Escape to... McKenzie House Bed & Breakfast
Unwind in one of our five wonderful suites. Whether you take the toll road or drive the back roads of Northern Indiana, when you arrive at McKenzie House you will find a peaceful and relaxing environment that you will want to experience again and again. We think you will agree with those who have said “we must do this again” — coming back to McKenzie House to celebrate all the special events of your life or just for no reason other than pampering yourself and someone you love. You will know the minute you arrive on the tree lined property that you have come to the right place to unwind — from the beautiful main house with its wrap around porch, to our unique carriage house with stone silo, to the many common areas designed for your comfort and relaxation.
Plan your next birthday, anniversary, family reunion, girls getaway (shop, scrapbook, lay by the pool and enjoy your favorite book!), guys getaway (fish – golf – hike or lay in the hammock and read/ sleep while enjoying the beauty of nature all around you). Surprise someone with a gift certificate – what better gift to give than a night or two at the McKenzie House – a totally tranquil stay. Plan a tea party, take a meeting, or host a group event in The Gathering Place — our 350 square foot multi purpose room that features a private entrance and its own multi-level deck.
The beautifully appointed entrance welcomes guests to their destination. Once you arrive you will have full view of the carriage house and its stone silo that contains a spiral staircase leading to Courtney's Suite — a 400 square foot romantic hideaway. At the foot of that staircase you will find Mollie's Suite with over 350 square feet in which to unwind. Each of these units has its own porch overlooking the woods and the more than 100 feet of porch surrounding the main house, where you will find Nicolle's, Michelle's, and Megan's Suites.
Each room is especially designed to renew your spirit and relax your mind. Take your pick of suites – all are guaranteed to be a delight in their own way – enjoy the character of each and the details that set it apart – hopefully you will experience each one and find your favorite and make it a tradition to visit and bring your friends and family.
Sherry & Bruce, your hosts at McKenzie House have designed every detail of the bed & breakfast with you (the guest) in mind. Whether you are traveling for pleasure or business – we want you to feel at home and experience the peace and relaxation you deserve.

The McKenzie House Family
The McKenzie House Bed & Breakfast has been a lifelong dream of mine – owning a place that would give everyone that visits a totally tranquil experience, the opportunity to step out of their hectic life and spend time enjoying nature, a slower pace of life and some pampering. When Bruce and I met – I shared my dream with him and he was ready to make a change in his life and share in my dream. Our journey brought us to Middlebury, a small community in Northern Indiana’s Amish country, that offered what we had looked for and hence “our dream” became a reality. The house is named after my only daughter, McKenzie – the joy of my life. The five suites are named after Bruce 's delightful daughters – Nicolle, Michelle, Megan, Courtney and Mollie. Each of them, though scattered across the United States – have been able to enjoy the house and our new family. Now we invite you to come and enjoy this beautiful place God has so graciously blessed us with and experience the McKenzie House.
