A delightful and detached studio guest house surrounded by Yellowwood State Forest on our 10 acres located on a quiet dead-end road between Nashville and Bloomington. The property boasts an organic garden, fishing pond, and six entertaining chickens.
This detached studio guest house is located halfway between Bloomington, Indiana and the artists' village of Nashville, Indiana--each about a 15 minute drive.
Our home and guest house sit on 10 acres, about half of which is wooded and connected to Yellowwood State Forest and the other half on which we play and work to produce organic fruit, berries, herbs, vegetables, and flowers. We share the property with a sweet rooster and 5 hens that lay fresh eggs every day. We provide fresh eggs in the fridge and other fresh food depending on what's available from the property that day. Guests can cook their own meals in the full size, fully equipped kitchen and dine at the kitchen table or at the picnic table outside.
The studio guest house has a full bath including a laundry facility. There is no tub, only a large shower, but we can provide a small tub for bathing a baby/toddler if needed. Outside of the bath/laundry room there is a separate large studio area that includes the kitchen and living/sleeping area including a queen bed and a full-size futon (see pictures). We can have the futon made-up as a bed upon request.
We live about 1 mile up a dead-end country road, at the end of which are hiking trails through Yellowwood State Forest. There is also a really nice, flat trail that follows the ridge right across from our driveway. We are 10 minutes from Yellowood Lake Recreation Area, 15 minutes to Brown County State Park, and half an hour from Monroe Reservoir and the Hoosier National Forest.
Guests have full access to the private studio house that is across a small gravel road from our main home. The guest house was built as an addition onto our large "workshop" that we use for storage (although there is no internal access between the workshop and the studio living space). Guests have a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, sink, stove and oven, basic kitchen supplies (including olive oil, herbs and spices, etc.), cookware and utensils, and a table with four chairs. We provide fresh eggs and seasonal food from our garden/property. Hosts are available on site but our spaces will not overlap.
