Once a country school  built in 1938 and used into the 1960's, this property with 5 wooded acres surrounded by pasture and farmland, has been our family home since 1982. Our family home schooled our 4 children here.

Pitch your tent in our woods, just a short walk in from the road. Campsite 1 is close to the road and house,  just about  50 paces in from the road. Campsite 2 is farther into the woods, uphill and offers more privacy.

The night and early morning sounds can be incredible! Coyotes, owls, loons,  frogs, sandhill cranes, wild turkey, cattle, sheep and chickens too.            

 You will have much privacy , but we also have a large fire ring near the house if you would like to join our family for s'mores in the evening. 

While we currently do not have many amenities, we do offer peace and quiet , darkness , nature sounds , and   campfires.  

While our property does not include a lake , there are many within a few short miles.

The small town of Avon on 1-94 is just 3 1/2 miles away. It offers access to the 65 mile long Lake Wobegon bike trail, the Avon beach,  a fishing pier, and legendary "Fisher's Club , home of the best darn walleye, all  on Middle Spunk Lake. 

St John's University is a few short scenic miles away.   Hiking trails, maple syrup festival, bird watching, fall colors ... and many more reasons to visit this Benedictine campus.

Stearns county has 8 county parks with miles of hiking trails. 

Birdwatching is excellent year around.

Avon Hills Folk School is little over a mile away.

El Rancho Manana is within 8 miles and offers horseback riding.

We currently only offer an open air composting toilet.
