The fully equipped kitchen has everything you would need for you and your family plus extra entertaining items in the case that you may want to entertain during your stay.

About Cindy Tripp

My name is Cindy Tripp and I have lived in the Sioux Falls area all of my life. I grew up just south of Sioux Falls on a farm and attended Harrisburg School. My husband Lyle and I have three great kids and live just 10 minutes from The Gathering Place! For several years I have dreamed of owning a home that I could rent out for events and private gatherings. As time went on I realized the need, not only for a venue for smaller events, but also for a house that could be rented for overnight stays. Many families, business workers, brides and grooms, and gals needing a get-away for the weekend have used The Gathering Place for a night, a weekend or a week!

Cindy Tripp purchased this house in 2010

Why Cindy Tripp chose Folsom's Addition

The moment I walked into this house I knew it was the one! The high ceilings and openness of the living room/dining room area are just what I had hoped for. Not to mention the beautiful hardwood floors. The spaciousness of the house is wonderful, but yet we feel we have created a cozy feel with the decor and furniture.

What makes this house unique

What can I say....I fell in love with the front porch, the hardwood floors, the high ceilings, the absolutely beautiful windows in the living room, the fenced in backyard, the great location, and the claw foot tub! :)

Nicely restored Victorian, very comfortable and centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay during a family reunion weekend. Lots of space for impromptu gatherings between the organized picnics and parties. Cindy was very pleasant and helpful . We had a problem one evening with the latch on the gate and her husband was there the very next morning to fix it. Highly enjoyable stay.

Spacious home, central location, gracious proprietor

  • 5 of 5

This older home is spacious and beautifully maintained. The weather was quite warm during our June visit, so the recently added central air conditioning was much appreciated.

We had only 7 overnight guests, which is less than the capacity of the property, but we had about 20 guests over one afternoon, and there was plenty of space for different groups to congregate in different rooms.

Cindy, the proprietor, was very helpful, and since, in this case her booking schedule allowed for it, she was also flexible about the check-in and check-out times.

We would definitively go back for a return visit when in Sioux Falls.

Downtown and Historical

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for our son's wedding and, while it was not our first choice, it turned out to be the perfect choice. Our hope was to get our family in the same living space and have the rehearsal dinner (42 people) there as well. The house accommodated 12 of us very well and worked wonderfully for the dinner. Cindy and Lyle were very helpful with all of our needs. If you like the shiny and new, this might not meet your expectations. The home is downtown and historical (137 years old) and is well maintained. It is roomy enough to entertain a large group and Cindy has furnished it with plenty of tables, chairs, plates, etc. to make it happen. Now that we have family in Sioux Falls, we may have need of it again.

Car: recommended

The Gathering Place is located very near downtown in Sioux Falls, SD. Our location is very convenient to many restaurants, museums, and stores. Just a little farther east (you may want a car for this) you will find 8th and Railroad where many wonderful and unique stores can be found. Being a couple of miles off of I-29 interstate, it is quick and easy to find your way to our Empire Mall and many other shopping opportunities on the west side of Sioux Falls. The stores downtown are quaint and fun to shop at, but when you have all of them conquered you may want to check out our mall! If you want to take in a movie, Sioux Falls has three nice cinemas that house several theaters each. One of my favorites is antiquing! There are several antique and vintage stores both near The Gathering Place (one at 8th and Railroad) and a short distance away. Shopping and movies not your thing? Falls Park is a beautiful place to spend part of your day or check out the Washington Pavillion that has great activities for kids and wonderful shows for families and adults.
