Property Details

Perched atop the highest point of Locust Lane, we bring you Artist Lane Cottage, where at the turn of the century many artists in the town of Nashville called this lane home. Artist Lane Cottage, in particular, was once home to artist Will Vawter.

Cathedral ceilings, original layout of the studio, and located in the heart of the village of Nashville makes this cottage the ideal getaway for those looking to vacation with all the comforts this quaint little town has to offer. Whether you bring your pet and let him in thru the doggy door or take your special someone on a bike ride with the 2 provided beach cruisers, there will probably be more activities available than you will have time for.

Let’s step inside and show you everything Artist Lane Cottage has to offer.

Artist Lane Cottage is a 2 bedroom 1 bath vacation home with many of the original features of the home. The kitchen laid out in all bright white invites you in as the sun rises thru the beautiful large windows throughout the space. A dishwasher, microwave, gas stove, and a washer and dryer are provided for your comfort. A gas grill also is on site for the grill master within you.

Artist Lane Cottage awaits your stay in the heart of downtown Nashville.

There is a $75 fee per pet for our pet-friendly properties.

My parents enjoyed their stay. The house was old, but had nice furniture and was well kept and clean.

This was a prime location for anyone who wants to explore Nashville. I loved waking up to the sunshine streaming through the vintage windows and drinking coffee while gazing at the hills in the distance.
Airbnb Review #629624138402504307 #153276 by Review from Airbnb Guest #153276 05/24/2022
My mother and I enjoyed our time away in Nashville, staying at Artist Lane Cottage. Our hosts were quickly responsive to my pre-arrival questions/concerns/requests. It was also easy to call if a road-bump came up and receive help promptly while we were there. (Like me somehow not remembering to hit the unlock sign on the door pad & wondering why the door pad that worked for me earlier was no longer allowing me entrance!)

Part of the reason I chose Artist Lane Cottage was because of the overall ‘calm’ feeling I got from the pics. It’s not over decorated with ‘stuff’ everywhere.

There were plenty of shops and boutiques within easy walking distance! Returning home to a calm quiet cottage in the evening was perfect.

It’s just the right size for a couple or two singles. A couple and a single could make it work if the couple feels good about a full sized bed and the single feels good about the only (small but cute) bathroom being located in their room!
Airbnb Review #622429858538286647 #151652 by Review from Airbnb Guest #151652 05/09/2022
What a beautiful place! The home's layout, hot tub, plentiful towels and blankets, and comfortable beds made our stay enjoyable. We had difficulty checking in due to the way the information in their text was messaged. This was our first time ever experiencing that—yet, once we were finally able to reach the management company, the issue was quickly resolved.
Great! by Laura 05/03/2022
Great girls weekend get away at The Artist Cottage! Very clean and quaint. Will definitely stay again!

Airbnb Review #610806931934993689 #149492 by Review from Airbnb Guest #149492 04/23/2022
We had a great stay, only 2 nights, but that was all the time we had. We enjoyed Nashville's shopping and restaurants, but our focus was a quiet getaway, and this cottage was perfect. Loved the book that was "about us". It was cool to see the pictures and read the story of this cottage and what was done to make it what it has become. The evenings were awesome, time in the hot tub, a movie with the fireplace adding the perfect touch. The place was very clean and well stocked, not a single issue. The windows allowed a nice breeze while sleeping and one of the nights there was a brief shower that woke me with the sound of rain on the tin roof. It was so relaxing.
Thank you for sharing your place, we loved it.

We loved our experience! by Nicole 04/21/2022
My mom, sister, and I rented a home from Moondance right in Brown County. We loved our experience! The location was super convenient, the house was charming and very clean, & the hot tub was wonderful. The whole experience was easy and enjoyable. My mom had a wonderful birthday celebration! Thank you for the great visit!

This was our second time renting this place . Great home with lots of history and great location; a 3 minute walk to the restaurants and shops, and 10-20 minute drive to hiking.

Artist’s Lane Cottage was a perfect get away. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping and breweries/wineries. The feel of the cottage was peaceful. Great place to unplug and relax. Would stay there again.
Airbnb Review #589821236199634386 #147221 by Review from Airbnb Guest #147221 04/06/2022
My mom and I stayed in the cottage and we were delighted with the original hardware in the home. It just reminded us of the house my mom grew up in.
We walked into town several times. The only place we needed to drive was when we went to the state park.

Airbnb Review #571666989438667562 #143345 by Review from Airbnb Guest #143345 02/28/2022
We really liked the vintage vibe and coziness of the cottage a lot. The location was weird in the middle of the street but it’s a good weird. It’s not a busy street, but you do feel close to the neighbors and passers by on all sides. The living room is so nice with the high ceiling and big window. We loved hanging out there after our days out.

This rental is quaint and clean and right in town. The only downfall is the only bathroom is located in the smaller of the two bedrooms. Other than that it was perfect for us. Even has a small screened-in porch where you can sit to enjoy a little nature no matter what the weather is like.

The rental is very clean. We loved being able to walk to town every day. Loved the screen porch for relaxing in the evening. We had a small issue with the front door and someone was there to assist within 1/2 hour. When the gal that came out determined she couldn’t correct the problem, a repairman was there immediately. All the people who assisted were very nice.

50th wedding anniversary by Geri 08/24/2021
We spent a few days at Artist Lane Cabin celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. The cabin was spacious, comfy, clean, and well-stocked, and was located within walking distance of downtown Nashville. We made good use of the gas grill on the patio, and appreciated that there was an extra propane tank available as well. A great place to relax and decompress!

It was a very peaceful weekend. It was very close to town yet far enough away you didn't hear the loudness of the night. I would strongly suggest for people to stay here for relaxing weekend in Brown County.

