Southall Farm & Inn

Middle Tennessee’s luxurious farm retreat

Living off the land is a luxurious pursuit at Southall Farm & Inn. Nestled among more than 325 acres of rolling hills in Franklin, Tennessee — just 25 minutes south of Nashville — this eco-chic farm proudly shows off its roots, offering cuisine with produce grown on property and unspoiled views of Appalachia.

Opened in 2022, the Middle Tennessee getaway puts a modern spin on Southern hospitality, letting the property’s sense of place lead the way in its design, culinary offerings and activities. Everything on the farm-focused resort was created with the intention of keeping conservation and sustainability at the forefront of the experience. A seven-acre lake, for example, is a great spot for kayaking, canoeing and paddleboarding but was built to irrigate the orchard.

A destination in itself, Southall Farm & Inn is a bucolic retreat away from the outside world where the only traffic comes from the occasional staff golf cart.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Southall Farm & Inn is a farm retreat boasting a 2,000-tree orchard, hydroponic and traditional greenhouses, multiple gardens and even an apiary where millions of bees produce award-winning honey used at the hotel’s restaurants. Get hands-on with the farm’s activities, including garden tours, cooking demonstrations, honey tastings, apple picking, gardening classes, forest bathing and more.
  • For extra privacy, check into one of Southall Farm & Inn’s 16 hillside cottages, where intimate patios or wrap-around decks (complete with cozy swing beds) provide a lovely perch from which to soak up those gorgeous views.
  • Signature restaurant Sojourner’s seasonal menu highlights Southall Farm’s fresh produce in spectacular fashion. A summer-inspired menu, for example, might feature white rice pea dip with green peanut oil, a house-cured fennel salami, and a Tennessee strawberry tart sweetened with the farm’s honey.
  • Unwind in the 15,000-square-foot Spa at Southall. Indulgent treatments feature natural products from brands like Seed to Skin and Naturopathica alongside the farm’s own honey and herbs from the spa’s medicinal garden.
  • Embark on outdoor adventures like mountain biking, falconry and fishing or opt for alfresco relaxation in the form of sound bath meditation and morning hikes through the forest.

The Rooms

  • A 62-room inn features an appropriately rustic-chic aesthetic with exposed wood beams, nature-inspired artwork and picture windows that let in plenty of natural light.
  • Interiors by L.A.-based firm Indidesign use neutral tones with accents inspired by the Tennessee countryside — think grays, burnt oranges and deep emerald greens.
  • The cozy cottage-core design gets an upgrade with luxurious touches like spacious soaking tubs beneath large windows, open shelving and wood-burning fireplaces in select guest rooms.
