“Mom and Pop gem minutes away from Nashville and Bloomington”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The Hickory Shades has gone through several owners since we started staying there some 20 years ago. Some changes were for the worse - notably the short-lived transformation to big-chain management and sky-high prices several years ago. But now, the place is back to being better-than-ever. Very reasonable prices - cheaper than anywhere in Bloomington or Nashville. Immaculately clean. Friendly and helpful owners. Nice, well-appointed rooms, including one with a hot tub and kitchenette. Much-improved satellite tv and wifi. The location is great as well - 12 minutes east of Bloomington, 12 minutes west of Nashville and on the doorsteps of the under-used and beautiful Yellowwood State Forest. The drive in either direction is relaxing, winding, and wooded. The grounds themselves are lovely with towering hickories, a small stream, and picnic area. Whether you're staying in Nashville, touring Brown County, or spending time in Bloomington, the Hickory Shades will provide you with a quiet, relaxing, affordable place to stay.
