The Estate at Cherokee Dock

Wedding Venue and Event Space

About Us

Originally built in 1960, the nearly 13,000 sq ft Southern Colonial home in Lebanon, Tennessee, is most widely recognized as the former home of award-winning artist, actor, and author, Reba McEntire.

It has undergone several renovations and additions over the years, and now includes 13 acres of private property, an eight-car garage, luxury stable, guest house, pool, and a covered outdoor event center that will hold 500 people (coming summer 2019). All while being positioned on scenic lakefront views.

Located just a 35 minute drive from the heart of downtown Nashville, you are able to absorb the peace and serenity of the Tennessee countryside, and still have the option to enjoy the nightlife of Music City.

This venue is truly amazing! They hosted our company Christmas party last night and did an outstanding job. The quality of service combined with such a stunning property make for a winning combination. Every guest thoroughly enjoyed the night. It was such a special evening, and I can’t compliment and thank the staff and vendors of the Estate enough for taking such great care of us.read more

The children’s Christmas event was so well done. Santa with real reindeer, a hot chocolate bar with candy canes, a play area for the kids, a sled to take pictures in and Christmas music in the beautiful heated stables. Very charming. I highly recommend it!read more

I had the opportunity to tour this amazing property and the gorgeous buildings. The home is massive but cozy and everything that surrounds it is so quaint. The amount of room to accommodate lots of people is endless. The stables are something directly out of a Christmas movie. What a treat it would be to host an event or even a family reunion at this exceptional venue.read more

The Estate at Cherokee Dock has it ALL! I am an event planner, and it checks every single box for aesthetics and functionality. The moment the gates open, you experience the WOW factor. There are multiple ceremony locations, multiple cocktail locations, and multiple reception options-and they are ALL stunning! However, it can function for events far beyond weddings! Family reunions, class reunions, music videos, workshops, weddings…you name it-the possibilities are endless. The Nashville area has never had a high-end property like this. They are raising the bar with this venue! The bridal suite, the groom’s quarters, the pool, the lakeside, the trees, the house… everything is perfect. I never feel cramped or confined during events here. It’s the quintessential Southern property for any event. I LOVE this venue and what they have done with it. Did I mention they are building a new structure for receptions that will be spectacular? The property has plenty of parking, amazing security, a huge catering kitchen, spacious load in/load out options for vendors and their bathrooms are even top notch! This property is meticulously well maintained. The Venue Directors, Daniel and Aryn are hands down the best team to work with. Both really understand what it takes to make events run smoothly. They are well-informed and are knowledgeable about the property, the options, and the industry. They are quick to respond and want to make sure you have the best experience possible. With this property, you get an experience instead of just a venue. If you are searching for a venue-this is everything you are looking for and more!read more

Let me start off by saying, the property is absolutely gorgeous! There are a number of places that you can select for your ceremony site to truly give you the ceremony you're looking for. It's also a fantastic place to get those dreamy wedding photos and incredible wedding video. The bridal suite had TONS of natural light and the entire mansion is to die for. Last, but certainly not least, the staff is incredibly accommodating. They do whatever needs to be done to ensure you have the wedding you've always wanted and they're all so friendly! You definitely can't go wrong with The Estate at Cherokee Dock!read more

Attended an event at the Estate yesterday. It is a phenomenal venue that lends itself well to all types of events! A wedding would be absolutely gorgeous there. A retreat of any kind would be awesome as well. The event I attended was a fundraiser, and it was amazing! The grounds are great for anything (the kids' zone and food trucks were there for this event), the tent out back was perfect for the band and dancing, and the stables were where the auction items were located. The possibilities this venue offers are limitless! I highly recommend The Estate at Cherokee Dock if you are looking for a unique location offering lots of options.read more

There aren’t enough stars to say how much we loved this place! We stayed at the Estate for 3 days last weekend when we got married and it was an experience for us AND our friends/family that we will remember forever! From the moment we visited this place we stopped our wedding venue hunt. We knew it was a special place. Unique and unlike any other place in Tennessee. (No hit on anyone but we aren’t barn wedding folks). Daniel and Aryn went above and beyond with every little detail already thought of for us. From the time of booking to the day of the wedding, they communicated with us well and were responsive to our questions in a timely manner. My wedding planner and all vendors I chose loved working with them. There was plenty of room for our wedding party of around 16 people to stay comfortably. And they loved the themed rooms (Cash, Dolly, Garth...). Guests were raving about the place during the wedding, and overnight guests said it was the best wedding experience they’ve ever been part of. We were thankful to have the tent already set up for us because there were a couple rain showers that had we not planned for could have put a real damper on the day. The grounds are flawlessly beautiful. And the lake view is spectacular. I would highly recommend booking your event here, it will be an event of a lifetime!read more

The most AMAZING venue on the outside of Nashville, TN with the most perfect home for a 3 day event! Host your wedding, retreat, family reunion, etc. The property is breathtaking and perfectly landscaped with the perfect pool in the backyard. We had the most perfect experience doing a large Indian wedding here and LOVED Daniel and Aryn; they go ABOVE and Beyond to make everyone happy. Check it out!! Making unforgettable Memories!read more

Music is way to loud for the residents who live in area. It goes on till after 10:30. Police have to called. Law enforcement had to stop the disturbance. Calls made to the event center go unnoticed. This is not a place for an outside loud night event.read more
