The Lincoln House was built in 1895, and was "A Grand Home" when it was first built. Over the years different owners changed things, and for the last year it has been our labor of love to restore and renovate. Set on two city lots, the yard is large bordered on the west side by lilac bushes and overlooking the foot of Big Stone Lake. Located a block and a half up from the Big Stone County Courthouse, it provides easy access to Ortonville's main business street (2nd St.), and is within walking distance of a few stores, churches, bars/restaurants, grocery store, convenience store, banks and post office. The Ortonville Hospital and Golf Course are minutes away by car. There is a small playground with swings and a slide a two blocks away.
As you enter the property you will be in a enclosed porch that spans the entire width of the house, and offers a casual bright social area with views of the foot of Big Stone Lake. Inside is a large living space, also the full width of the house, with a 3/4 bath (including an awesome rain shower) tucked under the stair case. The back of the house offers a large kitchen (fully stocked for preparing and serving meals (you just bring the food), and a dining room that can easily accommodate 8 or more. Upstairs off a bright open hallway are three large bedrooms and a full bath (soon with laundry). One bedroom is set up with two twin beds, and can easily accommodate a pack-n-play (3 are available at the property), Two bedrooms are setup with king size beds, but can easily be split into two XL twin beds if needed. One of these king bedrooms can also easily accommodate a pack-n-play.
All the floors in the property have been redone, along with fresh paint, and fixtures through out the house. Seating in the living spaces is plentiful and comfortable. This property is designed and furnished as a place for families to gather and enjoy each other's company. It is also a great house for fishermen, hunters or a gal's getaway weekend.
Special events (bridal or baby showers for example) will be considered on a case by case basis.
Well behaved dogs are welcome (there is a pet fee). We are dog lovers, and we know that even the best dogs can mis-behave when in new circumstances, but that owners love to have their dogs with them when they travel. In order to keep our pet friendly policy in place, we ask owners to please clean up after their furry friends inside and out, respect the neighbors by keeping them on the property and barking to a minimum. We do request that all dogs be kenneled if left alone at the property, and we can provide a kennel if necessary.
