Guestbook comments from the manager

Big Bear Lodge was amazing! We could not really have asked for more. The cabin was beautiful and clean. We were a large group of 13 ladies and everyone loved it. It had a nice big table and seating at the island, so we were all able to eat and spend time together there. We really like to play cards and games and the table was perfect size. The deck also had a great patio table and extra camping chairs so there was plenty of room for us all to be together out there as well. We saw lots of deer walking right past our cabin. Close enough to feed. Location was great as well. Right outside of Lead and close to Deadwood, so making trips into town was really easy. The cabins are little bit too close together, but we lucked out and no one was staying in the cabin next to us, but even if they were, it wouldn't really have bothered us. The beds were pretty comfortable (except the pull out couch in the loft) Overall all, I dont have a single bad thing to say about this cabin. It really met our needs. The decor of the cabin was the perfect amount of stylish rustic. It was all brand new and nice, but still had the woodsy cabin feeling. We will definitely consider staying here again.

Excellent stay for the money

  • 4 of 5

We had no problems with the house. Everything worked as advertised. Some of the chairs on the porch were ripped out and unusable but there was plenty for us to sit in. We were greeted every evening by deer that populate the area and set up a tent for the children to sleep in. The rec house is nice but us adults did not want to go over as the pool was small and with only one pool table it was designed for children to use and it did that rather well as they spent a few hours over there during the week. Fun was had by all!!! I recommend a trip through Spearfish Canyon to Roughlock falls. It is only about 12 miles from the house.

Black Hills escape

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about Big Bear Lodge? The nicest weekend rental property I have stayed in! Beautiful home with a homey yet rustic extravagant feel. We walked in and felt at home. A person can relax and be as secluded as you want. Or venture to the "Clubhouse" for a swim or game of pool. Located very close to several great trails for ATV riding or historic Deadwood. Can't wait for our next trip to Big Bear!

Best Value in the Black Hills!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in numerous cabins in the Black Hills, and this was by far the best value! The cabin is set in a secluded development, that is made up of beautiful rustic cabins. While the setting is secluded, access to the main highway is easy and on a paved, maintained access road. We were greeted to the cabin by wonderful heated floors in the entryway. The entryway was large and provided a great space to dry and warm all of our outdoor gear. The entry opened into an amazing open living space with huge pane windows looking out to an unobstructed mountain view. The living space contained a large stone fireplace and comfortable large overstuffed furniture. The kitchen was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed to prepare and serve meals for 10. The living space opened up to a large two tiered deck with a grill and covered hot tub (which was very nice when it rained). The rooms were all very spacious and comfortable, as were the bathrooms. While the cabin felt very secluded, we were always able to connect to the free WiFi offered at the cabin and always had cell reception. For those wanting to watch tv or movies, there were large flat screen tvs in both living spaces with sound bars and a Nintendo Wii in the basement. Everything was high quality and was easy to operate. We started our trip with 8 people and ended the weekend with 10, never once feeling cramped for space. With its close proximity to Terry Peak, Deadwood, and other attractions you really cannot go wrong with this cabin. We definitely will be booking all future trips to the Hills at Big Bear Lodge! Thank you to the owners for opening their vacation home to our family and making the process easy. It is not often that expectations are exceeded, and Big Bear Lodge did just that!

Great for our CHS Class of 2004 Unofficial Reunion

  • 5 of 5

9 of us rented this cabin for a fall get together. It was perfect for our needs. The bedrooms were comfortable for all, and we never seemed to run out of hot water. We spent all day adventuring in the Black Hills and would come back to a relaxing time at this cabin. There was enough space for our group and even a larger group that we did not feel like we were on top of each other. The price was great also, when you consider the use of the club house as well which is a very short walk from this cabin. We spent much time in the heated pool and steam room. We will defiantly consider this cabin again when we do another unreunion.

Incredible stay at big bear lodge

  • 5 of 5

My family embarked on a "3 generations" trip to South Dakota and booked our stay at the big bear lodge. Upon our arrival we all were amazed at the beauty of this huge log cabin nestled amongst the black hills. The personalized decor immediately made you feel at home and came equipped with all the comforts of home. The living areas were spacious yet cozy and the bedrooms were beyond comfortable which made getting up in the morning that much moe difficult. Love this place and will definitely be back.
