Our collective Chicagoan moment: a bitter cold one.
Makes a man yearn for greener pastures.
And here they are — literally: Tryon Farm, a sprawling country retreat on 170 acres of pristine Indiana farmland an hour’s drive from the city.
You won’t find anything quite like Tryon so close to home: a dairy farm-cum-conservation development where folks build smart, modern homes — some of them available for short-term rental.
As for where to put your feet up at night, here are three cozy options taking spring and summer reservations now:
This two-story farmhouse comes complete with a wood-burning fireplace and a gorgeous retractable glass wall that opens to a deck facing a peaceful meadow.
For something a little more compact, try this lovely cabin featuring a sleepy sun porch and modern, minimalist decor.
If you prefer the quaint, there’s always Tryon’s tried-and-true B&B. Perfect for couples looking to get a taste of country life without renting an entire house.
Who knows — maybe you’ll walk away with a piece of land to call your own.
