Hi! We’re Mark and Cheryll Mellenthin, proprietors of StoneHaus Farm. We fell in love with this Driftless corner of NE Iowa in 1999 when we purchased a small, rustic cabin on an isolated trout stream a few stream valleys west. Then in the winter of 2009 we chanced upon this 165-year old farmstead. Icicles had formed in the one of the basement rooms and the house had no usable plumbing, heat or electricity. Still, the massive stone house, glorious hand-built bank barn and other outbuildings made up for what the farm lacked in basic infrastructure. StoneHaus Farm has been a labor of love us.
