Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend Skye Lodge to anyone! We stayed over the Christmas holiday and the memory is made greater by staying here. Greg as a host is unbeatable. He meets you at the main road, guides you up to the cabin (an adventure itself in the winter) and immediately gives you a tour of the cabin as well as recommendations on where to go and what to see. Truly fantastic guy! The Cabin itself is perfect; very clean and comfortable. As good as the pictures are, they do not do it justice. The scenery is breathtaking, especially covered in snow. We've told all our friends about thsi wonderful place and are looking forward to visiting again in the future. 10 stars out of 5

Beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

Skye Lodge is gorgeous!! Great area, beautifully decorated, wonderful views. It has everything you may want or need. It was a neat place to stay, compared to Spearfish Lodge, where we normally stay. Greg was very friendly and helpful. TV is Netflix only and internet based,(Pandora also), so if there are internet problems, don't plan on watching any TV. (we like to relax in front of the TV after supper). There are no curtains on the windows, so unless you like to get up when the sunrises, bring along an eye mask. But...the view is worth it, when you wake up. :)

The place, the view!

  • 5 of 5

GREAT location and great views of the canyon! Owner lives on property and very accommodating! The apartment is truly a luxury apartment, with all amenities, everything very well done, decorated, furnished, etc. Location is 4 miles from south end of Spearfish Canyon. about 20 minutes to Spearfish or 20 from Deadwood.

The apartment does not have traditional Air Conditioning, but unless it's 100 degrees, you won't need it. Owner has done a very creative way of pulling cool air into the apartment from a rift in the rock wall, works well... open windows at night, and if it is hot during the day, close them and turn on the duct that pulls in the cool air.

The lane/road to the apartment is rock and gravel and very steep in a couple of spots. Almost any car could make it up the drive, but if you're driving a corvette or a motorcycle, you won't like it. I was in a small sports car and the traction indicator came on several times every time I went up the road. It's not dangerous, just rough and steep in a couple of spots.

I would stay there again!

This is a great place to stay in the Black Hills.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at this place and We loved it. Spearfish Canyon is a beautiful place and this property is right in the canyon. The only person We saw at the property was Our host Greg, this is a quiet and peaceful place to stay. Greg was a great host. All You need to bring with You is some food and drink. There is a nice kitchen with all You will need, even a dishwasher. The property is near the towns of Spearfish, Cheyenne Crossing, Lead, Deadwood. Other attractions in the area are to the south, about 1 hour drive( Mount Rushmore etc.) If You are a city dweller as I am, keep in mind that the distances on Your map do not seem all that great, but, You will be driving in the hills and the roads are not straight or flat. It takes a little time to get where You are going, but the view out the windshield is something. Also, cell service and gps are unreliable so bring a good map!
