My niece was married here in September. The lodge is Beautiful and fully stocked. The staff were attentive and very friendly. The only bad thing is that I lost 3 pieces of jewelry that belonged to my Mom who passed away 5 years ago. The lodge said no one turned anything in. I hope someone found it and will return...

Wonderful staff that did everything to make us feel welcome. They found a way to get a little more heat in the cabin. My wife loved that. Then, later, emailed and asked about my camera charger I forgot. They mailed it to me SUPER !

I recently traveled through Rapid City while heading west and needed a place to stay. I was lucky to find Canyon Lake and had a great experience during my visit. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and answered all of my questions in a very polite manner. I stayed in one of their cabins and was thoroughly...

I recently took a vacation to the Black Hills of South Dakota with my father and my brother. After a long day of touring the local monuments, we began looking for a place to stay the night (as we had resolved not to stay at our previous accommodations). To my surprise, the majority of places which people recommended had been...

This was a clean well cared for Resort Motel. The cabin Pictured is where we stayed. The employees were friendly even though we were late checking in. All the amenities of a motel but in a casual setting on the lake. The cabin is furnished in vintage 80's but that adds to the charm. The kitchen is filled with all...

We arrived late and had gotten a phone call from the front desk saying that we had to be there by 9pm or the office would be closed. We arrived before they closed and had gotten our keys. We walked in and boy did the room STINK! I figured that we would make the best of it and started to...

The location was great we took day trips to all the great sights and it was just a short drive from the resort. We rented one of the single cabins it had a small refrigerator, stove, microwave and a little table. The bed was comfortable and the cabin was cleaned daily., We really enjoyed the privacy and how quiet it...

This resort is like going to your Grandparents cottage. Accommodations are clean, convenient and very quiet. The staff is extremely pleasant and work to provide what you need to be comfortable. If you're looking for a spa atmosphere, this isn't the place for you. The resort is located off hwy 44 which is super convenient whether you want to do...
