Wow, what a cool spot. It's nestled between two cornfields in a little woods/meadow area. Distance from parking is about 1/3 of a mile, a pleasant walk with the provided cart.

If you are a cyclist and you have a gravel bike, bring it with you ... this part of MN has an incredibly vast network of quiet gravel roads.

The structure itself is remarkably tidy, clean, and well-built. I spent a fair amount of time marveling at its features. It's definitely not just a shack, it's a very well-thought-out variation on the 'tiny house' theme.

My one regret is that I didn't bring flypaper - In midsummer, there will always be a few flies (never too many, just a few), and it's not easy to get them all out of the cabin before going to bed - then they buzzed around and woke me up in the morning. Not a criticism of the place or the setting at all, just a practical consideration for future guests.

Hosts were readily responsive with messages, etc.

Midafternoon, midsummer, what a cool spot!

I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the place. Seemed there was something attracting a massive amount of flies. When we shared the feedback it was unfortunately met with an excuse about it being fly season. Having grown up on a livestock farm this was not a usual amount of flies. We had to leave early and cut our trip short.

An incredible stay, and possibly the best place to disconnect. It doesn't get much cozier than the loft and the silence was much needed (except for some nearby hunting, but it stopped quickly!). Loved having the solar power batteries which kept our devices charged all weekend, even on a rainy day. All in all, a wonderful place to get away from your busy life and to enjoy yourself in privacy.

We had a great time at the Back 20! 3 of us slept in the tiny home and 1 used a tent just outside. The ground is very lumpy so it was hard to find a good tent space - but we knew that it would be going in based on the hosts description. We enjoyed hearing cows from a distance, coyotes at night, and finding deer and raccoon tracks in the morning on the trail. Star viewing was great, and we enjoyed the views of the cornfield and silo from the picnic table. We spent the day hiking at nearby Whitewater State Park, and evenings by the campfire.
