Falcon Manor Bed & Breakfast – your place to stay in McMinnville, Tenn.

Extend your visit to McMinnville with a stay at Falcon Manor Bed & Breakfast, the four bed and breakfast style guest suites on the grounds of Falcon Rest Mansion. 

Clay Faulkner named his mansion “Falcon Rest,” and “restful” is an appropriate description of Falcon Manor, the overnight accommodations on the mansion’s grounds.  All the suites are located close enough to Falcon Rest’s dining, shopping and tour facilities for convenience, but far enough away from those areas and from each other to allow an extra degree of privacy.

Though in a peaceful country setting, Falcon Manor is just minutes from downtown McMinnville.  It’s near Cumberland Caverns and Rock Island and Fall Creek Falls State Parks.

In fact, Falcon Manor Bed & Breakfast’s central location between Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville makes it an ideal base for any Middle Tennessee vacation.

Guest rooms are available seven nights a week, though mansion tours are only available by appointment Mondays and Tuesdays.

See the property map for locations of guest rooms. Check availability.

The antiques and decor of the suites reflect those of the mansion itself, but – following Clay Faulkner’s example – they’re equipped with all the “modern conveniences” …
