Fern Hollow cottage sits alongside a pretty little creek, and has a deck from which to enjoy the rustic beauty of Brown County, Indiana. Inside, a pretty color scheme of blues and greens creates a restful atmosphere as you settle into a more relaxed country lifestyle. Furnished with cool antiques and vintage finds, Fern Hollow will appeal to those who appreciate old stuff, yet Fern Hollow is not stuffy. Well-decorated and outfitted with all the amenities needed for your stay makes this place cozy and inviting. Linens for kitchen, bed, & bath, plus cooking utensils and dinnerware will make you feel right at home. A large living room with a gas fireplace, DirecTV service, Internet, and even a piano will help you make some great memories.
Guests will appreciate the spacious kitchen with an adjoining dining room, and all the necessary equipment such as linens, dishes, cookware, detergent, pantry staples like flour, sugar, and coffee. A starter supply of paper goods is also provided, then you re-stock as needed while you’re here.
Comfortable beds will sooth your weary bones after exploring our area, one fun-filled day at a time. Both the master bedroom and the second bedroom have comfy queen-size beds. Each bedroom is equipped with a window AC, and electric baseboard heat. The bathrooms are located near the bedrooms, and linens for bed and bath are provided.
The bedrooms, bathrooms, living room, and sunroom are all on the same level...but you step up one step to go into the kitchen & dining room, and back down one step to go to the laundry room, and to go outside to the back deck. The stairway that is pictured in the living room goes only to a locked attic space, which is not available to guests.
The cute little sunroom is the perfect spot for enjoying a cup of tea or coffee and a good book, and to watch for songbirds just outside the big window. We understand that you’ll want to keep your socks smelling sweet, so our laundry room is complete with a washer, dryer, and a drying rack, as well as an iron & ironing board.
Consider visiting Brown County State Park, where you are only 10 minutes from the park's beautiful views along winding roads, as well as trails for horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking. Yellowwood State Forest is also nearby, and has plenty of woods and a lake to explore (think kayaking and fishing), or you can make the 15-minute drive to Lake Lemon, or the 30-minute drive to Lake Monroe...both big enough for boating and fishing activities.
The hectic schedule of everyday life can take its toll, and Fern Hollow is a perfect place to let your mind and body relax. Hanging out by the fireplace, reading, playing a board game, or sitting out on the deck are simple pleasures you'll appreciate while at Fern Hollow. A 10-minute drive will put you in downtown Nashville, where you can browse to your heart's content all 200+ shops, a micro-brewery, several craft and art galleries, and numerous restaurants found there.
