Dan and Nancy are PERFECT hosts! Warm, friendly, funny, and gracious -- they have created a beautiful experience in a great setting.

Our room was spotlessly clean, and we used the private hot tub every night (wow - the stars shine bright in the Black Hills)! Breakfasts were incredibly healthy and flavourful, and the company of the hosts and other guests really added to our experience.

Right across the street is an amazing restaurant that has a great wine selection, well prepared and presented food, and outstanding staff.

Summer Creek is also perfectly situated well-away from anything "touristy" while also being close enough to enjoy the landmarks and parks in the area and nearby states.

You can't go wrong - spoil yourself and make some new friends. Summer Creek is simply outstanding.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms with a hot tub :-)

First I would like to say that the black hills themselves are awesome. I see now why the American Indians considered this a holy place. Truly one of the garden spots of this or any other nation. The Summer Creek Inn proved to be a wonderful bed and breakfast in many ways. Very clean and stylish with large comfortable room and every amenity one could think of. Our host and hostess were most gracious and prepared wonderful breakfasts for us on two days of our stay. One day we went on a tour and had breakfast out. We enjoyed our hot tub and out large patio on which we sat and enjoyed the beautiful waterfall. We even saw deer in the yard one evening. All in all a great place to rest and relax. It is centrally located if you are touring Mount Rushmore or any of the Black Hills area. Would be happy to stay there again anytime.

Room Tip: Any room in the place would be great.

Thank you for coming and joining us on your vacation. You're correct on how beautiful the Black Hills are, describing it doesn't do it any justice! We would love to have you join us again when you're ready to check a few more things off your bucket list in the Black Hills! Have a great rest of your summer!

My husband and I stayed at the Summer Creek Inn a few weeks ago in Suite #1. It was just like the pictures. Beautiful and relaxing. Dan and Nancy were terrific hosts. They were very helpful on giving us the low down on some of the restaurants and activities in the area.
We brought our truck and enclosed trailer for our Harley and they had plenty of parking and accommodations for it. The area is very nice and secluded we felt very comfortable.
As people have said you don't have phone service there, BUT we have US Cellular and we didn't have it most places in South Dakota. They did offer their phone in the main room for any outbound calls. This was no problem for us. We were on vacation!
Thanks Dan and Nancy for your hospitality while we were there. We will be back!

My wife and I stayed at Summer Creek Inn's Suite 2 for two nights during our road trip in Wyoming and South Dakota. The Inn and our suite were simply luxurious, it was a real pleasure to return after they day's hiking and touring and relax. This Inn is perfectly suited for couples looking for a private getaway, or wedding parties, which they seem to host regularly. The biggest downside was that there was no internet connection at all, and even our (AT&T) mobile devices could not connect to the network while at the Inn. One should also keep in mind that this is not a regular hotel with 24/7 front desk, room service etc. Having said that, Nancy and Dan were extremely helpful and nice.

Hi Jaakko,
Dan and I truly enjoyed having you and your wife stay with us during your trip. We are working with the phone company to get the internet resolved so hopefully that'll be fixed here soon. We hope you enjoyed your trek across Wyoming and South Dakota and hope to have you come visit the beautiful Black Hills again. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
