Here in Southern Indiana , there's a very special town called Santa Claus. And that's where you'll find Santa's Lodge and St. Nick's Restaurant (www.santaslodge.com). 'Tis the season everyday at Santa’s Lodge! Built with a log cabin motif, Santa's Lodge has all of today's amenities, including suites with whirlpools. The childhood farm of Abraham Lincoln is just a few minutes away.
Just a short jaunt away from French Lick, across a covered bridge, is the Wilstem Guest Ranch (www.wilstemguestranch.com). The original lodge belonging to early 1900's business man Ed Ballard, is still here, sitting on 1,100 secluded acres, where the rich and famous "got away from it all". If only walls could talk! You can even stay in the lodge or select one of the cabins that dot the property. Enjoy nature, horseback riding, hiking and swimming in this special retreat. The Loft in our Big Red Barn can accommodate gatherings up to 250 people.
Near Montgomery, you'll find an Amish settlement and Mennonite community. And that’s also where you'll find The Gasthof Amish Village (www.gasthofamishvillage.com). Our restaurant serves homemade Amish meals 7 days a week. Our Inn features guestrooms with Amish décor. Visit our unique shops, the weekly flea markets (in season) and take a tour of Amish country. Then visit our neighboring property, World Famous Dinky's Auction House, where the Midwest's largest auction is held every Friday evening.
In French Lick, you'll be surrounded by the past at the Beechwood Inn (www.beechwoodin.com). The home of tycoon Ed Ballard in the early 1900's, Beechwood hosted celebrities like Joe Louis, Irving Berlin and, as legend has it, Al Capone. Today, Beechwood Inn is a Bed & Breakfast with lavishly decorated rooms. Exceptional fine dining is also offered for lunch and dinner.
