Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Tryon Farm - Modern Country Hideaway

One Bedroom One Bath

Perfect for one or two people to enjoy the country quiet while being close to all the activities of Harbor Country.

A great light filled fun and funky pied-a-terre with original contemporary art on a 170 acre farm which is now a nature preserve.

A free-standing, townhouse style condo.

The main floor is the living room and kitchen with a large island for dining. The toilet and shower are separate making it easier to wash the sand off from those beach trips. Walk out onto the balcony for an early morning breakfast.

Climb the ladder (or take the exterior stairway that wraps around the unit) to the top floor loft bedroom, featuring a queen size bed and terrific third-floor farm views. Walk out onto the sunny deck to read a book, sunbathe or enjoy the evening sunsets.

Steps away from the farm's picnic area and labyrinth.

If you want peace and quiet, like hiking, biking, and relaxing on a beach, visiting the shops in Harbor Country or just hanging out this is for you. Visit the Tryon Farm website to learn more about the farm and community.

Totally renovated, Modern Country Hideaway is the perfect get-away for one or two people for a weekend or extended stay. Only 60 miles from Chicago and 1.5 miles to the Lake Michigan beaches.

About scott franzen

Originally from the Midwest, and now living in New Hampshire, we've always enjoyed returning to the Michiana area for a stay by the lake. Here we're not on top of neighboring houses or noisy family reunions.

scott franzen purchased this condo in 2013

Why scott franzen chose Michigan City

This is our pied-a-terre- just the right size for a week-long quiet, private and restful retreat. Contemporary with quality materials, and our own private deck. Nothing like a walk in the woods on the farm.

What makes this condo unique

Tryon Farm is a one of a kind location- only 1-1/2 miles from the beach, yet seemingly miles away from the rowdy beach house rentals right on top of each other.

It was an amazing experience. My girlfriend and I felt right at home. Everything was available! The house felt comfortable and cozy. It was the perfect getaway for the both of us. Scott was great, whenever we emailed him, he would reply as quick as possible. The neighbors are friendly and the area is great! We really couldn't have asked for a better stay! It is for sure a place that we would come back to very soon!!! WE LOVED IT!

Great Place and Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a few days at this home for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised immediately upon our arrival to a local bottle of wine and a folder with EVERYTHING you will need for your stay. Most important to us since this was our first time visiting the area were Scott's recommendations. Each one was worthy and that made planning our day that much easier!!

The home is well kept and very nice and the location can't be beat in our opinion. We would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a nice worry free getaway!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to relax and this was it with the beautiful wooded setting, daily deer sightings and the sound of birds in the background. The pictures do not do justice to this wonderful gem! The property was well stocked with all the basic needs and more. Suggestions on where to go were wonderful. The decor was immaculate and well thought out. We hope to be back!

The elegant sound of quiet!

  • 5 of 5

The condo offers a cosmopolitan feel with the decor throughout. The kitchen has everything needed to prepare any meal. There is natural light with the many windows, but privacy is allowed due to their placement. Electronic entertainment is available, but we preferred to spend time outside. The upper deck allows the sense of being in your own private setting. Look out over the meadows, the treetops: watch the birds (binoculars provided by owners), observe the deer nearby (fawn asleep in the grass in the early morning), and while waiting for the stars, there is a small gas fire pit to prevent a chill and add to the ambiance of the evening. It's like being on top of the world! Listening to the sounds of nature seems unreal, considering how close the city is. If you choose to dine out, there are many places to choose from and only a few minutes away, literally.

The owners have provided everything to make the time away from home, perfect. A welcome packet of information provides many suggestions of things to do and places to go. A lovely bottle of wine from the winery just down the road and a gift of handmade soaps and shampoo to use during the stay were waiting for us.

They respond to any questions, promptly. I highly recommend staying in this Modern Country Getaway and cannot wait go back!

Car: necessary

located on 170 acre Tryon Farm where you can hike, bike, explore and relax.

Off the farm there's way too much to do here. The beaches, superb restaurants, New Buffalo, the outlet mall, Shady Creek winery- literally hundreds of feet away, great bars entertainment. Visit Three Oaks, MI, with boutique stores, brew pub and distillery and art cinema. Antique stores line the Red Arrow highway, not to mention eating at the Red Arrow Roadhouse. Great beaches include Washington Park, New Buffalo and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Ask for our secret recommendations.
