2020 Guests, Please Read

If we are blessed to have you as our guests this 2020 tourist season

(with the assumption that COVID-19 is at least mostly behind us),

we will, as we feel is necessary, still have contingency plans

for operating Mountains To Prairies with a safe format.

These flexible plans primarily are as follows:

  1. Call us when you arrive.
  2. We will greet you on the phone, and via social distancing guide you to your accommodation.
  3. There, we will brief you without us entering. On the table inside, you will find a Black Hills map and instructions pertaining to certain amenities.
  4. If you would like itinerary assistance or if you have any questions, we encourage you to call us using the number provided.
  5. If you are one of our breakfast guests (B&B), we will bring your breakfast at the prescribed time to a table provided at your exterior entrance, or in the case of Woodsy Suite to the table in the foyer. From there you may carry it inside your accommodation or enjoy an outdoors breakfast (instructions provided on arrival). You also may choose to opt out of breakfast for a lower rate. Read ABOUT BREAKFAST here!
  6. Sanitizer and/or wipes will be part of your amenities.
  7. The beauty of a Black Hills vacation is that it is mostly an outside experience!
