Property Details

Grandma Barnes Cabin is located just 3-1/2 miles from Nashville, Indiana and close to Bean Blossom. This private hideaway has all the comforts of a modern home while retaining its Brown County aura of rusticity. The cabin has a bright, comfortable kitchen with dining area. The large screened-in porch provides ample opportunity for bird and deer watching or just relaxing. A backyard patio, barbeque grill and picnic table complete this romantic picture.

The original cabin, built in 1949, sits on a four-acre wooded hillside. We added an 1859 cabin to the original to create a delightful and secluded one bedroom, one bath retreat. This cabin accommodates up to four guests with one queen-sized bed and an inflatable queen mattress. Your pet is also welcome here.

This property has 1 Queen(s), 1 Airbed - Queen(s).

Guest Reviews

Grandma Barnes Cabin was wonderful! by Leslie 02/23/2020
It was the perfect space for my husband and me to relax by the fire, read a good book, and enjoy the peace. It was so nice to be so close to downtown Nashville and explore the cute shops and restaurants and also to Brown County where we can hike. If you do go in the colder months, I would suggest bringing some extra blankets and maybe some slippers to stay a little bit warmer, it can get pretty cold at night. Definitely would stay again and wish we could have stayed longer!
Beautiful and private setting on the outskirts of town! by Sarah 02/21/2020
Grandma Barnes cabin has been well preserved over the years. Very quaint and cozy. All the necessary amenities available for an accommodating and comfortable stay. The fireplace and firewood were an added bonus during the cold winter evenings. This cabin was exactly what I needed. It just felt like home!
Nashville is my favorite place to visit and this cabin is our favorite place to stay for a peaceful and relaxing weekend getaway. by Todd 09/29/2019

If you’re looking for some peace and quiet in a convenient location, this is it! by Kyle & Caitlin 09/22/2019
This place is filled with character and unique decor. We really enjoyed using the fire pit and sitting outside on the patio to sip our morning coffee. Our dog enjoyed finally getting to go on a vacation with us as well!
Thank you for this gem. by Larry & Debbie 07/19/2019
As soon as we walked in the door, I knew it was a special place that will be hard to leave. We hope to return again.
There is nothing like this place. by The Barry's 07/12/2019
The beauty, the peace, the CALM that grows inside you the longer you stay. This was our second year celebrating my husband's birthday at Grandma Barnes cabin. Which is really just an excuse to getaway. We've been anticipating our stay pretty much since we drove away last year. It's everything we remembered and more.
We saw several deer and a family of turkeys walking through the trees on the sound side of the house. The little turkeys were so cute!
We had a peaceful, relaxing retreat. by John 06/27/2019
Good job on restoration and work on this cabin. We had all kinds of plans to do outside things but found we didn't want to leave! We really enjoyed the porch. Thanks - it is completely charming!
We had a great time! The property is awesome. by Andrew 06/23/2019
We had a great time at the Cabin. It was a little more rustic than I expected but that was exactly what I wanted with this place so it all worked out.
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful restored cabin! by The Helms family 06/16/2019
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful restored cabin! It was a great weekend retreat w/family! We really enjoyed watching the storm roll through from the screened-in porch while playing board games!
Perfect location that had the privacy and peacefulness of the country but still very close to the downtown area and state park. by Chelsea 06/05/2019
Perfect location that had the privacy and peacefulness of the country but still very close to the downtown area and state park. The rustic cabin was adorable and plenty of space for my husband and I plus our 2 dogs.
What a beautiful, peaceful setting! by Toney 05/29/2019
Love the option of the outdoor fireplace &/or grill. The screened porch is wonderful. Landscaping is lovely.
Thank you for offering this lovingly restored woodland retreat. by The Wade's 05/19/2019
Thank you for offering this lovingly restored woodland retreat. While we were here, a mother wren was nesting in the basket outside the door. We enjoyed hearing her birdsong every day from the deck rail and the whippoorwill calling at night.
Thank you for another weekend of quiet and peace by John & Vivian 05/12/2019
I enjoyed birdwatching from the deck and porch. Bluebirds, Carolina wren, 4 kins of woodpeckers, black-capped chickadee, turtled titmouse, crows and more. We have visited here before and will always return. Thank you for keeping it so nice and inviting.
Grandma Barnes Cabin is one of our favorite getaway spots. by Vivian & John 05/12/2019
The cabin is beautifully decorated and quiet and comfortable. It's not far from town but very secluded. We always feel so welcome when we arrive. I did some bird watching and enjoyed watching the birds visit the nests on the property.
I cooked several meals in the beautiful kitchen and we played games at the table and listened to music. As long as this cabin is available to rent we will always return. We have made many great memories here❤️
Thank you for another wonderful weekend
Beautiful! by Bradford 04/18/2019
Beautiful! Restored masterfully!
The cabin was a delight and we really enjoyed our stay by Sarah 03/05/2019
The cabin is perfect for a woodsy getaway. Our dog was able to freely romp around and we even caught a glimpse of a group of wild turkeys running through the woods. Even though we were immersed in the calmness of the woods, we were close enough to make trips into town. We had a fire, made great dinners and woke up early to listen to wildlife. We will be visiting again.
The secluded cabin is rustic in appearance but modern and comfortable inside. by Chris Pipe 02/04/2019
Our stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Grandma Barnes Cabin was wonderful. The secluded cabin is rustic in appearance but modern and comfortable inside. The unique decorations make you feel like you've stepped back to the 1800's, but with all the modern conveniences. It's also very clean inside and all the appliances, plumbing, and heating are well maintained and functional. The bed mattress felt like it was fairly new and we slept quite well with plenty of extra blankets supplied, though the cabin stayed cozy warm even in the subzero temps of the 2019 polar vortex!
We felt very welcome and at home! by Cari Stanley 12/18/2018
We spent our annual anniversary get-away at Grandma Barnes' Cabin and have to say Moondance Vacation Rentals is top-notch! Easy and simple check-in instructions, everything was perfect, just the right level of attention. With other vacation home rentals, we have felt hovered-over, with the owners or management companies checking on us incessantly. I really appreciated their hands-off approach. We felt very welcome and at home. The cabin was nothing but outstanding. We will definitely use Moondance again in the future. Thanks!
It was a beautiful and peaceful home! by Carri 10/04/2018
It was a beautiful and peaceful home. We really enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to visit again!
You feel like you've stepped back in time, while also being completely comfortable and pampered! by Cristina 07/24/2018
Grandma Barnes cabin is the perfect combination of rustic beauty and modern comfort. The property is remote and peaceful. The cabin is a work of art. Two cabins from different time periods (one a rebuild) that flow nicely as one house. You feel like you've stepped back in time, while also being completely comfortable and pampered. The only thing we needed during our stay was more time to be there. This is a beautiful and unique setting to unwind and reconnect with loved ones!
Everything about this place was great! by John Farthing 07/22/2018
All the amenities you need, close to Nashville but far enough away to be able to have your own privacy and unplug. Everything about this place was great- I would definitely recommend to anyone interested!
