This handsome two story building would come to house the Dakota Loan and Investment Company, the Abstract Company, and a year later the Germania State Bank. This building had the historical importance of being a place where the pioneers would come to stake their claims. Over one hundred years would go by before it would become the beautiful bed and breakfast is is today. Click here for 'Things to do and See'

The innkeepers, Carl & Kim Ernst, bought the vacant building and spent three years commuting from Colorado to South Dakota to carefully restore this historical landmark into a bed and breakfast with old world charm and character. Kim grew up in De Smet and her heritage can be traced back as far as her great great grandparents, who may have known the Ingalls family. So it would only be fitting that they name the place the Heritage House.

Situated on the quiet corner of 2nd Street and Calumet Avenue, right across the street is the historical site of Pa Ingalls' dry good store, the Heritage House is also within a few minutes' walking distance to the famous savories chantey, and the Ingalls home that Pa built. It is an ideal setting to enjoy the heritage of this famous town, and stroll the streets that Mary and Laura Ingalls strolled as children. Classic style and historic charm along with warm hospitality and gracious service welcome you to Experience the Legend of the Heritage House.