Lovely cottage in the middle of Nashville, IN by Victor 04/04/2021

Enjoyed our getaway at this charming cottage, located a short walk from the shops and restaurants in Nashville. We appreciated the opportunity to have our dog with us--the small fenced yard was really convenient. We also liked having some outdoor space to hang out in--just wished the weather had been a bit better and we would have used it more! The cottage is spacious and furnished with lovely antiques and comfy couches. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking. As noted by others, the only drawback to using both bedrooms is that the bathroom is located inside the smaller bedroom. This would be a fine place for a couple or small family.

My wife and I enjoyed staying here. It was very cozy and we loved how the place let in a lot of natural light during the day. You won’t regret staying here!
New Review by Polly 11/15/2019
Artist Lane was very clean, charming, quiet and was in a fantastic location at the top of the hill overlooking the town and in walking distance to everything. We had a great moms get-away being able to just leave our car and walk into town for dinner. It was also nice to have a DVD player to watch movies in the evening, and we had everything in the kitchen we needed. The fireplace is just decorative, but the entire cottage was super cute and had lots of character. The only bathroom is very nicely finished with a standup shower but is through one of the two bedrooms, so just be aware in case that matters to whoever is staying in that bedroom. Check-in and check-out were a breeze, and we would stay there again. We had a great stay!

We had a wonderful time! by Cheryl 09/20/2019
You can expect everything to be easy and stress-free, from check-in to check out. The cottage is full of history! Make sure to check out the table books. This place is so clean and has everything you need. It’s so quiet and tranquil. Downtown is within walking distance. Can’t wait to come back. 5 stars from me!!
This is a beautiful property in a great location. by Marika 09/02/2019
This is a beautiful property in a great location. Moondance was responsive and the house was spotless upon our arrival. All of the interesting shops and restaurants of Nashville are within a short walk away and yet within a 15 min drive, you can access hiking and biking trails that will transport you into a remote wilderness environment. We loved it, our two dogs gave it 8 paws up and we're all looking forward to being back!

We loved all the natural light in the home - the huge windows are stunning. It was great to get to know the history of the home and see pictures of its renovation.
This is a charming cottage within walking distance of the shopping district. by Lee 06/27/2019
Beds are comfortable, and the whole space is well-kept and a delight. We especially enjoyed the screened-in patio, and we would stay here again without hesitation. One thing to know: There is only one bathroom, and it is in the second bedroom. This was not a problem for us. It was just my husband and me who stayed, so we didn't have to worry about disturbing a guest if we needed to use the bathroom during the night. The front window is huge, and it is so much fun to sit in front of it. We saw deer. The hosts have special touches such as a book that talks about the history of the house and information about what to do in the area. The kitchen was spotless and in perfect working order. There is a very convenient counter between the stove and fridge which is a perfect place to put whatever stuff you bring from home -- although since the kitchen is well-stocked, you won't need much!The house rules are clear and simple, which we really appreciated. Some hosts leave a "what to do" that's about as long as reading WAR AND PEACE! Not here. Just Leave the cottage as you found it, take out garbage, wash and put away any dishes (there is a dishwasher), and leave your used bedding on the floor. EASY! The neighborhood is quiet and relaxing. Even though you are close to shopping, it doesn't feel like it. This really is the perfect place to stay if you visit Nashville, Indiana. Enjoy!
Thank you for giving us a cozy, comfortable cabin to stay in for our trip! by The Yelton's 06/25/2019
Thank you for giving us a cozy, comfortable cabin to stay in for our trip! It embodies everything wonderful about the original Nashville! The artistry & history is so charming.
P.S. The big window is the perfect place to watch a storm roll through!
Very clean, quiet cottage. by Thomas 06/14/2019
It is an older home so some things are a little primitive but everything is very nice. We liked the little fence around the home, we didn't have to worry about our dog slipping out on the road! Very convenient to town, just a short walk. Parking is terrible downtown, so being able to walk is a big plus. There are books about the cottage and the artist of Nashville, very interesting.
This was one of my favorite places to stay. by Kathy 05/27/2019
This was one of my favorite places to stay. The place was nicely decorated, has a great restoration history, is very clean, is central to everything we wanted to do, and the amenities were great. The best is that they allow you to bring your dog, have a fenced in yard, and has great places to walk with your dog. I would highly recommend and look forward to going again!
The cottage was adorable! by Michelle 05/19/2019
The cottage was adorable! Very clean and everything you could need was there! The short walk into town was wonderful!
This was a great property in a wonderful location! by Jen 09/25/2018
This was a great property in a wonderful location! The home is up a hill a couple blocks back from all of Nashville’s shopping and dining. It was nice to walk to everything. Check-in was very easy and the home was extremely clean. We were very happy with choosing this for our vacation!
This cottage is cozy, comfy and charming! by Cathy 09/10/2018
This cottage is cozy, comfy and charming! The cottage has been updated but still has retained it's original charm. The location is wonderful! Walking distance to downtown Nashville yet still very quiet and peaceful. Also exceptionally clean and Eric even left snacks and treats for us. The side screened in porch was a special treat to relax and enjoy morning coffee. I would definitely stay at this cottage again!
We would definitely stay here again! by Tara Copp 08/28/2018
We have used Moondance a few times and they have been great. A year ago we stayed in a cabin and there were some issues but we were upgraded to another cabin quickly. This year we stayed at Artist Lane and it was a cute little home with some history to it. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. If you stay here, the house is on a dead end road but it’s in the center of the road so we missed it after driving by several times. We would definitely stay here again.

Moondance Vacation Rentals will automatically charge the balance due to the original card on file 7 days prior to the check in date. Reservations made within 7 days of the check in date will be paid in full at the time the reservation is made. Special arrangements can be made if paying by cashier’s check or cash but the entire balance must be received 10 days before the check in date.
