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!
A fresh farm breakfast can be purchased for an additional fee of $12/person. It is helpful to us if you order the breakfast prior to your arrival
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

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!
Wow - what an incredible cabin, and what amazing hosts! We had such a great time visiting the farm, and this cabins is truly a treasure built with incredible craftsmanship and attention to detail. The cabin also has everything you need for a relaxing and fun stay - great selection of board games, books and kitchen cookware & appliances. We also loved getting to know Todd and Sarah and thank you for the amazing tour of the property!
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!
Todd and Sarah are the best hosts. We stayed for one night and had a fabulous time. Everything we clean and we had everything we needed in the cabin. This is our 4th trip and the cabin and will continue to come back.
First time but not the last
Todd and Sarah were amazing hosts who know how to make some amazing eggs (and breakfast in general!). What a wonderful getaway not to far away with everything you could need. I will definitely be returning!
