Faulkner named his mansion "Falcon Rest," and "restful"
is an appropriate description of Falcon Manor, the four bed
and breakfast guest suites on the mansion's grounds.
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.
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.
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

with free local calls
with music and movie channels
heat and air controls
and ironing boards
pots, microwaves, and compact refrigerators
gourmet breakfasts are included in the room rate, and sumptuous
dinners are available on Friday and Saturday nights
Advance reservations suggested; last-minute inquiries
All rooms subject to 9-3/4% sales tax. Rates are for one
