Avans farm Retreat
Avans farm Retreat (615) 815-1304

Avans Farm is a place where you can escape your hectic city life and enjoy a taste of country living for a day or even a few days.

In the Fall we decorate our trails, offer hayrides, hot dog and marshmellow roasts for groups or individuals. This would be a great time to plan for a family or group outing while the temperatures are pleasant and the leaves are gorgeous.

The farm is nestled in the hills of Tennessee on 135 forested and pastured acres with 4.5 miles of clearly marked trails.

Butterfly Hollow Bed & Breakfast

Butterfly Hollow is a premier wedding venue nestled in Gordonsville that has been hosting gorgeous gatherings for over a year. Butterfly Hollow prides itself in its beautiful 82 acres equipped with a full bed and breakfast, hillside gazebo, floral garden, and rustic barn. Not to mention the amazing views of the Cumberland Plateau ridge, spring fed pond, and 3 miles of walking trails. This place truly has it all. It’s the perfect spot for an intimate, rustic, yet elegant wedding ceremony.

The folks at Butterfly Hollow can take care of your entire day with their “turn-key” packages or allow you to do all the planning with your own vendors. Want to do your own planning but don’t know where to start? No problem, they have a list of recommended vendors to narrow down your search. The bed and breakfast allows you to relax and enjoy the entire estate on your big day, and also provides lodging for your out of town guests or wedding party.

The convenience offered is unlike your typical venue. With only one wedding booked per day, you and your guests will have all 82 acres to yourself. Packages are available for weekdays and weekend events.
