I can't say enough about the Estate at Cherokee Dock and their staff. We reserved the venue for the weekend and had both the rehearsal dinner as well as the ceremony on site. The bridal party and parents were able to spend the first night together with the bride and groom remaining at the Estate for their wedding night. The bridal party had a beautiful suite to dress in with amazing views of the lake while the groomsmen had their carriage house which kept them separate from the bridesmaids. The grounds were exquisite and provided a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. The reception was held in the new event center and even with cool temperatures we were able to open the roll-up doors for a beautiful view of the lake at sunset. Kevin and Kelly were the best! They worked with us every step of the way to make for a memorable and absolutely perfect wedding!
This place is absolutely breathtaking! The mansion itself is a stellar landmark in the center of this property. However, it's just one of the many beauties of this remarkable property. Situated on the Cumberland River just across the Wilson county line, the property offers many amenities. There is a lovely pool next to the mansion and a very large "social gathering" hall that has full length windows so guests can see the beauty of the river and surrounding areas. I was there to officiate a wedding a couple of weeks ago and was amazed by the natural surroundings, the scenic views and the upscale furnishings of The Estate. I highly recommend for your wedding or corporate event.
My fiance and I had been looking for a place to capture our engagement photos & my best friend showed me her 'dream wedding venue' and I immediately reached out to the Estate. Needless, to say it is an actual dream come true! It is so beautiful & Kevin McCarthy was so kind to go out of his way to set up a time and date after a wedding fulfilled weekend in the fall! He was so accommodating to us and our amazing photographer, he made us feel right at home!
The drive up to the Estate with the trees and lights was something from a movie & we LOVED spending time by the water and had so many different background ideas for the most beautiful pictures.
We are so grateful we found this place, highly recommend for a Wedding Venue or Engagement Photos!
Had an amazing experience with the Cherokee Dock. Great staff! Kelly and Kevin went above and beyond for our wedding day!! Made us feel super calm and helped us with anything to make our day as easy as possible!!! Will definitely come back in the future.
The Estate at Cherokee Dock is much more than the perfect wedding venue. We recently hosted my daughter's wedding and reception at The Estate. Megan, Kevin and Kelly are super to work with. They truly went above and beyond to make our stay and our events perfect. They even made sure the weather was great! Our families came from all over the U.S. and the U.K. and everyone was extremely impressed. From the moment we walked into the property they made us feel right at home. The Estate will always have a special place in our hearts.
The Estate at Cherokee Dock was the absolute dream come true wedding venue, I wish I could give them a 4.5 because we started a bit rocky with some structures that were said to be done at a certain time, but were not completed or would not be completed in time for our wedding, but besides that, the staff were extremely accommodating and receptive to all our crazy ideas. Even when they told us the structure wouldn't be ready in time, the staff at ECD were able to make adjustments to make our wedding picture perfect. I would highly recommend all brides to consider this as a place for their wedding. It was a once in a lifetime, absolutely gorgeous, event.
I can't say enough great things about The Estate at Cherokee Dock!
We ( Laurie D'Anne Events) produced a 300 person wedding there this weekend. Daniel and Aryn were so helpful and supportive, helping to every make everything flow seamlessly. Any challenges that we can up against they were right there to help any way they could. The clients were over the moon with this wedding weekend!
The house is stunning in an of itself, and the grounds are breathtaking. It was a pleasure to work in a space where excellence and hospitality to us as the event planners, staff and the clients was of the utmost importance.
We are looking forward to producing many, many more event at this venue.
Special thanks to the team at Cherokee Dock!

