Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family has been coming here annually for so many years, we feel as if Timber Ridge Lodge is our vacation home. Thank you for taking such good care of this special place. We expect to spend many more family gatherings here. Staying anywhere else just wouldn't do. This little valley is so scenic - a little bit of heaven.

Happy New Year!

  • 5 of 5

Ringing in the New Year with family at the Timber Ridge Lodge will be a cherished memory for all of us. The Lodge is perfect for a large group. Plenty of space to spread out. We were all amazed at the way it was furnished. The Keurig was a hit for everyone. Hot chocolate for the children and flavored coffees were a treat to warm us up after playing in the beautiful snow. Hill City is a short drive for any forgotten items. We would certainly do this again.

Third Thanksgiving Family Reunion at Timber Ridge Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed another wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at Timber Ridge Lodge. The place was amazing and had plenty of room for all of us. We enjoyed the beautiful views, spacious living areas, and big, clean bedrooms. Hill City is truly the heart of the hills and made it easy to get to lots of activities in the Black Hills. We will be back again in two years!

Wonderful setting. Plenty of room for our multi-generational family vacation. Kids loved playing by the creek. Adults enjoyed siting on the deck. Close to Hill City and the sights of the Black Hills.
