About the House

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!

Your Hosts

John & Beth Simonson

John and Beth have always welcomed guests into their home, and finally decided to move to a bigger home to accommodate even more people. Their goal is to make everyone feel like they are part of the family – except, at the Hydeout Bed and Breakfast, you won’t have to wash your own dishes or make your own bed. Beth is a seasoned pro at hospitality. She previously assisted her mom, Mary, with her own Bed & Breakfast and catering business in Scotland, SD, in the early 1990s. She then spent several years in food service, cooking at the Senior Meals program in both Scotland, SD, and Belle Fourche, SD – as well as at Pizza Hut. (So whatever you do, you won’t want to miss breakfast!) Above all, John and Beth are excited to provide each of their guests with great service, and the kind of stress-free visit that makes you want to come back again and again.

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
