Discover Butterfly Hollow - A Hidden RetreatAn Eco-Friendly Retreat

Butterfly Hollow is a sanctuary for wildlife, humans and nature which began in 1996 with the renovation of its 1899 farmhouse. Ensuring the farmhouse and surrounding area were preserved, the restoration used timber and stone from the property along with reclaimed antique lumber and materials. As caretakers, we continue to strive to maintain this beautiful spot of land.

May the path lead you to Butterfly Hollow one day soon.

Walking Trails

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.


There is nothing like the stars at night when you are in the country. Take one of the blankets from inside the farmhouse and snuggle out under the stars. Breath the clean night air and watch the flicker of the candles on the porch while the night birds and owls softly sing you to sleep.
