I have been running the Farmhouse in South Bend since 2009. I work full-time at a local college and enjoy hosting people at the Farmhouse where they can relax and unwind with a little bit of yesterday.
I really treasure family times and antiques. I guess in a modern world you could say I’m a little bit country and a little bit old-fashioned, but I think that is just fine because through the Farmhouse I have found a way to share that love with others. Staying at the Farmhouse is not just an overnight stay, it is an experience that you will treasure for many years to come. Afterall, it’s not everyday one can sip coffee on their own private deck that overlooks a 100 year old Burr Oak Tree and enjoy horses in their own backyard!
The decor inside and out is a reflection of yesterday and the things that we all hold so dear to our hearts… our history, our family, our heritage. I myself don’t do much traveling that is not work-related and those trips usually consist of theatre, art institutes, etc with about 56 Undergraduate Students. With a barn full of horses and one black sheep, it’s hard to go for too long! But when I do travel it’s always fun but…. as they say there is no place like home and that’s why we try to make the Farmhouse your “Home Away From Home”. We actually live just to the South of the the Farmhouse so we are close by to tend to the animals and the needs of our guests, yet far enough away to also give our guests the privacy and space they want for a special time at the Farm. And if you are a lover of cats, The Farmhouse has it’s own special greeting committee of barn cats that are so friendly and social they get their own reviews in our in-house guest book!
