The SpaceEnjoy the quiet seclusion of the Thorstein Veblen Farmstead National Historic Landmark. The farm was established on virgin prairie in 1867 by Norwegian immigrants Thomas and Kari Veblen and was the childhood home of their son, internationally recognized economist and social critic, Thorstein Veblen. In l981, after many years of neglect, the farm was designated a National Historic Landmark in honor of Thorstein Veblen's stature as a noted American thinker. In addition to being an important historic site the property is also a flower farm providing an abundance of sustainably-raised seasonal cut flowers for local subscribers, area florists, weddings and other events, as well as special orders for individuals. Nerstrand Big Woods State Park is just a stone's throw away if you would like to enjoy the area's spring wild flowers (including the rare Dwarf Trout Lily), do some bird watching, experience the dramatic fall colors, or snowshoe miles of trails. If a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life is what you need then come sit on the porch, turn off your phone and get lost in a good book. It's a scenic 20 minute drive into Northfield, home of St. Olaf and Carleton colleges and Defeat of Jesse James Days, Minnesota's largest outstate community festival, and about an hour's drive to the Twin Cities, Rochester, and Red Wing. If you need help making plans we can provide information about local attractions, events, and shopping. We have three second-floor bedrooms available. This listing is for the largest bedroom with a queen size bed, TV and sunny morning exposure. Please see separate listings for the other two bedrooms. A shared bathroom is just steps away from all three bedrooms. The stairs are somewhat steep, as should be expected for a 150 year old farmhouse. but are manageable by anyone of average fitness. We welcome families, but ask that children be at least eight years old because the farmhouse isn't childproof. A simple, mostly-organic breakfast of yogurt, homemade granola, fresh fruit, toast, orange juice, and coffee, tea, and milk, provided. Please let us know about any food allergies or restrictions so we can accommodate your needs. You'll find cookies in the cookie jar or some other tasty treat for an evening snack compliments of the resident baker. Lunch and dinner options abound. There are several restaurants in nearby towns or, for a reasonable charge, we can provide you with a delectable picnic lunch to take along while you explore an area park or have an intimate picnic in the garden at the farm. A popular dinner option is to join us for a delicious seasonal, local-foods dinner in the evening at the farm. Conversations are lively and the price is comparable to area restaurants--paid to the host at the end of your stay (sorry, no credit cards for this service). Details can be worked out after your reservation is confirmed. We share the farm with our two friendly cats, Teasel and Big Kitty and we'd love to share the beauty and peace of our flower farm on the prairie with you as well. This is a working farm so reservations need to be made at least 48 hours prior to your stay. See the farm on Youtube! Guest AccessThe first and second floors and porches of the farmhouse as well as the grounds and flower gardens. Interaction with GuestsStaying at the farm can be filled with wide-ranging conversations or it can be a time of quiet contemplation, we take our cue from each guest. The NeighborhoodThe farm is it's own serenely quiet world apart. The thing most people comment on after staying here is the QUIET. It's a flower farm in the country with a very long driveway so there's rarely road noise and the nearest neighbor is 1/3 of a mile away. Once you've enjoyed what could be the quietest night of sleep ever you can visit Big Woods State Park. It's just down the road and has miles of trails, waterfalls and wildflowers.

She hides upstairs in our bedroom whenever we have guests. However, when we do not have guests, she roams through the house. (She is always kept out of the guest bedrooms) So if you are sensitive to cats this may not be a good fit. We have WiFi throughout the house. Interaction with GuestsOne of us is often home during the day and evening. We are available for help and questions. I (Marie) teach yoga and John works for the Northfield school district. The entrance to and from the suite does not go through our part of the house, so you may not see much of us. We are always happy to answer questions and give information about the area.

