Brair House was great for us! We have two kids attending SDSU and visit about once a month. Finding this house allowed us to settle in, walk to campus and have some quality family time in between the activities for Dad's weekend. We were able to cook meals and just be together as a family. We didn't have direct contact with Darla but had all the information we needed to contact her if needed. The electronic communication we had was clear. We had no problems. The house was exactly as described. We were very comfortable. Already have our next reservations

A comfortable, spacious cottage in a very prime location, central to everything, within walking distance of main street and SDSU. Darla was very responsive to make our stay most enjoyable, from arrival to departure....fulfilling our expectations, as advertised.

Darla was a very attentive host. She made sure that there was something available to eat for breakfast (amazing local bread) since we got in late and had to be up early to move our daughter into SDSU. The location was perfect, walking distance from campus and central to many of Brookings attractions. Darla checked in with us several times during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed which was wonderful. Everything we needed and more was available for our stay, we will definitely stay here again!

Darla was very responsive and great to work with! The house is a block from SDSU, next to a nice restaurant, and a walk from downtown! Perfect location and a very comfy place to stay! Highly recommend!

Hello. I teach writing at South Dakota State University and also maintain a private piano studio. I enjoy collaborating with artists, musicians and dancers to create theatrical performances or installations. I also enjoy traveling "off the beaten path" and seeing things that the locals enjoy. When I travel, I often stay at AirB&B listings to get a more authentic feel for the area, and I'm equally happy to be able to offer a place for guests to stay in my little place of the world in South Dakota. I sincerely enjoy the act of hospitality--getting everything ready for guests--even though we don't actually meet in person.
