Gorgeous cabin!!! Spacious, cozy, romantic and fun! Very clean and welcoming. Fresh flowers in the bedrooms. So much better than staying in a hotel! Every night around dusk, several deer came to drink from the pond. It was incredible! The hot tub was just what we needed after a long drive there and after touring the sites each day. Beautiful area and view! Secluded enough for a comfy private stay but conveniently close to town if you needed to run and get groceries or a delicious cup of coffee from the little coffee shop, also easy access to the interstate! We used the grill a few times and now my husband wants one just like it. Very nice! Thanks to the laundry room in the cabin we didn't have to do any laundry once we were home! Our son loved the bear in the loft and misses him a lot so we'll have to come back and visit again real soon! We made memories that will last a lifetime! Thank you so much! July 2017

Rally 2013 guests: "Staying at the Waterwheel this week and what a great place. Centrally located and easy access to everything in the Black Hills. This is our second stay with Executive Lodging and they have been great each time." John

I stayed here for ten weeks while I was working on a local contract. The pictures do not convey the WOW! factor. The floor plan is so conducive to family gatherings, the lodge is well constructed (the owner milled the logs himself), the decor is upscale "cabin cozy" and the kitchen is stocked with every utensil/appliance you could need. But best of all was the thoughtfulness of the owner: preparing a beautiful fire waiting to be lit, the full canister of cocoa, the heirloom couch, the needlework Bible verse posted in the hallway, the kids board games. Trust me, this is a special place that will warm your heart. Will be back for sure. Barb H.

Perfect place to stay!! Centerally located for everything you would want to do or see around the Black Hills. Easy access to Hwy 90 to take you anywhere you need to go. We will difiniately be back! June 2014
