Hospitality House on Dayton Lake

Promote Your Page Too

Six acres of woods, water, deer and pasture on Dayton Lake near Fergus Falls. Sunrise over the water and sunset over farmland. Far enough from the city to enjoy the singing of birds but only ten minutes from town. Our home is new, inviting, and designed for ease. The new country kitchen is filled with plants, light and the best view in the state. The bedrooms are warm in the winter, cool in the summer and each room has a wonderful view.

Meals are home made and include family favorites and the types of foods that we all enjoy. Special diets are available, but they always taste better when the meal is hot and served with the family.

One client craved quality ice cream for three years while in the nursing home. Her first month at Dayton Lake she enjoyed Breyer's every night. Mission accomplished.

Hospitality House on Dayton Lake is a nursing home alternative for women located in Fergus Falls Otter Tail County Minnesota. We provide care similar to an institutional nursing home at all levels from A through K, but we do this in a non-institutional setting....a loving home. There are many similarities between adult foster care, assisted living, board and care with services, and normal homes plus programs, but we consider our home to be a family. Why be confined to a nursing home when you could be living in a beautiful Minnesota lake home with friends?
