    Peaceful setting Our first family vacation to the Black Hills was made perfect with finding a cabin at Yak Ridge. So clean and comfortable. Our family enjoyed cooking s’mores at the fire pit and eating a dinner on the porch. The cabin has everything we needed to get away and enjoy our stay. Julie was an amazing host and we highly recommend Yak Ridge!

    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 for a small family Julie made everything extremely easy. We were able to check in early and everything was clean and neat. There was even some fresh fruit waiting for us when we arrived. Cabin is well equipped and was perfect for us. Would highly recommend!

  • Very relaxing The cabin is located in a relaxing forest of mixed pine and hardwoods. Deer are around the cabin as was a chipmunk. The cabin is well stocked and suited for a max of five people if one does not mind the couch.

    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.

  • The cabins are conveniently located to area attractions but far enough away from the main highway to allow for privacy and quiet. Our cabin was spotless and well furnished both with necessities and unexpected bonuses. We were there for four nights, and would have liked to have stayed for four more.

    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.

    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.

    WORRY FREE The location is convenient to area attractions, only one-half of a mile from the highway, providing both privacy and easy access. The cabin was clean, and had all expected amenities and then some. Julie was responsive to our requests regarding information and provided helpful insight. We were 100% satisfied with our four nights there but, disappointed that we did not have a few more.

    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.

  • 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.

    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!
