“A deer place”
Reviewed October 2, 2006

Situated behind a corn field, Stoney Run Lodge is an old farmhouse near Ortonville, Minnesota, available for hunting parties, family reunions, or people with other pursuits in an area not known for hotels. We rented the house for two nights while conducting a geneology search nearby. We felt as if we'd gone back in time---everything was the way Grandma would have left it. Our choice of bedrooms (the house has room for ten people, more if some sleep in the indoor porch) and bathrooms (there are two, each with a shower). Full laundry facilities w/detergent. Adjacent buildings for pool and games. A horseshoe pit. Outdoor porch and grill. Kitchen complete with everything you'll need, including dishes, cooking ware, coffee maker w/coffee, and distilled water dispenser. Hiking and snowmobile trails, Dish TV. There was also a bonus. On our second night, in the twilight hour just after the sun had set, five deer---two does and three fawns---gamboled across the lawn, browsing for food. After nibbling for awhile, they began what looked like a dance, mothers jumping over fawns, fawns quickly catching on but able only to jump over each other. We watched for about twenty minutes, after which the deer disappeared around a corner of the corn field. We put them down as the most "Unexpected Experience" of the trip.

  • Liked — You could tell what friendly, thoughtful people owned and kept up this property.
  • Disliked — The DishTV received only local channels. We think the dish was not properly aimed or else that channels were unavailable because of cloudy skies.
  • Tips/Secrets — Look out the window for deer.
  • Stayed September 2006, traveled as a couple
