Sleep high atop our butte on our working cattle ranch overlooking Badlands National Park. We've renovated the original family home on the ranch and offer clean guest rooms with a shared bath. Lay in bed and enjoy the amazing view of the Badlands.

The space

Just 15 miles south of interstate 90 come stay with locals who've lived in the Badlands since the old days. Our ranch borders Badlands National Park just 6 miles to the main visitors center. The Bunkhouse sits high atop our butte overlooking the park where it's peaceful, quiet and has spectacular views in all directions. Rooms have a queen bed and are designed for the light traveler looking for clean, homey, no-fuss lodging in the Badlands. While this listing is for a queen room with a shared bath (no breakfast) we have several other lodging options here as well including rooms next door at the B&B sleeping up to 6 people, 2 pet-friendly modern cabins sleeping up to 6 people and an original 1880 homestead camping cabin. Please, no children under the age of 8 allowed at this listing. We do have family-friendly lodging elsewhere on the ranch, please just ask us!

Guest access

The house has AC, free WIFI, full kitchen use, satellite tv and friendly chickens pecking in the yard. Our burros roam the ranch looking for guests to share a snack. You may explore our ranch by taking a walk to the White River or hike out to our original 1880 homestead cabin.

Interaction with guests

We've been in the BNB business for over 15 years and our family has lived on this ranch since the 30's. So we're here to help make your stay in South Dakota a memorable one. Please let us know if we can do anything to make your trip more enjoyable. Rooms at the bunkhouse are self-serving. Hosts do not live IN the same house but we are on property and can be easily contacted if guests have any needs.

We stayed at the Circle View Ranch for one night. It's in a great location for exploring the badlands national park, just near the small town of Interior. It's set out on it's own piece of land and it's really quite stunning! We didn't meet Amy and Phil, but everything was set and ready for us and we really loved staying here. We even had a donkey come say hello at our bedroom window in the morning :-) . Really recommend staying here over any of the motels nearby any day!

This accommodation is very well named. You get a 360o view of the Badlands, the White River and beyond. Amy, Phil and the gang, were great hosts. The room was as described, very clean, good bed and quiet. Use of the Kitchen was very useful as shops and restaurants are in short supply in this remote area, especially on Sunday. The communal breakfast, while an extra cost, was absolutely superb. The quality and variety were better than all the hotels we have stayed at. Plus being communal, you get to meet all the other guests in a friendly atmosphere. We thoroughly recommend this Airbnb to anyone visiting the Badlands or just passing through.

As soon as we arrived at the ranch we felt at home. It is such a wonderful place. Our only regret is staying one night, we made sure we had breakfast there and it was our best breakfast of the trip, definitely need the sausage gravy recipe. We are already dreaming of returning. Definitely recommend.

Great location just minutes away from Badlands National Park. The property was beautiful. Upon arrival there was no one in the lobby so we rang the bell. A man arrived that wasn't very welcoming. He checked us in but offered very little information about where to go or how to get in. Once we finally got where we needed to be the house was very nice. The rooms were much closer than I expected and once the other guests arrived it was pretty disruptive. Rooms are very clean. We did not interact with the hosts after check in.

Staying out here was a great choice. Amy and her family are lovely and friendly. The house is very comfortable and has great views of the surrounding area. Awesome stars by the firepit :-) the kitchen is fully stocked so feel free to bring food (cheaper outside of Interior though as its a very small town). Petrol/gas in Interior is expensive so fill up before arriving if you can. We ate at the Wagon Wheel a few min away and the food was good and beer cheap. There is another bar, Horseshoe, that also had cheap beer but was a bit grittier in feel. Definitely suggest getting to the accomodation BEFORE sunset as there is minimal lighting and you may get lost if you do not. Totally recommend staying here!
