Ah, crisp air and glorious colors. Hearty meals and comfy sweaters. They’re sure signs the fall season is here. Soak them up with a serene weekend getaway to Walhill Farm.
This 250-acre working farm in Batesville offers a peaceful setting of working farmland, including a 10-acre organic garden and 190 acres of pasture that provide ingredients for the fresh, inventive cuisine served at Walhill’s farm-to-table restaurant (they are serious about sustainability here). You’ll also find plenty of trees, perfect for long walks glimpsing drop-dead-gorgeous fall foliage.
Sound idyllic already? It gets better. To cap off a relaxing day outdoors, strolling through the woods, admiring the gardens, and saying hi to the animals, you can skip the drive home and snuggle up in one of Walhill’s four lovely guest rooms. Choose from the equestrian-themed Pony Room, the Caribbean room (think calm ocean breezes), the ADA-compliant Hoosier Room, and the Honeymoon Room.
The rooms are warm and inviting, the welcome amenities are top-notch, and the linens are so soft you’ll want to stay in bed forever. But you have to get up. You really do, because the breakfast and the beautiful country setting beckon as soon as the sun rises.
