Our Story

We’re Tammy and Cine.  Cine was raised in Keystone with her 12 siblings — most of whom still live in the area today.  Tammy grew up across the border in Wyoming, but always felt the Black Hills were her home.  They returned to Keystone in summers while Tammy was in Graduate School and relocated back to the area permanently when they purchased Battle Creek Lodge in 2011. 

We both are very welcoming and eager to meet new people and to make your stay as much fun and comfortable as possible. Our lodge is meant to be a home away from home.

Even though we like to keep our lodge attached to its heritage, we update it every year before summer in terms of services and appliances to be suitable to our regular year-to-year guests and to new ones. We work hard so Battle Creek Lodge becomes your home on vacation.

Thank you so much for deciding to stay in our lodge, which is also our home. You can contact us from 9am to 7pm, if it is an emergency please call us anytime, we will be happy to assist you. Living in Keystone means walking through streets of American history, museum rich with original and important works of art, all objects of beauty.
