Away But In Touch - Corporate or Board Retreat, Reunion, Church Retreat
Getting away from the rush and pressures of the daily routine is essential to clear thinking whether you're the CEO needing to solve a problem or the board of directors needing privacy to focus on strategic planning. All the great thinkers of the world sought solitude to do their work. Come to the country and work on your great thoughts!
The Executive Conference Center at Parish Patch is tucked away in the peaceful privacy of a 230 acre working farm in the hills of middle Tennessee just 60 miles from Nashville. Meet in the Executive Conference Center with a classroom set up for 60 or circle the leather chairs in the Great Room for an informal team building session by the fireplace. Send a break out group to the Inn's Patio Room or find the hammock to be alone with your thoughts. For the really important sessions meet around the executive board table. Tell us to hold calls from your office or stay in touch by email, fax, phone, or the internet.
You won't have to leave the comforts of home when you retreat to Parish Patch. Our 21 bedrooms are furnished with plush beds, fine antiques, private baths, telephones, televisions, and running water!
Start your day with a full country breakfast that is included in our room rates. For lunch have a fried chicken boxed lunch in your meeting room or graze at a deli bar in the Inn Dining Room. For dinner we suggest fine dining at our historic Cortner Mill Restaurant here on the farm. Whether you choose Cornish game hen, baked trout, or T-bone steak from cattle we raise, you will find a fabulous wine from our cellar to complement it.
Satisfied Executives "Everyone was complimentary of not only the beautiful location, but the extra efforts put forth by Johnnie and David. Your attention to detail and the seclusion of your facility make it a perfect location for our marketing planning meeting. We look forward to our next opportunity to be your guests."

"I think we were wise to go on this retreat, because it was the only way to really get time to write. I think it gave us a head start and the writing flowed more freely. We were ready to record again, to get some more music down on disc, because we wrote so much."
Martie Seidel - Dixie Chicks - CMA Album of the Year, 6 million sold
Take the afternoon off for some recreation! Without leaving the property you can jog or hike for miles, swim, fish for trout, plan a game of volleyball, horseshoes, badminton, or cards. Golf at one of seven courses within 30 minutes. For the evening we can help arrange entertainment from musicians to storytellers!
