Lodges are the best!
Submitted: February 2, 2013
Stayed: July 2012
We have stayed here twice in the past few years. The first year was during Bike Week 2008, and we rented the Deer Glen Lodge with four other couples. There was plenty of room for all of us, and all of our bikes. The garage is absolutely huge and clean! The Full Kitchen and W/D made life much easier for all of us. The deck was a perfect spot for BBQ'ing and unwinding after a long day of riding.
The second stay was the week prior to Bike Week 2012 and we rented the newer lodge - the Lake View Lodge. Again the amenities were plentiful, and the separate Bunkhouse was perfect for my husband and I - we appreciated having our privacy while he was on leave. Although there is no garage at Lake View, there is a carport that had enough room for all of our bikes. Some members of our party were sidelined/hospitalized on their way to Sturgis from Oklahoma due to heatstroke, but the owners, Scott & Sherry, helped us so that we did not have to eat the total cost of the extra cabin we had rented for them.
The property is centrally located and very quiet, even during Bike Week. There are great trails and quiet roads to run on in the early mornings with friendly neighbors greeting you as you go past. There is also an abundance of fauna and wildlife to enjoy, including deer (and no, you can't shoot them)! Word to the wise: Don't park or stand under an apple tree for too long ;-)
