Farm Villa

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.

The property offers much to explore: hiking trails, dunes, fishing ponds, the immersive Tryon Farm Institute; twilight happy hours and outdoor movies once warmer temps arrive.

As for where to put your feet up at night, here are three cozy options taking spring and summer reservations now:

The Dune Farmhouse

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.

The Woods Retreat

For something a little more compact, try this lovely cabin featuring a sleepy sun porch and modern, minimalist decor.

The Guest House

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.
