Expensive, but totally worth the splurge. Cabins were beautiful and new. We didn't have a back porch, but we still enjoyed the view through the front window. Unfortunately, when we were there, the winds were a steady 30 mph and COLD, which forced us to spend more time indoors than we had planned on. Being inside the park was a...

The cabins are amazing but beware of their shop and restaurant (see separate review). Our cabin was so well maintained and equipped, it could have been new. I thoroughly recommend them for visiting the Badlands. But is is difficult to image how these amazing cabins can be accompanied by such a poorly run restaurant. Our cabin had a microwave so...

The spouse's first words were '' I thought you said there was a view!'' Well, there was, both in front of the cabin and out back; though we wished we'd had one of the cabins with back and front porches! The cabin was clean and comfortable, with a nice comfy mattress(es) and attractive wooden furniture, yes there was some dust/grit...

Located inside the Badlands National Park the Cedar Pass Lodge is without doubt the best place to stay (for those who aren't into camping). Anyone fancying an early start to catch a sunrise in this unique park, this is where you should be. The wooden cabins with front and back porches are very spacious and clean. Comfortable bed(s), and there...

Separate cabins maintained in great shape. Ours had two queen beds, microwave, small refrigerator, coffee machine, TV and a nice front porch with two chairs. Furniture was made from wood and all real, it was in a way luxurious for a cabin. Great views from the porch. Inside the cabin is all natural wood, just beautiful! Would definitely go back.

Is this luxury? Depends on how you define the term. For us it was appropriately luxurious. The room had big furniture made from real hardwood logs. Mattress was extremely comfortable. There was a refrigerator and coffee pot, large bathroom with the essentials and oversize towels, and a front porch with big hardwood rockers. All of which was decorated with a...

October is an excellent month to visit Badlands National Park, and this is definitely the place to stay. These are rustic but spacious cabins with breathtaking views of the ever-changing buttes and spires. There are Adirondack chairs on both the front and back porches so you won't miss a sight. The only complaint we had was the lack of suitable...

We had an individual cabin in a location which gave us views of the stone formations. We watched the sun set and rise the next morning reflecting on the formations. The sky was so clear at night, millions of stars. Cabin smelled fresh and was very clean. It was nice to park in front of the door and we enjoyed...

Cabins are solid and fairly modern,with decent shower, tv and nice front porch for watching the sun on the hills. Rabbits and birds frequent the areas right up to the cabins and are fun to watch. Very close to the Visitors Center and several hiking trails
