Stayed only one night. The breakfast was so good and the innkeeper was very informative, helpful and knowledgeable about the history of the house and surrounding area. We walked a long trail behind the house that was just lovely.

Claudia, is such an experienced inn keeper and it shows. She lets her guest set the tone for their stay. If you want to be left alone or if you want to socialize, she gets it! Accommodations are beautiful, inviting and extremely clean. Food was wonderful. We are repeat guest and will continue to be...

Staying at Claudia's farm was truly a treat; Claudia herself is very warm and welcoming. We had fresh eggs for breakfast--straight from her chicken coop--along with fresh fruits, baked goods (that she had baked herself), and tasty coffee. It was so soothing to wake up in the morning and join Claudia in the kitchen, with the windows open and a fresh breeze, visit the chickens with a mug of coffee in hand while she makes breakfast. Claudia gave us excellent dining suggestions, and we had a really nice time in Michigan City's art district. We also did the 5K trail, and it was truly magical. So many nooks to explore and spot local wildlife, including blue herons and kingfishers at one of the ponds, and lots and lots of butterflies along the grassy areas, including the threatened monarchs. The dragonfly pond was also quite special, and overall if you are a bird watcher and nature enthusiast you'll love exploring the grounds. Do wear bug spray, especially in the forest areas, and bring a pair of binos. If you stop here, be sure to also visit Panini Panini for lunch--their sandwiches are amazing!

I recently booked a "mommy escape" to Tryon Guest House for a few days. Claudia is really special and made the experience incredible. I had such an amazing experience I ended up staying an extra day. It feels like home in the best possible way, I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you so, so much Claudia, and I will absolutely be back (ok, maybe I'll let the family come too!)! Book it, you won't regret it!
Thank you. This kind review offers a reminder that Mother's Day is every day. Then there is Father's Day. There should be a Family Day - can't wait to meet yours.

Claudia, our host, was very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed the antiques and the comfortable atmosphere of our room. We also enjoyed a quiet walk around the grounds on the walking trail. My husband and I were only there overnight but do plan a return visit when more time can be spent.

My husband and I made a quick trip to Michigan City and stayed at Tryon Farm Guest House. The rooms were very clean, quiet, and had everything we needed. Claudia is an excellent host and cook. Our breakfast was amazing! We would definitely stay here again.

I love the fact that my dog was welcome in the home and allowed to wander the house with us. The breakfasts were absolutely amazing and so healthy. The bed was unbelievably comfortable and the temperature in the room was easy to adjust to our needs. The only complaint I have is that we had numerous crazy looking bugs in our room (Stink bugs I think they're called) that were pretty large in size and fly around and got in my hair a couple times. Otherwise, we both loved our stay and would definitely recommend the Tryon Farm Guest House!!!
Thank you for your kind review. I'm happy that you and your pet felt welcome, and that you enjoyed your breakfast. I apologize about the couple of stink bugs you found in your room. These 'buggers' are agricultural nuisances who hide behind bricks and window frames in the cold seeking warm places to stay. They don't bite, they do fly, and they are somewhat bigger than the asian beetles that we used to see. I tell all guests how to manage them if they see them, and we have a sign posted explaining more about them. Since we are a large nature preserve we find we can't control all of natures treasures or challenges. When warm weather arrives again, I will have the external house treated as I did in the fall. That should take care of the stink bugs during the summer months, when they are out living on the land. We like that our guests get an opportunity to connect with nature during their vist, and appreciate that it sometimes requires adjustments and understanding.

My wife and I came here for one night of our 1st anniversary weekend. It was awesome. Claudia was so nice and welcoming and her breakfast was truly amazing!: eggs in ham cups, wild rice, fresh pumpkin bread and baked pear. We took a walk to a winery down the road, and it was a great spot to hang. The hiking trails on the inn's property were also a blast. A clearly marked trail through beautiful sun drenched meadows. Also very close to Warren Dunes for great beach hiking and Stop50 for great brick oven pizza. Highly recommend this place!

Great place, service and food!
Whether using your laptop at the antique desk or writing in your vacation journal, the Oak Room is a great room for reading, reflection, and relaxation. The bright decor, private bath, and cozy rocker offer you a unique and quiet home away from home.
With an old-fashioned farm feel, this room offers the best view of the farmstead. A queen bed, private half-bath directly across the hall, and use of the full bath on the first floor makes this delightful space a bargain.
