Peaceful in the canyon

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful location! Greg is a wonderful host full of information and great suggestions for restaurants. View is outstanding.

We rode motorcycles for a few days. Great place to park trailer -thank you Greg, at the bottom of the driveway.

Perfect location and time of the year (early June) for a relaxing visit out west.

Thank you Greg!

Beautiful setting in Spearfish Canyon

  • 5 of 5

Spearfish Canyon is stunning and Skye Lodge is surrounded by breathtaking views. The rental is a self contained apartment on the second floor of the home that Greg built in the canyon. The entire space is a single large room (plus bathroom and laundry closet) with spectacular windows looking out on to the canyon. The unit is very nicely furnished with high quality furnishings, tasteful art and a full kitchen. Greg was super helpful with suggestions and communications. The only downside is that we didn't find the beds (one queen, one full) comfortable for two adults as the mattresses were past their best. This was surprising as everything else is so well appointed. Other than that, it was a fantastic rental.

Clean apartment with beautiful scenery!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Skye Lodge. The apartment was very clean and well stocked with supplies. The bathroom and kitchen were very nice and well maintained. Greg was very accommodating and helpful. We thought blinds may be helpful because of the early June sunrise but everything else was perfect! Would definitely stay again. Thanks Greg!

Rates highest of all the accommodations on our 21 day road trip

  • 5 of 5

This would be where you'd want to live if you moved west. The wilderness from your window, the pleasure of a tastefully, warmly decorated, spacious studio, the convenience to anything you wanted to see or do, and a host so cordial that you are immediately comfortable and ready to cancel the rest of your reservations. This is a singularly delightful accommodation and it genuinely enhanced our entire experience. Greg Gunderson is attentive without being intrusive, knowledgeable about the area, and maintains a beautiful facility. We are very partial to VRBO's and this one ranks in our top 3 in the U.S.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this spot justice. It was wonderful. And located close to just about everything we wanted to see.

If my travels ever take me back to South Dakota, I will definitely stay here again!
