High Country Guest Ranch

Where wedding dreams come true

The High Country Guest Ranch is the ideal location for your ranch wedding! Our serene mountain meadow provides the perfect backdrop for your special day, spring, summer, fall or winter! Dakota Hall, our indoor dining hall has decorative string lighting and can seat up to 285 people for your ceremony or reception. Outdoors, Ponderosa pines and the Mickelson Trail provide a scenic backdrop to the High Country Theater, which also seats 285 guests. In addition, we have a large grassy area overlooking the pond, which can accommodate a white wedding tent.

The surrounding hills and ranch setting provide a long list of picturesque backdrops to create the most stunning wedding photos. As a gift from High Country, the bride and groom receive one night in our romantic log honeymoon cabin (based on availability) on your wedding weekend. Choose from our other vacation homes and cabins for your wedding party to get ready for the big day. High Country has catering services onsite, and also allows outside caterers.

Your guests will love the convenience of spacious log vacation homes and smaller cabins available for nightly rentals. During the summer months, there are a number of activities that will keep your guests happy without ever leaving the ranch. Located 4 miles west of Hill City, we are conveniently located in the ‘Heart of the Hill’s, only 14 miles from Mount Rushmore. Make your Black Hills wedding a memory that will last a lifetime!