    The SpaceTHE PERFECT PLACE TO WRITE A NOVEL IN- this open and airy apartment with loft-style pipes venting the A/C under the 11-foot ceilings, with old-windows, and original hardwood floors, centered in a town overflowing with history, is atmosphere at its best. The 2ND FLOOR UNIT has a PRIVATE ENTRANCE and STAIRCASE, the entry to which is just large enough to store a bicycle. A FULL KITCHEN (with a DISHWASHER, and ALL DISHES AND UTENSILS) opens to a small dining area and OPEN LIVING ROOM-- complete with CABLE TV (flat screen), and a fold-out FULL-SIZED SOFA BED. Smaller adjacent rooms contain: a mid-sized bathroom with TUB AND SHOWER, rear utility room with WASHER AND DRYER, and a master bedroom boasting a QUEEN-SIZED platform bed and MEMORY-FOAM MATTRESS. The unit as a whole washes in light from the 8-foot tall picture windows that look out onto historic Division Street every afternoon. There is no breakfast included with this rental, but the unit is directly above a bagel shop and next door to a (VERY GOOD AND RECOMMENDED) coffee shop. Roughly 10-12 restaurants are within the immediate vicinity (on Division St/side/surrounding), and another 15-20 are less than a 5 min drive, or 15 min bike ride. Street parking is necessary, however, excluding Jessie James Days (in early September) or during any "sporadic" large community events, finding a spot within a block of the unit is rarely difficult. Permit free parking is available on most side streets and a free public parking lot is directly behind the building. Guest AccessGuests have access to the entire apartment- this is not a "shared living arrangement". That includes all kitchen utensils and the washer/dryer inside the unit. Interaction with GuestsI currently live/travel between 3 different states for work. This is where I live when in Minnesota, and if it is being rented, I am elsewhere. However, Keller Williams, two doors down from the unit entrance, can assist renters with any needs they have during their stay. The NeighborhoodBecause it's the home of both Carleton and St. Olaf Colleges- two near-ivy-league liberal Arts universities, at its core, Northfield is a bohemian, artsy, little college town. There is FANTASTIC shopping lining Division street- especially for the "retro-weird" and "one-of-a-kind-but-in-a-cool-way-not-an-expensive-way" type of shopper. Stores like "The Local Joint" fill their racks with "used" items for sale -- only, it seems as if they page through all the "normal" vintage/2nd-hand stores for you, removing all the crap, and display only the neatest gems you'd expect to find there. A block down, another store sells recycled metal peices which have been battered, twisted, and framed into beautiful jewelry by an artsian duo of father and son. It's secondary fame (or primary, depending on who you ask,) comes from the town rising up against, and hence, defeating Jesse James' on the James gang's subsequent last robbery attempt. Most of the gang died in the uprising, and is considered chiefly responsible for ending Jesse James' career in banditry. The Defeat of Jesse James Days Festival hosted in Northfield the first weekend September is one of the largest small town festivals in the country. Getting AroundNorthfield is a small town and few forms of public transit exist for non-students. There is Northfield Taxi is available 24 hours a day, and Northfield Transit or "The Transit"- the town's shuttle company- is available most weekday work hours. The contact information for both companies is posted in the apartment. There is also an airport/commuter shuttle service to and from Northfield offered through EcoTrans: (URL HIDDEN) You can walk/bike just about anywhere in Northfield- and this apartment is in the center of it all (and literally a few hundred feet from Carleton's Campus) - HOWEVER- the weather can make that and "unprotected excursion" an epic undertaking throughout the Midwestern winter season, therefore having your own vehicle is highly recommended. Furthermore, though St Olaf College is only a mile or so away, it is situated up on a high hill above the town, regular commuters to that campus may find doing the trek by foot/bike a bit daunting.

The Neighbourhood is three blocks walking distance from the beautiful small down town, that although very quite still bustles with a vibrant coffee house, English style pub, ethnic eateries, an Aveda hair salons, and art galleries. The two Liberal arts colleges lend a sophistication to this town without taking any from it's rustic rural charm. It has a great feel!

I live upstairs and create Art in my studio attached to the garage at the back of my property. I am often tending to my gardens and landscape, another outlet where I can express my desire to delight. The NeighborhoodMy little neighborhood is made up of three artist's homes, a tiny gas station owned by John, my lovely neighbor Donna, and across the street several families cluster around a shared driveway. We are just off Woodley and Division, a bustling intersection, which is the pulse of the neighborhood. Getting AroundNorthfield Lines has daily service to the Mall of America, MSP airport, and downtown Minneapolis and their bus stop is just a few blocks from here. We have a local taxi service that charges $6 a person to anywhere in Northfield. Other Things to NoteThis is a very old house with uneven floors, stairs that creak, and signs of age. She has weathered many seasons and provided shelter and comfort to many people and families. A super convenient location, you are just blocks from our picturesque downtown, farmer's market, and off the bustling corner of Woodley and Division Streets. When you arrive , you could simply park your car here, and do your whole stay on foot. Or, we have a local taxi service that charges just $6 a person to shuttle you anywhere in Northfield. Pretty much everything is available within a short walking distance. I am in diverse neighborhood with a charming gas station owned by John, several artists and their studios, retired people, and multi-family dwellings.
