Tryon Farm is situated on a 170-acre former historic dairy farm. It's just behind Rt. 12 and about 1.5 miles from the beach. You can simply retreat or travel a small distance to be in the middle of harbor country! Shady Creek Winery is a few steps away as are great restaurants, bars and tourist destinations. I have a full guide available at the house or it can be emailed in advance if you're looking for more information before you arrive. I also love giving recommendations!

About the owner: Tryon Farm is an extension of me and it's peaceful surroundings let me unwind and relax like I've never done before. I always say my house has a soul. I love hiking the dunes, hanging out at the beach, walking the trails at the farm, working my little garden, biking on my old cruiser, visiting the winery on the corner, relaxing on the patio, playing ping pong in the barn, walking the labrynth... Just to name a few!
Why the Owner Chose Michigan City: Harbor County is an ideal location for vacationing due it's quaint towns, beaches and country roads. Tryon Farm offers everything I would want within a community. These 2 things combined, plus the proximity to Chicago, made this an ideal spot for me!
The Unique Benefits at this House: I've heard over and over that my home is modern, yet liveable. Any coolness the house has is overcome by warmth from another element. It has a whimsical fun element to it. It's full of interesting art yet every window is a frame to the outdoors, creating even more interesting pieces of art.
