A professionally run operation.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Tudie's Cottage and just loved our experience at the Cornerstone Inn. Each morning I looked forward to the wonderful breakfasts and each afternoon to the snacks & desserts. There is always coffee and tea available. One afternoon there was left over fresh fruit. The employees are friendly and helpful. In the main building on the 2nd floor, there is a patio with lemonade available and several rocking chairs for you to enjoy sitting outside. You can stroll around the downtown with its many shops or make the short drive to the Brown County State Park. I would definitely return to the Cornerstone Inn.

Wonderful place to get away!

The staff at Cornerstone is second to none! Comfortable beds, great breakfast & snacks (nearly sinful) and the location is excellent for those who love being in the action. We have stayed in several of the rooms and can't say that any of them are bad in any way.

Our fall get-a-way

We always enjoy going to the Cornerstone Inn in the fall, we go and shop, go to the park and just enjoy the atmosphere. It is so relaxing. At home it is always hustle bustle and we don't get to kick back and relax.

Great as always

Cornerstone Inn never disappoints. Everything is just as you expect with each stay. We will continue to stay at Cornerstone Inn every time we visit Nashville Indiana.

Cornerstone Inn is amazing!

Cornerstone Inn is our favorite place to stay. The staff are so friendly and go above and beyond to make you feel right at home. The Christian atmosphere is so comforting. The homemade breakfast and snacks are always delicious. We come here every year for our anniversary and this was our first time staying in one of the cottages. It was simply amazing. It's the perfect place for a relaxing night away. We are looking forward to our next stay at Cornerstone Inn. James & Angela Barnett

Great Room.

Really liked the room we stayed in. We had a party of 3 and stayed in the Cane Ridge 3 room. Very spacious and nice de'cor. My mother rated it a 10! This was our first time to stay at Cornerstone Inn. We would highly recommend it to others. Actually, we have been telling others about it already.

A Refreshing Retreat

Such an adorable and comfortable room! Quiet, restful and beauty all in one! The staff were so friendly and yet not intrusive. The food was out of this world delicious! And you cannot beat the location can make it a quiet getaway or shop your socks off all within walking distance. I had an outstanding weekend and will make this an annual adventure.

A great get-away!

My third visit

This was third visit and I was not disappointed. I have stayed in a different room each time and they all have been great.

Wonderful stay

My husband and I took a mini-honeymoon after our wedding to Cornerstone. The room we stayed in was just perfect, especially the cozy fireplace, large bathroom, and comfy bed. The breakfast the next morning was delicious, too. We look forward to staying again!
