In 1896, Gorilla Pants manufacturer Clay Faulkner built his family a Victorian mansion called Falcon Rest, which today is a historic tour museum. Falcon Manor, four bed-and-breakfast type guest suites on the its grounds, allows visitors to relive the elegance of yesterday in the comfort of today. They are favorite getaways for honeymooners and couples celebrating birthdays or wedding anniversaries. Of course, for lots of other folks, a simple retreat alone together is a special occasion all its own. All the guest 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. 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" -- private baths, telephones with free local calls, TV with 150 channels, individual heat and air controls, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, coffee pots (by request in some rooms). We offer free high-speed internet access in all rooms except the Honeymoon Suite (we figure you'll have other things on your mind there!). Full gourmet breakfasts are included in the room rate, and sumptuous dinners are available on Friday and Saturday nights by reservation. Though in a peaceful country setting, Falcon Manor is just minutes from downtown McMinnville. Its central location between Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville makes it an ideal base for a Middle Tennessee vacation.
