Buffalo Rock Lodge and Cabins wants you to know what we are doing to protect you (and us) during COVID-19.

Lodge: Thorough cleaning is the rule, as always. Our cleaning team has been trained to follow public health procedures and criteria. We use nothing but approved antibacterial cleaning products and procedures including all surfaces in the common areas. We remove the entire set of bedding, including blankets, after each guest stay. Breakfast will be served at four different tables, if needed, to accomplish social distancing. Much of our social time with our guests will be done outside on the West deck overlooking Mount Rushmore. We will continue to do our best to ensure sanitary facilities, food preparation, etc. If it is your choice, you may also elect to take your breakfast to your rooms. The lodge does NOT have a shared ventilation system. Each room has multiple windows, in-floor heat and free-standing A/C.

Cabins: We will be replacing the entire bedding set after each group of guests. Our cabins make social distancing very easy as they each stand alone and are NOT side by side as with some facilities. Another BIG plus is that your dedicated bathroom in the showerhouse is not shared by other guests, and is sanitized each day. The pavilion area is 28' across, has two tables and 12 chairs. You can sit around the fire pit and still maintain appropriate distancing. Children can play on the grassy area, and we provide some simple games. All wood for the fire and propane for the gas grill is provided. Be sure to bring your s'mores supplies! We provide long metal sticks for cooking over the fire.

Our family and small staff are committed to exercising safety measures to ensure your good health, and ours.

Buffalo Rock Lodge Bed & Breakfast and Cabins

Welcome to Buffalo Rock Lodge & Cabins, located in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. Located just 3 ½ miles from Mount Rushmore, only 2 miles from the entrance to Custer State Park, and within an hour drive of every major attraction within the hills, we are one half mile off the Norbeck Scenic Byway, and only four miles from the entrance to the Needles Highway. Rapid City, the major airport hub is 45 minutes away, and Badlands National Park is only 45 minutes past that.

The lodge is constructed of massive spruce logs with an extensive deck facing west with views of pine trees, rock outcrops and Mt. Rushmore. The interior decor is dominated by the over-sized natural rock fireplace and genuine western and antique artifacts are in every room. Each B&B room is individually heated and air conditioned. We serve a full western style breakfast each day and a tasty dessert each evening.  Guests enjoy sitting on the deck watching some of our local wildlife graze on our fully natural landscapes.

New in 2019, our “glamping” cabins are now available for reservations. Outfitted with comfortable beds and seating areas, these cabins are perfect for getting out into nature, without being too far into nature. Each cabin also comes with its own dedicated, private bathroom in the showerhouse. For meal preparation, each cabin features a kitchenette unit with hot plate and refrigerator, and the centrally-located pavilion has a propane grill and fire pit for burgers and s’mores (food not included).
