Experience a Unique Piece of History

Great Outing with Friends and Neighbors

"Belle Meade Plantation was a perfect outing for our small group of neighbors and friends. The educational tour of the Mansion followed by a casual, but informative, stroll of the grounds gave our group of six a perfect day of history, learning, and conversation. A delightful lunch in the on-sight restaurant capped off the day."

Historic and Charming

"This was the home to thoroughbred racehorses such as Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Seabiscuit, and many others. It was interesting to learn the history as well as tour the beautiful grounds. There is an ice cream shop, bocce ball area, and croquet, too. I would recommend this tour for older children and adults."

What a great find!

"Belle Meade Plantation was a horse plantation and a great find only 5 miles from our downtown hotel. Beautiful mansion, very informative 45 minute guided tour and free wine tastings after the tour. Rocking chairs on the porch while you wait for your tour. 5 stars!"

Stunning

"This plantation is breathtaking and the tour guides were phenomenal. All of the different guides were very knowledgable and engaging, and the self-guided tour of the grounds was easy and informative. We were lucky enough to see the horses outside, explored the grounds along the stream, and shared a bottle of their delicious wine after the tasting post-tour. Such beautiful grounds with so much information!"
