Our elegant Greek Revival-style mansion, built-in 1854, serves as the perfect country inn for a romantic getaway, special events, and corporate meetings in the Mercer County area.
The Greek Revival mansion, built in 1854, is a luxurious country inn with three restaurants. It is furnished with period furniture, including President James Buchanan’s table (once at the White House), Strauss Austrian crystal chandeliers, and a mural depicting the antebellum South.
We stayed in Rhett’s Room and we will be back. “GWTW” is my favorite fiction book and I LOVED the movie. We enjoy seeing all the treasures. You are so gracious to share them with us. Your staff is so courteous, and we feel like we are truly receiving old-time “Southern Hospitality”! Thank you!
Another holiday memory thanks to all the staff of Tara who helped to make this our best stay ever. Memories will be “timeless” once again. Tara’s elegance has provided us with the total relaxation needed.
Tara recalls the romantic notions of the antebellum South. Built in 1854, about the time of its fictional namesake, Tara was the home of Charles Koonce. The décor is Southern plantation and its ambience created by afternoon tea served by a hostess in an antebellum gown – Scarlet O’Hara-style.
