Catalpa Tree House is a very cute, very clean, fully-furnished apartment with its own private outdoor entrance, in the upper story of a 100+ year old farmhouse in Helmsburg, IN. Conveniently located to Nashville (10 minutes away) with lots of cool shops, galleries, & restaurants; Bean Blossom (5 minutes) home of the Bill Monroe Bluegrass Music Festival and Plum Creek Antiques; Bloomington (30 minutes) featuring vibrant art and cultural events, as well as Indiana University's plethora of sporting events; Columbus, (45 minutes) where you'll enjoy outlet shopping at Edinburgh Premium Outlet Mall; and Indianapolis (60 minutes). The owners (a 40-something couple with a young son) are the 5th generation to live in the early 1900s farmhouse, and occupy the main floor of the house. Guests' privacy is of the highest priority, and the owners are a quiet family who respect their guests' need for rest and relaxation.

Climb the stairs to find a nice deck with a hot tub overlooking Brown County's famous tree-covered hills (with a gorgeous view of the sunset sky), and table & chairs perfect for bird watching while you sip your morning coffee. From the deck you'll be able to see the Indiana Railroad train, as it goes through the little village of Helmsburg. When you step inside the front door, an airy and open space that's bright, comfortable, and clean awaits. All the rooms are spacious and decorated with vintage and up-cycled finds, as well as local art. Two cute sofas, a 40-inch flat screen TV, and a chair make for the perfect spot to snuggle, read, or watch a movie. High-speed internet, Roku, and the full Sling package provide endless options for TV watching. There are also books, games, a DVD player, a Wii video game console, and stereo for the times you may want to hunker down and stay in, cuddled up with lots of soft, cozy blankets.

The kitchen is completely furnished, right down to the forks...so bring along the food you want to cook and you'll be set. Cookware, colorful dishes, a toaster, blender, coffee maker, electric range, full-size fridge, and microwave are all there to make your mealtimes easy. You'll even find flour, sugar, spices, tea, and fresh, locally roasted coffee from Brown County Coffee. Adjoining the kitchen is the laundry room with a stacking HE washer/dryer. An iron and mini-size ironing board are also provided, if you are personally offended by wrinkles.

In the bedroom, the deliciously comfy queen bed is outfitted with crisp white linens and plenty of pillows. An antique dresser and a big closet will handle all the clothes you can pack. The full bath features a tub/shower combo, fluffy towels, shampoo, lotion, and locally made soap.

Brown County has lots of entertainment options, from outdoor activities such as ATV tours, zip-lining, gold-panning, horseback riding, golf, mountain biking, and hiking. There are over 200 shops in Nashville (a 10-minute drive), plus artists' studios, craft galleries, as well as many restaurants from which to choose. We have several wineries and breweries to visit, and Brown County State Park, Yellowwood State Forest, and Lake Lemon, are all within 10 minutes of Catalpa Tree House. The Bill Monroe Music Park-Campground hosts several music festivals throughout the year, so come get your bluegrass and jazz on in beautiful downtown Bean Blossom...you'll be there within five minutes of leaving Catalpa Tree House's driveway. The Helmsburg General Store is practically a stone's throw from your seat on the deck, and a good place to pick up a Hunt Brothers Pizza, chicken wings, some beer, incidentals, or fishing bait.

This was such a fantastic place to stay for our first weekend away with our toddler. The treehouse and the land around it were beautiful. We enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels from the large windows and the spacious deck in the mornings. There was a little nook in the corner of the bedroom where my daughter's pack and play fit perfectly. The home was close to all the attractions in Nashville, but also far enough to feel peacefully secluded. The hot tub on the 2nd-story deck was the piece de resistance for my husband and me. With our little one's early bedtime, we knew we wouldn't be going anywhere in the evenings. Watching the sunset from the hot tub under the Catalpa tree was the perfect way to relax.

A very cozy place to stay. Wonderfully clean. Comfy bed. Bring EVERYTHING that you need though. There are no amenities (e.g., coffee, bath soap, condiments like salt…etc.).

Really cozy and cute place to stay, and the nearby town of Nashville was really quaint too! We loved the hot tub and amenities provided. Would definitely recommend for a getaway!

Thank you for reaching out. We really enjoyed our stay and specifically the rental we chose. Everything was as expected and the communications were great. Just the right information and the right time. Even though we checked in late, instructions were clear and we were easily able to follow them. I realize every property you rent has their own unique circumstances (keys vs. keypad entry, some with amenities that need special instruction, etc.) we found everything to be clearly explained.

An adorable apartment with a great location! About a 12 minute drive from downtown Nashville. Very quiet and comfortable. Couldn’t even hear the neighbors downstairs. I would definitely stay again.
