Seasons at Wilstem


Springtime ushers in a delightful showcase of flowering trees and wildflowers including dogwoods and redbuds, May apples, buttercups, and dozens of other species native to Southern Indiana.


In summer majestic oaks, elms and tulip poplars provide a dense canopy of shade along the winding trails that crisscross the property. There also are great stands of some of the highest grade walnut trees in the world.


Fall brings cool, crisp nights that trigger a rainbow of colors in the hills of Wilstem Guest Ranch. Hackberry, wild cherry and shag bark hickory trees display the vivid colors of the changing season.


The Wilstem forest is alive in winter with enchanting silhouettes against the stark gray sky. A warm, cozy cabin at Wilstem is a great retreat after enjoying a day of winter sports at nearby Paoli Peaks.
