Yak Ridge is only a short drive from Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, Sheridan Lake, Pactola Reservoir, Mickelson Trail, 1 8 8 0 Train, Bear Country, Reptile Gardens, caves, museums, and many other area attractions.
Enjoy beautiful mountain and meadow views. Wildlife abounds on our ten acre property. Frequent guests include deer, song birds, turkeys, hawks, and chipmunks. Occasionally bald eagles, elk, coyotes, owls, marmots, and fox also visit the property. Yak Ridge is located at an elevation of 5,000 feet providing for cool evenings and star studded skies.
We acquired the property in 2014 and named it Yak Ridge in honor of our small yak herd and for the hillside's resemblance to the ridge on the back of a yak. The farmstead is home to honey bees, chickens, and even a small herd of Himalayan yaks.
Yak Ridge is located on the west central edge of Eagle Mountain recognizable by its rock outcrop peak. Bald Eagles have historically nested in the area and are often seen soaring the skies.
During Prohibition, our corner of the Ranch was known as Whiskey Gulch. Remnants of old bootlegger roads and the spring that cooled the whiskey still can be found on Forest Service property adjacent to Yak Ridge.
Looking for additional space? Yak Ridge also offers two other 2-bedroom cabin, which sleep up to 6, and a studio cabin which sleeps up to 4. The cabins share the same general area of our ten acre property, but have plenty of space between cabins for privacy.

Guests have access to their private cabin and access to the ten acre property. Tours of the adjacent Yak Ridge Farmstead can be arranged.

Jim and Julie are you hosts. We are blessed to have lived in the Black Hills for more than 20 years. They raised their two sons (now grown) in the the area and together have enjoyed hiking, biking, swimming, boating, camping, fishing, hunting, rock climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, exploring, and so much more of what the Black Hills have to offer. Jim and Julie have traveled extensively in the US and abroad. Although hotels are often a good lodging option, Jim and Julie appreciate the specialty lodging that Airbnb has to offer. Julie is a native South Dakotan. Her great great grandparents homestead in eastern South Dakota in the 1880s.
