What makes this Cabin unique
The peaceful setting and privacy of this cabin is a solid draw for us and our guests. We have had many, many guests who have stayed every year for the past 20+ years for their family vacations and or deer hunting associated with Thanksgiving.

Secluded, beautiful and rustic
We had a wonderful time at Lone Spruce Ranch. It was the perfect getaway, close to all the sights, but nestled in magnificent forest. We will never forget our stay.
Probably the most relaxing place I’ve ever been. The road in was actually flooded our first night so they put us up in one of their other properties which was Awesome overlooking downtown Hill City. The owners are great and if I can ever go back I would rent the same cabin again.
We are very glad that you were so easy to work with regarding that first night when we were uncertain about the road conditions. Yes, the Lone Spruce Ranch affords many guests with their needs for total relaxation, peace and quiet from an otherwise busy world. Thank you for sharing this review with us and other potential guests. We would love to have you back another time. Marcia
Great Place & Very Secluded
Very nice place that was very secluded. We were in the Hills to ride 4-wheelers and had awesome access to trails from this cabin!
A Truly Hidden Gem in the Black Hills.
The property listed was as expected plus much more. It really came with everything...towels, dish soap, hand soap, coffee filters, plenty of fresh water, satellite TV, grilling utensils, hair dryer, measuring cup, can opener, pots & pans, dishes, it even had extra pillows & blankets for the futon. We stopped at Krull's Market to get groceries which I recommend before you get to the cabin as this saves you a trip back to Hill City. Washer & dryer is available bring your own soap & fabric sheets for this. Most cabins wouldn't offer so much but the owners really go out of their way to make this place clean & welcoming. The best part of it all is the location and no cell service! My 2 teen boys had to actually put their phones down and enjoy the surroundings which they did. They loved seeing all the animals like deer, cows, & chipmunks that visited regularly. Also it really is about 30 mins away from everything if your going north to Deadwood or south to Custer. We recommend eating at a chuckwagon in the Circle B Ranch which is on the way to the cabin from Hill City. If you want to get adventurous rent the UTVs at Rock Mill next door to the cabins office in Hill City. You can rent for full or half day even for a family of 5 like ours. Take it back to the cabin for a lunch and go out driving around the beautiful surroundings. My husband and I really fell in love with this place and South Dakota in general. You won't be disappointed with this place if you are truly wanting to get away from it all.
Thank you for such a complimentary and complete review for this property. This is a great cabin for the adventurous family who likes to hike, ATV or just get away from all the hustle and bustle of daily life. It is good to hear that kids can still find enjoyment in the outdoors! While there is no cell service the cabin does have a land line and satellite TV. If internet was POSSIBLE, it would be there but as of yet technology cannot bring it there. This is truly an oasis in the Hills to be experienced. We have had so many people stay who share your sentiments. I hope you can return another time. Marcia
It was a awesome place to stay !! We came up to go atv and it was great
Thanks for the review, Mike!
I know the open range cattle and excessive snow/rain had pretty much destroyed our perimeter fence when you were here. A new, MUCH BETTER fence has been completed. We look forward to your next visit!

Beautiful and secluded
Had a five night stay at this cabin and would highly recommend it. The check-in process was smooth, cabin was spotless, and the property managers were helpful and considerate. It is tucked into a valley and feels very secluded yet attractions like Rushmore and state parks are an easy drive. We hope to return someday!
The Lone Spruce Ranch is the ultimate place to get away from it all! Located on 10 privately owned acres completely surrounded by the gorgeous Black Hills National Forest. You are completely secluded yet within a 40 minute drive to most major attractions. Our repeat guests love this location because of the privacy and serenity it offers. Plan your day trips to the attractions and come back to the Lone Spruce Ranch to relax, unwind, enjoy family time, and the night stars! Perfect for repeat guests that just want to get away and enjoy the hills, lakes, wildlife, and possibly a trip to the village of Rochford to enjoy a burger and a beer at the Historic Moonshine Gulch Saloon.
