Island with name c.jpg

Peacebunny Cottage

 Please send me information
when you begin accepting guests again...


In order to keep the  private 22 acre
main island a natural and
sustainable peaceful oasis,
we do not intend to develop the main island nor create a tourist destination...



As we reopen, we will be testing a model to offer limited number of boat treks to
other islands downstream
we have named "Hope" and "Hoppiness."

Complete the form to stay in the loop...

Our advisory group is still working through details as we look to move forward
in a way to help keep the animals and people safe with COVID, so thanks for your interest and your patience. 


Complete the interest form and we will share

details when they are available.


Watch for ongoing contests on

social media too.

Instagram and Facebook


Winners of these contests plus up to 3 guests will be invited to go island hopping with us between the mainland & our partner islands.


All guests must be 14 or older at the time
of their island visit but we also love hosting events, so please contact us.

We're so excited that you found us & are interested in the rabbits!   



Our partner Educational & Wellness Foundation
brings the rabbits to community events, schools, libraries, egg hunts.



We're love hosting educational events 
Bunny Boot Camp
Little Vet class
Pasture Buddies 
: (Sunday nights  June-September).



Boater friends & neighbors:
Thank you for helping us keep the islands (including our sandbars) natural, pristine and undisturbed & safe from RHDV2
Please come ashore only with our personal escort. 


As Guardians of the comfort rabbits who travel with us to the Peacebunny Islands to spend warm lazy summer days together,
we're excited to share what we're learning. 
But the island sites just aren't designed for lots of guests.

We worked with a host of experts while developing a plan to help ensure that the island is sustainable and good for the environment while also keeping the rabbits and our youth safe.  The site simply cannot sustain the amount of guests who wish to visit the main island.
Thank you for your interest & hope we can have you visit soon...


We have several partner islands including Hope and Hoppiness, located just downstream, and we are currently testing a model for allowing guests to visit our rabbits there where it is more conducive for guests. 

Thanks for visiting our site and supporting this  youth-driven vision! 

The best way to stay in the loop on opportunities and events is to subscribe to this site and follow on social media.

Have a Hoppy Day!!

All guests going to Peacebunny Island mainland must be escorted and at least 14 years old+
 during their visit. Any youth guests who go must be accompanied by parent/guardian. 
All participants/parents must sign appropriate waivers.

CONTEST WINNERS: The prize is non-transferable and has no cash sale value.  The islands are  rustic, woodsy and river travel will be by canoe.  Winner may choose to go to Peacebunny Cottage for a private VIP tour with the Baby Bunny Nursery instead.   Because of the recent emergency of a rabbit virus, RHDV2 we follow strict biosecurity policies to keep the rabbits safe. Although we'd love to have people come inside, it just isn't safe right now.

Winners are responsible for any of their personal travel expenses getting to the agreed upon boat launch near St Paul, Minnesota USA.  Due to COVID19, each winning trip must be completed between when we reopen.

**We have other contests and opportunities just for youth under 14 years age, so keep watching

"In 1969, the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio caught on fire because of the trash thrown in the river. This year, we celebrate 50 years of a clean river, thanks to the Clean Water act.  This Act also affects the Mississippi river and it allows the rabbits to be safe and healthy on their island.

I have been wanting a bunny since I was very young. I’ve written countless essays, poems, and begged enough to drive my parents crazy. The little things in these furry creatures are the things that make them so lovable. The soft fur, the cute way they chew, the energy in their springy hop. These magical creatures have perfected the love potion. They have begun to make their home along the Mississippi river at Peacebunny Island.   

Of all of the animals I enjoy, rabbits are at the top of my list. They have always been my favorite. I particularly enjoy sleeping with my stuffed rabbit, Caesar, because he is fluffy and the perfect stuffed animal. That’s why I want to come. Spending time with the peace bunnies will help to reconnect with myself. To break from my crazy life and play with some bunnies. "
