What a great, positive experience at Gate City Events & Lodging. The Rutten family treated us like THEIR family for our son's wedding. The main house is gorgeous, the motel rooms spacious and clean. The event center was a perfect place for the reception. The grounds were immaculately kept for the outdoor ceremony and we were blessed with a beautiful Fall day.
Thank you, Tom and

Perfect place for a large family get together! Some stayed in house, some camper, some stayed in motel rooms. Everybody had a great time! Lawn is huge, great for a family game of kickball! Highly recommend!

I like to give credit due where it's due. I'm passing through the town of Canton South Dakota on highway 18 hitch hiking. I stopped and got a room for the night. I had the opportunity to meet the Owner named Tom I found him to be a totally genuine nice person. Very polite and outright nice people. This is a beautiful little campground and town as well. The Motel here is awesome Folks passing through the town of Canton please don't pass this place up. Let's support our mom and pop American run small businesses and give them all the business they can get. Thumbs up to a great place and awesome
owner Tom.

As a wedding planner, I am always thrilled to find an amazing and affordable venue with a staff that goes above and beyond. That is exactly what Gate City provided for my couple and their group. Having on-site
lodging wasan extra bonus.

AMAZING VENUE! Gate City was so great to work with for my wedding weekend. We took advantage of staying onsite in the beautiful home that you can rent. It is STUNNING!! Clean, cozy and so convenient. We planned on getting married outside, but due to the rain, we had to make a last minute decision to move it inside to the reception area. Gate City was so accommodating and helpful. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding weekend. Amazing, kind people. I would recommend to anyone looking to have their big day there or just looking to rent the house for a group getaway. You won't be disappointed.
