Recent Black Hills property reviews

  • Happy Renters

    "We had a great experience with the family that owns this home. They were responsive, flexable and went out of their way to make sure we had a good experience in their home. The furnishings were not as pictured, but updated and nicer than I expected. Kitchen and dining area fit the needs of our 8 person group. Beds were comfortable and clean. Great location for visitors who are in the area to sightsee. Positive experience!"

  • Family Vacation 2014

    "Our family selected the Dreamcatcher as lodging for our first-ever family vacation, and we had a wonderful experience. With four families, and five children ranging from four and fourteen, the house provided plenty of space for everyone. The property has a large yard in the back, and the children spent a lot of time exploring the small pond and climbing on the rocks. As we ate all of our morning and evening meals at the house, and packed lunches for our day trips, we especially appreciated the large, open, and well-equipped kitchen. Grilling out and eating on the back deck was also quite enjoyable. The local contact was friendly and accommodating, and quickly responded to a small request. All in all, I would certainly recommend this property to friends and family."

  • Unplug in Nature's Bountiful Scenery and Lovingly Tended Accomodations

    "Our family was fortunate to find Newton Fork Ranch and all its pristine splendor. We stayed for 3 nights, 4 days and found the entire visit to be extremely pleasant. We stayed in Granny's Ranch House, the original ranch home built by the owner's grandparents in 1911. The house has been lovingly restored and is full of gleaming wood, period pieces (love the original cookstove and water pump!) and very comfortable furniture. We stayed out of restaurants almost entirely, as the ranch house is completely outfitted with quality kitchen implements. This helped our budget and family connections, alike. Sitting around the picnic table and watching the bubbling brook for trout in the morning, sitting around the large and lovely dining table in the evening-- it really was a good, truly relaxing and peaceful time. You won't find wi-fi and television at the ranch. This is a place to unplug and have a quality, carefree vacation with a loved one, friends or family. The sheer beauty of the place is enough to keep you lingering, watching for deer, pheasants and other wildlife who make their home in the ridged woods on the property. However, you have access to the heart of Hill City just a 1/2 mile down the road and the ranch property opens onto a good bike trail that will take you along the old railroad. (You'll hear the steam whistle of the historic 1880 steam engine in the distance during your stay.) My family thanks Linda, Marianne and everyone who keeps Newton Fork Ranch going. We wouldn't change a thing! PS. We discovered a lack of recycling receptacles throughout South Dakota. Plan ahead to do your own recycling or maybe ask at the ranch. ? We didn't address this and just took care of it ourselves but if there is an option, I'm guessing Linda will know about it. She is a knowledgable, gracious host."

Black Hills Travel Tips

Lose Your Heart to the Black Hills of Dakota

Two words sum up the Black Hills region of South Dakota--awe inspiring! The abundance of wide open space, breathtaking views and fascinating history, combine with the many options for day trips and year-round activities, making this place a wonderful vacation location. Visitors to Black Hills cabins may find the regional airport at Rapid City a convenient option. However, the region provides excellent roads with interstates such as I-90 and many state highways.

The Black Hills area has long, hot, dry summers and winters with lots of great snow for a variety of winter sports and activities.

The Black Hills are Full of Awe-Inspiring Scenery

Whatever time of year, the Black Hills offer endless activities along with the awe-inspiring scenery. Whether it’s the hiking, biking, golf, climbing, ATV tours, or hunting, it is all here, right outside the doorsteps of Black Hills vacation rentals. During winter, come for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and much more.

Whenever visitors come, it is the scenery that makes the Black Hills special. From visiting Mount Rushmore, the Devils Tower, forests, Sylvan Lake and the Badlands National Park to seeing the still-in-construction Crazy Horse Monument, it is a region of breathtaking beauty. In Custer State Park, spend a morning hiking, then stop for a picnic and watch the buffalo as they roam across their land. You can also see prairie dogs at play and wild horses.

While visitors enjoy the incredible activities and scenery that surrounds them, there is another not-to-be-missed experience beneath their feet. This region is rich in caves to explore, with equally incredible sights, such as Thunderhead Underground falls where an enormous subterranean waterfall awaits the adventurous visitor.

The Black Hills Area for a Home Where the Buffalo Roam

Black Hills vacation rentals in towns here are part of American history. The main city is Rapid City which is an excellent base for trout fishing. It is also a great place to visit the Dinosaur Park where prehistoric creatures are scattered along the skyline. Dating from 1875 and surrounded by thick Ponderosa Pine forests, Custer City is the oldest city in the region. This city is perfect as a starting point for mountain bikers and hikers to access the trails in Custer State Park. The famous city of Deadwood is also a national historic landmark, with its historic buildings, saloons and museums. Here, the western tradition of shoot-outs still remains, although now it is just for show. While here, visit the graves of the Wild West heroes such as Wild Bill and Calamity Jane at Mount Moriah Cemetery and pan for gold at one of the local mines.

Homes Where the Kids can be Cowboys

These Black Hills lodging options are all about quality. Whether visitors are seeking a town base or one out in the heart of the wilderness, you can find it here. Whether it is a large property with a bunkhouse for the kids or a small, cozy romantic hideaway, visitors will find a great selection of fantastic properties. Each is unique and not just equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay, but much more. Owners go more than the extra mile to ensure that visitors find luxurious surroundings to make their vacations extra special. Many welcome dogs. Even visitors seeking to bring their horses on vacation will find a variety of rentals come with stabling capabilities.
