Guides in period costumes lead visitors through the rooms of the Greek Revival mansion, reciting history narratives and pointing out original decor and furnishings in two parlors, four bedrooms, a kitchen, and a library. They also leave the mansion’s wide portico and cross the plantation grounds to other historical structures, such as a dairy house, horse stable, carriage house, mausoleum, gardens, and a log cabin. Tours end with a complimentary tasting at the plantation’s winery.

Belle Meade Plantation

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.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I LOVED our visit to Belle Meade! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. The house and grounds are BEAUTIFUL, well kept, and reminiscent of times gone by. The wine tasting was fun, and this non-wine drinker found 2 local wines that I really enjoyed. We will most definitely be back!
