Love It!!!

My wife and I visited Nashville for our anniversary. We found the Cornerstone Inn and realized it was a great find. From the employees, to the rooms, the whole experience was phenomenal. My wife and I have decided that any trip down to Nashville, in the future, will involve the Cornerstone. What a beautiful and fantastic place to stay. The room was immaculate, the food was nice, and the people were nothing short of superb. Thanks to the staff for having us and making us feel welcome and at home. You are a special group of individuals that make this beautiful place worth coming to, over and over again. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!

Love this place we visit a few times a year

Such a great place to stay!

The Cornerstone Inn is a perfect place to stay! It's in a perfect location and easy to walk to all of the shops. I love that this place is very private, but is still a b&b. the rooms were spotless with modern amenities. The snacks and breakfast were all excellent. We will definitely be back!

Peaceful and Convenient

This inn is close to all the shops in Nashville but off the main street about a block. The owners have done an outstanding job with room decor and landscaping around all the bulidings. There is a main building and three large two- story "cottages. " The whole area gives you the feeling you are staying in a private park. This was our second stay and we loved it! The real treasure at The Cornerstone is the staff. Anyone we have ever dealt with there has been unfailingly pleasant and courteous. This will be our go-to destination whenever we come back to Brown County.

Three night stay

The Cornerstone met our expectations for price / value. The Inn was well suited for our stay, very clean, extremely quiet and clean. Staff were attentive and very willing to answer questions. The Inn is very convenient to walking Nashville and access to all area sights. We will definately stay again!

The cottages are great but the rooms in the main Inn are equally nice. The food is always good. Very relaxing atmosphere.

This is a wonderful place! The suite we stayed in (Sailor 4) was so relaxing and beautiful. Breakfast and snacks were always delicious! Loved that they were homemade and not store bought! The grounds were well kept and full of lots of flowers, gazebos and swings. Cornerstone Inn is close to all the Nashville shops and a very short drive to Brown County State Park.

The Best Inn In Nashville!

I cannot say enough good things about the Cornerstone Inn. Everything from the beautiful accommodations in the cottages, to the delicious food served three times a day, to the wonderfully helpful and kind people working at the inn, everything was PERFECT! We can't wait to go back again!
