Great Farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came from California and Washington. My brother and I grew up in Dubois County so his family and I met to come visit our family and friends for the week. The Wilmes farmhouse was absolutely perfect for us! Fun for the kids to play and so nice to be able to have a home to live in for the week vs. a hotel. This was our second time staying here and we will continue to rent it every year when we come back. The owner's are very nice and accommodating. I highly recommend staying at this wonderful home!

Great place for a get together

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for dazzling and state of the art...this is not your place. If you are looking for comfortable and homey and well maintained this is for you. The setting is just wonderful, right smack in the middle of the heart of America's farmlands with grazing cows to keep you company. Our class reunion gathered here and loved it so much we booked it for next year already. It is well furnished with lots of room. simple and charming. The owners are gracious and accommodating. recommend it highly.

Perfect for our family of 12!

  • 5 of 5

The Farmhouse let our 3 generations settle in for a few days of family time. The surrounding area is quiet and has no traffic, so it's good for the little ones. The upstairs bathroom is beautiful and big. The 3 bedrooms are quite comfortable and well supplied. The downstairs bedroom and full bath gave Nana and Papa a bit of quiet after a full day of family fun. Holiday World and Santa Claus are literally only minutes away. Lincoln State Park is less than 1/2 hour. Gina is an amazing hostess, too! We will definitely book again the next time we go to Holiday World.

Wilmes Farmhouse- Peaceful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Holiday World off and on for 18 years and stayed at the local hotel. This time we wanted a place to spread out and relax. The Wilmes Farmhouse fit that perfectly for our family of 9. Gina always answered promptly to any questions we had and the house was clean and well supplied. My kids loved looking at the cows and the older girls LOVED the beautiful sunsets! We will definitely return to the farmhouse when we come back to Holiday World!

Beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

We went for a weekend getaway for our sons birthday and have some family time. The Wilmes farmhouse was perfect my parents and kids said this is where they wanted to stay the next time we go to Holiday World!! It's beautiful scenery, plenty of room and it's not far away from attractions and other things to do!! We roasted marshmallows and made Smores we basically enjoyed sitting together and the serenity of the farm my 9 mmonth old grandson liked the cows!! The Wilmes are close by if you have any problems or need anything!! Thank you for allowing us the use of your family's home it was beautiful!!

Awesome, clean and very roomy farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

We had a small family reunion of 7 adults and 2 children and the house seemed to welcome us as soon as we drove onto the property. Pretty, well cared for flowers blooming along the entrance side of the old farmhouse and a nice porch swing all caught my eye. Once inside everything was very nice, large rooms for eating and socializing and 4 bedrooms plus 2 full baths made everyone very happy. This farmhouse was just perfect and only a few miles to Holiday World, the reason for renting this home. It is furnished nicely with all the conveniences of home and we all enjoyed our stay so much that this ole Farmhouse is going to be our go-to rental for our yearly family reunion! Many thanks to the owner for answering my questions quickly and for her cooperation allowing us a later Sunday morning checkout. We will be back and hope others find this old, sturdy home as lovely as our family did.
