“Great stay for large group”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2015

What an awesome place to stay! Clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable for a large group of people. There are king size beds in the bedrooms and futons as well if needed. The owners supplied notes everywhere to give directions to help out. (directions for TV, air hockey table, walking trails, etc) Very accommodating! I would make no recommendations to change anything, it was perfect! Just look for the STAR when finding the driveway on the road because the address is a little hard to see. The star theme continued through out the whole house and walking trails. Couldn't have asked for a better place for a girls weekend.

Owner's reply: Thank you! I'm happy you enjoyed your stay!

“Absolutely wonderful!”

Reviewed 27 Dec 2011

We have found our location for the yearly Christmas reunion of the Reed family! The "cabin" was beautifully decorated; the procedure for checking in and out could not have been simpler; and the location was easy to access and so close to Nashville! Two of our family members are extremely particular, so we were pleased when they found the accomodations more than acceptable! We fixed each of our meals at the cabin and found the kitchen to be adequately stocked with all the essential appliances, silverware, dishes, etc. We also enjoyed the fireplaces and the large table - right for meals as well as playing games. The porch was beautiful and, although we didn't spend time on it, were impressed with the chairs and tables that would make it a perfect spot for a cup of coffee and a good book! Again, we are so pleased we "found" this property and look forward to continuing our holiday tradition there.

Owner's reply: Cathie, Thank you for your great review. Dave and I are always happy when we know our guest had a good time and was happy with their accommodations. I hope you and your guests return soon. Peggy

“The Best Cabin”

We from Columbus, Ohio and go to Brown County often for a getaway. This is by far the best cabin we have ever stayed at in Brown County. If we ever build a log home this one is it. Thanks The Stewarts

As we drove up the long winding driveway and noticed the cabin for the first time WOW. When we went inside Wow, words cannot describe how beautiful this place is. Thanks for the perfect weeks vacation. Next year we will bring the rest of the family here for our reunion. PS, we understand why you call this place Rustic Elegance now.

The amenities were unmatched - This is the most beautiful place we've ever been. We cannot express how perfect this place is. Everything is built on the highest quality - nothing was spared from fixtures to the bedding, this place was magnificent - we will be back next year for sure.

Your cabin Rustic Elegance is remarkable, we were amazed at how spacious and relaxing it was. It was a great place for our management retreat. We got a lot of work done and shared many experiences. We saw 2 beautiful deer in the side yard. We plan to use this cabin for our management retreats in the future.

Being from Indy, we've made several trips to Nashville and the Brown County State Park, but staying at this cabin made the trip very relaxing and nice to have the family together. The wood even on the ceilings, is beautiful. It's a very unique design. We'll be back

Fantastic Cabin! We enjoyed the coziness & the amenities. It was the perfect stop as we make our way along the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail.

Everyone in my family absolutely loved the cabin. It was so clean and neat, and trust me cleanliness means a lot! My family kept commenting on how spic and span it was! We had a great time and there was plenty of room for all of us. We loved the big kitchen and made use of both sinks and both coffee pots! The coffee pot idea is great because some of us like strong coffee and some of us like it really weak.

We had the best time, and still can't get over how spotless the place was! Thanks, Peggy, we had a super time. (Our daughter was the valdictorian of the Kelley School of Business this year.) We were so proud of her, and your cabin gave us such a nice backdrop in which to celebrate with cake and goodies and our whole family.

We had our Cousins Reunion at Rustic Elegance this past weekend and everyone fell in love with the place! Gorgeous venue and perfect for us! Stay with Brown County Getaways and you'll have the best vacation ever!

‎8/23/11 Let me echo what Nan said about our cousin reunion - Rustic Elegance is beautiful inside and out, comfortable, well-equipped, and I can't wait to return whether with my cousins once again, or with my own little family of daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren. They'll love hiking through the woods, playing pool, and enjoying the hot-tub. Thanks, Peggy. It was wonderful and just perfect for our first cousin reunion.
