We were fortunate in being the only two on our tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. He also played the piano very well. The mansion was well worth the price of admission. I would recommend it to anyone. It was a very rewarding experience.

Took my mother-in-law on the Mansion tour and ended the visit with an Italian dinner at Cafe Fontanella! Enjoyed. Y'all.

We went to Prichards Distillery which was ok. There's not much there as far as a distillery but you do get to taste all the Prichards tasty beverages. If you have never experienced the tasty adult beverages made by Prichards you are a fool and should go NOW!!

My wife and I had a great time here. Steve, our tour guide, was very informative and friendly. The house was amazing. We also visited the distillery on the property and enjoyed it too.

My husband and I had a great time touring Fontanel Mansion. The home was beautiful, and the tour was very unique because you are allowed, and even encouraged, to touch or take photos of some of the memorabilia. The customer service was also great as the employees were very helpful and friendly. We very much enjoyed our visit!

The tour guides are all musicians themselves and give a terrific tour with stories and music added. All the rooms carry history and you feel like you are living along with the family

The home is an unusual log cabin and very big ,but I wouldn't pay that much money to see a home for someone who is not that well known especially if you have teenagers. I like Barbara Mandrell and her kids run the place. I was with a group that got a discount the day I went. However, the lunch... More

A real variety of things to do revolving around country music, the Prichards Distillery had a great tour and nice samples. The restirant was nice with very reasonable peices.

The house is nice, and it's different because you can actually touch things and sit on the furniture. The downside is the tour itself. The tour guide I had was apparently an aspiring musician and he seemed to be more interested in selling his CD. We were also forced to listen to him while he played the piano and sang... More

Went on a tour of the property and also attended a few concerts here. Both were great. Would recommend arriving early for dinner onsite. The restaurant gets slammed prior to shows.
