About Us

A Charming, Historic Home In Highmore, South Dakota

Centrally located in Highmore, SD, the Hydeout is easy to find – just a block north of the Hyde County Courthouse. Built in 1909, the charming building which holds the Hydeout Bed and Breakfast is full of its own hometown charm and history. In fact, Beth and John are only the fifth owners of the house – it’s the kind of place that people love too much to leave, and we know you’ll love it, too!

Mary’s Room

This cozy room instantly reminded us of Beth’s mother, Mary – which just happened to be the name on the door to the room when we first saw it. With a full-size bed, this room will sleep two comfortably.

Shirley’s Room

This spacious room with a queen-size bed was named for John’s mother, Shirley. (No, her name wasn’t on the door when we first got here, but we decided to go with the theme.) This room will give two adults plenty of room to spread out for a quiet night.

Helen’s Room

Beth’s Grandma Helen gets the honors of this bedroom, which has its own in-room vanity sink. If you’re looking for a room where you can feel like you’re truly being taken care of, snuggling down in Helen’s antique bedroom set is the way to go.

Iva’s Room

Our largest room has both a queen size bed and a day bed – perfect if you’re a couple traveling with a child. Named for John’s Grandma, Iva, we’re pretty sure she’d be thrilled to have you and your loved ones tucking in for a good night’s sleep, here.

Papa’s Place

Papa’s place has room for a larger group–it can sleep up to 5 on beds, with room for more. It has all the comforts of home, including its own kitchen and a private bathroom with laundry, without the hassle of clean-up. And, if you need a little extra space to get social, Papa’s place is adjacent to John’s Man Cave.

Relax after a long day of hunting or other adventures in the Highmore area by playing a game of pool in the Man Cave.

Guest Reviews

Absolutely loved my stay in Hydeout B&B! Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast with baked goods, it was truly a delight to stay there. I only wish it could have been for more than the 4 nights. The location was a great mid-point for the many cities that I went to in search of my roots. John and Beth were great! Looking forward to going again! Thanks!

This is a cozy bed and breakfast that is both historical and easily comfortable. The rate really isn’t bad for a small town and during events like old settlers day and sturgis, this place sees a variety of visitors. The hydeout is very clean and upkept; and they start your morning off right. They are also nearby highmores hotspots which makes visiting stores, bars, and other restaurants safe and easy, so you can have that night out in confidence. I haven’t had any complaints and neither did my friends who i recommended the stay.

My wife and I were lucky to find this bed and breakfast on the way back from the Black Hills. John and Beth were fantastic hosts. We showed up late (forgot about the time zone change) but they didn’t mind at all. The room was comfortable and quiet. The house was very nice and had a lot of history. It was great to relax and catch a bit of cable before hitting the sack. In the morning, breakfast was delicious and they let us hang out for a little bit and check work email. I would love to stay here again on our way to/from another Black Hills adventure. I definitely recommend it for couples, a group of hunters, or motorcyclists (like us). Thanks John and Beth!

During our roadtrip to the badlands we found a great stopover in lovely highmore,and your wonderful house.Especially memorable was the evening with you and John on your porch.And after an excellent breakfast and some valuable informations from Beth, we continued our trip.The midwest was great but the badlands in SD were absolutely gorgeous and unforgettable.
Thanks for all from your German Friends. Beth and Werner
