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.

Christmas Vacation Dec 27 - Jan 2nd
We stayed here over the Christmas Vacation, and we loved it. The house was comfortable, and the property was beautiful. The pipes were a little noisy but besides that everything else was great. The kitchen was very well stocked with appliances and dishes. There were two bedrooms, but there was a third room that had a bench with a cushion that could be used as a single bed. The living room had two other benches with cushions that could also be used as single beds. There was also a basement with a couch that could be to sleep on if needed. There was also a roll away single bed in the closet by the bathroom. We would stay here again.
Beautiful location. Unique, comfortable house with fabulous grounds.
This was the perfect spot for our family's visit to NW Indiana for Thanksgiving. The house was well-equipped for a small dinner party, and after-dinner games and movies. The beds were super comfortable, and the view from all the bedrooms - and the rest of the house - is spectacular. Fred and Leslie were very responsive, flexible, and helpful.
We will be back!
(PS: there is no cable/satellite TV. Normally that's not an issue for us, but at Thanksgiving, parades and football are a must. We brought a TV and a set of "rabbit ears" and were delighted to find we could not only get the usual/necessary channels, but we also watched several foreign movies on a channel I had never heard of!)
Great place, beautiful grounds
What a perfect getaway. The home has everything you might need to enjoy your time indoors and outside on the property! We loved the bikes, the fire pit and grill, playing croquet, and exploring the stunning wildflower meadows. The home is a quick 25 minute drive to IN Dunes State Park, where the dunes, beach and lake are beautiful and fun to explore. It's close proximity to town- a bit over a mile, where you can find shops and eateries. Thank you!
Peaceful, well equipped farm house, convenient to Valpo
We enjoyed our stay at the farm house. Leslie met us when we arrived and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The rooms were very clean. We were in town for our son's college graduation and the house was very convenient, yet private. It was raining most of the day on Saturday so we did not have the opportunity to explore the beautiful grounds. I would definitely recommend staying here.
This was a beautiful property with an older well maintained home. Farm style atmosphere with no neighbors in site. located right on the edge of town with less then 5 a minute drive to everything. The house was well equipped and has a nice garage. I plan on staying here again soon.
