BroodioAudrey and Richard welcome you to The Broodio, a one-room cottage that is part of our Minnesota Valley century farmstead. The simple pleasures of the prairie surround Moonstone's gardens, arbors and vineyard.

The Broodio, a former "brooder" house and studio, is bathed in warm tones featuring original artwork, solar technology, traditional and handmade furniture, and fresh flowers in season. Go to bed under our vast blanket of prairie stars and awaken to songbirds, the occasional lowing of cattle and a continental breakfast delivered to your door. Help yourself to organic, fair trade coffee or other beverages at your leisure.

Green RoutesDepending on the season of your visit, you can take a morning walk by the budding flowerbeds, ripening fruits, frosty pastures by the pond or ski on our trails or those at nearby Lac qui Parle State Park.

Our canoe, grill, campfire, sauna and beach are available to guests. Perhaps you can add to our farm bird list which identifies species we have sighted here within the last 37 years.

Bathing facilities are close by in the main farmhouse. Use of the charming outdoor privy down the garden path is optional.
