Good quiet location, very woodsy. Away from the craziness of Keystone. Good staff, and excellent food right there!

Close to Mount Rushmore but we only checked in at 8:00 pm and left st 6:00 am so nothing was open to even get coffee. Not my cup of tea and wouldn’t return. It did have a nice shower and bathroom.

Bed Bugs

Cons: Internet, bedbug infestation
The cabins seemed nice, and roomy. The bathroom was older but clean. The wifi internet access is non-existent. Overall, I was disappointed with this booking. The coffee was like water....we had to use 3 pods for a cup if coffee to get it to taste like coffee. I was completely grossed out when we seen small red/brown bugs on the bed. We were not certain if they were bedbugs...we couldn't pull up the internet to check. I was able to confirm that they were bedbugs when we got home as there were bugs attached to my clothing. Uderly disgusting.

Gem just outside ultra busy downtown Keystone

Wonderful gem nestled in pine trees just outside ultra busy downtown Keystone. Super always busy restaurant on premise; make dinner reservations when check in. Easy access to Mt Rushmore

Very short overnight.

Would have loved to stay longer. Very cute and clean cabin. But this allows for an evening and morning visit to Rushmore which I highly recommend.
