28 years in the tourism/hospitality industry in the Black Hills. Built this house after finding this amazing sight.
One of the most amazing views, I have ever seen.
Amazing views, quiet, night stars, luxury accommodation, wildlife, did I mention the view?
Greg has a gem of a home in Spearfish Canyon. The apartment is nicely furnished/decorated with everything needed to relax after a day of hiking/biking. The bed was comfortable, shower large and great water pressure. We would have loved to stay longer, and we definitely want to return. Greg is a gracious host. Spearfish Canyon is one of the most beautiful places in the Black Hills!
Great start to the stay with Greg meeting us near the road and giving us an immediate tour of the apartment and tips about the area.
Excellent location for hiking near 2 waterfalls. 76 trails provides a more difficult hike and great view. Great location for visiting Deadwood. Apartment had plenty of room for 2 adults and had a spare bed. Apartment was very clean and looked even better in person than it did in pictures. Views were great from large windows in living room. If you are looking to unplug from phones/technology/work calls/email this is your place.
Prepare yourself for the drive to the apartment. Steep winding/hills and can be slippery if wet.
My wife and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
We would recommend to friends and family without question. The owner is personable and informative with knowledge of black hills area and beyond. A great rental with all quality furnishing. Wood floors throughout. Sofas, chairs, dressers and beds are all top quality. Modern bathroom with a large lit walk-in shower with bench. Bedding is cool and comfortable; towels provided are plush quality. New cabinets, sink and appliances in kitchen. State of the art laundry. Well decorated theme. Deck has modern rattan cushioned love seat and wooden slat chairs, equipped with a newer infrared charbroil patio grill. (Clean) No mosquitos! There are a couple of nice hiking sticks provided at the entrance. Nothing in this rental is re-purposed from other properties.
The apartment cools down to 60's in minutes at sunset with open windows providing a wonderful open canyon air sleep experience, daytime cooling is piped in cool air from an ice cave behind the property. Very comfortable. It was a nice to return to the rental after a 92 degree day. In house entertainment is provided via flat screen and laptop on site with Pandora and Netflix. We connected a tablet via HDMI for additional sources. Rental pics are highly accurate.
The reasonably priced restaurant 1/4 mile down the road is a plus. We enjoyed a dinner and breakfast here. (Large portions, just a slight bit too much to finish. I would consider split plates if wanting to enjoy one of their very delicious looking desserts.)
14a is a scenic route from downtown Spearfish to Lead with 2 waterfalls and a crystal clear stream along the entire drive. Spectacular views at every turn.
Google satellite maps provided exact location - recommended. May have been very easy to drive right by small road leading to home. OnStar is accurate for locating property.
We had a fantastic time in South Dakota. The hiking and mountain bike trails were unbelievable! Greg is a great host~helpful without being intrusive. Loved the apartment. It was super clean and even stocked with a few little extras such as coffee beans/grinder, pasta,popcorn, etc.. We were a little surprised to find no AC and no cable, but it turns out we really didn't miss either one. The road to get up to the house is steep with gravel but after a couple of times up and down, we got used to the climb(we drove a big conversion van....a smaller vehicle would have no problem at all). I highly recommend Skye Lodge to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay.
The accommodations were all that were needed for the week's stay in this amazing location. Although the Black Hills have many tourist attractions, a powerful cultural and historical connection to Native peoples and U.S. history, Spearfish Canyon and the many trails, waterfalls, and natural beauty was the highlight of our week's vacation. If being physical and fully enjoying a spectacular outdoor experience is a vacationer's goal, this property is an ideal, comfortable homebase!
We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Spearfish Canyon Skye Lodge and can't think of one single thing we would recommend Greg to change. The accommodations to the view were spectacular. As a matter of fact, while looking out at the canyon, a bald eagle was soaring above the treetops, providing an almost spiritual feeling. We absolutely will return!
