The Lakeside is about 1,000 sq. ft. On the 2nd floor of this 135-year old brick home on Big Stone Lake. We are on/above Big Stone Lake & in town. This is a hilly area on the lake; park-like with all the trees. You’ll have a door security code sent to you.

No smoking on the property.

The space
This was a family home until the l930's, when the upstairs was converted into two apartments. We rent both. Guests have about 1,000 square feet which includes private entrance, bedroom (Queen mattress), living room, shower/bath, dinette, kitchen, & a deck in the trees. Also, new to the Lakeside Suite is a day bed, with new mattress & trundle underneath. We live on the main floor and try to be available if you have any questions. This suite is best suited to 2 adults & children as the twin beds are most comfortable for them. Monthly renters feel free to call. The price is for two.
Please be sure to include them when you book as they are priced separately.

Where you’ll be

Ortonville, Minnesota, United States

Lakewood Lodge is a great place for dinner & just up the road a mile. Our Carnegie Library is a block away. Many Friday nights Sioux Historic Pavillion built in the early 1900's, still is open for rollerskating and is just a mile away. Ortonville was a tourism hot spot at the turn of the century, and parts of that time are still alive in our downtown.
Across the lake are some of the original cabins built for Chautauqua Park, a community learning & vacation center active at the turn-of-the-century and into the 1930's. Many local artists show their work downtown and we now have a new art gallery. There are several antique treasure troves to visit. I have quite a few myself and have them displayed downstairs if you'd like to shop or look on Etsy for Prairiemere. For being on the prairie, the immediate area is very hilly, thickly wooded, and situated at the south end of Big Stone Lake. You can expect to watch nature up close. My husband & I have lived here all our lives and can direct you to anything you wish to see.

My favorite things are photography, writing, sculpting, meeting new people who come through this little town & selling on Etsy. Shop name, Prairiemere. I walk everyday, love my family, reading, and growing flowers. I like food, but can't seem to commit to cooking, and always drop everything for storm clouds or a lovely sunset. As a host, I care that your beds are clean and comfortable (pillow tops), that everything is decorated well, and you get quiet for a good night's sleep. I've lived here for my forever and can direct you to nearly anything the area has to offer or know someone who can. We have a 130-year-old home located on Big Stone Lake. It's pretty here, in the middle of the prairies, we are hills, valleys, trees, and water. My motto, I suppose, would be respect everyone and the earth.
