“Fantastic place in the heart of the black hills.”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If one likes solitude like we do, go to this beautiful place. If you want to ride your large motorcycle to this beautiful place in the "hills", it is very doable. The wife & I rode both of our loaded softail motorcycles to this beautiful place for our 50th wedding anniversary! Of course we have been riding for many years.

“Stunning.”
Reviewed 13 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My wife and I couldn't have chosen a better venue, or a better host. We needed a weekend getaway and it was a late notice, but Tom was so willing to help and a joy to speak to. The cabin itself is wonderful and the view from the balcony is amazing. We are so grateful for Tom's services and so glad that we found this beautiful cabin. My wife and I have already made plans to make return trips in the future.

“Sturgis 2015”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a getaway. if anyone is interested in getting back to the basics and an excellent Cabin with a fantastic view, then Mountain Crest is your place to stay.
3 friends and I travelled to South Dakota for the 75th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally
If you got up early and got on the road then the crowd wasn't too bad and with all of the back roads to travel we always were able to navigate around with ease.
Overall Fantastic trip.
Tom you were such a pleasure to work with and I look forward to returning to your home away from home.

Hi Jesse, Thank you for taking the time to share your fantastic trip experience and your stay at Mountain Crest. Glad to know that you enjoyed yourself and that you liked the cabin. This year's Rally was a really big one. I can certainly understand how you must have felt a sigh of relief as you returned back to the cabin's tranquil mountain top setting after dealing with all those other riders. Would love to welcome you back and extend that repeat guest discount.

“Heaven...period”
Reviewed 27 December 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed here in July of 2014. It was spectacular. The views were breathtaking, the seclusion was amazing, and the well stocked cabin made it easy. I saw deer, chipmuncks, and jackrabbits while sitting on the rustic, yet beautiful deck drinking my morning coffee. The price was right, and it was in driving distance to everything. I highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to visit South Dakota but dont want to stay in a hotel. The cabin was very clean also.

I was pleased to learn that you enjoyed your stay and that you found Mountain Crest to be a unique experience. Enjoyed reading your comments on it being heavenly, nicely secluded, and convenient.

“Incredible Cabin, Outstanding Owner & Caretakers”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

We have been renting cabins for our vacations for almost 30 years, mostly in Canada, and the US . This is our second consecutive trip to Mountain Crest, in the Black Hills, in South Dakota. We enjoyed it last year, and again this year, and we look forward to another visit. The cabin ; incredible, SO clean, an authentic log cabin, with a view that will astound you. There is just so much to offer in this property, from the views, the peaceful solitude, ( so peaceful you can hear your heart beating!), wraparound deck with a great BBQ ( and 2 extra tanks of Propane in the shed) the incredible firepit, which we enjoyed nightly, to the immense effort put in by the cabins owner and caretakers, to ensure that you have every possible item that you may, or may not even need, to make your vacation a success.I rarely use all the items I take with us, as they have everything and anything you could ask for right there. The Black Hills is a fun, but very busy and hectic place to visit, but coming home to this blissful cabin will refresh you completely, and make you want to go out again tomorrow. Wake up to amazing sunrises, go out on the balcony, and watch the deer and wild turkeys frolic in the meadow below. Oh, and if you are a stargazer.....don't forget your equipment/books, as the constellations are AMAZING up there at night, with a beautiful view of the lights of Spearfish. Mountain Crest's owner,Tom, really cares about people, a wonderful personality trait to see. Honest, caring, prompt, and efficient, he will advise you of the roads regarding motorcycles, or any other concerns he may have for your enjoyment, or safety while you are there. Tom is a rarity; we really didn't think there were people like him anymore. Not only will he make you feel like you've known him all your life; you'll feel like friends for life. Oh, and by the way, DON"T forget your camera.....I enjoy the views from his cabin all year long, in the large prints on my walls. It helps to shorten the cold Canadian winter.

Thank you for your time and effort in sharing your thoughts about your second visit to Mountain Crest. Do appreciate that you are a seasoned traveler with experience from staying in other cabins. An owner may think that they are being unbiased and are providing quality service and a good product, however, objective observation and feedback from someone not as close can be very helpful. Pleased to know that you enjoyed your repeat visit and felt at ease and comfortable. The serenity, solitude, and genuine uniqueness of this cabin really do make it special. Beyond that, you seemed to have achieved that relaxed, yet secure, ‘at home’ type feeling during your visit. That’s great! We are always striving to provide that to our guests.
