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!

Comfort, charm, and natural beauty

  • 5 of 5

Spearfish Canyon is a must see. Love all of the Black Hills area and this is a gem within it. The lodge is charming with all sorts of interesting personal touches. Greg has a genuine eye for detail. Every basic need (and then some) was provided for. I had asked in advance about certain kitchen items. He said that all I requested was already there except a teapot. When we arrived a teapot was on the stove. Could not have been more comfortable with 3 of us there. There is a queen bed and a double. It would be tight for more than 3. There is plenty to do nearby. I would check out the restaurant and gift shop at Cheyenne Crossing. It is really close and offers good food and atmosphere. Cannot imagine anything to complain about a stay here!!
