Special Occasion Venue Rental In Tennessee
When it comes to a truly exceptional occasion, only a particular type of venue is appropriate. So when you’ve got something important to celebrate, consider the graceful beauty of a restored historic manor set in the magnificent Tennessee mountains -- the renowned Moffitt Manor of Altamont, TN, is the perfect place to commemorate your special occasion.
What comes with the Special Occasion Rental?
The Special Occasion Rental includes five options :
- Estate Rental - One Day

Choose to stay from one to five full days at Moffitt Manor, which comfortably sleeps up to twelve guests. The estate includes six fully-furnished bedrooms, a completely renovated kitchen with all the necessary appliances, two and three-quarters bathrooms, a library, and three stunning parlors with large televisions.
What’s more? There’s also a rustic log cabin in the back, which was formerly used as a honeymoon cabin and courthouse. The log cabin has its own kitchen, living area, and bathroom, as well. One or all of these settings are sure to be ideal for a photo session commemorating your special occasion, too. Check our list of professional photographers to book that when you’re ready.
If you wish to order home-cooked food delivered while you stay at the estate, there are options for that, too.

As your celebration winds down, you may wish to explore the outlying areas beyond Altamont...and you’ll be thrilled at all the activities and events you find! Take a moment to consider a few of our favorites below, for your visit-planning convenience:
Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration Grounds
Every summer, for eleven days, there’s an annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville. Ending the Saturday night before Labor Day, the celebration is attended by up to 250,000 admiring fans of the Tennessee Walking Horse breed -- and it’s the largest show nationally of the Walking Horse. The ceremony has been held every year since 1939.
If you work up an appetite strolling the streets of dazzling downtown Nashville (a bit less than two hours’ drive from the Manor), bring your hungry self over to the Treehouse. Lots of their own homegrown heirloom and organic produce are used on the menu, including such mouth-watering favorites as Yakitori veggie bowls, potato pancakes, and black-eyed pea hummus.
Also available are cold water oysters, sirloin bavette, shrimp cocktail, and seared red-tailed snapper. Thirsty? Wash it all down with a Wicked Weed IPA, Eastcider Pineapple Cider, or a glass of Pinot Noir. Street parking is free in front of the restaurant. Larger groups may want to call ahead for reservations at 615-454-4201 or book on Opentable.
When was the last time you attended a drive-in movie theater? Well, get ready -- we found another one for you, and they have showings for a very long season (their season finale isn’t until December 6th this year)! Settle in for a double feature of the best movies out and grab your choice of dinners, finger foods, cold and hot drinks, as well as the standard popcorn and candy at the concession stand. Be sure to read their website’s “General Information” page before heading over to make sure you’ll get there on time for the show. Watertown is about an hour and a half from the Manor.
Cheekwood Botanical Gardens
About an hour and 45 minutes’ drive from the Manor, you’ll find Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, an excellent spot to take in rows of gorgeous floral blooms. There’s also an art museum on-site that’s open all year. (If you find yourself here during the winter, take a drive through Cheekwood’s dazzling holiday lights at Christmastime -- you won’t be disappointed!).
