My boyfriend and I decided to take a weekend trip to Nashville after we saw a Groupon offered for Always Inn. We thought it would be a great opportunity to check out the town before the weather got too cold and to take a day trip to IU, where I went to college.
We didn't arrive until late on Friday evening, but Lois met us at the door and showed us upstairs, where snacks like oatmeal and cookies are always available and coffee is always ready to go. The living room was clean and cozy, with a pretty large collection of reading materials and VHS tapes - although our room didn't have a VCR. We headed down to our room - the Evergreen - and we were very pleased to find that the room (and bathroom) was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. Lois let us know that she likes to come in and make the beds, replace towels, etc. every morning, unless we were uncomfortable with her doing so. I thought it was lovely of her to offer, and I appreciated the heads up! We slept very well that night and got up for breakfast in the morning. We had a really wonderful time eating breakfast with the other guests…it was so much fun talking with everyone that we wound up hanging out for about an hour and a half! We were gone most of the day on Saturday in Nashville and Bloomington and had a really amazing time.
Overall, we had a really enjoyable two-night stay. The service was wonderful, the whole facility was comfortable and clean, and it was a very peaceful weekend away. My boyfriend kept telling me how great everything was, and how much he enjoyed our trip. I definitely imagine that we'll be back to Brown County in the near future, and we won't hesitate to stay at Always Inn again. We might even bring our dog next time, as the B&B is dog friendly, and I think he would love to hike in the state park!
