civilization. The cabin is homey and so well kept, it shows that the owners take great pride in their gorgeous property. Quick and hassle-free reservation and check-in and the owner is lightning fast in responding to messages. Thank you for sharing your amazing home away from home with us!

    Great Place


    Excellent Just as described! Excellent location. Located in the woods, but just off a main road and perfect location to all the main sights and attractions. We loved the fire pit in the evenings and the layout of the cabin was great for our family of 5. Cabin was super clean and had everything you would need. We enjoyed the welcome snacks when we arrived - such a nice touch! Highly recommend!

  • Very enjoyable stay Cabin was very pleasant, clean and well stocked; we enjoyed our stay very much. Everything you need is provided except, of course, the food. The location is very convenient to all the local sightseeing points. The grounds were nice and mainly quiet; we had deer come through on at least one occasion.
    The only down side is that this cabin faces directly at one of the other cabins on the property so if you sit in the chairs on the front porch you are looking directly at the other cabin.

    Loved our stay! This quaint cabin what's perfect for a family weekend getaway for our family of four! The area was off the beaten path, but still close to all of the areas attractions. We even received a fun little welcome basket of some local goods when we arrived. My kids loved the assortment of games that were at the cabin.
