Steever House Bed and Breakfast

46850 276th St. , Lennox, SD 57039 USA (Show map)


Surrounded by farmland under a wide prairie sky, we welcome you to the plains of eastern South Dakota. Our suites have king-sized beds, fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. The queen rooms have private baths and queen-sized beds. We serve a full, hot breakfast with coffee ground fresh that morning, and everything else made from scratch. When we first saw the house, the roof was leaking, plaster was falling, and it was 70 miles away. But, we loved it anyway – so much that we found a way to move the house onto land that’s been in the family since 1888. Our restoration reflects the period in which the house was built, but we’ve also filled it with collectibles from different eras that we hope you will enjoy. The first and second story porches offer spectacular sunsets, summer storms, and starry skies.

Relaxing Getaway

5 on January 03, 2018

We loved our stay at the Steever House Bed and Breakfast. We loved talking with John and Sara as well as the other guests at the house. We stayed in the Dakota Suite and it was so comfortable. The shower and whirlpool tub were so awesome. If you want a place to stay where you will meet wonderful people and be able to get to Sioux Falls quickly, this is the place for you. I know that next year I'm asking my kids for a gift certificate for here so we can go back. Thank you so much John and Sara. God's blessings to you both.

Steever House B&B

5 on November 29, 2014

This was my favorite B&B on a 3000 mile New Orleans to Minnesota and back trip. Out in the quiet farmland, but only 15 minutes from Sioux Falls where I found great BBQ and yoga to work out the driving kinks. Unlike many B&Bs, the family lives in this house. The Steevers will make you feel right at home and treat you like family; the property has been in their family for 6 generations. One of the most breath taking sunsets I've seen in a long time.

My very first experience

5 on September 23, 2013

Reached the young age of 60 and added an experience i enjoyed and will do again. John, Sara and Lilly are very comfortable people and i thank them for sharing their beautiful home with others. I was glad Lilly was there. She helped me from missing my dog Sophie. Lilly sensed it and i appreciated that too....John is a great cook.....Sara is a true lady of the house!

Lovely home, lovely family!

We stayed in the Rose room, and found it to be beautiful, but the bathroom was very tiny. As we were the only guests that night, we were offered the opportunity to take any of the rooms, but we declined. Had we seen the bathroom, we MIGHT have changed our minds. The whole family seems to run this place, and they were all very hospitable. This isn't a place with a lot of frills, but it is very cozy and homey, and we were very comfortable there.

Everything a B&B is supposed to be and more!

We stayed in both the Yellow Room and the Attic Suite, both were very different but both were amazing. Our hosts were beyond friendly, out-going and accommodating. They made you feel like you were staying at a familiar relatives home; a place where you could truly kick back and relax. There is no question that there will be another Steever House get-a-way in out future.

Wonderful, Relaxing Stay

I would definitely recommend the Steever House to anyone who is staying in the Sioux Falls area. My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in the attic suite which included a whirlpool bathtub and shower built for two- very relaxing and extremely private. The interior was beautifully restored, and the innkeeper was very friendly and eager to share the history of his home. Great breakfast, too! We will definitely be returning next year when we go to visit my mom in South Dakota!

an all-time favorite

The Steever House is a real home and we felt totally welcomed and pampered. My husband and I were snowed in here, and John cooked us three meals a day while we happily relaxed by the parlor fire with Betty the dog. John and Sara incorporated us into the family dinner. We talked and laughed and ate. We loved it all!

A perfect night's stay

My husband and I received a night's stay as a gift from our children. Having never stayed at a B&B before, we did not know what to expect. It was awesome! Our attic room, the hot tub, the fireplace, everything set a beautiful, romantice evening for us. The family style breakfast in the morning was a gourmet delight. On a scale of 1 to 10? 10!

Steever House is wonderful

Friendly and Relaxing

I happened by this site & the Steever House listing caught my eye. Along with my sisters & a niece, we stayed here when it first opened. We were greatly impressed with the comfort, great food, great conversation, and excellent accomodations. To this day, this Bed & Breakfast remains my favorite. I was so impressed with the comfort of the surroundings, that I incorporated parts of the house design into our new home hoping to capture the atmosphere of a great experience! I highly recommend a stay with these great folks!

About the innkeepers

We became innkeepers because we like sharing our historic home with travelers. We've been in operation for 20 years and have enjoyed everyone we've met. People that like a quiet place in a rural area really seem to enjoy it here. If the weather permits, we are always happy to build a fire in the outdoor fireplace.
