Visit our historic 1890 train depot. This unique building is a main attraction that drew us to this property. It is an opportunity to enjoy a get away from city life. Our hope is that this is a place people can visit and enjoy natures beauty. The depot has 2 extraordinary rooms that are completely private but located on our farmstead separate from our main house. Here you can view occasional wildlife, our domestic animals (if you like) and one of the best views North Dakota has to offer.
The space you will be renting is two large rooms with high ceilings. The building is a single level historic train depot, complete with a loading dock deck. The depot has some modern features (like electricity in the bedroom) but most of its charm is from the historic character. Inside there is 1 bedroom with the original luggage rack, floor to ceiling storage cabinets (we do use these for storage but you are welcome to share them with us) wood floors, large original windows and a private entrance. There are two doors to the enter the property from the loading dock (with ramp). Once inside the two rooms are separated by a huge original glass door. The middle of the depot is a common space with a queen and a double bed, it contains an antique wood burning stove (we do ask at this time that it is for looks due to insurance purposes), a refrigerator, an antique round table with 4 chairs, a microwave, single burner, George Forman electric griddle, and a hutch holding utensils, and glass dishes. The original wood floors have not been redone in this room so you can see the splatter mark stains from feather pens dripping the ink from the ink wells. Outside the depot you will find lots of trees, a small stream, space to park, a wooded area to hike down to a public wildlife area and jumping bridge , a fire area, lawn space, and even an outhouse. We like to highlight that this is a “glamping” experience. It’s not roughing it but it’s a step back in time to a land without WiFi, cable, central air, and all those amenities we take for granted in our life. It helped us appreciate so much and we want to share that experience.
I have tried to include many photos but they do not do the view justice in my opinion.
There is potential for booking additional sleeping space in our main house (the school house is a shared space listed separately on Air BnB) or the possibility for camping or RV space (please discuss in advance). The kitchen and bathroom are in the main house (shared space). There is 24 hour access to it if you just let us know so we can keep our pets out of that area. Our kitchen, and bathroom are located in a centennial one room school house (see photos). It is connected to a centennial farm house. We will customize this experience to your needs. Kayaks may also be available to kayak the river along the bottom of our property.
A few disclaimers: Our home is under construction/updates for the most part this will only effect the shared space.
The depot is not climate controlled so we will typically be closing it down for winter months. In high temperatures we have a window A/C available to rent.
For allergy purposes I would like to add there are pet animals on the property, including dogs, cats, and horses. All animals are fixed and current on vaccinations. We do animal rescue so the animals on the property change on a regular basis.
If you are booking with a pet there will be a $75 pet deposit collected once the reservation is made. Pets are to stay on leash, off furniture and out of beds.
