The cabin reminds me of a Harrison Ford quote from the movie Six days / Seven Nights when stranded on a remote southern Pacific Island he is asked by Anne Heche "who is on the island" and he replies.... "us". In all of our travels we've never been so "away from it all!" The view is absolutely pristine and virgin. This place today looks much as it must have to the ancients and native Americans who first inhabited it. This is truly "untouched". Every day I would gaze across the canyon expecting to see at least an occasional hiker or part of a roofline but there was only nature and "us" there, period. That is really unique! The cabin itself is so well designed to maximize views from everywhere with as many windows as a structural engineer would safely allow. Even the master bedroom has a huge picture window looking out into the canyon. We spent a ton of time inside too; reading, doing crafts, cooking & eating, and playing board games and it never felt like we were inside. I took a ton of photos inside of the cool artwork and artifacts along with the cabin architecture in general. Many log cabins still have a lot of dry wall since its cheaper to do but this cabin is all lovely logs, perfectly placed, with great craftsmanship. Its a marvel and art itself. You will never see more stars at night than you do here. We also witnessed 2 falling stars on the same night. I now realize that we only see maybe 40% of the night sky from our home in rural Minneapolis. That said, we do have a few quibbles. 1. There is only one small bathroom and that slows things down in the morning a bit. 2. We were relatively handy to our favorite Black Hills area, Sylvan Lake / Needles Highway but you are a long 65 miles from the Rapid City Safeway if you need /want high quality seafood like tuna and salmon. We eat seafood twice a week minimum, and thus made an extra trip back to Safeway RC later in the week to "re-provision". If all you need are brats and burgers this won't be necessary. We're foodies and found the cabin location not as convenient for upscale food and wines as we'd have liked. Tried the Game Lodge restaurant one night for trout and it was average at best so not sure you'll luck out finding more foodie type restaurants without going back to RC. We combined our 2nd RC trip with Devil's Tower which is an awesome place not to be missed so it all worked out. All said and done this place should be on everyone's bucket list to experience at least once. Cheers!
