Property Details

You won’t believe you are only 8 minutes from Downtown Nashville when you pull up the driveway to this beautiful retreat. Super secluded on 5 wooded acres, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath log cabin is as equally quaint for a romantic getaway as it is fun for a weekend with your family or close friends.

If you want to get outside and meander through Nashville or check out the state park, just 12 minutes away, there is much to do. Bloomington, and the Indiana University campus, are under 30 minutes on a scenic drive via IN 45, so your location is situated perfectly for campus visits of any reason. If the weather calls for a little less outdoor adventure, you can sit under the wraparound porch and read a book on the swing, dine in the screened-in porch after preparing a meal in the fully furnished kitchen, play a game, shoot some pool, get cozy in front of the gas fireplace, watch TV or gather with those you are with and take time to catch up on life’s journeys.

There is plenty of space and area for everyone to be able to stretch out and recharge. No matter what your day brings, you will enjoy being able to wind down grilling on the barbeque, lounging in the hot tub, and sitting around the fire pit at night. Just don’t forget to bring all the fixings for s’mores!

We hope that Deer Dance Log Cabin can be a place where you will want to make special memories year after year. There are a lot of updates happening now and planned for the near future. Internet is now available, but it is totally ok if you disconnect and don’t use it!

In addition to the king and queen beds, there is also a full-sized futon.

Deer Dance Log Cabin has a fairly steep drive. It is helpful if you have a front-wheel or 4-wheel drive vehicle. When going up the hill, maintain a steady speed; you should not have any problems.

PET-FRIENDLY PROPERTY: There is a $75 fee per pet. Moondance Vacation Homes proudly donates a portion to the Brown County Humane Society when you bring your pet and pay your pet fee.

All gas fireplaces are seasonal and available for use from October 1st - April 1st.

We came to celebrate my husband’s birthday here and had a great time! This was our son’s first time at a cabin, and he loved it! We enjoyed the hot tub, playing pool, and board games most. It was very beautiful, relaxing, and felt secluded.

Peaceful setting in a beautiful place near Brown County State Park. Screened in porch, wrap around porch with swing and hot tub were a bonus. Nearby Nashville offered a quaint town with culture, arts, restaurants and shopping.

Very nice place. Close to town !
Absolutely wonderful experience by Kaylyn 07/30/2023
My Husband and I stayed at the Deer Dance Cabin and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The cabin was spotless and all amenities were as advertised. I recommend renting through Moon Dance and will definitely be a repeat renter in the future.

Airbnb Review #934850100185854424 #208886 by Review from Airbnb Guest #208886 07/25/2023
Overall we loved this place and felt so comfortable coming back to it after a day of hiking. We loved having both a screened in porch option, which is where we had all our meals and also loved the porch swing and rocking chairs on huge outside porch, which is where we meditated. Sitting out in the early evening with the wonderful birds singing will always be remembered.

Thanks for providing a rustic, cozy, roomy space in these beautiful woods.

Airbnb Review #918869003666080668 #203350 by Review from Airbnb Guest #203350 06/21/2023
We had a wonderful stay at this cabin!! It was our first trip to Brown County and we will definitely be back. The cabin is exactly as described/pictured. It was comfortable, beautifully decorated, and peaceful. Eric left very clear instructions for the hot tub as well as helpful recommendations for the area.

We spent our days in the state park biking, hiking, and swimming at the pool. After an active day the hot tub was something to look forward to.

I really can’t recommend this cabin enough!

Airbnb Review #908771267853060814 #201557 by Review from Airbnb Guest #201557 06/11/2023
We had a wonderful honeymoon in a beautiful location! We loved the peaceful surroundings and enjoyed listening to the birds and turkeys while rocking on the front porch. The proximity to Nashville and the Brown Count State Park allowed us to shop, dine and hike all within a short distance from the cabin. We loved it so much, we asked to stay an additional night but the cabin was already booked. We look forward to staying there again!
Airbnb Review #902905206868493929 #200041 by Review from Airbnb Guest #200041 05/30/2023
Eric’s properties are always squeaky clean and nicely arranged. Loved, loved, loved the hot tub on a starry night! Fire pit area was perfect, but did wish for a gas grill on the front deck. Anything you wanted in the kitchen right down to a crockpot and sharp knives. Beds were clean and comfortable.

