Welcome to the Black Forest Inn

Where we treat you as a guest but you feel right at home

The Black Forest Inn is nestled in the heart of the Black Hills of South Dakota. You could even say… the ideal location for an inn. We are located just a few miles from Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorials. We are within minutes of Pactola Lake and Sheridan Lake where you can enjoy fishing and water recreation. We are centrally located for hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, golfing, ATV trails, snowmobilling and all the other summer and winter sports. When your day of playing and exploring is done, come back and unwind in your beautiful room.

Although we have a Rapid City address, we are located approximately 30 minutes from downtown Rapid City. You can find us among the pine trees just 12 miles north of Hill City.

Meet the new owners of Black Forest Inn!

Welcome! We are Ryan and Jodi Frisk and the new owners of the Black Forest Inn!! We are MN grown and so excited to be in the heart of the Black Hills, just minutes from stunning Lake Pactola and call this our home. We felt called here and come with great respect for the area and the history of these beautiful hills as well as the history of the Inn and hope to honor both. 

We love and have a passion for people (especially kids as we have 21 nieces and nephews), hosting, small businesses, art, architecture, sports, adventure, animals, the amazing world we live in and the Creator of it all!! 

Our redesigns and renovations at the Inn have been completed and we are now fully open. Check out our Black Forest Inn Facebook to see all the changes. 

We have created a beautifully updated and comfortable place for you to rest and retreat, for weddings and events, fun and adventure, to reconnect with family, friends, yourself, and the stunning world around us!

We are proud to have reopened with a fresh new look and feel and look forward to hosting you in the near future!!

Love from the Black Hills,

- Ryan & Jodi
