Wish we had been able to stay longer!

Our time at the Inn was wonderful! Everyone was so friendly & helpful. The breakfasts & dinner were delicious and I even came away with a few recipes! The grounds are well maintained & beautiful and our room was great! There is so much to see in the area that 2 days was not enough, we need to come back. The ONLY negative for me (because I'm a light sleeper) was the AC turning off & on during the night woke me up, but that's partly on me. I'm not sure there is anything that could be done about that, kinda comes with everyone being able to control their own temp. in their rooms. We would highly recommend The Black Forest Inn for anyone who wants an amazing Black Hills experience!! Thanks Ron & staff for a awesome weekend!

Relaxing,friendly and homey

We had a large group which stayed for 3 days. 19 people in all. Meals were great, atmosphere was wonderful. Activities for everyone. We couldn't ask for anything more. The Black Forest Inn is where we will be staying on our next trip to the Black Hills.

What a Great Place!

It was a wonderful place to get away. The room was spacious and the tub was very comforting. Cindy and Isaac are great hosts and their meals were out of this world! We are going to tell all our friends to stay with them when in SD.

Simply Wonderful

The Black Forest Inn is located in the heart of the Black Hills in South Dakota. A quick drive to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and a few of the major towns in the area. The Inn itself is nicely furnished, clean, and open. Cindy is an excellent hostess. One guest said "The bed is nice, but I come for the breakfast." The food is so delicious - I bought their cookbook! Many of the rooms have jacuzzi tubs in you won't be shorted there either. I highly recommend staying at the Black Forest Inn.
