About This Spot
Belle Meade Plantation started in 1807 with a log cabin and 250 acres. It grew into a beautiful Greek Revival Mansion and one of the largest private estates in Nashville covering over 5400 acres and was the center of hospitality. Today, guests may explore the remaining 30 acres and find the original cabin, a slave cabin and a massive Carriage and Stable House built in 1892, housing one of the most impressive carriage collections to be found. We offer two historic tours: The Mansion Tour tells a century of Belle Meade’s history through the eyes of the Harding and Jackson families as well as the women, men, and children who labored here and contributed to the preeminence of this site. The Journey to Jubilee Tour invites discussion and focuses on the enslaved individuals, telling their story both before and after emancipation. After your guided tour is complete, you can enjoy a complimentary wine tasting in our Winery. We also have an on-site restaurant called The Belle Meade Meat & Three that features hickory smoked meats, fresh cooked vegetables, cornbread and biscuits and house-made desserts. Indulge in our wines, our hand-made chocolates, our homemade fudge or ice cream, and then visit our gift shops for even more treasures. From our guided historic tours, to our Food and Wine Pairings, Bourbon Experiences, or Segway Tours, we have a variety of opportunities for you to relax and escape to our sanctuary of Southern hospitality.
