About Julie Smoragiewicz
Jim and Julie are you hosts. We are blessed to have lived in the Black Hills for more than 20 years. We raised our two sons (now grown) in the the area and together have enjoyed hiking, biking, swimming, boating, camping, fishing, hunting, rock climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, exploring, and so much more of what the Black Hills have to offer.

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Yak Ridge and hope the hike on your departing day was a success. We look forward to having you return!
Fantastic location for visiting the Black Hills area - close to everything, yet feels remote!
Nicely equipped cozy cabin, perfect for a few days stay. A selection of the board games and books more than compensated for lack of WiFi. We’re planning to stay there again!
Wonderful little cabin in the area. Close to many things. Lots of wildlife. Enjoyed our stay.
Wonderful family trip
