Escape to nature! We are taking extra measures to provide a clean and safe home away from home. This also means reservations are limited at this time.

Stay at the Dunefarmhouse at Tryon Farm and experience nature and design in an unforgettable way. Located within a unique green community just minutes from Lake Michigan and fabulous local attractions. In 2017 and 2019, my house was rated "Top 10 Airbnb rentals in the Midwest" by TimeOut magazine.

The space
Modern, 2-story, 2-bedroom/bath home nestled in a wooded area, overlooking a small sunlit meadow. Home has been featured in numerous magazines, newspapers and design and travel websites for it's beautiful design and unique setting.

Downstairs is a full kitchen, living area w/fireplace, guest room, bathroom and laundry room. Upstairs you'll feel like you are in a tree house with a studio/library that fully opens up to a screened in porch, then an open deck.

Great for those who appreciate nature, design and architecture and also ideal for those who just want to get away and relax - although just near by are the best restaurants, towns and beaches in Harbor Country!

KITCHEN:
Fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances (dishwasher, range, full size Viking refrigerator, blender, toaster, kettle, 2 coffee makers). Sleek Caesarstone quartz counter tops and plentiful cabinet space.

DINING AREA:
Located within kitchen and next to living area. Dining table seats six.

LIVING ROOM:
A modern yet comfortable and inviting place to relax, with a wall of windows facing a wooded area. Serene neutral palette with pops of color. Built in “barnyard” bench and wood burning fireplace encased in raw steel. Free stacks of firewood can be found off the curvy road as you're entering/leaving "The Dunes."

BATHROOMS:
2 full bathrooms, one on each floor. The downstairs bath features floor to ceiling glass tiles and a floating vanity. Upstairs is a spacious and sleek spa bathroom with a walk around shower and 4 water outlets. Hair dryer, soap and shampoo are available.

BEDROOM/SLEEPING OPTIONS:
There are 2 bedrooms, one on each floor, and each has a queen-sized comfortable bed. The décor is simple and comfortable, with playful decorations. Each bedroom has a full closet so you can unpack and settle in.

Upstairs in the studio is a red daybed that reveals 2 twin-beds. This is a favorite spot for many guests to sleep! The floor to ceiling sliding door can be fully opened to the screened porch so you feel like you’re sleeping outside in the comfort of a home!

LAUNDRY:
Large walk-in laundry room with a washer and dryer. Feel free to borrow a beach bag! Please bring your own beach towels.

FAMILY FRIENDLY:
We are very family-friendly! Inside you will find lots of games and outside is nature’s playground. The “farm” is a fun place for kids to explore. Although the space is intended to sleep 4 adults, the house is spacious enough to comfortably sleep larger families upon exception with the 2 additional twin beds.

PARKING. There are 2 parking spots out front, please do not block my neighbors drive. Guests that have 3 cars will require special instructions.

Guest access
You'll have access to the labyrinth, garden, meadows, prairies, ponds and 5-miles of marked trails at Tryon Farm! The house is fully equipped for cooking and entertaining.

Reconnect with nature or head out to enjoy the beach, wineries, and great restaurants all which are minutes away!

Michigan City, Indiana, United States

Tryon Farm is incredibly unique and special. Green homes are strategically placed among 170 acres, with over 120 acres of preserved, open land. Also on the farm is a restored barn, guest house, community garden, labyrinth and natural swimming pond (sorry, it's not available to renters). Most of the land is managed by Tryon Farm Institute, a land preservation non-profit that connects humans with nature.

You are close to everything - the beach, red arrow highway, wineries, restaurants and great MI towns like New Buffalo, Lakeside, and Three Oaks. I'm happy to make local recommendations and I also keep a binder at the house for additional info.

It's an easy, 1 hr. 15 min drive from Chicago. While a car is recommended, you can also get here from Chicago on the South Shore train. We are 1.5 miles from the Carrol Street Station.
