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.

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.

Why Fred chose Valparaiso
Vermillion Farm is located near our house, and we purchased it to preserve the amazing landscape that is all around.
What makes this house unique
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.
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!
