Overview

About the property

6 Bedroom, 3 Bath With Country Views

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.

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.

very nice place for our large family to have a weekend together

  • 4 of 5

The property was as advertised and was very clean. The large kitchen area and great room were excellent for our large group. It's very quiet and night which makes for a great night's sleep!! Flowers were just beginning to bloom so we didn't get the full experience at this time of year but would definitely come back!!

Amazing, Beautiful, Comfortable & Memorable

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful farm home for 3 nights to attended a family celebration. The six bedrooms and three bathrooms were just perfect for our other brothers, sisters and kids to have privacy. The three family rooms/ sitting rooms were perfect for socializing and the kitchen island was great for everyone to sit and stand around. The owners were a pleasure to meet and went above and beyond in customer service. The property is just a short drive into the Marshall’s downtown area. We will stay here again next time we are in the area. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely property!

Idyllic scenery and warm hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We just had the most wonderful stay at this farmhouse in Marshall. The home was so warm and cozy and beautiful. They have done a beautiful job of maintaining the character of the home while also updating it with modern conveniences and comforts. We bought some of the produce from the farm during our stay and it was so delicious. We even tried a Brussel sprout and kale hybrid vegetable that we had never had before. Trent and his wife were so accommodating and kind. They were very available for helping us with anything we might need while also making us feel like we had the whole place to ourselves. We couldn't have had a better experience and we hope to come back again!!

Spacious and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

So many nice things have been said about this place and the hosts and I agree with all of them. We had a group of 4 couples and every person thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The house is in great shape, neatly decorated, and had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. It was a joy to stay here!

Great house for a large group gathering

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Farmhouse for an Olivet College reunion weekend. Everyone in our group appreciated the space and proximity to Marshall restaurants and a short drive to Olivet. We will be back!

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.
