Hosts, John & Beth

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.

Check In & Check Out

Check In – We’re happy to welcome you any time between 4:00pm and 7:00pm. (If you need to arrive outside the normal check-in times, please contact us to see what can be arranged.)

Check Out – All good things must come to an end, even a stay at the Hydeout. With that in mind, check-out time is 11:00am.

House Rules

To make each stay as pleasant as possible for all guests, the entire establishment is non-smoking, except for in designated outside areas.

Pets are welcome, just like any other family members, but for their safety and the safety of other guests, please be aware that you will need to keep them under control at all times (this includes not leaving them alone if you go out). We do ask that all pets be kenneled at night, and not be allowed to sleep on the beds.

Cancellation Policy

Life happens. Sometimes travel doesn’t go as planned. Please let us know as soon as possible if you will not be staying with us! We reserve the right to keep one night’s stay in renumeration.


We are sorry to say that, due to the age of the Hydeout, we do not have an elevator, and stairs are required to reach the guest rooms. However, we are happy to carry your bags – no tips necessary!
