Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Nashville - Cottonwood Cabin

Sleeps Four. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom.

During August I will discount weekend nights to $175 and weekday nights (Sunday-Thursday) to $150.

One bedroom w/ loft family cabin located on 16 wooded acres in NW Brown County. Very secluded, peaceful and full of wildlife.

I've owned this cabin for 15 years and regularly use it with my friends and family. And thus -- a family cabin. What you are getting is a second home set-up for comfort. Nice beds, large working kitchen with most modern conveniences -- convection oven/stove, microwave, fridge (and stocked with basics that we use ourselves and you are also welcome to use), good cookware, dishwasher (that moveable type), coffee maker, electric skillet, three (count 'em) Weber grills, spices. I stay at rental homes myself from time to time -- I hate dealing with burned-up teflon skillets and dull knives. That won't be your issue -- I promise.

I adore music and if you do to, it's a fun experience. I have a new computer running itunes connected to the vintage stereo. And in itunes I have my music collection -- 36,000 songs for you to enjoy. I usually just play it on random -- it's a fun, permanent radio station. I also have about 300 LP records, from your 'youth'. There are two guitars, strung, played and maintained. A capo, extra strings, picks, etc. If you play, enjoy these.

There's a wood-burning stove which is wonderful to run during the cooler months. Likely required in the coldest months. There's a large, covered front porch and (so Brown County) I have an old couch out there, porch fans, outdoor speakers. A great place to sit and gaze into quiet show that is the woods directly in front of you. We have a pileated woodpecker who lives forty yards into the woods and many other birds and wildlife.

We have two big TVs and associated DVD players, stereo (already noted), new Windows 8 computer, two window unit AC's that do the job.

The bath is nice -- shower insert, pedestal sink, etc.

This is about a 18 year old cabin, built from a kit (courtesy of Poole Saw Mill in Helmsburg, IN). It's poplar log that was laid green and seasoned in-place for two years. Then finished. The man who built it, Daniel, is Amish and did a nice job. He lived on the property for about for about five years and there are several charming outbuildings -- outhouse, manger, canning shed, chicken coop and a little structure on the 'back 40'. Daniel lived in that crazy structure out back for a couple years with his wife and two kids while he was developing the property! I built a big barn in 2001. And there is a large deck on the rear. I recently bought two of those cantilevered umbrellas for shading, for the deck.

About Curt Churchman

I purchased this mondern-built (c. 1998) cabin in 2000 and added a large deck, barn and did lots of grading to create a terraced hillside and large, open back meadow. My family and I have been continuous visitors through the years. I recently began renting our family cabin and hope that you might enjoy it the way my family and I have. I live in Indianapolis, am raising two boys and own an art gallery specializing in historic Indiana artwork.

Why Curt Churchman chose Indiana

A wonderful, quiet retreat well off the beaten path. When I drive down from Indy, I open the car door and step out of my vehicle to total quietude. If you're looking for an escape from your hectic, weekly routine this might be the answer.

What makes this cabin unique

With sixteen aces and much rolling terrain, strolling the property is a sweet diversion. My favorite pastime is listening to or playing music on the large and comfy front porch. I recently added outdoor speakers and two lit, outdoor fans (with fan remote -- oooh) which creates a wonderful atmosphere for relaxing.

Peaceful & secluded

  • 3 of 5

Cabin was rustic & clean inside. Comfortable. Nothing fancy or new. Some neat artwork on walls. Dog enjoyed exploring property. Pond was very small & didn't even try to fish. Some of the out buildings in poor shape. Saw 2 deer grazing in evening & raccoon was on porch at night. Had roll around A/C downstairs & window A/C upstairs. It was very hot when we stayed & A/C didn't seem to cool very well. Seemed closest to Bean Blossom which is how we traveled back & forth. About 20 min. to Nashville.

Beautiful peaceful cabin in the woods.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed the peacefulness of the location. Rolly wooded property removed from the busyness of traffic and congestion yet we were within 15 minutes of Nashville and Brown County State Park. I highly recommend this quiet getaway for anyone who needs time away.

Beautiful, remote property

  • 5 of 5

A true country cabin, completely unique in its construction and location, and surrounded by quiet, rural wilderness. There is little in the way of amenities - the nearest grocer sells little more than a gas station. But that's the point: this cabin and the property it sits on let you reconnect with what's important. Bring family or friends here and spend some quality time with them. Or take a short ride to Yellowwood State Forest and hike. Or drive into Nashville. You'll love coming back to your hidden accommodations. We had a blast and plan to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. On grocery stores (nearby amenities) -- I usually stop at the Kroger in Martinsville on my way in (from Indy). The IGA in Nashville is a decent grocer too, if slightly spendy. And for quick needs, Morgantown IGA is about fifteen minutes away.

Gracious host, great hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Curt was such a helpful and accommodating 'host' from the moment we made our first inquiry to following up during our stay, and after our departure. This is a really remote, rustic hideaway - perfect for those who really want isolation, peace, and to see no one else unless they venture out. It is pitch black at night, so on a clear night the star-gazing must be spectacular! We have stayed in many VRBO's, and this one was by far the most "lived in" - - - which also made it feel homey, but less like most vacation-area "income" properties. We enjoyed seeing a doe during the evening, and wish we could have remained longer to see what other wildlife might have appeared.
