Rock Castle, original home of the Smith’s, has 18 beautiful acres and provides the perfect private outdoor location for your special day. We are one of the very few waterfront venues in Middle Tennessee providing stunning views of Old Hickory lake especially at sunset. Romance is not new here, in 1796 General Daniel & Sarah’s only daughter Mary Ann (Polly) eloped through her bedroom window with the help of Old Hickory himself, Andrew Jackson and her intended Samuel Donelson (Rachel Jackson’s favorite brother)! Our site offers a convenient Visitor Center that has both a large bride's as well as a groom's room for dressing.
We are now offering interior rentals or small weddings of 40 people or less. Contact us to learn more about our elopement packages. As part of all rentals, you may have portraits within the interior hallway of the Castle. Call or stop by and explore for yourself the possibilities of your Wedding at Rock Castle!

Jess was amazing to work with and helped make everything so relaxed! We loved the venue because it was close by, directly on the lake, and it had the pavilion! We had our ceremony under the pavilion, and then the reception down by the lake under a tent we rented from Ultimate (they were great to work with too!). Rock Castle was the perfect natural and woodsy look without being a barn venue, and we loved it the minute we toured! Great value for the money, and it goes to continue preserving the historical property for others to enjoy it!Sent on 05/27/2018

What a beautiful place to get married! Historic rock castle works hand in hand with grand central party rentals when booking your event. Absolutely everyone we worked with was so kind, flexible, welcoming, and helpful. Our wedding was perfect because of the help that rock castle gave us in using there venue and connecting is with vendors through grand central. The staff was very flexible and even allowed us to go over our contracted time with rehearsals when we were running behind. I would highly recommend this venue.Sent on 06/10/2015

Historic Rock Castle was such a perfect choice for our wedding and reception. Everyone there was so nice and easy to work with! We ended up tenting our reception to the left of out house right along the water and it was so beautiful! Our guests were able to take pictures and socialize right next to the water with a setting sun. Such a gorgeous and affordable choice for an outdoor wedding.Sent on 06/08/2015
