Fun stay for girls' weekend

4.2 on August 10, 2014

Great place to stay within walking distance of everything the quaint village of Nashville has to offer! Very clean rooms, great breakfast buffet! TV was a little small but I guess we weren't there for the TV anyway.

Delightfully Quaint Stopover B&B

3.8 on June 16, 2014

I stayed at the Artists Colony Inn & Restaurant as a half-way point on my trip home following a family wedding. I was delighted to find such a unique community full of gift and artisan shops. I ate at the restaurant and the prices were very reasonable and the food was homey. The room was rather stark, but it was clean and functional. My only complaint was that I was next door to guests with pre-teens who were in and out their door a hundred times which was not peaceful. Really nice area for those looking for a day of shopping crafty type stores.

One of our favorite places

4.2 on May 27, 2014

This is our favorite place to stay when visiting Brown County. You are in the center of everything and dining is just a walk downstairs. The rooms are always very clean. The staff is very helpful and courteous. The breakfast buffet is always good and the opportunity to use your voucher to order from the menu is a good deal. We have never been disappointed with our stay.

Nice size good location

3.4 on May 26, 2014

Our room was 202, furnished with a four poster bed and a twin bed in an alcove. We had a small sitting area with table and chairs and coffee maker. A small balcony with bench seat for two looking out over Van Buren St. The rooms are decorated with early american reproductions with wide plank flooring. The rooms have keys so you must remember to lock your door on exiting. They serve a buffet breakfast (included) or $6 toward menu items. It was nice. The one drawback to the room was that there was no furniture that you could unpack to, nothing with drawers. If I am staying somewhere longer than one night I like to unpack.

Memorial Day weekend

4.6 on May 25, 2014

Had a pleasant time; truly enjoyed being in town close to shopping and restaurants.

Cozy and quaint

4.4 on April 21, 2014

My husband and I stayed here Easter weekend. We found it quaint, clean, convenient to shopping, dancing and hiking. We will definitely be back, maybe making this an Easter tradition!

Week Get Away

4.0 on March 26, 2014

My husband and I have been to nashville numerous times. This stay was the first time at the Artist Colony Inn. So glad we did, we really enjoyed the cleanliness, character and ambiance of the place. The kindness of all the staff, (always going the extra mile to make your stay special). This will definitely be our special place to stay at in nashville from now on , felt so spoiled .

Girls' Weekend

4.0 on March 09, 2014

We spent a weekend in March at Artists Colony Inn. There were seven of us, so we used a room with a queen and bunk beds, another room with two queens, and the largest suite, which provided a place for all of us to gather to talk, eat, and play games. This worked really well. It would be nice if the suite had a larger refrigerator, but that was a minor inconvenience. The breakfast was excellent, and Artists Colony is close to all the shops and wineries. We'll be back.

Our Anniversary Destination

4.4 on January 28, 2014

We've stayed at the Artist Colony Inn for many of our anniversary get-aways. Since our anniversary is in January we get to take advantage of their great winter specials. The rooms are clean and quiet, and we love the simplicity of the decor. The breakfast buffet is yummy and is usually included in the specials. The staff has always been warm and helpful. Nashville offers several choices for lodging, but ours will always be the Artist Colony Inn!

New Year's Eve at Artists Colony Inn

4.6 on January 01, 2014

Dec. 31, 2013, was our first stay at the Artists Colony Inn and it was was delightful! Our room was lovely, clean, quiet, and very comfortable. The old wide to extra-wide floorboards were a treat, as were the simple four-poster beds with appropriate quilts and the quaint, yet very functional, touches of baskets, crocks, peg hangers, etc. The mattress was quite comfortable, which is really important to me. Dinner was good and the breakfast buffet was very good. The staff was excellent--friendly and efficient. Highly recommend!
