Just thirty minutes north of Nashville lay the rolling hills and charming small towns of Robertson County. The legends hidden in the hills and caves draw visitors curious about the tales of the Bell Witch, America’s most famous spirit. In late summer, fragrant smoke settles over the fields of the county as tobacco farmers begin the process of smoking their crop in hundred-year-old barns, producing our world-famous Dark Fired Tobacco. The area is loaded with history and culture, delicious food and drink, and opportunities for the whole family to enjoy true Southern Hospitality.

“When you find yourself standing in the middle of Stars Hollow and Mayberry, and oh, by the way, turns out you live there? Last Saturday I found myself having dinner, with 150 other people, in the middle of a graveyard dating back to the beginning of the 1800s… We have fallen in love with this community!”
