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. Magnificant! Mike and Marianne - Bradenton, Florida
Wow!! What a nice experience. My wife and I stayed at Peregrine Point Bed and Breakfast for four nights in June 2014. When we arrived we were welcomed by the Hosts and immediately made to feel like we were old friends. All of the rooms have their own door opening to the deck. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the variety of birds and other wildlife that inhabit the property. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. It is worth staying here just to be able to enjoy the Gourmet Breakfast. The Hosts have two house dogs and a cat, but they are not allowed downstairs where the guest rooms are located. The only issue would be if you have allergies.
We were the lucky family to be the first guests in the Robinson Suite. The Suite is a 2 bedroom 2 bath spacious retreat with a private porch and fully stocked kitchen. We had spent 2 days in the Deadwood area and I was so excited that when we arrived at Hisega we had all the luxuries of home, including a wash and dryer! The master bedroom is very spacious with a wall of windows that, when opened, bring the beautiful sound of the creek and the Black Hills breeze right into your room. What a wonderful way to fall asleep! The kitchen and den are also quite spacious and have everything you need. Carol's breakfasts are nothing less than 5 star! Coming from New Orleans it is hard for food to compare, but Carol did just that! Her breakfasts could easily be served in the fine restaurants in any city. She was also happy to accommodate my 10 year old son! Hisega Lodge is the perfect retreat for anyone staying in the Black Hills. We found it easy to get to all the wonderful tourist locations, but it was tucked away to give you the tranquility you need to decompress in the mornings and evenings. We found the perfect start to the day was a stroll along the river and we ended the day with a glass of wine on the porch. Simply Perfect!
We stayed in the lodge in mid-March. It was very peaceful and nearly empty. It's a great time to see the Black Hills, no crowds and warm weather. The Inn is very quaint and cozy. There is a blazing fireplace and comfy chairs to sit in at the end of the day. The breakfasts are just plainly incredible. Carol is a fantastic cook. I would love to comeback in late April or the fall to enjoy the expansive porch overlooking the stream. Hisega is conveniently close to colorful restaurants with very good food, Carol has great recommendations for eating out. It's in a nice location near the parks for easy sightseeing and close to Rapid City and the excellent downtown restaurants and wineries and breweries. I would love to come back again.
I could not have asked for anything better! Carol and Kenn are spectacular hosts. Not only were they great at making sure we had everything we needed, they were wonderful to talk to. They had amazing advice on local eateries and activities and they never made any of our questions feel like they were an inconvenience. It truly felt like a home away from home. The rooms were very accommodating and perfect for a trip for two. Breakfasts were outstanding! They were also accommodating in that they supplied a guest refrigerator and microwave so we could store or reheat anything we brought with us. I can guarantee that I will be returning for another getaway!
My sisters and I spent 3 nights at the Lodge. It was a delightful time and couldn't have been better. Carol is absolutely wonderful and so are the girls who work there. Staying there is complete comfort in a rustic lodge. I left my window open every night so I could hear Rapid Creek. Heavenly. It is well located for a variety of Black Hills day trips and it was fun to hear about everyone's adventures at breakfast the next morning.
Eileen and Warren are wonderful hosts. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious. Our hosts were great with suggestions on where to eat, things to do, and driving directions. It was great to come back each evening to such a quiet relaxing place. Our only small issue was that wifi was spotty, but sometimes being unconnected is a good thing. Eileen's gift of homemade chokecherry jelly was an extra nice touch. Would highly recommend.
I love rustic lodges so when I found the Hisega, I was pretty happy. When we drove into the property I was still pleased, as it overlooked a small, rushing stream and was in a picturesque setting. As Kenn showed us to our rooms, he explained a bit about the place and let us know about the lodge and breakfast, etc. He also gave us a great recommendation for dinner. My sister-in-law was arriving later, and Kenn and Carol had left her notes on both the front and back doors in case they were gone or retired to bed. I thought this was very thoughtful. The room we had (104) faced the river, so the sounds were wonderful. Though the room itself was small, it was quite charming and had a very comfortable bed with luxurious linens that smelled so fresh. A nice touch was homemade soap. We spent a good deal of time in Adirondacks on the 2nd floor wraparound porch. Hopefully our friends and we did not disturb the other guests. Coffee was ready by 6 and a delicious breakfast including homemade muffins, juice, fruit, salad and quiche was served community style at 8:30. Carol was a soft-spoken, generous hostess who made me feel like an old friend. We sure hope to return here soon. It would make a lovely place for a family reunion.
I just wanted to say our stay at the Sweetgrass Bed and Breakfast was fantastic. Shari and Lee are wonderful people. Lee even kept the restaurant open for us one night so we enjoy one of his prepared fantastic meals. The rooms were much more then the photos show. It was truly the best vacation I have ever had.
We had the wonderful opportunity to share our vacation during the Sturgis motorcycle rally with Carol and Kenn at the Hisega Lodge. Our first time to stay here (but our 6th trip out) and we have found a home away from home at the lodge. Hisega was in a great location, away from the hustle and bustle of the day. Quiet and cool at night. Slept great and woke to some wonderful coffee in the main room with a breakfast to die for each morning. We met some wonderful friends and fellow riders during our stay from all over the US along with South Africa, Canada, Scotland, Germany and France. Quite an eclectic group and the Hisega lodge brought us all together. Did I mention the staff? Great folks all and Carol and Kenn were top notch hosts. I would not hesitate to recommend Hisega to anyone wanting a great stay for their vacation in the Black Hills of SD. Howard and Vickie
We have been traveling together for thirty years and always avoided B&Bs. If we ever go back to South Dakota we will be staying at Sweetgrass. Shari & Lee are wonderful hosts. She makes a great breakfast and he has different specials every night next door for dinner. The rooms are recently remodeled and very clean. The whirlpool tub was nice after being on motorcycle all day. B. Mettler
It was my wife and mine's first experience with a B&B, as well as our honeymoon, and we could not have asked for anything better. The food was outstanding, the rooms were clean, roomy, and well decorated. Two of the nicest people you will ever meet, it feels like your at home.
