There are over 4,500 square feet of space and ample bedrooms and baths for a large group of people. The kitchen is set-up for entertaining!

It is also conveniently located right in between Battle Creek and Marshall and is only a 5 minute drive to both I-69 and I-94.

Country living at its best!
Where to start? Sadie, the farm dog, welcomed our group of 9 women for a weekend getaway. Trent, the property owner, was not far behind with fresh-picked tomatoes. He remained unobtrusively available for questions through the weekend. The kitchen is spacious, very well equipped and the perfect gathering spot with a comfortable seating area adjacent to the kitchen. There’s a tv viewing room adjacent as well with more great seating. There’s a 3rd gathering room with a lovely working fireplace and lastly, a strap around porch that offered cooling breezes. There was not an uncomfortable bed in the place, all covered in brightly colored quilts that compliment the beautiful artwork that covers the walls throughout the house. Enough bathrooms for 9 women-need I say more! Twenty minutes to Marshall for shopping and many dining options. The farm is a venue for country themed weddings as well. The sunflower and zinnia gardens provided bright color to the overall bucolic setting of the farmhouse. Refreshing and relaxing. Best girls’ weekend!
Very nice house for our girls weekend!
We really liked this home in Marshall. It's out in the country...very quiet and peaceful. The house is very spacious and decorated nicely. We liked the big kitchen and living room area that we could all congregate in to visit and relax. The bedrooms were a comfortable size, but yet cozy. We enjoyed our weekend at the house and all that Marshall has to offer.
Spacious Farmhouse, Well Appointed and Super-Responsive Hosts
While planning a family reunion, we found this farmhouse just minutes away from downtown Marshall. The rooms were all beautifully large, and there was plenty of living space for our group of 10. The large kitchen made it a natural gathering space, while the screened in porch was used to watch the beautiful sunsets. Trent was extremely responsive, even when I asked a question more than once. There were simple instructions upon arrival, and "check-out" was extremely easy as well. We would definitely rent this place again!
very nice place for our large family to have a weekend together
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!!
Roomy and comfortable Farm house
It was a perfect fit for our girls weekend! Roomy and ocmfortsble
Amazing, Beautiful, Comfortable & Memorable
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!
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.
