It started raining while we were here so we only saw half the gardens. The landscaping is impeccable. It looks like there’s no blade of grass out of place. The flowers are so gorgeous. It’s such a tranquil place to just walk around and enjoy the beauty around you. And the mansion-holy cow. Some rooms have original rugs, so much detail everywhere you look-even 400+ year old paintings on the walls. Got the talking to a wonderful worker here (believe his name was Chuck) who gave us great pointers on downtown Nashville as well. He knew the area, and the mansion, incredibly well.

I can honestly say that not doing this in this type of setting with all of the support and encourage along the way it may have never happened for me. CLK has an annual  Top 12 contest for all leasing agents and assistant managers for the entire company and the top 12 best performers are recognized throughout the entire company of at least 200+ employees. I have always considered myself to be a very well rounded person so to my surprise all 13 of us piled up in a 15 passenger party bus type van and we head far out in the woods where most of us lost phone service.  I can say that I truly enjoyed myself with all the activities that was designed for our group that focused heavily on team building and trust. We even got a chance to over come some of our fears of heights and a lot of first timers were able to zip line and have fun all at the same time. Gwen our facilitator had so much patience with each and everyone of us and she always asked after each course what did we get out of the exercise and how will we be able to use what was learned in our daily work.”

I booked a private party for my best friend’s bachelorette/girls’ night. Staci worked with me to create a painting for us to do that was inspired by the brides interests. She was flexible with us on the timing since we had other plans for the evening as well. All of that was before the actual event. During the party, Staci was fun and patient. She was helpful without being intrusive. She allowed us to have our “girl fun” while managing to keep us on track. Did I mention that she let us bring in a buffet of desserts and prosecco? I highly recommend the studio. I hope to visit again soon in the future! I am including a picture of my painting from that night (for reference, I had never painted a canvas before).”