Peaceful girls weekend get away. The cabin was private and had everything we needed.
Airbnb Review #891339186288961708 #198572 by Review from Airbnb Guest #198572 05/17/2023
Communicating and booking with Eric was as easy and professional as it gets! He was available and responsive to every question I asked!
The home was beautiful and secluded. It was a short drive from town when you wanted to feel like you were "somewhere", and an easy drive back to the house where you quickly felt like you were in the "wilderness nowhere" again!
The house was clean, comfortable, and well stocked. We loved our stay and can't wait to come back!
Our new annual vacay spot! by Kelli 05/15/2023
We enjoyed a relaxing long weekend at Deer Dance Inn! The property was beautiful and secluded, the house was comfortable and stocked with everything we needed!
The coffee bar was the perfect place to start our day and wander out onto the private rear deck for a soak in the hot tub.
It was a fantastic find, being pet friendly we were able to bring our dogs and they enjoyed it just as much!
The location was perfect, a short drive from town to visit all the local shops and just a few minutes farther to take our dogs hiking at the Brown County State Park!
We have decided to make this our annual vacation spot!

Perfect relaxing and peaceful getaway from the daily grind. The cabin had everything needed to make us feel at home. We definitely want to go back!
Fabulously relaxing by Lisa 04/05/2023
We went there to relax after the loss of my mother. It was very wonderful having a place to get away and relax and grieve. The place was very clean and well kept. We loved the view and have talked about coming back for every season. Thank you

Amazing location and cabin by Cara 03/26/2023
Stayed here for a little R&R over the weekend. The location was great! The cabin was exactly as presented. The main bed was so comfy. And the amenities I’m this place are crazy. We had everything we needed and even things we didn’t even think we needed but did. I will Definitely be staying at this property again.

Very private and secluded location. Lots of amenities like charcoal for the grill and a stocked coffee bar, there was even a picnic basket with plates and utensils! Only about a 10 minute drive to Nashville, overall a great location!
Airbnb Review #852229769423062686 #192517 by Review from Airbnb Guest #192517 03/22/2023
Deer Dance Cabin was by far one of the best Airbnb’s I’ve stayed at. It was a clean, beautiful, spacious cabin, that was located on a private and peaceful property. & the amenities were excellent! Eric was super welcoming and helpful with our stay. Everything about this stay exceeded our expectations!
Airbnb Review #850695118915571016 #192182 by Review from Airbnb Guest #192182 03/20/2023
Beautiful area just outside of Nashville, IN.
Deer dance is a perfect spot to do some bird watching, enjoy fresh air, or cozy up next the fireplace.

10/10 would rent again.

We loved our stay at Deer Dance! The property is about a 5 minute drive from downtown Nashville but provides the seclusion and privacy for a perfect getaway. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, sitting by the fireplace, and playing pool. Plus, the coffee bar was amazing! We will definitely be back!

Airbnb Review #819644811098168466 #187695 by Review from Airbnb Guest #187695 02/04/2023
Was looking for a quiet place to half vacation half work somewhere else other than home and this was perfect! The cabin was lovely and had amenities exactly as promised. I couldn’t get enough of the hot tub throughout the week. Close to all the good stuff in Nashville but far enough away that it’s all peace and quiet. Would definitely chose to stay here or another related property again!

We had a fantastic stay! Everything was clean, cozy, and comfortable. Had everything we needed and then some. The hot tub and fireplace were so relaxing. Eric did a great job of communicating! We had all of our information for check-in and it was very easy to follow. Highly recommend!
Perfect spot for a little R & R by Darci 01/22/2023
The location was beautiful, and cabin was even better than expected! We were pleased to see that there must've been a new addition of the deck on the back where the hot tub is located, that made getting in and out very easy! From previous reviews the drive up to the cabin sounded daunting but we had no problem! Thank you for everything!

If you need some peace and quiet, and some hot tub and fire in your life - this is the cabin! Great place and will be back!

