Want to live like Southern royalty? From its Antebellum columns to its picture-perfect views of Old Hickory Lake, this expansive mansion in Lebanon, Tennessee, is a dream retreat. And to sweeten the deal, this elegant abode was once the home of Reba McEntire, the true Queen of Country.
This 12,816-square-foot lakefront home (known as The Estate at Cherokee Dock) comes with a dock for lake access that’s perfect for summer fun. With eight bedrooms and seven baths, Reba’s old house can fit your whole crew and then some. It also sports plenty of built-in options for entertainment, including a theater, wine room, outdoor pool, and spa.
All that space means this place is perfect for events like weddings and galas, too. Throw your soiree in the estate’s gardens or on the pool deck, get some country music going on the speakers, and relax around the fire pit with a little rosé. You can also lounge on one of the two private balconies and catch a glimpse of the sunset reflected on the lake.
If you’re done with living the easy life on this posh estate’s grounds, venture out to Nashville. It’s only a 30-minute drive away. While you’re there, you can pay a visit to the legendary Grand Ole Opry or check out more of the genre’s greats at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. While you’re in that neck of the woods, don’t forget to try some of Nashville’s famous hot chicken.
Even though this massive estate rents for a whopping $2,958 per night on average on Vrbo, it books up fast. So gather up your bunch, make your plans, and organize a shindig to remember. It sleeps 16, so that comes down to about $190 a head per night.
