The Prairie House Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn

Welcome to the Prairie House Manor... A Victorian Bed and Breakfast located in the Little Town on the Prairie De Smet, South Dakota. Hometown of author Laura Ingalls Wilder. Families come from all over the world to visit Laura Ingalls Wilder's hometown and we are proud to be a part of that love. Our home belonged to Banker Ruth from the Little House book The Long Winter.

Prairie House Manor Bed and Breakfast

History of Prairie House Manor I wonder what it was like to walk the streets of De Smet in 1880 when Colonel Thomas H. Ruth served as mayor. Here in the Little Town on the Prairie he was known as Banker Ruth, an early businessman. He purchased our property in 1884 and completed his house in 1894 before the birth of his son, Edwin. We restored the home in 1989 and opened for business on June 29, 1990. At that time it was dedicated to the Lord as a Christian business and the Lord has richly blessed us with wonderful couples and families Guests enjoy six rooms with private baths. Guest rooms on the first floor are handicapped accessible. Rooms are suitable for a romantic get away or a family vacation. We welcome all. Our home is listed on the national historic registry for the person, Colonel Thomas H. Ruth, that lived here. Fresh air, sunshine and wide open prairies greet you when you explore the "Little Town on the Prarie." Whether you are looking for a fun family vacation, a hunting or fishing trip or some unique shopping and dining, De Smet has it all. Visit the original homes of famous author Laura Ingalls Wilder and take a covered wagon ride or take in the Laura Ingalls Wilder pangeant. Visit Lake Thompson, just eight miles east of De Smet, South Dakota's largest natural lake. It's an angler's haven with walleye, perch and northern pike. The De Smet area also offers the best pheasant hunting in east central South Dakota.
