Fontanel Mansion is a 27,000 square foot log home formerly owned by Country Music Hall of Fame(R) member Barbara Mandrell, and is Nashville's only country music mansion tour giving visitors a sneak peek into the lives of country music greats. The home, situated on the 136 acre property, is nestled in the rolling hills of the Whites Creek Valley. With The Inn at Fontanel, the Woods Amphitheater, Pritchard's Distillery the Pepsi Studio Gallery, Cafe Fontanella, Music City Ziplines by Adventure Works, The Trails and Metro Parks Greenway, it is easy to see why Fontanel is becoming one of Nashville's premier destinations. We offer a family and dog friendly atmosphere located just minutes from downtown Nashville in Whites Creek.

A friend had recommended we take the Fontanel Mansion. It was a nice drive from south of Nashville, the area was pretty and the tour was good. My husband, a fan of country music, enjoyed the tour more than I did. The house was impressive and it was nice that some of the family items were still around. I would... More

A group of friends and I visited the mansion today. We were warmly greeted then driven to the mansion by a very nice driver where we met our "Tur" guide Steven Whitson..... he was wonderful. Before getting off the bus, he asked everyone's name and that made the tour more personal as he called us by name for the next... More

While the house from the outside is stunning as you drive up, and the grandeur of the great room is beautiful, this was an underwhelming tour for me personally. I think if you were a big Barbra Mandrell fan it would have been more entertaining to be in her house. It was fun to see the architecture and hear about... More

Groupon offered a tour of Fontanel. My wife and I decided to give it a try. What a great decision that was! This is one of the best tours I have ever experienced. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and talented (He played the piano and sang for us in Fontanel's large entertainment room). The house was amazing! The tour was... More

Very enjoyable tour (led by Ben) of this 33,000 square foot log cabin, designed and built for Barbara Mandrell and her family. This is a "hands on" tour where you're encouraged to touch things, sit in the chairs, and even eat crackers in Barbara's bed! One thought as you plan your day...If you want to tour (and have a tasting)... More

Had a Saturday morning outing for brunch with friends, food was great, staff friendly, live music was an unexpected bonus. The shops had some great souvenirs for sale and the tasting experience in the brewery shop topped off a great visit.

I must say I was not a fan of Barbara Mandrell but remember my parent's watching the show growing up. The house tour was impressive and just like stepping back in time. Our tour guide Janelle was great and even sang an awesome song for us! It was just us in the group and you get to walk around, check... More

Other people's reviews made me want to visit Fontanel. Barbara Mandrell's husband worked with the architect in designing this home and it is so well thought out and unique. The log cabin home is magnificent. Large with soaring beamed ceilings, lots of windows. I imagine in the summer it would feel like living in a tree house. We were in... More
