Missouri River

St Anthony of Padua Church in Rockford, IL

Discover the gently rolling hills in eastern South Dakota giving way to rugged Missouri River breaks. The Missouri River is now gathered into four huge lakes, making this region a wonderful outdoorsman’s playground. See the curve of the River as it winds through the bluffs and prairie hills, cast your line for a trophy walleye or have a day of fun at local powwows, rodeos, or festivals in the tiny frontier towns. Enjoy excellent waterfowl hunting, as geese, ducks and other species migrate along the Missouri River corridor toward warmer winter climates. Join thousands of sportsmen in pheasant hunting, fishing, boating, and hiking. Explore the region in every season for glimpses of native birds. Visit the Fort Pierre National Grassland and step back into a time of vast, rolling, unspoiled prairie. Retrace the steps of native Americans, fur traders, and explorers as you visit this region, where Lewis & Clark made their historic trail along the Missouri River and met the Teton Sioux. The Missouri River region is also host to South Dakota's state capitol in Pierre, where visitors are invited to stop by the governor's office and say hello. This large region will awe you with its open spaces, its huge sky and its landscape that has been carved by the great Missouri River.

Hydeout Bed and Breakfast

Highmore, South Dakota

Centrally located in Highmore, SD, the Hydeout is easy to find – just a block north of the Hyde County Courthouse. Built in 1909, the charming building which holds the Hydeout Bed and Breakfast is full of its own hometown charm and history. In fact, Beth and John are only the fifth owners of the house – it’s the kind of place that people love too much to leave, and we know you’ll love it, too!

John and Beth have always welcomed guests into their home, and finally decided to move to a bigger home to accommodate even more people. Their goal is to make everyone feel like they are part of the family – except, at the Hydeout Bed and Breakfast, you won’t have to wash your own dishes or make your own bed. Beth is a seasoned pro at hospitality. She previously assisted her mom, Mary, with her own Bed & Breakfast and catering business in Scotland, SD, in the early 1990s. She then spent several years in food service, cooking at the Senior Meals program in both Scotland, SD, and Belle Fourche, SD – as well as at Pizza Hut. (So whatever you do, you won’t want to miss breakfast!) Above all, John and Beth are excited to provide each of their guests with great service, and the kind of stress-free visit that makes you want to come back again and again.
