We 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. Our cozy cottage was built by our family using lumber sawn on our property. There are two double beds up in the loft accessible by ladder and one queen size sofa sleeper on the main level . A wood burning stove keeps the cottage cozy in cooler weather. There is a composting sawdust toilet in the cottage and an exterior outhouse, running water with a hot shower. Electricity keeps the cottage aglow and runs a refrigerator, microwave, sound system and fans. Also available for your convenience, an apartment size range/oven. Enjoy a fire in a private fire ring near the cottage. Firewood available for purchase (for exterior fire ring). Enjoy a wood-fired sauna upon request. The sauna has been known to get quite hot! At this time, we are taking reservations for the Cottage. We are currently working on developing campsites and another rustic cabin on the property for people who wish to tent camp with a goal of creating a unique experience and wonderful memories. Theres so much more to come and your current support to help with our reinvestment in Creekwood Acres is so greatly appreciated!!! 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. If your are interested in learning more about regenerative farming or would like to secure a plot of land of your own, but are unable to secure financing..., our Realestate holdings company may be able to help finance that for you. Our quest with this thought would be to bring people back to the land in a holistic, spiritual, and conscientious manner. Todd

Wonderful winter retreat
This was our second time here, and definitely won't be the last! Incredibly cozy winter retreat. And the sauna is *definitely* worth it.

Cozy family retreat!
We came back for our second stay and brought the kids (12 and 14) this time. They loved soaking in the calm, natural "vibe" as they would say. 24 hrs felt like much longer as we're leaving feeling relaxed and full of memories of board games, sauna, reading, and hiking around in the snow. Thank you Sarah & Todd

Fabulous friend time
We loved everything about this place. We paid extra for the sauna and breakfast - both WELL worth it. We hiked beautiful trails, gazed at stars, played games inside and had the best time in this sweet, cozy cabin. Don’t hesitate- just book it!

Beautiful and special place!
Todd & Sarah's cottage was fantastic. The property is beautiful, and the cottage was cozy and inviting. We enjoyed the warm fire, a sauna in the evening, and farm fresh eggs in the morning. Todd & Sarah communicated well, and everything went so smoothly. We would definitely want to come back here again. Highly recommend!

We absolutely loved Todd and Sarah’s property and had everything we needed for our short stay. Todd and Sarah are very accommodating and have a wonderful place here. They have put a lot of thought into the amenities provided and how everything is set up. My son really enjoyed the loft area and the animals. We can’t wait to come back and stay longer. Perfect place to get away and find some peace and quiet, yet still close to town!

The cottage is a very sweet oasis. It is thoughtfully furnished and supplied, clean and comfortable. Todd, Sarah and their dogs are very welcoming! Our group only had one night but everything was easy and seamless so that we could relax and enjoy our stay to the fullest. We highly recommend it and hope to be back again ourselves.

Mini getaway!
We loved being able to stay in the Creekwood cottage. It was so easy to pack and leave home quickly because the cottage is so well equipped! The cottage has a hand crafted woodsy feel throughout, total privacy, beautiful views from inside and outside, great connection to nature even a sauna, hot shower, and farm fresh breakfast available. We felt refreshed after just one night! Thank you for this gem!

Wonderful Stay
Our time at Todd & Sarah's Creekwood Cabin was fantastic! The location was close to the city yet far enough for the feel of a true getaway. Their land is gorgeous. It was so much fun wandering the trails with their dog Frances and soaking it all in. Todd and Sarah were the perfect hosts. We had such a great time getting to know them and learn about their passion for animals and the land. They gave us space to enjoy the best Mother's Day I've ever had, complete with the most delicious homemade breakfast. The minute we stepped foot into the cabin our kids were asking when they could come back and as we left they said it felt like we had been visiting family. We all loved it! Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

Cozy Cabin
We stayed over a cold winter weekend, and the cabin was so cozy and warm with the wood stove! It is very unique and tucked in a beautiful part of the farm. We woke up to cattle outside the first morning and saw stars at night! Todd and Sarah were very friendly and gave us a tour of the land and we played with their dogs. What a treat!

Creekwood Cottage was perfect for me for a last-minute solo getaway. Lovely, cozy cottage with beautiful property to meander on. Todd and Sarah were great hosts - respectful of privacy, but very available for questions...though all info was so clearly laid out that I never really had any!

Creekwood Cottage
This place has all the characteristics you'd want in a country retreat. The cottage is behind a small hillcrest from the farm house (providing some privacy), while the other side of the property has walking trails that are fun to explore in the evening. There's a fire pit outside, numerous outdoor chairs and a table for sitting and admiring the surrounding oak trees. Also included are wifi, a full kitchenette, a shower, a wood stove for cooler months, and pretty much all the amenities you could want. The hosts built the cabin themselves and it shows in the character of the place. Last but not least, the hosts are friendly and great to talk to. Highly recommended.
