You will love our log cabins, cottages and motel in Hill City, the Heart of The Hills.  We are just a 2 block walk to downtown, where you can explore many attractions, entertainment, shopping and dining choices – and just a short drive to the major sites, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Needles Highway & the Cathedral Spires and Custer State Park.  We can help you plan your day trips, where you will visit the “must see” attractions as well as discover the “hidden gems!”  We will keep you up to date on any Special Events going on in the area.

In our 7th year as resort owners, we offer 3 deluxe motel rooms, 6 log cabins and 2 adjoining cottages/duplex with varying amenities, and an overall laid back and quiet atmosphere.  We take pride in maintaining a super-clean property with new, comfortable beds with quilts, heat & A/C units, fully-equipped kitchens, and gas & charcoal grills.  You can relax at the end of the day in our hot tub or share stories around the fire pit (we provide the firewood!).  Wi-Fi, a strong Verizon cell phone signal and cable TV are available if you want to keep in-touch with your world.

“Trails End Cabins & Motel is a special find.  Once you’ve experienced our log cabins, we’re confident you’ll want to return year after year for your Black Hills vacation.”
