Buffalo Nickel
1 Bedrooms 1 Bathrooms Cottage in Nashville

Property Details

Property Description

This quaint cottage was dubbed Buffalo Nickel after discovering the historical information regarding an early owner of the property.

Property Details

When the Buffalo Nickel owners remodeled the property, they discovered old copies of the Indianapolis Star Newspaper used as insulation. The age of the newspapers prompted further research of the property, and they found that one of the earliest residents was a woman whose father settled in Brown County around the turn of the century. They discovered the woman's most prized possessions were two small nickels her father made upon first settling. The woman shared this story with her local paperboy, showing him the nickels to teach a lesson about hard work. Thus, the name Buffalo Nickel was adopted.

Buffalo Nickel is located on the north end of Nashville, giving visitors a view of downtown from the 300-square-foot deck with an overhanging black locust tree. The cabin comes with a full kitchen, breakfast bar, dining area, and hot tub. In the living room, guests will find a queen sleeper sofa. The bathroom comes with a custom shower and access to the deck where guests will find the hot tub. The private bedroom also comes with a queen bed. Additionally, guests can relax in front of the two 32" televisions. Buffalo Nickel accommodates 2–4 people.

Buffalo Nickel is a cute house that was well maintained and clean.
It was in town one street off VanBuren, so it was close to everything and quiet, an easy walk to everything in town.
We would stay here again.

Perfect location if you’re exploring the park. About 10 min from either entrance.
Plenty of restaurants within walking distance.
Super clean house and good parking too.
No complaints, would book again.

This place was an amazing little tucked in place in downtown Nashville. It was super clean and very cute and unique. My husband and I will be booking other places with him in the future.

Perfect location! Walking distance from everything in Nashville and a stones throw away from the incredible state parks.
Airbnb Review #762542117 #108959 by Review from Airbnb Guest #108959 05/25/2021
This place is absolutely amazing! What a great find. It’s small and cozy, perfect location. We walked everywhere because we were so close. After hiking all day, the hot tub was incredible. Would go back again.

Airbnb Review #757112776 #107385 by Review from Airbnb Guest #107385 05/16/2021
The Buffalo Nickel was a great place for a mom/daughters girls weekend (there were 3 adults). The close proximity to EVERYTHING made our time in Nashville so fun, easy, and enjoyable. We had cool, rainy weatherand it was still wonderful! We brought a queen air mattress to give us some additional sleep space and there was plenty of room for it. When Frank Sinatra was playing on the radio when we entered the house, we knew we were going to have a great weekend. One thing to keep in mind - there isn’t wifi at the house, it’s in a nearby property. The only time we could connect was when we were on the deck. As such, there are a few basic TV stations you can access, but don’t expect to watch Netflix or other streaming channels. Bring DVDs if bad weather is predicted and you think you’ll spend a lot of time at the house. It wasn’t a problem for us, but wanted to mention it if you needed to be connected for work or other reasons. All in all, we had an AMAZING weekend and will book again in a heartbeat.
Charming and Cozy by Kelly 04/03/2021
We loved our 4 night stay at the Buffalo Nickel! The property was clean and cute, and our favorite part was that we were so close to town. The only time that we drove our car after arriving was to go into the Brown Co. park - everything else (shopping, restaurants, breweries, activities) was within walking distance. The hot tub felt great during the chilly spring evenings, too. My husband and I stayed in the bedroom and our littles (5 and 3) slept on the pullout bed in the living space. The space was just right for our family, though I think that it may have felt a bit crowded if our kids were too much older/bigger. Overall, it was a great space that allowed us to have a great trip!

Really nice little place, perfect for two people. Literally a 200 foot walk to the main street of town and no more than 1-2 block walk to anything in Nashville. Nicely decorated, with a hot tub, and the team is very responsive.

This was an amazing stay! You won't be disappointed and I would absolutely visit again. Just a short walk to downtown but felt very private. This time of year the hot tub was a total bonus.

