  • Incredible! The mansion is amazing. The tour was great, we had a wonderful guide. The wine was so good, and the guys doing the tasting were hilarious. It was a wonderful, serene atmosphere and I didn't want to leave. The restaurant was equally amazing. The mint julep goes PERFECT with brunch. The service was phenomenal. One of my favorite places on Earth.
  • Iconic Nashville experience for those with any interest in history. Log cabin now has beautiful period furniture and explanations. Horses have returned to front lawn. Free do it yourself tour if you follow the path and wander the grounds. Start at the log cabin right of the parking lot. Paid tour of mansion is definite worth it includes wine tasting in stables which now feature period carriages (can see carriages for free). They sell out mansion tours so book online before you come to Nashville.
  • This is a great stop in Nashville and one of the few spots that possesses cultural and historical value. The house was preserved well, the space was well manicured, and everything was very well kempt. The house tour was amazing and the guide shared a lot of great information.
  • Awesome historical mansion chocked full of history and southern charm. Took a cool trip back in time. The winery is small but expanding. Great wine and tasting though. Restaurant looked incredible, but we didn't eat. Good way to spend a half day.
  • Beautiful Plantation with an interesting history. Definitely take the tour if you have the time. I would not buy the bourbon. It is made somewhere else and they just license the name.
