Nestled in the beautiful southern countryside of North Georgia, is the historically significant Smithonia district. Begun as a farm in the 1860’s, what is now known as Tucker Plantation was the largest farm east of the Mississippi River. The farm produced cattle, cotton, and corn all in abundance. The farm even had it’s own private railroad and brick manufacturing plant. The farm was purchased in the 1980s by famed country singer, Kenny Rogers, where he made it his home for twenty-five years on the adjacent plantation. In 2001, another Southern gentleman, Jewett Tucker, acquired the property and established Tucker Plantation. Mr. Tucker has spent the last nine years restoring the three original brick barns and horse farm spanning over 300 acres. He has transformed Tucker Plantation into a historic village that blends architectural and horticultural features of the 1800s.

Here in this sublime pastoral setting, Tucker Plantation hosts several event facilities amid beautiful lakes, pastures, and 200 year-old oak trees. There are vast countryside recreational areas for hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and just simply relaxing in a way that the contemporary city does not allow. The heart of Tucker Plantation lies in the three original brick barns which have been impeccably restored by Mr. Tucker. The majestic facilities are authentically sophisticated with their heart of pine floors, soaring dome ceilings, exposed original wood beams, and massive wrought iron chandeliers.

Conveniently located just fifteen minutes from Athens, GA, Tucker Plantation is the perfect setting for elegant wedding ceremonies and receptions. With picturesque landscape and majestic event facilities Tucker Plantation is truly one of a kind.

We offer tours by appointment only. To schedule your next visit please contact our Director of Operations, Conley Perry, at 706-206-1443. We look forward to welcoming you to Tucker Plantation. Read less

The on-site manager was very helpful, even though we didn't hire her specifically to be our coordinator. She was still responsive and helpful in the planning process. They were also flexible with us; our engagement was short so we had to be flexible in the planning process and they were very accommodating. We got married on a Sunday, and there was not a wedding the Saturday before, so they let us come a day early to begin set up, which was wonderful not to have to worry about it on the wedding day. I think it was a little overpriced, because all it included were tables and 150 chairs (not enough for my guests, and they would not move them between outdoor ceremony and indoor reception- you have to choose one or the other). But, I do not think the cost was outrageous because it truly is a beautiful venue, and it includes a ton of space for the bridal party to prepare.
I did go to a wedding there once on a rainy day, and I got rained on during the whole ceremony, even though we were inside. There is an opening in the roof that is made to look decorative. I was surprised they had no way to close it in case of rain. So, that is something to plan around if you decide to have an event here on a rainy day.
Otherwise, a gorgeous venue and great staff.

I had searched extensively for a perfect wedding venue that I could incorporate my visions of a rustic, but chic country wedding and was so excited to have found Tucker Plantation. Tucker Plantation was absolutely the BEST wedding venue. It gave me that feeling that I had been searching for. Even from the first visit, the staff instantaneously made us feel welcome with their genuine pleasant and personable approach. We automatically fell in love with the beautiful scenery, from the barns to the fields, and even the extra personal touches that you could add to your day; like bring the horses into the field closer to the barn.

We hired Conley, who is the onsite coordinator for Tucker, to assist with the wedding coordination. From the onset, Conley was very professional, personable and it was very obvious that she had a lot of experience with wedding planning. While she was one of the reasons we selected Tucker Plantation, we were delighted to find out that she was so easy to work with. Conley was so knowledge about which florist, cater, and photographer to use to help us stay within our budget. Even when she left for maternity leave, she was still able to answer all my questions and concerns promptly. And the day of the wedding, I could not have asked for a better person to coordinate. She listened to what I wanted and handled all situations gracefully from the preacher yelling at her to the farewell car getting lost.

Overall, our wedding was perfect if not better than I had anticipated. Tucker Plantation provided us with the perfect fall wedding we had dreamed about. The Plantation gave us that beautiful location that we can relive through pictures over and over again. Our friends and family are still raving about what an amazing time they had and how it was one of the best weddings and locations they have been to. They too feel in love with Tucker Plantation effortless charm.

Tucker Plantation is absolutely stunning and everything you could ask for as far as backdrop for a wedding is concerned! The renovated barns are beautiful, truly. It's a good thing this place is beautiful b/c otherwise I would never in a million years get married here due to their extremely poor business practice. Many things that we were led to believe we would have access to we, in fact, did not. Rooms were gutted and not refurnished. All without our notification. It's a beautiful place but definitely NOT worth the money!

Tucker Plantation responded with the following comments:

On behalf of past management, we sincerely apologize for your unfavorable experience. Unfortunately your wedding took place when the farm was in a difficult transition during a nasty divorce between the past owners and unfortunately the fallout from the divorce affected your experience in a negative way (ie: the ex-wife taking furniture without notice). However, Tucker Plantation has been under new ownership/management since October of 2011 and we can assure you that we pride ourselves on providing impeccable service to all of our clients. Since the new management has taken over, we have experienced zero issues like the unfortunate circumstances you endured. Again, on behalf of the past management, we apologize for your unfavorable experience as this is not indicative of the current way we manage our business.
