BROKEN BOW—After seven months of hard work, a worn out rental house transformed into the beautiful Round Valley Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast. Russ and Lisa Rice own land north of the Custer County fairgrounds where they run a small feedlot. The rental house on their property was in need of some repairs and those repairs soon turned into a major overhaul that resulted in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, fully furnished and decorated house–thanks to Lisa’s interior decorating abilities.
At the beginning of March, Russ and Lisa never thought they would be opening a bed and breakfast, but one thing led to another and the couple celebrated a ribbon cutting on Tuesday with the Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce. The Rice family agreed the location was ideal for a weekend getaway or special event and decided to dive in with the project.
“It’s still got the country feel, it’s still just a step away from the city. You get that privacy and that comfy, cozy, farmhouse feel I think,” Lisa Rice said.
Kyle Wolfe of Sandhills Custom Carpentry worked as the contractor to tear down walls, add a new bathroom and a back door, update plumbing and electrical, install windows, and remodel the kitchen.
Lisa plans to rent the space for overnight stays, watch parties, bridal showers, and other events for out-of-town guests or locals looking for a change of scenery.
