Brown County Bikers

We had a wonderful stay at Oak Haven Bed & Breakfast. Sharon has a beautiful home. She was a great host and made us an awesome breakfast. She provided drinks, snacks and maps of the town of Nashville. She also has trails on her property. We went to ride the mountain bike trails in Brown County. Sharon also suggested Hobnob Corner as a place to eat and it was wonderful. We would definitely stay here again.

Loved it!

Perfect Get Asay

We found Oak Haven to be the perfect place to go for a relaxing getaway. Breakfast was delicious each day, and I loved the screened porch where I could sit and read. The rooms are comfy and inviting with Keurigs for coffee or tea. There is a handy common fridge guests can use if needed. This far exceeded what I had imagined.Sharon is a wonderful host. If ever in the area again, we will stay here!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for letting us know how we are doing! We always appreciate hearing from our guests.

Get Place for a Getaway!

If you are looking for a peaceful setting to relax, read, and enjoy nature, Oak Haven is the place to go! Sharon and her family are great hosts! Breakfast is different each day and delicious! The bed was comfy, the room was great, and amenities such as soft drinks, water, snacks, a Keurig in my room, and other things made me feel right at home. The screened porch and deck were the perfect place to sit and read and occasionally nod off! When I am back in the area, Oak Haven is where I will stay again! Thanks, Sharon for a lovely stay!

We loved our stay!

We absolutely LOVED our stay! A very cozy bed & breakfast. The house was very nice and clean. The only problem we encountered was the room- it felt like the air conditioning was totally shut off. We had two fans going the whole time to try and keep the room cool. In the end of July, it is HOT! Other than that, the owners were very nice and knowledgeable. I'd recommend this place to anyone, just make sure to bring your fan!

Innkeeper Response
So sorry you encountered a problem with the air conditioning. At any time during your stay we hope to hear from you that you are having a problem so we can solve it, even if it means telling us in the middle of the night- we are here to make you comfortable. We provide fans in the rooms of course, but they aren't meant to be your source of cooling off as we do have air conditioning. Thank you for your kind words and we will make sure all our guests know they can communicate with us at any time!

Anniversary weekend in Brown County at Oak Haven B&B

Beautiful B&B in the midst of a beautiful wooded setting - very peaceful and quiet for our anniversary weekend. Great host and wonderful amenities!

What a wonderful retreat

My husband and I stayed this weekend. The hospitality was superb. The house is secluded and charming. It was everything one could want in a honeymoon. Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay!

We really enjoyed our stay. The german pancakes were awesome, the 2nd mornings breakfast of scrambled eggs was also very good, but was maybe a bit simpler than I was hoping for. Either way it was really good, the innkeeper was super friendly and great at pointing us toward different directions for hiking that we wouldn't have known of otherwise.

So nice to find a getaway that doesn’t disappoint.

Second visit and it was as delightful as the first several years ago.

Signature Dish

Dutch Pancake; Summer Pudding; Homemade Cinnamon Rolls; Farm fresh Omelets
Served most often with baked peaches on top, this buttery dish comes out of the oven puffed and crispy. Seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg and topped with powdered sugar, the aroma promises breakfast is about to be served. Guests most often comment: "It's like having pie for breakfast."
