We stayed here for an Indiana University graduation. While we didn't have an opportunity to see a lot of Nashville, this hotel is in the middle of this charming town. The hotel was cute and cozy. We stayed in the 'Ada Schulz' room which was in the front of the hotel and had a balcony. The room itself was very clean and the bed comfortable. What the room lacked in convenience, a full length mirror, a larger tv, a closet and better lighting in the bathroom, it made up in simple, rustic charm. The breakfast that was included was simple, yet tasty and you could choose to eat outside on their porch. Overall it was a very relaxing, back to basics, hotel. The staff was friendly, parking was a breeze. It is only 18 scenic miles to the IU campus.

This hotel is right in the middle of of the downtown area with all the shopping and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel itself has a very nice restaurant providing free breakfast for the hotel guests. The people are super nice and easy to work with.

I will warn you that, while the hotel is very clean, it is very simply furnished and decorated. There are no closets, just hooks on the wall. Bring your own hangers. The bed was comfortable enough, but not super cushy. The TV is very small. The bathroom is small, but clean.

We stayed in the room on the 2nd floor above the restaurant with the balcony. It was nice to have some outside space, but the wall around the balcony was so tall that we could not see over it without standing on a chair. I think I would rather have stayed in the rooms with smaller balconies where you could see the action on the street.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.

Above average room. Great mattress and pillows. Quiet and great ambience.
Below average breakfast. Biscuits were a bit hard and eggs were a bit rubbery. Wife thought pancakes were bland.
I am a night shift worker so I like a
later check out. I was denied the request. We was still about 10 minutes late on the check out but was not a problem.

Enjoyed our stay at the Inn with a very clean and comfortable room . Location and setting amongst the shopping ,buggy rides and view is unique to Artist colony Inn alone. The Victorian house across the street and the porch of the Inn are the center of this tourist area in my opinion.
The food has always been very good and reasonably priced. We have dined there at least 4 times and was never disappointed.
Breakfast buffet was included with the room and would be very satisfying to all ages with a wide variety and tasty well prepared quality items. The room price is standard for an upscale room in this area with the breakfast being the added bonus. Dining on the porch is very enjoyable and the staff were very friendly and service was also very good.
We slept very well and would recommend this stay to anyone, believing in "You get what you pay for." Rooms are generally not cheap here so the Inn is reasonably priced . Right in the heart of it all.

Artists Colony Inn is a clean, quaint Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Nashville, IN. It's the perfect place for a weekend getaway, with fun restaurants, shops, and wineries nearby. Breakfast is included with your stay, and it's a full buffet with everything from homemade biscuits to French Toast, to sausage and bacon. Servers are quick to refill your coffee cup. All the decor is wood floors and Shaker furniture.

I'll go back to Artists Colony!

Very quaint and warm rooms. Mattresses are uncomfortable and hard but service is very nice. Restaurant is in same building which allows you to eat without going out in the cold or rain. I recommend the visit because the shopping is great.

Room Tip: Balconies are available in some rooms and room 203 is in the corner without surrounding rooms which...

We were very disappointed with the Artist Colony. The location is great but the rooms are very worn and noisey. Carpet looked dirty and the bed was horrible! You sunk to the middle, so much so, it was difficult to get out and my back hurt for 2 days. It smelled musty in the room. Breakfast was average. It definitely was not worth the money.
