Whether you need overnight accommodations, a weekend stay or an extended stay, we can provide you with the accommodations that will make you feel at “Home” away from home.

About Wendy wolfe

Running the Farmhouse has been a very rewarding venture over the last 7 years and the house has a charming character all it's own. The 6 acres of trails and trees along with an old burr oak tree in the backyard, the circle of pink and blue hydrangas along with the other sun-loving sunflowers reaching to the sky provide a tranquil setting of our hobby farm at the Farmhouse! And the horses grazing in the pasture beyond the view of the backyard makes you feel like you are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of 'real' life! The Farmhouse is a way for me to enjoy my love of gardening, animals, and just being outdoors. In addition to running the Farmhouse I work full-time at the University of Notre Dame.

Wendy wolfe purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Wendy wolfe chose South Bend

I love the Farmhouse and it's historical heritage. I think all things old should be treated with love and respect and cherished. I love the Farmhouse and all that it represents of America and our heritage from days of old.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The atmosphere at the Farmhouse is refreshing and tranquil. It's charm and allure inside is just as wonderful outside on the deck looking out past the Big 100 plus old Burr Oak Tree and the fields that follow. Inside the house is decorated with antiques and country items from old. It's a great place for families or couples and provides a roomy yet cozy environment for reunions, romantic get-aways or just about any reason! It's not every day that one gets to stay in a well-maintained Farmhouse! I highly recommend it... who knows you may even enjoy the fresh sheets that we hang on the line for our guests when weather permits and perhaps you'll enjoy using the clothesline yourself... The horses, cats and pet lamb... just add to the fun and it's a great chance for kids to learn about farm animals in a fun and safe environment! I'm taken by the amazing things kids say and I truly think a stay at the Farmhouse is something you and your kids will remember for a lifetime...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Love the Farmhouse! Better than expected!

  • 5 out of 5
We all had a wonderful time at the Farmhouse! Everything was perfect! We loved the horses and the large yard was great for our family gathering and for the kids to run around in. Plenty of bedrooms and very comfortable. Highly recommend the Farmhouse! Thank you Wendy for a very nice stay in our hometown of South Bend, Indiana.

EXCEPTIONAL!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My daughter and I stayed at Wendy's property from May 21st -26th. I cannot say enough about how pleasant and perfect our experience was. We came in from out of town for a wedding that my daughter was both the Mistress of Ceremonies for as well as the wedding cake baker. A little stressful... =) So it was awesome to stay someplace so nice, clean, and with so much attention to detail. Wendy couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay or the property was. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Loved the Farmhouse!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family was in South Bend for the weekend for a wedding at Notre Dame and we loved staying at the Farmhouse! It beat hotel life hands down! Our group consisted of four adults and a baby and there was plenty of room for more! The house was very comfortable and homey-with decorative touches that brought back childhood memories. Wendy and Pat are close by and ready to help with any questions. We had some family and friends over to enjoy the fantastic yard and deck both days. We played yard games and watched the ponies. The big oak tree in back yard gave wonderful shade. One evening we had some food brought in from a local Thai/Chinese restaurant -- there were plenty of tables and chairs for hosting. The little ones enjoyed the variety of toys at the house and the adults enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Very clean and welcoming property. We highly recommend the Farmhouse! If we are ever staying in the area again, we will certainly return!

We went back for an ND reunion and took our small children. They loved the animals and the unique retro toys and books around the house. Wendy was fantastic and even babysat our kids for an evening. What a treat!!!

Loved the Farmhouse!

  • 5 out of 5
The Farmhouse worked out so well for our family to stay. Wendy is a delightful and friendly host. The house is stocked with all the comforts of home, and it was easy to prepare meals during our stay. The deck outside is lovely for sipping your morning coffee, and watching the horses in the paddock just across the way. The deck is also a great spot to grill up some dinner and relax with the family. I would highly recommend the Farmhouse for your stay. It has so many different sleeping options, that work easily with a large family or a group of friends. It is a short drive to the grocery store and easy to access all the sights of the South Bend area. I would highly recommend the Farmhouse for your stay in South Bend.

What a great place!!

  • 5 out of 5
This place is a hidden treasure for a family wanting a great experience of spending time together. The kids had so much fun, they could have stayed at the house the entire time we were in town. SO many toys and things to look at. Every time they opened a drawer or closet there was something new..... it was like a treasure hunt. The pictures are 100% accurate but they can't portray the feeling of the home. Wendy was great. She worked with us on short notice for the reservation and things couldn't have turned out better. For us it was the best thing about South Bend Indiana

We are just a short 25-30 minute drive on beautiful backroads with vege stands and all kinds of country fun to get to New Buffulo and Lake Michigan! About 40 minutes drive from St. Joe/Benton Harbor. We are in Indiana but just across the Michigan State line so we are a great spot for Michigan visitors too!
