About the property

6 Bedroom, 3 Bath With Country Views

After taking off 2016, the farmhouse will be for rent again in 2017 (starting in late March).

Gorgeous Italianate farmhouse built in 1832 offers stunning country views and tons of historic character with modern amenities. At 4,400 square feet and 10' ceilings, there's also plenty of room. 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, including a beautiful Master Bedroom and attached Master Bath on second floor. Additional bed in an extra upstairs room in (the house can therefore sleep 12). The huge kitchen/family room combo is THE place to entertain. Cozy den for reading and office with computer for work. The POOL is NOW GONE. 20 scenic acres to roam about. If you love farms, there are 10 enormous greenhouses covering 1 acre of land and five acres of vegetables, flowers and herbs outside.

This charming home would make a great place for weekend stays, family and business retreats. We are also a wedding & event facility. Check out our venue!

For information on hosting events or weddings at our property, please contact:

The cleaning deposit is $250. This is 100% refundable if house is respected, maintained and the house rental agreement followed. Parties and extra people staying in the house will nullify the deposit.

We live in an apartment completely segregated from the house and will be at the farm daily to tend to the needs of the vegetables, but we will not bother guests of the house. We will be available for assistance, however, if you have any questions or issues with your stay.

Hospitality above and beyond

  • 5 of 5

Trent and his family were really great hosts! Having the owners on site was an amazing perk as they were able to perfectly balance being kind gracious hosts while still giving our group total privacy and freedom. The house is huge, and has been maintained extremely well. It has a huge kitchen and living space that are combined which allowed our group of 13 to all be in the same space but not be overcrowded. Go stay with them, you won't regret it!

Quiet Country Living

  • 5 of 5

We shared the house with two other families while our daughters played in a softball tournament in Battle Creek. The house was a great escape to get some comfortable rest and peaceful time alone. The house included everything we needed and the owners were very kind and courteous. We would definitely rent the house again.

Making memories

  • 5 of 5

This Farmhouse was simply fabulous ~ exactly what was portrayed on website. It was very clean, spacious and perfect for our family reunion. Part of my family stayed in the house and the other half in near by hotels. When everyone was there, the house provided plenty of space. My family was so happy here we would stay again in a heartbeat. I would definitely recommend this house! Thank you Trent and Ruthie for allowing us to make family memories.

Beautiful Rural Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family found this beautiful 1800's rural farmhouse with modern amenities, to be the perfect relaxing family retreat that we were looking for. This 4,000+ sq. ft. home with large yard has plenty of space inside and out for our family of ten to spread out and unwind from everyday hectic life. The large spacious kitchen with adjoining family room was excellent for conversing while preparing our meals, so this was our primary gathering area in the mornings and evenings. Trent & Ruthie made us feel extremely welcome, and provided us with fresh vegetables from their farm if needed. If you're looking for a beautiful rural setting with peace and quiet from your busy everyday life; this is the place!

Located between Battle Creek and Marshall, the farm is in an ideal spot to just relax and enjoy the beautiful country scenery or go out exploring.

There are several great golf courses in the Battle Creek area, including one just 2 miles west. Binder Park Zoo, just 10 miles away, ranks as one of the top zoos in the country and is a must-see for kids of all ages (and those at heart).

If you'd like to roll the dice, Las Vegas-style gambling is available 3 miles away at Firekeepers Casino.

Historic Downtown Marshall is 5 miles away to the southeast, boasting a great craft brewery and many great restaurants, as well as multiple antique shops. One of the country's best historic home tours takes place the second weekend of September.

The farm itself is located in beautiful farm country on 20-acres of mostly open pasture, surrounded by corn and soybean farms. We have six large high tunnel (unheated greenhouse) structures for growing vegetables year-round.
