  • The tour guide made the tour. This is a "something to do tour" the mansion is underwhelming and you see very little due to preservation reasons. The food in the restaurant is homey and southern.

  • A beautiful place with lots of history. We went on a Friday morning and the place was decently packed. There were a couple tours - one through the mansion and another a self guided tour. We opted for the latter and had a great time exploring at our own pace. My friend tried a variety of wines as part of the package and had a lot of fun tasting. You get to see the smokehouse, diary house, doll house everything of which is so unique and special to their time. One of the unique tourist spots!
  • Came to Nashville to experience the music and food of downtown for our anniversary. We Wanted to incorporate some history and we had heard that Belle Meade was a beautiful place with lots of history. I can’t tell you how happy we are that we dedicated time for this experience! We had the best tour guide who taught us so much. The mansion and the history of the family was incredible. It also teaches you about the civil war and slavery at this location. I loved the walk through the green beautiful fields and seeing where they kept their horses. The wine tasting was such a treat. All four wines were so good and their shops were great. We happily purchased a case to share with friends and family. I highly recommend this place and the tour!!
