Songbird Prairie Bed & Breakfast

174 N. 600 W.

The lovely Colonial country home with white-trimmed dormers may attract visitors, but it’s the grounds’ prairie grass, roses, and many trees that lure the namesake songbirds on their way to and from the Indiana Dunes. The four suites—Bluebird, Warbler, Purplefinch, and Cardinal (with bright red walls, of course)—have whirlpool baths and fireplaces, and a three-course breakfast is served in a sunroom that looks onto the bird-filled woods.

Insider Tip: There’s a microphone near one of the hummingbird feeders so guests can hear them “chirp” (a sound that’s actually made by their tails).
