Property Details

The Wayside Cottage is a charming Cape Cod-style vacation home on five acres. Relaxing is easier than ever with an expansive backyard, a large covered porch, a wraparound deck, a hot tub, and a fire pit.

On one level, you'll find the living room, kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms (both with queen-size beds), and one full bathroom. In addition, two twin beds, plenty of play space (toys and games included!), and a gate at the top of the stairs make the loft an excellent place for kids.

It takes just 10 minutes to get to the Wayside Cottage from Nashville. It's easy to get here, there, and everywhere. Less than five minutes away are Bill Monroe Music Park and Brown County Dragway; the entertainment options are endless. Want to enjoy a day on the lake? Lake Lemon is less than 10 miles away, so bring your boat over; there is plenty of room to park it at the cottage in the circular drive.

While The Wayside Cottage may not have internet, the cell coverage is excellent!

Guest Reviews

Girl's trip by Brittany 07/16/2023
We had such a great time staying at this cozy cottage! It was so peaceful, and the neighbor's ducks were a huge hit! The short drive to downtown Nashville was so convenient, and whenever we had a question, the host quickly got back to us!
Will stay again by Kim 06/30/2023
Beautiful property, peaceful, quiet and secluded (besides one neighbor). We never heard any noise other than the occasional farm animal, which kept us completely entertained...because we spent 90% of our on the amazing deck. We will definitely recommend the Wayside Cottage! Thank you!
Anniversary by Andrew 06/12/2023
Really enjoyed our stay at this location. It was a nice little home not to far from Nashville, IN. Would come back for sure.
Great place! by Dan 06/04/2023
Awesome quite house with everything you need. Needed something close and a lot of room for trucks and trailers for the the race track. 3 min drive! Thank you
Anniversary weekend by Kathy 05/29/2023
We had a wonderful relaxing stay here. We usually travel to Florida for our anniversary but wanted to stay closer to home. Our biggest need was to be out of the city or town but close enough to get to it easily. And mostly wanted to be out in the country. We got everything we wanted. Thank you for making it a great weekend for us.
Wayside Cottage was wonderful by Cheryl 05/21/2023
The house was wonderful, great location. We loved the deck.

Would stay again!! by Brittni 04/29/2023
It was very clean despite being in the middle of updates/renovations. The location was beautiful and very convenient for getting to downtown Nashville. Would 100% stay again.
Cute Cottage by Kim 04/09/2023

Cute property. Very clean.
Perfect girls' weekend by Jane 03/12/2023
VERY cute and cozy as well as clean. Had all the desired amenities in the kitchen and bath. 5-ish minute drive to Nashville which is where we spent much of our time. Hot tub was clean and worked great. Looks like a brand new deck so it would be awesome for a warmer weather visit too. Plenty of parking. Very clear and timely communication from management company.
Getaway by Jay 02/20/2023

Decompression Weekend by David 02/12/2023
This property is a gem! Secluded from the hustle and bustle of town, yet a quick drive to the heart of Nashville to enjoy whatever your hearts desires may be! Would we return in the future? Absolutely without a doubt!!!
Fantastic Property by Evan R 01/02/2023

Coziest house in IN by Amy 12/31/2022

Fabulous by Allison 10/19/2022
Great stay for a get away experience from home. Beautiful scenery around the property and in between driving locations.
IU family weekend visit by Colleen 09/18/2022
We booked for the weekend and literally only slept there (spent all our time on campus). It’s a charming cottage just outside of Nashville, IN which is the most adorable artist colony / cute town. The cottage was decorated well and clean
Wayside Cottage by Abbi 07/31/2022
We rented the Wayside Cottage for a bachelorette trip and it was the perfect little house!
Beautiful old cottage! by Kyle 07/14/2022
Beautiful old cottage with amazing views of farmland, ponds and woods. My wife and I had a great time at this spot. We spent most of our time in the hot tub. Owners were easy to communicate with. We would stay again.
Weekend getaway by Mackenzie 04/24/2022
I am from brown county and it was really nice to be able to stay somewhere different. Right outside of town the house was very conveniently located. Very beautiful property. I would stay again.
Country Living by Gabrielle 04/18/2022
Perfect family getaway!!
Perfect Spring Weekend by Angela 03/16/2022
We planned a last minute spring trip and this place was the perfect spot! Besides being a great value it was the perfect place to relax and catch up with friends after a day of hiking.

long getaway by Michael 03/14/2022
We really enjoyed our stay. It's only a 5 or 6 minute drive into Nashville
Great getaway by Lyndsey 03/08/2022
Great property to get away for the weekend. Enjoyed the quietness and simplicity. Owners did great job of providing everything we needed for cooking. Loved having kids toys with a gated loft!
Great cottage by Nicole 02/20/2022
Lovely little cottage just as described. The owners were easy to work with and we enjoyed our stay!
Very nice property by Buster 01/12/2022
Quaint little place. We enjoyed the hot tub and claw foot bathtub/shower combo. The living room furniture was comfy and inviting. The loft is a great space for the kiddos if you bring them along. The kitchen is well stocked. The coffee pot is extremely slow, though I'm used to using single serving coffee makers, so that may be why it seemed slow to me. There is not internet, but we did have decent mobile coverage with AT&T. We are football fans and we're saddened that ESPN was not available on Dish Network at the cabin, however there are plenty of channels to watch if you get rained or snowed in. Something we found humerus was that we passed "Paradise" every time we left or came back to the cabin. If you stay here, you'll see what we mean! Overall, I highly recommend this cabin if you don't require internet or multiple bathrooms.
Just what was needed by Ryan 01/09/2022
As advertised. Great escape from the new normal chaos. Rental is so comfortable and well appointed; calming and relaxing. Loved the hot tub in the rain at night! Highly recommend!

