Relax in our 8,000 sq ft home located just 6 miles outside of Sturgis. Our kitchen and living room views overlook the beautiful black hills and our dining room table seats 14. We are located off of Hwy 79 (only 3 miles of gravel) on a 1 mile private road that makes getting to rally events very convenient. Master Bedroom has a private deck and hot tub, with private bathroom, and double headed spacious shower/ massage steam room. A private guest suite includes a den and full bathroom. These rooms are on the main level with no steps. The walk-out basement was just fully remodeled and has 10' ceilings. Four bedrooms have convenient sinks/mirrors in the rooms. Laundry facilities are located in the master bathroom and in the lower level. An 8-10 person hot tub is located on our back patio that has amazing views of the hills and stars at night... a perfect way to end the day!

The pictures do not do this property justice. Twelve of us spent 10 days at this property the week prior to the Rally. What an amazing time we had. The house was fabulous and made our time in South Dakota extra special. There was plenty of room for everyone. We were able to eat together at the table that seats 14! We never left in the evening because we had so much fun at the house. The hot tub on the deck was used every evening and the playroom downstairs was great fun. The view off the patio was majestic and we had our coffee enjoying the views each morning. Although it is 3 miles on a dirt road, once we got used to it, that wasn't a problem at all. It was definitely worth it. Each of the bedrooms had great mattresses which after riding all day, is important. The owners (Kristen & TJ) were great and made us feel right at home. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to spend time in the Black Hills.
Our family had a reunion at this home August 20-August 24, 2014. We had 21 adults and 10 children (ages 13 to 2 years). We all had a ton of room, plenty of beds and enjoyed the amazing views. Our children had the opportunity to “swim” in the hot-tub, and TJ came over and assisted with letting the kids’ zip-line. We appreciated the time he and Kristen (Home-owners) put into answering all of our questions and accommodating a large group. The house was cozy, comfortable and did I mention the views?? ? The deck has an incredible view of the hills and you just felt at peace while at this home. With having the kids there, we did a lot of the site-seeing that you would expect (Watiki Water Park, Reptile Gardens, Bear Country USA, Mount Rushmore, etc.) and the drive back and forth was quick (about 35 minutes to Rapid City) so the property isn’t too far out. I would definitely recommend this home to any family and larger group gathering! Thank You for sharing your home with all of us!
We had s family reunion there and had an excellent time. The house and property was in great shape and there was nothing that we needed that was not available for preparing meals and relaxing with a variety of activities available. I would certainly recommend this venue for your family get together. It's right outside of Sturgis and offers a great opportunity to do all that's available in the Black Hills.
Our family group of seventeen spent a week in this Whitewood home recently. I tried my best to summarize what I heard from the group... "Great vacation! The house was beautiful and plenty of room for all of us!" "The house was very comfortable, with amazing views while the owners went out of their way to make sure we had everthing we needed. Game nights, star gazing, the huge hot tub & gas fire pit were so much fun! Made a large family vacation so relaxing!" "This vacation was awesome! The house had beautiful views and enough space to fit everyone comfortably. The owners (TJ and Kristen) were welcoming & helpful to us." "Who would have thought South Dakota could be so beautiful! TJ and Kristen gladly opened their house to our family of seventeen - and we had more than enough room. The floor to ceiling windows framed the sunsets perfectly and the back patio was great for evening fires and s'mores. Our experience in Whitewood was unforgettable! Thank you!" "The house was terrific, with incredible veiws and a spacious floor space. It never felt crowded even with a seventeen person group. TJ provided us with a few surprises to enjoy and play with and I am grateful for his hospitality." "This vacation was unlike an other. The views from the house are majestic. Fun activities from the game nights, trampoline to just hanging on the patio and having a fire with everyone." Kristen did recommend a local couple (Markee & Travis) to have a couple meals cooked for us, along with massages available to the group. Travis is an amazing cook. He prepared meals for the entire group that were just fabulous! Prime rib that melted in our mouths, ribs, sliders that convert a vegetarian... - all just incredible. Markee came onsite in the mornings to start our days with incredible massages. After long days of hiking the national parks & attractions - she had just the perfect touch that kept the group feeling great! We would highly recommend having them for your group. It just made the trip so much more relaxing & enjoyable! The location is pretty remote. It was amazing to sit out in the evening and listening to absolute silence (unless we were all talking). Coming from Boston, New York, & Philly - that was a nice change for a week. Still, it was easy driving to Windcave & Badlands National Parks; Jewel Cave; Mt. Rushmore; Devils Tower; Sturgis; Deadwood; and much more. The only "problem" is deciding to spend your time inside or outside!
This was an amazing stay! The owners treated us like family. They graciously welcomed us into their home. The views from the home are breathtaking, but what made this a memorable stay was the kindness we were shown by the owners, truly remarkable people! And yes, the home was beautiful too.
Our group ranged in age from 4-72 and everyone had a great time. The kitchen was a wonderful gathering area large enough to accommodate us all. The views of the property were very picturesque. The kids loved the ziplines, the hot tub, and all enjoyed sitting by the firepit at night, roasting marshmallows, and singing. The boys spent much time downstairs either in the movie room or game room, younger men used the exercise room, and almost everyone spent a little time in the massage chair. The owners were fabulous and tended to our every need. Each year we take the family to experience a new part of the US. This certainly left a great impression for all of us as we experienced South Dakota for the first time. We highly recommend it!
Kristen was unbelievable — hosting from another continent! Everything about the home and the gathering in it was just as we hoped — particularly when they cued the snow for a white Christmas evening!!
Loftus Lodge is a beautiful setting for a family gathering. Our family of 20 was comfortable in this quiet setting. What a grand view!! The kitchen is well-provisioned with appliances. The outdoor amenities kept us all entertained. The Lodge is close to so many family-oriented activities in the Black Hills. We relaxed and played together, enjoying shared meals in an awe-inspiring space. Thank you for a great stay!
