The space
Long ago, back in Willow Branch, Indiana there was a runt philly horse which was named Sunny Honey owned by harness horse trainer George Wilfong. People joked about the weird way the little mare ran through the meadow. Wilfong explained that Sunny Honey was a "free legged pacer" which meant that her legs on each side moved together instead of trotting or galloping. On a lark, Wilfong wanted to see if the little horse could race and started training her to pull a sulky cart. The rest is history as Sunny Honey went on to dominate the Indiana county fair circuit for years until she eventually retired and lived out her life in that same meadow!

Guests stay in one of a kind, converted horse stalls! Truly a unique, fun life adventure! You also have over 40 acres of beautiful farmland to hike on and enjoy, with farm sights and sounds, picnic areas and snoozy hammocks! Walking distance to Old Hickory Lake, Martha Gallatin Recreation Area and the famous Cherokee Steakhouse & Marina!

Where you’ll be

Lebanon, Tennessee, United States

Starstruck Farm is located 1/4 mile from the big Cumberland River bridge just south of Gallatin, Tennessee. Martha Gallatin Recreation Area and Cherokee Marina and Steakhouse are within easy walking distance from where you will be staying. Gallatin is an "old timey" small Tennessee town with a combination of all of the usual businesses, restaurants and stores and also a great old fashioned downtown area. Starstruck Farm is 32 miles from downtown Nashville and is an easy drive on well maintained state roads and interstate.

Jay's favorites and area info

Gallatin, Tennessee is a rare gem of old timey Tennessee country culture. When you came to my places (Twig City Farm or Starstruck Farm) you probably came down SR109. SR109 is Water Street, which is the main drag in Gallatin. There are tons of great one of a kind restaurants, including a bunch of Mom and Pop restaurants, particularly on S. Water Street (as you arrive in Gallatin) and also in the downtown area. There are lots of antique stores and shops that seem to be locked in the 1960's. I will talk more about my favorites below.......

If you enjoy great locally produced farm produce try Gallatin Farmers Market at 160 W. Franklin and Don's Farm Fresh Produce at 694 Nashville Pike

Wilson and Sumner counties have all kinds of entertainment, shops, clubs, and places of interest. Gallatin, Tennessee, is home base for many country music stars such as Reba McIntyre and the Oak Ridge Boys. Also, it is obvious to the entire world that Nashville is one of world's greatest entertainment centers.........

Mt. Juliet (just east of Nashville) has even more choices and then of course Nashville.......

As far as great local restaurants...... Here is where I go:

GALLATIN - Lots of major franchise restaurants, shops, etc and everything you would find in mid-sized towns.)

Cherokee Steakhouse and Marina - Located by the Cumberland River Bridge and Reba's house and horse farm. Excellent steaks at very affordable prices. If you want wine, beer or cocktails you will need to bring your own at Cherokee.

Top Hog BBQ in Gallatin (best in TN but go at times other than their big rush times or be prepared to wait! Believe it or not cash only ha ha - I offered to wash dishes there one time but they laughed and had mercy on me! Great family owned and operated place!)

Prince Street Pub in Gallatin - A must if you enjoy craft beer and great pizza! The secret hang out of many country stars and their buds. Concrete blocks walls, old and covered with scribbles - I am guessing you will love it!

Country Mom and Pop meat and 3's.............South Water Street is lined with them and they are all great if you want a real taste of old timey Tennessee culture and cooking!

Seafood & drinks by the lake......... You have to check out Awedaddy's at the Gallatin Marina. Open air with excellent food and drinks!

Mexican - Dos Margueritas in Gallatin is the best Mexican food in the area! Fun place and excellent food! The shrimp fajitas are GREAT! Tell 'em Senor Jay sent you!

Italian (carry out only) - Romano's on S. Water Street in Gallatin. This is a place you would never believe had good, let alone excellent Italian food because it is in a corner of a gas station/convenience store. BUT.....everything I have ever had from Romano's has been excellent!


Chinese - Peking in Lebanon is sit down, reasonably priced or Fulin's in Mt. Juliet in Providence Marketplace

Mom and Pop, meat and 3's..........

Courtney's on N. Mt. Juliet Road in Mt. Juliet is excellent always. Cook to order menu items or cafeteria style.

Sunset Restaurant in Lebanon is a table service, old style southern traditional southern cooking. Very good!


