About the property

Chateau / Country House, 4+ Bedrooms (See Description), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Welcome to our quiet peaceful country home nestled in the Dry Creek valley in Middle Tennessee.

Private and cozy with all the comforts of your home away from home.

The gurgling “Dry Creek” has water year around to attract children (and adults!) of all ages.

Acres of woods, rock bluffs, hills, and caves for exploring.

Our secluded country roads are also great for leisure walking, jogging and biking.

Center Hill Lake is 8 miles away for fishing, boating, and water sports.

Cumberland Caverns is a half hour scenic drive away.

Every 4th of July week end Smithville hosts the famous Fiddlers Jamboree and Crafts festival.

Nashville Music City USA , home of the Grand Ole Opry is just 55 miles away.

Step back in time and relax in a rocking chair on the veranda and reminisce what life may have been like as you read the history of “The Old Mill at Dry Creek” and observe the 16’ overshot waterwheel, the gears, and the grinding stone.

At the end of your fun-filled day, relax around the campfire on the creek bank and swap family stories, or in quiet contemplation observe the evening stars.

Old Mill at Dry Creek

  • 5 of 5

My family visited The Old Mill to celebrate our family Christmas. This was our 4th visit and as always, thoroughly enjoyed our time there. There is plenty of room for 20 of us with suites for families (2) and four other sleeping areas. The kitchen is well appointed and the eating area is large. The children all enjoyed the creek, hiking in the area, feeding the fish and exploring the cave. Cassie Brandon was attentive to our needs and very helpful. We will be back as a family again soon.

Fantastic Thanksgiving Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

As a blended family(aka Brady bunch), we try to get everyone together for our "Gathering of the Tribes" periodically . This allows everyone to reconnect and catch up with each other. This year the "tribes" assembled at the Old Mill at Dry Creek. All 22 of us ( ages 5 mos to 73) arrived on Wednesday for a truly unique thanksgiving experience! From the old mill house to the cave on the property, the old mill exceeded expectations in every way. Cassie was fantastic and went out of her way to make sure our stay was enjoyable! From the daring adventures to the cave, afternoons on the porch visiting and reminiscing, football games in the yard, to the sing alongside and board games in the evening, this was everything Grandpa hoped it would be! And one of the teenagers commented on the fact that it was great not having the internet as a distraction!

Great place,great people, great weekend

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this location to celebrate my parents 60th wedding anniversary. We had a group of 14, but had plenty of room to spread out. The location is perfect, just far enough out of Nashville to feel like a get-away, but not so far that it took a long time to get there. The house is huge and has plenty of amenities. The kitchen is quite large and has everything you could need. The cave is a lot of fun, and not claustrophobic. The creek and landscaping are beautiful. I was impressed with the accommodations for children. There are two areas with toys for varying age groups, as well as beds for young ones. We will definitely stay here again!
