Butterfly Hollow is the perfect getaway for a romantic weekend, anniversary/birthday celebration, a Nashville destination wedding/elopement, or just simply a place to spend time with friends. If you are following your Nashville musical dreams, Butterfly Hollow offers a wonderful music or artist retreat.

The Cumberland Plateau foothills are where those from Nashville and nearby cities come to play. The close proximity to the Caney Fork River, the many miles of hiking and biking trails, Center Hill Lake and scenic Cordell Hull Lake makes Butterfly Hollow a perfect getaway for the discerning traveler looking for nature and a little peace and solitude.

You’ll find it so easy to transform into a relaxed state of mind in these quiet, natural surroundings. The Hollow is a private retreat, less than seven miles from Gordonsville Tennessee, Carthage Tennessee, and fifteen miles east of historic Lebanon Tennessee.

As a traditional bed and breakfast guests have a few common areas they share throughout their stay including gathering at the breakfast table. As your Innkeeper I am fully vaccinated and ask if you do not feel well or recently recovering from an illness you consider cancelling or postpone your trip.

An 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.
