Plan Your Next Getaway At Overlook Farm
An idyllic oasis set on the banks of the Mississippi River, Overlook Farm has more than earned its reputation for being an exemplary estate. Here, the farmers work tirelessly in the fields, 26 hoop houses and 5 greenhouses, to provide Nathalie’s in the Central West End and the onsite restaurant, The Courtyard, with organic ingredients. But the chefs, farmers and staff are also proving just how diverse life on a farm can be.
On the 327-acre grounds, Proprietor Nathalie Pettus has cultivated a stunning atmosphere that draws inspiration from the region’s heritage. The four inns on the property offer an ideal location for groups or couples to get back to nature, and two of the four structures date back to the 1800s, lending to an authentic experience in the country.
On site, fine dining couldn’t be any fresher. The Courtyard serves up the season’s newest offerings—from wood-fired pizza and eggplant Parmesan to fruit hand pies. During these warm spring and summer months, slowly savor an organic and sustainably grown wine next to an open fire pit, or cozy up to the serene waterfall over brunch.
Located an hour and a half from the city, Overlook Farm is a destination that’s in reach even for just a weekend. With live music performances happening each weekend—Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons—now’s the perfect time to make the voyage.
