Private Retreat near Nashville TN

Butterfly Hollow is for those that love nature. It's for us who love the quiet. It's for the star gazers, hummingbird lovers, and firefly catchers.

When we found Butterfly Hollow some twenty years ago we instantly fell in love with the woods, beautiful views and the most amazing lightning bugs we have ever seen, not to mention the butterflies that are here in the thousands throughout the summer. The home-place dates back to 1899 and when we discovered it, the house and property had been abandoned for over thirty years. It took us a little over four years to blow life and love back into the cabin, completely restoring the house ourselves. Can't stop smiling now! I'm just glad we did it when we were in our 30's. :-)

I love waking up with a cup of coffee and sitting on the wrap around covered porch or out on a bench in one of the gardens and watching the 70+ variety of birds wake up and sing, lazy afternoons in the hammock... dozing off while reading a novel, eating dinner together outside on the side deck with candles glowing and listening to the amazing songs of the crickets, night owls and tree frogs. It's such a magical place. It's just meant to be shared.

Butterfly Hollow has been shared with guests from around the world for over 14 years. It has slowly evolved from a bed and breakfast into a Vacation Home Rental and for Intimate weddings and Private Events on select dates throughout the year.

Location - Butterfly Hollow is located at the end of the road in its own secluded 85 acre valley with the Cumberland Mountain foothills wrapped all around. The Country Drive to Butterfly Hollow is part of the adventure. Even though we are only ten minutes off the interstate, you'll feel something melt inside you as the roads change to one lane and the hillsides become adorned with nature and farm life. Once you turn on to our private drive, you'll feel the lush hillside around you slowly engulf your senses and by the time you reach our gate there will be a new calm and slowness in your breath. Inhale the sweet country air and exhale all your worries as you wind your way into the hollow.

Romantic Getaway Cabin
Cozy Spaces - Our home features an open living room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams and a hand-laid fireplace built from stones off the land. As you walk inside the log and poplar siding cabin you might feel the essence of a mountain lodge with the wood ceiling, large cedar posts, and exposed balcony. The many natural colors of the Poplar plank walls, the field stone fireplace, wide plank oak floors and vintage barnwood furnishings add a warmth and comfort to the home that makes it so easy to spend cool evenings or rainy afternoons snuggled on the leather couch reading, watching a little TV or just enjoying the warmth of the fire. The kitchen has designer barnwood cabinets with custom made maple countertops, a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and is stocked with everything you need, from a wine opener, pots and pans and baking dishes to forks and knives. The living area has a large, flat screen, wall mounted television for endless entertainment.

There are three spacious bedrooms in the house. The master suite is located on the first floor and has a adjoining bathroom and private screened in porch. You'll sleep like you've never rested before on the cozy, queen sized, custom made, log bed. The other two bedrooms are located up the aged oak staircase on the second floor. Each room has comfortable full size beds with down toppers and their own private bath.

The front porch has beautiful views and includes rocking chairs, Willow log chairs and tables, a two person hammock and plenty of outdoor tables and seating. There is a wood deck on the east side of the house with an equally beautiful view of the gardens.

There is a hillside gazebo that is snuggled among the trees that also beckons with a lazy hammock. Let the leaves of the grape vines shade you inside the grape arbor.

May the miles of walking trails lead you to the places where true solitude exists.

The best way to soak in the solitude of the hollow is to take a slow walk through the gardens and flowers. There are walking trails that will take you through towering hardwood forests, and on top of the ridges and hills where you can watch the hawks dance within magnificent views of Cumberland Mountain foothills.
