About

Elk Ridge is set on a wooded hillside, half way between Keystone and Hill City, SD a short drive away from MT. Rushmore. The drive to Elk Ridge has breath taking scenery along a winding road. During the peak season you can hear the whistle of the 1880 Train™ as it travels between the two towns. Shop at a Christmas store that is open year round or look for souvenirs,or antiques in one of the many shops in the towns Custer,Keystone or Hill City. So many of the shops carry items made by local artisians, from pottery to life size bronze statues. There is so much to do and see that at the end of your day visiting the Black Hills you can soothe your body in your private Jacuzzi tub shower combination and get a terrific night’s sleep in our featured Sleep Number™ bed. Each bedroom has DishTV™ also, so you can catch up on the events of the day and the weather. Hot rod enthusiasts as well as motorcycle riders are welcome. We have a paved driveway for smooth access and lots of parking. It is a little tight for RVs though. Garage parking for your motorcycle or hot rod. Make the Black Hills your destination, not just part of your journey. You will love it!! Open all year!

Our first B&B, and what an impression!

4.6 on September 21, 2013

My wife & I came up to visit Mt Rushmore and the area for a few days. This was the first time we'd tried a B&B, but we wanted to take the risk of having the experience. Ron & Leslie are terrific hosts. Our first day Leslie advised us well on what to do during the afternoon and where to eat. They have a great house and are nice people to sit and chat with. Breakfast was off the charts! Healthy portions and great taste! I will always compare other B&B's to theirs; a tough act to follow!!


Made us feel like family.

Just finished our week at the Elk Ridge B & B. Reading all the reviews, one comes away with the feeling these inn keepers are too good to be true. My wife and I found them to be genuine, wonderful and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them. Ron and Lesley are pleasant people, offering clean accommodations as well as offering an awesome breakfast. We called ahead and informed Lesley about our newly discovered gluten free issues, and she didn’t miss a beat. She’s a gem and he’s a character full of interesting stories. Their living room is full of artifacts, each one with its own story to be told. You decide the interactions, if it’s privacy you’re looking for, just stay in your quiet room. But we found ourselves spending time with them and found them to be great company each evening! Elk Ridge comes highly recommended by Mark and Sue F. Foxboro, MA


Best Place to Stay in South Dakota!

My husband and I just returned from 4 wonderful nights at Ron and Leslie's B&B. Everything was spectacular! My husband was nervous, at first, not having stayed in a B&B before - but was quickly put at ease. As we were leaving he said "I cant imagine staying anywhere else!" Leslie is not only an outstanding hostess, but also the best chef in SD! Highly recommend!


Great Hosts!!!

The highlight of South Dakota

4.6 on April 29, 2013

My wife and I travelled through Mount Rushmore for our vacation last week and our first B&B stay of the trip was with Elk Ridge. Ron and Leslie were so warm and welcoming. It was a great getaway. We stayed in the largest of the rooms "The Duke" for two nights. The hot tub was just what we needed after traveling on poor roads for several hours. The breakfast was AMAZING. The first day we had a cream cheese apple stuffed french toast that we had to get the recipe for. As we are aspiring innkeepers, it was really nice that Leslie and Ron were so transparent about their experiences and the business. The area was neat, the room was good, but the people are what make Elk Ridge a true treasure. God Bless you guys, Mike and Carrie


Wonderful Experience!!!!

My Husband & I wanted to do something different to celebrate our 5th anniversary. So we decided to try Elk Ridge B&B. We absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay!! The room was clean,so nicely decorated and had so many little extra touches that you wouldn't get from just getting a motel room. The bed was also very comfortable, the breakfast was awesone and so nicely served and the sceney was beautiful. Ron & Leslie were great hosts and we left there feeling just like family. All in all it was the BEST anniversary we have ever had, and it will always be a very wonderful memory for us. Thanks SO MUCH Ron & Leslie!!!!


Wonderful B&B!

5 on September 16, 2012

We stayed at the Elk Ridge Bed & Breakfast near Hill City, SD in early September, 2012. We knew it was going to be a great visit when Leslie welcomed us warmly and gave us a tour when we checked in. We had a private entrance to our room,a private bath, and our own deck from which to observe the beautiful night sky and the deer in the backyard. The room was spotless, and the breakfasts were wonderful! I would recommend this B&B for anyone wanting a quiet place to stay in the central Black Hills.


A fantastic experience!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Elk Ridge B & B in Keystone! The hosts were inviting and helpful. Leslie greeted us at the door as we walked up. The western decor matched the "theme" of the area. The location was very convenient being within four miles of Mount Rushmore! My girlfriend and I agreed we would return to Elk Ridge! We would also recommend it to family and friends. It was a great stay! Brent


Black Hills Honeymoon

5 on June 25, 2012

My husband and I stayed with Ron and Leslie on our last night of our honeymoon (6/21/12). We stayed in the room called "Big Jake." Oh wow, that room is beautiful!!! The bed is made of logs... the decor is a bit western, the bathroom was big, bright, and airy... The cookies and turn down service was amazing. Leslie made a wonderful breakfast and they were the most easy going people to talk to!!! Our favorite B&B of our honeymoon by far!!!!


Wonderful!

4.8 on January 12, 2012

We had a wonderful weekend at Elk Ridge bed & breakfast. They were great people and went the extra effort to make our time there excellent. And the food was amazing, Leslie is a great cook. I'd say the best part about the trip was all the little extras that really made the difference!
