We’re a husband and wife team, and the parents of 4 and 6 year old daughters. We have always loved to travel and still take the occasional adults-only trip. However, most of our trips now are with our kids — usually with other family and friends along as well.
We’ve stayed in campgrounds, hotels, Airbnbs, and with friends and relatives; it’s rarely glamorous, usually an adventure, and there are always a lot of laughs along the way.
Becoming parents brought our priorities and goals into sharper focus. In our search for our “village,” we moved in 2014 and again in 2016, switched jobs more than once, and finally settled in Nashville, Indiana.
We want to live in a place that offers a natural beauty and slower pace of life that allows us to feel like we we’re on vacation every day. We have found that in Brown County and we truly love this town we’ve come to call home.
As dreamers and doers at heart, we hope to build a business with the potential to benefit both locals and tourists alike, while also enabling the type of future we want for ourselves and our family.
We believe in the power of collaboration to create exceptional outcomes. That’s why we’ve partnered with local makers, movers, and shakers to create a one-of-a-kind, local-focused experience at the Brown County Barn Burner.
Designed with the mantra, “get away, play, stay” in mind, once complete the Brown County Barn Burner will feature:
four residential units for overnight, short term rental;
a 1,250 square foot all-ages interactive play space, run by local play expert, and owner of the Brown County Toy Chest, Hilary Key;
Whether you’re a Brown County local or a visitor, let us make it easier to get away, discover something new in a place that may seem familiar, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
