Where Every Family Matters

Cove Creek Farm Fun Zone, Pirate Ship + Easter Hayride

Indoor and outdoor play zones, hayrides to see the Easter Bunny & lots more are in store for a family adventure to Monteagle, Tenn.

Ahoy, mateys! Just last summer, Cove Creek Farm, located at 933 West Main St. in Monteagle, TN (approximately an hour-and-a-half East from Nashville) opened an indoor Play Barn and an outdoor Fun Zone complete with a pirate ship! Officially called the Adventure Galley, this multi-level ship reaches 25 feet high and connects to a castle with turrets. Kids can have a ball peeking through portholes, climbing the rock wall or cargo nets to the tube slide and more.

Cove Creek Farm’s Outdoor Fun Zone

Just in time for spring weather, plan an outing for the kids when you can to visit Cove Creek Farm. In addition to the pirate ship, there’s “Hobbit Hill,” where kids can enter the world of J.R.R. Tolkien through a natural playscape of rocks, logs and tunnels. You may not want your kids jumping on furniture at home, but at Cove Creek, they can jump on a 30X40 inflatable jumping pillow to their heart’s content. Furthermore, there’s a tire playground and classic yard games set up for play.

Had enough of the outdoors? Head to the Play Barn! This giant, indoor play zone includes slides, mazes, obstacles, ball pits and more. At “Imagination Station,” kids can interact and explore with a pick-your-own vegetables in the make believe garden. Or gather fruit from the apple tree. They can sell goods at the Farmer’s Market, take care of animals in the Vet’s Office or ride a horse or bull in the stable.

Easter Fun

There’s lots to do at Cove Creek Farm, and for special holiday fun, the farm is offering Easter hayrides to see the Easter Bunny. Children will receive a small gift from the bunny’s basket while supplies last. Hayrides run, weather-permitting, every hour and take place every weekend leading up to Easter beginning March 16. The cost is $7 per person, ages 2 and older; children should be accompanied by an adult. The farm opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 6 p.m.

Cove Creek Farm is family owned and operated. The family raises cattle, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys and laying hens. The Farm and indoor Play Barn are open year round. The outdoor Fun Zone is open seasonally, weather permitting. Admission to the Play Areas is $12 a person.
