We highly recommend!!! We stayed at the Spokane cabin for 8 nights, loved it, worth every penny. It has a full kitchen & stocked to cook & serve food, 1 bedroom with 2 small beds for children and with a private bathroom, another bedroom with a bathroom next to it, a large living room with a TV fireplace & a pull-out bed, and a sun room with a pull-out bed - so could sleep 8 or more if needed - and with a modern gas grill and a fire pit outside on the patio. These cabins are in a great location in a beautiful valley 1.5 miles west of Keystone SD. There was no cell phone reception for us (AT&T) but the cabins have good wi-fi supplied so no problems with contact with the outside world - including using wi-fi calling & video calling. It's peaceful relaxing lodging a few hundred yards off of the paved Old Hill City Road - a perfect getaway spot in the very heart of the Black Hills! The ONLY negative for some folks would be the only 4 TV channels but there is a DVD player supplied, and we did not go there to watch TV - Bruce & Jeanne W.read more

The perfect place for our family reunion! We had five families, and rented four cabins. It was the perfect way to be close to each other, while also allowing everyone a little space. The cousins had a fantastic time playing in the pool. The cabins are charming, clean, and comfortable. We needed the AC for most days, but the last day was cold, so we used the heat. Both worked great. The location was beautiful and just minutes away from town. We definitely recommend this place. While it was great for our large group, it would also be great for a single family, or a romantic get away with just your spouse.read more

We drove straight from Indianapolis and slid into the cabin as the sun was setting. Beautiful location, cabins are perfect for a family or peaceful for a quiet couples retreat. Whitetail deer greeted us as we entered and merium turkeys wandered into base camp the second night. Close to everything and yet so peaceful. Thanks Evan for a great experience!read more

The cabin I stayed in was fairly new. It had two bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs. The main kitchen and living area is upstairs and also has a walkout deck. There are two wood stoves, one upstairs and one down stairs. The cabin was very clean and well equipped with full sized appliances. It is about 2 miles from Keystoneread more

I can not say enough about this place. We had a family vacation there and rented 5 cabins. All cabins were different and fit the need of each family. There was enough room for the young kids to run around outside and enough space for the adults to just hang outside. This place was amazing. Evan was always on site and if we needed him, he was always there. Each cabin was far enough away for their own privacy. The train going by was a plus for the kids and adults. It was nice the internet was scarce, it gave us more time to spend together and not on our phones. I would recommend Backroads Inn and Cabins for anyone who wants to get away and not be in a hotel.read more

What a great little group of cabins! We will be back again. Hopefully when mother nature cooperates a tad more. We live near Rocky Mountain National Park and feel like we just found our new go to place. Clean, well appointed, off the highway, beautiful scenery, all good things to say about this place.read more
