About Jill (daily contact) and Joan
Hi! I grew up in Kansas City, KS, raised my children in Kansas and moved here in 2002 while obtaining my PhD in English. I'm a retired English professor teacher and my wonderful wife Joan works for the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls. We love our home and land, especially the peace that seems to emanate from it--so many of our guests comment on that as well. I'm currently working on a book about small towns.
Jill (daily contact) and Joan purchased this house in 2011
Why Jill (daily contact) and Joan chose Burtrum
We built the cottage in 2011 as a guest cottage. It's since served as Joan's music studio and now this. It has lots of interesting touches as well as a cozy, yet open feel. The large deck offers a roomy place to entertain and/or relax. The seating under the covered porch and the outdoor breakfast nook offer a great place for morning coffee or relaxing throughout the day. Warm up by the fire inside or brave skiing, snowmobiling, or sledding. Come and remember what the night sky looks like without light pollution!
What makes this house unique
It offers privacy without isolation. Street access to small town grocery, gas station and bar/grill as well as Cynthia's, an excellent restaurant, is just down the street from our property. Our residence, while also on property, is a comfortable distance away to allow us to answer your needs quickly but not be invasive. Our 2-acre property is fenced, allowing all but the smallest dogs the opportunity to run off leash. Our 2 dogs, 3 cats, and 12 chickens have been our best ambassadors! Most of our guests comment in our guest book how much they enjoyed them. We offer fresh eggs to our guests as well!
