Introduction to Rawhide Ranch

A taste of the Old West right here in Nashville, Indiana.

A year-round Indiana guest ranch and horseback riding vacation you will never forget tucked in the hills of Brown County Indiana. Come explore Brown County on horseback or through Holler Hoppin' Zip Lines.

Imagine, a two story barn with an 11 room hotel on top and a 32 stall horsebarn below. The 32 stall barn has slowly been converted into a banquet barn. Seven of the stalls have been converted into our dining hall operation allowing us to provide breakfast and lunch to guests. Expanding our catering service into large groups and events. Two more stalls have been converted into an indoor/outdoor space that we call the Cowboy Lounge. We also installed restrooms into another of the indoor stalls along with a hardwood floored double stall for catering food.

Rawhide Ranch is perfectly set up for the large group as well as the individual family wanting to escape. The Buck Inn is the second story with beautifully furnished rooms with private baths, great gathering rooms and two fireplaces. The horse stable below is used as a banquet room and is a true country twist to a wedding, reception, family dinner, corporate retreat and more. The Indiana service is as warm and inviting as the handmade quilts on the Amish-crafted hickory beds. This will be an Indiana guest ranch vacation, Indiana horseback riding vacation or Indiana weekend getaway that you will always remember.


Family Friendly is to put it lightly. The ranch is ideally set up for families. When making your reservation, keep in mind that the ranch is usually filled with families during spring break, summer break and fall break. If you are looking to escape and enjoy a quiet get-a-way, please make your reservation during the week or non-peak times.

Rawhide Ranch is ideal for a Brown County guest ranch vacation, Brown County Indiana horseback riding vacation, Brown County family reunion, group meeting, Brown County wedding reception, birthday party, corporate planning retreat, horse show, trail ride, hobby club, bike teams or a relaxing Brown County Indiana weekend getaway to a simpler time.
