My husband and I wanted a simple, small wedding but we didn't just want to go to the courthouse. Butterfly Hollow was the first and last place we looked at! I couldn't have dreamt of a more beautiful, perfect wedding for us!

Butterfly Hollow was really the only place that my wonderful husband, Jim, and I could have made the commitment to love and cherish each other forever.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Butterfly Hollow is nestled at the end of a private road in a storybook setting, on 85 secluded acres, just a short scenic 45 minute drive east of Nashville in a quaint riverside town. 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
