About our Indiana Amish Country Inn

The Georgian style Victorian-era home and an adjacent medical clinic were built in 1880 by Dr. Hunn when the streets were still dirt and before Shipshewana was incorporated in 1889. The first 5 doctors, Dr. Hunn, Dr. Schrock, Dr. Hostetler, Dr. Norris, and Dr. Link, of Shipshewana, lived in the home and practiced in the adjacent medical clinic between 1880-1922.

In 1922 the property was acquired by Edward and Norma Wolfe.  Ed was the founder and owner of Wolfe Grain and an Indiana State Senator.  In 1986 the Mishler’s purchased the property and created the Morton Street Bed & Breakfast and the Bread Box.  In the year 2000, the property was purchased by the Scherger family who continued the business for 20 years.

In early 2019, The Traylors purchased the Morton Street Bed and Breakfast. They had moved to Shipshewana because of the people, atmosphere, and the spiritual focus of the area. The Traylors began updating the Inn with a more modern style featuring that of Joanna Gaines and the famous “Fixer Upper” farmhouse style. 

In June of 2020, Von and Tobi Oxenrider purchased the Inn with dreams of keeping the important history of Shipshewana thriving. Von is a teacher and Tobi an administrative assistant at a nearby Middle School. The couple have 3 children, a daughter Emma and 2 sons, Ethan and Kien. The Oxenriders can often be found at their parent’s shop around the corner, Two Chicks and a Chair on Harrison Street. Repurposing furniture and creating unique décor keeps the couple busy doing things they love, and they are inspired to have their creative passions show at the Morton House. The couple grew up in Middlebury and working at the shop has ignited a desire to return to the quaint town of Shipshewana and to be a part of its story. 

The Morton House will run as an un-hosted retreat for you and your guest. An un-hosted stay simply means that you will check in and out on our own. You will also provide your own meals from one of the amazing restaurants in the area. We provide the lodging, linens, towels and full kitchen facilities as well as coffee, tea, hot chocolate and snacks. Our goal is to make you feel welcomed and at home for your stay, without being underfoot. We are always just a phone call away to help you with any questions or needs you have.

 

Additional improvements and updates are forthcoming.
