Loved Belle Meade and the beautiful 30 acres of land that it is situated. Wonderful knowledgeable guides give you a wonderful background of this historical fabulous for stud farm. Originally there were 5,000 acres. Highly recommended even though approximately 7 miles from downtown Nashville

The Belle Meade Mansion is a clean, well- preserved slice of historic Nashville. with a huge, cavernous carriage house and lovely trees. Cherriest thing about it, in my opinion, though, is jazz music, played to the public on the lawn through the summer months.

Horsebreeding background of the plantation is refreshingly different. The tour of the mansion was one of the best ones I've experienced. Wine tasting at end was enjoyable too. Awesome value with Groupon tickets.

Belle Meade is a stunning example of architecture, landscaping, and heritage. The home is decorated as it was in times of yore, and one can easily imagine life there as they traverse the halls of this lovely home.

Interesting, but pricey compared to comparable museum house tours. A major portion of the house is undergoing significant restoration at the time of this writing and therefore was closed to the public; the already-expensive admission price should have been discounted. The winery similarly was disproportionately...More

I did not notice any Segways on the Plantation. The landmarks are fairly close to each other and we're easy to walk to.

I do not believe that the house was air-conditioned (at least not all of it)-- but it was comfortable during the tour as they do have some type of ventilation that seemed to keep it at a reasonable temperature even when it... More
