Love the peaceful location and how close it is to Holiday World. Perfect for our two families.

  • 4 of 5

Sitting on the porch in the morning and letting the kids play inside and outside the morning before the park opens is amazing. House has plenty of dishes and supplies in the kitchen to make any meal. Improved comfort this year with mattress toppers. This was our second time staying in the house. Only complaint is that the downstairs shower leaks pretty significantly. It did this last year too.

Wonderful Place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation. The house was wonderful. Plenty of room for everyone. We traveled with our family of five, our niece, and my in-laws. Gina was wonderful. She was always very helpful and understanding with my many questions. She also always responded quickly. Keep in mind this place is located on a farm so there will be farm smells, but it was never overwhelming and was not constant. The kids loved playing in the yard with the outside games that are provided. We would definitely recommend this location for people wanting to stay close to Holiday World. We would stay again if we are going to be in the area.

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!
