Newton Fork Ranch

We offer six intimate real log cabins and two historic ranch houses for nightly or weekly rental year-round. Our log cabins circle a picturesque meadow and are placed well back from the road.  Newton Fork Ranch will become your “home away from home;” your peaceful oasis from a world filled with time constraints and non-stop activity. Our fully furnished and well-equipped log cabins will afford you a welcome respite from a hectic life. An afternoon sitting on the deck watching wildlife or an evening spent by a warm fire will transport you to a far simpler and more tranquil time.

Each log cabin features a full kitchen with range, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, cookware, dinnerware and utensils. Each also has a gas fireplace, gas barbeque, an old-fashioned clawfoot bathtub or rock shower, towels, bedding, and a porch with breathtaking views.  Five have lofts and comfortably sleep up to four people. Our sixth, which has a view of Black Elk Peak (formerly Harney Peak), is a two-bedroom and can sleep up to eight.

Our historic two-bedroom Grandma's Ranch House has a wood-burning fireplace, was built in 1914, and sleeps up to six. The famed Original Badger Clark cabin is "off-the-grid," sleeps two, is heated by a pot-bellied stove, and is for adventurous guests interested in South Dakota's first Poet Laureate and in turning back the clock to a by-gone era.  All of our cabins are placed a short distance apart to afford peace and tranquility.

We have a private access gate that opens directly onto the Mickelson trail.

PETS: Newton Fork Ranch welcomes guests traveling with their well-behaved pets. GUESTS TRAVELING WITH HORSES: we have two heavy-duty 12' x 12' paneled corrals available for a small rental fee.

Backroads Inn & Cabins

Our goal is simple: create a space and atmosphere that allows peace, rejuvenation and quality time with others.
 
In order for this to be made tangible, our cabins are filled with the modern comforts of plush furniture and full kitchens amidst the rustic character of knotty pine walls and custom designs. Our grounds reflect the natural setting of the Black Hills, replete with tree-covered hills, beautiful rocks, stillness and an array of wildlife - the perfect place to enjoy a dip in our heated pool or an evening by your own private fire pit. 

Just because you can enjoy the feeling of a mountain retreat doesn't mean you are in the middle of nowhere. Located in a valley on the backside of Mt. Rushmore, we are literally minutes away from most of the attractions people come to the Black Hills to see.

While at our property, you are our guests and will be treated as friends. We will do whatever we can to make your time one of enjoyment and relaxation.

Make time to get away; it'll be worth it.
