The Belmont Cabin is located conveniently in the center of the Black Hills just three miles south of Hill City. It has one bedroom with a queen bed. This authentic rustic cabin has a small but complete kitchen with full size stove and refrigerator. Walk through the bedroom to access the bathroom with tub and shower. Satellite TV and a private phone for local calls is provided. There is a bbq grill on the porch and a picnic table in the yard. This cabin is available only during the summer months. This 680 square foot cabin offers an affordable stay for a couple wishing to experience the 'cabin' vacation in a forested surrounding. Our full summer rate is less than most area motel rooms in the summer! History enthusiasts: Google Major Marcus Reno for whom this road is named!
My husband and I stayed at the Belmont Cabin for five nights. It was very clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. It is a vintage cabin, but had all the modern amenities. It was very quiet, there was plenty of wildlife and it was very conveniently located to all the attractions in the Black Hills. We thoroughly enjoyed the vintage cookbooks and magazines. We would certainly stay again.
We loved the peaceful quaint cabin. We had wild turkeys, a doe with her fawn outside the backdoor. Heart of the Hills was very easy to work with even on a hectic holiday weekend. We will be back to this little gem.
Our stay at the Belmont Cabin was awesome, the cabin was so clean and fully stocked with everything you needed. We saw a lot of wildlife everyday, deer turkey and many birds. It was so peaceful there, a joy to come back to after a long day of sightseeing. It was only a shot distance from everything we wanted to see. We would definitely recommend this cabin, only not for a family, it would be to small. It would be great for a couple on their honeymoon, or a romantic getaway, we were there for six days, a vacation for us. If we ever go back to South Dakota again we would stay at the Belmont Cabin, we loved it that much. If you choose to stay there am sure you will love it too. We hated to leave. The Phelps Wisconsin
I think this cabin must have been built about the time the Mount Rushmore Memorial opened. It definitely felt old. However, it was clean, everything worked, it was quiet and private, there was a comfortable amount of space inside and out. It was nice to be surrounded by trees. We saw wild turkeys and a doe with her fawn while we were sitting on the porch. The price was right. It was a good value and we enjoyed ourselves. From the log book there we gathered that there is a tradition of hiding and finding pennies which added to the charm. We enjoyed our dinner at the Black Forest Inn. There is lots to do in the area. The Michelson Trail is a joy, and the hiking is varied in the area.
The cabin is just as advertised and the pictures are accurate. It appeared to be built in the 50's perhaps and the furnishing are definitely retro! That being said, everything was clean, comfortable and what we needed was provided. The cabin is very small and may be tight for a family - but then again maybe not if you don't need a lot of space. We spent most of our days out and about and it was very nice to return to the quiet seclusion of the cabin, sit outside and have an adult beverage! The office staff were very helpful and accommodating. The staff sent someone over during our stay to provide fresh towels - something we did not expect but appreciated. It was centrally located to all we wanted to see, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park as well as a lovely drive to Deadwood for the day. We also spent a day in the Badlands - a nice drive over and back. The few restaurants we went to mostly had the same menu: steaks of some sort, choice of potato and a small salad. They were "fine" but nothing special. I do recommend the Sylvan Lake Lodge if you want a better meal. We heard reservations were recommended (turns out to be accurate) and we had the best meal of the trip. They also have a wine list - nothing real spectacular but overall the best in the area. Their menu is online! There is a bakery in downtown Custer City - right on the main street through town. We stopped there on our way home and had the best breakfast of the week. Plus they have many baked goods that looked irresistible! I absolutely recommend this place for breakfast. This cabin is a great place to stay!
We loved our stay in the Belmont cabin. It was everything we wanted to make our stay in the Black Hills so memorable. It was spotlessly clean, well-stocked with everything we needed for linens, towels, cooking utensils, etc. and maintained so well that it felt like a time-capsule of sorts (I've never seen an oven like that before). We were also very happy with the price, as it was cheaper than the cabins in many of the campgrounds that I looked into. The details outlined on website was very accurate and the cabin was just as we expected it to be.
Kari was very helpful and friendly. She certainly went above and beyond in customer service, and gave us lots of suggestions to help us narrow down the all the choices for activities.
We really appreciated the peace and quiet of the cabin after our busy days of sightseeing, and Hill City is such a beautiful town. Everyone we met was friendly, hospitable, and welcoming.
I would recommend reading the guest book as soon as possible when you arrive, as there are lots of tips and suggestions for activities, attractions and restaurants in the area. Some of our favourites were Custer State Park (especially climbing the rocks at the lookout on Needles Highway), the tram/alpine slide, and Bear Country USA. We didn't eat out very often (one of the beauties of having a cabin was being able to make our own meals), but on our last night we went to Desperado's and loved it! Great service, delicious food and wonderful atmosphere...the lamps are cowboy boots. Fun!
All in all, we were thrilled with everything about our stay at the Belmont and would (and already have!) recommend it to anyone planning a trip to the Black Hills.
Centrally located in the Black Hills National Forest; fifteen minutes to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Custer State Park and less than an hour to the northern or southern points of interest in the Black Hills. Three miles south of Hill City, the 'Heart of the Hills'. Numerous restaurants, shops and attractions are nearby. Access to the Mickleson Hiking/Biking Trail is just one mile from this cabin.
