COUNTRY GUESTHOUSE: Looking for a quiet get away in a country environment close to the Black Hills, Ellsworth Airforce Base, the Event Center and Regional Airport in Rapid City? We are near several attractions including Mt. Rushmore, Reptile Gardens, Bear Country, Badlands, plus many more. We also have several animals on our property including horses, dogs, cats and wildlife such as antelope. It involves a private entrance with a rustic atmosphere and open concept with all modern amenities.

The space
An open concept is provided in a cottage type private building with a front porch for playing outdoor games, grilling on a griddle grill, or sitting and relaxing. Out back we have a deck area with a gas firepit to watch the sunset in the hills. A beautiful handmade log bed is the main sleeping bed with an additional queen size sofa sleeper. A separate area with a smaller double size futon (sleeps 2 smaller children or 1 adult comfortably-otherwise 2 teenagers or 2 adults is a little cozy) is available which also acts as a movie room. The building is less than 5 years old with a newly remodeled bathroom. AC is provided through a window unit during the summer/fall months. A rustic environment is provided with 100 year old table and chairs and a replica of an old farmhouse sink. There is a sitting area with cable TV, a desk area with WiFi, an area for children to sit and play, a small kitchen area with a coffee station, mid-size frig/freezer, snacks, microwave, electric skillet, griddle, toaster, waffle maker, and hotplate with dishes, pans and silverware provided. The bathroom has a hand made rustic vanity with a quarter round shower. In addition, we provide boarding for your horses if you are traveling with your companions or coming to the hills for competitions. Extra charge of $25 per pen with up to 2 horses allowed per pen. Laundry services are available but in a separate location (main house). We live on 80 acres and are about 8 miles from Rapid City, right off I-90. We would be a great fit for transitioning military personal, rodeo individuals or tourists looking to have a relaxing and fun time in the Black Hills of SD. We pride ourselves in providing a clean environment and adhere to Airbnb's enhanced cleaning protocol.

Guest access
You will have full access to the guesthouse, front porch and back deck all to yourself to relax and enjoy. We also have an indoor and outdoor arena for those of you needing to board your horse/s that can be accessed during your stay (outdoor arena is weather permitting).

Other things to note
A pack and play, high chair and/or bassinette can be provided for infants if needed.

We want to thank all of our guests this past year who made our first year a great success! Even though 2020 was a trying year for everyone, the guests we hosted brought a breath of fresh air with each booking. I am a retired K-12 public school Superintendent and my husband is in the mental health profession as a Psychologist. After retiring, I ran a small antique shop for four years. Antiques are my passion with collecting and refinishing antique furniture. Dewey's passion is team roping that he enjoys with our son. We have an outdoor and indoor arena that accommodates them quite well. I decided to convert my antique shop into an Airbnb and we are now celebrating our first year under our belt, earning Superhost status.

During your stay
Our goal is to be available and meet any needs you might have during your stay. We live right next door to the guest house. We pride ourselves in providing a clean place during your stay and are quite resourceful. We hope you would use us to assist in any way you would need while recognizing the need to social distance. We have two dogs and barn cats that stay near our house and love attention. The dogs are older with one being deaf and blind in one eye and the other struggles with arthritis. I also babysit my son's dog and she loves attention even more. Murphy (the cat) has few boundaries and loves to give hugs and kisses so be ware as he knows how to jump on your shoulder from the ground level if you are not paying attention. You are welcome to interact with them but we are certainly willing to contain then in a separate garage if you prefer. We do ask that you watch out for the dogs when leaving and entering our place as they like to run near the tire of vehicles and trailers. If you have toddlers, we also ask you to monitor their interaction with the pets to insure safety for everyone.
