What Our Guests Say…

  • Getaway Weekend Our cottage was exactly what we wanted....a chance to getaway from home but try to social distance with COVID-19. Quiet and private but yet a few miles away so much to go do and see. Great location! Only regret was we didn’t make it to the Farmstead—hope to next time!

    I highly recommend Yak Ridge!! It's the perfect balance of camping and outdoor that my husband and 2 sons love but with the comfort and cleanliness that this mama really appreciates! The owner is quick to respond and we can't wait to return to yak ridge again!!

    Stay here, it’s perfect This property is the perfect, most cozy getaway. While Julie goes above and beyond to provide extras to make your stay even better, the cabins are centrally located to most attractions. The cabin was in pristine condition, and Julie was always quick with her communication. Honestly this was the best VRBO I have ever stayed at. We will be back!!! Thanks for everything Julie!!!

    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.

  • Great cabin My daughter and I stayed here for two nights. We loved the cabin. It had everything we needed to be comfortable and is stylishly decorated. I think there may be some poison ivy close by but other than this it was perfect. I would definitely stay here again.

    Amazing place This was an incredible cabin. We have never been to such a clean place, and the little perks and details make it even more special. Julie takes the time to make certain that guests don’t feel like strangers. We were grateful that she did so.

    Great Place, Great Time! We stayed in Cabin 4 from May 17-23 and brought everything we needed to still practice social distancing and away from restaurants and the like. Cabin was in a wonder location to to anywhere in the Black Hills. The cabin was beautifully arranged, decorated and appointed with everything you needed for a week stay. After long days of hiking we enjoyed just sitting outside and using the grill. Julie was great to work with and the fresh farm eggs and coffee was the best. Will definitely tell other and stay here again.
