The Steever House was built in 1910-11 by Chris and Tillie Nelson. Chris and Tillie farmed near Gayville, South Dakota in the Missouri River Valley. Tillie was an incredible gardener and they both spent many Sunday afternoons entertaining guests with their player piano.

When we first saw the house in 1994, the roof was leaking, plaster was falling, and the commute was seventy miles - each way. We loved it anyway - so much so that we found a way to move the house (we even slept in it when it was in route) and we've been devoted to restoring it ever since. Some people thought we were crazy, but our friends loved the house enough to be married here. 

Our restoration reflects part of the period in which the house was built, but we've also filled it with collectibles and art from different eras that we hope you will enjoy. The first and second story porches offer spectacular sunsets, summer storms and brilliant stargazing. If you prefer, cozy up to the fireplace on the main floor. Our guests say time moves more slowly here. 

Steever House is 10 miles south of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