Weekend Stay by Michael 01/03/2022
Decided to stay near Nashville, IN for a weekend. This location was great, just off the main road but far enough away that we got the secluded feeling that we were looking for. I would stay again and recommend this place to friends.
Airbnb Review #743074715 #102243 by Review from Airbnb Guest #102243 03/28/2021
Place was very cute, charming and spacious. We immediately loved the outside area and options for seating spots on the beautiful deck. Lots of space to hangout. It was thoughtful to find firewood for us ready to go. Inside it was very charming, perfect for brown county get away. Another thank you for ice in the freezer! Plenty of kitchen tools.
Airbnb Review #742110859 #102041 by Review from Airbnb Guest #102041 03/25/2021
We enjoyed our girls trip and the quietness of being in the country and only 15 minutes from Nashville. The hot tub was fantastic and there was plenty of gathering spaces. The 1 and only drawback for us was the 1 bathroom. With 5 ladies we had to manage our time in the bathroom. But otherwise it was perfect. The fire pit was inviting but we couldn’t use it due to the wind.
Airbnb Review #739113005 #101479 by Review from Airbnb Guest #101479 03/22/2021
Eric's place is super cozy, great for a weekend away! Close to the state parks for hiking and the city of Nashville is a short ride away. We had a great time.

Large enough space for families.
Quiet country cottage on a nice piece of property. by Drew 11/30/2020
A little outside of Nashville, but the drive into town is along the ridge of a hill with beautiful views. Well worth the price for a peaceful getaway.
Great place and very good location. by Nick 11/13/2020
Great place and very good location. Definitely would stay there again.
My husband and I had a fantastic time. by Hannah 11/08/2020
My husband and I had a fantastic time. The location is so nice for a relaxing getaway but close enough to all the sights. The house was clean and so spacious!
The cabin was perfect for our girlfriend's weekend! by Marsha 10/12/2020
The cabin was perfect for our girlfriend's weekend! It was cozy and at the same time plenty of room to spread out and relax. The porch has lots of seating and was just as cozy and inviting as the inside. We loved the location, rural but not so secluded as to make the trips to town difficult.
We thoroughly loved the Wayside Cottage and the peace and quiet that came with the beautiful home. by Ray 06/09/2020
We thoroughly loved the Wayside Cottage and the peace and quiet that came with the beautiful home. It was just the perfect place for us to relax and reconnect as a married couple. We would definitely come back and also bring our kids to enjoy the large backyard.
The cottage was lovely. by Pamela 06/06/2020
The cottage was lovely. It was nice and cozy. Our kids loved the upstairs loft. We enjoyed sitting on the swing watching a bird couple build their nest and listening to all the nature sounds.
Wonderful stay! by Catherine 12/31/2019
The house was fantastic and very comfortable.
Thank you for a great place to share! by Maria 12/29/2019

Great house to stay at. by Described perfectly 05/25/2019
Very clean home and very private country home. Very clean, especially the hot tub.
Very clean & neat by Caryl 04/23/2019
The layout was nice, will definitely book again. Access to town was good. Loved the porch. We will be back to enjoy this summer.
Very cute cottage! We loved our stay here! by Courtlynd 03/16/2019
We enjoyed reading about the history of the cottage. We like it had a fenced in yard to have the dog run in. The patio lights were a nice touch as well as the bikes.
The back deck was great with very scenic views of the neighboring pond! by Lynn 03/11/2019
The Wayside Cottage was a great place to stay for a quick weekend visit to Nashville, In. It was about a 10 minute drive to town. The Cottage was very nicely decorated and had all necessities available. The back deck was great with very scenic views of the neighboring pond. This was our first visit to Brown County and we will be back!!
We loved this place and will be coming back some time soon! by Brett 11/14/2018
Eric's place is just what my wife and I were looking for to get away from the city and enjoy Nashville IN. It is a beautiful house located on a remote, quiet country road, but is just an easy ten minute drive into downtown Nashville. The hosts are extra helpful and provide plenty of info on what to do and where to go, and also nice touches like Christmas decorations and a snack basket! We were also happy with the cleanliness of the home and the amenities were on point with the listing (including a very clean hot tub!). And we have already planned a return trip with the kids, because the upstairs is perfect for two young ones. Can't wait to return!
We loved our weekend stay at Wayside Cottage! by Lynn 09/24/2018
We loved our weekend stay at Wayside Cottage! It was decorated very nicely with wonderful little touches. It was very clean, spacious, comfortable and well appointed with everything we needed. My daughter loved the kids loft - very cute and fun! We loved the hot tub and the fire pit and the wonderful porch swing! Plenty of wonderful hiking around and a number of fun restaurants a short drive away. We really enjoyed our stay and our hosts provided lots of great info about surrounding activities as well as easy instructions to get in and how to operate everything in the cottage. We will defiantly come back and stay again!
We loved our stay at this beautiful cottage! by Rebecca 09/19/2018
We loved our stay at this beautiful cottage. We wanted to be near the hiking of Brown County, but not in the woods so we could keep the bugs off our kids. This was a perfect spot with the backdrop of woods which gave a very private feel, but was in the open as well. The house itself is very kid friendly and well decorated. It was very well maintained.
