We just got home yesterday. We stayed in the trail side cabin. It sleeps 6 but there was just the 2 of us. It seemed like a good value for a cabin at $109 off peak. It is well appointed as far as the kitchen. Very roomy. Beautiful setting. Located 20 yards from a great hiking, biking trail goes for...

This is just my review for the trail rides as I didn't book rooms to stay at the ranch. I was all excited about getting to ride a horse for the first time. The website made it sound appealing as you would get to experience the beauty of the Black Hills National Forest. Amy, I believe her name was, was...

I booked this hotel thinking that it would be fun to stay in the country versus a chain hotel for a family vacation to SD. We stayed in a cowboy cabin. The cabin was fine. Small and no amenities (we brought our own linens) but it worked. The pool was ok. I cleaned/skimmed it each time we swam...it needed a...

Being members of a popular hotel chain, normally we choose one of their hotels, but none were in the area. I prefer a sleek and modern style and almost made that choice, but soooo glad I didn't this time. We were on a 6500 mile road trip between California and the East Coast. This was on our return home and...

We stayed at the Guest Ranch for two nights because we had reservations to go to the Circle B Chuckwagon Show and Brule Show. Location was great and easy to find. When we got there, our "Native American" cabin wasn't perfect, but staff was helpful and cleaned up what we had noticed was dirty. We had booked the chuckwagon dinner...

40 y/o father/husband: This place was just wonderful! We stayed in a camping cottage, which was a good value and easy to swing, as we had camping stuff in the car. The space was comfortable and well-maintained and in a beautiful setting. Staff were very friendly, and I really appreciated the stated mission of reconciliation between native and white culture....

We stayed here out of desperation. We hadn't really decided what to do that day, and then we were trying to figure out where to stay. I had no phone reception and we were there for the Circle B Chuckwagon Show. On a whim, I decided to see if they had anything available. They did, so we booked it. It...

We recently spent 5 days and 6 nights in one of the Native American cabins at High Country Guest Ranch which is in a great location to all the sites and attractions that we wanted to visit in SD. However, there are a few concerns/complaints. First of all one has to remember that it is a CABIN on a RANCH....

After our 5 day stay here at High country Guest Ranch we will not be coming back nor will we recommend it to anyone. This is more of a working Ranch where we do all of the work. From cleaning our own rooms with the vacuum left in each room to bagging collecting our trash to set aside in our...
