It is part of ten acres that is completely surrounded by Federal forested land. A stream is on the property. This is the ideal property for hiking, hunting, relaxation and ATVing.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your return stay at the Lone Spruce Ranch. We have several repeat guests who enjoy this location for their ATV and hunting experiences. For others considering this rental, we provide all the linens, towels, dishes, small appliances and there are plenty of supplies left for our guests so it isn't necessary to purchase paper products, etc. We invite others to experience the quiet nights and mountain surroundings and hope to see all of our repeat guests again and again.

Spectacular Time in the Hills at the Lone Spruce Ranch!

  • 5 of 5

Five sisters - three from Minnesota, one from California, one from South Dakota called the Lone Spruce Ranch "Home" for a couple of days. We had a wonderful time ATVing and hiking right from the cabin - the location couldn't be more perfect! We found excellent trails and saw White Tail Deer, Mule Deer, Turkey, a herd of Elk, and gorgeous Fall foliage! Around every bend and turn we were in awe of the beauty of the Black Hills. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make nice meals and enjoy a bottle of wine in the evenings. At night we took in the peace and quiet and admired the starry night sky, but our favorite was visiting around the gas-log fireplace and playing cards at the dining room table. All the fresh air and fun sent us to bed fairly early, and we slept like rocks in the comfortable beds! All five of us mentioned how relaxed we felt just minutes after arriving and it was hard to leave on departure day. The Lone Spruce Ranch is a treasure and we sure hope to return! We'd like to thank the owners, management, and housekeeping for doing such a great job for us! If you're looking to get away from it all, relax and unwind, get back to nature, or reconnect with your family.....this is the place! ~all good things, the McDaniels Sisters

Cabin in Black Hills

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in the cabin. It is well kept, clean and in beautiful surroundings. Nothing was lacking inside the cabin and out. Would like to stay there again when we go out to Black Hills. Would recommend this property to everyone who wants to get away from the city and enjoy peace and quiet.

Great Stay! This cabin is just as picturesque as the photo. The cabin is situated on a well maintained lawn with a tripping brook across front of property facing a beautiful rock face hill. We enjoyed the lack of cell service quieting the electronics and adding a level of serenity to the visit. The drive to Hill City is a bit long but the free grazing cattle added a bit of excitement to the sight seeing filled drive. Cabin was very clean and well maintained. The beds and linens were comfortable with good stock of cooking pans and utensils.

Great place! We loved the cabin and the peace and quiet. It's a long drive from hill city, about half an hour but it's adventurous. I think one of the best things about our vacation was coming here after a day of sightseeing and just relaxing. Wish we had more time to do that, but we rarely get to the black hills so had to see and do everything. Loved sitting on the deck although it was cold at night. Also loved the rustic feel of the cabin. It was perfect for 2 couples since there's a 2nd bathroom in the loft, made it easy to get ready in the morning. I had never stayed in a cabin or vacation rental before this and didn't know what to expect. So glad we didn't stay in a hotel! I didn't want to leave this place- great memories here!

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing "great memories" with others. I'm glad your first experience with a vacation rental was positive. We have had many guests say they will never go back to hotels after experiencing the comforts of a vacation home. We will look forward to having you back! Marcia

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.
