Tryon Farm is an extension of me and it's peaceful surroundings let me unwind and relax like I've never done before. I always say my house has a soul. I love hiking the dunes, hanging out at the beach, walking the trails at the farm, working my little garden, biking on my old cruiser, visiting the winery on the corner, relaxing on the patio, playing ping pong in the barn, walking the labrynth... Just to name a few!

Laurel purchased this house in 2008

Harbor County is an ideal location for vacationing due it's quaint towns, beaches and country roads. Tryon Farm offers everything I would want within a community. These 2 things combined, plus the proximity to Chicago, made this an ideal spot for me!

I've heard over and over that my home is modern, yet liveable. Any coolness the house has is overcome by warmth from another element. It has a whimsical fun element to it. It's full of interesting art yet every window is a frame to the outdoors, creating even more interesting pieces of art.

Wonderful family escape!

  • 5 of 5
The entire experience was lovely.
Laurel was helpful, informative and accessible with information and has outfitted her home beautifully to fit every need. Tryon farm is a hidden gem, we enjoyed flying kites in the meadow, walking trails, chasing monster trucks, a trip to the beach and just lounging around the beautiful terrace in the dune house. We look fwd to visiting again. Thank you!

Beautiful space and location

  • 5 of 5
This was a cozy, comfortable, well-appointed home for 2 parents and 2 young children to spend the weekend. The setting at Tryon Farm is amazing and provides lots of space for walking and exploring for children. The home itself is simple and beautiful. Internet connection is very good and allowed mom to get some work done while "on holiday" and the kids watched some netflix. The kitchen allows for cooking of real meals, and there is a good grocery store 5 minutes up the road. The owner is super responsive.

Perfect City Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was the most amazing trip. The house is absolutely gorgeous and in the perfect, serene location. We spent our days reading books by the fire and enjoying coffee on the screened in porch. Who knew such a gem existed only an hour from Chicago!? Laurel was so easy to work with and made it so easy. We are already planning our next fall trip back!

Beautiful house and owner Laurel is very easy to deal with and extremely responsive. We have family in the area and this was the perfect solution for our stay. Will rent from Laurel again, she is head and shoulders above the rest.

Wonderful Retreat in the Woods

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home and we really appreciated the host touches with nice shampoes and soaps. We will rent again. Laurel was delightful and responsive
Only one negative - the seating is very modern and beautiful but not so comfortable for us older folks.

Thanks again

Car: recommended

Tryon Farm is situated on a 170-acre former historic dairy farm. It's just behind Rt. 12 and about 1.5 miles from the beach. You can simply retreat or travel a small distance to be in the middle of harbor country! Shady Creek Winery is a few steps away as are great restaurants, bars and tourist destinations. I have a full guide available at the house or it can be emailed in advance if you're looking for more information before you arrive. I also love giving recommendations!
