My daughter and I stayed during the week, Andy and Jenny were wonderful hosts. Our second floor room was spotless, roomy and on a very hot day, delightfully cool. 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

Our family was in town for the Laura Ingalls events and had the great pleasure of staying here. Andy and Jenny are amazing hosts. All the right touches to make this a recommended place to relax after a fun day. You will start out your day the right way with a wonderful breakfast. We highly recommend the Prairie House Manor...

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

We accidentally wound up at Prairie House Manor. A mix up with camping reservations at the Ingalls Homestead left us without a place to stay: a queer couple with a toddler. We booked the Rose Garden room before I noticed that business notes it's a Christian dedicated business. I was worried; however my worry was needless. The room itself was... More

The owners were very accommodating for our late arrival and early rising. The bed got high marks from me because it was soft and cozy and the bedding/sheets were great. Breakfast was delicious of blueberry cream cheese pancakes and melon. Nice landscaping. We were in town on business and would stay there again.

Nice people and place and no complaints about the room, food or knowledge of LIW but when on vacation, you wouldn't expect to hear orders from the inn keepers about 1. Keeping the hot tub towels separate from the regular use (wouldn't that be the inn keeper's job instead of the vacationer?) and 2. NOT using the coffee. They asked... More

Our family of four stayed in the American Medley room. The beds were comfortable. The location is good for walking around town. We enjoyed the games on the porch. The owners are very friendly. Breakfast was delicious.

They made us feel at home right away. The food was excellent. They gave us breakfast choices the night before so that we could each have what we wanted for breakfast. Our room had a whirlpool tub and our own private bath. Perfect location--only a couple doors down from the Ingall's house. Highly recommend.

My mother and I stayed here while doing a Little House on the Prairie tour the last week in May. The Prairie House Manor is just beautiful. Andy and Jen were great and breakfast was wonderful. It's two doors down from the Ingalls home in town and you can walk to the museum and to the downtown area. We only... More

My daughter and I wanted a little time to explore DeSmet and the places that we read about in the Little House on the Prairie books. Never having stayed in a bed and breakfast before, I was hesitant to stay at the Prairie House Manor. Andy and Jenny made us feel welcome and comfortable from the beginning of our visit... More
