Very secluded and quiet. Perfect romantic get-a-way for more my wife and I. We did day hikes, canoeing, and just relaxing on the property. Dave and his family were great hosts and were great company over breakfast. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to unwind and get a way from everyday life. Love the intimate environment.

We chose Butterfly Hollow as part of an all inclusive elopement/weekend getaway. Dave and Beth Anne were wonderful hosts in this secluded paradise. We literally just stayed there the whole time and felt no real need to venture out. We appreciated the focus on little details, attentiveness to our needs, high level of cleanliness,and most of all the wonderful breakfasts... More

My wife recently decided to plan a weekend trip for the two of us to get away and relax. A couple of years ago, one of her friends had recommended Butterfly Hollow as a potential wedding ceremony site. My wife went to Butterfly Hollow's website and researched the site. She decided to book the Leyton's Porch room. We just returned... More

We were looking for a weekend escape from our lives where we didn't have to drive for hours to get there. I have found the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life. The B&B is tucked away in a hollow so that you can't just be stumbled upon. This is just a 3 bedroom B&B so... More

My wife and I spent our 21st wedding anniversary here this past weekend. It is absolutely beautiful. We have already booked a room for next year and are staying longer. The hospitality of Dave is top notch. He was in to cook breakfast from scratch both mornings. While we only ate one of those mornings, it was amazing. Dave and... More

This B&B sits at the very back of a neighborhood far from any neighbors. There are stores,restaurants and a gas station about 10 min. away. This is what you call a GET A WAY.

Thank you for your review of our "hidden retreat". Butterfly Hollow's best feature is our location "off the beaten path" allowing guests to escape every day life. Although being located in the foothills of the Cumberland Plateau and situated on 82 wooded acres attracts many of our guests, I apologize this resulted in some discomfort. Hopefully on your return visit... More

A perfect hide-away treasure. If you are looking for serenity, this is the best little place hidden away in a Tennessee hollow. A hollow is as breathtaking as the top of a mountain or an ocean view..

These Cumberland plateau foothills are where those from Nashville and other nearby cities come to play. The close proximity to mountain streams filled with rainbow trout, hiking and biking trails and two beautiful, scenic lakes, less than ten minutes away, makes Butterfly Hollow a perfect getaway for families, couples, recording artists, songwriters and the discerning traveler looking for a little peace and solitude during their visit to Tennessee. It's the perfect hideaway for Romantic Getaways, A Weekend with Friends, an Escape for the Whole Family, a Private Artist / Writer's Retreat, Special Events, and Intimate Weddings. ... more   less
