Peter and I grew up in the Rochester area. Peter is a real estate agent and I work with my husband in an assistant role at RE/MAX Results in Rochester. We are busy raising 4 teenagers, Grace, Greta, Gabby & Gunnar. We own rental properties in the area and were excited to renovate and transform this rental property back to it's original farmhouse charm. Being familiar with the area we look forward to hosting guests that are visiting Rochester, MN!
Christy purchased this House in 2010
What makes this House unique
We enjoy this home because of it's farmhouse feel and the history behind it. This is the original farmhouse and original location. It's fun to imagine what the area was like over 100 years ago! We were also attracted to it for it's close proximity to downtown Rochester and the Mayo Clinic (less than a mile).

Urban Country Charm
We enjoyed our stay in the Urban Farmhouse. Comfortable beds, tastefully decorated and clean. Owner is very responsive and took care to provide what we needed. We would stay here again.
The Urban Farmhouse was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting the Mayo Clinic. The house is very charming and comfortable, while having updated appliances. The washer and dryer were an awesome plus, since we were staying for many days. The location is great, not only for the Mayo Clinic, but it is conveniently located to everything we needed or wanted to see in Rochester. It is well-maintained and the owners are very attentive to any needs you may have during your stay. The hardest thing to find when away from home is a comfortable bed, and that was not the case here. The bed, linens, and pillows were incredibly comfortable! We would love to stay here again in the event we return to Rochester!
A wonderful place to stay
This is a well decorated, comfortable house. The owner has thoughtfully provided for the needs of guests. There were many extra touches like fresh flowers and jars of snacks. It is comfortable and homey in a nice neighborhood. We hope to stay again.
Great experience - family with 3 young kids . . .
Historic property mostly original but very well maintained - 5 min to downtown /mayo and two blocks from large park.
Charming, updated farmhouse
Thank you! This farmhouse was a great place to stay during our trip to Rochester, MN. The farmhouse is nicely updated and the rooms are bright and clean. The dining room table was huge and great to do some work on (as well as eat). The living room was cozy and comfortable. Highly recommended. Thanks again.
We recently stayed at the Urban Farmhouse and found it to be perfect for our visit to Rochester. It was the perfect location for getting back and forth to Mayo Clinic easily. It was a perfectly equipped kitchen and bathroom with everything you might need or want to stay for a few days or a longer visit (even treats and fresh flowers waiting for our arrival)! It was perfectly comfortable - beds, living room furniture, and awesome dining room table (where evenings were spent catching up on office work!). Thanks, Christy and Peter, for a wonderful stay, and how you have designed the Urban Farmhouse to make folks feel perfectly at home, away from home! We’ll be back in May!
