Although the Ruddick-Nugent House is a Columbus bed and breakfast, nearby is a thriving and inspiring art community.  The Brown County Art Colony attracts artists from all over the region to inspire creativity and imagination.  Nashville, Indiana accommodations can be tough to come by, but our B and B is close enough and will inspire on its own.  We've renovated the gardens to become a tranquil space inviting people to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty. 

Artists or any guests looking for the relaxing atmosphere and charm of a Nashville, IN B&B will find it here in our gardens. Spend some time enjoying the themed designs and landscaping we've recently worked on.  Zen like settings, beautiful sculptures and wonderful fountains can all be found on the grounds. Plenty of shade and sun are available at all times of the day and year.  You can find a quiet area to reflect, meditate and become inspired.  Below are more descriptions and pictures of the gardens and their features.
