When I visit southern Indiana to attend the Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival I make it a point to lodge at Hickory Shades. The rooms are clean and spacious. A refrigerator, stove and laundry facilities are provided for guests. Costs are quite reasonable. Located approx. 7 miles from Nashville, IN.

Very reasonable prices - cheaper than anywhere in Bloomington or Nashville. Immaculately clean. Friendly... More
