  • This is a great cabin. It's tastefully appointed. Has instructions about what and where to go. Quiet and safe. The shampoo and soap package even included a rubber ducky. They also had a little food basket in the refrigerator with farm fresh eggs.

    Charming cabin This charming cabin was even better than I expected. It is nestled in a beautiful wooded area, and it is very close to Mt Rushmore and other attractions. I would highly recommend this cabin.

    Wonderful and beautiful place to stay Arrived late so wasn’t able to set up fire and roast s’mores over the fire pit with my family. So arrive with daylight b/c the cabin sits nicely in the woods. The inside decor is top notch. New everything. Nice bathroom. Comfortable bed. All the pans, utensils and spices you need for a meal. The attention to detail, such as the outside hanging flower planters made the cabin warm and comfortable as a home.

  • 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 🙂

    Trip to Black Hills Cabin was great (clean & comfortable). There were other cabins at the facility but they are not right on top of each other like many other places. Excellent location to serve as home base to see everything in the region.

    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.

  • Quaint, peaceful cabin in the Black Hills My family and I loved our stay at Yak Ridge Cabins. The cabin was perfect for our stay. It was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The location was ideal; nature right outside of the cabin and close to everything. We visited in December and enjoyed the peacefulness of the Black Hills. We even got snow one day. Absolutely beautiful. This is a great cabin for family. Our toddler and teens enjoyed themselves. It would also be great for a couple getaway. Thank you for the winter getaway.

    Wow. Yak Ridge Cabins were amazing. Julie is SO responsive and sweet. The cabins are tucked away, private and quiet. They provided many games and even some hot cocoa 🙂 We had a great time. Please stay here! Super clean also!
