The Land

We are located in the beautiful Tryon Farm community. You will have access to 175 acres of trails, woods, prairies, ponds to immerse yourself in nature. Walking the trails and experiencing the land will transform your mood, restore your inner peace and leave you relaxed and calm.  

Every season has something special to offer your soul.  The green growth in spring,

summer bounties from the wildflowers to the berries with the magical  lightening bugs. In the Fall 

the leaves and prairie grasses are at their peak with the sounds of migrating birds, to the wonderful winter in the snow belt with snowy hikes and the contrast with the barren trees.   

Nature and wildlife flourish at Tryon Farm where you will see deer, wild turkeys, groundhogs, squirrels, coyotes and if you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of the beautiful red fox. 

Tryon Farms is a modern living community in Michigan City, IN an hour drive from Chicago. Tryon Farm is a sprawling historic landscape that has been transformed into a modern country escape for folks who want to live in wide-open spaces, while staying connected to Chicago, Lake Michigan and the beach.
