Modern Hideaway for Two Yet Close to the Lake!

Bedrooms 1
Space 46 m²
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

One Bedroom One Bath

Perfect for one or two people to enjoy the country quiet while being close to the beach and 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. Enjoy a complimentary bottle of local wine and boutique toiletries


Climb the ladder (or take the private exterior stairway that wraps around the unit) to the top floor loft bedroom (& deck), 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. No noisy party rentals or screaming kids here!

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 the wineries and breweries, or just hanging out, this is for you. Visit the Tryon Farm, IN, website 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.

About scott franzen

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. Here, we're not on top of neighboring houses or noisy family reunions.

scott franzen purchased this condo in 2013

Why scott franzen chose Tryon Farm

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.

What makes this condo unique

Tryon Farm is a one of a kind location- only 1/2 mile from the beach and a mile from parking, yet seemingly miles away from the rowdy noisy beach house rentals right on top of each other.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Modern Hideaway for our honeymoon. It was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed the modern appliances and decor. True to the description, it was a getaway. We saw some neighbors here and there but mostly it was calm and private - nicely tucked away. The 3rd floor deck off of the bedroom was fun to use. The owner has a radio with speakers out there, a decorative string of lights on the canopy, and a fire ring.

The directions and instructions left by the owner were on target and a great help. You need to read them. We read them, but not carefully enough the first time, so it wasn't until our second read through (3 days later) that we realized we could adjust the thermostat.

The kitchen has the basics except for measuring cups. The espresso machine was a bonus!

Yes, there is the ladder, but I thought it was fun. It did make my husband a little nervous. But all was well. No one accidentally fell down or anything like that.

Our only disappointment is that the sheets had a touch of a musty smell. My guess is that this is not the usual. (We just used our own sheets.) Everything else was wonderful. The beach was close. I would recommend it.

Thanks Scott for providing a nice getaway and all your help!

Very clean, bright and peaceful

Very much enjoyed the outdoor terrace off the bedroom overlooking the nature and endless amounts of sun. Perfect weather for a relaxing weekend.

Breathe Taking

  • 5 of 5

This modern hideaway for two was phenomenal! To hear the rooster crow brought back fond memories of my childhood when I would visit my grandparents as a child. The ease at getting from one place to another was nice as well. To be able to see the stars in the night's sky was beautiful. The only regret is not staying more than the 3 nights. Kudos to Scott for making my modern hideaway just what we needed.

The rooms were very clean and neat. Inside and out was tidy. Easy checkin and check out.

  • 4 of 5

This is a secluded property within a couple miles of Long Beach. The bathroom was very small but doable. It was nice to have the owners recommendations for food and beach access written on a note waiting for us. Overall is was a great and memorable trip. I would not, however recommend this for persons who have trouble going up and down stairs as the entry is about 10 stairs up. But for those that have no problems with stairs...the bedroom is nicely perched in a loft with an outdoor patio including fire pit and outdoor speakers for music.

Modern Serene Hideaway Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We decided on this place for an anniversary trip and we were more than impressed with this Modern Country Hideaway. It was simple and beautiful with every convenience you could think of needing. Scott, the owner, was a consummate professional, he provided all the information you could need in an email he sent as well as even more information in a folder awaiting your arrival. We took his recommendations for both dinners there and the food was fantastic. We've stayed at a number of places through HomeAway and we were very impressed by the ownership, though the place is for sale so unfortunately that might change. Tryon Farm itself was a incredibly neat, the acreage was wonderful and the other condos looked novel as well. Though it felt like you were in the middle of nowhere it never took more than 20 minutes to get to anywhere, the beach, Michigan City itself, as well as great restaurants nearby. We had a fantastic time, it was exactly what we were looking for and we are already considering another trip out to Tryon Farm.

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.
