About Ann Hoffert

My father purchased this property in 1945 when he started farming. My father was a self-made successful businessman. He was prominent in North Dakota politics. I was raised on the farm along with one brother. After graduating as a nurse from UND, I went to San Francisco for a couple of years and then to Vermont. I later returned to ND to enroll in the Nurse Practitioner program at UND. While in ND, I met my future husband. In 1986, my husband and myself and our 4 daughters moved to the farm and into the home in which I grew up. My parents lived partially in Texas and partially in our home town of Carrington, 10 miles from the farm. I continued to work in my profession until I started Pipestem Creek, a wholesale manufacture of hand-made edible birdfeeders. We had great marketing success, leading to my filming a segment with Martha Stewart. Since Pipestem Creek stopped manufacturing the edible birdfeeders, we have developed Pipestem Creek Bed and Birding. The gardens on the farm are a focus, providing a beautiful and serene setting for guests.

Why Ann Hoffert chose Carrington

We put in a huge effort to keep the gardens and grounds beautiful. Also, walking trials through apx 40 acres of farmstead provide a venue for birding, exercise, or just the quiet enjoyment of unspoiled nature.

What makes this house unique

Peace, quiet, and beauty.

We are in a very rural area. Arrowwood National Wildlife Refuge is just about 5 miles away.

Big, beautiful wide open property!

  • 5 of 5

The owner and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Super fast refund on the deposit was much appreciated.

I really liked how the house was decorated, lots of old antiques gave it a very cozy warm atmosphere.

There wasn't anything I didn't like and I would highly recommend this property.
