About Wendy wolfe

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.

Wendy wolfe purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Wendy wolfe chose Indiana

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.

What makes this farmhouse unique

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...

Perfect Christmas!!!

  • 5 of 5

My children came in from Seattle and Atlanta with their dogs, so I rented The Farmhouse for them and me to stay together. It was a perfect Christmas. We had very late nights playing games and laughing, wonderful breakfasts in the Farmhouse kitchen. Wendy decorated the house just beautifully for Christmas, with a tree and everything. We had a wonderful Christmas morning with everyone together. It was just what I hoped for. Thank you Wendy!!

The Farmhouse was a good deal for the money.

  • 2 of 5

Our stay was fine. There was adequate space. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner with our college student. FYI: no garbage disposal, very limited cable tv access for football. But, we had fun playing games as a family.

Owner's Response: I am sorry we were not 5 stars for you as we strive to be a special kind of old fashioned stay for our guests. We provide WiFi and basic cable since most guests come for events and TV seems to be a non issue for the high cost to us in being very affordable for families. Thank you for your business and I am glad you enjoyed your family time.

Fun at The Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The stay at The Farmhouse was better than expected. It was beautifully decorated and cozy. The pictures don't do it justice. We loved seeing the horses and barn cats. It was close to all we wanted to see. We were sorry that we didn't get to meet Wendy.

Charming and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed being able to escape from the hectic commencement weekend activities at ND in the evenings. And we absolutely loved the serenity of the farmhouse's extensive yard, friendly cats, and adorable miniature horses! Lots of space inside to spread out, and the single bathroom was no problem with only four of us.

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!
