This was a beautiful place to stay. The staff was great to work with. There was a little garbage out side the house and some wall damage that I documented, but didn't have to worry about getting my deposit back. I will stay there again in the future.

The lodge was very clean with lots of space so that nobody felt crowded. The hottub was great and it had all the ammenities you needed. The only improvement I would recommend is some new towels and a better BBQ which was very dirty and rusted through.

Perfect family vacation home. Hot tub, pool table, games, beautiful views, beautiful kitchen, so much room to spread out, and close to the ski resort. You will need 4 wheel drive to get to the cabin if the road is icy or snowy, however, the road did make for great sledding. Would definitely stay there again.

The cabin was clean and spacious. It’s a great place for a large group to stay. The only down-side for us was a lack of yard for the young kids to play but honestly, that would not deter us from staying there again.

We had an amazing time at the Grand Lookout Lodge. The cabin was set up nicely as it had common areas to enjoy yet had plenty of room to get away and read a book or relax alone if you wanted to. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were stocked well with towels and amenities. The large washer/dryer was a time saver and easy to use. The kitchen/dining area was spacious and set up with everything needed for baking, frying, microwaving, etc. A large dishwasher helped with the daily clean-up. The living room has a hutch with movies to watch or coloring books for the kids, games to play etc. There was a family of chipmunks that entertained the kids on most of the days we were there, and showtime for whoever wanted to sneak a movie in. We were very happy with our stay at this cabin.

Family of eleven. Plenty of room to spread out. The adults loved the kitchen, king-size beds, 3 1/2 baths. The teenagers loved the hot tub and pool table. The toddler loved going up and down the staircase. The weather was perfect. A winter wonderland. We were happy as could be with the fire going, our own personal snow globe.

We had a fabulous time vacationing and seeing the sites in SD. Being able to come "home" at the end of a long day to this beautiful cabin made the trip even better. Pictures for this cabin simply don't do it justice. And our boys loved playing pool! We would definitely stay here again!

Celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary at the Grand Lookout Lodge & it was perfect! Our entire family was able to stay in one location & share lots of quality time together. Lodge was very well kept & included everything we needed. Such a beautiful outdoor setting nestled in the pine trees. Really enjoyed the gorgeous view from the large deck. Would love to stay here again!!!

Wow! It was absolutely gorgeous. Plenty of space for the 15 of us. All of us slept well. The kitchen was fabulous and the owner had lots of stables and lots of cooking equipment . We would love to do it again

Great place to stay. Close to trail. Not a very ideal driveway for trailers. Driveway to slippery to drive up even with pickup and no trailer. Otherwise it was a great time!

The Grand Lookout Lodge met every need my family and I could have asked for. The location was ideal since we Tubed at Deer Mountain and skied Terry Peak, the cabin was close to both areas. We enjoyed everything the cabin had to offer. We will definitely stay there again.

Grand Lookout Lodge is a fantastic rental. We have been renting vacation homes for over 30 years and this cabin was among the top two rentals. The location is somewhat secluded from town but the beautiful scenery was worth it. The cabin is beautifully decorated, has a tremendous amount of room, and wonderful porches which almost surround the house. We saw turkeys, deer, chipmunks, squirrels and another animal we could not identify. It is about 1.25 hours from the airport, 1.5/2 from Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands. It was a pretty drive to Custer and Mt. Rushmore. It is about 30 minutes from Spearfish. Deadwood and Lead are very close. Take the Boothill tour in Deadwood, hike Spearfish Canyon, go to Sturgis, and eat at Lewie's the wi-fi was great and so were the hamburgers.
The only suggestions are to add more pots to the kitchen. There are tons of dishes and pans but only 3 pots. We cooked and grilled almost every night and we needed more for 9 people. Also, bring fans if you are staying upstairs, it was very hot and stuffy. It was freezing downstairs. I would suggest a window unit, fans or a second air conditioner, it was stifling at times when we were home during the day. Also, please add a curtain to the game room door, our grandkids were freaked out when they got up at night. The sliding glass door was hard to lock, so a security bar would be nice to have. You have to lift the door to lock it and only the 2 men could do it. The biggest problem for our family was the wi-fi, it was a hot spot, and with 9 people connecting to it, it was not adequate. We could not get much to download or upload. I could not connect to my office and had to use and renew my own data from my ATT plan. The teenagers were not happy campers.
All in all, it was a wonderful vacation and the house was great except for the wi-fi connection. We loved the grill, the porches, the hot tub and the scenery. Budi was a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this gorgeous home to friends

Our daughter was getting married at Recreational Springs so I went online to book a cabin for the rest of our immediate family. This one was just up the road from the wedding venue and the pictures looked great and rates were reasonable for a family. The pictures did not do it justice! It was so spacious and clean. The place was spotless! We had our 18 month old granddaughter so cleanliness was important.
I am not a real tech person, but had no issues booking. I contacted the manager Buddi a few times with questions and she either answered her phone immediately or called me back shortly after.
We could not have asked for a more perfect place to spend one of the most memorable weekends of our lives!

We had a wonderful time at this cabin with lots of family. There was plenty of room for everyone and a large dining table so we could eat together. It took us a while to figure out the gas fireplace and the Internet since there were no instructions. Also, the request to remove shoes while indoors was problematic since the polished wooden stairs to the top floor are VERY slippery in socks. I recommend bringing some slippers with rubber soles. Otherwise we made some great memories here!

We recently stayed at the Grand Lookout Lodge for an extended weekend stay with family and friends. The lodge was very clean and well stocked and made for an excellent and relaxing getaway. Most of our group was there to snowmobile and the only downside of this lodge was that it's located at the top of the hill and it was not possible to get trailers up there. We even had a hard time with a few vehicles since it was icy but the owners were very helpful and came right away in the morning to help clean it off. Overall it was a great place!
