Our ground floor gallery apartment is nestled in Yellowwood State Forest on an organic farm, b/w Nashville & Bloomington. This spacious 1BR has a private entrance & is ideal for 2 guests but can sleep up to 4 with pull-out couch in LR.
This apartment, on the ground floor of our home, is located halfway between the vibrant university town of Bloomington, Indiana and the quaint artists' village of Nashville, Indiana. The cozy, welcoming apartment is decorated with paintings from the host, Mark Blaney, on-site artist. The apartment features Mark's beautiful work, with paintings in every room.
Our home sits on a small organic farm, The Blue Farm, which raises berries, herbs, vegetables, flowers, and 140 hens, laying eggs fresh, every day. Guests will have farm fresh eggs in the fridge and other farm-to-table food depending on what's available in the garden that day. Guests can cook their own meals in the full size kitchen and dine at the kitchen table or out on the front porch.
The apartment also has a full bath, laundry facility, large bedroom and living room with a couch that has a hide-abed. Also in the living room is a TV with a DVD player and a selection of movies to choose from. The bedroom has a full size, brand new, memory foam mattress. If you need the pull out sofa bed, we have a foam topper to add to the mattress to make it more comfortable.
The front porch area has a table for dining and a porch swing to enjoy while you take in the sound of clucking hens and enjoy the sunset over the woods.
You will have your own private space. If outside, you will probably hear the clucking hens and perhaps occasional barking of our four dogs (outside, but in the back of our home). The apartment itself is pet free and is non-smoking.
At the end of our dead-end country road is access to hiking trails in beautiful Yellowwood Forest. Having lived in the area since 1985, we will happily give you information on sites and attractions and how to find your way around. We are about 20 minutes from downtown Bloomington and the IU campus and about the 25 min. from the downtown Nashville. We are 10 minutes from Yellowood Lake which has beautiful hiking trails, a serene lake and excellent bird watching. Our home is 1 1/2 miles down a winding country road. The craftsman style home sits in between two forests-- Yellowood State Forest is our backyard and Morgan Monroe State Forest is our front yard.
**Being in the middle of the woods, the occasional mouse or bug can make its way into the house. We make all efforts to keep this to an absolute minimum and in a way that protects us and the environment from toxins. Please try to keep an open mind, as an occasional meeting of Mother Nature's critters is a small price to pay for her absolute beauty in this pristine location!
