5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

This was our first experience with a bed & breakfast. It was fantastic. We stayed in August 2011 to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. As mentioned before, Dan & Nancy are great hosts & do know the area well. They were happy to furnish some special essentials when we asked. Their establishment is new. Much thought has been given to its design. They are still working on landscaping. The plan looks wonderful. There is a beautiful lake near by. Delicious breakfasts are served. The couple researched the best "on demand" coffee system! Yes, it's pricey, but we found it comparable. Remember, they are on Mountain Time.

Room Tip: Suite 5 looks into gorgeous backyard. Outdoor balcony off the room. Great 2 person jacuzzi tub.

Don't hesitate to stay here. It's a little out of the way, but not too much. Everything is pretty much brand new, squeaky clean, breakfasts are amazing. Make sure your hungry. Dan and Nancy are great hosts and can lead your toward interesting exploring. Lot's more to do besides Mt Rushmore. One caution, there are 3 floors, so don't stay on the top floor unless you can handle the stairs. We stayed in suite 8, top floor, the room is huge, the bed is comfy and there is a jacuzzi that fills from the ceiling. Bathroom is nicely equipped. AC or heat is for the whole house so individual adjustments are not possible.Also, robes would be a nice touch. Be aware that most of the tourist type attractions closed in mid October for the winter. We enjoyed the christmas store nearby where you can find unique items.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are probably great!

We stayed here for 5 nights in September, 2011. Summer Creek Inn is a very special place. It is a gorgeous property with beautiful suites. Nancy & Dan are gracious hosts and will do anything to make your stay memorable. They know the area so well and can plan a perfect and delightful day for you. The breakfast is "to die for". Summer Creek Inn is the only place to stay in the Black Hills as all the sights are close by. You will love it!

We stayed at Summer Creek for 5 nights last July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Given the dearth of luxury accommodations in the Black Hills area we didn't expect much despite the great reviews we had read. Summer Creek not only exceeded our expectations, it is by far the nicest bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in! The accommodations are lovely, new and spacious and the hospitality was gracious and generous. I had a medical dietary restriction and Nancy and Daniel went above and beyond to try to ensure that my needs were accommodated. The food was amazing, gourmet quality breakfasts: soufflés, frittatas, omelets - they did it all. The perfect place to unwind and luxuriate after a long day of touring and hiking. We can't recommend this inn enough.

We stayed at the Summer Creek Inn for three days while visiting the Black Hills area. Prior to making reservations it was noted that it was ranked number one of B&B's in Rapid City and after staying there it was very apparent why this inn receives such praise. First it is the only B&B that I've stayed in thru the years that was specifically built for a B&B. The results reflect spacious bathrooms and bedrooms with tasteful furnishings.It has a movie/media room, pool table, Hot tub, fireplaces in the rooms and attention to detail is the standard. It is conventionality located and the innkeepers Nancy and Daniel were gracious, knowledgeable, and made an effort to insure our visit was enjoyable. We certainly would recommend this inn.
