One of the Hills’ newest lodges (built in 2006) has lovely balcony views of Washington and Jefferson’s profiles on Mount Rushmore. The spacious lobby makes a good gathering place and nicely frames that view, too. The 96-room lodge sits five minutes from Mount Rushmore and even closer to the touristy hubbub of downtown Keystone. Kids can find all the cheap souvenirs, ice cream and fudge they want in downtown, but the lodge is fortunately tucked away on a side road up on a hill. It feels more kickback than hustle-bustle.
