Just over an hour from Chicago, Emerson House is a 7 bedroom, 6.5 bath bed & breakfast available for private hire. Nightly rental includes exclusive, private use of the estate and surrounding 30 lush acres as well as a European Breakfast. Emerson House delivers seclusion and serenity in a country environment of beautifully appointed modern luxury, perfect for group retreats, reunions, and bridal parties.
Originally built as a Sears kit home and later expanded to become a 7 bedroom B&B with full spa, Emerson House is truly unique. The setting in the rural countryside of LaPorte County, offers an unmatched immersive nature experience on manicured grounds, groomed trails, a bubbling creek and open meadow.
Please inquire separately for opportunities to host an event such as a wedding, reception, or publicly promoted retreat.
In addition to our guest’s exclusive, private use of Emerson House and next morning European Breakfast, we are happy to upgrade your stay with a Chef’s Table prepared by our own chef-in-residence complete with select wine pairings from our preferred purveyors. Chef's meals are planned with an eye to provisioning a next day picnic lunch.
Experiential services can be arranged in the sumptuous Emerson House spa. Connect with abundant wildlife and nature on the stunning grounds and minutes away visit Lake Michigan and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and state parks. And we are happy to prepare an itinerary for sightseeing and local excursions: wine, brewery and spirits tasting tours, antiquing, art galleries and dining, all just minutes away near Michigan City and New Buffalo along the Indiana and Michigan lakefront. Our secluded and beautifully remote location is conveniently accessed by car or train just a little more than an hour from Chicago.
Guests are always personally welcomed to Emerson House upon arrival and introduced to the property and grounds. After the introduction to the property, depending on the meal service preferences and group needs, an “Experience Manager” may be onsite (but out of the way) throughout your stay.
We’re never more than a call or text away.
