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.

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

5 on June 28, 2014

The Prairie House Manor was the best Bed and Breakfast I have stayed in. We were welcomed by one of the owners upon arrival. They told us where everything was located and took us to our recently renovated room. It was very comfortable and nicely decorated with a Bird theme. There was fresh lemonade, coffee and baked treats downstairs. We enjoyed these while playing checkers and tic tac toe on the breezy front porch. They had maps and info on the town attractions. Slept great in comfy beds. Homemade breakfast in the morning was amazing! I highly recommend this place to anyone staying in De Smet.

Granddaughter and I stayed in the Bird Song room. It was so neatly decorated in a bird theme. The private bath was HUGE with all the amenities. Our hosts were warm and welcoming...even when we arrived at 11 at night! They also were helpful in giving maps of sightseeing Little House on the Prairie sites.


I Am At Home!

I was greeted with a smile and that smile continued until I got into my car to leave, which I did not want to leave. The extras that were available made my stay even better; like a pool pass at the nearby hotel and a pitcher of homeade lemonade in the fridge. The room was amazing!
