We don't have a camper, but we've hosted many guests. We live in the country and have plenty of land. We are a homeschooling family with 3 kids and enjoy meeting new people to hear their stories. You can tap into our well water if a hose can reach. Cell phones don't get signal in our valley; you might pick up Lemke Guest on wifi. Star viewing can be quite good here, and fireflies give a good show in the summer months. All dogs must be leashed since we have chickens. Our driveway is a dead-end, so you need to turn around. Long rigs have turned around before, but it has challenged some drivers. Suggested Local Attractions: We are 10 minutes from the Root River Bike Trail (http://www.rootrivertrail.org/site/index.php) in either Houston or Rushford. The Creamery in Rushford has ice cream plus menu items. Houston has a nature center (http://www.houstonnaturecenter.com/) and nice Natural Playground. If you bike out of Lanesboro, watch for the Whalan pie shop. We are 20 minutes from Winona, MN and 30 minutes from La Crosse, WI. Both of these cities are on the Mississippi with likely bald eagle viewing. Try the Free Range Exchange in Hokah for breakfast or lunch items to-go. Locally sourced. We are 60 minutes from Mayo Clinic. Our house is located in a scenic bluff valley, and deer are common here.

We have all really loved our stay with this wonderful family. Our children loved hanging out and playing with their children. The adults enjoyed chatting too. The spot is beautiful and peaceful. The family are generous and kind. Thank you so much for having us and we so wished we could have stayed longer!!

We visited during the summer when a lush and tall show of wildflowers carpeted the bluffs all around. Not only is this home located in a beautiful area but this busy family left a beautiful impression in my heart, filling me with joy and hope. In my travels I’m finding that although our world experiences trouble, still, it is filled with beautiful people who have hearts full of good and who enjoy offering hospitality and the giving of themselves, reminding us that there truly is always hope!

Wonderful place in a beautiful valley. We were welcomed by the most amazing family, interesting to listen to and interested in our stories. Truly quiet and natural environment, birds and deer to watch. Beautiful experience!

We found peace, quiet, and privacy in a very rural area surrounded by beautiful hills(bluffs). Mary was very helpful with getting us settled in and we later enjoyed a nice chat with her and her family on their deck overlooking their property. Incidentally, we had no trouble at all with getting our 30 foot trailer and pickup truck turned around in their driveway.
