Stroll to the old tobacco barn on one end of the property or the tenant house on the other. Listen closely over the birds and crickets to the voices of the past welcome our 7th President (Andrew Jackson), debate Emancipation, mumur in awe of the sight of the first "mechanical" horse carriage or welcome their son back from the World War.

About Denise Tabscott
Chris and Denise met at the University of Central Florida and have been married 20 years. We moved to TN in 1999 and fell in love with the area. We have raised our 3 kids here and currently live in the Middle Tennessee area.
Denise Tabscott purchased this Farmhouse in 2015
Why Denise Tabscott chose Culleoka
We love the country and historic homes and looked for years for a property like this. When we found this property we fell in love with it and look forward to retiring there. We often come for relaxing weekends and vacations and love unplugging and unwinding and being in the middle of nature. Life tends to slow down when you are at the Historic Hideaway and we can't wait to share that experience with our guests.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Make sure to pull up a lawn chair in the back yard in the summertime and watch the millions of fireflies dance in the twilight during the summer months. This house was built with a breezeway effect so to cool down open the front door and pull down the screen and open the back door and allow the cool breeze to come through the house.

We enjoyed staying, the house is beautiful!
It is a beautiful home and property. We are already planning to visit again.
This was the most relaxing and enjoyable retreat I've had in years!
The house is lovely and the setting is so serene and picturesque. We loved listening to crickets and night birds and the sound of soft rain while sitting on the cozy porch. We came for a writing retreat - trying to get away from the city and focus on deadlines for a project. But the peace of this place just made it so easy to rest and the creative energy flowed easily. We would love to return.
And our hosts were just as helpful as can be - they had everything we could need or want to feel comfortable and welcome!

Just Like Home
We absolutely enjoyed our time at the 1828 historic home. It was everything you would expect , plus so much more. There was a little bit of everything in the house. And we loved the library wall. So much information on Tennesse , Civil War History Etc. We felt very relaxed, comfortable and at home. The surrounding area was very beautiful. Easy to get to and anything you would like to do in the Nashville area was a short drive away! We will definitely be back, hopefully sooner than later!
