Inn at Aberdeen, LTD


The Inn was developed in the 1850s, the home occupied by the Ritter family from New York and completely remodeled and enlarged in 1995.  Besides the original dairy farm and apple orchard, the property was also later known as Timberlake Farms, where Cutting Quarter Horses were bred.  Stories also link the home to the Underground Railroad.

The Inn was the first structure in the new community of Aberdeen, which is now surrounded by the Course at Aberdeen. It received the Valparaiso Community Improvement Award in 1996 and is depicted in a Mitch Markovitz South Shore Series poster.

The Inn has been graced by many travelers from all over the world, having hosted Supreme Court Justices, TV and movie stars such as John Lithgow, Suze Orman, Bruce Jenner, and more.

Voted the Best B&B by the readers of the TIMES newspaper and SHORE magazine, the Inn has been featured in MIDWEST LIVING and other magazines, as well as on ABC-Chicago TV’s 190 North and the PBS special “Haunts & Legends.”

With its own chefs, the Inn offers breakfasts, brunches, luncheons, dinners and receptions. Weddings in the library, solarium or outdoors in the gazebo have always been special at the Inn, offering customized planning and staging to make the couple’s dreams come true. Weddings can accommodate from 2 to 250 under a romantic canopy with music and dancing into the night.  Baby showers, graduation dinners, birthdays, anniversaries, and wakes are just a few of the events where guests have found the Inn to be the ideal atmosphere. As one guest put it, “The Inn has the warmth and comfort of Grandma’s, with all the modern-day amenities and services.”
