Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Experience nature and design in an unforgettable way! This thoughtfully curated home is located within a unique green community surrounded by 200+ acres of woods, prairies and meadows - yet minutes to the beach, great restaurants, wineries and activities in harbor country.

Dunefarmhouse was featured in TimeOut magazine in 2019-2020, as a "Top 10 Airbnb rental in the Midwest" and part of "Perfect Midwest Getaways."

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 (wood burning with a gas starter), guest room, bathroom and laundry room. Upstairs you'll feel like you are in a treehouse 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 nearby are the best restaurants, towns and beaches in Harbor Country!

Fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances (dishwasher, range, full size Viking refrigerator). House has basic prepping, cooking and serving necessities like spices, pots/pans, mixing bowls, coffee makers, grinder, kettle, blender, etc. Enjoy our delicious free coffee! Kitchen has sleek Caesarstone quartz countertops, a wine fridge and plentiful counter space.

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

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. Firewood can be found off the winding road as you're entering/leaving "The Dunes” but we recommend you bring your own dry wood, or purchase locally.

2 full bathrooms, one on each floor. The downstairs bath features floor to ceiling glass tiles and 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.

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. 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!

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

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 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.

Where you’ll be

Michigan City, Indiana, United States

Tryon Farm is a unique green community with homes strategically placed among 180+ 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).

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.
