Going to Santa Claus World

  • 4 of 5
This location is prime for a trip to Santa Claus World- now known as Holiday World. The rooms are larger than the pictures make them appear. There was more than enough room for my husband, myself, and three children- ages 2, 2, and 3. Right outside is a barn with many cows that the kids absolutely adored! Be warned that if you go in the summer, and are not use to the country, the cow smell might surprise you at first.... but having the cows outside the windows was completely worth it. We also went for a few walks up the gravel road and found a turtle and there were tons of frogs in the yard. Because the kids are so young, we spent a lot of time at the house. We had all of the meals at the house. There was a grocery store about 5-10 minutes away, so we could get all we needed.
I have to include that we have stayed in VRBO places before and this was the first one that provided laundry detergent, dish washing liquid and detergent, and coffee. It is the small things that make a place special. I would also like to include that we had a few minor glitches in our stay, but the owners were above and beyond accommodating. They were so kind and thoughtful to all of our needs. We had an open line of communication after our stay. For that, I am grateful.
I would recommend this property to anyone. We will return to this property for our next Santa Claus trip. Thank you for all of your kindness.

College Graduation

  • 5 of 5
Our family gathered to celebrate my nephew's University of Evansville graduation. There was plenty of room for all of us. We enjoyed the farm setting and had a pleasant walk around the property. The town of Santa Claus is an interesting place to visit. The owner was professional and efficient.

Nice house and property

  • 5 of 5
The location is right outside Ferdinand, close to Holiday World, I64, and Jasper. There is a working farm by the property which was cool for the kids to see. They saw a man on top of a grain silo, animals being fed, and farm equipment. The house was very comfy and we did lots of cooking in the kitchen over the holiday. They have the hugest closets in the bedrooms upstairs that I have ever seen. The owners were very accommodating and made sure we knew how to get in touch with them if we had any questions/problems.

Large home close to Holiday World

  • 4 of 5
There were 6 adults and 4 kids that stayed in the Wilmes Farmhouse in late August. We loved the location, just 6.5 miles away from Holiday world and easy access to the main road that runs you straight there. The place was large and had 4 bedrooms, but 5 beds and a pull out couch. The upstairs back bedroom was perfect for all the kids because it had 2 large beds and the soft with a Tv. Two additional bedrooms are upstairs and one downstairs. It is on a farm and the kids loved seeing and hearing the cows. it was nice to use the gas grill that was available and they also had a firepit. Two decks were available and the upstairs one had a nice view of fields. The kitchen was fully stocked and the appliances were updated. The living room was small, but sufficient with two couches, a chair and small dinnette table. We tended to hang out in the kitchen and eat in dining room. The swing on the front porch was used by the kids and they also played in the field in the back (kickball). You do get woke up by the cows mooing, but I was easily able to go back to sleep. The only complaint was the bed in "pink room" was very uncomfortable. Others in our party said their beds were okay, but there was a noticeable dip in the mattress in that room and my back hurt the next morning. The host was very nice and emailed us afterwards to ask about our stay and I mentioned the bed. She said it was the first they had heard that and she said she would look at it, which I thought was nice. Overall good rating, if the bed had been better, I would have given it excellent rating. The price was good for the convenience to the park and the size of the space.

Everything was clean and spacious and the downstairs bedroom made it better for me.

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time there at the farmhouse. The rooms were a great size and the dollhouse was a big hit with our grandchildren (4). girls. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while visiting Holiday World. It was within 15 minutes and the girls enjoyed the hills. I told them that the hills were as close to getting on a roller coaster that I was going to be. I'm afraid of heights, so there was no way I would ride one. The cows were very close by and the neighbor's dog greeted us one morning. We decided to have cereal on our last day, so we carried everything outside to the patio, downstairs, and ate our cereal, with the cows watching!

I would highly recommend the farmhouse to everyone.
