Welcome to The Estate at Cherokee Dock
The Estate at Cherokee Dock is Middle Tennessee’s premier event venue for those looking to host high-end events on some of the region’s most beautiful property.
The lakefront estate in Lebanon, Tennessee, is most widely recognized as the former home of award-winning artist, actor and author Reba McEntire, but today, The Estate at Cherokee Dock is a luxury event venue for elegant weddings, exquisite galas, corporate celebrations, private retreats, family reunions, charitable fundraisers and any other ceremonial events you can creatively conceptualize.
Built in 1960, The Estate at Cherokee Dock has enjoyed several renovations, additions and upgrades that have elevated the property to its current status: an 13-acre waterfront estate, complete with a 12,816-square-foot Southern colonial home, luxury stable, guest house, pool and well-appointed pool house.
Surrounded by Old Hickory Lake, this legendary estate offers expansive water views from almost every room. The thirteen acre property is within minutes to world-class spas, restaurants and entertainment.
The main house is spacious at over 12,000 square feet, yet the rooms are designed to provide a cozy and intimate ambiance. Five of the eight bedrooms in the main house are en suite with their own bath. The fully equipped gym even has stunning lake views. The estate boasts immaculate indoor entertaining spaces including, a theater, wine room, parlor, and separate family and formal living rooms.
The kitchen was designed with a chef in mind, thus professional quality: 10' island, 2 dishwashers, Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, 34” wide Wolf convection oven with separate warming drawer, 60” Wolf double convection oven and 6 burner gas range, grill and griddle.
The large back patio for outdoor entertaining provides magnificent views of the lake. The property includes a large heated pool with built-in lounging deck and spa surrounded by beautiful, lush gardens. Along with Sonos speakers, umbrellas, lounge chairs, outdoor dining table and a propane fire pit, it's the perfect place to relax in the sun listening to your favorite artists, enjoy breakfast as the sun comes up, or entertain guests for a truly spectacular gourmet dinner. The pool house includes separate bathrooms for ladies and gentlemen, swimsuit dryer, and a climate controlled bar/lounge area.
Two private balconies are complete with an outdoor sofa, dining tables and lounge chairs for relaxing and enjoying the view of the spectacular lake. The master balcony also is equipped with a stunning wood-burning fireplace.
The Estate is equipped with a private boat dock. A great spot for fishing, tying up your boat or charter.
