A Southern Gem! Southhall Farm & Inn, Luxury Meets Sustainable Farming
When most people think of middle Tennessee, the first thing that comes to mind is Nashville and Country Music. But as someone who once lived in this part of the country, we can say for a fact that the region has a great deal to offer. With that in mind, we are anxiously awaiting the opening of Southhall Farm and Inn nestled in the hills of middle Tennessee.

Whether it's a 2-week escape or a 2-day weekend getaway, we're here to make it happen.
Nestled in the lush rolling hills of Franklin, just 20-minutes outside of Nashville, South Hall Farm & Inn is a sweeping countryside enclave: this sustainable farm-based luxury resort is home to 325 acres of green that include an inn, Tennessee’s largest spa, two signature restaurants, and working farm.
Scheduled to open in December 2022, Southall offers a unique escape in a historic part of Middle Tennessee that reflects traditional Southern hospitality and honors the agricultural heritage of the area. A true haven of mind, soul, and body, the property is easily accessible from Nashville yet still feels perfectly removed and secluded.
The verdant estate includes a gorgeous 95,000 square-foot inn and spa designed with sustainable wood that provides an “inside-out” sensation throughout the property, with interior and exterior spaces that seem to flow seamlessly together. Everything at Southall is in perfect harmony with its surroundings, evoking a deep love of nature as well as the traditions and histories of the farming way of life, while also leaning into technological innovation and modern features and comforts, creating the perfect blend of old and new.
Along with the biodynamic working farm, the property will also include expansive apple orchards, an orangerie, greenhouses, a seasonal farm stand, and two gorgeous pools, one with a retractable roof that provides ample cover for guests, rain or shine.
With a deep connection to the soil and changing seasons, Southall celebrates the soul to seed movement. As they continue to expand their working farm, guests can enjoy freshly-made decadent honey, organic produce and freshly laid eggs from the chickens onsite.
Accommodations at Southall include 62 spacious guest rooms and suites and 16 separate cottages, all offering stunning panoramic views of rolling farmland, oversized soaking tubs, and separate seating areas. Many will also have fireplaces, adding even more coziness to the quaint country setting. The interior décor and artwork is chic, minimalist and modern, while the inn and cottages themselves reflect a classic farm house design, creating a perfect partnership of traditional and contemporary that is reflected throughout the entire property.
Tucked away among towering trees on a hardwood ridge, the cottages are the ultimate in privacy, exclusivity and luxury. Wake up to the sounds of the warbler birds chirping. The most secluded accommodations are the stilted Arbor Cottages, where you’ll feel like you’re camping in the treetops with floor-to-ceiling windows and large wrap-around porches.
Southall’s signature restaurant, Mary Amelia, offers a multi-course, farm-to-table cuisine experience. Chef Tyler Brown incorporates only seasonal ingredients that are grown and raised on site.
