About the property

Private 1300 sq ft apartment, with 3 queen beds and lots of peace and quiet

Since 2011, our many guests have enjoyed all that "1078 Hideaway" has to offer. Located in a private, wooded setting 1/2 mile from downtown Nashville, the 1300 sq. ft. apartment is the entire first floor and comfortably accommodates up to 4 guests. The apartment has it's own back entrance, private deck, and covered parking spaces.

The main living room has a large 48" HD TV with Blu-ray DVD player, cable TV, and free WiFi access. There's also a massage chair and a beautiful gas log fireplace so you don't have to deal with the hassle of loading firewood. A pull-down Murphy bed containing a comfy, queen size Tempur-Pedic mattress is hidden in the wall, allowing it to be used as a second bedroom. And for privacy, there are folding doors to close the room off from the rest of the apartment. The large bedroom has two queen, pillow-top beds with luxurious linens, an assortment of pillows, and a 48" HD TV. The bathroom offers soaps, shampoo, conditioner, and plenty of soft towels for each guest. The kitchen includes a Keurig coffee maker with an assortment of coffees, teas, and hot chocolate, plus a washer and dryer. There's also a gas grill on the patio just outside the door if you want to enjoy steaks or burgers (paper plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery provided).

Guests have the entire back of the property to themselves, which includes a large private yard with a deck, grill, table with chairs, fire pit (wood provided), and outdoor games, including corn hole, horse shoes, and bocci ball.

The Hideaway is perfect for a romantic retreat, a 'Girl's Shopping Weekend', or a family getaway! Enjoy peaceful mornings outside on the suite's large deck, sipping coffee and watching the finch and hummingbird feeders. And in the evening, grab a sweater and gather around a bonfire in the fire pit or pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy the warmth and convenience of the living room's gas log fireplace. And the Hideaway is kid and family-friendly! Explore the bookshelf filled with playing cards and board games or go outside and enjoy the huge yard.

Less than 1/2 mile from the Hideaway is Downtown Nashville, where you can spend the day shopping, browsing art galleries, and tasting the local cuisine. One mile to the east is Brown County State Park, with its hiking and biking trails, lakes, picnic areas, swimming pools, and horseback riding. "eXplore Brown County" zip lines and the Salt Creek Golf Course are a quick drive from the house. Columbus and the Edinburgh Premium Outlets are only a 25 minute drive to the east. Lake Monroe and Bloomington (IU) are a short 30 minute drive to the west! There's lots close by to enjoy!

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS: The owners may be on-site, but we respect your privacy. We stay out of the way, unless invited to interact with you. We're more than happy to meet and answer any questions or give recommendations for local restaurants or venues. We also provide a binder in the suite with a ton of local information, including restaurant menus.






Check-in is at 3 pm, but if the Hideaway was unoccupied the night before, contact the owner. You may be able to check in early. Check-out is at 11 am.

Maximum occupancy is 4 guests. Children are welcome, but parents are responsible for the conduct and safety of their children.

Ample pillows, towels, and linens are provided, however we do not provide daily housekeeping services or guest meals.

Sorry, NO PETS and NO SMOKING, although guests are welcome to smoke on the deck.

Two night minimum stay for weekends in September and October. For the rest of the year, one night weekend stays are accepted the week before the requested arrival date.


Once a guest reserves the Hideaway, we turn down other potential guests for those dates. So, in an effort to be fair to both the guest and the owner, the following cancellation policy was put in place:

"A reservation must be cancelled 30 days prior to the arrival date in order to receive a full refund. If a cancellation is made less than 30 days prior to the arrival date, the guest will receive a 50% refund. However, if the cancelled date(s) are reserved by another guest, 100% of the reservation amount will be refunded back to the cancelling guest."

PLEASE NOTE: The upper level of the Hideaway is the owner's space, and while we're a quiet couple, you may occasionally hear faint creaking of the floors when we're there.

About Gerri Conboy

We fell in love with Nashville and Brown County in 2010 and moved here the first chance we could! It was the best decision we ever made!!!

Gerri Conboy purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Gerri Conboy chose Indiana

Nashville takes great pride in it's small town appeal, slower pace, and friendly people. It's truly a rare find in today's day and age! And '1078 Hideaway' reflects that same friendly, laid back feeling. Set way back off the road and surrounded by woods, the Hideway is the perfect spot to relax and getting away from it all. And when you're ready to start exploring Brown County, we're less than a mile from downtown Nashville's shops and restaurants and many area attractions, including the Brown County State Park and the Salt Creek Golf Course. Come join us and discover why Nashville is so special! We know you'll create many wonderful memories here and will be anxious to come back!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I spent a couple nights here enjoying the Nashville area. We would highly recommend the Hideaway. It was very clean and had all the comforts of home. We enjoyed the private backyard grilling out and the fire pit each night. We even saw deer roam through as we sat there. It was a very relaxing time and the owners were great to deal with. Thanks Gerri for sharing your home with us. We would love to come back soon.

Wonderful Country Setting

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this wonderful vacation rental. House is in a quiet and peaceful setting with only a few other houses around that are a good distance away. Great patio has fire pit with plenty of seasoned firewood, a nice gas grill and 4 bird feeders making it a bird watchers paradise. In the 3 days we were there we saw 12 different species (red headed woodpecker, eastern towhee, gold finch and more) and heard an eastern whip-poor-will every night. Inside is beautifully decorated and well equipped with high quality items and all the little extras that make for a pleasant stay. Kitchen is small and basic but has everything you need to cook meals (oven, micro, fridge, pots, pans) plus full size washer dryer, filtered water and Keurig coffee machine and all appliances are good quality and fairly new. Great location about 2 minutes from Nashville and 5 minutes to Brown County State Park.We had a wonderful time sitting on the patio enjoying nature and peace and quiet.

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Gerri and Tim went above and beyond to make our stay at The Hideout memorable. Happy Birthday balloon and bottle of wine to celebrate my wife's birthday greeted us as we entered through the private apartment entrance. The Hideout had a fully equipped kitchen, sparkling clean bathroom, living room with premium cable and a massage chair which came in handy after a full day of hiking in Brown County State Park! Outside deck for a peaceful morning breakfast and fire pit with an unlimited supply of dry wood added to our enjoyment. If that weren't enough, Gerri and Tim are wonderful people. They never stopped asking what they could do to make our stay more enjoyable. We had a terrific time this past weekend and made two new friends in the process. Thank you Gerri and Tim! It doesn't get any better than this!

Exceptional Accommodations in an Exceptional Area!

  • 5 of 5

All our expectations were exceeded. Gerri and Tim were so gracious and helpful (she even lent me her Fitbit charger when I forgot mine). The home was very well appointed, clean and comfortable, with everything we needed. We saw many kinds of birds, deer and other wildlife out the large picture window. The town of Nashville was quaint, the State Park had great hiking, and our accommodations were the best I've had through VRBO. I would highly recommend booking 1078 Hideaway for your Nashville vacation!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the hideaway has been one of our favorite vrbo rentals to date! The hosts go above and beyond to make the stay one to remember including a complimentary bottle of wine awaiting our arrival, chocolates on our bed, and a Keurig machine w lots of options for our morning starter. We came to visit a local wildlife refuge, but will definitely be returning to visit the downtown area soon!
