Guestbook comments from the manager

We throughly enjoyed our stay at the Cliff-Top Cabin. Wonderfully appointed with everything we needed to enjoy the area. The location made it very convenient to get to all the area attractions. And we really enjoyed feeding the birds, rabbits and deer.

Away from the rest

  • 4 of 5

What drew me to Cliff-Top Cabin was the privacy, the ease of visiting the sights, and the deck over the cliff. What made the stay for me was seeing my son holding out his hand to feed a doe on the side of the house our first morning. Then there was stretching out on the deck at night looking at the breathtaking amount of stars in the sky while the sound of the creek trickled directly below.

Staying three nights was perfect for getting to Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, The Needles Highway, and all the other gems of the area was both pretty and easy (even a morning trip out to Devil's Tower in Wyoming). Plus, while you're a pleasant drive from each, you feel far away from the tourist "traffic" of each little hamlet at this property - this is a big plus to me.

It's a peaceful spot, and very comfortable, with a relaxed feel to both inside and out. For my wife, child and I it was nice, and not being a fancy amenity lover is a plus. Everything was clean, well cared for...for the most part. If you're someone, or your fellow travelers are, who get annoyed by little imperfections you'd find in your own home (a couple nails popping out from a wall downstairs, creaky stairs, or a dehumidifier running in the downstairs bedroom), it's not for you. I'd even go as far as to say I feel the property is 25-35% overpriced as lodging, but as a location, and the "away from" the hotels and their noises and traffic, the price is fair in the opinion of this guest. Bottom line, with my disclaimers above, I'd go back, and recommend Cliff-Top Cabin to friends with similar tastes and expectations.

True South Dakota retreat. Spacious, comfortable and very relaxing atmosphere. Centrally located to allow easy travel to the area's attractions such as Mt. Rushmore and Custer Stte Park. Owners are gracious hosts.

The house was the perfect location for everything we wanted to see

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, inviting and comfortable. No wifi available but the whole area has limited access and it's a great place to disconnect and just relax which is exactly what we were looking for!
