About the Property
6 Bedroom, 3 Bath With Country Views
Gorgeous Italianate farmhouse built in 1832 offers stunning country views and tons of historic character with modern amenities. At 4,400 square feet and 10' ceilings, there's also plenty of room. 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, including a beautiful Master Bedroom and attached Master Bath on second floor. Additional bed in an extra upstairs room in (the house can therefore sleep 12). The huge kitchen/family room combo is THE place to entertain. Cozy den for reading and office with computer for work. The POOL is NOW GONE. 20 scenic acres to roam about. If you love farms, there are 10 enormous greenhouses covering 1 acre of land and five acres of vegetables, flowers and herbs outside. This charming home would make a great place for weekend stays, family and business retreats, or weddings.
The cleaning deposit is $250. This is 100% refundable if house is respected, maintained and the house rental agreement followed. Parties and extra people staying in the house will nullify the deposit.
We live in an apartment completely segregated from the house and will be at the farm daily to tend to the needs of the vegetables, but we will not bother guests of the house. We will be available for assistance, however, if you have any questions or issues with your stay.

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.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are vegetable farmers. We sell our produce and at Farmers Markets in Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, through a 275- member CSA Program, online sales, and multiple wholesale buyers. There is 6 acres of vegetables and a two-acre fruit tree orchard.