Despite having grown up in Sturgis and Rapid City, we are never fully prepared for the unparalleled beauty of the Paha Sapa (loosely translated from the Lakotah language as the "Black Hills"). Peregrine Pointe Place offers majestic views! It's fun to hike through the hills, see the wildlife, or simply enjoy the comfortable outdoor seating. This home is inviting and well-appointed; we loved our room and the well stocked library! Hosts, Eileen and Warren, are welcoming and excited to share information about attractions and upcoming events. All the visitors were delightful, genuinely nice, fun-loving people. One guest, a gifted musician, was persuaded to entertain us with piano and harp selections! An exquisite end to a beautiful day! Finally, the food is superb, the best we've enjoyed at a B&B! Each day there is a beautifully prepared hot entrée with delectable, homemade side choices, and an array of cereals and beverages. Snacks are on hand all day and careful attention is given to guests with food allergies or specific needs. This was a splendid experience, and we've already made plans for our next visit! We encourage anyone traveling through the Black Hills to treat themselves to a stay at Peregrine Pointe Place! Art and Alexis Piehl Sidney, Nebraska
We spent 3 nights at this beautiful B&B. The hosts made us feel very welcome, and were very personable and helpful with suggestions as to things to see in the area and restaurants for dinner. The rooms had wide expanses of windows (with black-out shades), and opened onto a large deck and the woods in the back. There were wild turkeys outside our window, and we saw many deer, and even a cow and her calf on the road! This is a great place to stay, and we would love to go back.
Eileen and Warren were great hosts....had plenty of snacks on hand to munch on and a refrigerator full of water.....would have liked to had a softer bed and the hot water seemed lacking....loved the food and the laid back atmosphere....gorgeous place to stay and the food was amazing!!!! Thank you Eileen and Warren for letting us stay with you for a couple of evenings!!!
A magnificent building at a beautiful location, great room and a warm welcome with homemade cookies, what more do you need. We stayed with the family, my wife and two kids 3 and 11 years old, at Hisega Lodge for 3 nights. A perfect location to discover the Black Hills. We had such a great time. The kids loved to play outside where the creek flows right in front of our room while we watched them from the porch. Every morning a surprise-gourmet-breakfast with extremely good coffee to start the day. Good food and nice people a great Black Hills experience and we definitely will try to come back.
3 friends (Phil.,SF and LA) had a great experience at this Lodge. Innkeepers Carol and Ken were great as was the "family like" staff. Gourmet breakfast served each morning with a flair. Our 2-bed & 2-bath suite was the best. One friend had a lodge room which was a little small but comfortable. Greta spot for mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, the Badlands and Fly Fishing with a guide from Dakota Angler and Outfitter.
We stayed here for a wedding. It was awesome. The owners directed us to a nearby restaurant where we had an incredible meal... it was filet mignon, sides and this epic beer cheese soup (they wouldn't share the recipe!) and it cost a fraction of what this meal would have cost back home... This is gorgeous country. Sort of amazing. Bring allergy meds, if you're like me, though. :) They get bonus points for their old cat, who is probably not with them anymore... (this would gross some of you out) the little dude was/is deaf, and an outdoor cat. We sat down for breakfast and he came walking up to me and gave me a chipmonk. The owners were mortified, but my whole group was cat people, so this was a high honor. :) I would definitely stay here again if I ended up back in Rapid City. Fun place, very clean (the chipmonk incident was out on the huge back deck where we had breakfast! I witnessed no fresh carcasses indoors!) and very much NOT like a hotel.
We stayed at this lovely b&b by Mt Rushmore over Memorial Day weekend. It was very much off the beaten path but it was beautiful. It was surrounded by trees and had cats running around (I happen to love cats so this was a plus for me). The room was beautiful, as was the bathroom. They also had games and a ping pong table that were available to be played. The breakfast was divine. They made frittata for us, and we also had yogurt, fruit, meat, cheese, and bread.
A friend and I traveled to South Dakota to tour various parks and monuments and searched for a B&B in which to stay. The reviews for Hisega Lodge were outstanding, thus we gave it a try...we were not disappointed. The owners, Carol and Ken, were very inviting and shared much information about sites to see. Our accommodations were quite nice, definitely a rustic charm to our room and the Lodge. As there was a chill in the air upon our arrival, it was a pleasure to sit by the fireplace in the lodge where a roaring fire warmed the room. We stayed two night, thus experienced two of Carol's exquisite meals. The staff, too, were very friendly. Our stay was truly delightful and I would wholeheartedly suggest this B&B to anyone traveling to the Black Hills of Rapid City. Denise from Plymouth, Michigan
This B&B is one of the best I've stayed in. Both Eileen and Warren were very laid back and welcoming. You have a private entrance into the house from the second floor. The breakfasts were fabulous with plenty of food to choose from! I would definately stay here again and hopefully will!
Don't be fooled by the address—this is a country retreat, and the country is beautiful. The inn is very conveniently located for visiting the Black Hills attractions, which I greatly enjoyed. Wildlife in the area is abundant. I left with a much-enhanced appreciation of what South Dakota has to offer. The innkeepers are friendly and interesting. My visit was great.
