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, one on the main level and one in the loft which is accessible by a ladder. A wood burning stove keeps the cottage cozy in cooler weather. There is a composting toilet in the cottage, but no running water. Electricity keeps the cottage aglow and runs a refrigerator, microwave, sound system and fans. In the future we plan to add running water with a full kitchen and shower.

Enjoy a fire in the community fire ring near the cottage. Firewood and chairs are provided. 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 $10/person.

At this time, we are taking reservations for the Cottage. We are currently working on developing campsites on the property for people who wish to tent camp.

    Wow. This place is AMAZING! It's jam packed with soul and other pleasantries. Todd and Sarah are amazing hosts. The cabin is totally fantastic. I can't recommend this place enough. It's just wonderful.
