Hisega Lodge is tops

5 on June 10, 2015

We stayed here in early June and had a wonderful time. The lodge is exactly what you want in the Black Hills -- warm, inviting, good food and relaxing.

Rustic, Charming, Wonderful Hisega Lodge!!

4.8 on June 05, 2015

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.

Wonderful, relaxing at Hisega Lodge

4.8 on October 28, 2014

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

New Mexico meets Hisega, South Dakota!

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.

Family Vacation to Mt. Rushmore and surrounding areas

5 on July 18, 2014

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

Really Great Historic House!

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.

Four Glorious Nights at Hisega Lodge

4.4 on July 02, 2014

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

Simply Amazing!

5 on June 04, 2014

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!

Comfy, peaceful, gourmet breakfasts

4.8 on March 24, 2014

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!
