Pretty basic B&B i De Smet but not a lot of options. House was clean and quiet and bedroom was small but comfortable. Bathroom was very small with a basic gate as the door--my wife did not like it. Living room and porch were nice. Breakfast was good--fruit cup, coffee, and basic omelet (little dry, veggies too finely diced). Overall... More

We stayed here about 7 years ago when Andy and Jenny had just taken over. We enjoyed the place so much we wanted to stay there again when a family event brought us back to De Smet.The house is beautifully maintained and Jenny cooks up a wonderful breakfast every morning. This is the place to stay, especially if bringing kids... More

At the end of our Laura Ingalls Wilder tour we arrived in De Smet on a very warm day after camping out for several days. We were in need of comfort and freezer space. We found it in this wonderful B&B. The home is of historic interest to Wilder fans but it was the warmth and hospitality of the family... More

I highly recommend staying at the Prairie House B&B! Our hosts were welcoming and friendly, without being overbearing. The lodgings were very nice. Our room was clean, cute and comfortable. Our breakfast was delicious! I had a tasty omelette and my sister had delicious cheesecake stuffed French Toast. Both of our meals began with a lovely fruit salad and a... More

A stay in the historic Prairie House Manor is an experience every visitor to De Smet should be lucky enough to enjoy. Built in the early 1890s by “Banker Ruth” of the Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, it has been maintained in all its Victorian splendor. No matter how historic a bed and breakfast may... More

My teenage daughter and I stayed at the Prairie House Manor for 2 nights. Our stay was absolutely perfect! Jenny and Andy greeted us right away- very friendly and made us feel so welcome. Our room "Forever Blossoms" was very clean- the bed, pillows, and sheets were very comfortable. A great place to relax! The breakfasts were absolutely the best-... More

I have stayed at Prairie House manor many times now. The place is charming, beautiful, comfortable, and spacious. The breakfast (a pancake man for me!) is delicious. I love hanging out on the glass porch with friends late into the night. I have traveled with just my family in a small room, and with a group of friends in a... More

Andy provided excellent recommendations for dinner, and also advice on how best to see the Laura Ingalls Wilder sites. Breakfast was delicious. All in all the manor was a charming and... More

We pulled in late and left early, and found the Prairie House Manor to be mostly comfortable and convenient. It was filled with Laura Ingalls Wilder information, memorabilia, and books, so fans of hers would be right at home. Upstairs is quiet, but the Japanese Garden room on the first floor right by the front door was loud with people... More
