We have several rooms available in our historic 1899 Queen Anne home in Deadwood, South Dakota. The house is in the Presidential District (all the streets in the neighborhood are named after American presidents), which is one of the oldest and most prestigious quarters in the city. No more than a five-minute walk from the important stuff, including the casinos and historic buildings on Main Street, the Adams Museum and the Mickelson Trail. The Adams House is just five houses over (you can catch the Deadwood trolley there), and Mount Moriah Cemetery, the final resting place of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane, is a few minutes walk to the top of our hill.
The home itself is one of the biggest Victorians built in Deadwood, with five bedrooms and four bathrooms. It has original woodwork and stained glass, but the plumbing and heating are all (thankfully) new. It was constructed in (phone number hidden) by H.B. Wardman, one of those rich-but-never-famous Deadwood businessmen who was mayor of the town in the 1920s. The house still has a lot of the original fixtures and 19th century technology (call bells, gas lighting fixtures, etc.).
This listing is for our second-floor bedroom - the old maid's quarters. This room is a little smaller than the other bedrooms in the house, but has a queen-size bed and dresser with mirror. Views are of the historic barn next door and meadow behind the house. The newly renovated bathroom isn't en suite - it's a short walk down the hall - and it has a large clawfoot tub and heated tile floor. Other bedrooms in the house are available as their own Airbnb listing.
Full disclosure: the house is in the process of being restored, and some areas of the house aren't fully fixed yet. Expect some unpainted walls, some pieces of unfinished trim and a kitchen straight out of the 1970s.
Because it's an old neighborhood with limited space, parking can be tricky. There may be a small space available on the street; if not, there's a free city parking lot that's a three-minute walk down the hill.
The hosts are very friendly and the house is amazing. The location is great just a short walk to main street. Would definitely stay there again.

The Old Maid's Room was comfy and quiet! It was the perfect place to come "home" to during our Sturgis Bike Rally week!
Helpful and hospitable hosts, comfortable room, shortest of walks to the small town business district.
Dustin and Laura were amazing hosts! We loved their house and all they had to offer us. We felt like we were staying with friends, which was so nice. What a great first Airbnb experience! Thanks guys! :)
Great place in a great town! What a pleasant surprise on a cross-country road trip. Thanks so much - I'd love to host D&L any time.
AirBnB was made for situations like this!
Beautiful and charming home. I really enjoyed staying in Deadwood, and would recommend this place to anybody.
Awesome experience! Dustin and Laura and very gracious hosts -- warm, friendly, and welcoming. The house is gorgeous and a pleasure to stay in. Walking distance to both downtown and Mt. Moriah cemetery. Would definitely stay again.
Dustin and Laura have done a commendable job on the restoration of their period home in Deadwood. They are wonderful hosts and we do appreciate their warmth and hospitality. I especially appreciate the large fruit bowl for guests. The bed was comfortable and the bath beautiful. We will stay here again!
