I was SO excited to find a space here! We even got to spend two nights - and were very excited to have found such a wonderful spot! We got our own little cabin and it was so charming! Oh, but first it fills my absolute necessary requirement: CLEAN!!! We walked in to room where a bonnet my Granny could have worn was hung, two quilts that were so beautiful and well crafted adorned the bed - and cozy too - a chair with a woven seat - all "old fashioned" historic amenities. Of course there was the flat screen tv, the microwave and the refrigerator - but also the little electric "fireplace". (Modern travelers have needs.) However, this place could not have been better! It was absolutely a most welcoming and comfortable cozy cottage!
We stayed in Number 5, and it was a bit small - but historic homes were small - especially cottages/cabins! There was plenty of room for everything we wanted - and a space for meeting and lounging outside. Plus two great chairs just outside our door. Everything is beautiful - not only for the eye, but the spirit! I didn't feel cramped or "lost" in space at all! Having traveled in the Badlands and Grasslands prior to this stop, we thought this a great example of self sufficiency and homestead living. Each of the visitors' rooms is a true reflection of the beautiful personalities of Jeanie and Steve!
Asking "locals" for restaurant recommendations is always a good idea, and Jeanie helped us with three. We chose Wooly's and it couldn't have been better! She also helped us get out of the parking - at 4am to go to the Custer Bison Round-up - in the dark! These are good people, and it felt really good staying with them. Unfortunately we were there after the busy season, so we were on our own for breakfast....missed the opportunity to chat with some very lovely folks! Next time for sure!

Perfect! It was a little creepy when we first got here. But I have to say that i was totally surprised and happy to have this place for tonight. All the decorations feel like home and cozy. Everything is cosy and thoughtful. Nice people and hot water. Wonderful!

I hope I have the pleasure of staying here again. I was on a business trip, headed to Deadwood, and stopped here before making the drive through the Black Hills. I was nervous as we drove through the tiny, rundown town but on top of the hill were these wonderful cabins. There was a little snow on the ground, which added to the charm, but it was perfect. The hosts were very sweet and you get your own private cabin. It's not the Hilton, the buildings ARE historic, the blankets are old quilts...it's rustic life at it's finest! It's exactly what I wanted to stay in on a cold winter night in SD. Rates are great too!

I'll save you the trouble and tell you that Hot Springs is the place to stay in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Let me list the reasons.
1) Driving from the south on 385/18, it's the first real town you'll get to and you'll be TIRED.
2) At the entrance to the Black Hills and borders the Ogallala National Grassland.
3) Great little down with it's OWN features, such as mammoth digs, beautiful weather, great restaurants, clear skies, mineral springs and spas, and public mineral water taps.
Now, let me tell you why Historic Log Cabin Motel.
1) Jeanie is great. Very hospitable and very personable.
2) Great coffee in the morning.
3) Pits for grilling and balconies for lounging.
The last part I can't really put into a list because it requires some description. These cabins are beautiful. They are small, but beautiful. Several different sizes are available ranging from a single queens-size to multi-room cabins with small showers and toilets. They all have window AC units but can be cooled very well by leaving the windows and doors open (the breeze was unbelievable) and there is a small portable heating unit in each cabin for the cooler nights. The quilts are handmade by Jeanie and are used on the beds, and each cabin is decorated in a style that evokes simpler times of prairie-living and self-sufficience.
Beds are comfortable and the shower water is hot. Parking is easy and everything is just...beautiful and perfect.
You're within walking or a short drive to the downtown area of Hot Springs (Evans Plunge is around the corner) and only about 10 minutes from Wind Cave National Park. A little further is Custer (x-roads to Jewel Cave National Monument and Mt. Rushmore), and you can head out to the main highway to go to Rapid City for a movie or something (but the highway is DARK at night).
Also, about 2.5 hours to Badlands National Park which is not to be missed.
If this review doesn't answer your questions about the area, each cabin has a notebook that is added to be previous guests. What a great idea!
