The building is called the Gibson House to the locals, but it is actually known on the National Historic Register as the FlatIron Building. Named after the first skyscraper in New York City that is bordered on two sides by streets and loos like an old-fashioned flat iron, it was designed more narrow at the front of the building and wider at the rear.
The old Gibson House Hotel once greated visitors as they stepped off the passenger train across the street; people who came to experience the healing waters that gave the town its name. In addition to the guestrooms on the first and second floors, the basement of the 1911 hotel housed the hotel's German kitchen along with a cobbler shop. The FlatIron Building (or Gibson House) was completely refurbished by the current owner beginning in 2001.
We hope you enjoy your stay with us!
There are some REALLY beautiful/free outdoor activities for you to do that are pretty close to the FlatIron and not too far from Hot Springs!Also check out the links below for other great adventures and opportunities!
Chautauqua Park located close to Evans Plunge and beautiful downtown Hot Springs. The park has undergone amazing rennovations and is the perfect place for family events, weddings, and gatherings of all kinds.
Angostura Recreation Area and State Park, located just 10 miles south of Hot Springs of of Hwy 385 South, is best known for its walleye fishing and was also home to the state's Grand National Walleye Cup in August of 2005. But in addition to the world class walleye fishing, Angostura is also home to a large number of other game fish including northern pike, small mouth bass, and crappie. It is also one of the few lakes in the state where spearfishing is allowed during the middle of the summer. The lake also features many sandy beaches and a number of camp sites, as well as camping cabins. Call ahead to reserve.
Battle Mountain Hiking: Head north on Hwy 385 heading out of Hot Springs. Once you pass the Dollar Inn, take a RIGHT onto Skyline Drive/Thompson Ave. Park you car and go for a very challening hike/mountain bike adventure of a lifetime! You can stay on the road or find a trail for even more challenge. You will thoroughly enjoy the incredible view from the top!!
Cascade Falls & Keith Park: South on Hwy 71 and located just 15 miles outside of Hot Springs, this is a great all-day adventure for even the strongest city-dweller. Pack a picnic and take a lunch to Kieth Park where the cold springs bubble up that feed Cascade Falls. Use the beauiful gazeebo and private setting for a small wedding, or stop to play with your pets for a bit. Then head 0.5 miles more and take a wonderful swim in the Cascade Falls! Enjoy jumping off the rocks into the pool of water off the short falls. Sit in the "jacuzzi" sections higher up the river. You can also hit up the Witney Preserve (just after Keith Park) and/or take a tour of the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary (a couple miles south of Cascade Falls).
Cold Brook Dam, managed by the Army Corps ofEngineers and located just three miles north of HotSprings (take North Rivers Street past the Evans Plunge, then fork right, go two blocks, turn left and drive until you get there). Cold Brook is routinely stocked with rainbow trout where it is not unusual for a fisherman to pull out a once in a lifetime lunker. In addition to the unbelievable trout fishing, it is also a good spot to catch large mouth bass, as well as an occasional crappie or bluegill. For boaters, only electric motors on allowed onthe lake, but there are plenty of spots on the shore to try your luck as well. Cold Brook also features a sandy swim beach, and campsites (first-come-first-served).
Cottonwood Springs Dam, also an Army Corps of Engineers project and located just six miles west of Hot Springs off Hwy 18 West (towards Edgemont), is very similar to Cold Brook Dam. While rainbow trout is the primary fish, anglers especially like the abundance of crappies to satisfy their appetites. Largemouth bass, and bluegill are also in abundance and provide a great place for kids to fish. Camping is also available on a first-come-first-served basis.
