Pets are permitted on case-by-case scenario and availability of pet friendly units. If approved, there is a $75/pet fee and a $200 damage deposit.

Is there Wi-Fi?

Yes, we have wireless Internet. However, we DO NOT guarantee that it will work all the time since thunderstorms can interrupt our service.  While we have upgraded the wireless network, the cabins with the best service are Mountain View Suite, Silver Mountain #2 and Silver Moon, as they have a better signal. Boulder Hill Barn, Coon Hollow and Silver Lining have the lowest signal strength.

Safeway on Mount Rushmore Road and Walmart are the closest.  Hill City and Keystone are both about 15 minutes away from the cabins.  Hill City offers Krull's, a nice grocery store for a small town.  Keystone only has convenience stores.
