About the property

Spend your next getaway or family retreat in the 'Old Hickory Cabin' located just 1/2 mile west of the quaint village - Nashville, Indiana. Beautifully decorated and well appointed, you will find this cabin has everything you need for a relaxing stay. It's close enough to all the activities, shops and restaurants you want, but just far enough away for you to have the privacy you desire.

Old Hickory cabin sits on 4 wooded acres with a large deck in back that overlooks the woods (and hickory trees) and a small creek in the valley. You will feel like you are in a tree house with the views below. It's a great place to bird watch and spot the abundant wildlife.

Just inside the front door, to the left, you'll find the living room is one step up. It features a 2 story Brown County stone fireplace, cathedral ceilings, wide plank pine flooring with hand cut nails. You will immediately notice the french doors that open onto the deck. While you're relaxing inside, you will enjoy amenities such as a 26' flat screen T.V. w/cable, DVD,VCR and CD stereo and a couch that opens into a queen bed.

The entry, kitchen and bathroom are on the main level and have nicely tiled floors. The entry has a large wonderful 'old hickory' style coat rack with a mirror.

The custom cabinets are unique and have tin inserts in the upper doors. The kitchen is well furnished with cooking and eating utensils. The full bathroom contains a tub/shower unit, single sink, toilet and plenty of storage.

Upstairs is the bedroom with great views too. A comfy pillow top mattress,'old hickory' twig style headboard and handmade quilt add to the rustic charm of this cabin. You'll find the cabin is well thought out and the floor plan makes good use of the space. Old Hickory cabin is a wonderful relaxing place to get away from the real world, slow down and reconnect with yourself and loved ones. Be our guests!

We hope you will find this cabin as pleasant and relaxing as we do. The location is great and very convenient too.

Beautiful property and home. Backyard is forest, which creates a great view from the patio. Nice little fire pit in the front yard. Gas grill is available.

Charming for a romantic weekend

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was clean except for a few oversights we had to clean ourselves (top of fridge, under bed, deck furniture). Found a bucket of something icky on the deck table -- not sure what this was so we left it there. Location was convenient for driving to town (not really for walking as it was along a highway), with nice forested lot, just leafing out in end of April. (We saw deer from the lovely deck. Nice view of the treetops from bed.) Mostly quiet and peaceful, but there was a bit of car noise from the highway in front of the house as it's not set back very far. Nicely, comfortably furnished with a romantic fireplace. No pix of the bathroom on the listing, but it was fine. Drawbacks: very minimal closet/drawer space, precarious-feeling stairs from driveway to entry and from bedroom to bathroom, no cushions for deck furniture, no clothes washer/dryer, no dishwasher, no rubber gloves for washing dishes (we bought some and left them there). Otherwise, well equipped. Accordingly, probably best for a weekend stay, rather than longer. A short drive to Brown State Forest and Yellowwood for hiking. Big Woods is recommended for dining -- they have a couple locations in Nashville with different menus. Everything we had was very good.
