Overview

About the property

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.

Great little home! Close to everything.

  • 4 of 5

The house was just as descibed for 4 people

and easy to find. The children especially liked the shower head with adjustable sprays. Well stocked in the kitchen and we opted to save some of our vacation funds by cooking at the house. The a.c. worked well and we watched some cable in our downtime. Nice quiet neighborhood too. Hans seems to be clear cut with his expectations and easy going. We appreciated his personal touches here. It is a nice home and we would recommend it to other travelers.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything you need. It was great for our family and so much nicer and roomier than a hotel. We cooked some suppers and made lunches. The laundry was a great perk too. Thanks!

Cute house, great neighborhood, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Red House. The location was perfect for outings to all the area attractions. The house was stocked with everything we needed. It was also an easy walk to downtown Rapid City which had great restaurants, shops and even an evening concert on Thursdays. We really enjoyed ourselves and the Red House. Thanks.

Excellent location from which to access the Black Hills sites. The house was a comfortable space.

  • 5 of 5

The red house was in good condition and in a nice neighborhood. Everything worked as expected. The living room, dining, kitchen areas were generous. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to work in. The bed was comfortable. We even had a garage for our car!

Rapid City is very walkable. We enjoyed walking downtown to the restaurants and museums. This was an excellent location to get to the many sites in the Black Hills area. Don't miss the Peter Norbeck Scenic Byway.

The only thing I'd change is the garden between the sidewalk and curb in front of the house and along St. James St. Hans doesn't seem to have enough time to keep them weeded which diminishes the curb appeal. Perhaps it would be better to restore them to grass.

Overall this was a great property which we highly recommend. We would rent there again if we return to Rapid City.

Comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as our home away from home while visiting family over the Christmas holidays. We loved it! There was homemade candy on the table for us upon arrival. The place is clean and in a quiet neighborhood and very conveniently located! It was nice to have all the comforts of home including the washer and dryer. I can't think of anything to complain about this property. Thank you Hans and Christine!

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.
