Justin did a great job and is a very good up and coming singer (he sang for us). All the guides are in the music business, so they are well informed. Beautiful home, grounds and a good distillery---the liquor is served at the Hutton Hotel. At least try the free samples and take the tour.

Jennifer was a friendly and informative tour guide. Love that it is a "home", not a showpiece. Being able to hold a guitar for a photo was exciting even to someone who is not a big country fan. :-). Lots of personal stories about Barbara's family - just good old fashioned fun!

What an amazing home! And a first to be told to feel free to sit on the furniture and even hold certain guitars hanging on the walls. Very nice experience with our guide Jennifer who gave us great information about the history of the home. Having the guides sing a song for you is a nice touch too. Didn't try... More

We saw it all in Nashville, but largely due to our guide Ben's excellence, the Fontanel Mansion was an A+ event. The log home is an absolute must in our book, combining stunning architecture with some fabulous country keepsakes. By the way, it's the only tour we've ever been on where the guide says, "You're welcome to touch anything and... More
