I had my wedding and reception at this venue and could not have asked for this site to have been any more amazing. I was married in September in the outdoor space (Boxwood Gardens) and had my reception in the carriage house. The caterers were wonderful and wowed our guests at the reception. My day was stress free that we all enjoyed it immensely. I would recommend the Belle Meade Plantation to anyone. They sure did give me my fairy tale dream wedding.
I Love this place !!! – My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Nashville and went on the tour of this fabulous piece of American history. We could of spent the entire day looking around this place. The people we so nice and friendly and I got the best history lesson then I ever had in school. We can't wait to return to Nashville and see this place again. I spent a lot of money in the lovely gift shop and we ate lunch at their restaraunt there. The food was so good!!! If you are ever in this area please tour through this fantastic place, you will have a great time.
Wonderful Southern Gem – We first visited this wonderful location for a wedding reception a couple of years ago, after my husband got transferred to Nashville. I couldn't believe we had driven past this on Harding Road many times without knowing it existed. Since then, I have been on tours of the beautiful mansion, including around Christmas last year. Christmas is the best time to visit, as the costumes and decorations are adorable. If you love Steeplechase and horses like we do, you will love the fabulous history of the Plantation and it's significance in the history of horse racing. The gift shop is well stocked and has books, plenty of selections for children, and something unique if you are shopping for the person who has everything.
Elegant home was the Grande Dame of pre-war Nashville. – In Short
The 1853 Greek Revival mansion is commonly referred to as the "Queen of Tennessee Plantations." A log cabin on the premises dates back to 1790, although the mansion remains in mid-19th century furnishings. Guides in period costume take groups through the home, pointing out things like bulletholes in the limestone columns. The 30-acre grounds hold summer concerts and the annual Fall Fest. During Christmas, the mansion is decked out in period garlands.
WOW...Wonderful, Fantastic, What A DAY – This was simply one of the most enjoyable experiences of our trip to Nashville. The house and grounds are both historic and beautiful. The tour guide, John, was informative, witty and a lot of fun. The house itself was decked out for Christmas and could not have been more interesting and beautiful. Anyone interested in history, needs to take a couple of hours and enjoy this treasure. Simply Amazing!
Superb Experience! – I was quite impressed at the variety of things to see at Belle Meade Plantation. It is not just a house museum but an entire plantation experience where you get to see how the family started out, original buildings that survived the civil war and they even had a special event going on when we were there. The promotional material said that they have ongoing events throughout the year so my family is planning to return in the Fall for Fall Fest. We spent an entire afternoon here - what a treat!
Belle Meade: A true Southern Belle – Truly a great historical site with lots of charm and character. The guides are informative, helpful, and make the tour a delight with their witty humor and entertaining stories. If you are looking for something different, then Belle Meade Plantation is the best of the Tennessee Plantations. They also have a great gift shop and restaurant.
