Property description

Aga Huset, 'Aga Family House' in Norwegian, is a vacation rental located in Sturgis, SD, the hub to Black Hills area tourism and home to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Sturgis Mustang Rally, and many more events. The house is located one block from the center of Main Street Sturgis.

The home was constructed by Joseph Aga in the early 1900's and has stayed in the family ever since. It combines all the amenities of a modern home with historic construction and the rich Norwegian heritage of the Aga Family.

Aga Huset is a 2,400 square foot house with 6 bedrooms (7 beds), 2.75 baths, a 2-car garage and off-street parking. It sleeps 10-13 comfortably, although up to 16 occupants are permitted for special events.

Your vacation rental includes all the comforts of home (linens, dishes, etc.). The house also has forced heat/central air, gas grill, washer/dryer, refrigerator, stove and more.

The house is clean and in great condition so we only want responsible renters. No smoking. No pets. No illegal drugs. No weapons. No gangs. No illegal activity.

2017 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Note:
August 4 thru 8 have been reserved. August 9 thru 13 are still available, as are dates before the Rally. Due to the quality of the home and the location, the dates usually are reserved at least 6 months prior to the Rally so reserve dates now if you are interested.
2018+ Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Note:
Contact us regarding future Rally dates. It is never too early to secure a quality rental home for the Rally.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I'm a Sturgis, South Dakota native who also grew up in Spearfish, Gillette (WY), and Minneapolis/St. Paul. The vast majority of my extended family still call the Blacks Hills area home. My wife, kids and I live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, but return to the Black Hills a number of times during the year to enjoy the company of family and to experience everything that this area has to offer. I'm currently self-employed, but previously worked as a college football coach and in marketing/public relations. I have a B.A. in Marketing and a M.A. in Public Relations. My hobbies include playing guitar, biking, reading and just about anything my young kids put me up to.

Why the Owner Chose Sturgis, SD, USA:
I spent the first three years of my life living in this house with my parents and grandparents. I also spent countless hours throughout the years playing in every nook and cranny. I'm proud of my South Dakota heritage and of my adopted home state of Minnesota. This is a family home that has been passed down through the generations. This home was built by my great-great grandparents Joseph & Clara Aga. I purchased the home from relatives after my grandparents Wayne & Carolynn Erickson passed. My intent is to update the home while maintaining its unique charm and nuances. Ultimately, it will become a vacation property with a Norwegian flare (the Aga family originated in Aga, Norway) that can serve as a tribute to the Aga family while also serving the needs of those families looking for a unique stay during their travels to the Black Hills.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house was once much smaller. An addition was added by my grandparents in the mid-'70's. The southern 1/3 of the house is the newest portion. During the expansion a cellar was dug out in the basement. It became the home to an endless supply of my grandmother's homemade chokecherry jelly, apple butter, canned beets and other treats. Prior to that, the home once housed Clara's Brooking Baths & Massage in the basement in 1937 (my understanding is that it was a reputable business so don't let your mind wander).
