Overview

About the property

Two-bedroom Home With Garage In Historic West Boulevard Neighborhood

This home will be a great headquarters for your Black Hills vacation. It features two small bedrooms with queen beds, and a comfortable couch for a fifth person to sleep on. The kitchen has all you will need for basic meals.

Enjoy your morning coffee while sitting on the covered front porch, and eat your meals on the porch or the side patio. Watch the many varieties of bees pollinate the xeriscaped front yard, and be sure to harvest some of the sage and thyme growing there for your meals. Lettuce, chard, kale and cilantro are currently harvestable in the greenhouse, and we are happy to cut a bag for you if you are interested.

Inside, the house is comfortable. It has a new furnace that keeps the winter at bay and central air conditioning keeps the house cool in the summer. The bathroom includes a bath/shower and a clothes washer and dryer.

The attached garage will fit one car and several bicycles, or several motorcycles if that’s your ride. You will appreciate it in the summer when afternoon thunderstorms can roll in, sometimes with hail.

About Hans Stephenson

We own the local fly-fishing shop, which Hans manages full time while Christine works as a physical therapist. Elsa, our 6-year-old, helps us with the gardening and keeps us moving.

Hans Stephenson purchased this house in 2008

Why Hans Stephenson chose Rapid City

We purchased this house because we love the neighborhood. Christine grew up in the West Boulevard area. It's a friendly neighborhood that is clean, has many beautiful historic homes, and is close to where we work and play.

What makes this house unique

You can't beat our location for access to festivities and cultural events in downtown city, and we also have great access to in-town trails for biking, hiking and running. Plus, all of the attractions you want to see in the Black Hills are within an hour drive.

We have enjoyed many dinners outside on the patio or on the front porch saying hello to neighbors as they walk by and enjoying the landscaping.

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

Hans and Christine were fantastic - great hospitality and nice touches throughout the house, including delicious treats for us when we arrived. The neighborhood is a great location and was a perfect launch spot to attend our reunion gatherings in the city and the hills. We truly enjoyed our stay in their well-kept, lovely home!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Red House is perfect.What we liked about it: location is great, clean, convenient, bed and pillows in blue bedroom were comfortable, good water pressure and plenty of hot water, television had a nice clear picture and the WiFi worked well. Having a back yard and garage were a plus. The little extras like a basket full of shampoo, moisturizer and body wash was appreciated.And the cookies upon arrival were a surprise.At the end of a busy day it was a pleasure to come back to.We would definitely stay here again should we return to the area.

Very comfortable house in a charming neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for four nights with my father and we used it as a home base to explore the Badlands and Black Hills. We also made a day trip to Devil's Tower in WY. The house is very comfortable and we really enjoyed the neighborhood for morning walks and proximity to Rapid City's downtown. Hans was most helpful and responsive to our inquiries. We were welcomed with a batch of delicious home made rhubarb bars that made for great snacks while sightseeing. I would definitely recommend the Red House and would stay here again.

Cozy and cute

  • 5 of 5

It was a good center point for all of the things we wanted to get out and go do. Walking distance to downtown. Enough room for us to cook a meal and rest our heads every night. We'd stay there again.

This is the second time we've stayed at the Red House. It's in a great neighborhood and has its own charm. The owners are great, responsive and excellent communicators. Recommend staying here!

This house is located just west of west boulevard in a very walkable, bike-able location. The house is one mile from downtown, one mile from two grocery stores, and four blocks from wilson park. The bike path that winds through rapid city is also just one mile away, which means you are minutes from great fishing, biking and running.

Rapid city has in the past few years created miles of great mountain biking, trail running and hiking trails right in town. This house is one mile from the m hill trails (hansen larson memorial park) and about four blocks from the nearest skyline drive trailhead.

Downtown rapid city offers year-round activities, including an artists' market and fountains in the summer and an ice skating rink in the winter. All of these activities are an easy 20-minute walk from this house.

Rapid city is a great headquarters for your black hills vacation. Head north to spearfish canyon or deadwood, south to custer state park, crazy horse and mount rushmore, or east to the badlands. From this house, you won't be more than an hour away from any attraction you choose.
