The SpaceOriginal oak wood floors, bay window, comfortable furniture all in an historic district only 2-3 minutes from the University of South Dakota by foot.
The bedroom has a full size double bed, with a brand new, super comfortable mattress. All of the furniture in the bedroom is antique french painted furniture. The bedroom is situated in a quiet corner of the house.
There are TV's both in the bedroom and the living room, both with cable TV and lots of stations.
Candles, tea or a glass of wine will welcome you to this historical home within walking distance of Main Street, USD or the river. Guest AccessYou will have full access to the kitchen, the shared bathroom, your bedroom and the living room. If you need to do laundry, also please help yourself. Interaction with GuestsPlease let us know if there is anything that we can do to make your stay more enjoyable. We are busy professionals, but may be in and out of the home during the day. We will be upstairs when working from at home and at night so you will have the entire ground floor almost to yourself (but we do need to share a bathroom, which is nice and tidy). The NeighborhoodThe house is from 1900 in an historic residential area of town. There are many houses from the late 1800s and early 1900s in the neighborhood, with several on the national historic register. The university is only a 5 minute walk from the university (USD), yet the neighborhood is very quiet. There are few students living in the immediate vicinity. You can walk to shops on Main Street or the river. Getting AroundVermillion is best reached by car. It is 1 hour south of Sioux Falls, SD (interstate 29) and 45 min. north of Sioux City, Iowa. Omaha is 2 hours away. Please note that during large winter storms, they can close the Interstate highways. You will see the large booms that can cross all lanes at certain points, to keep people from driving out into a storm.
Vermillion has daily bus service via Jefferson Lines. Greyhound also has service, we believe. We have not experience with either service, so please contact them directly.
There's no public transportation in the normal sense. We have no first hand experience with this, but the official Vermillion city website lists Vermillion Public Transit at 605-624-RIDE (7433). This is apparently a van that picks you up and takes you to your destination for a few dollars.
When you do arrive, there is a lot of street parking. Other Things to NoteThe bed is a full size double bed. The full size mattress snuggly fits into the antique bed frame. If you are over 6 feet tall, you will not really fit unless you scrunch. If you are alone, then you could sleep somewhat diagonal, increasing your sleeping area.
