On the Farm – Touring with Missy & Scott Reeves

I first met this beautiful gal in in 1986, when I joined the cast of Days of Our Lives, and she was (and still is) the doll baby of the universe. She was only 18, but had already been on the show for a year.

About 10 years ago, Missy and her adorable husband, Scott, decided to leave the rat race of Southern California and head to Nashville, Tenn.  Scott, who had been doing soaps for quite a while, is also an amazing singer/song writer … who had evidently always wanted to be a farmer. Nashville was a great fit.

A few years ago, they bought some acreage on the top of a hill and built an amazing “gothic farmhouse.” Ever since Missy shared her stories and photos of the build, I have been dying to go for a vist. This past weekend my dream came true, as NBC hosted an event in Nashville and asked a group of us to go.  We had the best time!

For starters it is such a treat for us to get out and meet the fans of the show … we work in a big warehouse and don’t see anyone, so it is so nice to get out for a meet and greet!  Then, the bonus was Missy took me on a fabulous tour of Nashville and surrounding towns, all the way up to the incredible “homestead” she and her beautiful family have created.  They are truly the sweetest, most welcoming people … I didn’t want to leave.

I can see why people are moving there in droves. It is so lush and beautiful with so many hip neighborhood … if I wasn’t such an ocean lover I might be tempted. Anyway, here is a smidge of our little adventure!



  1. What a great video! I’ve watch DOOL since the beginning. Does Missy commute to California every week? Do you still make apple pies? I bought one of yours several years ago for my husband’s birthday. He loved it!

    We moved to Nashville 2 yrs ago from ATL, and love it every day, so much to do. I have always watched DOOL, from at my Mother’s feet, through college, and recordings after work. I love Missy’s acting of the JH role, and felt like, “she could be a person who would fit in here”!! Well, my intuition was spot on, just found this!! Thx, MB! We were roam, shop, eat, enjoy all the same places… now I won’t break my neck in a head whip, thinking “is that….?” Leiper’s Fork is heaven on earth. #wearetheNJBrennanstoo

    What a beautiful home! My family sat next to this lovely couple today at a high school graduation this morning. My sister-in-law and myself, having grown up watching Days, became star struck… Upon leaving the graduation we just had to say hello and Melissa Reeves is the most gracious and lovely woman. What a treat to meet such a super sweet lady. Her husband was equally as gracious and I have to say those two make a stunning couple. Thank you both for being so kind to two complete strangers who couldn’t contain their excitement at seeing you this morning.

    God Bless.💜

  11. So beautiful and green!

  12. Connie D

    Love this video, thank for sharing😊

  13. I am new to this blog. I have a feeling I’ve missed out on a lot. I really enjoyed this video. How gracious of the Reeves to let us into their home and show us their wonderful community. I can see why it is considered a great place to live.

  14. Thank you for sharing. Absolutely beautiful home and family with a humble heart. God Bless💚

  15. How wonderful Mary Beth to be given such an intimate tour of Missy and Scott’s home. I so enjoyed learning more about this beautiful part of the US! Many thanks! 🙂 xx

    • That was so fun! Scott always posts little videos and pics on his instagram, their farm is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing a bigger view of it! I am covering that chicken coop lol. My husband and son built one but it’s not as cute 😉

  16. Thank you for sharing that Mary Beth. That was so much fun to watch and get to know Missy more! 😊Thank you both for allowing us to share in your time.

  17. What a gorgeous place she has! My cousin lives in Franklin. I enjoyed meeting all of the cast this weekend and Nashville is great!

  19. Fran Hopson

    Thank you so much,Mary Beth. You Days people are the best. Been watching for 46 years and I was thrilled to get a tour of Missy and Scott’s farm. I watched her grow up and have always adored this sweet lady. So happy Kayla is back in Salem. I have two granddaughters named Lexie and Kayla as their Mom was exposed to Days all her life!

  20. I love it here in Nashville. I don’t live very far from Tim n Faith just over the hills..I met missy and Scott last year at Puckets in Columbia. If you come back to visit we have an awesome Winery called Amber Falls Winery it’s an awesome place in the hills lol you have to check it out

  21. I tend to share the Thursday posts with family and friends as soon as I get the chance and watch/read again with them. So this is my second time watching, and I really loved getting the mini tour, so thank you very much Mary Beth for sharing this with us!

    I love the bits of history that Missy shared while showing you different spots throughout the tour, it is always awesome to hear about what makes that certain spot special. Also, Missy and Scott have the most beautiful property! Her decorating ideas are awesome, and I was really loving the lighting fixtures!

  22. Mary Beth, I have a great idea, if you loved Nashville, just move a few hours farther south to my hometown, Andalusia, Al. Even less traffic, plenty of green pastures, rolling creeks and lots of southern hospitality. w
    We have 3 acres, chickens but no cows!We are only an hour and a half from the most beautiful beaches ever, Destin Fl. I’d even agree to be so kind and be your bff to show you around our town and even drive you to Destin and show you the best place to sail your boat!! lol

    I loved seeing Missy and Scott Reeves’ farm, but now I want to see more of the actual farmhouse! Fingers crossed for Part 2 next week?

  28. Samesies, Mary Beth, I am an ocean lover but have been tempted by Nashville in particular because it’s SUCH a fun town and my experience of TN generally is that it’s gorgeous and green, like you show us here. Awesome trip and kudos to the Reeves family for following the dream!
