CLOSE TO EVERYTHING BUT A WORLD AWAY

Valparaiso House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

The Vermillion Farm is a 60 acre escape from the world. We purchased the property in 2008 and fully renovated the vintage farmhouse. We kept all of the great vintage details, but updated it with all of the luxuries that you'd want. We have a great dining area surrounded by windows looking into the woods and across the valley.

The living area has plenty of space to relax and you can enjoy the vintage console radio. The three bedrooms have great furnishings as well, and you'll love the views from every window. The views are rolling, beautiful and seem to go on forever without another house in sight. The lower level features a great TV area with a large flat screen HDTV. We have also added a second all tile bathroom with top of the line fixtures and glass walls.

Outside, there are groomed grass trails that lead you through the woods and native wildflower prairie. Without a doubt, it's peaceful here. We've seen an abundance of wildlife and have planted a native prairie.

Drive into town in the evening for a dinner in one of the many great restaurants in Valparaiso. On Saturdays you may want to wander up to Chesterton for their outdoor Market.

Come out for a few days or a few weeks. We're sure you'll love it.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Vermillion Farm was a wonderful winter hide-a-way for our family. The

home was very clean and quaint. The bathrooms got an A+ from our

daughters! The windows afforded wonderful views of deer and the

wooded terrain. Just steps out the door and we had several great

sledding hills to ourselves! We loved the kitchen/dining area where

we spent lots of time preparing many delicious meals. Thank you for

opening your home to us and our 3 family dogs who equally enjoyed the

winter time adventure at Vermillion Farm! It was just want we

needed to re-energize ourselves for the start of the New Year!

My wife and I are both designers. I am an architect specializing in high-end residential projects and my wife is a fashion designer and singer/songwriter who spent years in New York City before settling into country life. We love to travel and are influenced by beauty both local and global. We loved creating this beautiful place and often stay here ourselves. Our objective was to make the place spare, peaceful, warm and inviting. It's great now, and we are continually adding amenities for future visits. If you like good design and the beauty of the outdoors, we think you'll love our place.

Fred purchased this house in 2008

Vermillion Farm is located near our house, and we purchased it to preserve the amazing landscape that is all around.

We have outfitted the house with all of the modern luxuries plus a great fun mix of vintage pieces. You'll feel a world away from it all. Hike on 60 acres of trails and native wood and prairie, soak in the tub, or tune in the vintage tube radio and kick back and relax. If you need to get out, we're just a short drive into Downtown Valparaiso with great restaurants, or a quick jaunt up to the dunes.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed staying at the farmhouse. It has plenty of room both inside and outside for a pleasant family vacation. We enjoyed running and walking the property's trails. It is also a 5 minute drive to downtown Valparaiso. We plan to stay at the farmhouse again in the future.

This house and property are incredible. The many trails throughout this beautiful farm provide a chance to relax and truly enjoy nature. It is located close to town and is very convenient. The property is well maintained and the owners have stocked it with everything needed to ensure an enjoyable stay. I would definitely recommend this property and will be renting it again in the future.

This place was perfection! It was truly SO close to shopping, great food and culture yet was so secluded you felt like you had the area around all yours for miles around. We are looking forward to going back in he fall if we can get an available couple nights. GO! Great get away!

WONDERFUL PROPERTY THAT COMBINES THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Vermillion for two nights recently and we loved it! We were looking for a last minute and easy trip from Chicago that would provide us with a change in scenery from our urban home and this property combines the best of both worlds. The 60 acre property gives you privacy and surrounds you with nature but yet the house has internet (which works well) and downtown Valpo is literally 5 minutes away so it's easy to go out to dinner and do other activities.
Despite the fact that the weather wasn't great when we were there (snow in April!), we had a good time because the property and house were comfortable and inviting. The house was better than the photos --it was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. We really liked the spacious layout and the wood feel throughout which made it cozy and comfortable.
Fred and Leslie were great hosts and they rightfully take pride in their property and making sure their guests are taken care of. My teenage daughter and dog didn't want to come back! We would highly recommend the property and look forward to going there again when the weather is warmer.

A FANTASTIC PLACE TO SPEND TIME WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY!!!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our time here! We rented the property so that we could visit family in the area for Thanksgiving. It was a comfortable stay for us and for my 83 yr old grandmother. The downstairs shower was perfect for her since it was a walk-in! We ended up having the whole family over at the farmhouse for Thanksgiving Dinner and it was fabulous! We highly recommend this property!

YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE STAYING HERE!

This is the ideal place to stay in the area. You are in the country, surrounded by nature but only five minutes from downtown Valpo. We loved the 60 acres of trails that meander throughout the property. And these are not some narrow trails that are hard to navigate. The trails are mostly groomed grass that weaves and winds through woods and prairie. We stayed 10 days and wished we could have stayed another ten. We had nightly visits by deer in the front yard. In the mornings we heard flocks of geese and ducks making their journey south. Fred and Leslie have bikes handy if you want to ride. Want to sit out by a fire? They have a small pit on the patio and a pile of wood handy. But if you want a big fire, try out the big fire pit a ways up the path. We enjoyed both.

The house itself is very homey. The rich original wood of the walls and cabinets in the kitchen and the wood floors throughout the house give it a rustic, but warm feel. A nice surprise was the vintage Zenith tube radio cabinet. The full sound was a nice reminder of how rich analog music can sound. We hosted four dinners during our stay and everyone was fascinated by that old Zenith. Entertaining was a breeze, too. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook and serve a multi course meal. They advertise this place as a two bedroom, but it can easily sleep eight. Morning coffee on the spacious front porch was a great way to start each day.

How about the owners? You can’t ask for a better couple to rent from. Leslie and Fred have put a lot of thought into how to provide a great experience. After you check in you never see them unless you need something. They give you your privacy but they are only a phone call away if you need something.

Our advice – make the reservation. You’re going to love staying here!
