Two night Monday-Tuesday stays only. You will be
wise as an owl when you choose this special! Migrate to Songbird Prairie for a
two-night stay for two all just 50 miles southeast of Chicago.

Flutter past the front door and choose among the Robin, Bluebird, Cardinal, and Purplefinch Suites at the property named one of Midwest Living‘s favorite B&Bs and “one of the 20 perfect summer getaways” by Travel + Leisure.

All rooms have warming gas fireplaces and spa tubs for two with the relaxing and soothing benefits of Chromotherapy. You’ll wake up chirping after your first night on plush beds, and then enjoy a breakfast in the sunroom, listening to the sweet songs of the birds through microphones to the outside. Trade in your bird’s-eye view of nature for one that’s up close and personal when you plan a visit to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, where Karner Blue butterflies flit, swallows nest, and waves crash along the shores. Shop at the nearby Lifestyles before dining on duck à l’orange at Bon Femme Café or tapas and paella at Restaurante don Quijote.

Trust us—this Escape is not just for the birds.

  • “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.”
