The SpaceOur home is located in a quiet neighborhood just off of Exit 32 in Sturgis. "Legendary Sturgis Main Street" is about 16 blocks away, and other nearby attractions include the annual Motorcycle Rally (August), Bear Butte, Deadwood, Fort Meade and various hiking trails, sites, etc in the Northern Hills, and is about 40 minutes from Rapid City Regional Airport.
This space is perfect for a couple or single traveler wanting an affordable place to stay during the rally. The room being offered is located in our semi-finished basement, and measures approximately 9'x11'. It is set up with a queen-size memory foam bed, two dressers with one mirror, an average-size closet space and has two windows that allow tons of natural light (with blinds and dark curtains to block out said light!). A television is available and will be set up with a Roku. Please note this room only has two electrical outlets, but I will hook you up with a power strip.
The bathroom is very basic with a shower, stool and small vanity. Also in the basement is a living area setup complete with a sectional couch, additional seating, and has a 42" flat screen with Dish Network, mini fridge, and a desk suitable for a work area. The space is modest, but is safe, clean and comfortable for your stay during the rally. If needed, there are also a couple of airbeds with bedding that may be used (please disclose additional guests prior to booking).
We do have two cats and two dogs, but they will more than likely be "on vacation" during the rally. However, we cannot erase their existence, so if you have allergies, this may not be the place for you.
We both work in town with consistent M-F schedules, so we should be readily available. You will be provided with a spare key. Guest AccessPlease make yourself at home. You can watch TV in the common area or hang out on the deck in the summertime.
Guests may use the kitchen for storing food, cooking your own meals, making coffee etc. A grocery store is 2 blocks away in case you need something.
There is also a washer and dryer in the utility room in basement, along with a chest freezer that you may use.
Parking is available in the front driveway or along the curb in front of the house. Garage access for storing motorcycles is available but not guaranteed (first come, first serve).
Other rooms may be booked by other guests during your stay, so please respect their space and privacy. There is a bathroom on each floor and will be shared by the guests occupying the rooms on their respective floor. There is also a third bathroom in the garage (shower, stool, vanity) that is also available. Interaction with GuestsWe will be on-site during your stay, but will be working at our full-time jobs. However, we will make every attempt to meet you upon your arrival and give you a spare key. We are very laid-back and casual, and we can give you insider's tips for the area. For the most part, we will respect your space and privacy and will do our best to accommodate you during your stay. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is quiet and safe, established in the mid-50s and 60s, with a mix of retired, friendly folk with tidy yards and young couples starting their families. There are a couple of restaurants, gas stations and a grocery store 2 blocks away on Junction Avenue.
Our street gets a little busy with "backroaders" during the day, but quiets down considerably at night. Getting AroundThere is not much for public transportation, although there are a couple of taxi services that serve the Northern Hills area. Da Bus will be functioning during the rally and will have multiple stops in town and throughout the area. Easy on/off access to I-90.
