What Our Guests Say…

  • 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.

    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!

    A great cabin for our family of 5! The kids played in the snow, we had a campfire and s’mores, and toured the farm. Highly recommend this place for families! Very quiet and tucked away.

    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.

    Wonderful experience! From checkin to check out we had an amazing time. Every detail of the property had been carefully considered. The cabin was in an ideal location close to many areas we wanted to visit yet secluded and peaceful. Wonderful vacation.

  • 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.

    Gorgeous scenery with all the extras We had a lovely time at Yak Ridge! It is secluded but just minutes away from Mt Rushmore. It is stocked with everything you need and the little extras you’ll appreciate. Everything was very clean, a generous gift bag awaits you, and the setting is beautiful. A doe and fawn wandered nearby as we ate dinner outside one night. I highly recommend Yak Ridge!

  • Perfect spot for exploring the Black Hills for our familyof 5. Cabin was impeccably clean, well furnished/stocked, and the hosts were so accommodating and quick to respond. The tour of their farm was a highlight of our stay. Kids also spent hours playing on the hillside behind the cabin. The location is convenient to all the attractions in the area but tucked away from main roads. I would 100% stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling the area.
