About this listing

King bedroom on the third floor with some antique furnishings, over-bed vintage lamps, private mini-fridge, and view of the Presidential District. The private en suite bathroom has a tiled walk-in shower and single-sink vanity.

The space

Our historic 1899 Queen Anne home in Deadwood, South Dakota runs as a full-service bed and breakfast during the summer, and as a house we're happy to share with guests during the winter.

The house is in the Presidential District (all the streets in the neighborhood are named after American presidents), which is one of the oldest 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 seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. It has original woodwork and stained glass, but the plumbing and heating are all (thankfully) new. It was constructed in 1899 by H.B. Wardman, a Deadwood businessman 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 the home's music conservatory on the third floor. This room has been recently refinished bedroom and features peaked ceilings and a private en suite bath. It's a good climb up two flights of stairs, but the view out the windows over the neighborhood and toward the surrounding hills is worth it. There's one king bed in this space, plus a dresser and a large-screen television with cable and Roku. Other bedrooms 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. There are several unpainted walls, a few unfinished pieces of trim, and the kitchen is straight out of the 1970s. If you don't mind a few rough spots, it's a beautiful historic home to stay in.

Because it's an old neighborhood with limited space, parking can be tricky. There are usually plenty of on-street spaces nearby, however, as long as you don't mind parking on a bit of a hill.

Guest access

In addition to your room, most of the first floor is common space. There are two sitting rooms - one with a large-screen TV, one with a gas fireplace - and a formal dining room with a large oak table. There are also two covered porches with seating areas and a small patio with outdoor dining table.

Interaction with guests

We're a very low-key place. We love chatting with guests, but being introverts, we also know that some guests really prefer their privacy. If you'd rather be in your quiet space by yourself, no problem! If, on the other hand, you'd like to chat about Deadwood history and play a game of Settlers of Catan with us, we're usually on board with that, too.

Other things to note

Breakfast is provided during the summer months, June 1 through September 30, and during special events in the winter (New Year's weekend, Valentine's weekend, Mardi Gras weekend, St. Pat's weekend). Winter reservations (October 1 through May 31) do not include breakfast, though hot coffee and tea are always available. We can often arrange for breakfast during the winter for an extra fee. Please send us a note if you'd like more information!

Great place! Rooms are warm, authentically decorated but modern, and spotlessly clean. Good wifi and Roku TV, walking distance to everything and lovely hosts. Great experience in Deadwood!

The 1899 Inn is a beautiful place, with so many great features it truly was amazing to step into the home for the first time and look at the craftsmanship of literally everything. Dustin was a great host that communicated wonderfully. The attic room (Jane's Room as it so mysteriously states on the door. Please never get rid of that. It most definitely added to the experience and wonder of the home/room) my girlfriend and I stayed in was just what we envisioned it would be when we booked our stay. We will look to stay here again upon our return to Deadwood in the future! Thank you Dustin!!

Amazing B&B. My husband and I stayed in The Attic Room, which featured a king size bed and our own bathroom. The room and bath were very clean, plenty of towels and the shower accessories were very helpful (shampoo, conditioner, body wash). Laura cooked breakfast in the morning (for an additional charge that was WELL WORTH IT); pastries and fruit were also provided. Dustin and Laura are amazing hosts, friendly and extremely accommodating. We are planning on visiting the area again and will definitely be staying here.

Wonderful facility, very convenient to the town, but away from the hustle and bustle. Super comfortable bed. Very welcoming hosts, with lots of advice on how to squeeze more out of our limited time in Deadwood.

Dustin and Laura's bed and breakfast was super nice! They were both very friendly and our room was comfortable and palatial, wish we could have stayed longer!

Dustin and Laura are great hosts: very friendly and helpful. Their home was welcoming and so historical, very thoughtfully restored. We had a great room and bath on the 3rd floor. It's an attic space but roomy, just watch your head! But we appreciate the quiet and privacy up there. There are two large windows and a peaceful view of the neighborhood. The room was super clean and plenty of towels and extras. The location is great. It's an easy walk to Main Street without having the noise and crowds. There's a sweet little park a block way. Breakfast is available and homemade delicious. My husband and I enjoyed our all to short stay in Deadwood, and we thank Dustin and Laura for being wonderful hosts and their lovely home.

Dustin User ProfileDustin is a superhost.

Ad guy, retired travel writer, and Futurama aficionado. Married to hot archeologist. Benevolent overlord at TDG Communications, a PR & ad agency in Deadwood, South Dakota.

My wife and I moved into our house in 2010, after the home had been foreclosed on and left vacant for about three years. We've gotten the major stuff taken care of (roof, foundation, plumbing), and now we've moved on to the fun stuff: trim, stained glass, lighting and the like. Five years down, 15 more to go.

Since we have this giant house and it's just the two of us (and the cats), we figure we should share the extra space. We started hosting on AirBnB in 2010, and in 2012 we became officially licensed as a Bed & Breakfast. We love giving visitors a place to stay that has the character to match the history and legends that Deadwood is known for.
