This little farm, in our family since 1972, is surrounded by nice subdivisions, but feels very country. Our desire is to keep the property as original as possible. Bellevue is an upper scale suburb on the west side of Nashville.

Bring your car, but Uber and Lyft are available for nights on the town. We live on this property as well, so are usually available if you need anything. You can walk the 18 acres as long as you don't mind sharing the space with the horses. Property is very pretty, especially in spring/summer/fall, sit on the aggregate patio and watch the horses graze...

Apartment in is large barn on property. Finding the driveway at night can be tricky, please call or text us before arrival so we help you find the place.

You are welcome to pet the horses, but please let us know in advance for a quick safety instruction. No smoking please, the apartment is in a big barn!

We will be there if you need us, but respect your privacy. We will only enter the apartment if invited, by our request and your approval, or in case of emergency.

Directions to the farm: From I-40, exit 192 to McCrory Lane, go left (from Nashville) and right (from Memphis). Go about 2-3 miles to stop sign. Turn left, go about 1 mile down hill. Poplar Hollow Farm (8151 Poplar Creek Road) is on the right at bottom of hill, look for a weathered rustic sign that says Poplar Hollow Farm. Pull in the flat driveway, look for the big grey barn and pond on left. Go over low creek on left to big barn.

Pam Walden purchased this Barn in 1972

Why Pam Walden chose Bellevue

We inherited this property from my husbands mother who bought it in 1972. She ran a day camp here for kids for many years. It was a real family farm in the early days with raising and showing of Tennessee Walking Horses. Later the next generation rode, showed and cared for some quarter horses and walking horses. Many animals have made their way to the farm due to my mother in laws kind nature and desire to teach children about farm life. We currently have a rescued miniature horses on the property, Liza.

What makes this Barn unique

Sleeping in a converted barn in Nashville. Country comfort and Music City. Spend your day in the city and sight-seeing, then drive 15-20 minutes to a peaceful retreat. The barn is very cool, we lived in it ourselves for 3 years while building our new home on the hill. I keep the property clean, but we stop at major renovating just to ensure that we keep the old time feel of the property. Picnic table is a favorite spot to sit and drink your coffee/tea and watch the small pond for wildlife. Walk the 18 acres with the horses !

                                                          We enjoyed the weekend at Pam and wil’s place. The horses were very sweet and the barn was cozey. What I like is you feel like your out of town enough but then in reality your really close to some good restaurants and some grocery stores Incase you need to run out and get something. Definetally reccomend this to everyone!

                                                          Great Place

                                                          Lawrence C.

                                                          We really enjoyed staying at the barn and Pam was terrific.


                                                          Penny B.

                                                          We enjoyed our stay and your hospitality. It couldn't have been any better.

                                                          Very clean and original. I grew up on a farm and this stay really brought back memories.

                                                          Michael A.

                                                          The property was as advertised. Pam and her husband even took my daughter and 3 of my grandsons on a hayride around the pasture. There was a small problem with over booking but Pam went above and beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly and we were accommodated. Will stay with her again.

                                                          The property is amazing.

                                                          What a great place to stay, the property has so much charm and character. It includes everything you could need for the week. Pam was very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend to anyone.
