Deer Dance Log Cabin
2 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms Cabin in Nashville

Property Details

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 IU Campus, is 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 fixin's for s’mores!

We hope that Deer Dance Log Cabin can be a place that 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.

There is a $75 fee per pet for our pet-friendly properties.
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 and you should not have any problems.

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.

We absolutely loved the cabin! The check in process was so easy. We have stayed in Nashville the last few years, and honestly this has been our best stay! We loved the hot tub and it was a short easy drive into town. We will definitely try and book this cabin again!

Definitely recommend Deer Dance Cabin! by Jacky 07/25/2022
My partner and I enjoyed our stay here. It was a great way to getaway from the big city. Loved the scenery and the quietness. Definitely recommend the Deer Dance Cabin!!
Airbnb Review #673907018588031169 #161515 by Review from Airbnb Guest #161515 07/18/2022
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!
Airbnb Review #670277046284439812 #160690 by Review from Airbnb Guest #160690 07/14/2022
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 great retreat for a weekend or week long getaway! We had great communication prior to and during our stay. The cabin was stocked with nearly everything we needed in the kitchen and had many games for indoor and outdoor. Great location to town and the porch is so relaxing! Thank you for a fabulous stay!

Peaceful cabin by Julie B 05/26/2022
The cabin was located in a quiet wooded area with plenty of privacy. The feeling of the place was very welcoming and comfortable. Would highly recommend.
Airbnb Review #632614852217335067 #153214 by Review from Airbnb Guest #153214 05/22/2022
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.
Airbnb Review #627559207447779643 #152269 by Review from Airbnb Guest #152269 05/16/2022
This cabin was so cozy and beautiful! The woods surrounding are stunning and we spent a lot of time relaxing on the porch swing and in the hot tub. It’s also such a short drive from downtown Nashville! It was perfect and we would definitely stay there again.
Very nice cabin by Edwin D 05/13/2022

Very clean!
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)

Airbnb Review #599216515637074514 #147383 by Review from Airbnb Guest #147383 04/06/2022
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!

Great little place to get away. Hot tub is a bonus. Pool table is fun. Screened in porch a bonus. Would recommend this place to others.
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.

Did not disappoint by Shannon 03/19/2022
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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

We enjoyed the hot tub & fireplace. Our kids enjoyed the games. We hope to come again.
