Property Details

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.

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!

If going during winter months be prepared as the cabin is located at the top of a ‘mountain’ and is pretty scary when the road is snow covered. It was a very nice clean cabin secluded with an amazing view. We loved it!!

Really great cabin that was much more beautiful than expected--pictures don't really do it justice. The view was amazing and the cabin itself was architecturally impressive (loved all the windows). Also was incredibly warm in the cabin with outside temps around freezing, so the large windows must be very high quality as they exhibited hardly any radiating cold right next to them. Great place and hope to be back in warmer months as well!

Pictures don't do justice, way more beautiful in person. Loves the trail on the property, the wood stove and the breathing view. Will definitely be back

This is a lovely home for a couple or small group. The property is spectacular, and the loop trail is a welcome amenity. We had a great time—what a beautiful cabin October 2020

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!!

My wife, our puppies and I had an amazing weekend at the cabin. The cabin is gorgeous and the view is even more amazing. We had the opportunity to watch an amazing thunderstorm roll in and enjoyed an amazing weekend of relaxing in the hot tub, hiking and enjoying the hidden gem of Nashville, IN. We can’t wait to escape from everyday life again at your beautiful homestead!

What a wonderful stay. You will not regret purchasing a stay here. The view in the pictures does no justice, you have to see it in person and experience the serenity yourself. One of my favorite cabins! We will be back. 05/13/2020

the check in process was good, no issues there, we had an amazing time, I work in healthcare and needed a break from all of the stay at home and it was my husbands bday weekend so I decided to get away for a little bit, but days after I reserved the cabin my husband lost his younger brother and 6 days later lost his dad to covid. We used the weekend to destress and prepare for the next couple of weeks, the cabin was absolutely beautiful and loved the fact it was so secluded the pics don't even do it justice

Very secluded and beautiful. Amazing view and very cozy c Cabin Loved and place and we hope to return in the future April 2020

This place was exactly what we needed. Close enough to town that we had access to everything we needed, but far enough away that we could unwind in the peace and quiet. The cabin was neat and tidy, perfect size, and had everything we needed for the ideal weekend getaway. Would definitely recommend! 04/07/2020

Loved the place and was nice to get away. The hot tub was a little dirtier than expected so that was a bummer. We were looking forward to getting in it.