This is the second time I’ve rented from Moondance Rentals, and I don’t know that I’ll ever choose another place if I’m in Brown County! They’re great!
Airbnb Review #798605091879997416 #183779 by Review from Airbnb Guest #183779 01/07/2023
I had a few difficulties the night I arrived - couldn't get the fireplace started (Instructions were incorrect) and couldn't get on wi-fi (password sign was hidden & I couldn't find it) Could not make phone calls or send texts unless I stood in the driveway-very frustrating.
The good part - Eric was very responsive & helped by sending someone out the next morning to help with anything I needed. The cabin is really lovely in many ways. Nice size kitchen, comfortable beds and several recliners for relaxing, especially by the fire. I loved the front porch swing, the hot tub and dining table for doing puzzles. I would definitely return for another visit.
Thanks again Eric for dealing with my initial anxiety - you and your staff were great.
Airbnb Review #779766144664893295 #182813 by Review from Airbnb Guest #182813 12/23/2022
We had a family emergency, and the hosts let us give the reservation to our friends. Glad it didn’t go to waste, and our friends reported that it was a great house—and that the descriptions of the very steep hill of the road to get to it are not exaggerated.
Airbnb Review #785591573947019112 #182681 by Review from Airbnb Guest #182681 12/20/2022
The cabin was very lovely and surrounded by beautiful forests. I did have some problems with “going for walks”, not the best area for that! Our pup would have loved to do more exploring. The hot tub was fabulous and all the amenities were very convenient. The cleaning/maintenance folks were very helpful when we couldn’t get the fireplace to work. We had a very restful stay at Deer Dance Cabin!
Warm and welcoming by Sara 11/23/2022
We were surprised and delighted to be greeted by Christmas decorations when we arrived at the cabin! It felt very festive and cheery, especially since we arrived after dark. The speed of the wifi was amazing - super impressive since we felt like we were way out in the woods. The location was great too - both for exploring Bloomington as well as hiking in the woods and parks with our two dogs. The cabin is stocked with everything you need, and I especially appreciated the kitchen. Eric's responses to any questions were super fast and friendly. We'd definitely considered staying here again - or another Moondance property! Thank you!

Deer Dance was wonderful! We were fully aware of the driveway and brought 4 wheel drive vehicles but it was definitely necessary especially because it snowed! ❄️ wonderful cabin in the hills.

Great Fall getaway house by Tamala 10/09/2022
This house was great - not too far from downtown Nashville. Pet friendly. Clean. Nicely decorated. Great porch. Plenty of parking. Good layout.
Property is represented very well! by Shirley 09/27/2022
Stayed at Deer Dance cabin in September 2022. The photos represented the property very well and the amenities were excellent. The drive way was steep and was almost problematic for a front wheel drive vehicle but the agency did recommend AWD or 4WD before booking. The entire reservation process with Eric was very efficient and Amber, CSR was very helpful and prompt when I needed assistance. I would also recommend taking a Firestick or DISH Anywhere as the DISH package provided did not include basic national or local channels. Heavenly, peaceful and perfect!
Honeymoon getaway by Zachary 09/15/2022
This cabin is absolutely amazing! My wife and I are both introverts and were looking to get away from busy adult life in the city for awhile. Staying here was like having complete solitude except for our very few ventures into town. The amenities were great (everything you could need besides food was provided).
Airbnb Review #713737566271747842 #169617 by Review from Airbnb Guest #169617 09/11/2022
We had a great stay at cabin, played pool and enjoyed coffee in the screened porch. Beds were very comfortable. In the two bedrooms. This rental is probably best for 4 adults as the futon was not very comfortable for my brother and his wife, who chose to go to a hotel the second night, ( might not be an issue for a child) .
Nice Labor Day retreat by Julie C 09/05/2022
Loved the woods surrounding the cabin and the wonderful porch, screened porch and jacuzzi. We stayed out doors for almost the entire visit! Thanks for the amazing stay.

This place was amazing! The driveway was a steep gravel so it can be a little bit difficult getting up if you don’t have the proper car but we were able to make it and just stayed up there on the rainy day of our weekend. The cabin was in great condition and had everything we needed for a rainy day! We really enjoyed staying here and would love to again!

Great experience at the cabin. Nice mix of remote location and close enough to town. The property is on a steep hill so aside from the main driveway area and back fire pit location, it’s not the most usable. We enjoyed it thoroughly nonetheless.
Enjoyed my stay by Jillian 07/06/2022
I was visiting brown county for a family event and to escape the fireworks for Fourth of July because my dog is very frightened by the noise. Although we did hear some fireworks I still found the cabin to be a lovely place to pass the time. I didn’t even go into town much because it was so hot outside. I slept great, everything was functioning and I am sure I will return!

Deer dance is a wonderful get away from normal life, while still being close enough to enjoy downtown Nashville. The driveway can be a little bit of a doozy, especially during rain.

Amazing! by Jayden 04/28/2022
Stayed at Deer Dance Cabin this week. This property is amazing. It was extremely clean and the pictures just don’t do it justice. Water pressure and heat was amazing. Heating and cooling was excellent. Deck and screened in porch came in very handy. Great scenery. Hot tub was very well maintained. Overall 6 stars. Will definitely be staying again. Planning a trip to the deer dance in July as I type this.
P.S-don’t let the driveway scare you. Steady gas and momentum and it’s easy as pie. (I drive a fwd Toyota sedan)

We loved our stay at Deer Dance! Plenty of space for the 4 of us. Our family loved playing board games, rocking on the front porch with the amazing view and laughing while relaxing under the stars in the spa. The owners cover every comfort of home along with special touches to make the guest truly feel like they are on a holiday. We loved how quick the access was to downtown Nashville. For a fun family activity close by, look up Grandpa Jeff's Trail Rides. We will definitely come back!

