Can't wait to stay again!
"I am so glad that we found Patty and the Canyon Gateway Motel on VRBO! We have stayed in hotels in the area and never again, not as long as Patty is around. We stayed in room 1 which was western themed and so adorably decorated. The bed was comfy, sheets and pillows soft, lots of water pressure in the shower, great towels, little fridge and microwave, flat screen and cable, and it was quiet. We showed up in the middle of the night and our room was waiting for us with the light on. Cozy and in a great location, minutes from Spearfish, and at the north entrance of Spearfish Canyon. Patty made the stay great and was very helpful with ideas on where to head off to. We climbed Crow Peak, kayaked in Lake Pactola, and wondered around Deadwood, Sturgis, Hill City and Spearfish. I HIGHLY recommend the Bay Leaf Café to eat!! Fresh food, clean place and great staff! The rates are just unbelievable for the places location and we cannot wait to get back there with family and friends. Thanks for such a great place to stay Patty!"

"This house was perfect for our families (total of 10 people) vacationing together in Mt. Rushmore area. The sights we wanted to visit (Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park and Mammoth Site) were all within very easy driving distance.
The house is beautiful as are the surroundings. There is a lovely creek that runs through the property. The kids enjoyed exploring the house and the grounds outside. It is very quiet---there are no visible houses.
The agent who manages this property was very responsive and easy to work with.
We've rented many times from VRBO and this ranks close to, if not at the top of, our list."

"I stayed at the Nugget with my brother and his family for the 75th Sturgis rally, and had a great time! My brothers family only stayed a few nights, but they enjoyed it as much as we did! I love this place, and will definitely come back to the Nugget! Highly recommended for anyone who wants to stay in the general area! Very close to everything! This was my second experience at the Nugget, and i can't imagine staying anywhere else in that area. I can't wait to come back! Thanks Mike!!!!"

"My family (husband, myself and two daughters: 6 and 8) stayed in this cabin for three nights. I made the mistake of checking for any new reviews two days before we left for our trip. The people that stayed before us left a horrible review, and that was all I could think about on our drive out. When we did make it to our cabin, I could not have been more pleased. The cabin was very clean, and like the previous reviewers had mentioned, literally everything was provided. The only things we needed were our toothbrushes and groceries. There was a third bedroom not listed in the description which was maybe a porch at one time that had been closed in. The amount of space was amazing. You could have multiple families staying at one time and everyone would have a bed to sleep in. It rained two of the three days we were there, so the DVD player and cabin helped while we were coming up with alternative plans for the kids. The two bathrooms were great as well. The only negative thing I can think of was that there were a few mouse traps out (I was petrified my daughters would freak out and not want to stay...even though there was absolutely NO signs of mice in the cabin), but we had a 30 second conversation about not touching the traps and they never said another word about it. It really is in the perfect location if you are doing any kind of sight-seeing in the Black Hills. If we had stayed any further south or north, it would have been too long of a drive for the kids to head out for the day. We were minutes away from Custer State Park. The owner was very timely with a response whenever I had a question before our trip, and even mailed back our deposit check that is required so my husband could shred it himself. I will recommend this cabin to all of our family and friends that make the great trek to the Black Hills!"
