Such a relaxing place to go!

Kind friends paid for us to stay at this beautiful B&B for a few days to help us get away and relax. We stayed in the Master Suite and it was very clean and comfortable. There was a sitting room in the suite that was so nice to get up and read in. Our hostess was extremely welcoming and kind and she also made delicious breakfast each morning. She was very flexible with arrival and breakfast times. The property offered a couple fun walking trails through the woods which was the perfect ending to our trip. It was also a short drive from the shops in Nashville. We would recommend this lovely place to anyone who wants to take some time to get away and take it easy.

Quiet, Peaceful, and Relaxing

5 on February 19, 2018

My husband I stayed at Oak Haven for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. It was a very peaceful and relaxing weekend. Sharon, the hostess, was wonderful and friendly. She made us feel right at home. The house is beautiful with large windows throughout so you can enjoy the scenery no matter where you are at. The house sits way back off the road and is surrounded by woods. The property is located just a short distance from Nashville and easy to find. There is a refrigerator in the upstairs sitting area to place anything you might bring back from an outing, just leave your name on it. Sharon provides snacks and soft drinks free of charge. There are plenty of movies and games to choose from. She served us a delicious breakfast each morning. We especially liked the apple dutch pancake. We stayed in the Grandma's room which is very small but fitted our needs perfectly. We are planning on spending our anniversary here every year. Hopefully next year it will be warm enough to enjoy the hiking trails on the property.

Oak Haven was a very nice bed and breakfast. The rooms were nicely furnished, the bed was comfortable and the host was very welcoming! Breakfast was very good and it gave us the opportunity to learn more about our host and the B & B.

Wonderful, secluded setting that was an easy 4 mile drive to Nashville. Room was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. Thanks to the owner Sharon for the relaxing first time experience. We’ll refer to all our friends and be back for another visit for certain!

My wife and I celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary. I love hiking and she loves shopping. This is the place to be ! We were glad we stayed at Oak Haven. We both loved the quiet and beautiful setting. The food was great and Sharon recommended places to visit and good places to eat.

We truly enjoyed our weekend stay at this B&B. We will certainly be back when we get the opportunity. If you are looking for a small, quiet, away from the hub-bub trip, then this is the place for you! Amazing service and an even better breakfast!

Great B&B

4.8 on July 10, 2017

We found this B&B while searching for a place to stay while attending the Beanblossom Bluegrass Festival at the Bill Monroe Park. Oak Haven was the perfect place to stay -- very close to the park and the breakfasts were fantastic. We stayed 3 nights and Sharon served something different each morning AND it was all freshly homemade each morning. It is a great location and a lovely country property. Sharon has a great knowledge of the area and is very helpful. My husband and I would highly recommend this B & B for anyone looking for a nice clean, quiet place to stay in the Nashville, Indiana area.
