Warm, wonderful host. Gorgeous property. Very private. Perfect for us. We had everything we needed (and more) at this amazing property in the most beautiful place in Spearfish Canyon. We will definitely be back.

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!
