My husband and I needed some quiet time. This was the perfect place to stay. We were greeted by Jenny and cookies. The room was comfortable and so was the bed. The hot tub was clean and warm. Breakfast was the best ever with more than we could eat. We enjoyed an afternoon reading and playing pool on the front... More

There is no better place to stay in DeSmet. We were visiting the Little House on the Prairie sites with our five children this summer and DeSmet was a major attraction for us. The bed and breakfast was just perfect. We stayed in the Americana Medley room which had a Murphy bed as well as two double beds - providing... More

This B&B is housed in the former home of "Banker Ruth" from Laura Ingalls Wilder days, and has a pleasant atmosphere and peaceful decor. The owners Jenny & Andy are incredibly kind people who truly open their home to their guests. A... More

This place was great. Loved the Japanese garden sweet. The jacuzzi was sweet. Super relaxing environment. Breakfast was the bomb. Loved the little man pancakes. Loved the treats every afternoon. The hosts were great people who truly love there guests. I can't wait to book our next trip here.

It just doesn't get better than Prairie House Manor for comfort, hospitality and the warm and welcoming manner of owners Andy and Jenny. My sister-in-law, 8-year old niece and I stayed on a recent July Saturday. On the second floor, I was in the Bird Song room and my sis-in-law had the Here's My Heart room. Rooms were beautifully decorated... More

The Prairie House Manor is an ideal place for family reunions, weekend getaways, business meetings, or to get in the “Laura” mood while in De Smet touring the Little House attractions. It is also perfect if you are looking for a place to stay in De Smet during The Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant. The Prairie House Manor is just 3... More

Look no further for lodging in De Smet. Prairie House Manor is easy to locate, within walking distance of Laura Ingalls Wilder historical sites, and is a very pleasant place to stay. The home is decorated in a period style appropriate to the history of De Smet. Our room was fantastic. Clearly Andy and Jenny have carefully thought through every... More

What a charming and gorgeous home! The owners are incredibly friendly and hospitable. The breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed the little personal touches such as the Laura Ingalls trivia book on the table. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and if ever we come to DeSmet again we will definitely stay here again!

My daughter and 6 yr old granddaughter and I loved our stay at this B&B! Andy and Jenny are the perfect hosts and Jenny is an excellent chef. We stayed in the "Forever Blossoms" room and enjoyed the hot tub. We highly recommend this B&B AND a visit to De Smet if you are a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan. Coming... More

We have just returned from a 5-night trip to De Smet to visit relatives there and in nearby Brookings, where my husband was born. We have stayed at the Manor a number of times before, in different suites, and have always felt so comfortable and at home. Choosing this place over a hotel is a no-brainer -- it offers SO... More
