"The hotel has an interior corridor with outdoor pool and many new amenities. We now have in all rooms high speed wireless internet, microwave and refrigerator and iron and ironing boards. We also serve fresh hot breakfast every morning with sausage, eggs, biscuit, gravy and much more. Walking distance dining options include Sonic Drive-In and Mi Cocina Mexican Restaurant. We also accept pets with a minimal charge." Call the hotel directly and mention you are here for the Shady Acre Sheep Dog Trial. Your room will be discounted and pet fees will be waived if the dog stays in a crate.

McEwen Farm Bed and Breakfast​, Shady Acres, TN, 
Located just a few miles from Shady Acres. Limited space at this B & B, so don't delay in booking your stay. The McEwens are very involved with hunting dogs, so they understand the needs of those who travel and compete with their dogs. Not only are pets welcome here, but they have a boarding kennel available if the hotel you choose does not accept pets. Make sure to inform them that you are here for the Shady Acre Sheep Dog Trial for special rates.

Columbia, TN, to the southeast, is 20 miles (about 30 minutes) away.

Nashville, TN, to the northeast, is about 50 - 60 miles away.


Shady Acres dry lot camping is available here on the farm. The fields are level. (Unless the weather is extremely wet, mud should not be a problem. We do however have a tractor if anyone does get stuck.)

Your full size camper or RV will get around the corners, and fit through our double gates with plenty of room
