Room TypeRoom type
Entire home/apt

This sweet home, centrally located in the quiet West Blvd Historic District, was built and furnished with attention to quality, detail, and comfort. With everything you need to prepare meals, cedar sauna, and large open deck, you'll find plenty of spaces to love. You'll have 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, family room, modern kitchen, laundry, and dining room. It's a short walk to Starbucks, groceries, chocolatier, restaurants, and hiking trails. Close to Mt Rushmore! Also close to hospital. The master bedroom suite has hardwood floors and is furnished with a king bed, a writing desk, a dresser, plenty of closet space to hang your clothes, a quiet overhead fan, and still has plenty of space for a couple yoga mats. There is direct access to the large deck through the double glass door. The bedroom has a private bath featuring a custom stand-up large shower stall and his-and-her sinks. There are two additional bedrooms. They have queen beds, plenty of closet space, and extra seating. There is a work space in each room for a computer. They share a bathroom with a shower and large, deep tub. The kitchen has been updated with modern cabinetry and lighting. It features a work space for a laptop or writing. You'll find all the tools you'll need to cook most meals including an Instapot, a griddle, lots of quality pots and pans, cast iron, utensils, cake and pie pans, flat cooking sheets, crock pot, toaster and microwave, Vitamix blender, and a dishwasher to clean up the mess! Because we live here in the winter we know that it will have everything you need to cook just about anything. It's stocked with common pantry items and condiments. The dining room features a custom cherry table and hutch handmade by a local craftsman, and a hutch where you'll find games, puzzles, a cribbage board, cards, and reading material. The dining room opens onto the deck through a sliding glass door. On the large deck you'll find comfortable seating around a table. The deck faces east so you can enjoy the morning sun with a cup of coffee or tea and your favorite person, or relax with a book in the evening shade. There is a grill on the deck - turn on the gas to use it and turn off the gas when done so it doesn't all leak out! There is ample space in the living room to spread out, as well as a piano and stand-up desk with computer monitors you can plug in to. There is a flat-screen TV, and plenty of windows to bring in fresh sunshine. TV Note: There is one TV in the living room and no TVs in the bedrooms. We do not have cable or Roku, but the tv does connect to the internet so a savvy user can cast to it. This is mentioned specifically because we have been given 3 and 4-star reviews a couple times because of it. Laundry is in the basement sauna room. The basement living room is stocked with books but is used mostly for storage right now. Please do not use the basement mini-kitchen or the freezer. The home features a custom cedar sauna in the basement. Instructions are posted near the sauna. Note that the sauna is complete, functional, and awesome. Otherwise the room is bare with only a washer and dryer. In the future I will be adding a shower in the room that the sauna is in, a new floor and wall coverings, etc... The entire house has craftsman-quality wood-frame windows. All the windows open, if you like the breeze, and many have double blinds for privacy. There are two thermostats - one for the bedrooms, and one for the common spaces - that control heat and AC separately in these spaces. Except for the Sol and Luna bedrooms, which have carpet, all rooms have either hardwood floors (including master bedroom) or stone tile. There are several options for mood lighting throughout the house. We have decorated with art from our travels and from our friends. The home is scent-free. There will likely be several musical instruments laying around (including a piano) so feel free to pick one up (except the piano - it's quite heavy) and rock out. Within close walking distance you will find a grocery store, a Walgreens, various restaurants, a Starbucks, a convenience store, hiking trails, and a local chocolatier! Monument Hospital is close by (1 mile). You have access to the entire home except the downstairs bedroom. That room will not be occupied and is locked. There is street parking in front of the house, which is the easiest way to access the front door, but you can also park in the back if you like. From the back, there are stairs around to the front, and stairs up to your deck. There is space for several vehicles in the back, and two in the front. If you park in the front, please get as close to the curb as you can (it is a narrow street). There is optional motorcycle parking in the garage. Let us know if you need to use that and we will make it available. You'll find a laundry room located at the bottom of the stairs. The cedar sauna is in this room as well, and I will be adding a shower someday and finishing the room! Our home is centrally located in the West Boulevard Historic District, the most distinguished and desirable neighborhood in Rapid City, known by locals as “The Boulevard”. Our neighborhood is safe, quiet, and friendly. Explore the Boulevard and surrounding neighborhood by taking a walk under the towering tree canopy to discover the rich architecture of turn-of-the-century Victorian, Georgian, Dutch Colonial, beautiful Foursquare, and charming California Bungalow-style homes. If you'd rather ride or cycle through the Ponderosa Pine forest, a trailhead to the Skyline mountain-bike trail system is two blocks to the northwest. Easy access to the Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, the Badlands, Devil's Tower, and downtown Rapid City make this home one of the best in the area for travelers hoping to see it all! Lyft is available in Rapid City, as well as local bus transit (Rapid Ride). Without your own vehicle it will be difficult to access the Black Hills or Badlands. Our space is exceptional, polished, clean, and scent free. We expect that you respect this. Please remove shoes at the door. We don't allow pets, smoking, parties, or candles. Flush nothing but toilet paper! Flushable wipes have clogged the pipes. The house is located in a distinguished, quiet neighborhood. Please respect the neighbors (and our relationship with them!) by minimizing noise after 10pm on weekdays and 11pm on weekends.
