Southall Farm & Inn


Nestled in the lush rolling hills of Franklin, Tennessee, Southall Farm & Inn is a sweeping countryside enclave: this sustainable farm-based luxury resort is home to 325 acres of green that include an inn with 62 guest rooms and suites and 16 cottages, Tennessee's largest spa, two signature restaurants, and a working farm. Southall offers a unique escape that reflects traditional Southern hospitality and honors the agricultural heritage of the area.

The verdant estate includes a gorgeous 95,000 square-foot inn and spa designed with sustainable wood that provides an “inside-out” sensation throughout the property, with interior and exterior spaces that seem to flow seamlessly together. Everything at Southall is in perfect harmony with its surroundings, evoking a deep love of nature as well as the traditions and histories of the farming way of life. Along with the biodynamic working farm, the property will also include expansive apple orchards, an orangerie, greenhouses, a seasonal farm stand, and two gorgeous pools, one with a retractable roof that provides ample cover for guests, rain or shine.

Southall's signature restaurant, Mary Amelia, offers a multi-course, farm-to-table cuisine experience. The intimate dining room and panoramic outdoor patio provide an unforgettable setting while chef Tyler Brown prepares a dinner menu that incorporates the freshest of seasonal ingredients all grown and raised on site. At Sojourner, guests can enjoy breakfasts of homemade pastries and fresh-from-the-coop egg delicacies, along with lunches and casual dinners. There is also a menu of refreshing handcrafted cocktails infused with garden herbs and just-harvested fruits and vegetables.

The Spa is an impressive 15,000 square foot facility featuring a steam room, sauna, relaxation room, 10 individual treatment rooms and two couples suites, along with an all-season mineral pool. Holistic treatments and wellness activities such as hiking, yoga, and meditation are inspired by ancient healing therapies and provide guests a truly immersive experience in nature.

Guests can also enjoy adventure activities, including a high ropes course, archery, falconry, immersive farm and culinary tours, and over 5 miles of trails for hiking and biking. Activities on picturesque Lake Mishkin include fishing canoeing, kayaking, and standup paddle boarding. Southall is perfectly situated for guests to explore the nearby charming town of Franklin or drive 20-minutes to the heart of downtown Nashville. A true haven of mind, soul, and body, the property still feels perfectly removed and secluded.


Accommodations at Southall Farm & Inn include 62 spacious guest rooms and suites and 16 separate cottages, all offering stunning panoramic views of rolling farmland, oversized soaking tubs, and separate seating areas. Many will offer fireplaces, adding even more coziness to the quaint country setting. The interior décor and artwork is chic, minimalist and modern, while the inna and cottages themselves reflect a classic farm house design, creating a perfect partnership of traditional and contemporary that is reflected throughout the entire property. There are 47 Polk Rooms (494-550 square feet), 12 Cumberland Rooms (604-616 square feet), 2 Caney Fork Suites (1,224 square feet), and 1 Tennessee Suite (1,529 square feet).

Tucked away among towering trees on a hardwood ridge, the Hilltop and Arbor cottages are the ultimate in privacy, exclusivity and luxury. The Hilltop cottages offer one and two bedroom options. The most secluded accommodations, ideal for couples, are the stilted Arbor Cottages, where you’ll feel like you’re camping in the treetops with floor-to-ceiling windows, swinging bed, and large wrap-around porches. There are 7 Arbor Cottages (564 square feet) and 9 Hillside Cottages (837-1,747 square feet).
