The closest bed and breakfast to Mt. Rushmore, our great location provides you with the perfect escape from your hectic days. Elk Ridge Bed & Breakfast is an eclectic western home set in the Black Hills of South Dakota, where you are surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Our location back in the Black Hills is tranquil and quiet and a wonderful way to get away. Elk Ridge is conveniently located about four miles from Mt. Rushmore, halfway between Keystone and Hill City. Rapid City, the Black Hills' major town, is 26 scenic miles away.

Do they allow smoking? We are none-smokers and do not like rooms where people have been allowed to smoke.
Smoking is allowed outside only. the rooms are smoke free.
