Romantic Nashville vacation home rentals

Tucked away in southern Indiana, Nashville is a small town that's brimming with charm. It's the beating heart of the historic Brown County Art Colony, with scores of local studios, galleries and craft co-ops to explore. Nashville is also a gateway to Brown County State Park. Known as the Little Smoky Mountains, the park is a wonderland of flower-filled forests, fog-cloaked gullies and emerald-hued lakes. Thanks to its romantic atmosphere, Nashville is emerging as a top wedding destination. Luxury Nashville vacation rentals are the perfect way to celebrate, with spacious lodges big enough to house your entire wedding party.
