“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at the B&B. The Victoria and Scott were very warm and welcoming, the house was emaculate. I stayed in alot of B&B's and this is the best by far. The ambiance is cozy and relaxing, the views of the surrounding woods are outstanding. I love the rustic interior and my girlfriend is going to have me busy trying to duplicate many of Victoria's decorating ideas.We wanted for nothing but to stay a few more nights.

The breakfast was plentiful and tasty, and we enjoyed talking to Victoria and Scott over breakfast. The bed was very comfortable, I have never had such a good nights sleep away from home.

On a side note....as part of a gay couple I am always a bit hesitant to stay at a B&B as I understand not everyone is accepting of my lifestyle. Victoria and Scott didn't bat an eye at having us show up on thier doorstep and made us feel very welcomed.

I highly recommend this B&B, it will be everything you hoped for and more.

We just returned from our second stay here. Just as wonderful as the first time! We have stayed in the Smoky Mountain room, and this past weekend, the Rocky Mountain room. Both are absolutely beautiful and very well-appointed. Scott and Vicki are the nicest hosts around. The breakfast is always well-presented and delicious. Loved having breakfast in front of the window watching all the birds on the feeder in the snow. The property here is awesome! Both times we stayed here we put on their snow shoes and hiked down the back end of the property. Make sure you try it. The town of Chesterton is a lovely and charming town to visit. (a short 5 minute drive to town) Being so close to Lake Michigan is also a plus. We hope to return in warmer weather so that we can use the beautiful newer pool. You will love it here!

Scott and Vicki are amazing people and were extremely accommodating for a gluten and dairy allergy. This was one of the best experiences I have had and the house was extraordinarily beautiful. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Rocky Mountain Room!

We enjoyed a fall evening at the "Home in the Woods BB" and found the accomodations very
comfortable and relaxing. The color was near peak and added to the enjoyable experience. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast experience.

My son and I spent one night at the inn. We shared the Smoky Mountain Room, which has a king bed and also a small interior room with a twin bed. It was extremely clean. My only complaint was the room seemed slightly musty on arrival, but that was quickly remedied by opening a window. The beds were very comfortable and the steam shower was luxurious! Scott and Victoria are thoughtful and helpful hosts. A delcious dessert was provided in the evening and breakfast the following morning was wonderful. The inn is located on a quiet street and the grounds are beautiful. We genuinely enjoyed our stay and can easily recommend the inn to others.

The wife and I stayed here Fri. Oct 25th - Sun. Oct. 27th, 2013 - as we were attending a Gary Chapman "The Marriage You've Always Wanted" conference at nearby Liberty Bible Church in Chesterton. Victoria greeted us and gave us a tour, and prepared for us the most marvelous breakfasts each morning of our stay. She also gave us great local restaurant recommendations (Don Quitoes in Valparaiso and LaCreiza's in Chesterton). We met her husband Scott on Sunday morning and he was instrumental in making arrangements for my wife to get her coat back from the restaurant we left it at the night before! The room was very comfy. We especially loved the Rocky Mountain room large whirlpool tub. The bed was very comfortable - and the pillows were too (a tough thing for me to find). We highly recommend this place as a pleasant alternative to the ordinary hotels out there. Desserts were great at night too! We hope to return to visit the Dunes and local shops in Valparaiso!! Only downsides was our limited time to enjoy everything available there (treadmill, trails, pool in the summer, hot tub, steam spa - [we forgot our swimsuits - but they had some we could have bought!]) Thanks, Victoria & Scott!

Room Tip: double person sized whirlpool tub in the Rocky Mountain room!!

I've stayed in a lot of B&B's all over the world and this is one is really amazing. The owners just go out of their way to address every detail possible to make it a quality experience. From the pool to the steam shower to the hot tub and jacuzzi's, you just have everything. We stayed in the downstairs room and the decor was lovely, homey and comfortable. The room itself was was plenty for us, but there was also a kitchenette and big living room just outside the door. We toured the upstairs rooms before leaving and found them charming as well. Dessert is provided in the evening (and left out so you can have as much as you'd like), gourmet coffees and teas available round the clock and a full breakfast in the morning where you have the chance to meet the other guests. It's also very close to the Dunes which is why we came to northern Indiana. Treat yourself....this is 'home' the way I wish it could be all the time.
