  • Stunning site. Our guide, Sam, was very knowledgeable, polite and specially careful to give some ethics to the children. A hidden treasure if you're a history lover
  • A ton of history sounds this place and the view/water is amazing. I went when their was Yoga on the water (SUP - stand up paddleboard) going on and that was extremely interesting. The staff is also very inviting, courteous, knowledgeable and helpful about tours and use of the space they have available.
  • Great place for an outdoor venue. The tour of the estate is also interesting.
  • We love Rock Castle. Such a Tennessee treasure.
  • Really cool tour, I love learning about these kind of places. The gift shop was good too.
