That is the one word to describe a stay at Robinwood Inn! I booked Maybelle’s cabin (the most private) for our 30th wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been better.
Literally every moment spent here was a joy- in fact, we’d planned to go into Nashville one day for the cute shops and artistic history, and hike the last day at the gorgeous state park and we wound up not setting foot off the property- it was just TOO relaxing and wonderful!
Tyra and Lance clearly put much love and care into making a incredible place to unwind. Such a deft mix of modern and vintage, done with a light hand- just enough ‘decoration’ to make it charming without screaming at you from every corner. YOU WILL FIND NO DUCK DECOYS OR CUTE FISHING SIGNS HERE! (a theme that seems to dominate most cabin rentals ;)
-Hot Tub! We’d never done it in winter and clearly hot tubs were made for winter nights! Fantastic, super clean, and hot!
-Animals! We are animal lovers and hanging out with their big handsome pup, Romeo, who visits for treats, and the chickens and miniature horses who live behind Maybelle’s were so fun- we fed the horses apples, and watch them meander about their day. And there were visits from a beautiful herd of deer, tons of birds- cardinals, bluejays, juncos, etc.
-Thoughtful touches! Our cabin had a record player, and tons of records form the 40’s- 80’s. We had a terrific time listening to the songs we listened to when we were first dating... a completely delightful surprise!
-Modern wonders! Satellite radio -Big band music was playing when we walked in, and it seemed so perfect that when we weren't playing records we were listening to this: it seemed to go perfectly with Maybelles, which was built in the 30’s. Sparkling jacuzzi tub, with adorable reading light over it. Big, pure white, quality beds! Well stocked kitchen! Cool vintage pieces! Lovely landscaping- even in winter!
-The Innkeepers- We wanted to meet the people who had worked so hard on this terrific place, and we did, and they are awesome. But we could have gone our entire stay without talking to them, if we had wanted to be that private. They arrange everything so that your involvement is your choice- another thoughtful touch!
Clearly, I can not say enough good things about Robinwood Inn. We have already decided to make this an annual trip if we can for our anniversary, and to return in milder weather. Brown County is beautiful and has lots to enjoy... maybe next time w"
