The best part of our De Smet experience was the Prairie House Manor. We stayed in the Forever Blossoms room. It has an adjoining private porch complete with jacuzzi hot tub. The rooms were cozy, tastefully decorated and full of old world charm. The flat screen TV is a nice added touch, as well as the full size murphy bed.... More

This is a very nice Inn owned by Andy and Jenny Todd. It is a nice house with full accomodations, and knowledgable and friendly hosts. Our room was small but with a full in room bath. There was a TV and fridge in the room. The home is very warm and welcoming. There is a game room with pool table.... More

We loved spending the time in De Smet. Being at this bed and breakfast just added to the experience of the town. Pool passes were helpful for kids. The place is very beautiful, and the Todd family was very nice and helpful. We stayed in the American Medley room in order to have three beds. The third bed turned out... More

UP SIDE: B&B was very clean. Plenty of towels, nice flat-screen TV, mini-fridge very handy. Fun being down the street from Pa Ingalls' last home. Egg breakfast entrees very tasty. DOWN SIDE; When booking the Rose Garden suite they mentioned we had to go through the smaller bedroom to get to the bathroom. Hmm. The day bed is actually separated... More

My 8 year old daughter and I stayed at The Prairie House on a pilgrimage to Laura Ingalls Wilder sites. It was a great choice. The hosts and their family were all very nice, polite and helpful without being overwhelming. The twin bedroom wasn't big, but the attached private bath was, so there was plenty of room for our stuff.... More

We stayed at the Prairie House while stopping overnight to visit the Ingalls Homestead, which was great. We are a family of 4 with 2 young girls. The room was great and the beds were comfortable. The new owners are recent east coast transplants and they shared with us their story of how they made the move to De Smet.... More

We stayed at the Prairie House Manor on a pageant weekend. The owners were warm and gracious and have done a great job remodeling the inn. We stayed in the Japanese Garden room and our cousins stayed in another of the rooms. Breakfast was excellent and the lady of the house is knowledgable on all things Ingalls. We felt at... More

We stayed at the Prairie House B&B with two families (5 in each family) and it was great! Our kids were right at home playing with all the toys on the front porch while the adults sat and relaxed. We stayed in the "My Rose Garden" and "American Meldly" rooms and there was plenty of room for all of us.... More

The new owners had only been on the job for 5 weeks when we stayed here for one night during the pagent. They are very friendly, and accommodated every request we had ~ even giving us their own table at breakfast since we asked to be served earlier than we had originally planned. Our family of 4 stayed in the... More
