Welcome to Hisega! If you're looking for accommodations that are comfortable, rustic, and unique, book a stay at Hisega Lodge. Just west of Rapid City, South Dakota, you will find a unique little community, founded by and named for six women who camped here in 1908. The name of this place is Hisega, and the spirit of these women, Helen, Ida, Sade, Ethel, Grace, and Ada, lives on at Hisega Lodge, located at the heart of the community.
Whether you are interested in an active vacation - enjoy our hiking, fly fishing, or tubing - or a quiet retreat, Hisega Lodge is the perfect headquarters. Enjoy Mt Rushmore, hear the roar of the Harleys in Sturgis, hike the Mickelson Trail, and spend a day gaming in Deadwood. All the attractions of the Black Hills and the conveniences of Rapid City are a short and scenic drive from the lodge.
We have nine guest rooms (all non-smoking), a large dining room for celebrations or meetings, three big fireplaces and a lovely library and great room. We are open year-round so you can enjoy everything the Black Hills has to offer.
Listen to the music of Rapid Creek, soak up some sunshine or relax by the fire. From your private room with private bath, you'll walk onto our covered porch, where it's easy to spend hours just relaxing. And be sure to visit our dining room, where a delicious breakfast awaits you each morning.
Hisega Lodge is an ideal place for a family gathering, a celebration, a workshop or a meeting. The atmosphere is intimate and secluded, yet close to the convenience of Rapid City and just minutes away from the attractions of the Black Hills.
Our dining room will provide a lovely setting for your meals or meetings, and your group will cherish the memories of sharing time on the porch, sitting together by the fire, or venturing out to explore nature.
Our cozy rooms are simple and comfortable. The music of Rapid Creek will play a lullaby as you sink into the tasteful and calming environment of Hisega Lodge. All rooms have private baths and direct access to either the wrap-around porch or the creek. We also have a two-room, one-bath unit. All of our rooms are non-smoking. Bring your laptop and enjoy the internet from your room or any of the common areas. We serve a delicious and hearty breakfast - generous entree, fresh fruit and homemade baked goods.