Excellent time by John 03/21/2022
My wife, bother in law, mother in law, dog and granddaughter stayed for three days at the Deer Dance Cabin. This is the second year in a row we stayed at one of Moondance's rentals. We had a very excellent time and the cabin was second to none. Needless to say we will be staying again next year when the school my wife works at is on Spring Break!

Thank you for being such a great host.

Deer Dance Cabin did not disappoint. All was as described and we booked through Airbnb. Proximity to town and Brown County State Park was lovely and the accommodations super comfortable.

Book this cabin. The location is close to town and brown county state park. It is cozy and clean with a nice open area if you bring a dog. The hot tub was an added bonus and the king bed super comfortable. The driveway is very steep so FWD or AWD recommended.

This is such a cute and cozy cabin!!!! I love how nestled in the woods it is while being so close to the adorable little town with all the pleasant shops! We so much enjoyed our stay and being able to relax and reconnect. The cabin was adorably decorated while having an amazing layout. I loved how big the tub was in the master suite! Plus how easy the fireplace was to turn on 🙂 Would love to come back in the spring or fall!
Airbnb Review #509361082832905644 #134395 by Review from Airbnb Guest #134395 12/04/2021
Very relaxing and loved that I could bring my entire family. (Me, my boyfriend, and our Bernedoodle) we went hiking and had a blast enjoying the peaceful cabin and fireplace.
Thank you so much for decorating and making it feel cozy for the holidays. We can’t wait to book again!
Great Thanksgiving away! by Tyler 11/28/2021
We had 4 adults and 2 small dogs stay around Thanksgiving, and this little cabin in the woods was the perfect getaway spot! Just the right size for our group, we really enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and especially appreciated that they had decorated for Christmas! We enjoyed a lot of time in front of the gas fireplace, had a relaxing evening in the hot tub, and were able to utilize the full kitchen without any problems. No cell service in the house (AT&T), but since our phones have wifi calling and there was decent wifi on the property, it wasn't too much of an issue. Super convenient to the village of Nashville, and we enjoyed running a few miles on the surrounding country roads - very pretty! Thanks for a great stay!

We enjoyed a wonderful girls weekend at Deer Dance. Nice cabin and great location. Loved all the outdoor spots to sit and relax, especially the hot tub. The well stocked coffee bar was an added bonus. Would stay again.
Airbnb Review #478935571096461177 #130617 by Review from Airbnb Guest #130617 10/22/2021
The pictures are very accurate and you will love this cozy retreat!
We loved relaxing in the hot tub after a day of traveling and a then again after hiking at the park. We loved the wrap around porch and a decent book selection and the screened in porch area where we basically ate every meal. The bed on the main floor was very comfortable and cozy!
We thoroughly enjoyed our (much too short!) stay! I didn’t want to leave!

It is close to downtown Nashville and a grocery store if you need anything.
The hill to get up to the cabin from the road is very steep - glad we had our Jeep with 4-wheel drive!

We hope to stay again! Highly recommend!
Loved this cabin by Anne 10/09/2021
We loved this cabin in the heart of Brown County! It was the perfect getaway of peace and quiet!
We had a wonderful week in October at this cabin just a few miles from downtown Nashville! We will be back!

Awesome cabin in beautiful Brown County. Spent a lot of hours on the screened in porch. Nashville has a lot to offer. Brown County State Park was also great. The cabin is very comfortable and cozy. Just what we needed after an entire week of driving to relax and kick back.
Girls' getaway by Lynn 09/29/2021
Very beautiful and quiet place to get away from everything for a few days!
Easy and convenient getaway from Indy suburbs by Alice 08/27/2021
Quick option for a 3 day vacation or plenty of activities for a week or more. This cabin has something for all ages. Accessible for limited mobility. Pet friendly! So many good places to eat that it is hard to choose and you have everything you need to cook at the cabin if you want to stay in. Ideal if you need a break and want to avoid travel and crowds.

