We had a great time. We did the Segway Tour and loved it. Our guide Erica was great and very informative. We would recommend it to anyone.

The Segway tour was awesome! We enjoyed touring the grounds and learning about the Belle Meade history- outside the house. This tour doesn't include a tour of the house.

The Belle Meade Plantation is beautiful and the Segway tour was literally the highlight of our first annual "outlaw sisters" trip. Erica was our tour guide and she was amazing, full of knowledge and a joy to spend time with. It was our groups first time on Segways and it was so much fun. It was a great way to see this wonderful plantation and added to the experience. We highly recommend a visit to the Belle Meade Plantation, and hey the wine tasting afterwards was great as well. The wines are made by Belle Meade and they were really good! I also recommend buying some of their homemade syrups in the gift shop. So much wonderful history and beautiful surroundings!

From Our Editors

When visitors walk between the 1853 Greek-revival mansion’s six solid-cut stone pillars, onto the portico, and through the heavy wood door, they might tour the rooms or learn to cook in its original kitchen. Originally founded by John Harding in 1807 for thoroughbred-horse breeding, the rolling grounds of Belle Meade Plantation now welcome seasonal tours and events ranging from book signings to art shows. Knowledgeable guides in period costumes lead tour groups through the building’s parlors and bedrooms and down a long central hallway to ascend the three floors via a circular cherry-wood staircase.

As groups wander the mansion and cross the grounds, guides divulge facts about famous visitors, such as President Cleveland and General Ulysses S. Grant, including the fact that they probably got scared of the dark just like normal people. During special tours, the staff demonstrates Southern cooking techniques and walks visitors through an herb garden or serves them lemonade or hot wassail with desserts. In an on-grounds winery, winemakers hold tastings of red and white varietals made from Tennessee grapes. Visitors can also clink wineglasses over Southern-style cuisine at the Harding House restaurant, located on the plantation grounds.
