Property Details

Artist’s Retreat Cottage
Many a Brown County artist has set up an easel in the beautiful valley where Owl Creek flows past enormous old sycamore, walnut, and hickory trees. This is the serene setting for Artist’s Retreat Cottage, and is believed by some to be the site where artist L. O. Griffiths painted his lovely piece entitled “Owl Creek Farm”. The quaint 1-bedroom cottage offers guests a chance to rest and reflect on the important things in life.
Everything you need is provided…such as linens for bed, bath, and kitchen, soap and shampoo, and even basic pantry staples like flour, sugar, and coffee. You are invited to make yourselves at home and pretend that this is your very own private getaway.

Equipped with high speed wireless Internet and satellite TV, it’s possible to stay connected with the ‘outside world’, but you may just choose to connect to the real outside world by foraging for hickory nuts, walnuts, buckeyes, or wildflowers. Artist’s Retreat Cottage sits on about 25 acres of land that has been in same family since 1849, and is a beautiful spot just 2 miles from downtown Nashville.

Nicely furnished and well decorated, the cottage incorporates a number of antiques throughout, but guests’ comfort is always a priority, so a queen size memory foam mattress and super soft pillows will draw you into a blissful slumber when night falls.

Comfortable seating in the living room makes a great place for reading or watching the flat-screen TV. A gas fireplace in the reading nook of the kitchen is a cozy place for choosing one of our many books, or chatting with the cook. Enjoy meals at the dining table.

There are a number of outdoor places to sit and contemplate your good fortune of spending a few special days in Brown County. It might be hard to decide where you want to sit first: on the deck or porch, near the fire pit, in the bubbling hot tub, or in the shelter house. A charcoal grill, horseshoes, and corn hole boards are also provided for more leisure time fun.

Come for a visit and discover for yourself why the owners’ families have called Brown County ‘home’ for more than 150 years!
