About

Our home belonged to, Banker Thomas Ruth, one of the characters in the Little House books that Michael Landon made popular in Little House on the Prairie series. We love to have families come and enjoy the town that author Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote about. Our home is open all year. Rooms are decorated with antiques but have all luxury of the present (TV, air conditioned, private baths await you) for a restful evening. The morning brings the aroma of waffles, French toast,omelletes, pancakes and even a pancake man. Fresh fruit and juice are always served with a smile between 7:30 and 9:00 AM. We will look forward to your arrival in De Smet, South Dakota. The little town on The Prairie. We have 2 in-room jacuzzi's in two of our 1st level rooms. Japanese Garden and Forever Blossoms. Try one out for that special week-end or evening. Great Luxury for a reasonable price.

A delightful stay.

The Prairie House Manor provides the perfect lodging for De Smet. The house is spacious and lovely, and the innkeepers offer many little extras for their guests' comfort and enjoyment. Hot beverages are always available, treats provided in the evening, and guests are given choices for their breakfast (all delicious); and guests can also choose their own time for breakfast I choose to stay in a small room, which did not have room for a desk or table, so a lap desk was provided. The inn is two doors down from the house Charles Ingalls built, and in easy walking distance of everything in town. Guests have access to books and DVDs about the Ingalls family. Highly recommended.

We had a delightful stay at the Prairie House Manor. We met a nice couple from England staying the same night. The house was very comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed using our hot tub after a day of walking. We'd reccomend anyone staying.


Pleasant B&B

We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip to see Laura Ingalls Wilder sites. Absolutely beautiful house with gorgeous bedrooms! Andy & Jenny were wonderful and absolute gracious hosts. Jenny has a paper with breakfast choices and what time you'd like breakfast on it that you fill out the night before and she has breakfast ready for you when you come down. The food is absolutely wonderful! I would highly recommend staying here!!
