LeLand and LaRita Boren raised their family in this Upland, Indiana home. Affectionately known as the LeLaLo Farm, it was named for the first three members of their family.

LaRita originally hailed from Oklahoma. Well, in Oklahoma, as the story goes, the setting sun makes the barns look pink.

So, LeLand painted the barns pink to give his wife a glimpse of home in their small Indiana town. Isn’t that a lovely story? You can bet there’s plenty more good where that came from!

Today, their names are known for the great philanthropic works they have done for nearby Taylor University. LaRita Boren sat on the Board of Trustees at Taylor University for thirty years.

Although LaRita has since passed away, you can still enjoy this fabulous and comfortable country home.

I stayed in the Cardinal Room. Great windows, a neat painted tulip sink, and extra deep tub certainly made this a memorable Grant County stay!

Tromping around LaRita’s Lodge property was truly a highlight–as was speaking with the wonderful innkeeper. At the end of the day, though, I settled in on a glider swing and read a book–with a sweet aged white kitty for company.

Of course, this was after I got to climb a fence and watch a baby bull get dinner! Definitely something you don’t see every day and just another fun addition to a fantastic lodging option.
