Beautiful B&B inside an old bank in De Smet. Our room was quiet, quaint, and comfortable with high ceilings. The innkeepers were extremely nice and we loved chatting with them during breakfast. Would definitely return!

Kim and her husband have done a fabulous job restoring this beautiful old bank building as a delightful bed & breakfast. The family suite upstairs was great for our family of 5, and Kim vooked us a delicious breakfast in the morning. Everything was perfectly clean, neat, and convenient. This is the place to stay if you're visiting DeSmet!

The heritage house owners are very nice and informative. This old converted bank is beautifully decorated and very clean. We had the suite with the loft which my son loved. The suite has loads of space including a sitting room and large bathroom. It was wonderful to have so much room after being in so many cramped hotel rooms on... More

Beautifully remodeled old bank. We stayed in the Laura's Loft room, and it was just perfect. Extremely clean room and very spacious, with a lovely sitting room and two nice-sized bedrooms. The loft was small but very comfortable and cozy, and contained a twin size bed with a table and lamp for one extra person. Kim, the owner, greeted us... More

Nicely remodeled old bank. The owners are very very nice and like to visit. The breakfast was nicely done. I would have given a 5 if the bed weren't so hard. The matress feels like sleeping on the floor, the shower is very small also. The room is spacious and nicely laid out though. Quiet which is very important too.... More

We visited De Smet on our way to Mt. Rushmore because having read most of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books to the kids, seemed like a great road-trip stop. Heritage House Bed & Breakfast is a great family place to stay. We were in Laura's Loft.The room was very clean and decorated themed as a period look from the late... More

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
