The inn was renovated in 2012. Each room includes a private bathroom. THIS LISTING is for the Hermosa Room. This room on the second floor with a view of the valley embraces its namesake, “hermosa,” which is Spanish for “beautiful.” Decorated in serene greens, browns, and ivory, the room suggests the restful solitude of nature. You’ll slip into a beautiful night’s sleep in the iron, country-style queen-size bed. The private bath includes a shower/tub combination. Accommodates up to 2 people.
Our menu varies with Darcy’s fancy and latest inspiration. Recent selections have included favorites such as peaches and cream French toast, 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.
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. Let us pack you a picnic lunch for a trek into the woods or to take along on your travels.
The fireplace in the Great Room and the Gathering Room that opens onto the deck, create inviting spaces for relaxing and socializing or for gathering a group for an event, such as a business or club meeting, or family reunion. A flatscreen television and DVD player are available. We would be delighted to host your next event.
We offer 3 additional guest rooms (all with private bathrooms), listed separately. Altogether, we can accommodate up to 10 guests. Guest AccessWe offer plenty of common area for our guests, as well as our 6 acre property. We do have garage space for motorcycles, with advance notice. Interaction with GuestsWe live on the premises and are available for questions, assistance, and down-home conversation.
