We stayed overnight at this b&b while traveling cross country. We got a decent room and breakfast but pretty sad service. The innkeeper barely welcomed us and had no information about anything "little house" related. Even the gas station at the corner had maps of relevant touristy buildings. It was not worth the price of room (Laura's loft $175) for... More

We stayed at the Heritage House in the Jacob Suite for two nights recently and really enjoyed our stay. The property has been beautifully restored; the decor is time appropriate but also comfortable. We had a two room suite - one bedroom with a queen bed and one room with a pull out sofabed. Both were very comfortable and the... More

We were in the Laura's Loft...two bedrooms with living room and loft with twin. Great location, easy parking, good breakfast (pancakes one day and french toast the next), and attentive owner. It was something to look out the side window and know that you are looking at the spot (but not the building) where the Ingalls endured the Long Winter.... More

My daughter found thus B&B online and booked it for the last stop of our road trip on the "Laura Ingalls Wilder Trail". The proprietor, who has deep roots in the De Smet community, has restored one of the oldest buildings in town with great care and excellent taste. Period antiques and accessories spark the imagination, while modern comforts and... More

We are from South Dakota and purchased a night's stay at the Heritage House at a benefit auction. We absolutely had a wonderful time there! The hosts were VERY accommodating and treated us special! The room was beautiful and the breakfast was delicious! They did everything to make us comfortable! Would love to stay again even though it was only... More

The owners have turned an old bank into a wonderful inn. The main floor houses a large parlor, where you can glimpse the original bank vault, turned into a minuscule office. All of the guest rooms are on the second floor. There is no elevator, so you must hoist your bags up the ornate (albeit narrow, winding) staircase. We stayed... More

We stayed in the Laura's Loft room while visiting...what else...the Laura Ingalls Wilder sites in town. Fabulous room with four rooms - two bedrooms, loft bedroom, sitting room, as well as a modern bathroom. For the price, the room was amazing. In any other town, this room would go for a lot more. The decorations are beautiful. The breakfast was... More

We had a wonderful experience staying in this beautifully restored building filled with fine period furniture and accessories but having completely modern and elegant bathroom facilities. Superb workmanship and attention to detail. Perfectly hospitable and accommodating. Hostess Kim deserves 10 stars for creating such a great experience for visitors. Do yourself a favor and stay here for an extra night!

We stayed here on a recent visit to De Smet in order to visit the Laura Ingalls Homestead with our daughter and her friend. We found the bed and breakfast to be very convenient (walking distance to some Ingalls activities), very clean, family friendly and a decent value. We enjoyed our hosts, Kim and Carl and are very impressed with... More

A wonderful restored bank converted to a beautiful B & B. It took kim and Carl years of restoration work to bring this old bank into a lovely Victorian building. Hostess, Kim, was just like family. Our room was very comfortable and we were provided with a delicious breakfast. It was just a short drive to Laura Ingalls Wilder homestead.... More