Our family had a wonderful weekend birthday celebration at The Estate at Cherokee Dock in June. The property was peaceful and extremely well maintained. Enjoyed the various outdoor spaces (pool, yard, dock, hammocks) as much as the beautiful well equipped house. We hired a tour boat (recommended by Cherokee Dock staff) which was able to dock and pick us up right at the property. Don't forget to bring a cooler for a perfect day on the water. Thought naming the bedroom suites after country music legends was a great idea. We stayed in the Loretta Lynn bedroom suite. Looking forward to a return visit.
My wife and I toured the Estate in November and the property is fabulous! The wrought iron gate at the road and the tree-lined drive to the estate is very romantic. We are planning to reserve the house for a family retreat. It’s a beautiful location and the house is perfect! Each room is private with great views of the river. We enjoyed learning the history of the property too.
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!
We recently spent the weekend at this gem to celebrate our sons wedding. My husband and I (and our family) enjoyed every aspect of the estate. From the stables, pool, hot tub, grounds and house, it’s incomparable to any other venue, anywhere!
We were able to host rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception to Sunday brunch, all in one gorgeous setting.
We loved our time at the Estate at Cherokee Dock and will always think back on our weekend there fondly.
Daniel and Aryn work tirelessly to make everything just right.
A true gem!!
We visited the Estate as part of a wedding venue search in Nashville. By far and away, this is the best venue in Nashville with amazing facilities and scenic backdrops all around the grounds. There is enough rooms that the whole wedding party can stay onsite for the weekend. I can t wait to see the permanent event pavilion...although the rented space is pretty nice as it is. I really like they are nice bathroom facilities that ensure a five star event no matter where you go.
We had the most amazing day with you guys!! Kevin and Kelly are both such awesome people!! Kevin definitely went above and beyond to make sure our day was absolutely perfect!! Thank you guys so much for everything! This day will definitely be our most memorable moment of our lives! 💕💕read more
There are not enough stars to rate this PERFECT & STUNNING Venue! The Directors, Kelly & Kevin, are AMAZING...so attentive & eager to please! Such a fabulous concept in having the venue for the entire weekend. We were able to have the rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception & Sunday Brunch all in one location, but each had their own “special feel” since their are so many options throughout the property to host different events. Another PLUS...The entire wedding party was able to stay on property with fabulous amenities and be together the entire weekend! Our guests could not quit RAVING! Thank you for giving our daughter and son-in-law the wedding of their dreams!!read more

Beautiful sicil it I excellent manicured grounds the staff is very helpful and on site the entire night. Large catering kitchen, 2 beautiful marble built and bars inside the house and pool house, Amazing venue for events highly recommend it!!!!read more
I just returned from a 3 day stay and it was amazing. Just being in the home and enjoying its luxury amenities can't help but make you feel like a "rock star." The outside pool was warm and inviting. It has fantastic gym facilities that can be screened in so you can enjoy a view of the river and some fresh air while working out.
An unexpected treat was the luxurious movie theatre complete with Popcorn, treats and oversized recliners that were better than any movie theatre. I was visiting with a friend and we found ourselves going back in time in the Arcade room as we played numerous games including Pac Man and a wall-size connect four. (The TV sound was a little tricky, but we figured it out) They discreetly post directions all over the house so you can figure stuff out.
There was some construction happening adjacent to the house, but it didn't disturb us. It looks like they are building an amazing reception facility with a covered deck that overlooks the river. We did get a peak into some of the other facilities around the grounds and they were just as nice as the main house. I could easily live in the stables.
Bottom line: Loved staying in the house, but if you were going to have a wedding....there is no better place.read more
I had my wedding at Cherokee Dock almost a month ago and I can't stop thinking about the weekend. The Estate is incredible- beautiful, clean, well-kept, and spacious. My favorite part of it all was that we could stay all weekend! Having my and my husband's families out of town, it made the Estate even more appealing that we could all be together all weekend. Have your wedding WEEKEND here! It will be the best weekend of your life- it was for me 🙂read more
Incredible place. The home is beautiful, Daniel and Erin are incredible, everything there was just perfect. I can not say enough good things about this place. Thank you for letting me be a small part of your “Country Christmas “! Looking forward to next year!
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
We had an opportunity to tour this amazing venue during the CMA's. This venue is perfect for weddings, fundraisers, family events and so much more! Everything is done with the highest quality! You won't be disappointed if you book this for any of your event needs!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
WOW!!! Being at the Estate made our recent trip to the CMA's even more wonderful. The mansion and grounds are beyond beautiful. To think that this was Reba McEntire's home is so cool. Hope to be back in the Spring.read more
I highly recccomend booking the Estate at Cherokee Dock for any special event, including weddings & receptions. The buildings and grounds are magnificent and in pristeen condition. There are so many bedrooms & amazing bathrooms that the entire wedding party could easily be accomodated. You truly have to see it to believe it; the place is phenomenal!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

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
I have known the owner of The Estate at Cherokee Dock for many years and he is a smart businessman and a good friend. I am certain you will be treated graciously and any event there will be absolutely beautiful!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
