Our stay at the Wilmes farmhouse was fantastic. The house was clean, comfortable and felt like home

  • 5 of 5

During the day our family went to Holiday World and in the evenings we spent our time playing yard games and sitting around the fire pit. Gina has everything you would possibly need stocked at the house. Just bring your food and toothbrush. The view from the backyard is beautiful. Our family had a wonderful experience at the farmhouse and we all hope to make it our yearly trip. Thank you Gina and your family.

We had a wonderful time. The kids enjoyed being abke to have the fire and make Smores. They enjoyed being able to play outside where they could play capture the flag and flashlight tag I stead of being I side playing on computer. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. A nice hit run for the older adults to relax in after a day in holiday world would have been nice.

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.
