The Nordic Horse is more like a farm stay! This is a working horse farm, many of the horses are located on this property. Have coffee on deck overlooking a pasture with the two miniature (little ones can sit on them) horses and the friendly llama that begs for apple slices . The house and barn is a little bit of Norway built in 1880 .

The space
Because the original part of the house was built of logs - the house is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The yard is surrounded by a garden using feng shui principles. Help yourself to the organic vegetables in the large garden - in season. The house has Nordic crosses on all four sides - a vintage Scandinavian tradition. It is a Viking tradition in order to make the house safe.

It is located on a I-90 frontage road 215th and the Hayward exit. It is the farm with the gate and Nordic horse cutouts on the fence.

Some of the local fun things to do:
1) Blazing Star bike trail that starts 3 miles from the house in Hayward, Minnesota
2) Austin and the Spam Museum is located 10 miles to the East.
3) Albert Lea six miles to the west is a city of original buildings. It has a lake in the center with a walking path around the lake. It is a the original Blue Zone City and organized by the Blue Zones author Dan Buettner. Marion Ross (Happy Days actress) childhood home was in Albert Lea. The Marion Ross Theater has live entertainment with her support. Take a 2 hour cruise on the Pelican Breeze.
4) Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota is located about 50 miles to the NE and all but 3 miles is Interstate driving.
5) Helmer Myer State Park is near Albert Lea.
6) Other areas of interest within 30 miles is Diamond Jo Casino, Harmony Park, and Kiester (made famous by a television ad)

I am a retired teacher. I love foreign travel. I traveled to Norway to my Norwegian ancestor's birthplace. My husband and I (I am now a widow) traveled the world . I love painting, gardening, pets, horses, farming, and carpentry. We (my son and grandson included) breed quarter horses. My hobbies and experiences are numerous. I especially like to talk to the Airbnb guests. I have been working on the Airbnb house and barn - that was built by Norwegian homesteaders in 1880 - for several years. I turned it into a Scandinavian experience. Now I want to share it with you. The animals on the farm are numerous, cats, ponies, mares and foals, and even Dimidy the llama. This year Wilbur - the pet pig - will delight children. Wilbur had to go back to the home farm for the season because “he” is expecting. Now we added Tillie. -the fjord - She is a registered Nordic Horse .
