Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Mankato, Minnesota
Cozy, warm and inviting-- all in an excellent location. This completely remodeled farmhouse is located on almost 8 wooded acres, just a few short minutes from downtown Mankato.

In the warm months, cross the street and find yourself on miles of walking, running and biking trails connected to the Red Jacket Trail system. Head down the road 1/2 a mile and spend the weekend mountain biking at Mt Kato or pack your kayak or canoe and make your way to the Blue Earth River just a mile down the road. Grab the family and visit any number of the many recreational lakes in the area, several within 20 minutes of the house. Or stay home, grill and eat out on the patio and catch fireflies in the yard.

In the winter months, watch the downhill skiers and snowboarders ski the front side of Mt Kato from your living room window while comfortably nestled...

Absolutely loved it. Great price as well. We would expect to pay over $150 a night for a place like that in the area where we live.

I'll keep it short: it was perfect. I traveled with my mother and 2 young boys and it was wonderful. The house was clean; beautifully decorated and, well, just downright charming! We got snow and rain and had to spend a lot of time indoors--but time was cherished by the fireplace. There were several board games, toys for the kids,...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Damage deposit is 100% refundable after check out. If you pay through personal check, you can write a separate check for the deposit (to be returned to you or destroyed after your stay), AND the turnover fee is waived. Please message me for details.

Any events that you wish to hold at the farmhouse, including a party, family reunion, etc, must be communicated to me. Additionally, there is $100 fee to host a gathering at the house. If an event is hosted without permission, the deposit will be forfeited. Large gatherings are very hard on the farmhouse's antique well and septic system, so we try to limit them. For the same reason, please be accurate about the number of people in your party in order to retain your deposit.

About the neighbourhood
Just 3 minutes from downtown Mankato, this property is located in a river valley, a rare and beautiful section of the southern Minnesota region. The house is across the street from a protected land area and trail system; there is only one visible neighbor from the home. The property is treed behind the house, and these woods create a sense of seclusion while providing a place for kids to explore. Mt Kato, the local ski hill and mountain biking area, is within walking distance from the house. Additionally, the Seven Mile trail system offering mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding is located within 10/15 minutes of the house (on Hwy 160).

Mankato has a healthy diversity of restaurants and shopping as well as music and performances at various locations downtown, including the civic...
