Creekwood Acres, LLC
2 sites · Lodging89 acres · St. Joseph, MinnesotaWe purchased the property in 2003 in order to escape the city life and be closer to nature. Over the years we have developed our sustainable farm, raising grass-fed cattle, free-range chickens, turkeys, pigs and vegetables. We work hard to maintain practices that heal the land and preserve it for the future. No chemicals, hormones, antibiotics, pesticides or herbicides are used here. We raised our four children here and have made many memories together as we learned to farm, build and enjoy our land. We continue to create and build towards a long-term vision, creating a haven for artisans with self-sufficient living in mind.
Welcome to our inviting custom built cottage. It is located on our property, approximately 300' from on our home on our 88 acre land plot, located 10 minutes outside of St. Joseph, MN. We are very near St. John's University and the College of St. Benedict. Hiking trails located on our property as well as nearby County parks and St. John's University. We are 6 miles from the Wobegon Trail (76 miles long) which is great for biking, roller blading, walking and running.
Come explore Creekwood Acres which is host to a great deal of wild life as well as sustainably raised animals with a process we call rejuvenative farming. Wander through the woods and listen to the birds, watch monarch butterflies, our cattle, pigs, free-range chickens, and hear the frogs, crickets and occasionally distant coyotes. The Watab Creek runs through the property which consists of fields, forest and a pond.

Side Note: We truly strive to accommodate everybody's needs and wishes. The more we host,
the more I understand some people just want to be left to enjoy a quiet weekend while others love to engage and develop a connection. I love to engage and develop connections and yet completely respect the desire for others privacy
to the utmost degree. I try to let the guest set the stage and expectations based on the first greeting and any encounters. Please feel free to state your hopes and wishes, Also..., we are passionate about our farming methods with a strong sense of homesteading.
