What Our Guests Say…

  • 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!

    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.

    Beautiful place to stay on your vacation in the Black Hills! Very clean cabins and grounds. Plenty of exploring right out the back door. Close to many popular destinations! A farm tour is a must!

    Perfect This cabin was perfect! We planned a trip to Mt. Rushmore and this was ideal. So close to the actual monument but we still had a camping feel being in the cabin. There is also an attraction right next to the cabins that is very family friendly and apparently not widely known. We will 100% come back here again.

  • Beautiful cabin in the hills...and woods. Such a great location to enjoy everything the area has to offer. Amazing place to come back to after the days adventures and relax around the campfire before settling in for the evening. The cabin was very clean and comfortable and had everything you could think of, just perfect!

    Everything we wanted and more Our first visit to beautiful SD was only made better by this sweet, cozy cabin tucked away on a hillside in the black hills. My husband and I loved everything about it.....the size, location, amenities, decor. It was that perfect little rustic cabin that we dreamed about getting away to from our hectic lives. Everything we could have needed or wanted for a comfortable stay was in the cabin, and then some! We will be back!

    Great for grandkids The cabins are very nice and well equipped. The close proximity to all of the sites in the Black Hills is a major plus. We had our 11 year old granddaughter with us and she never got bored, enjoyed the campfires at night.

    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.

    Peace and quiet Our cozy cabin was perfect! Tastefully decorated, in the woods, a haven at the end of busy days! We gorged ourselves on eggs and honey from the farm. This will be our spot for years to come.

  • 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.
