Loved this place! We stayed in the Bluebird room. It was decorated perfectly for a B&B experience that was elegant and comfy, with a touch of modern but not too sleek that it still had the feel of a comfortable country getaway. Sleeping area and bathroom were very clean and roomy. Resembled a large master suite. Loved the fireplace and two person jetted tub. King size bed was very comfortable with soft linens. Special touches like chocolates by the bed, fresh baked cookies, and coupons to some nice choices for dinner were great. The breakfast food was wonderful, and the setting even better. A sun room with great views and speakers to hear the many birds that will visit during the meal. Great place to stay in NW Indiana and enjoy some nearby great restaurants in Valparaiso.
Nicely tucked on the edge of the woods this B&B is very clean and all the little details make you feel like royalty. The rooms are just the right size and the tub, calming music, and fireplace put an explanation point on the relaxation experience. Breakfast was INCREDIBLE in the sunroom and birds feeding during the meal was the icing on the cake. I've been to many B & B's and the others can't compete! Barbara is a pro and has truly found her calling. Mark
We stayed in the cardinal room on a w/th in February. Our goal was to relax. The room was wonderful. The area was quiet. The breakfast was incredible. The view during breakfast was really cool. Cardinals, blue Jay's, woodpeckers all flying around the feeders near the windows. It looked like a bird aquarium. We paid for a couple's massage. It was well worth it. The rooms upstairs were calming and comfortable. Therapists were very good. Used vouchers to eat at local restaurants for dinner. Bon femme was very good, staff was so nice. Sage was ok. Menu was limited, and they put mushrooms in just about everything. Overall our stay was exactly what we wanted.
We love to stay here for the location and the size of the rooms. However, it looked like it needed to be vacuumed this time around. I wish they would add a small refrigerator or a microwave. It would be even better.
Excellent retreat from the city, and still few minutes away from Valparaiso, Indiana and an hour from Chicago Downtown. It feels clearly out of the city, and relaxing, even though easy roads to drive back to town. Personalized care, outstanding gourmet style breakfast, no other dining that I am aware of, but plenty of nearby places to go. Rooms are definitely large and inviting to rest or a romantic getaway.
I have stayed at Songbird Prairie on many occasions for several years. Over all of those stays each one has been spectacular! From the quiet, peaceful grounds to the European towels, to the wonderful décor, to the amazing breakfasts ... Barb and Efrain Rivera are great hosts and provide such a spectacular, second to none, stay. Hats off, Barb and Ef! Terrific job!
Consider a stay.at Pikk's Inn for a warm and cozy and convenient retreat. This is a true space - really charming and masculine at the same time. Be sure to bring your travel hair dryer and check to make sure the wardrobe is repaired so your clothing does not fall down. Enjoy a gift certificate from the restaurant downstairs - or do what we did - use it to share a glass of wine in our beautiful place for the night !
The rooms (suites) are spacious, light, quiet and clean, with good linens in bed and bath. The location is excellent for an in town stay. Our one complaint was the lack of closet or storage space for clothing, coats, etc. Also, our bathroom was lacking in toiletry and wet towel stow space. Otherwise, a pretty great deal!
Celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversay and sentimentally loving cardinals (and most other songbirds) this was the perfect place to unwind, relax and be pampered. Barbara & Efrain are the consummate hosts. Warm, gracious, engaging without being intrusive. Highly recommend this as a bed and breakfast that has it all.
This was the bed and breakfast near the Indiana Dunes that had the best reviews on Trip Advisor. I was not lead astray. Peaceful, beautiful. There really are songbirds (and others). Breakfast was marvelous with fresh edible flowers. The coffee was spectacular. I did not even consider stopping at Starbucks. Breakfast was, however, nearly eclipsed by the performance of the birds out the window. My Chicago meeting was at 10:30 AM. It as no problem to drive in (1 and a half hours), and when I returned I could visit the Dunes.
I held my bridal shower at Songbird Prairie and everything exceeded my expectations. Barbara went above and beyond to make sure everything went as planned. The decor is beautiful, the food was delicious and the entire home was spotless.
Couldn't of asked for a better experience for our first bed and breakfast. Amazing hospitality along with rooms, amenities, and the best breakfast myself and my wife Amanda have ever had. If you get a chance to go don't pass it up and my wife Amanda said to make sure you get a massage.
By far our best B + B experience. We opted for a dinner at the Inn and it could not have been nicer. Delicious four course meal prepared and served by a private chef! Our room was clean, inviting and more spacious than it appeared on line. Breakfast looking out on the birds (what else?) was very generous and delicious. This Inn and it's gracious hosts are very highly recommended.
Barb & Efrain make you feel right at home. Great room and the house is fantastic.Bed was great and the robes were a nice touch. Just far enough off the beaten path to make you feel like you really got away. The breakfast was outstanding and beyond what we were expecting. Thought I was at a downtown five star restaurant. Highly recommend.
Songbird Prairie is a beautful and relaxing B & B! We needed rest and so enjoyed the lovely and comfortable setting, our room was excellent! Barbara's breakfast is both beautiful and delicious, very relaxing to enjoy while watching the birds. We will return to the Songbird Prairier B & B!
Wonderful relaxing place. Great attention to detail and wonderful people to deal with. Welcoming clean and very nicely decorated. This place takes alot of work to keep you and boy do they do a great job.. John and Michelle
Our stay at the Songbird Prairie B&B was perfect. Our room was beautiful as was the entire house and grounds. Loved viewing the birds from the sunroom at breakfast and also from our room, Cardinal Suite. Breakfasts both days were delicious as well as beautifully presented. And we thank Barbara for putting up with us - getting lost on the way there, failing to work the front door lock properly and inadvertently ringing the doorbell! Barbara and Efrain were both very, very nice.
This is truly one of my favorite places to get away! You won't be disappointed. Clean & beautiful location, amazing breakfasts, perfectly relaxing. Barbara & Efrain are friendly and attentive to every detail. This is worth every penny. We've stayed at least 7-10 times over the years & loved each visit!
My husband and I only had a night to get away, but Barbara and Efrain's beautiful bed and breakfast packed so much relaxation, comfort, and romance that we truly felt like we were on a full-fledged vacation. The bed and breakfast is beautiful and our suite was gorgeous, clean, and absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway. The surrounding area offers many activities from great dining options to fun outdoor adventures. Barbara's breakfast is to die for--elegant and delicious. Barbara and Efrain are stand-out hosts--available for everything you need and to offer friendly guidance in activities but never in the way. We hope to return and recommend this B&B very highly! Becca and Jason
My husband and I loved the home that was decorated so comfortably and the friendliness for the owners. The breakfast dining area was surrounded by bird feeders and woods. The food was amazing and we didn't need to eat until dinner those two days. We felt so relaxed and comfortable during our stay. Peter and Becki
I cannot emphasize enough how exceptional our stay was. All of the staff, and Aaron in particular, were sensitive to our needs and worked hard to courteously accommodate our every request. The food, room and experience all far exceeded our expectations. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.
