About Historic Travellers Rest

Historic Travellers Rest is a museum and wedding venue located in Nashville, Tennessee. This 8-acre property is surrounded by huge magnolia trees and includes a formal garden, an herb garden, a crib barn and large grassy meadows. Historic Travellers Rest is situated just a few miles outside of downtown Nashville, making it easily accessible from the city.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples can choose between outdoor ceremony sites as well as an indoor space that accommodates up to 150 guests. Those with larger celebrations can host as many as 250 loved ones with the addition of an outdoor tent. The couple of honor can exchange vows beneath mature trees against the backdrop of the main house or surrounded by white fencing. The exterior of the residence is characterized by tall, evenly spaced columns and balconies. For the reception, the newlyweds can guide loved ones into a spacious barn suitable for setting up a banquet and dancing. It is climate-controlled to keep guests feeling as comfortable as possible. The building also features a limestone fireplace, exposed beams, and large barn doors. Additionally, the venue contains get-ready rooms for the happy couple and their wedding party to use as they desire.

Services Offered

Historic Travellers Rest offers a wedding package that includes 11 hours of rental time. Each couple will have on-site parking for their guests, one hour of access to the property for photography prior to their special day, and a barn-cleaning before the event. Additionally, couples and their loved ones are granted access to the venue’s herb garden, barn, and grounds throughout the day. The professional staff at the venue can set up furniture for the ceremony and reception as an add-on service. The facility also allows outside vendors to help couples further customize the experience to reflect their vision. The team can provide a list of preferred vendors to help with this process. In addition to hosting couples’ wedding day, the experienced event staff at the venue can assist with a range of other important events. This includes engagement parties, showers, and rehearsal dinners.

    Beautiful Venue - with an amazing team!

    Travellers Rest is one of the most beautiful garden estate properties in Nashville and at an amazing value. The property has tons of gorgeous Magnolia trees, flowers, and tons of greenery. Plus it has tons of options as to how you can celebrate your big day! However, the best part of the venue really is the team. Mary Jo and her team out did themselves to help us with our wedding. Mary Jo really knows her stuff and ensured we had the best day ever. I cannot say thank you to enough to the Travellers Rest Team!

    I couldn't have picked a better venue for my fall Nashville-themed wedding. This is a great location tucked in a south Nashville neighborhood. The historic home made for beautiful photos, especially in October with the changing leaves. I can't say enough about June, the event manager there. She who walked me through the premises and helped with the arrangements from that end, and could not have been more responsive and helpful. She was always available for questions. We had the wedding on location, with the lovely double-porches behind us. There is a reception 'barn' on the premises, which is where we had the reception. There was plenty of free parking for guests. Our band set up on the porch during happy hour, and we hired one of the docents to give guests who were interested a tour of the historic home while the wedding party took photos. The reception location had plenty of room for a DJ, buffet line and sit-down and stand-up tables for guests. We had a tent outside of the reception area, and the reception spilled outside to offer even more space for guests. The grounds were so pretty, and a lot of the trees are up-lit, so even as the sun went down, there were lots of opportunities for terrific photos. If I were to get married again tomorrow (to the same guy, of course!), we would do it again at Travellers Rest. It's a great historic part of Nashville, and guests both from Nashville and out of state commented at what a perfect venue it was.

    Our daughter choose Travellers Rest for her wedding reception. We found the staff extremely polite and attentive. The venue is not only beautiful and interesting for our guests. IT is located VERY close to hotels and shopping.
