Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast
Welcome! Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast is located advantageously in Hill City - otherwise known as the Heart of the Hills - right in the central Black Hills of western South Dakota!
Mountains To Prairies was honored to receive the 2012 Community Pride Award at the Hill City Area Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet held mid-October at Crazy Horse Memorial's Laughing Water Restaurant.
In addition to Crazy Horse Memorial, many of South Dakota's great attractions are conveniently nearby. A partial listing would include Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, Wind Cave National Park, Jewel Cave National Monument, mountain lakes and truly spectacular scenic drives, such as Needles Highway. For the not so faint at heart, there are awe-inspiring climbing and trekking opportunities tucked within these beautiful surroundings, which beckon via massive granite vistas and wilderness hiking trails.
If inclined to more leisurely pastimes, museums, gold mine tours, lake swimming and a good assortment of other interesting activities are close at hand. Black Hills Central Railroad's rumbling nostalgic 1880 Train is across the street. Below, you can see smoke rising where the train is warming up!
The very popular 109-mile long Mickelson Trail doubles as sidewalk through Hill City, passing the 1880 Train and Mountains To Prairies along the way. Deer sightings, bird watching and picking wild berries may be enjoyed many summer days while out walking in fresh air naturally scented with pine. In-town bicycle rentals make biking the trail an easy alternative. Since hunger is sure to find you while you are out having fun in the Hills, take your early evening appetite to Circle B Chuckwagon (supper, cowboy music show and trail rides), just a few miles away on Deerfield Road.
Plan a picturesque vacation in the other Sunshine State; and for hospitality that shows you are on our minds, stay at Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast.
Three distinctive suites are available to make guests of Mountains To Prairies feel welcome. All three suites have antique and unique furnishings, satellite hd tv/dvd/vcr, wireless internet, cove heat and AC, plus ceiling fans.
Our friendly Coffee Shop (Smiling Bear Espresso Bar) serves hot and cold specialty espresso drinks, smoothies and frappes, as well as fine organic teas. Try Smiling Bear's signature Chokecherry Latte, or any of our other tantalizing creations. Our Smiling Bear Antiques Shop offers many hard-to-find items, with attention given to quality. The novelties and souvenirs of days-gone-by may be seen in a new light as unique present-day gifts and mementoes, treasures to take home to special friends and family, or maybe just for you.
Remember, we are within easy walking distance of everything Hill City has to offer, just 1-1/2 blocks to historic downtown, for delicious dining, fine art and delightful shops. Equally close are the popular George S. Mickelson Trail (rails to trails designated for hiking, running, biking) and the 1880 Train, which travels along the path of fascinating local history, through rugged and beautiful scenery.
