Highland Realm is a place of healing, quietly tucked away in the mystical forests and glades of Middle Tennessee in the Township of Hampshire.

Surrounded by ponds and creeks, it is a place where both ancient and futuristic healing methods are successfully used to bring balance and harmony to your life as well as the land itself.

We offer cabin rentals, wellness seminars, and the most beautiful you-pick blueberries in Middle Tennessee. 



Highland Realm is protected under the Tennessee Land Trust

In 1974, Dr. Deanna Naddy and her family purchased the 153-acre farm from a descendant of Samuel McClanahan whose family owned the property since the early 1800’s. We  raised three sons here on the farm. In 1995, Dr. Naddy continued running the farm until she retired from a career in nursing education in 1999. At that time she started a healing retreat center offering day and weekend classes as well as multiple alternative healing therapies, establishing Highland Realm. 

Feeling strongly about the sacredness of the land, Deanna placed the farm in a conservation easement with the Tennessee Land Trust in 2011, ensuring Highland Realm will be protected from development for generations to come.
