Pipestem Creek Garden Lodging and Nature Retreat, in the heart of North Dakota's birding country, provides a combination of superb birding opportunities with quaint lodging options. Everything about Pipestem Creek evokes rustic charm. Three historic granaries were moved to the farm and restored. Two are used for lodging and one houses our "Vintage Farm Treasures" and Collectibles Gift Shop.

No matter which site you choose, you will find a perfect beginning and ending to a day of birding. Mornings greet guests with a dawn chorus sung by the array of onsite birds, and evenings bring picturesque sunsets.

Hunters are welcome. We are in the heart of the prairie potholes region,the most important duck breeding area in the nation. Amenities for hunters include a private garage for cleaning game.

All lodging options include a map of birding drives in the local area. Guests also can do their own birding on the 700 acres of privately owned land and nearby refuges. The numerous large flowering gardens at Pipestem Creek provide habitat for birds and lovely places for an evening or morning stroll. Guests have access to FRESH VEGETABLES ready in the farm gardens. Pets are welcome.

The grounds can be rented for WEDDINGS which includes lodging for up to 22 people for 2 nights. Group garden tours are welcome. Catering can be arranged for special events.

One of the restored granaries now houses FUNKY and AUTHENTIC FARM JUNK and ANTIQUES for SALE.
