The Summer Kitchen is a restored building on our historic farm place. This open concept space, has a kitchen with gas stove, and bottled water. Nestled along the edge of the farm yard and a wooded area. This off the grid space, has a camp propane heated shower, and composting boat toilet. A farm experience allows guests to help feed chickens, gather eggs, feed calves, garden and pet the horse. A trail in the woods is great for exploring. Fire pit and seating near summer kitchen.
“I stayed at the Summer Kitchen during a week-long course at nearby Lac qui Parle State Park. It was the perfect place for me come back to after class! It is very spacious and open, with plenty of windows for light and air. The week I was there, the temperatures during the day were in the high 80s, but the sleeping loft was comforable becase of high ceilings, huge window and and ceiling fan. The kitchen had everything I needed. If you're planning to come with several people, you might want to bring a cooler for some things, since the refrigerator is dorm-size. I had great reception for my mobile phone and was able to use it as a hotspot for internet access when I was working on a class assignment. The hosts Amy and David are very responsive to any questions or needs. For example, one evening I had a problem with water pressure in the kitchen. David diagnosed and fixed the problem within about 10 minutes. Amy is a passionate and enthusiastic expert on the prairie biome of this beautiful area. Ask her stuff! Don't miss looking at constellations in the dark night sky, visiting Lac qui Parle State Park, and noshing at Talking Waters brewery in Montevideo (closed Monday & Tuesday).”
This has been a wonderful undertaking, preparing my rental house into an airbnb. I seen lots of potential and need for guests to be able to have a clean, comfortable and super private, spacious living space for their stay while out and about on whatever they might be doing, weather it be visiting with family, out hunting, or on their road trip just exploring what Western Minnesota has to offer!
Old world charm and history surround you on this 1884 farm. Modern kitchen, private quiet rooms, and a separate cabin with bunk bed. Home-cooked breakfast provided.
“We stayed at Glenn's place so we could do some Little House on the Prairie tourist activities (<1 hour away from Walnut Grove). Glenn and Megan were fabulous hosts for our prairie adventure. Clarkfield, and all of western MN, is gorgeous and there is no better way to appreciate the beauty of the prairie than on this generations old farm. It's an old farm house, but has AC and other modern amenities and we all slept really well. Glenn and Megan were so generous with their time and spirit with our daughters, letting them help collect eggs and answering all of their questions about farm life. Many of the highlights were chicken-related - listening to the roosters different squawks, watching the chickens run around, picking eggs, and having farm fresh eggs for breakfast! Our daughters wanted to stay longer because they didn't get to spend enough time on the farm. We will definitely visit again! Full disclosure, being an introvert, I was a little apprehensive about staying at an Airbnb with the hosts present, but Glenn and Megan made us feel at home - it was like being with old friends or family and I could just relax.”
