If you're looking for an impressive place to hold a meeting or a corporate retreat, consider heading over to Cumberland Furnace.

Drouillard House Event Space

The tiny Dickson County community is home to the long-standing Drouillard House Retreat and Conference Center, which features a Victorian-style mansion and four modern cabins that have a total of 12 bedrooms. The spacious property on Old Highway 48 North is an ideal setting for workshops, training sessions, company seminars or organizational retreats.

Peace & Tranquility

The tranquil setting and comfortable accommodations are inviting for groups of up to 43 people for overnight stays; the facility can accommodate up to 50 guests for meetings and seminars. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are prepared each day in the historic mansion, and every meal is served buffet-style on the porch, if the weather permits.

The house sits peacefully in the midst of an abundance of oak and fir trees, and the property's amenities include shuttered windows, a widow's walk and a spacious wrap-around porch. The mansion has five guest rooms, and each is furnished in an authentic Victorian design.

Drouillard House has been a mainstay in Cumberland Furnace for nearly two centuries, but the refurbished mansion has only been in operation as a guest retreat and conference center since 1997. During that time, thousands of visitors have stayed overnight, and nearly 100 special corporate retreats, day meetings and company seminars have been booked in the luxurious house.