This is such a great place to stay and enjoy Brown County! by Lindsay 10/20/2020
My husband and I enjoyed how close it is to everything! There is a really great brewery within view of this listing. The house is really cute, and the hot tub was a great place to relax. We will definitely stay here again.
Super clean and the absolute cutest. by Evan 09/27/2020
Super clean and the absolute cutest. We loved that we could just walk everywhere from the property. We also loved enjoying the hot tub while listening to a band play across the road.
Loved this little cottage! by Tiffany 09/21/2020
Loved this little cottage! Amazing location and the hot tub was so nice this time of year.
I would highly recommend this place! by Molly 06/07/2020
I would highly recommend this place! The house was perfect for our small family, cozy and comfortable with all of the necessities. Plus, the hot tub was a wonderful way to end our night once the baby was asleep. This is an excellent location, a block away from all of the shops and restaurants, but far enough away that we were not disturbed by music or window shoppers. Having a secured parking spot all weekend was an added bonus in this busy area. Would definitely book again.

Amazing little place close to everything in Nashville. by Chad 06/09/2019
My wife and I loved your place! Thanks for allowing us to celebrate our anniversary weekend at your place in Nashville.
This place far exceeded our expectations! by Martin 04/03/2019
This place far exceeded our expectations! We loved everything about this cottage. If you are planning a trip to Nashville and want to be close to everything it has to offer then this is it. You can actually set on the deck or in the hot tub and see down the main strip. the only thing that would’ve made our trip more enjoyable would’ve been some warmer weather. On our way home we were already talking about a return visit.
This place is a real gem! by Pam 09/04/2018
This place is a real gem! We originally selected it for our girls' weekend because it seemed like it would be close to downtown. Wow! We were right on point! It's a block off the main street, but still quiet. I enjoyed being able to go out on the deck in the morning for my devotions, but we could just as easily sit out there in the evening and not be disturbed. It's not even a 5-minute walk to some fantastic food options. It has all the touches of home and INCREDIBLE craftsmanship throughout. Seriously, this place is gorgeous! It's perfect for a couples getaway, too, and I can't wait to take my husband back to stay there!
The location was quiet and relaxing! by Katherine 08/07/2018
The Buffalo Nickel is a charming home just north of the heart of downtown Nashville, IN. We enjoyed the restoration to the home and the stylish decor. The location was quiet and relaxing and we had a great time!
Cute and well styled place! by Jared 07/24/2018
Great location,Cute and well styled place. Small but cozy for 2 people
Great place to enjoy all that Nashville has to offer by Mike Eddy 06/05/2018
Great place to enjoy all that Nashville has to offer. Main street is visible from the deck and a 1 minute walk to the best of Nashville Indiana. Very nice clean and stylish spot perfect for my family of 3!
Great Visit!! by Cherelle 05/14/2018
Great visit! Such a cute place and perfect location to walk anywhere on the main strip
Truly lovely stay! by Fiona 03/01/2018
Nashville is a charming town (But be prepared it closes up early even on the weekends, 10pm) The location of Buffalo Nickel is Amazing, 2 seconds walk from town. The design and comfort of the place is great, beyond expectations. Truly lovely stay.
Cozy comfort, modern, great location...with a big deck! by Michael Tosey 02/01/2018
My name is Michael. I'm always searching for the best accommodations for the money when I'm wanting to kick back in the Brown County area. And a while ago, when I found Moondance, I really scored big time. Something nice always seems to be available and their staff will do everything in their powers to make sure the right place is offered, and to make sure the entire experience is great! My experiences have been mostly with their representative named Marissa. She's top notch in my books for customer service and ease of the booking process. She recommended a great place right in downtown Nashville on my last stay during the New Years weekend, and it was perfect!! It's called the Nickle Cabin. Cozy comfort, modern, great location...with a big deck!! Plenty of parking is also available and not to mention Big Woods Pizza is practically right across the street! I highly recommend Nickle Cabin for a great stay right by the main strip in Nashville, IN. Thanks again Moondance, and Marissa...for another great stay!
