“Beautiful B&B”
Reviewed June 13, 2008

We stayed at Songbird Prairie the nights of May 30 and June 1. It was the perfect stopover spot for our weekend trip to Chicago, celebrating our first anniversary. The house was gorgeous, and we loved our room, the Warbler Suite. We felt special, as we were welcomed into the home of Barbara and Efrain Rivera. The breakfasts were as delicious as they were beautifully presented, and we enjoyed the sights and sounds of the birds just outside the breakfast nook windows. If we're in the area again, we would love to stay at Songbird Prairie!

We stayed at the Songbird Prairie Bed & Breakfast for our wedding night, and we loved it! The room was beautiful and clean, and there was a great jacuzzi tub. The entire house was beautiful, and it is nestled in the woods with great birds singing that can be heard in the dining room. Breakfast was prepared for us before we left early in the morning to catch a flight, and it was great! The owners were very kind to us.

This was a great get-away for my husband and I.

We loved it from the moment we drove up.
It's nice to get away from the city and into
the country.

The property has nice trails and a fire pit too.

The rooms are excellent, clean and top notch!
All rooms had their own bathroom. Ours had a jucczi tub.
Very spacious room.

The hosts are wonderful! The food is great!
It was a great place to just relax and get away
from our hectic schedules!

I especially appreciated the no smoking and no drinking policy.

Guys--- even my husband enjoyed his stay. (Yes there was a TV in the room and if you want there is wireless internet in on the property)

  • Liked — The host and hostess and the lovely rooms and the food EVERYTHING!
  • Disliked — The price, wanted to stay longer, but too expensive

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Songbird Prairie for our 20th anniversary with the hope of having just a quiet time away from the hectic pace of life. What we experienced was so much more! Barbara and Efrain create a warm and welcoming retreat that is filled with little "wow" moments, one after the other (snacks and gourmet tea on hand in the kitchen, bird books and binoculars for use in the sun room, more than 1 bath towel per person in your room!). The Riveras are gracious and take such care with the little details that we felt "at home" and even quite pampered. The calm and restful atmosphere even led to all the visiting couples at the Inn meeting spontaneously in the sun room at dusk one evening. We enjoyed snacks, conversation and laughter while we watched the wild animals come up from the forest to eat outside the sun room. The Inn is beautifully decorated and our room was exquisite. We enjoyed short day trips to shopping nearby and to the Indiana Dunes only 1/2 an hour away. We have already recommended Songbird Prairie to our friends and we look forward to visiting again sometime.

My husband and I spent two nights in the Bluebird Suite. Our room was so romantic. Barbara and Efrain have done a wonderful job of creating the perfect romantic getaway. Their property along with our room was simply magnificant. The breakfasts were delicious. It was so wonderful being able to enjoy all of the birds and wildlife while we stayed at this enchanting place. Thanks so much for creating such a magical place for others to stay. We hope to return again in the future.

We were married at nearby Aberdeen Manor in Valpo. Our family gifted us a night at Songbird Prairie after our reception so we wouldn't have to stay at a regular hotel. Everything was wonderful! My husband picked up our key prior to the regular check-in time since we would be arriving after hours. The Bluebird Suite was so beautiful when we arrived; it exceeded the photos on the website. Candy, chocolate-covered strawberries, and sparkling cider were waiting for us to snack on in our suite. We especially appreciated the lighted whirlpool tub to relax in after a very long day. The breakfast we had the next morning was fantastic! We enjoyed sitting in the sunny breakfast room and its expansive views of the property and woods. It was so relaxing and quiet, which was much appreciated after all of the wedding hubub over the prior two days. We were too full to eat our warm apple pie at the end of the meal so Barbara packed it up "to go." It is obvious that Efrain and Barbara pay attention to detail and care about providing their guests an exceptional experience. We would stay there again without question.

We have been to the Songbird Prairie Bed & Breakfast twice now. My husband & I love the fact that we can check in, go out to dinner, & come back and just relax. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous. You can take a secluded walk or just sit in the dining area and have something to snack on and watch the birds flying around & other animals playing. The breakfast is unbelievable.
Barbara makes a 3 course breakfast for you & you have your own table to sit at, so you can have a peaceful breakfast with your spouse. This is wonderful for me & my husband, since this is the only time we actually can sit together and eat breakfast without interruptions. Barbara & Efrain make you feel so comfortable & welcome. I personally have been to 3 other Bed & Breakfast locations and never felt 100% relaxed and welcomed. This has definately become our personal romantic get a way. We were just there in April and are already planning our next get a way. I would strongly recommend this Bed & Breakfast:)
