  • An Amazing Spot for a Company Retreat

    "My company retreat was at Tyner Pond Farm, and we had a blast. It was an easy drive from Indianapolis, and the area was beautiful! Chandra and Kara were such a great help through the planning process as well. The house was beautiful, spacious, and had everything we needed. We walked around the farm to see chicks, piglets and a few farm cats. When we were still at the farmhouse we were brainstorming occasions to come back for. I think you will have some repeat customers with our crowd! Thank you Tyner Pond Farm!"

  • Just a perfect place!

    "How nice to walk into a home and have your breath taken back - this home is so perfect. We were only four and you could get lost. Father and son played pool in the basement - great to hear the laughter. Plenty of places to tuck away to read if you wanted to. Kitchen clean and had everything you could need and then some. Nice little note left, of local things to do during our time frame. Loved sitting on deck for coffee in am and wine in the evening. Clean and comfortable is the best I can say. Thank you for sharing."

  • Perfect Family Retreat!

    "Hi Jen, Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time! Your lake house was perfect! Beautiful, very comfortable and stocked with everything we could need. Great location too …. Our kiddos were able to go back and forth to their cousin’s house and to the beach with no problem. The week went by way too fast though, so I’m thinking that a two week stay is in order for next year! Thank you for everything! We really enjoyed our stay! :) Yolanda"

  • Beach Getaway

    "We just returned from a weekend staying at this lovely rental. This beach property is right on the beach and photos here do not do it justice. This rental is part of a cluster of rentals (studio, 1 bdm, 2 bdm, 3 bdm, and 4 bdm (which is up on a higher dune)). One of the nights we had a beach camp fire with other rentals of their properties, had great conversations with new friends, and made s'mores for the kids. Also, the sunsets were beautiful. First, the beach. You are right on the beach. You walk down a few steps to the beach - which is private. The beach area in front of house and the surrounding houses is private for the community. It wasn't that crowded and the sand is clean. Second, property amenities. The owners to have 2 kayaks you can use, as well as some chairs and umbrellas. I would bring my own beach chairs and umbrellas - which we did. If you have kids, they do have sand toys to use, but you share with their other rentals. Third, the rental. The rental we stayed in is very bright, clean and airy. There is A/C in case you are there when it is very warm and humid. It sleeps five. They had all the utensils needed to cook. Besides bringing your bathing suits and food for cooking (and paper towel), you are set for the beach life. We woke up in the morning and had coffee on our private sand dune overlooking lake michigan. Since we are early risers the beach was empty except for those getting their morning walks. Because we made some great friends with the other rentals we were able to see the other rentals. Be advised that the rentals are two houses that were divided into rental units. All have their own private entrances and private decks/sitting areas attached to their rental. But unless you want to be friendly you really wouldn't know there were other people on this property. The beach is big and private enough that you don't have to share space. The Dunes. Yes you park up on top of the dunes and do have approx 50 stairs to walk down. The reason for this is that the house is on the beach and there is no way to get to the house except to come down the dune. As much as I dreaded this trip back up, I packed so that I used many handled bags to carry food and such to make is easier to come down in one trip. You are able to walk down to the Indiana Dunes State Park (5 minute walk) and have access to their trails and dunes. We plan on booking a fall weekend at this place for a quick weekend getaway."

Indiana Travel Tips

Getting to Indiana Vacation Rentals

There are two main travel hubs to Indiana. If you are traveling to the central or southern regions of the state, you will fly to Indianapolis International Airport. The airport hosts all major North American carriers and has regular commercial flight connections. If you are traveling to the far southern parts of Indiana, the most convenient access point would be Louisville International Airport in Kentucky. The airport is located just across the Ohio River which forms the state border with Indiana. For travelers who will be spending their vacations on Lake Michigan and in the northern parts of Indiana, the best airport to travel to would be either Chicago O'Hare International Airport or Chicago Midway International Airport. Technically, this area falls into the greater Chicago Metropolitan area even though it is part of Indiana. From all these airports, there are good public transport links into the cities and surrounding areas. There is an extensive rail network which provides easy access to the major cities. If you prefer, you can also hire a car and drive to your vacation destination.

Attractions and Activities at Indiana Lake Homes

One of the most popular vacation destinations in Indiana is Lake Michigan. The state borders only a small portion of the lakeshore but it is where many of the vacation homes are concentrated. Because Indiana is on the southeastern shoreline, visitors can benefit from magnificent sunsets over the lake. Favorite pastimes include fishing and boating. Many of the lakeside communities are quite seasonal and become hives of activity during the summer months. There are often fishing tournaments and other fun-filled events that take place in season.

If you want to explore some of the lakeshore, you can hire a canoe or kayak and go for a leisurely paddle. There are several State Parks where you can enjoy nature trails, go for hikes and spend the early morning birdwatching. The Dunes State Park is a section of land along the Lake Michigan shoreline which is ideal for wildlife viewing. There are many other state parks in Indiana where you can go hiking or mountain biking. In the south central part of Indiana, you can visit the Bluespring Caverns in Bedford where you take a boat ride through the caves. Indiana has a rich cultural heritage and this is evidenced by the many museums dotted throughout the state. Several are dedicated specifically to the artistic heritage of Indiana.

Visitors to Indiana Cottages

Indiana is a great family vacation destination. Whether you are fishing along the shore of Lake Michigan or hiking a nature trail, there are many different outdoor activities that you can enjoy as a family. There are also several fun amusement parks that offer rides and entertainment for kids of all ages. For those who have an interest in art and culture, there are many art galleries and museums in the major towns and cities in Indiana. If you are an outdoor-type person and want to explore nature, there are many state parks where you can go mountain biking or hiking along the nature trails.

Seasons to Visit Indiana

Indiana has attractions that can be enjoyed throughout the year. For those who want to enjoy the lakes and parks, the best time of year to visit would be during the summer months. The temperatures are generally hot with the occasional thunderstorms. The peak travel season is during the months of July and August which coincide with the summer vacation season. Many families choose this time of year to have an extended family vacation.
