Table Of Contents
Our private Walnut Hill Retreat sits in the rolling hills of Culleoka, Tennessee. The renovated 1908 Victorian house blends classic with contemporary. The spacious loft style living-room opens to a fully equipped kitchen. The west facing dining area provides a sunset view. The light filled kitchen has a wood burning stove for those chilly fall afternoons. The front porch views the smoky rolling hills. Observe wild deer and horses while enjoying morning coffee. The generous master bath is European styled with marble tile, whirlpool bath and glass shower. The rooms are furnished with a mix of antiques and artisan furniture.
Many songwriters have been inspired by Walnut Hill House as a music retreat. We have a piano in house and assorted instruments available for borrow. The peace and solitude on top of the hill with great views along with great acoustics make this an inspiring place to write. The house accommodates eight. We always provide breakfast but can be prevailed upon for a bologna sandwich or two if need be. There are a few hamburger places a short scenic drive away. The local diners and wineries make great venues to try out some new tunes. Please inquire about the extended stay packages available for writers.
We provide local produce and local farm fresh eggs when seasonally available. We are sensitive to your special dietary needs so if you prefer a gluten or dairy free breakfast, let us know. To set up your perfect breakfast, contact the innkeeper. Three Hills Farm provides Walnut Hill House with wild Honey and Grass Fed beef as well as farm to table produce in season. Don’t forget to try our fresh pesto, which is grown and made on our farm. Take some memories home, everything is available for purchase.
Walnut Hill House has a 10 stall barn and several paddocks available for those who travel with horses. There are rolling fields available for trail rides. We are currently making a 200’ x 75’ dressage arena. There are horse events nearby at Milky Way farms, Lynnville and Fayetteville.
