About Belle Meade Plantation, Nashville

A magnificent Greek Revival Mansion takes centre stage on Belle Meade Plantation. It used to be one of the South’s largest thoroughbred horse farms. This plantation claims that many great horses can link their ancestry back to this farm. This magnificent Mansion escaped unscathed during the Civil War. There are several buildings for you to tour including the original cabin, carriage houses and stables. The slave cabin exhibit is very informative and the tour concludes with a complimentary wine tasting at the Belle Meade Winery.

Belle Meade has observed centuries of human history. Native tribes used the woods to hunt wild game. Over time European settlers developed a trail and started a trading route throughout the Southeast. In 1806 John Harding purchased land and being a skilled farmer and businessman, he began his new farm. His farm, the Belle Meade Plantation, had diverse operations. To reflect the success of the planation, the house was enlarged. Stucco was applied to cover the red bricks and limestone pillars of Doric order was were established. A two story kitchen extension was also attached to the house via a two level breezeway. Learn history in a more interesting ways than textbook or documentary.

  • If you love historical mansions - this is a must see before you leave the Nashville area! But - word to the wise, book your tour tickets ahead of time. They tend to sell out quickly. Also - wear comfortable clothing and be prepared for the heat if you visit in the summer! Most of the tour is on the grounds. Loved the wine tasting included in the tour at the end!!

  • Historically relevant & beautifully maintained -- this is a MUST SEE place for anyone interested in historic homes and/or equestrian pedigree. The grounds are impeccably maintained, and the home is decadently put together in the style/era that it was lived in. Can be expensive admission -- look for coupons around Nashville's travel sites or watch their website for specials. Multiple types of tours offered (grounds only, mansion & grounds, etc.) Tours vary based on the time of year that you visit, but you will be fascinated no matter when you are there. They also have a wine label and wine tastings after a mansion tour.

  • Wonderful tour by the guides, in addition to the info in the tour they had answers to questions fielded by the guests. Enjoyed the history and care taken to present the mansion and it's history to the public. While you are not allowed pictures inside the mansion, the grounds are fair game and provide enough entertainment and size to occupy a good hour or more depending on your interest. I recommend anyone with a passing interest in history to spend a half day or so here, you won't regret it.

  • Such an interesting place to visit! I would recommend buying your tickets online as once we arrived the mansion tours were sold out. We were able to explore the grounds independently and spend as much time as we wanted on the grounds. The housing the slaves resided in literally gave me chills and honestly made me feel emotional. I had to hold back my tears being inside seeing the stories and artifacts. A little disappointed we couldn't see inside the mansion but overall a great experience! You are able to do a small complimentary wine tasting while there, we bought 4 bottles of the dry red and white. Very delicious.

  • Beautiful grams and Mansion. Our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions asked. Wine tasting was fun as well. I even bought a bottle of their Blackberry wine. The grounds are beautiful. They have a spot to enjoy wine and cheese if the weather is nice. I will return in the summer.
