Born and raised in LaPorte, we felt a strong desire to 'share' all the beauty and natural amenities that LaPorte county has to offer. Having traveled abroad and experienced so many different types of communities, it is true that 'There's No Place Like Home'. We want everyone to experience the joy and beauty that LaPorte County has to offer
Kris & Laura purchased this house in 1995
The property is owned by 3 couples and is operated as a bed and breakfast/vacation home. Purchased in 1995, we lovingly renovated the home to restore it to its' original grandeur. Having a love of renovating and decorating, the home offered the challenge of restoration defining the period while incorporating the comforts of home. The comments often heard is 'Such a fine mix of old and new!'
Morning coffee on the 2nd floor porch, wine and conversation in front of the fireplace, quiet alone time in your own whirlpool/fireplace suite...whether it be time with family, with friends, or for a Retreat, Arbor Hill Inn is the perfect place to relax unwind and share a little laughter.
This wonderful place was where our family members from Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Florida and our new family in Indiana got together. My son's wedding was in LaPorte where my new daughter-in-law lives. We had no idea there was a place for us all to be until my other daughter-in-law in Georgia found Arbor Hill Inn and called me. We could have never had such an adventure if we had to rent hotel rooms. The great decorations and places to just be together were incredible. We had enough room to have dinner there after the rehearsal and the local friends that came were so happy to come in and see the Inn from the inside. We each loved our bedrooms. They have such charm and are each so different. The sitting rooms were great for those of us that just wanted to talk and for our guys to escape to watch the end of the Alabama-Florida football game. Plenty of bathrooms and the kitchen was just the right size for the cooking we did for the rehearsal dinner. There are fabulous photo op places on the grounds and I know I will be seeing family photos in Christmas cards with the Inn in the background. We had wonderful help from Kris and Laura. Check it out for a great family adventure.
Enjoy the fabulous beaches of Lake Michigan. Visit the campus of Notre Dame. Enjoy the 'Singing Sands' of the Dunes National Lakeshore. Do a day trip to Chicago - we have a commuter train 8 minutes away that takes you to downtown Chicago or the museums. Also be sure to visit the LaPorte County Historical Museum which houses the 2nd largest weapons collection that was originally from this house! Considered a AAA gem site (must see when in the area), the museum is great fun for all ages.
