White Tail Ridge Bed & Breakfast is on six rolling, wooded acres and offers three spacious guest rooms reflecting the history and beauty of the Black Hills. We are open year-round.
Just a mile from Highway 79, we’re conveniently located to many attractions in the Black Hills:
15 minutes to Custer State Park
20 minutes to Mt. Rushmore
25 minutes to Rapid City Regional Airport
50 minutes to Crazy Horse Memorial
1 hour to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally
1 hour, 10 minutes to The Badlands
1 hour, 15 minutes to Deadwood
5 minutes to Roy's Black Hills Twin Drive-In
The inn was renovated in 2012. Each room includes a private bathroom. If you’re looking for a bit more pampering, the Madam Dora room includes a spa tub.
We serve a hearty breakfast family-style every morning at 8:30, just early and late enough to launch you on your Black Hills adventures. The view from the dining room will start your day with beauty and inspiration. Our menu varies with Darcy’s fancy and latest inspiration. Recent selections have included favorites such as pumpkin pancakes, cream scones, and wild rice quiche. All breakfasts are served family style in the Dining Room, and we’re glad to accommodate special diets with advance notice. If you're around in the afternoon, we'll sneak in some yummy treats.
Sunrises at White Tail Ridge are unsurpassed—if you’re an early riser, join us on the deck for coffee and a stunning start to the day. Deer and wild turkeys are frequent visitors, and you might want to try basking in starlight and our delightfully pure Black Hills air with a glass of wine in the hot tub. Let us pack you a picnic lunch for a trek into the woods or to take along on your travels.
The Gathering Room opens to the deck and creates a natural space for bringing everyone together for conversation, pizza, games, or reading. It's ideal for group gatherings, such as business retreats, club meetings, and family reunions. You'll find an extensive DVD library and a collection of books and games for some relaxing time between your daytime activities or in the evening before bed.
For a small fee, the Gathering Room is available for daily use by non-guests. Also, additional services, such as refreshments and meals can be added. Contact your innkeeper, Darcy, for options and pricing. We would be delighted to host your next event.

When Darcy and John met, they soon realized that owning and running a bed & breakfast was for them. Today, they are passionate about providing the best experience possible for their guests, and treat them in the same gracious way they expect to be treated...with kindness, warmth, and respect. Darcy has lived a vegetarian lifestyle for most of her adulthood and understands guests’ unique dietary restrictions.
Darcy spent her career in government contracting, and, like her grandmother, always had a knack for hospitality, baking, and crafts. She is originally from the Black Hills. John grew up in Iowa and retired from law enforcement. He's very talented in his workshop. They are avid bikers and spend every moment possible exploring the wonderland of the Black Hills.
(Be sure to ask Darcy about her connection to the famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. You won't believe it.)

From Highway 40, turn onto Magnuson Rd.* (this is just 1 mile from Highway 79). Take an immediate left onto White Tail Ridge Road. We are just up the hill, the first house on the right. Please use the 2nd driveway. Go to the deck and continue around the porch to the front door - this is the guest entrance.
* Most online maps show White Tail Ridge Rd. intersecting with Highway 40. This is INCORRECT; it begins at Magnuson Rd.
