Michigan City condo description

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 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.

                  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.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: 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.

                  Why the Owner 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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  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.
