Just 30 minutes from Nashville, The Hideaway is a legacy property that inspired the outlaw country music legend.
The cozy three-bedroom cabin has had only two owners — Willie Nelson, who built the home, and the current resident. Isolated on 155 acres of Tennessee countryside, the home promises a quiet retreat from the bright lights of Nashville.
A barn is near the entrance to the property, and guests follow a meandering mile to the front door. A fireplace in the living room cuts the winter chill, and a homey, eat-in kitchen beckons guests to gather around the table. There are two bedrooms and a third loft-style room overlooking the living area.

According to People magazine, the current cabin caught fire in 1970. Nelson returned home to find it in flames, and he ran into the burning structure to rescue his beloved guitar “Trigger” and a “pound of weed.” The incident earned him the infamous nickname — “Shotgun Willie” and also inspired the song by the same name.
With acres of green pasture, woodlands, and hiking trails, The Hideaway could easily inspire the next Nashville great.
