Artist’s Retreat Cottage
Many a Brown County artist has set up an easel in the beautiful
where Owl Creek flows past enormous old sycamore,
walnut, and hickory trees.
This is the serene setting for Artist’s Retreat Cottage, and is believed by some to be the site
where artist L. O. Griffiths painted his lovely piece entitled “Owl Creek Farm”.
The quaint 1-bedroom cottage offers guests a chance to rest and reflect on the important things in life.
Everything you need is provided…such as linens for bed, bath, and kitchen, soap and shampoo,
and even basic pantry staples like flour, sugar, and coffee. You are invited to make yourselves at home and pretend that
this is your very own private getaway.
Equipped with high speed wireless Internet and satellite TV, it’s possible to stay connected with the ‘outside world’,
but you may just choose to connect to the real outside world by foraging for hickory nuts, walnuts, buckeyes, or wildflowers.
Artist’s Retreat Cottage sits on about 25 acres of land that has been in same family since 1849, and is a beautiful spot just
2 miles from downtown Nashville.
Nicely furnished and well decorated, the cottage incorporates a number of antiques throughout, but guests’
comfort is always a priority, so a
size memory foam mattress and super soft pillows will draw you into a blissful slumber when night falls.

or in the shelter house.
A charcoal grill, horseshoes, and corn hole boards are also provided for more leisure time fun.
Last, but definitely not least, is the
1928-vintage barn just a few steps from the cottage. While the barn is normally locked for safety reasons,
it is available to rent for weddings, parties, and reunions. Outfitted with ‘tree-branch-chandeliers’,
antique tools and other accouterments, it’s a “Pinterest”-worthy venue for the perfect
