When you come to the birthplace of American bourbon and whiskey, one of the best things to do in Nashville is to visit the distilleries along the Tennessee Whiskey Trail! You’ll find a collection of more than 30 distilleries offering tours and tastings of this historic (and strong!) spirit. But it’s not just whiskey, many of these Tennessee distillers have a diverse portfolio of products, and the best way to find out more is by mapping a route along the Tennessee Whiskey Trail.
With so many Tennessee distilleries to explore, you could make a whole vacation centered around tastings and tours. Most importantly, you’ll want a soft place to land, and our Nashville Bed and Breakfast offers one of the most comfortable spaces to make your home away from home. Our meticulously restored 1832 Antebellum Mansion is a testament to historic preservation, and we love the reactions of awe from our guests when they first arrive. Each of our guest rooms is beautifully designed with luxurious en suite baths to make your stay absolutely unforgettable.
