Property description

Step back in time...

“The Farmhouse” is a 1900’s home with an old- fashioned front porch and swing. It has split rail fence all around the property and sits amongst a row of evergreens. It's just past the old red barn in the woods! Pull in take a deep breath—and enjoy the charm of this beautiful farmhouse—Your Country Home away from home! 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.

Need a place for family and friends to gather for a holiday feast or get-together? Coming to see the Irish play at Notre Dame?

“The Farmhouse” may be just the answer!

The Farmhouse is the perfect place to relax or be active... and a great place to call home when visiting the area to cheer on the Fighting Irish! We are located right next door to the Carriage House Fine Dining restaurant on a beautiful country acreage.

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!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
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...
