About Mary K. Malone

My husband grew up 1/4 mile south of this property and we purchased the farmstead 1/4 mile north of property 39 years ago. We enjoy the country life. We have raised 5 daughters who have throughly enjoyed creek that runs through property as they were growing up.

Mary K. Malone purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Mary K. Malone chose Minnesota

This property borders our farmstead. We rented the cropland for over ten years. In October of 2012 we had opportunity to purchase the farm to expand our crop farm operation. Big decision for us was do we demolish the old farm house or fix it up as rental. We choose to fix it up.

What makes this farmhouse unique

I fell in love with the character of this old house. Its open staircase, old painted woodwork, hardwood floors and great countryside views from the large windows are a delight to share with other. I have seen deer and wild turkeys many times through these windows as we were fixing this old house up.

Can we give six stars!?! Amazing place to experience farm life in rural Minnesota

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home to get away to a place of peace and quiet while some of our kids were at a camp in Western Minnesota. While in a rural setting (& very quiet) the home is not too far from the small town of Wadena. We were pleasantly surprised with just how quiet and peaceful it was, yet with opportunities to be busy and explore the farm, which made for some great memories for us, and our four youngest children who were with us.

Adventures found us feeding lambs, touring the farm, walking and kayaking down the creek, finding tree houses, exploring corn fields, and biking at a nearby mountain bike park (10 min away). We spent much more time at the house than we thought we would, not needing to go far to find things to do. The yard is nice and large, plenty enough for lots of running, throwing ball, playing games, campfires, s'mores, even chasing fireflies - which for us folk from Colorado was a very rare treat!

The home was well kept, stays nice and cool on hot days, offered a place of rest and relaxation from our adventures. We played board games, built a puzzle on the sitting room table and watched an occasional movie on the tv via Netflix. (FYI, we have verizon and had great LTE coverage at the home. Their DVD player has Netflix and we connected to that by way of my iphones hot spot. Worked just fine!).

The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals in house - and even bake brownies, of course!

Water was a bit strange for us, but we might be sensitive based on what we are used to. It is connected to a filter but we still chose to bring in bottled water.

Greg and Mary and their daughter Nichole were awesome hosts and went out of their way to make our stay great at every turn. They quickly became friends, rather than mere hosts.

All-in-all, a most awesome experience, much more than we had expected. We will most definitely be going back with the entire family!!!

This was our second time there and the accomadations are great for our group-4 couples with plenty of space for everyone. Definitely a place we would stay at again! Many thanks to Greg and Mary for making our stay so relaxing and enjoyable.

There's No Place Like Home

  • 5 of 5

There's no place like home, and that is exactly how you will feel after staying on Greg and Mary's farm. Our family had a reunion and a wedding to attend to while in Minnesota. Greg and Mary immediately made us feel like family. Whether it be touring around on the 4-Wheelers or picking fresh veggies from the garden, every moment spent on this farm was enjoyed by all. The house is cute, yet spacious. Nothing was more rewarding than evening fires capped off with star gazing and laughter. Greg and Mary constantly went out of their way to ensure we had the best vacation, despite the weather.

After spending the last 12 days here, I can say without any doubt that my family wouldn't stay anywhere else in Minnesota. You and your family will love it here!

Thank you so much Greg and Mary!

Family FUN

  • 5 of 5

My sister and my family had an amazing and relaxing time on the Malone's farmhouse. They were very cordial and hospitable! We had fun collecting fresh eggs in the morning for an amazing breakfast , tubing down the creek in the afternoon and we still had time in the evening to praise the Lord during the Hopefest concerts! Thank you for a fantabulous time!

Family reunion/graduation

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Very cozy and charming! The owners are very welcoming and provide everything you need for a relaxing get away! The kids enjoyed bottle feeding the lambs, and playing in the private creek. Loved the country, and seeing all the amish buggies on Sunday. The camp fire topped off the weekend! Would highly recommend!!

Back again

This was my third time at this delightful cozy guest house. Spent time snowshoeing with others on the property. Every thing we needed as a group of siblings and in-laws gathered to spend time together. Thanks again Mary and Greg for sharing this treasure.
