Overall it was a very nice and clean hotel. The room was in a great spot overlooking the lake and every night we had deer in the yard. If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Rapid City this is a great place to stay. Prices were reasonable.

We stayed in cabin 30 last week in August for 3 days and were extremely disappointed. The room reeked of strong cigarette smoke (this was supposed to be a nonsmoking room) and mold and mildew. The smell hit us hard as soon as we opened the door. The decor is dark brown walls in the tiny space, no closet or...

Stayed in one of their motel rooms 2 nights in August, 2013. Beautiful view of the lake out the front window of the motel room. A very quiet and clean place. Place was built many years ago, but appears to have been well-maintained over the years even if room furnishings look dated. Staff was helpful with any questions we had....

We stayed in a hotel room 1st and then moved to a cabin when others joined our group for the Rally. The staff was very accommodating. They offered wine tasing 3 different nights and a free meal during the middle of the rally. They had free ice available and free coffee every morning. We didn't use the pool or paddle...

The pictures are not accurate, the large lodge looking building has nothing to do with the cabins, the cabins were outdated, tub had mold, they say wine tasting, where? The office staff acted like you were bothering them and when checking out, the girl did not ask about the stay but was more preoccupied with her computer. Did you know...

July 2013 We stayed in the large two bedroom cabin. It was large, very clean and up to date. The staff was very helpful. It's next to a beautiful park. The outdoor pool was the smallest pool I've ever seen, but the kids still had fun in it! The cabin was well stocked with towels & even extra supplies that...

Stayed in the small cabin which was perfect for two people. There were some small maintenance issues with the front door and the gas grill but staff was very accommodating and responsive.
