This old homestead belonged to my belated uncle Steve, and after he passed unexpectedly, I had returned to Minnesota from California and wanted to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere for those interested in sharing a peaceful and modest property.  The old barn is a work in progress to eventually become the base to accommodating more travelers and outdoor enthusiasts as finances permit.  After working in the service industry bartending for 14 years and hosting 100+ global travelers via CouchSurfing out of San Diego, I am well versed in creating an inviting space and intend to take the necessary precautions now with the added stresses of Covid-19.  We look forward to meeting you and sharing/swapping stories around the campfire! Learn more about this land: Our property and profile are in constant change as we are in a stage of development, but we look to share our land with those seeking to enjoy a warm, welcome environment for those fellow wanderers, outdoor enthusiasts, vagabonds, and globetrotters. I am a well-traveled backpacker myself and share 5 1/2 acres with my father here in a bustling little touristy town. We enjoy the company of those who endorse small footprint, sustainable practices and I eventually intend to create an eco-hostel from the conversion of our 100 year old barn.  All we ask is that you respect the property, our neighbors, and make an effort to add one more new friend before you depart.

Gotta see the barn!
It was easy to find and they were very welcoming. The barn was renovated and awesome to use for entertainment. It’s very close to the recreation park. We did not go visit it but may on a future visit. I would recommend staying here.

Great campsite! Everything you need in a great location. Just a few miles from downtown Detroit Lake and recreation area. Logan and Dave were great hosts. Hope to get back in a few months.

Logan met me when I arrived and showed me around the property and the very cool barn that he has renovated and repurposed as a really cool common area/event space. The stay was quiet. The location is very convenient for access to the Detroit Mountain Rec Area.
