Perfect 1st Family Vacation

Such a cozy, quiet cabin with all the amenities to create the best memories for our first family vacation with little kids. So much space to run, wild animals, and perfectly located right outside of town. We had the best time and it was great having our dog with us, with ease! Thanks for a wonderful trip! Can't wait to come back. The Brown Family

So very happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again soon.

September Harley Ride in The Black Hills

First, the communication with Beth was outstanding! She replied in a timely manner via email and then, once in the area text messages were replied to immediately. We rented cabin #5, and it was the perfect space and amenities for three adults . Cabin was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our time relaxing and cooking inside our using the grill. Our trip was based on riding our motorcycles in the area, which we brought out via a trailer. The only area that caused concern was the terrain and roads in the vicinity of the cabins. You need to be a skilled rider to deal with the large stone gravel roads and driveway at the property. This was a little challenging. Thus, understand this if you plan on using motorcycles for this location. All in all, I highly recommend Elk Haven for you lodging needs! Brad (Wisconsin)

So happy you enjoyed the cabins. Hoping the continuing work on our roads will make it a better experience for bikes in the future.

Loved our stay!

We stayed in Cabin #4 while attending the Buffalo Roundup, visiting Mt. Rushmore, riding the 1880 train and enjoying the Ft. Hayes Chuckwagon dinner and show. Our cabin was conveniently located to access all of the events while allowing us to feel that we could escape the busyness of town. The cabin was great...clean, comfortable and affordable. Our group also loved being close to Custer to enjoy the Black Hills Burger & Bun Company and the Purple Pie Shop. Yum! Thank you, Kris and Beth, for making our long weekend so enjoyable! Everything was lovely!

So glad you enjoyed your visit to the Black Hills!

Dream getaway

Very nice cabin. It was perfect for our week away. It took some time to figure out what all the light switches controlled, but that wasn't a big deal. It's easy to get to, close to town and yet you feel so far away from the rest of the world. If we're ever back in the area we will be staying here again.

Great place to stay!

Such an amazing little hide away! We had 6 people in our group. With Covid we missed our trip to San Antonio, therefore we decided to vacation closer to home and could not think of a better place to visit then the beautiful black hills of SD. Finding places to stay for 6 people isn't easy but this place was perfect! Loved the entertainment of all the deer in the area. Thank you Elk Haven!

Wonderful Accommodations, Perfect location during COVID-19 Pandemic

Bottom Line Up Front: Elk Haven is a jewel of a location in the heart of some of the most incredible sites in South Dakota. It is reasonably priced and well placed in a remote location which enhances both the beauty of the land, and the peace and quiet that we sought. I highly recommend this place and I am so glad I found them on the internet. My family and I truly had a memorable experience. Details: The cabin was clean, well-appointed, and most importantly, remote. Some other reviewers have complained about the dirt roadway leading up to Elk Haven, but we recognize that we are in a remote area and, being a camping family, we know that driving on unpaved roads is par for the course. In fact, I feel it's one of Elk Haven's assets. Being located one mile up a no-outlet, dirt road virtually eliminated any unnecessary traffic and preserved the sense of peace and quiet that we valued. And in this period of the COVID-19 pandemic, the remoteness of the cabins helped to ensure social distancing! Since there was no traffic on the roadway and very few lights in the area, Elk Haven was the perfect place to observe the night sky without any light pollution interference. Also, the campsite was absolutely silent which allowed us to enjoy the stillness of the night. This was especially notable on our last evening, when a thunderstorm passed through the area. It was remarkable to hear the thunder echoing throughout the surrounding hillsides, and to see the hills brilliantly lit up in the brief flash of lightning. The cabin was spacious enough for my two sons and our guest in the upstairs loft. The proprietors Kris and Beth were accommodating and accessible for any questions we had prior to our arrival, and responsive to any needs we had during our stay. Finally, I would add that Elk Haven was reasonably priced for what it has to offer. Elk Haven is truly a treasure that you must experience first-hand. If you don't mind driving up a dirt and gravel road to get there, you will be richly rewarded. I highly recommend this place for your next vacation. You will not regret it.

Everything = Beautiful, Welcoming, Comfortable, 5-Star Rating-Worthy

What a fantastic cabin in an equally wonderful setting. Everything was ready, cleaned, and welcoming when we arrived. Beth was excellent before and during our stay... but with all of what we needed already provided once we arrived, we did not even need to contact her during our stay other than to say hello. The living area was comfortable; the kitchen well stocked, the bedroom and loft rooms exactly what we expected and wanted. We loved the barbecue and deck. And the bathroom was clean and well proportioned. As a family with teenagers, having a cabin that satisfies the whole family can be tricky. Elk Haven was our best cabin experience, ever. And our children would agree. We did not want to leave, and hope to return and stay during our next trip to the Black Hills

We are so happy you all enjoyed the cabin.

My family enjoyed our stay. Had everything we needed. Kids enjoyed climbing on and around the hills in the backdrop. If you journey up high enough, you can see a beautiful sunset. Cabin 3 in the highest of the 5 as they are set in a semi circle on an incline.

Excellent Visit!

We were a group of 3 in our senior years and truly enjoyed the peace & quiet of the Elk Haven Cabins. They were a home away from home after our scenic events of the day. The cabin was clean, well equipped & cozy. Kris & Beth were extremely accommodating and we were very blessed to have found them. We visited all of the scenic areas in the Black Hills and had a great time. Thank you for being such terrific hosts Beth & Kris. Would definitely stay with you upon our return to South Dakota. Respectfully, Pamela

We are so glad you found us. We are happy you enjoyed the cabin and the area.
