Many thanks to our hosts Scott and Vicki for a relaxing visit at their BnB. We stayed in the Denali suite which was a comfortable and quiet loft. The breakfasts were great and an afternoon snack of fresh blueberry crisp was delicious. Beautiful gardens, pool and hot tub. And Bailey, their dog, gave us an added warm welcome! The location is private but still close to the Dunes NP and nice restaurants in Chesterton. Couldn't ask for more! We would definitely stay there again.

Having never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast this was the best time I ever had. The wonderful breakfast each morning was superb. The hosts were so friendly and made us feel at home. The landscape and acreage added to the experience. I fell in love with Bailey the hosts beagle who greeted us upon arrival. There are not enough words to describe the four days we were there. If you plan to visit the area you must plan to stay at Home in the Woods. I cannot wait to visit again. Doug and Karen Chinn from Evansville Indiana.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay. Vicki prepared a delicious breakfast each morning which we ate on the deck overlooking the pool and wooded backyard. The grounds are lush with trees and flowers. Their dog Bailey is a sweetheart, well behaved and the cutest greeter ever. Vicki and Scott are great hosts and truly made us feel right at home.

True to its name, this place makes you feel at home in the woods. Situated on 4+ beautiful wooded acres, At Home in the Woods is a comfortable and relaxing get-away-from-it-all gem, but just minutes away from all the things that the area has to offer - notably the Indiana Dunes. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed with National Park themes and the breakfasts are outstanding! Vicki and Scott are warm, gracious hosts!

I absolutely loved my stay there. My room had great decor and was very clean. The shower was a very large walk in shower which was so refreshing after a very hot day in the sun. I enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the chicken coup and all the beautiful trees. My dogs were welcome and even were welcomed by Bailey the resident dog. Breakfast was so nice and peaceful as we ate outside on the upper deck overlooking the pool, beautiful backyard and wooded area. I accidentally showed up a day early for my reservation but Vicki was very accommodating and had my room ready in a very short time. If I’m ever in the area again I will definitely stay there. One of the nicest places I’ve stayed while traveling.

What an amazing and relaxing anniversary get away! Such a peaceful place. We had plans to visit Indiana Dunes but changed our minds when we got here. We decided to stay and enjoy the tranquility of the property. Scott and Vicky are the sweetest people. The breakfast each morning and the afternoon treats were nothing short of amazing! And we can't forget Bailey ❤️❤️ Sweetest dog hostess ever!

We spent our last three nights and two days of our vacation enjoying Big dune area, our accommodations and our hosts. Great B&B, great breakfast, no, it was a gourmet breakfast, fresh hand-sliced fruit, yogurt with fresh raspberries and shavings of orange rim on it, stuffed French toast, etc, etc…. Great recommendations for our outings each day! Thank you

Vicky and Scott are tremendous hosts. Bailey, the beagle greeted us each time we returned. The breakfast that Vicky prepares is indescribable. We stayed for three nights and each morning, breakfast was prepared to order and at your designated time. Vicky also makes her own jams and has a cookbook to boot with many of her magnificent recipes. The property is gorgeous and private. Indiana Dunes National Park is close by.

Often people choose their destination, then look for lodging as the afterthought. Vicky and Scott's Bed and Breakfast in itself would be a perfect destination for anyone looking for beauty, calm, and comfort. Had we scheduled more time into our trip we could have enjoyed their perfectly positioned pool and hot tub! Vicky has an eye for creating beauty with nature and plantings. There are many "rooms" throughout the back yard with seating where depending on your sun/shade requirements at the time, you can be settled into the perfect outdoor nook. The food is outstanding to say the least! I felt like it was a blessing from God that they had an empty room to accommodate us when we searched last minute for an overnight trip to the Indiana Dunes. This place is worth booking a year in advance!! Thank you so much!!

Your kinds words made our day. To see our guests enjoying the home and property is food for our souls. When I saw you relaxing in the gravity chair perfectly positioned between the witch hazel and viburnum bushes, I thought, how wonderful to see our guests at peace in our piece of paradise. Thanks for sharing!

We stayed here for two nights in July while visiting Indiana Dunes NP. I couldn't recommend it more. My family and I (myself, wife, and two teen boys) stayed in the Denali Tree House. It was very comfortable and we felt like we had plenty of space and privacy. The location is great. Easy drive to the park or to lots of places to eat in Chesterton. The property is really beautiful. They have a nice pool and hot tub, a lovely deck (we ate breakfast outside both mornings) and a truly amazing backyard. The portion close to the house is like a really nicely manicured park with a little frog pond - gorgeous. The back portion is wooded with some paths that make for a pleasant morning walk. Breakfast was excellent both mornings. Lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, and a nice entree. We were well fueled for our adventures each day. Scott and Vicky were great hosts. They gave us very useful tips on exploring the park, as well as some excellent restaurant recommendations. (Ivy's Bohemia House - fantastic!) Love the place. If you are going to visit Indiana Dunes, stay here.
