This is a cozy little hotel. It has a rustic look to everything from the old wood floors to the rooms. The rooms are pretty small compared to other hotels. I would say you should skip the breakfast, the food was cold and our waitress never came by to check on us except to take our order and to bring... More

The Inn is old and very quaint. It had almost a bed breakfast feel. The decor was primitive and very cute. The shower was nice and hot. They give a loaf of pumpkin or banana bread that is delicious! The bed was a little high and very noisy when you move in it, but fairly comfortable. Housekeeping was very friendly.... More

We ended up staying here as our reservations at Abe Martin Lodge were canceled last minute. The location is great, right in the heart of the shopping/dining district. Staff friendly. Room includes hot breakfast buffet daily (was good). The room was small (we had 4 adults), had wood floor with one tiny rug. Had a round table with 4 wooden... More

Stayed for just one night. Food is fantastic, have eaten here numerous times before staying. Rooms are quaint, ours was on the front of the house - very nice. Unfortunately the bed swooped in the middle so my husband slept on one of the twin beds in the room. Breakfast, included with room, was good and plentiful. Rooms were noisy... More

We stayed for one night for our anniversary. Food and staff were wonderful. Perfect location for downtown shopping. The only trouble we had was the bed. Mattress needs replaced it was horrible. Fitted sheet and mattress cover would not stay on and we felt like we were sleeping in a bowl. We would come back again once their mattresses get... More

My husband surprised me with a gift certificate to the Artists Colony back in the spring. The plan was for us to ride mountain bikes but also enjoy the quaint, small town feel of Nashville, Indiana. This place did not disappoint! Super cute room and they were very flexible when we needed a room to accommodate our 11 year old,... More

My sister and I recently spent 2 nights at the Artist Colony Inn in Nashville. The location was perfect, within walking distance to shops & restaurants and just across the street from the Nashville Express Train stop. The 30-minute train ride around town was enjoyable, pointing out the points of interest and giving us a little history of the town... More

We stayed for two nights. Perfect weekend getaway! This place is centrally located and within walking distance to everything! Room was small but very clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast is included in the price- typical breakfast choices (nothing fancy) but everything was good. The atmosphere and decor is shaker style- great for a bed and breakfast. We... More

This was our second stay at the Artists Colony Inn and we loved it as much this time as we did the first time. The only way to describe this place is charming. It's a lovely old building with sweetly appointed rooms, all featuring art and artists from the area. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms... More
