The space

Our sweet home is the perfect location to see the Black Hills while still being in Rapid City. Within two blocks of our home you can access Starbucks, a local public park with tennis courts, a bus stop, a grocery, Walgreens, and the local Chocolate shop.

We are a quick 3 minute drive (15-20 min walk) from historic downtown where all the local shops are. And in less than 30 minutes you can access either the southern or northern Black Hills including: Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Sturgis, hiking trails etc.

The room itself features a queen size bed, two windows, a full closet, a table with a stool, and a locally-crafted bison-leather chair.

You have the newly remodeled bathroom next door all to yourselves. There is also a laundry room across the hall with a washer, dryer, iron, and chest freezer that guests are free to use! We have a kitchen area upstairs that is also available to use if guests wish to do their own cooking, store food in the fridge, make tea/coffee, etc.

There is free parking right outside the house along the curb, and an external side door with easy access to the bedroom.

We two dogs that are friendly and well-trained (Shosta more polite than Zoay, however). They sleep across the hall from you in the laundry room. Both have loved-on scores of guests but will still insist on barking at you upon arrival. Please don't be too alarmed! They won't usually jump, though, and will be doe-eying you in no time.

We usually wake around 7:30-8:00am and eat a half hour later. On days where we're gone or busy, help yourself to whatever is in the kitchen (bagels/toast/cereal etc. is almost always in cabinets).

We're both regularly in and out of the house; our work schedules differ depending on the week and season. We have a spare house key if you're staying more than one night that you can use for access.

Guest access

Guests have access to the following spaces:

1. Large patio in the backyard (ask if you want to make a fire in the firepit)
2. Kitchen (for meals) + fridge for storage
3. Laundry room
4. Guest bed room (downstairs)
5. Guest bathroom (downstairs)
6. Conditional access to living room downstairs with TV; the condition is simply if we are not using it, then you are free to use the space. If you choose to hangout there, please do not eat food in the room.

Interaction with guests

One or the other of us is almost always available to answer questions you may have about the Black Hills or help you get comfortable in our home. We are open, low-key people and would love to get to know you. But we respect the need for private rest-space too, especially when traveling.

Some days we will be very busy and and gone from the house entirely, while other days we'll be around if you need anything. Our schedules are very unpredictable, so that's just something to keep in mind.

The neighbourhood

Our neighborhood is centrally located, has a peaceful park only a block away, and is quite safe. Our home is partly on a hill and has a view to the south from our kitchen.

Getting around

Rapid Ride has stops around town or call Rapid Taxi. The airport offers shuttle services for around $25 one-way trip.

Rapid City currently does not have Uber.

Jamin and Jessica's place was cozy, close to downtown and a beautiful drive away from Custer State Park and Mt. Rushmore. The bed was incredibly comfortable and just what was needed after a long drive. Rapid City's downtown atmosphere was hip and not overwhelming, but still busy. The home is just far enough away to be in a quiet neighborhood, but close enough to be within walking distance to downtown. We were there to visit Mt. Rushmore and Custer, and both were less than an hour drive away, but we made stops along the road to take in the views. Would definitely stay again!

Very nice house in a great location not far from the Black Hills or downtown. Jamin and Jessica were nice people and very respectful. They also have two dogs that are very friendly.

Good for the solo traveler. It's easy to come and go without causing much disturbance or being in the way. Convenient location if you're wanting to visit the sites nearby.
