Where To Stay, What To Do

Check out our recs for where to stay and where to visit.

Lodging Options

Hampton or Something More Local?

It’s your call!

Brand New Hampton Inn

We have a block of rooms in the nearby Berry Farms neighborhood, this is a 20 min drive from the wedding venue. Must book by June 10, 2021 to get the special rate.

Rent a House on AirBnB

Search near College Grove to stay close to the venue at Battle Mountain Farm or stay in nearby Franklin for something more walkable and charming (that’s what we’d do).

We will not be providing travel to and from the wedding. Please plan accordingly

Take in some Tennessee

Our Favorite Areas & Establishments

During your free time on Friday and Saturday, we suggest you enjoy a bit of middle Tennessee! Below are some of the bride and grooms favorite spots.


Daytime Excursions: Stroll down Main Street for some shopping and a bit to eat. Some of our favorite spots are Puckett’s, Meridees Breadbasket (you’ve gotta get a chess square!) and the antique shops near 3rd and S. Margin St.

Evening: Kimbros Pickin Parlor is KC’s fave bar in town — there’s also a record shop right next door called Carpe Diem that is a GEM.

Meridees Breadbasket

An all-time favorite of the Burch fam for pastries and treats and casual lunches.

Kimbros Pickin Parlor

The name alone tells you pretty much all you need to know. This house converted into music venue / bar is a great place to house a few pints and tell a few stories. Or make some.

Frothy Monkey

Stop one of any trip to Franklin. Great coffee and everything else. Fun fact, you can get Frothy Monkey coffee in Oak Park and Wicker Park at Fairgrounds Coffee.

Street Shopping

Main Street from 3rd to 5th is pretty much wall to wall shops. Don’t worry, there’s a few places to pop in for a cold one too (or instead).


If you can’t make it to the Puckett’s in Leipers Fork, give it a visit in Franklin. On Kurt’s first visit down to TN, this is where he and Rachel had dinner together after Rachel showed him around town.

Carnton Plantation & Cater House

Stop by or schedule a tour at Carnton Plantation & Cater House – it’s a one-two punch of civil war history that you won’t regret.


If you’re going to venture up to Music City, we recommend staying out of the tourist trap and hitting some gems. Here are our recs by neighborhood..

Neighborhoods Guide

East Nashville

Grab a drink at Dino’s. It’s the kind of dive bar you’d hang out in if you were an actual Nashville musician. The Pharmacy has a huge patio and great burgs. Head to Five Points if you want hit a few bars ranging from drafts to cocktails. The Wicker Park of Nashville.

12 South

You MUST get a Five Daughters Bakery 100 layer donut — we recommend a classic vanilla or maple. There are a handful of great bars and restaurants, all walkable in the area. Also, you can say you saw Dolly Parton’s Studio.


If you’re gonna hit the strip at night, Robert’s is the spot for live music and vibes that still ring true, regardless of the tourists. If you’re brewery hopping, be sure and hit up Jackelope, one of Nash’s best breweries that also happens to be female owned and founded. A flight at Yazoo wouldn’t hurt either though.

Leipers Fork

Everything you would want from a tiny little stretch of road out in the country. Park your car in the lot near Joeseph Street (or on the road) and work your way down to the otherside until you hit David’s Arms Gallery.

Small town, artistic, country vibes. Likely best for a daytime excursion.

Check Out This List Too

Leipers Fork Distillery

A small operation just outside of town. Enjoy a whiskey on the porch and throw some bags in the yard. They also do tours.

Music at Pucketts

Another Pucketts!? That’s right. This is the OG and is THE PLACE if you’re looking for a classic meat and three served up alongside some live music every day of the week.

Local Artist Shops

It’s really what you do when you go to Leipers Fork, you take a lap. There are lots of shops, indoor and outdoor selling antiques to artwork. The Copper Fox has some really interesting hand-made stuff.

Props Antiques

Usually a decent selection of antiques outside on the lawn and a food truck and coffee vendor to fuel you up for the rest of the street.

The Country Boy

Made from scratch food in a no frills setting. If a you’re looking for a country fried breakfast situation with a side of greens, look no further. Ask the bride’s family about the legendary 50th birthday party Cobra had downstairs.
