Kiddville was a small mining camp in the days of the settlement of the Black Hills. It was then abandoned after the gold rush. The vacation home originally was the two story miner's boarding house. The house was converted and re-modeled into a family home in the 1930's, and the property became a private, 38 acre, ranch/homestead. And, again, in 2007 the home was updated with new plumbing, carpet, beds,...

The second floor of the Vacation Home hosts the three bedrooms and the full bath. The main floor consists of a living room, kitchen, dining room, laundry area, porch, and small sun room.

The original homesteader/ranchers from the 1930's lived in the house for 75 years till 2007! The home is located on 38 privately owned acres with no visable neighbors. Solitude for you!

This acreage is located in the heart of excellent National Forest deer/turkey/elk country. There are no other inhabited dwellings on the 38 acre property.

Historic buildings on the property are a mine assay office, caretaker's house, a barn/corral, and cabin.

This is a photo of my parents and your hosts, John and Kay. The vacation property was Kay's childhood home. We wish to share this fantastic location with its unique history with you!

Thanks! Tricia

Patricia Baumann purchased this house in 2007

The homesteaders of the 1930's were my grandparents and the property is a treasured part of the family that we wish to keep. It is our hope that it will become one of your valued memories as well as you stay at an original Black Hills Gold Mining Camp and homestead. Though the house is completely modernized, it yet holds a peice of the past this is becoming difficult to find. Each of the old buildings has a sign on the door telling what part it played in the old west.

The home is on a deadend driveway, so you will have no traffic passing through. The houseyard is adjacent to Public Black Hills Forest land, so you may hike and explore to your heart's content! Wildlife visits regularly (deer, turkeys, elk, squirrels, songbirds,...). And if you have not experienced the clean smell of pine trees, you are in for a treat! The location is at 6000 feet altitude in the protected southern Hills, so the weather is the best you will find in these parts!

A LOVELY "HOME BASE"!

A lovely "home base"!
  • 5 of 5
My children, husband, parents and I enjoyed a week at Kiddville Ranch this July. We had a wonderful stay, and would not hesitate a return trip. In fact, my six year old has already started planning our next vacation! I was drawn to Kiddville because of the dog-friendly (our German Shepherd puppy had a blast!) nature of the owners, the easy and instant access to beautiful Black Hills hiking, the brook running through the property (the best kid-entertainment around), and the historic interest of the place. It felt like we were staying at our own museum!
The inside of the house was spotlessly clean and rustically charming. I spent summers visiting my grandfather's farm as a young girl, and the Kiddville house brought back so many good "farm" memories- enjoying a cool breeze through a screen door, listening to the cows in the morning. I especially loved how efficiently the home is planned out-- there is not a single INCH of wasted space! This lends itself to a clutter-free environment where 'everything has it's place'.
We were very surprised to find tons of amenities provided-- from crock pot and blender to movies to bath products to spices/seasonings to bottled water. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon, but didn't make it to the grocery store until Monday-- with a few pieces of fruit we had in the car, I was able to assemble a great breakfast from the pantry staples in the kitchen!
I can't say enough positive things about the owners. I talked with Kay several times during the trip, and she was always courteous, pleasant and genuinely interested in our vacation. She bent over backwards to help us out, and went above and beyond in her customer service role.
The location (right by Crazy Horse monument) was ideal for our touring. We did day trips to Rapid City, Custer, Hill City and Keystone. We could have easily included Hot Springs or some of the other cities, but my kids wanted to spend each morning (and evening) playing on the property. We enjoyed nightly hikes (rock hounds will LOVE this place!) and spent the mornings playing in the creek or just running full-speed around the homestead.
Thank you so much for the fantastic vacation--

CENTRALLY LOCATED HOUSE GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This place was a great place to stay. The house has alot of history to it. We enjoyed staying here and walking the property and learning about the house and it's surrounding. It is conveniently located to Crazy Horse Memorial and Mt Rushmore. If you want to see all the nearby sites and then turn in to a quiet relaxing place this is it.

A PIECE OF HISTORY

  • 4 of 5
A charming property, full of history. We were well provided for - the kitchen and bathrooms are clean and neat and well stocked, and there is a washer and dryer (no dishwasher). The rooms are very pleasant. The hosts were wonderfully friendly. And there was lots of outdoor area for the kids to enjoy. We would have loved to stay longer!

GREAT PLACE FOR SOLITUDE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I (plus our small dogs) had the best time here...we didn't want to leave after staying here for 11 days. The solitude among the trees and pasture land is so relaxing. We enjoyed it so much that we didn't want to leave the house to visit the nearby attractions...we wanted to stay put! The house is old...but that is the charm. There is no internet...but that gave me a much needed break from being connected...I had forgotten how good it feels to concentrate on what is happening around me rather than what it happening around others. We will difinitely be going back!

VACATION AT KIDVILLE HOME

  • 5 of 5
we only had a short stay at this lovely old home and grounds but thoroughly enjoyed every minute. everything was just as described. a truly historical home and site. we hiked the property and examined the old buildings (the notes describing the history were fascinating). i've never been in a house that old but it was completely modernized, very clean and had everything we needed. the location is beautiful and our dogs loved all of it, especially romping in the forrest that adjoins the property.
