Welcome to Whippoorwill Woods!
We are blessed to have you come and enjoy this gracious part of creation. Nature can ‘teach you the unforced rhythms of grace’ as our welcome sign states. Whippoorwill Woods is 3.8 miles North of Nashville.

Upon entering Whippoorwill Lane a majestic view of Brown County Greets you. The woods on the lane are intimate and dense so that you might wonder where the cabin is but at the top of the drive, the world opens up to reveal a secluded cabin and one of the two reported highest views of Brown County. The cantilevered deck looks out onto vast ridges of trees and a 2/3 acre pond.

On a clear day you can see the tower at the south entrance of the Brown County State Park which is about five miles as the crow flies. In the fall, as you take a relaxing dip in the hot tub, you have one of the best private vistas to be enjoyed in this part of the world. A well-marked mile-long trail past the tree house, around the blue gill stocked pond and down to the confluence of the streams connects on the top of the west side of the property to the Yellowwood trail system which then leads back up to the path in the front of the cabin.

The cabin was built in 1979 by George Woods. Its design is simple and beautiful, artistically using poplar, maple, hickory, oak and cedar wood. The spiral stairway was the first addition to the cabin after we bought it in 1992 as we had young children at the time.

On the first floor the windows are large which brings the woods and vistas into the living space. The windows on the second floor are awash in summer green and fall yellow. The living space is cozy with a woodstove and comfortable seating.

The kitchen is simple yet very convenient. Dining and sleeping arrangements allow room for 4 guests. This includes a double foldout couch on the first floor plus a double bed and two beds on the second floor loft in two separate sleeping areas. The second floor is an open loft with an A-frame roof and railing that overlooks the living space.

Whippoorwill Woods is a cabin and woods that have been enjoyed by over several hundred people in the years that have owned it. This gracious place is perfect for a variety of occasions including; intimate anniversaries, fall getaways, Seder meals, work, school, and simple, beautiful personal retreats. Blessings and welcome to all.

This cabin has usable water supplied by the lake well. The water is safe, tested and filtered, but, it is not "city water". You might want to bring some drinking water with you if you do not like the taste of well water.

All our cabins have a 3 night minimum for Major Holidays.

Great cabin and very secluded location. Rustic but with many modern amenities. Huge back deck with great views. Hot tub was broken down but it was communicated early. Would recommend!

The view is amazing. We loved how quiet and private the cabin was. Less than 10 minutes away from town, but still so private. I wish we could have stayed longer. The outdoor set up was amazing. Plenty of seats and things to do. Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend

Cabin was great and as advertised: very clean, secluded with great views from the deck, working hot tub, and 1-mile hiking trail on the property.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect and the cabin is adorable. It was a really peaceful place. Close to Nashville if you want to head into town for some shopping or dinner. Check-in was easy. We will definitely return.

The cabin absolutely surpassed our expectations! Everything was even prettier in person and that view…just breath taking! We loved how quiet it was out there and how isolated we felt though it was just a quick trip trip to Nashville to do some exploring and grab lunch. One of our favorite parts was sitting out around the fire pit at night, looking at the stars and listening to the coyotes off in the distance. It was the perfect reset for our family and we have already booked our next visit!!

This place is absolutely amazing!! From the phenomenal views to the hot tub to the trails it is all around the perfect place. We went when there was rain one day and snow the next but still had such a great time inside the cabin is so cozy. Can't wait to come back a different time of year to see how everything looks in the spring and fall! Love how close Nashville is, only a few minutes away.

Lovely property! We've stayed in Nashville several times now & this one has the best location - super close to town, but also secluded! Lovely views! Great outdoor lounging spaces.

Indoors was pretty too! Very nice wood, windows, & fire place. We enjoyed the big fire pit & hot tub, but we're quite comfortable with the water quality in thw hot tub & the management heard our concerns about it.

Top to bottom and everything in between, this is the best cabin in all of Brown County. We've already booked for next year. Do NOT hesitate to book this little slice of heaven!

This is a great solution for a harmonious escape for the independent. I love the loft feel to the beds. The big windows allow so much natural light to flood the space, it creates an environment that is easy to break with a rigid routine and enjoy a movie, book, and a glass of wine.

This place is wonderful!! The view is incredible, and the cabin itself is well cared for.

I didn’t pay attention to the fact that it didn’t have wifi when booking, so if that matters to you it might be an issue. Cellphone service was spotty out in the woods. Otherwise, it was fine! That was totally our mistake.

We also were under the impression that the two bedrooms were separate but they are right across from one another on the loft.

The place was lovely and a great weekend getaway!

Loved the cabin. It is definitely a very private location with trails to hike and a pond right on the property. We had a wonderful time and the views were stunning. The kitchen was just right for our needs and we grilled several times. Well maintained and clean, and we would definitely want to come back again.

Thanks for checking in with us. We absolutely loved our stay. The cabin was fantastic, as was the property. The only thing we missed was Wi-Fi. It was nice to get away from things, but when the day was done we found that we wanted our creature comforts. But overall we're very happy with our stay and would recommend it to anyone. The check-in/out process was also extremely easy!

We were blown away by the views and could’ve sat out on the porch all day long! The road in was alittle more rustic than we were anticipating, a few overgrown branches made friends with the side of our vehicle, but it is to be expected with such an intimate location. The cabin was full of rustic charm and so inviting. The hot tub was marvelous especially on a crisp evening, just some slight debris in the water. The check-in process was different from what we are used to, alittle annoying to have to drive out of the way to pick up the keys, but manageable. We were very pleased with our little slice of heaven for the weekend, hands down the best view in Brown County!!

Everything about this place exceeded my expectations, but mostly importantly, you can’t beat this location. I even hesitate to write a review because I want to go back, and this cabin is always booked up. I can’t recommend this place enough!

We loved every minute staying here. Many times throughout our stay we would look at each other and express gratefulness for the magnificent view. The only thing that would make it better would be a comfy king size bed but our dogs had little legs and couldn't make the climb upstairs without us carrying them so we mostly stayed on the pull out couch - which made for an amazing morning time, waking up to that view. We will be back!

This place has a breathtaking view! The cabin is so cute, and it had everything we needed.! We enjoyed our stay so much, and it was a perfect way to decompress after dropping our daughter off at college! We hope to stay here again soon, and would go back tomorrow if we could!

Great cabin! Secluded - perfect for social-distancing. Super-clean and had everything we needed for an amazing stay. We brought all our food and cooked all our meals at the cabin. Spent our days hiking in Brown County State Park and relaxing in the hot tub. Gorgeous views!!
