What a Nice Treat!

5 on September 20, 2013

My husband, daughter and I happened upon this place on a road trip from St. Louis to Mount Rushmore and stopped here before the final leg. Nicole, the owner was so cool and down to earth. She told us about a wonderful downtown restaurant that we could go to by walking! The location is perfect. It's next door to the Pettigrew mansion, a home to tour. Sioux Falls is going through a renaissance and the dining options are keeping pace. We enjoyed our stay so much that we made sure to stop again before heading to Chicago. We ended up at another great restaurant and did some cool things in town with our 8 year old. By the way, it's a child friendly inn with a cute wooden playground for the little ones to burn off some steam.

A lovely surprise in Sioux Falls' Historic District

This fabulous Victorian home has many wonderful details, e.g the wood floors, trim, doors. Our individual room was spacious and had a private bathroom. An old fashioned soaking tub was a treat. Nicole is a perfect owner for a B&B, being very welcoming, full of information about the house, down to earth, and a good cook. The home is within walking distance of a re-vitalized downtown with good restaurants and interesting shops. It was quite alive with a street musician when we were there on a Friday night. We would definitely recommend this visit.

A disappointment!!!

What a HUGE disappointment to my friends who visited for their forty years of marriage!! A present from their children. Rails weren't on, electrical hanging out of the sockets and in fact they were scared most of the night. A place they should have asked for their money back.

A lovely setting!!

This review is long overdue, but wanted to take a moment to rave about this home. I held an event at the house, rented the entire house for 24 hours and then again stayed there for 3 nights about 4 months after my initial event...also with the entire home for my group. I love the space; rooms are unique and funky and the colors are rich and compliment the beautiful architecture. Bathrooms are elegant and functional. We cooked dinners and even hosted folks for a brunch. It was nice to have a large, inviting space to spread out in and entertain (bring your own cooking/serving supplies!). The innkeeper was not around, which was actually appropriate for our use of the space, but I did get the impression she didn't love dealing with guests...probably a turn off for some! If only she was as charming as the B&B itself...regardless, I will absolutely return!

Fantastic Victorian - Don't Skip This Place when Traveling

What a grand ol' place! Nicely decorated, comfortable and plenty of charm. We were left to do own own thing, which is what we were looking for. Situated very nicely within walking distance to main street downtown which offered specialty shops and cafes.

I used the B&B for a birthday gathering utilized the whole house. The innkeeper provide appetizers that where excellent along with an elegant breakfast. The rooms are decorated in period fashion and the private bath was welcomed. I enjoyed the quaint home setting for hosting family and friends.