Want GREAT BBQ anyone? Try PEG LEG PORKER at 903 Gleaves St, Nashville, TN 37203
CENTER POINT BBQ in Hendersonville, just east of Nashville off of i-65
HOG HEAVEN by Centennial Park in downtown Nashville at 115 27th Ave N, Nashville, TN 37203

Italian - Nashville's #1 rated restaurant overall is Joey's House of Pizza on Elm Hill Pike in Nashville. OFF THE CHARTS EXCELLENT! Joey's is a converted gas station and a hidden gem! They are an Italian family and only open weekdays from 11 to 2:30! It is worth the entertainment value alone going through the cafeteria line.

Also excellent is Angello's Picnic Pizza on Murfreesboro Road in Nashville - another Italian family transplanted from NYC - lunch buffet and are open regular hours.

Fondue - The Melting Pot in downtown Nashville on 2nd Ave.

MORE NASHVILLE INFO................

Nashville "must do's.........
There are two main "epicenters" of Nashville nightlife. The first is downtown at Broadway and 2nd Avenue. Tons of restaurants, clubs, honky tonks, Bridgestone Arena, the Ryman, etc all in a 4 block area. The second is the "Gulch" area a couple of miles away. If you take S. 12th, off Broadway it starts a few blocks away. This is where the Yuppie throngs hang out. Lots of related clubs, restaurants, etc.

BB King's BBQ/Blues on 2nd Ave.

Party Fowl - Nashville hot chicken in the Gulch area at 719 8th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203

Jackalope Micro Brewery at 701 8th. Ave. S (Gulch area) and close to Party Fowl

Ride on the Music City Star? Commuter train that has a depot 4 miles from my place and drops off downtown at Broadway and 1st Avenue by the Hard Rock Cafe.

Also, while visiting Nashville why not stop coming or going and spend a day at Nashville Shores water park? Just follow the signs on I-40 at the Hermitage exit, east of the airport.

Time marches on! One day you are a young "whippersnapper" and the next day you are a crotchety old geez! Anyway, I look forward to having the opportunity to host you in one of my places! Please come visit my Twig City Farm tiny houses or the one and only Horse Stall Suites at Starstruck Farm! I am a real estate investor, guitarist, song writer, patent holding inventor, homeopathic/natural medicine researcher, artist, designer, author, humorist, philosopher, pilot and self taught "chef". I opened my first "business" at age 6 making potholders and selling them to the neighbor ladies in Willow Branch, Indiana. I have always been self employed and engaged in "labors of love" in my ventures. I studied business law in high school and in recent years but I am not a lawyer. I have successfully represented myself in various court proceedings, as well as at the Tennessee Supreme Court of Appeals. I enjoy BBQ'ing, and a few shots of Gray's Peak Small Batch Meyer Lemon vodka once in awhile and have been known to smoke a stogie or two. (A stogie is a cigar for those of you from Delbert, Indiana or Somerset, KY.) I have 4 grown children and at least 11 grandkids and have been single since '99. I live on my "Twig City Farm" where I have several tiny houses for you to choose from. In 2019 I purchased Reba McEntire's former horse farm known as Starstruck Farm and have converted the horse stalls and barn into a Bed & Breakfast! My current projects include: 1. Working on Starstruck Farm. When complete it will be a beautiful 46 acre farm with pick your own fruits/veggies, bed and breakfast, entertainment, great food! 2. I am in the middle planning stages of FongLab. FongLab will be a small research and development campus that will perfect, patent, develop and market hundreds of concepts, ideas, inventions, treatments and products that I have worked on or envisioned over the years. 3. Planning and early development of my U.S. patent for the world's first "Vortex Racing League" facility. 4. Working on writing several books: The first is a booked titled "Beyond Flipping - The Power of Options". The second is a sci-fi efforts entitled "The Laughing Guy". The third is a true story account of my twelve year legal battle against multiple real estate sharks, entitled "David v. Goliaths". The fourth is another sci-fi effort entitled The Quell. Other than those and a few other projects, I am just a lazy bones. My Airbnb host philosophy about interactions with guests is "to give you space to enjoy your vacation, getaway or trip but at the same time be readily available if you need something!" Why do I have that philosophy? I am sure that you do not book my places to hang out with me but if you have an urge to "shake and howdy" please let me know, as I would love to meet you. My staff and I never intrude on your privacy and will not knock on your door unless there is some very good reason, if I am unable to contact you by phone, text or email. My helpers and I make every effort to leave you alone to enjoy yourselves. My life motto is, "Better to climb and fall than to never climb at all! One of my favorite thoughts is, "If you pick up a hammer, choose to cut diamonds." My advice to politicians is "Shut up and fix the potholes!"

During your stay

My philosophy is to be available if needed but otherwise we try our best to be non-intrusive. I am always happy to say hello and "shake and howdy" as I am able to!
