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.

Closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

I have been there, twice, as it's a great place to take guests. We have lunch, then tour, and afterward partake in the Happy Hour. The log cabin is amazing, and it's hands on, so touch anything that pleases you. The staff and guides are very friendly. They let me use 2 forms of discounts, so bring your AAA card,... More

Our family was doing sightseeing in Nashville and the lady at reception suggested this place. We had some spare time so we went and glad we did, the place is gob smacking. Our guide was very funny and informative, he even played the piano in the great room. The indoor pool and shooting range was a surprise and the carvings... More

I have to admit my mother was/is a bigger Barbara Mandrell fan than I am. I live about 45 minutes from the mansion and my friend and I had been discussing going and taking our kids- 4 all together under 15- for awhile. Let me tell you, if you're ever passing by, STOP! Not only is it beautiful but there's... More

The tour was interesting, and for Barbara Mandrell fans it would be really great. It seemed a little pricey but there are senior and AAA discounts. Nice location.

I had such a good time! Our tour guide was amazing. He was very knowledgeable, personable and extremely talented. He is a song writer and singer. He sang us a couple of his songs, my favorite was "Grandma's Boy". A unique experience and different than most "exhibits" as you get to touch some of the items on display.

Our tour guide shared a wealth of information about the property, the family and other stars. We were able to spend time in each room, touch items, take photos and ask questions.

Was considering using Fontanel for a Wedding Rehearsal Dinner. My friend and I went to taste their food---EXCELLENT! We did not choose the location for our rehearsal venue because it was too far from the Wedding Venue.

Fontanel Mansion was a fun place to visit. My tour guide, Steve, was fantastic. He was enthusiastic and passionate about his job. He sang and played guitar a beautiful song while we looked around the Great Room. He is very talented:) The Mansion was vintage 80's which was cool but could use some refurbishing and a little more decorating especially... More
