· Guests of Mountains To Prairies B&B

Here is a collection of albums featuring a number of our 2010 guests. The albums show, from our hearts, why we make the following comment on the Dates, Rates and More page of the M2P website:

"We look forward to meeting all of our vacationers
who will visit the beautiful Black Hills in 2011,
and are again reminded of our gratitude
for the past wonderful years which we were blessed to enjoy,
and for all the new friends we made
because they chose to stay with us."

Just click on the descriptive link below any set of photos, and you will be taken to the corresponding facebook page of Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast.

Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast - Rich and Wanda are the perfect example of a prime reason for having a Bed and Breakfast... forming friendships! Wanda's birthday has been celebrated four times at Mountains To Prairies. This year we surprised her with a blueberry muffin birthday 'cake', baked in a small bundt pan, and lit with three long candles... 1) remembering the past, 2) looking forward to the future, and 3) enjoying the beauty of today. And what a beautiful day in early November it is, with a sunny temperature of 75 degrees!! Rich and Wanda began capturing the best of the warm weather even before breakfast, by taking a walk along the Mickelson Trail.


Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast - Two potato, three potato, four potato, five ...nope, just ONE. Guests of two nights were on their way to Arizona to present this zany 'bearly potato' to a relative. They dug it up in their own North Dakota potato patch. We just called it Spud, but SPUDZ is more like it! - Guests Diane and Alvin are long-time neighbors of my brother, sister and brother-in-law who live on the farm where I grew up (...and where the pictured apples grew!) - ZANY a.k.a. peculiar, unconventional, strange, bizarre, funny, quirky, kooky, oddball. (Click on the first pic to go to the album of six. Each photo has a caption.)

Antiques - Mike and Jessi had been married all of 30 hours before arriving at Mountains To Prairies B&B in Hill City, South Dakota for a three-night HONEYMOON stay. Much of their 'wedding money' was exchanged for antiques at Smiling Bear Antiques Shop, in-house with the B&B. They made careful and thoughtful selections. Many of the items they chose may one day very well be passed on to their grandchildren ...such as an antique oak Gingerbread Clock. They purchased the early 1900's oak-framed Shaving Mirror shown in one of the eleven photos, in which their happy image is nostalgically framed. (Most photos have a caption.)


Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast - Bill and Kay from Minnesota enjoyed each other and the Black Hills for their 50th Anniversary. We were thrilled to get to accommodate them for their special occasion vacation of five nights. Leaves were beginning to turn during their late summer stay...colorful beauty everywhere! Present at the breakfast table with Bill and Kay were Roger and Cheryl of Platt, SD (first and last photos).


Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast - Late September/early October, we were very excited to get to accommodate (Again!) this amazing family of six in Chessie Lee's Peas. The beds in CLP comfortably sleep five guests...but for the littlest of Scott and Angie's children, we added a single-size air mattress to the mix. For their first visit, the air mattress was placed behind the queen bed on the main level. This time, for the growing young man, space in a nook in the Tree House Loft was arranged.


Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast - Marlies and Joerg were absolutely delightful guests from Germany who were not afraid to try the heights of Harney Peak, and they succeeded! - Wayne and Patti also enjoy getting physical with the great outdoors, running marathons, and running along the Mickelson Trail! (Please read the captions under the photos.)


Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast - Mountains To Prairies B&B's connecting proximity to the George S. Mickelson Trail creates a convenient access point for bicyclers. Early in September, 2010 we were delighted to get to know three different sets of friendly trail-going folks...including a couple, a threesome...and a family with two children (check out their rig!) The day of the family's arrival, knowing they would be arriving late, we slipped away early to pick wild black currants along the Mickelson Trail in the Mystic area. What a fun surprise when Sam and our soon-to-be guests got into a conversation on the trail and discovered that we 'know' one another!!


Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast - The central and convenient location of Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast makes it a good getaway place for anyone in the Hills needing a breath of fresh pine-scented air. Many locals, including Rick and Anne who live in the northern Black Hills, take advantage of the inviting opportunity that the Labor Day Weekend offers for enjoying their home turf. And we got to enjoy Rick and Anne, as we listened with interest in their motorcycling adventures!! (Six photos in the album.)


Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast - This is Andy, who fulfilled his dream to hike the Mickelson Trail. We are thrilled to have been a small part of his plan. Andy began his trek at the Edgemont trail access. His first night was spent at a ranch in the southern reaches. He put himself through the rigors of training before leaving home, and came packed lightly...unburdened with non-necessities.


Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast - Mid-August, J and A from the Pacific northwest were "Just Married" when we had the pleasure of meeting them. In 2010 we got to accommodate quite a few newly wed couples, and hope to see many more in 2011. Their unique happiness seems to be contagious to everyone!


...Here are a few previous BLOGS (also posted on facebook) representing guests from France and New Zealand!

Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast ‎- Please go to Bruno's blog below but don't click on the English Version link or it will leave the page on which M2P is shown (scroll down the page, and enjoy Bruno's tour!) Bruno was here from France with his wife Leila for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, early August, 2010, the Rally's 70th Anniversary. In addition to sharing some of their Airstream adventures in the Endless Summer blog, Bruno talks (in French) about his and Leila's stay at Mountains To Prairies B&B in Hill City. Bruno and Leila were truly enchanting guests!
