1) The Kentucky Castle

Who needs Europe? You can sleep like royalty in this castle, located about 3 hours from Nashville.

A 3-hour drive south and you run into Ross Bridge Golf Resort and Spa in Birmingham, Alabama. This location really gives you the best of all worlds. If you want the city night life, you've got it. If you want secluded and private, you've got it. If you need luxury and relaxation, you've got it. The resort is Marriott-owned, offers the third-longest golf course IN THE WORLD, and has an Aveda Spa!!!

3)  Williamswood Castle

This medieval-style estate is located 10 minutes from downtown Knoxville. Listed on Airbnb, it can accommodate up to 6 guests. The owner touts some of these highlights: 500 feet of riverfront, a massive multi-level deck overlooking the river, and ponds, gardens, and forests. Can you imagine having a castle and its grounds all to yourself for the weekend?

How about a BONUS castle? (because I like to over-deliver)

4) Biltmore Estate

Located about 4.5 hours from Nashville, the Biltmore Estate  provides a luxurious romantic getaway! And while you can't stay in the actual Biltmore house, you can stay on the grounds of the estate in one of their adjacent properties. There is a charming village and winery where COMPLIMENTARY tasting is a MUST! Outdoor activities also abound here: horseback riding, fly-fishing, river floats, and carriage rides are just a few! Stay on the estate for the entire weekend or venture out into the eclectic city of Asheville for some city fun!
