Belle Meade Plantation is a non-profit historic site located in Nashville, TN. Established in 1807, Belle Meade was revered as the greatest thoroughbred stud farm in the United States. It was home to Iroquois,the first American bred horse to win the Epsom Derby and the great foundation sire,Bonnie Scotland,whose descendants include Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Native Dancer, Big Brown and California Chrome. Belle Meade was owned and operated by the Harding-Jackson family for nearly a century from 1807 until 1906. Today their home is restored to its turn of the century appearance along with several original outbuildings.

The Belle Meade Plantation is an impressive piece of Nashville history and those who enjoy stepping back in time on a guided tour of a typically upscale 19th century estate should spend a few hours at Belle Meade. It may not be as elegant as...More

Belle Meade is truly a majestic mansion that transports you to another place in time. The presenters on the tour were informative and answered all questions. The winery is a nice touch and the grounds are beautiful. If in area highly recommend a visit.

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
