Day 4: Nashville

Join your private guide for a tour of the beautiful Belle Meade Plantation today. Priding themselves with more than 200 years of Nashville’s finest hospitality, the plantation's private guides offer stories of those who lived there. Journey back in time and learn how what started as a 250-acre plot and a modest log cabin became what was once the country’s largest thoroughbred horse farm, stretching over 5,400 acres and hosting celebrities, presidents and the southern gentlemen of its time. The history of this grand mansion is the history of a family weathering the ups and downs through the Civil War. Consisting of only 24 acres today, the plantation remains flanked by massive magnolias, and although its stucco facade has somewhat faded since it was originally construction over 150 years ago, Belle Meade Plantation remains one of Tennessee’s premier plantations. Continue your plantation experience at an onsite winery enjoying a private tasting of premier wines including an accompaniment of light food pairings while taking in the relaxing atmosphere. Conclude your tour with a private transfer back to your hotel.
