Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Powder House Lodge. Cabin was spacious and clean. Location was very convenient to Mt Rushmore but removed from downtown noise and traffic. On-site restaurant provide excellent choices, delicious food, and great service. Would definitely return and recommend to friends and relatives.
Their dining room is one of the best in the Hills, to my way of thinking....even though this may be an unusual comment, the toilet in the bathroom in the king cabin was the first to be a higher commode than in any other hotel room we stayed in over our 4 week driving trip. Very much appreciated! The room was great, and a wonderful new bed was in the room. No heater in the room, but that was fine!
It was the perfect place. Minutes from all the sites we wanted to visit. Cozy,clean, and a five star restaurant. I would definitely stay here again. I highly recommend the Powderhouse. We stayed with my 85 year young mom and she loved it as well.
We stayed for 5 nights with Amie recently, using her B & B as 'home base' while we explored SD and WY. Wonderful place, and a wonderful hostess! We stayed in the Molly Brown room - - a large, comfortable room which Amie had obviously decorated with a lot of thought and care. The whole house is a great combination of homey and showpiece, antiques and region specific decor are used throughout. Location is in a residential neighborhood just a short drive or walk from the downtown historic/business district and only about an hour or less from most major attractions (Mt. Rushmore, Badlands National Park, etc.) in the region. Amie makes breakfast a grand affair - - the were full and delicious with a gourmet flair. If you are normally a cup of coffee and piece of toast breakfast person you may want to let her know. I love a big breakfast (and am a big eater in general...), and nearly always skipped lunch because I was still full from the morning meal. Let Amie know what you like. She is very open to tailoring to a person's individual tastes and preferences. I feel like we got to know Amie during our lengthy stay. She is a wonderfully chatty lady, is well traveled and obviously puts a great deal of thought and energy into her business and in trying to determine what would make her guests happy. I recommend her B&B without hesitation, especially for a couple looking for a getaway.
We ended up staying an extra night we were so impressed. For the same price as one of the creepy and small hotel rooms in town we had our own cabin with a nice size mini- fridge and our neighbors said they were able to rent a grill for super cheap. Best part is I could have my animals for a small fee. Don't like dogs??? It's okay because those with pets had their own section. I would definitely go back!
The cabin we stayed in at the Powder House Lodge was clean, private and all around the best decision we made during our trip to South Dakota..we had beautiful sunrises and young deer to watch from our porch swing...the beds were very comfortable and the kitchenette useful...the pool was within walking distance and the restaurant has wonderful food on their full menu, we ate breakfast, lunch and supper there during our stay...the staff was very courteous and helpful...we would stay at Powder House again and have recommended it to family and friends!
This was such a nice surprise. Our cabin offered privacy and was very cozy. The restaurant was wonderful for both breakfast and dinner! The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. It was a truly enjoyable stay and we would most definitely like to return.
We live in our own log home so this just seem to be the natural thing to do. Great prices great accommodation's outstanding food and fantastic service. If your headed to the Black Hills and Rushmore and want to be one with nature this is the place to stay!
Just what we expected. A cozy cabin, just minutes from Mt. Rushmore. Had a really good Prime Rib for dinner. Cooked perfect, really tender, seasoned just right. Good au jus, not over salted like some places. veggie sides cooked just rigt too. Probably the best prime rib i've ever had and overall a dinner I'll remember.
Powder House Lodge was a great place to stay while we were visiting Mount Rushmore. The area was quiet, clean and easy to locate. We didn't eat at the restaurant and we were only there less than 24 hours but it definitely served its purpose!
staying here exceeded my expectations. The only thing I would change is that I wish I would have stayed here another night. The cabins were very cute and clean. We were coming from Michigan and running a little late to check in. They told us they would just put the key on the door. When we got there, there was still someone there to greet us though! Loved our stay here!
Hisega Lodge is a very charming, rustic, cozy place with so much history to it. Carol and Ken were fabulous hosts, so warm and friendly; they made us feel so welcome. After a day of touring, Hisega Lodge is a place to unwind. There is a large room in the main area with a huge fireplace where guests can conglomerate and converse and share the experiences of the day. It snowed the first day we came, the fireplace kept us warm and cozy. Carol is a wonderful chef, she prepared fabulous gourmet breakfast everyday (and don't ever miss it if you stay at the lodge). Visit So Dakota and make sure to stay at Hisega Lodge. You will enjoy the wonders and natural beauty of the surrounding area, the Black Hills, Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Badlands, Jewel Cave, Mammoth Site, Devils Tower, etc. Stayed with a group (15 of us, from Class '61 THS mini-Reunion) from May 19-26. We LOVED our stay and hope to come back soon.
The house is decorated in antiques and feels cozy. The Breakfasts were wonderful as were the snacks provided. The owner was friendly and helpful in sugestions as to the best sites to visit on our short visit to the Black Hills
This has got to be one of the most wonderful and relaxing vacations that my wife and I have taken over the years. Carol met us in the parking area showed us around and then to our room. The rooms are not large but very comfortable for sleeping. We spent 6 nights in the Trout room and were sad to have to leave. The breakfasts are marvelous and sustained us until 3-4 in the afternoon. It was nice to visit with others guests at breakfast and evenings next to the fireplace. We have been home a couple of weeks now and I think we are ready to go back. Carol and Kenn were great hosts and made us feel right at home. We will definitely go back. Ken and Carol Brown--Tennessee
My family and I stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay at Hisega Lodge. Carol and Kenn are fabulous host and serve the most delicious breakfast. Our cabin was clean and decorated beautifully! Our stay was very peaceful and relaxing. I would recommend Hisega Lodge without hesitation. You pay a little more but you get a Lot more! Blessings and safe travels- The Valencia Family.
Great location. Great Breakfasts and conversations in the morning. Room was spacious and quiet. We greatly enjoyed our time in the Black Hills and Sweetwater was an awesome base camp for us. Highly recommend!
This was our family's first time to this area. We chose to stay at Hisega Lodge to avoid the overly touristy areas. We are so glad we chose to stay at Hisega. Carol and Kenn are very gracious host who pay special attention to all of the details for an enjoyable vacation. Their company as well as the other guest was most enjoyable. We made several friends while we where there and look forward to keeping in touch with them. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the creek through our open windows each day was wonderful. Having a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the front porch was a favorite of our day. Breakfast was always scrumptious! Our kids enjoyed their stay as well. They said our room, the Lost Cabin, was very comfy and cozy. They loved the creek, Carol, Kenn and the neighbor's dog. If you are ever planning on being in the Rapid City/Black Hills area, I would definitely keep Hisega Lodge in mind for your stay! Hope to come back soon
One night of door wide open sleeping was not enough. Carol and Ken were great hosts. We travelled from Northern Alberta on motorcycle to SD. As our type of touring has been taking us to many B & B's. Coming south of the border never disappoints us. Thanks a lot to the US people for your all around kindness and appreciation of visitors. We will be back to spend our tourist dollars for a long time to come. Thanks again, Keith and Cheri.
We were looking for peace and solitude and that is what we found at the Hisega Lodge. Beautiful views, peaceful evenings and Carol and Kenn were warm and welcoming. We wanted a place where we could get away from the "hustle and bustle" of our everyday lives and we found it in Rapid City, South Dakota at the Hisega Lodge. I have and will continue to recommend Hisega Lodge to all my friends and family. Every night before falling off to sleep as we would listen to the sound of the creek and feel the cool, crisp, breeze on our faces; we would fall asleep thinking about what Carol would be cooking for breakfast.
