We wanted to have a small, quaint wedding but yet romantic and stress-free setting....ran across Butterfly Hollow just randomly searching online, called right away and knew it was the one. David and Sharon made that weekend absolutely perfect for my husband, myself, and family. It was a dream come true in every way...from the relaxing setting, the decorating, the cake,...

My daughter and her fiance chose Butterfly Hollow to have their wedding after attending an open house last year. They could not have made a better choice. David & Sharon are the perfect host & hostess. Their attention to detail is superb. The pictures are A plus and then some. The reception dinner was the best and yes, the wedding...

Where should I start......Butterfly Hollow is an amazing place. We fell in love with it on the internet, but had no idea how wonderful and welcomed we would feel until we actually got there. It is a dream come true. David and Sharon are a wonderful host and hostess. They helped make our dream wedding come true. Not only did...

It is easy to see the beauty that envelops Butterfly Hollow. My wife and I could see that much by browsing the website. In our first trip to a Bed and Breakfast, we weren't quite sure what to expect. As soon as we arrived our expectations no longer mattered. We entered a welcoming, peaceful, relaxing environment that was created by...

Given our love for Country music, Nashville seemed like a good idea, and after an hour or two of browsing Lynne came up with Butterfly Hollow as the perfect setting for a...

We searched the internet far and wide until we found the Hollow, me being the doubter thought this was to good to be true...Well, it is true, and every bit as pretty as the pictures.

We had a beautiful, peaceful and stress-free wedding at Butterfly Hollow - we would absolutely recommend it to anyone planning a small ceremony! Once we got to Butterfly Hollow on Friday night, we didn't want to leave, even to run into town to get food. The place was so calm and relaxing. The owners were friendly and available but also...

My wife and I went to the Hollow as a 6 year anniversay get away and had a wonderful time. It is a perfect place to get away, unwind and get back to the simpler things in life. David and Sharon were wonderful people and hosts. We hope to visit again in '08.

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
