Fully-Furnished Lovely Home In Farm Country!
About Ann Hoffert
I moved with my husband and my 4 daughters to this property in 1986. It is the home and farm on which I grew up. While my husband managed the farm, I worked as a Nurse Practitioner until I started my own business on the farm. My business was called Pipestem Creek. Along with several employees, we manufactured hand-made edible birdfeeders which we sold on the wholesale gift market. Our marketing success culminated in a TV segment with Martha Stewart. I am now retired with the exception of hosting weddings and reunions and other guests on the farm. We spend our winters on the South Texas coast. My passions are my family, birding, swimming, and nature in general, among other things.
Ann Hoffert purchased this House in 1945
Why Ann Hoffert chose Carrington
The home is in a very peaceful setting on our farm. We are very rural. In the summer, birdsong is abundant. There are hundreds of feet of walking trails through different habitat. The gardens are open to all guests and are beautiful all summer and fall.

Host was very hospitable, loaned us a golf cart to tour the grounds. There are a lot of flowers, even a bouquet on the table when we came in. Our only problem was finding the location when we used GPS. It was a very quiet place in which to stay.
We found the lodging clean, warm, comfortable, and friendly. Ann had it well set up for the lodging and also cleaning our game. The extra shower in the home was very helpful though an extra toilet and vanity to go with that shower would be great. This was a nice upgrade for us from staying in a motel where space was always cramped. We would recommend Ann's place to others.
Delightful cottage in North Dakota
This is my second visit to Pipestem Creek and it was just as enjoyable the second time as it was the first. The gardens are beautiful and our hostess was delightful. Ann shared fresh fruits and veggies from her garden and anytime I needed something for the kitchen she was more than accommodating.
I definitely recommend this hideaway in North Dakota, and we are already making plans to visit again!!
Beautiful and Peaceful Country Stay
Perfect location for visiting relatives in Carrington, ND. We stayed in the Bobolink for five nights and it was perfect. Clean and spacious home. Kitchen had everything you need for full meal preparation. Nice private yard with a huge deck, grill and two picnic tables. We enjoyed our nightly walks after dinner around the property by the pond and through the wooded areas. Very peaceful place. Highly recommend Ann's hidden gem.
Wedding and Family.............
Hello.....My family and i stayed here....It was beautiful! We also had our wedding on the grounds! It was everything i could have asked for! There was 22 of us and between the two house lots of room and everyone was really comfortable. My sister and her boyfriend stayed in one of the cabins "the gift shop" and they loved it! It was so nice to have everything available to us to use and if we had any question or anything the owner were on site to help with whatever we needed! Would recommend for something as little as a vacation or bigger family reunion or wedding! We look forward to going back and enjoying some R & R!!
This home is located on a working family farm. Extensive gardens are included in the 40 acres of walking trails in various habitats. Arrowwood National Wildlife Refuge is just 5 miles away. Excellent birding and hunting abound in the area.
