Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Rapid City - The Red House

Two-bedroom Home With Garage In Historic West Boulevard Neighborhood

This home will be a great headquarters for your Black Hills vacation. It features two small bedrooms with queen beds, and a comfortable couch for a fifth person to sleep on. The kitchen has all you will need for basic meals.

Enjoy your morning coffee while sitting on the covered front porch, and eat your meals on the porch or the side patio. Watch the many varieties of bees pollinate the xeriscaped front yard, and be sure to harvest some of the sage and thyme growing there for your meals. Lettuce, chard, kale and cilantro are currently harvestable in the greenhouse, and we are happy to cut a bag for you if you are interested.

Inside, the house is comfortable. It has a new furnace that keeps the winter at bay and central air conditioning keeps the house cool in the summer. The bathroom includes a bath/shower and a clothes washer and dryer.

The attached garage will fit one car and several bicycles, or several motorcycles if that’s your ride. You will appreciate it in the summer when afternoon thunderstorms can roll in, sometimes with hail.

About Hans Stephenson

We own the local fly-fishing shop, which Hans manages full time while Christine works as a physical therapist. Elsa, our 6-year-old, helps us with the gardening and keeps us moving.

Hans Stephenson purchased this house in 2008

Why Hans Stephenson chose Black Hills

We purchased this house because we love the neighborhood. Christine grew up in the West Boulevard area. It's a friendly neighborhood that is clean, has many beautiful historic homes, and is close to where we work and play.

What makes this house unique

You can't beat our location for access to festivities and cultural events in downtown city, and we also have great access to in-town trails for biking, hiking and running. Plus, all of the attractions you want to see in the Black Hills are within an hour drive.

We have enjoyed many dinners outside on the patio or on the front porch saying hello to neighbors as they walk by and enjoying the landscaping.

Beautiful house & great location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your house with us! We loved the house - it had great historic charm and was in a great central location - we could walk downtown and to the Dinosaur Park and there were lots of places to run. It was a great starting point for our week of SD adventures. We appreciated the homemade cookies and the "things to do" book. The house had everything we needed as far as being able to prepare all meals, do laundry, etc. The invitation to share in the garden's bounty was also much appreciated! Thank you so much for a great experience. We highly recommend this house and the wonderful owners!

Great Home Base for Black Hills Adventures

  • 5 of 5

My family of six recently stayed in the Red House for three nights on the first leg of our "Epic Western Adventure". We found the house to be very comfortable and a perfect home base for our Black Hills vacation. It was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking dinners "at home" and the bedrooms were comfortable. The location was convenient for visiting Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, Deadwood, and Wind Cave NP. We also enjoyed walking around downtown Rapid City and seeing the president statues. Don't hesitate to book this place for your visit to Rapid City!

Perfect home for our Black Hills vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with the Red House! The house was very comfortable, the location was great, and the homey touches (the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, and the vegetable garden was an added bonus!) suited us perfectly. Thanks for your great South Dakota hospitality.

Very clean and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house is very cozy and comfortable. Our family of 5 (two adults and three children 4 years and younger) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was it home base for all our travels for the 4 nights we stayed at the Red House. The kitchen was well stocked with all the needed pots and pans, along with all the kitchen utensils that we needed. We will definitely stay again if the Red House is available.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our three nights in the little red house located in a beautiful historical district. Enough space for parents and two boys (10 & 8) to lounge and relax, with comfortable beds, plenty of seating, nicely stocked kitchen, including extra coffee which was great when we were a few scoops short on our last morning! Downtown was a quick drive (or long walk), where we enjoyed the Presidents, the fountain for cooling off, the beautiful city parks, and excellent food at Murphy's Pub in the evenings after touring Badlands, Reptile house, etc. Highly recommend!

This house is located just west of west boulevard in a very walkable, bike-able location. The house is one mile from downtown, one mile from two grocery stores, and four blocks from wilson park. The bike path that winds through rapid city is also just one mile away, which means you are minutes from great fishing, biking and running.

Rapid city has in the past few years created miles of great mountain biking, trail running and hiking trails right in town. This house is one mile from the m hill trails (hansen larson memorial park) and about four blocks from the nearest skyline drive trailhead.

Downtown rapid city offers year-round activities, including an artists' market and fountains in the summer and an ice skating rink in the winter. All of these activities are an easy 20-minute walk from this house.

Rapid city is a great headquarters for your black hills vacation. Head north to spearfish canyon or deadwood, south to custer state park, crazy horse and mount rushmore, or east to the badlands. From this house, you won't be more than an hour away from any attraction you choose.
