Two couples of us toured your facility. We were very disappointed in not being allowed to take pictures inside the building.. Why did you think we attended?

We enjoyed Belle Meade. Very informative tour through the house, I could feel the history. After the tour we went out to the garden where we played Bocce Ball, I had never played before. We all had a good time.

Interesting stories, enjoyed the sites and information presented orally and in written form. The docent was knowledgeable, pleasant and dressed to represent the era. The carriage house was wonderful.
