Awesome stay in the Black Hills!

12735 Happy Trails, Hill City, SD, 57745, United States

Date of Stay November 9, 2012

We visited South Dakota as one of the final states in my"50 before 50" Adventure (visit 50 states before turning 50:) and the Lariat was the perfect home base for our visit to the Black Hills and surrounding states! We even had some snow which made the setting (and animal watching) that much more fun. It was just the two of us so we rented the downstairs portion and it felt like home. Everything in the cabin was perfect and ready for us. The hot tub in back was private and a great place for star gazing. Can't say enough nice things about Marcia and the staff at Heart of the Hills--they were awesome! They recommended restaurants and scenic drives for us. Hiking in the Black Hills surpassed expectations. The nearby Prairie Berry Winery is a fun stop and they have great food. There is a grocery store in Hill City, which is fine for the basics...but if you like healthy and also organic food, it is very limited there and Rapid City is a better option. (And if you are in Rapid City for lunch, we highly recommend the Dakota Thyme Cafe!) Bottom line--stay here--you will love The Lariat

My Response

We were excited for this couple to stay at the Lariat in pursuit of their last few States on their "50 by age 50" quest. Our worries for their travel in the snow flurries were quickly dismissed: these two were real go-getters and accomplished their goal! The Lariat easily accommodates large groups, but we are able to offer great discounts in the off season for smaller groups as everything two people need is located on the first floor of this cabin. It is close to our office in case of any needed attention by our staff. The owners have done a great job in providing for a nicely appointed cabin for their guests. In the summer, the local store is more likely to offer a bigger variety of fresh produce and organic options. This guest's comment about the deli at Prairie Berry is very accurate. They are building bigger and better things to come so our future guests should make Prairie Berry a "must visit" on their itinerary. Marcia

Great place for families

Date of Stay June 6, 2013

What a great place. This was our first time here but second time with this company. Great cabins. Nice setup. Such a great location. Near everything but enough out to be holiday-ish. Most likely will come back next year to round out a trifecta

Superb spot for vacation

12735 Happy Trails, Hill City, SD, 57745, United States

Date of Stay July 14, 2013

We had a wonderful time staying at the Lariat and seeing a lot of the Black Hills of South Dakota, an area we had never been to before. The Lariat was a great place to stay, lovely layout, clean and comfortable. A heron rookery at the top of a cliff on the east side of the house made for enjoyable birdwatching with binoculars. The cabin was an excellent base for sightseeing Custer State Park, the Badlands, and numerous attractions for our young grandson. Harney Peak climb was well worth the effort! We were here for a family reunion; other family members stayed in nearby places in Hill City.

Comfortable & spacious log cabin

12735 Happy Trails, Hill City, SD, 57745, United States

Date of Stay February 13, 2014

My husband & I stayed here 4 nights & loved it. The home is well decorated & taken care of. Very clean & organized, basically everything you could want as far as dishes & cooking supplies (other than your food) is here! The hot tub worked perfectly - they have a person come out & check the chemicals & maintain it daily :-) I really enjoyed our stay here & will be back to stay another day!!
