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, walking the labrynth... Just to name a few!
Laurel purchased this House in 2008
Why Laurel chose Tryon Farm
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!
What makes this House unique
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.

Modern day House in the Woods!
Very serene and peaceful way to detach from the city. Laurel was quick to respond. Property is in excellant conditions and very cozy:)
STUNNING--We didn't want to leave!
Laurel's place is a stunning sanctuary in the woods. The attention to detail is impeccable, and her home is filled with beautiful, captivating art, cozy nooks to relax in, and plenty of space to cook a big meal or enjoy some yoga.
There's no TV, which we LOVED! Instead we caught up on our reading, had deep chats over wine, and sat in front of the fire relaxing. But if you're looking to catch up on Game of Thrones, this isn't the place.
Other perks: The massive master shower/bathroom. Super soft/luxe sheets. A fully stocked kitchen for cooking. Extra blankets for chilly nights. A wonderful library.
We will definitely stay here again! She made everything so easy and enjoyable for us, and her home is a 10 out of 10.
The property and grounds itself are also lovely. We deeply enjoyed walking the trails and exploring the different landscapes.
Awesome experience nestled in the forest!
What a great place! My Mom and I loved being in this beautifully designed and decorated home. Artwork was half the fun! I appreciated the thoughtful design and simplicity in everything. We loved spending the evening listening to old records, sipping wine and talking through the night! It is truly a home that calls you to reconnect...whether it's with family, friends or yourself. Highly recommend this lovely sanctuary.
Charming home in the woods
I fell in love with Tryon Farms and this little house in the woods. It had everything we needed for our weekend getaway. Great place to go and unplug for awhile.
The Modern Country Retreat was all we expected and more. Laurel is very helpful with any info that we needed or questions we had. A quiet and peaceful setting close to the beach and restaurants. Beds are comfy and all amenities were provided. Definitely recommend....perfect for 2 couples. Thanks Laurel for the hospitality!
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.
