The Space

Welcome! Our lodge is located in the renovated tin shed of an antique wooden grain elevator on the South Dakota prairie. It has 5 bedrooms, three full private bathrooms down the hall (shower, sink, stool), a full kitchen (stove, micr, dishwasher, toaster, dishes, pans, glasses and silverware) and a grill on the deck. We have wifi! If you need something special, let us know and we'll see if we can get it for you. Upstairs in the shed is a loft with a 42" TV with satellite; a smaller TV is in a sitting area at the end of the drive-through, so you can have a choice of channels. The 5 bedrooms have beds for 10 and the couches are so comfy you can crash there too. There's also lots of room for air mattresses you bring. This is a smoke-free, pet-free facility, but we do have the old coal shed next to the main building for both. Please see House Rules. We've got a small gift shop on-site for souvenirs, and you are a quick 7 miles from grocery, hardware, ATM, and gas. We're right on Highway 18, so 7 miles means 7 minutes. Really. The place is all yours when you rent it. We live about a mile away, so we're usually handy if you need something. It's great for youth groups and family vacations, but if you're looking for some personal time alone, you can do that, too. The bedrooms and loft have carpet, but we've preserved the old concrete floors and the original 1907 wooden scale in the floor. The wooden grain elevator is on the National Register of Historic Places. We haven't begun to renovate it yet. The Herrick Elevator sits on 3.3 acres surrounded on three sides by a field which is, depending on the year, planted to corn or alfalfa. My favorite time of day is sunset when the sky unfolds in a glorious display. Thunderstorms are awesome...you can see them coming for hours. But really nothing tops the stars at night when you're out away from the lights of town. I grew up in this area and it still amazes me. NOTE: WE WILL BE CLOSED FOR THE SEASON FROM DECEMBER 5 UNTIL NEXT JUNE. Thanks for all your pleasant 2013 visits. We look forward to seeing you again next year!!

Interaction with Guests

We'll greet you and make sure you're settled in. After that, we'll keep in touch if you like, or you can relax and enjoy time on your own. (We're always available to answer questions and offer helpful suggestions.)

The Neighborhood

Peace and quiet is my favorite thing here. We also have amazing sunrises and sunsets, as well as important cultural history. (Did I mention how peaceful it is at The Elevator?!)

Getting Around

Nope, sorry. This is rural SD, where it's always BYOC (bring your own car)!

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
