Rustling Elms Resort is located 3 miles north of Ortonville on Highway 7. We have three cabins available for rent. These cabins are the best kept secret on the lake as they were once summer family homes. Big Stone Lake is a long, narrow freshwater lake and reservoir forming the border between western Minnesota and northeastern South Dakota. The lake covers 12,610 acres of surface area, stretching 26 miles from end to end and averaging around 1 mile wide, and at an elevation of 965ft is the lowest point in South Dakota.
Located three miles south of Granite Falls, Prairie’s Edge Casino Resort offers everything you need for the ideal getaway. Guests are invited to relax and enjoy one of over 160 luxurious rooms and suites, to include six whirlpool suites, two suites overlooking the river valley and four poolside rooms. All rooms include a refrigerator and microwave oven. Immerse yourself in our tranquil pool area featuring an indoor pool, wading pool, hot tub, sauna and fitness center. Guests are able to keep themselves connected with wireless internet in every room.
At The Wing N Fin Traverse Resort, we have an abundance of hunting opportunities across the entire area. From our fantastic spring turkey hunting (where most every hunter who draws a tag is successful) to our unbelievable fall and late season waterfowl and upland hunting, this little area of western Minnesota is a true hunter’s paradise. There is not only an overabundance of wildlife in our area but an abundance of public hunting grounds to boot! For those new to our area, host Todd Johnson is more than happy to give you a personal tour of the area’s public hunting grounds.
