Intro: We moved from the Twin Cities many years ago and have not looked back. Our 15-acres just 35 minutes south of the Twin Cities features vineyards, wild berries and 8 acres of wonderful woods with wildlife and more to enjoy!

The Cannon River valley near Northfield is mostly flat, but as you move west towards Lonsdale, the topography becomes beautiful rolling hills that are the perfect setting for some of the first vineyards in Minnesota. Today, many vineyards dot our local landscape. In addition to the vineyards, our land contains a forest which is part of the original "Big Woods". When pioneers first came to the area, this large forest covered much of southern and central Minnesota. "Big Woods State Park" is just 35 minutes from us in Nerstrand. Our hiking trails on the property bring you from vineyard to woods to the wildflowers in summer. We love it and hope you will too.
Super hosts with a great cabin in the woods. The cabin is up a hill behind the house and has everything you need for a couple or a few friends. We enjoyed a wood-fired sauna, snowshoed the property and visited the chickens and cows as well as explored the area. Highly recommend a visit to the pottery studio of St Johns University as well as Wildwood park with both hiking and groomed cross-county ski trails. Plenty of books to read and playing cards. Most inmportantly, quiet. Enjoy your time and unwind.