Great getaway
Nice place by Jeff 08/09/2021
Nice cabin and quiet secluded location. Worked very well for our needs in visiting family and friends in the area. Close to Nashville if we needed anything yet a remote feel. Wi-Fi, Dish TV, screen porch, hot tub, pool table, grill area and more so there is something for everyone.
Family getaway by Ron 08/05/2021
Enjoyed our stay. Relaxing and peaceful. Close proximity to what we wanted to do.
Airbnb Review #418719369585008754 #119310 by Review from Airbnb Guest #119310 08/03/2021
100% recommend the cabin as a great way to get away! There was very limited cell phone service which is to be expected in the woods. The wifi was great though and kept our family in touch. The screened in porch, pool table, fire pit, porch swing, and hot tub were the highlights for the family. It was the perfect size for all 4 of us and the games, pool table and hot tub kept my 9 and 11 year old entertained when we were not exploring the woods. Overall the cabin is clean, well maintained and the descriptions/photos are accurate. We loved our time there and if a getaway is what you are looking for then this will be perfect for you as well.

We had a great start to our marriage spending the weekend in your cozy cabin. Thanks for the wonderful memories!

Airbnb Review #768102552 #110465 by Review from Airbnb Guest #110465 06/08/2021
Wonderful cabin for a getaway. Clean, and the porch was heavenly. We spent most of our time on the porch, or in the hot tub. There's a nice little camp grill there too, just bring some charcoal. The driveway is quite steep! Our Hondas handled it ok, just something to be prepared for. It was a little tough to get up after a lot of rain. Altogether, these folks really know how to set a place up for guests though, I hope to go back some day!
Beautiful stay by Molly 06/06/2021
Tucked away just outside of downtown Nashville. A great weekend getaway! Hope to be back.
Airbnb Review #763081747 #109153 by Review from Airbnb Guest #109153 05/28/2021
A wonderful location for relaxing in seclusion. The cabin was clean and perfect for our needs. The wrap around porch was an amazing feature, with plenty of spots to sit and look out across the trees. A portion of the porch was screened in, though we didn't have an issue with bugs in any area. We also loved the hot tub, and think you will too. Definitely recommend you schedule a stay.
Birthday weekend by Ashley 05/16/2021
The property had everything we needed. Communication was great with the owner. Definitely would come back.
Finding peace is easy at Deer Dance by Viktoria 05/13/2021
The property is pristine and peaceful with the opportunity to experience deep solitude while becoming ONE with the stillness of Deer Dance. If reflection is not your thing, know that the cabin is well equipped, tastefully furnished and located near to the parks and Nashville.
Beautiful cabin by Carla 05/10/2021
Such a beautiful cabin and quiet location! We came for our sons graduation from IU - we enjoyed ourselves so much! Thank you! We hope to be able to visit soon
Wonderful place for relaxing by Tiffany 05/06/2021
Literally had everything. All you needed was yourself and food items. After everything that went on this year a family vacation was absolutely needed and this was the perfect place to unwind and have family time. Will book it again in the future.

We so thoroughly enjoyed our time at Deer Dance that we were sad to leave. The cabin offered a quiet escape, a place to connect, and a space that was warm and inviting. We would definitely recommend it!
Airbnb Review #737218439 #99854 by Review from Airbnb Guest #99854 03/08/2021
Excellent Stay! The location is very private and secluded, but not remote. If you looked very hard you could see a neighboring house from the front porch, but otherwise you feel all alone which is often just what is needed. The log cabin was very nice and provided everything. The hot tub was especially nice after a long day of walking and was well situated at the rear of the home under the stars. I highly recommend this location.

Deer Dance was beautiful (and there weren't even any leaves on the trees when we went!) Unfortunately, we were only there for two nights. We will stay longer next time! We've stayed at the Brown Co cabins and camped in Brown Co. State Park and staying at Deer Dance was a lovely change. The big swing on the porch, the hot tub, the fireplace, and the pool table were all favorites during our stay. We felt like the cabin was cleaned well before our stay and were impressed by the number of kitchen amenities. Next time we'll bring stuff to put in the crockpot so we can have dinner ready when we get home from hiking all day! We're excited to return in the summer when we can enjoy the warmer temperatures!

Great cabin by Vicky 01/21/2021
This cabin was very cozy. It was well stocked with everything you need. Special area set up just to make coffee.. Master bedroom even has a recliner. Hot tub is set up on a new deck. I would definitely stay here again. Close to town, but still very private.
If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing secluded retreat this is your place. by Lindsay 10/02/2020
All the amenities you will need and the decor, fireplace, hot tub, and screened-in porch were wonderful. Very spacious and comfortable. A great place for a romantic getaway, bring the whole family, girls retreat, or couples retreat. I would highly recommend.

Look forward to our stay here next year! by Ken & Melissa 01/22/2020
We love it here in the winter, despite the general lack of snow. The fireplace, board games, and general sense of relaxation and "getting away" makes this trip our favorite throughout the year.
The cabin is beautiful! by The Jones' 01/05/2020
We enjoyed the hot tub & fireplace. Our kids enjoyed the games. We hope to come again.
