French Lick Resort Makes ‘Most Magnificent Gardens’ List
Historic Hotels of America has released its list of the top 25 “Most Magnificent Gardens” list for 2022 and French Lick Resort is among the hotels being recognized. The list features “some of the most magnificent and beautiful storybook gardens” among the nation’s hotels, resorts and inns.
French Lick Resort is included on the list for the gardens of its two hotels: French Lick Springs Hotel and West Baden Springs Hotel.
“Between both hotels, there are over 40 different varieties of flowering perennials, and 17 different varieties of summer annuals each year,” Historic Hotels of America said. “Roughly 11,000 summer annuals are planted throughout many flowerbeds, hanging baskets, and planters. Trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals can be seen in bloom from April-November throughout the resort. Summer annuals are installed by mid-May.”
French Lick Resort is the only inclusion from Indiana on the list. Last month, French Lick Springs Hotel was also featured on Historic Hotels of America’s 2022 Top 25 Most Unique Culinary Heritage and Culinary Traditions list.
Historic Hotels of America is an official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
