About this listing
The Tower Suite is newly renovated & part of the 130-year-old brick home on Big Stone Lake. 24" thick brick walls, curved glass, wood floors, yet offers all comforts of today. Hunting, fishing, hiking, biking, birding, golf, & prairies all await.
This was a family home until the 1930'd, when the upstairs was converted into two apartments. We rent the lakeside & new this year, we present the tower suite. Guests have about 1,000 sq. ft. & private entrance. We live on the main floor and try to be available if you have any questions.
We have a new driveway as of 4-20-16. It does require AWD or 4WD to maneuver the hill, otherwise parking is above on the road as usual. I can provide coffee for the c.maker. If you wish to cook, the kitchen has the necessary equipment--your food (: Otherwise, there is a sweet coffee shop about 3 blocks away. There is a small basketball court. We have lake access, though it's steep stairs to the water. It's very hilly & forested--so beautiful. The city beach & pier are just a block away.
Interaction with guests
We meet you upon arrival & that is all unless you have any questions. Paul & I know the area very well & are happy to help you with directions or any questions you have.
The lake has so many moods depending on the weather. We watch glorious sunsets & impressive storms. I walk daily from lakeshore to forested hills & enjoy the changes in nature & the animals. I take a lot of pics--if you know of Instagram see theater on my gallery, named: mbtmn. Last but not least, the people are so friendly. This is a great area for biking, fishing, golfing, & has some wonderful restaurants. There are also a lot of artists, many showing their creations in local stores.
It's easy to drive anywhere or bike--you can choose between the challenging hills or the flat bike friendly areas & the 10 mile bike tour.
Other things to note
We have a dog downstairs & I'll be sure to keep home out of your way. If you like dogs, he's a friendly black lab.
We try to provide a clean, quiet sleep environment. Quiet hours 11p.m. to 10a.m. The apartment is smoke and pet-free. Guests are expected to clean the dishes and kitchen after each use. Please put down storm windows if a storm is approaching. Keep windows and doors shut if AC or heat is on. We ask that all items used to decorate the apartment stay in the apartment, though I'm always open to a sale, so keep an itemized list and the values. Please ask if you would like to purchase anything from our apartment inventories.

My favorite things are photography, writing, sculpting, and meeting new people who come through this little town. 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. I have lots of connections to help you have a great time. 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.
